October 2004 Meeting
NEW MEMBERSThe NMMM wishes to extend a warm welcome to the following new members: "Sleeping Bear", John, "Oso", Joe, and Joe. A hoarier bunch of greybeards you’ll never meet! John and Joe are true historians/re-enactors of the American pre-Revolutionary and Revolutionary War time periods, respectively. Many moons ago, "Oso" was booshway of the NMMM, and "Sleeping Bear" has risen from the ashes of the LCLR’s to raise the bar amongst his new brothers. Joe T. is new to the Mountain Men. Joe, his wife Mary, and Eloise have rendezvoused Nebraska-style for years and are becoming regulars at all of the NMMM’s gatherings. Finer company you couldn’t ask for! Welcome!
Booshway "Pack Mule" stepped forward at the Wolf Trapper Memorial council fire to present a good and true buckskinner with a name fit for mountain folk. Henceforth, Richard is to be known as “Sleeping Bear” amongst the circle of brothers and sisters. Waugh!
November Turkey ShootOn Sunday November 14, the NMMM will be hosting their annual fall turkey shoot. All of the fun will commence around 10am and wrap up when the last turkey has flown the coop. This is a patched round ball event. All Club members are encouraged to attend in primitive dress, but most importantly, attend! We have 50 members in the Club now, many of whom do live a ways away; but if everyone who possibly could make it tried (and brought a friend), we’d have a great shoot. Sure would like to see you there! Tatonka is going to feed us lunch for a small fee. Shooting fees are $2 per event with one re-entry.
Christmas PartyThis year’s Christmas party will be held on Saturday December 4 at Randy and Sue’s home. The “doings” will commence at 5pm. Sue asks that you call her soon to find out what you need to bring. New officers will be elected at the party, so come prepared with a nomination and a vote. If you need a place to stay for the night, call Sue and she’ll get a hold of someone with a spare bedroom.
Time to RenewOnce again it is approaching the time to renew your membership with the NMMM. A renewal form is included in this newsletter. Dues are $25. If you just recently joined us, the dues you paid will carry through 2005.
