The San Francisco Giants meet the Washington Nationals on Sunday, July 31, 1:05 pm. It will be SIR Day at AT&T Park. We have only two weeks for signups and payments in order to guarantee the group discount ticket price of $45 per seat.
We are promoting a shotgun event (and a free party) at Eagle Vines on February 1st. What normally happens is everyone signs up, plays 18 holes, then goes home. We never meet any of the other golfers. This Shotgun format will have us all finish at the same time. Lunch–bits-beer or whatever after the match…..below is the information……..
Be a part of Golf history!!!!!!!

The December 2016 edition of the Branch 8 Photo Gallery is posted and available by clicking here, or by going to http://www.sirbr8.com/gallery/
Thanks to the continued work of DeWayne Ruwe, who compiles the pictorial database, and Bill Phelon who photographs the new members (assisted as necessary by members of the Digital Photo Group) we have images of almost all our members available for review. This is particularly useful when you know a name but cannot put a face to it! If your picture is missing please contact Bill Phelon and have him photograph you at a lunch meeting – unless you want to remain anonymous!
Fellow Branch 8 Sirs — Each year the Big Sir is required to write a history of the year’s happenings. I thought all of you might like to read a recap of our 50th year.
Our Branch celebrated its 50th anniversary in March with an extremely enjoyable luncheon that included local city officials, many SIR State officers, Region Directors, Area Governors, Big Sirs from other branches, and of course, our own members. All in all, we had 320 guests in attendance including 275 of our own Branch 8 members. Maybe it was the free wine and the Branch 8 commemorative coffee mug that brought them out?
I am the new Branch 8 Travel Chairman,and looking for a volunteer or volunteers to be Assistant Chairman. I hope to offer several travel opportunities to Branch 8 and other Branches in area 2. Please send me any suggested travel opportunities that you would be interested in looking at and I will get information.
At our next luncheon I will have some flyers on the Travel table, please stop by and take a look. Generally we need to start booking trips well in advance of the departure date. We can offer trips to our Branch and /or join with other Branches.
Let start TRAVELLING!!!
Our Gracious Seniors Were Magnificent
A very rare event occurred today on the Bocce courts which were aided by an error in team assignments. It happened when Ray Nummi age 95 and Clark Morehouse age 92 stood at opposite ends of the court comprising a team. Their opponents, Dick, Martin, Jim and Don, four younger members of SIR branch 8, were outmatched as Ray and Clark with a combined age of 187 won by a large margin.
Congratulations to our over 90 champions.
Our Sept dinner was hosted by Ron and Judy Smith. As usual, it was a delightful evening. The food was superb and wine flowed. You new members need to start another ” Dine In” group. The ladies love it. Contact me for info on getting started. Ron Cassano at email@example.com
