Following our January Indoor Match
Join us at MCL Restaurant on Wabash Avenue in Springfield for the
2012 Awards & Annual Banquet at 12:30 p.m.
Sunday January 22, 2012
Everyone is welcome, NOT just club members!! Each person takes care of purchasing his/her own lunch from the buffet line. The club will provide beverages [coffee, tea, and soft drinks] and dessert. It’s fun a plenty!
Play the White Elephant Game at the Annual Banquet
We place all gifts on the table, then we count how many are participating.
Each participant draws a number out of the hat and that becomes the order in which they choose the tempting gifts. The person with #1 will choose the first gift and so on down the line. Then the trading begins!
Stages Posted Ahead of Match
We’ll continue to post stages on this web site well ahead [5-7 days] of the upcoming cowboy matches. If any of you have a particular favorite scenario or suggestion, please contact the Match Director or Webmaster from the Contact Us page.
Stages are posted for the January match on the Scores & Stages page. Last years’ scores are archived. You can reach them from a link on that same page.
If you’re interested in getting more involved with the Long Nine Cowboys [especially if you live near the Springfield area], great opportunities abound in becoming a Board Member or helping out at matches or setting up before matches.
Club decisions are made by the board and matches are run by board members. There are openings to fill for 2012. Let one of the club organizers know your interest before the Annual Meeting [see Contact Us page for a list of officers and organizers]
Illinois SASS State Championship
Once again, our own Boben Weev and Miss Weev are two of the major organizers of the event.
$50 Reward Offered
Don Jorge lost his “screw-knife” in October, sometime between the cowboy match and the wild bunch match [4th and 5th weekends in October]. It has a light bone and metal handle and a Damascus-like blade. He’s offering a $50 reward for its safe return.
