Dave Perkins organized a Brunch at Crow Canyon Country Club, and for the 5th year was rewarded with a full-house. If you missed it, put it on your calendar for next year!
The food was terrific, and the company even better – plenty of mimosas (or plain champagne if you preferred) kept the conversations stimulating.
Thank you Dave and Jo Anne for organizing a great Sunday Brunch for us lucky Branch 8 members.

Joe D’Angelo current Darts Champion
At our last gathering at Arties Lounge five Branch 8 Sirs competed to reach a score of zero, not minus one or more but exactly zero. Bill Cooke, Al Welch, Jerry Ward and Don Atwater all had numerous opportunities to reach the magical number of 0 first however, it was Joe D’Angelo requiring a two spot to hit it with a well thrown dart.
Friendly game of darts and pool are played the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Arties Lounge on the Treat Blvd side of Countrywood Shopping Center starting at 2 p.m. Therefore, our next gathering is July 9th. No reservation
required, just show up and have a beverage while we have a fun time tossing darts and shooting pool.

Our MRC team, lead by Past Big Sir Stan Johnson, has created a newsletter aimed at attracting the attention of our ladies. Much of the drive comes from Sir Phil Trapp (Activity Chair) who wants to encourage more ladies to participate in, and enjoy, the wide range of activities Branch 8 offers. Thanks to the efforts of many MRC members (concept, content, design, editing, folding, and mailing etc) the newsletter has been mailed to your family address, click here for a copy to download. Please encourage your lady to not just read the newsletter, but to get active with an activity she enjoys. If she asks for a new activity, let Phil know!|
June will be here soon, and we’ve started planning for our next Ladies Day Luncheon which will again be held at the Contra Costa Country Club on Monday, June 8, 2015. Come and enjoy the melodic singing of Pamela Brooks. Click here for full details on the event, the menu, and for sign-up forms.
The Blackhawk Auto Museum has approved our request to use the outside patio for our member’s classic cars. I think we have about 4 guys that were interested in parking and displaying them.
Also that day the Model A Club will have about 15 cars on exhibit on the patio. I would encourage everyone to visit the Blackhawk Auto Museum Website to see photos of the “The Spirit of the Old West” Exhibit that will be available to us with a Docent at 12:00 Noon that day. Please advise me if you are bringing you classic car so I can inform the Museum of the make and model, etc. I know Ed Benson is bringing his 1957 Thunderbird.
