The November meeting was attended by the "usual suspects"- it is this core group that maintains the club interests and in truth is the bonding element to the club. We kind of take it for granted that Russ will show up with some new mixtures and he never fails us. It was good to see Rick(new member) return for this meeting -sorry he can't make it for the December Dinner meeting. This year will truly be "pot luck" as we do not have Ginger taking down assigned dishes-it will add a bit of mystery. Russ said he would try to shake loose some Estate pipes for us to look over and possibly purchase- hopefully this might happen for the December meeting-maybe we could buy ourselves a Xmas present. We missed Walt last night-hope he makes the Dec Dinner meeting. Chip's new haircut adds a soldier of fortune look ......hmmmmm! Larry was quiet for the majority of time when we discussed politics.... a smart man...maybe we should consider him for a write in presidential candidate -he would fit in-when he finished his speech -none of us would know what he said either.
Looking forward to the December get together....let's make it a good end of the year.
