This will be the last Stated meeting before we go dark for the summer. We will have a few practices in August to prepare for our GMOV at Septembers stated, so keep an eye out for any cal-endar updates. In case you missed last Stated, we voted to remove Article Thirteen : Section 2 from our by-laws.

We had a great visit up at Escurial Lodge #7 in Virginia City. Breakfast was fabulous, they had a wonderful presentation by the Job's Daughters, and just good fellowship amongst the Brothers. I want to thank the Brothers who made the trip up the mountain; Randy Subia, Dennis Boyden (our Driver), and Ken Grotte.

I heard that our Golf Tournament went very well and Brother Venters will give us a detail reporting at our stated.
