Thanks for understanding.

Message from the Chairman

Last weekend was definitely one for the history books. What a great way to celebrate our 40th Anniversary. I heard nothing but positive things from our members and the rest of the community that witnessed our celebration. Every year around this time after our big weekends, we have guests who become inspired to become members and join us. We should welcome new brothers, as they fill out their membership forms and determine sponsors.

What I was the most excited about is the amount of folks that attended our various social events during the weekend. I think we need to look anew at hosting more social outings for our club outside of the big weekends — hopefully you do as well. For the Spring months, there’s a great party at the end of March that I hope you can all attend. As well the following weekend is our first Beer Bust of the year at the SF Eagle on April 5th.

See you all soon.
