Bowling Fun Day

    An amazing group of hearty souls braved snow and rain on April 7th to meet in Ellensburg at the Rodeo Bowl for the 5th annual Bowling Fundraiser. There were five teams registered this year, but only four were able to come. (Vern, Judy, and Mary Ann Herrst had out of state company and had to miss this year.) All together 19 bowlers competed as we played one game of regular bowling and one game of nine pin no tap. Scores were determined while we took a break for lunch and then played a game of Scotch Doubles. The high scoring team (without handicap) was the Spokane Guys and a Gal. Team members are Phil Green, Dick Weigel, John Chamberlain, Bill Weigel, and Bonnie Rail. High scorer (without handicap) was John Chamberlain, and Rebecca Fleishman was the high scorer (with handicap). The Lewis Ladies of Faith team took top place (with handicap). Members on this team are Karen Karnes, Rebecca Fleishman, and Lynn Tebbutt. This year they brought a friend, Lindsey. Other teams competing were: WGM’s Gals with team members Gerry Mosler, Jill Okicich, Janna Hagerty, and Jamie Mosler, and Alley Oops with team members Sharon Singleton, Ray Berrian, and Marjorie Bamford. Last minute entries were Billie Abers, JoDee DeRosier (Grand Marshal), Scott, and Lindsey. They were each assigned to one of the other teams.
        Several Grand Officers stopped by during the day to add encouragement and share lots of laughter. WGP Bob and escort Nancy; AGP Rodger and escort Helen; GC Mary Ann; and Grand Martha, Jean Ballard. Thanks to everyone who came to bowl and to those who came to support us. Not only was money added to the Grand Chapter funds, but those who attended had a fun time. Plans for next year are underway for a bigger and better tournament!
     Thanks to PGP Dennis Okicich for taking pictures of this event. Watch for them soon on the blog.

New Grand Representative of Iowa

Well I did it.  I gave Nancy Huntley of Poulsbo Chapter #235 the Grand Representative commission to the great state of Iowa tonight!

My little skit was comprised of Nancy, Jr. P.P, Bob and Virginia and myself.  The Marshal handed out words for a song about fun days to the tune of School Days to everyone, except for the four of us and we were standing in front of the East.  The sheet I gave to the four of us had words starting out with the same tune and then it got all mixed up with one about fun days, one about the light the night walk and Nancy’s with some info on Iowa.  Once everyone was really confused, I apologized and stated I had been working on several projects this week and apparently got everything all mixed up.  So I got the information I had taken along and gave a sheet of info on Fun Days to Bob to look over and comment and one on Light the Night Walk to Ginny to look over and comment and then I gave Nancy the folder on the Grand Rep commission and when she opened it and started to read it, I then introduced her as the new G.R. to Iowa.  She was sooo excited as well as everyone there.  Of course, everyone told me later they knew it was going to be her.  How they know is beyond me!!!  

Nancy was thrilled that the commission is from Iowa as she has OES friends and other friends in Iowa.  She said when she goes to their Grand Chapter; she will have to go for more than the 3 days, more like 3 weeks! 

I had a great time!  Even got to sit in the East!!
