Let’s see, drives a red sports car (check). In his mid-50’s (check). Seen recently growing a ponytail (see adjacent picture – check). Slight paunch in the boiler area (check). Oh my gosh, it’s official!! Your President seems to be in full blown mid-life crisis mode! Who would ‘a thunk it.
With that now out in the open (whew!) we turn to recent and upcoming events at the SOS. A big shout out to the SOS Lady
Tennis Players who helped spruce up the tennis area and the back forty of the SOS Club for the recent tennis clinic which was put on by our tennis pro, George Collier, and which was open to the public. The Board is quite enthused about George’s efforts in reinvigorating the SOS Tennis Program. Please help spread the word about the SOS Tennis Program if you get the opportunity. Thanks again, ladies, for all of your time and effort. It is very much appreciated.
While we are on the topic of clean up, the third annual Love SOS Day has been set and will take place beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, 2015. Our fearless leader, Mark “Hey, I’m the guy with the tractor” Driver, will once again spearhead this effort. Even if you only have a few hours to devote to this effort, that would be great. In addition, any ideas as to how you want to spruce up the SOS Club would also be welcome.
OAA Banquet Czar, Wayne Zipser informs us that the OAA Banquet date is about to be announced. On that date, the
press conference beginning at 5:30 p.m. and dinner beginning at 6:30 p.m. Special thanks to Sam Sam-Sin for corralling exciting names for our guest speakers, which can take us back to the glory days of the OAA event. This event is sure to sell out so don’t procrastinate and get your tickets/tables through Shanale at (209) 578 – 5801 ASAP.
I know we all procrastinate (just ask former SOS Newsletter editor, Phil “Daily Planet” Feebeck, and current Newsletter editor, Clive “Jimmy Olson” Riddle, about how I turn in this Newsletter at the last minute of the last hour of the last day of the month) but if you are planning to attend an event, please sign up as early as possible to help us all out.
With the Masters Golf Tournament right around the corner, it is time to break out the clubs (and erasers for your score card) and sign up for the SOS Golf League. Bringing your favorite foot wedge is optional. The league kickoff party will be Wednesday, April 15, 2015, with play beginning in late April. You can get a signup sheet at the SOS bar or from League
Commissioner Scott “Hammer” Guptill.
Finally, don’t forget to bring the family to the Annual SOS Easter Brunch this Sunday, April 5, 2015, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you haven’t done so already, please make your reservations at the SOS Bar or call the Pro Shop at (209) 578-
Now, has anyone seen my gold chain necklace and Harley?
