Brad Burns had a brag (and a check!) for 68 years
TO US! ON MARCH 15, 1969, OUR
CLUB WAS FORMED!!
esteemed (huh?) Prez-to-Be, Rob Allerheiligen,
with a $5 brag, read a small novel to us while
telling us of an 11 day "thing" going on in
Ottawa, Canada. Seems the " World
Championship of PeeWee Hockey" was taking place
as he spoke, and his oldest grandson was
playing in it. This kid, apparently, is as
Sadie Anderson is in soccer! Rob
went on to tell us how he is ranked the 47th
player in his position,
out of 500!
Smith had a $5 brag told us how his youngest son,
Ryan, recently graduated from the UNLV Special
Golf Management Program last May. This week
Steve learned that he's been hired as an
assistant Pro at a Country Club in Flagstaff.
Steve tells us that this 36-hole course is ranked
55th (by Golf Digest) in the country, beating out
many other prestigious courses. Seems his
son is currently in town as well, and available
(Mr. Sertoma) Burns told us of a meeting recently
with the Northern Business group who are paying to
have flags displayed on North College. Brad
told them how the flags were "not a fund raiser
for us . . . that it's been more of a black hole".
After this week, they are willing to do this in
partnership with us after this week . . . .
they'll put up flags on one side of the route, and
we'll do the other.
North College, Brad tells us, will have expanded
sidewalks on both sides, so our new flag brackets
will not be installed on the poles until after the
construction is finished. Sounds like a good
solution to a touchy problem . . . Good work
Rolston had a measly $1 brag for Ron Young and the
excellent job he did last week with the
Valentine's Day program, which got a large round
of applause. Amen!
to be outdone, Tim
Miller had a $6 brag ~ seems Timmy was
reticent last week in relating just exactly
what it was little Dani wanted for V Day,
when asked (publicly) by Ron. Dani
(we're told) leaned over and said she wanted a
new 30 caliber piece!
Have I mentioned that you should NEVER get
Dani mad at you!??!
Jim Manning had a brag involving an 8 - 10
hour writing of his personal history for an
thing. When he mentioned this to Bev, she
asked if she could "use that for his obituary"??
Jimmy finished bragging, I was so impressed, I
I knew someone whose autobiography TOOK 8 - 10 hours to write.
I related how I
wrote MY autobiography recently,
and it too 8 - 10 MINUTES!
bragged that his grandson's team won the
above-mentioned Pee-Wee Hockey tournament!
Kind of. Seems that the team they beat in
the first round kept on going, until they won the
tournament outright. Since Blake's team beat
them right up front, I would say that makes
THEM the winners, right!??! As an
aside, all players were ranked throughout the
tournament. Blake ended up ranked 67th out
absentia, Zach Wilson was recognized as a "Fort
Collins Hero" for recently recognizing a telephone
scam and blowing the whistle on it. (How
about that, Zach!??!) Be prepared to
continued bragging with an invitation to US to
attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the
Veterans Plaza on Monday morning, the 28th.
Far west end of Horsetooth, Spring Canyon Park.
Veterans Plaza Ground Breaking -
Fort Collins Coloradoan
"With a tear in his
eye, retired U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Rob
Allerheiligen watched Fort Collins city
officials and local veterans break ground on
the Northern Colorado Veterans Plaza at
Spring Canyon Park on Monday morning."
CLICK HERE to see the article in the
“It’s a tribute to
people who don’t always get a tribute,” said
Allerheiligen, a Vietnam veteran and
international marketing professor at
Colorado State University. “It’s a real
physical honor to all of us, something we
can share with the whole community.”
Young had a brag for his grandson . . . . he
graduated a while back with a degree in Mechanical
Engineering from CSU. At the time, he was a
team leader for a class project that took top
honors that year, making a robotic arm.
Since then, he has continued to refine the arm,
which was sold two of them to a company in Wales,
currently being used to clean out vats full of
radioactive waste.! He is over there now,
helping set them up so they'll work.
Glaser bragged on Larry Abrahamson's Letter to the
Editor in a recent Doloradoan. Larry waxed
eloquent about how early education prevents
Click HERE to see his
Woody told us that
earlier this week he had a birthday! Last
year on his birthday, he decreed that it would be
"Be Good to Woody" year. He tells us that
"most of us forgot that". However, he
recognized Tom Bryan as having remembered!
Woody went on to tell us how much he really
appreciates us as a club ~ that it's been "a real
joy" to him for all the years he's been in it,
between the camaraderie and associations, etc.
He told us how he does not think he contributes
much to the club these days, so he had a check for
The Foundation reflecting his age AND the number
of years he's been with the club! (I SAW the
check, and it ain't chicken feed!!)
Ronn Frank related a
"right kidney removal" five weeks ago, Friday.
(Someone commented that
it was good that it wasn't the wrong one!)
us when the docs took the kidney, they were
confident they also took ALL the cancer!)
Phwew! That's good news!!!
Allerheiligen had a brag for his tour company,
Tours, which has southeast Asia tours.
Apparently, this is for real! (I thought he
was pushin' our legs when he first related his
association a few weeks back) He had glossy
brochures for all (Merry Christmas!).
Rob bragged, both he and Ron Lautzenheiser were
their work on
The Veterans Plaza (see story
Rob then told us how names were being accepted for
addition to the memorial. Talk to him for
details if you, or any other other veteran you
know, would like to be added! A nominating
form and copy of your DD14 is all that's needed.
Benedict had a brag (and a check!) celebrating his 31st
birthday on February 12th!
Knezovich told us that CSU recently announced a
SIX GAME home football schedule for next season,
with our first home game (AND AG Day) against UNC
on September 10. We'll also be playing WY on
(gulp!) December 3!
Hunt bragged recently that "One
of the 2011 inductees into the Wyoming Athletics
Hall of Fame will be the 1986-87 Sweet 16 men's
basketball team (on which his son Tim,
played). They took the Western Regional by
beating fifth-seeded Virginia, then UCLA and
Reggie Miller and lost to
National runner-up UNLV. (just for the
record, Tim was offered a walk-on at CSU!)
Frank Johnson bragged
a check for $150!!) on
45 YEARS of marriage with his wife, Jody!
(I'm sure it just seems that long, Frank!)
Someone had a brag (and another check!) for 33
years of marriage. Forgot who it was,
On a sadder
note, Ed Hanson, a member since 1969,
Ed has lived in Red Feather for a while, and
has been having a hard time making it to
meetings, so it's understandable.
Anytime someone who has been with us for 41
years leaves though, it's gotta' be sad.
A lot of history there!
Come back and visit sometime, Ed!
Ziporlin bragged that he has an 80th BIRTHDAY
If you recognize Marilyn Monroe and Clark
Gable from "The Misfits", you might
want to look at some other classic pics.
Okey Reese (L),
receives new membership packet from our
Membership V.P., Josh Benedict
recognized a new member recently, Okey Reese.
Since Okey just comes once a quarter,
we've gotta' be quick to catch him!
our most recent Board meeting, we learned that
Steve Lyttle and Brad Florin have both quit.
Steve explained that between his bank no longer
paying, and recently imposed time constraints,
it just wasn't working anymore. (Since
Steve was the SOW, we will decide how to come up
with a new one, soon!)

the January 2011 Board

information for the calendar, please send it
to me. Such as our Golf Tournament will
be on May 20th at Mariana Butte. Or that
the Installation Banquet will be on July 24th

15th or August 19th. thx! M
