If we can get four players together, see Joe Collie for details. Chet Cilley said he'll play if 3 others will join him.

Got Shirts?
Roger Landry reminds the club that if you haven't picked up your shirt yet or you still need to pay him, please do so as soon as possible.

Boys and Girls Club Update
Dianne Zawacki says that the Boys and Girls Club has opted to have the Teen Center become a sanctioned B&G Club on their own, instead of as part of a regional group. This will mean that Dianne will have to have a board of directors. If interested, see Dianne Zawacki. Next week, Joe Collie will distribute Back-A-Kid packets on behalf of the Teen Center.

Guest Speaker
Roger Landry introduced us to Dick Metz and Chrissy Metz. Dick showed us a DVD of all his collectibles that he had collected and restored over the years. Tom, his video tech, ran the production. Dick said a lot of his collectibles have been obtained through barter and through people just giving him things to restore. He says his collection of cars goes on the road and raises money at collector shows for a Children's Hospital in New York and Community Health & Hospice's Young Family program, among others. He told the club about the upcoming Private Collector's Show coming up in May.

Date: Friday, May 12, 2006
Time: 7pm-11pm
