Norm Schillo, born and raised in north Denver (and proud of it) in 1927. He is proud to now be an octogenarian. He attended public school in north Denver. Of the 5, 2 have been demolished. He went to Skinner Jr. High and North High.

Norm went into the Navy in 1945, fresh out of high school, for WWII. The war ended while he was in boot camp and although he didn’t get to Sail the High Seas, he did get to Puget Sound. He messed around for a couple years after the Navy. His father finally got a hold of him and convinced him to pick a trade. He went into bricklaying. He started his own company after 7 years. He ran that business for 13 years. Then had a marina for 2 years and then sold real estate for 2 years. Then he got into homebuilding and did well for 15 years before the economy dropped out so he retired.

He had 3 daughters with his first wife, Mary Lou. He met his present wife Ann while playing Tennis with Tommy Fry at Pinehurst and they were married in 1997. From that marriage he inherited several more family members. He’s now been married to Ann for 11 years.

Norm has 3 daughters, 5 g-kids and 10 gg-kids on his side. Ann had 4 sons and 10 g-kids but no great grandkids. 8 will be at the kids Christmas party.

Bill Anderson brought him into the club.


Program:   Cliff started out by saying “fornification”…..ops…he meant “for more information”…..(heck of a way to start an introduction). Anyway, he introduced Michael Driscoll, a movement specialist, who specializes in Pilates & Gyrotonic training for fitness conditioning and rehabilitation.

Michael started dancing in college and found his passion. He was such a great dancer he was asked to dance in several dance companies for 17 years. He turned his talents to the world of fitness and rehabilitation and in 1995, he earned a certification in Principles of Intelligent Movement. In 1998, he obtained certification in the Polestar Education Curriculum, an international certifying body for training in the Pilates Method. In 1999, he became certified in Gyrotonic training directly with Julie Horvath, the found of the Gyrotonic Expansion System.

Both Pilates and Gyrotonic training are unique systems of movement training. They both incorporate mind-body movement integration, and improve balance, coordination, strength and flexibility. Some benefits include: Improved core strength; Improved posture and alignment; Increased range of motion and flexibility; Better balance and coordination; Reduced tension from stress; Relief from chronic problems relating to soft tissue injuries; Improved athletic and dance performance.

An elderly man on a Moped, looking about

100 years old, pulls up next to a doctor at a street light.

The old man looks over at the sleek shiny

car the doctor is driving and asks, 'What kind of car ya got there, sonny?'

The doctor replies, 'A Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!'

'That's a lot of money,' says the old man. Why does it cost so much?'

'Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!' the doctor states boastfully.

The Moped driver asks, 'Mind if I take a look inside?'

'No problem,' replies the doctor.

So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around.

Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man says, 'That's a pretty nice car all right, but I'll stick with my Moped.'

Just then the light changes, and the doctor decides to show the old man just what his car can do.

He floors it, and within 30 seconds, the speedometer reads 160 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be getting closer!

He slows down to see what it could be, and WOOOOSSSHHH, something whips by him going much faster!

'What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari?' the doctor asks himself.

He presses harder on the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 250 mph.

Then, up ahead he sees that it's the old man on the Moped!

Amazed that the Moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the Moped at 275 mph.

He's feeling pretty good until he looks in his Mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN !

Astounded by the speed of this old guy, he floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 320 mph.

Not ten seconds later, he sees the Moped bearing down on him again!

The Ferrari has topped out, and there's nothing he can do!

Suddenly, the Moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end.

The doctor stops and jumps out and unbelievably the old man is still alive.

He runs up to the banged-up old guy and says, 'My God, man! I'm a doctor! Is there anything I can do for you?'

The old man whispers, 'Unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror.'
