First a warm welcome to new members Tracy and Ken Tipton and Danny Ruiz. We got to meet them briefly at Saturday’s Chapter meeting and look forward to getting to know them better.
As announced at the meeting, all voting for our 2017 Board has closed and we are reviewing the 15 in-person votes from Saturday along with the electronic votes tomorrow evening at 6pm at the dealership and the announcement will be made this week of the incoming board members. We thank all members who voted and look forward to 2017.
Another key factor about tomorrow is that it is the deadline if you want to bowl with the Chapter on Wednesday. Jerry needs to know if you are participating for lane allocations. If you wish to bowl, please contact Jerry Umland at email@example.com or 813.892.2835. Anyone is welcome to come and cheer the bowlers on; no need to register with Jerry unless you are bowling.
This Friday, Larry is leading our group to participate in the Veteran’s Day Parade. Please see his message below:
From the VA Parade event captain, Larry Blakely:
We are collecting the list of participants for the VA Parade electronically. Pre-registering will help with the breakfast reservation and parade paperwork. However, nobody will be turned away if you have not pre-registered. I have already added the names of the people that I believe spoke up as planning on attending. Please review. If I added you incorrectly feel free, to delete your name.
Cigar City LOH collected $400 for the Hurricane relief fund in North Carolina! Thank you Cigar City for your generous support. We are sure they will benefit from our donations.
Our annual picnic this this Saturday at Hooper’s Hollow. Jerry prepared the attached map and we look forward to seeing you there. And if that is not enough fun, come to Tampa HD on Saturday for an afternoon of football under the Tiki Hut. Bring a dish to share and chairs and enjoy watching the Bucs host the Bears and other NFL games with your friends. Please see the attached flyer provided by Crusher, our organizer.
Ride Safe, Denise
