On January 14th we had our annual chapter social event at the Rusty Nail in Ringwood. The event was well attended with 63 people coming out. As usual, we enjoyed good food, camaraderie, and handed out our annual chapter awards. Matt Buhlow played some great guitar cover music for us which livened up the atmosphere quite a bit. Some of the notable awards received were Most Valuable Player (MVP) awarded to Mike Land, and the David Carlson Achievement Award which was announced to Marty Papanek. Marty also received a new annual award called the “Oven Mit”. Come out to one of our upcoming chapter gatherings to hear why! Further, our Ray Scholars, Syd Krause, and Andy Klein were recognized. Andy received an aviation headset compliments of Lightspeed. Bill Tobin and Stephanie McClellan did a great job announcing and handing out the awards. Stephanie also made some really cool center pieces for each of the tables. To further compliment the event, we had a picture show projected on the big screen in the dining room that highlighted all of the cool stuff we did as a chapter in the past year. In closing we had a moment of silence in memory of chapter member Claude Sonday. Our new chapter President, Bill Tobin encouraged everyone to get involved to achieve a great upcoming year of chapter activities in 2023.
