Treas Paul has the tickets for Gunsmoke IX.  Posters and flyers are available also

Membership Chair Cathy Bailes:  No Report


Really great joke about Barack Obama, guns and Texas.


.Yvonne – has all registration ‘stuff’ ready for the Convention next weekend.

.Van – his daughter has decided to enlist in the military rather than attend college.

.Bill S $100 – says if you want Padre tickets get them from Warren as there are added perks.  ..Also Bill told of his Grandson and how proud he is of the young man & his accomplishments.

.Chris accused Kiley of having his phone ring during the meeting only to find it was Ray H’s phone (Tail Twister Moreau knew this from the other side of the room).  So Kiley wanted a simple apology which Chris finally gave him.  Sometimes a plan just doesn’t work out right!

.Abraham just returned from a vacation  in Kauai where he ran into Lion Daryl and his wife Tammy.  ..Also Abraham was in Las Vegas for a basketball owners meeting.

.Cathy – Ron Snow won the drawing last week (one of several times) and then leaves and she wants that to stop (leaving after winning).  Ron replied he always gives the winnings back to the club and that was confirmed by Treas Paul.  This sounds like a Chris/Kiley plan that didn’t work out as expected.

***THANKS To Past President Phil Smith for covering for me the past couple of weeks in the writing of this newsletter.  I love his humor and free style and am sure you enjoyed the change in format also.  Yvonne***
