This weeks Reporter- Dave Miley

Song - Dave Penland                       Pledge- Bob Gallagher                       Invocation - Bob Stein

THE DAY IN REVIEW: Noodles, salad, and apple strudel was the cuisine of the day.  No guests were in attendance.  Parchen introduced Gallagher as a guest and promptly got fined for it.  Magee fined Penland for not using a pitch pipe when starting the song.  George Hannes gave a report on the Raffle.  We need door prizes.  Next Thursday is the deadline.  Mason fined table #1 just to fill the pot.  Laskey reported on BINGO.  140 players showed up Wednesday night.  We deposited $6,000.  Progressive is up to $11,800.  C team is up next.  Carl Duncan injured himself working out at the gym.  Various other accusations, blasphemies, and false allegations were voiced by several members.  Over all, it was a normal day.

Sertoman of the Day
SOD: President Joe introduced Bob Gallagher in place of the scheduled Doug Harder.  Harder arrived late.  "Gallagher is the name - Justice is the game."  Bob enjoys the distinction of being the longest standing, or is it sitting, District Attorney in the state.  He has been involved in several very high profile cases over the years.  Bob is now practicing law.  Parchen fell for his "fruit jar" joke.  He is a past President of our illustrious club.  Bob is married to Shirley and has a son, John, and a daughter, Moraine.  Bob Buckland got the $5.00.

 

Program

John Vierthaler introduced Arnold Scott, National Transportation Safety Board, "NTSB" inspector. Arnold is a senior Air Safety Inspector for the Central Mountain Region.  He was the editor of "Pilot Magazine." Arnold gave a very interesting talk on some of the accident cases he has been involved with.  Several questions were generated from such an interesting talk.  Thanks John and Arnold.
