Guests:   Pat Greenway and Dick Johnson (still getting free meals)

Quote:   “Once, when I was young I was kidnapped. The villains sent my parent a ransom note. The parental units immediately sprang into action – they contacted the local newspaper and took out a giant size ad. They managed to rent out my room the very first evening.” Woody Allen

Fines:   Table ONE for having a guest (Bill Benton) and they got blamed for the song but no one really took credit (it was horrible). There was also a couple cell phones; one was from an ailing cat calling his Dr. The honorable Pastor (but sometimes color blind) proposed a fine to all that didn’t have green on since today was St. Patrick’s day. The motion passed, the reporter claims to have had green on but lost the argument. It was confirmed in the parking lot by several well educated and very intelligent ladies that indeed, his shirt was green. (you can win the battle but lose the war I guess).

Announcements:   The membership of Dick Johnson will be voted on shortly, there was some paper work problems.

Poker Tournament is over and it was a great success. Players were up 66%; Gross up 98% at a bit over $21,000; Overhead down 12% and Net up 72% at $14,835. Pat McKim presented Pat Greenway from the Listen up Foundation with a check for $5,000. She said the money will be used to help low income kids with speech and hearing problems. McKim said he DID throw in the $50 for not making it to the end. Reggie Rivers was one of 5 that split the pot. Dick Mason’s wife made it to the final table but didn’t win.

Doug informed the group of an upcoming golf tournament that the club has been asked to help in exchange for possibly some good fund raising monies and some other goodies. It will be held at the Omni Interlocken Golf Club on June 6th. Doug is putting teams together and this could be very rewarding for the club. Ken Kelley is the Chairman with Doug as Co-Chair. More info to follow.

Will Martinez has King Soopers coupons. The club receives 5% but only 4 people regularly use the service. The card is like a debit card so it’s easy to use.

Mike Magee has set up a tour of Invesco Field April 22nd at 2:00 pm. At a cost of $6 per head (you can bring your body if you so desire). Sign-up sheet passed around.
