This weeks Reporter- Carl Duncan

Song - Carl Duncan          Pledge - Dowdey        Invocation - Rev. Robinson

Today Las Brisas provided us with the ingredients to prepare do-it-yourself burritos. Bottles of Chardonay wine were on each table and went very well with the burritos. The wine was purchased by the proceeds in the fine box. Because Table 1 has provided most of that money, it was only fitting that DAVE MILEY presented a toast to table 1.
The plight of the victims of Hurricane Katrina was much on the minds of all present. GEORGE HANNES proposed that both the club and the foundation donate $5K each to the relief effort. Since this requires board action, JIM ROBINSON proposed that we just pass the hat and whatever is raised will be matched and donated to the Lutheran World Relief. $288.50 to be matched was the result.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: JIM REES reported that the entertainment books are ready for distribution. BILL PARCHEN reminded us that Monday night, Sept 26, will be Bronco TV night at the South Restaurant. GOVERNOR BALLEW invited one and all to attend the Fall District Conference on Saturday the 10th ant the 
Wyndham Hotel DTC. ED BEZJAK announced that Bingo E team deposited $3700 and that the progressive is up to $7300. DICK MASON fined Table 1 $.50 each for uncontrolled conversation during the announcements. The more we all work at this, the sooner we will have wine for lunch.

Sertoman of the Day

BOB SCHLAGETER mounted the podium and informed us that he was born in Denver in 1942. He attended Lakewood schools and obtained a degree in Biological Science from CSU. His military service was in the Army National Guard. After graduation, Bob was hired by the USDAand was posted in California wher he inspected their various fruits and nuts. He returned to Denver in 1968 and has worked for the Denver Health Department. PHIL GRIMM won the flying fiver. 


JOHN VIERTHALER introduced Stacey Stegman, the spokeswoman and public relations officer of the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). The focus of Ms. Stegman's remarks was the use of tolls to finance the construction and maintenance of new highways. The economic decline of 2000 - 2002 and the Tabor amendment have depleted the funds available for construction and maintenance of our highways. E-470 has been very successful and CDOT is currently considering 12 additional projects to be financed by tolls such as the completion of the ring of C-470 thru Golden and the conversion of the the I-25 HOV lanes to toll roads in the Spring.

Pot of God went to DAVE PENLAND. 
DOUG HARDER was awarded the handshake prize by DAVE MILEY. 
The prize was a chromium plated Fork-U device which Doug will find repeated occasions for use.
