Dave B. for the pics!
For those of you who noticed, yes, it's been a
while since I've had a newsletter out.
With my purchase of a new business (a coffee shop
in Loveland), I'm gone from pretty early in the
morning 'till pretty late at night, and I just
haven't had the time to sit still for a while.
Hopefully, that will change at some point.
Dani Korkegi (a
long time ago), at the beginning of a
discourse on the history of the cellular
telephone, bragged on Timmy and her 10th
Borrett recently bragged that he won a Disney
Cruise, including a day at Disney/Epcot, 4 days on
a cruise, and a trip to Nassau where they stayed
on a private island.
His second brag was that 42 years ago, in Sioux
City, Iowa, he and the lovely Kay were married in
a Lutheran church. He mentioned
several times that it was "pretty hot".
Curiously enough, Ken also bragged that Tad
celebrated his 44th birthday just a few days ago.
Borrett bragged that he swam the Horsetooth 10K.
Out of 70 participants, he came in 6th Place.
WOW!! His dad later bragged on just what a
performance it was . . . seems Tad swam this 10K
in 2 hours, 20 minutes, sprinting
the last 1,000 yards with (as it turned out) with
a kid 14 years younger, beating him at the finish.
Dunnigan bragged on Jim Manning for donating $50
for Heritage Christian Academy. Seems Shawn
is playing 100 holes of golf on Sept. 28th as a
fundraiser. If you'd like to help him with a
contribution, give him a call: 212-4377.
Cassell bragged that he and Colleen recently
celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary!
Blomberg bragged that his in-laws had their 65th
wedding anniversary recently.
Allerheiligen bragged on his15 year old grandson,
Taylor, who recently flew to Oregon to try out for
the Portland Patriots WHL hockey team! He's
too young to draft, but they CAN give him a letter
of intent. Can you imagine!??! 15
Kruse bragged recently that he met
Dick Anderson, of Miami Dolphins fame.
Glaser bragged that, with a son's recent
graduation from UNC, it's "Two down and one to
Bob Kopplin bragged
on a 40th anniversary (with the same woman!)
with a check for the Sertoma Foundation, as
has become tradition.
Bush bragged on Tom Bryan, who participated in the
Leadville 100, a 100 mile bike race.
This would be the same race that Lance Armstrong
won on a nearly flat tire!
An extremely modest man was in the
hospital for a series of tests, the last of
which had left his bodily systems extremely
Upon making several false alarm trips to
the bathroom, he decided the latest episode
was another and stayed put. He suddenly
filled his bed with Diarrhea and was
embarrassed beyond his ability to remain
In a complete loss of composure he
jumped out of bed, gathered up the bed
sheets, and threw them out the hospital
A drunk was walking
by the hospital when the sheets landed on
him. He started yelling, cursing, And
swinging his arms violently trying to get
the unknown things off, and ended up with
the soiled sheets in a tangled pile at his
As the drunk stood there, unsteady on his
feet, staring down at the sheets, a
hospital Security guard, (barely containing
his laughter), and who had watched the whole
incident, walked up And asked, "What the
heck is going on here? "
The drunk, still staring down at the
bed sheets in amazement, replied:
"I think I just beat the
shit out of a ghost ! "
Norm bragged that
just last week (so, this was over a month ago) he went to his 40th high school
class reunion, and said "it was fun". He
tells us that his former classmates could
recognize him, but he didn't know them
Tom Kula has an
opportunity for a luck few:
Last year was the first year we kind of made
it a Sertoma group event-Tim Miller and some
of his buddys ended up being the only ones
to go-and of course we had a blast as well
as great hunting. Randy Willard and Dan
Kaup were suppose to go but had conflicts at
the last minute.
Any way so far Randy Willard and Chris
MacDonald have committed to go plus my son
and I. There is room for 3 more hunters the
week of November13.
When: 11/13-15--there maybe other
weekends available if someone wants to put
together a group for a different
weekend-they can just check with me.
Where: Kula farm located at
Gettysburg, SD (central SD)
Tom (r), with friends, and over 2 dozen
Cost $150/per day per gun-gives
you access for hunting on over 4,000 acres
of prime pheasant habit and lodging-lodging
is a modern mobile home with 5 beds, 2
bathrooms and a full kitchen.
Each hunter is responsible for their food,
transportation, gun and hunting license.
Hunting conditions are absolutely the best
in history this year-the pheasant population
will likely set an all time high, birds are
everywhere. These birds are all
wild-natural/there are no pen raised birds.
The farm is large enough you can hunt new
areas each day.
Ground cover is extremely thick again this
year-that's why we are going a little later
in the season-a good hunting dog is a big
Interested hunters can call Tom at 231-9356.
Abrahamson told us that on Saturday he'll be a
year older than Carl! Unlike Carl, however,
Larry celebrated club TRADITION with cold, HARD,
September 25th . . . PICNIC LUNCH on the patio at
the Lincoln Center!
recently related to us how he met his wife, Sonnie,
when he was 19 years old, and in college. At
20 they were married, and it's now 57 YEARS
been having just enough guys turn out for
the games. John K reports that for the first
game we earned $1,971.19 just from the $67.50 we
receive for the 20 guys that show up. THAT'S
why it's important to be there! We also
received $621.19 in tips, for a grand total of
almost $2,600. Not bad for a fun day!!
Just a reminder . . . for beer sales, wear our
green Sertoma shirts w/black or blue pants.
NO blue jeans.
Jim Manning, after performing flag maintenance
duties with Jim Nutt for many years, has asked
if someone might be interested in the
position. He says it takes "maybe one
hour/week, if that". Give him a call if
this is something YOU could handle, at
Dunnigan had a nice "Thank You" note for those who
helped him participate in this year's Relay for
Life. He said with the club's $500 donation,
he helped raise over $2,000 for cancer research!
Bobbo Kopplin told us that he celebrated his twin
brother's 63rd birthday recently, and had
a check for the Foundation to prove it!
Benton, recently returned from St. Louis, I think
he said, had a brag for Colorado's GREAT weather!
He said while he was there it was a constant 98
degrees with 98 percent humidity. YUCK!
Roger Sample bragged
on his wife, Susie's THIRD hole-in-one this year!
He detailed the courses for us, but I was so
flabbergasted by THREE in one year, I forgot to
listen! WOW! What are the odds???
Lee Cord had a $5
brag for our Board of Directors buying a ($750)
table at this year's Brainiac Bowl on October 3rd.
If you'd like to fill one of those seats, contact
Lee at 215-9658.
The 8-person team for the Brainiac Bowl appears to
be Carl Glaser, Dave Williams, Dick Ziporlin,
Bill Brown, and spouses. This is NOT set in
stone, however, so if YOU'RE interested, call Lee!
Bill Brown had a brag for
fellow member Dave Williams, who had a birthday on
Concurrently, Dave had a check for the Sertoma
Foundation in honor of his birthday.
Greg Anderson has raised quite
the daughter . . . Former Sertoman, Greg visited
the club last Friday, and bragged on his daughter,
Sadie, and her rugby exploits.
HERE to see her latest adventure at Penn
State, complete with video!
Kopplin (astute treasurer that he is!) reported at last week's
meeting that he recently received a check from "an
anonymous donor" for that donor's 63rd birthday.
John K. (anonymous donor extraordinaire)
expounded on this fact by saying he's "a day
younger than Dave Williams."
Burns (R), hands off the trophy to Okey Reese,
Shawn Dunnigan had a brag for Ronny Bush'
athleticism. (But, then again, who
Board has decided that we will keep track of our
man-hours on a monthly basis. There will be
a sheet passed around at a board meeting
once/monthly, and you will be responsible for
recording your hours.
If YOU know of a place where our lunch can be help
beginning next June, please tell someone on the
Board. Seems the Lincoln Center is going to
be remodeling (again!), and we will have about SIX
MONTHS in which we will have to find someplace
else to meet.
The new place must (1) Be large enough to hold all
of us (2) Have kitchen facilities for the Rainbow,
and (3) Not cost and arm AND a leg. Be
