Harder).  A variety of fines - Miley for advertising,  Pollak for crashing the line, Dowdey for prompting Table one for the usual.  a few others were indicted but somehow never came to trial.  B Parchen was on the links were were told. so D. Laskey presented the nominating committee report.  Elections next week.  It was good to see Jason Hand at the meting.  Somehow he was able to win the handshake prize. Lucky Bob Buckland was able to carry away the Pot O Gold.

Today's Program was Gilbert Chavez.  Gilbert is the son of Sam Chavez, who was an Arapahoe member many years ago.  Gil spoke of and for 'light for Life'.  In 1982, he fell from Devil's Head sustaining severe damages.  Rangers wanted to evacuate by ambulance, but 'Gilbert insisted on helicopter evacuation, a move that allowed him to be treated before it was too late to avoid amputation.    He went on to a complete recovery and a successful military career.  Gil now sits on the boards of flight for Life and St. Anthony's Central Hospital.  Special thanks to Gilbert for relating his story and filling us in on the Flight for Life program.
