I am preparing for our vacation shortly, but wanted to write a couple notes regarding circuit events for 2018-19
The fall retreat (especially for those who are new) is always the Sunday-Tuesday following Labor Day. This year that puts the retreat on Sunday, September 9 to Tuesday, September 11.
Our typical schedule is that we try to gather Sunday afternoon between 4-6 pm, then go out to dinner in Tahoe or Meyers. The “program” begins formally on Monday morning. We finish no later than noon on Tuesday, and there is always free time on Monday afternoon.
Last year we had Hal Senkbeil & Lucas Woodford join us. It was a great retreat, but cost a little bit more money than usual. This year I think it would be good to do the retreat in-house, and to have someone from outside the circuit come in every 2-3 years.
To help me gather information on this, I have included here a Google Form for you to fill out. Please do so as soon as you are able, so that I can plan accordingly.
If you have problems with this Google form, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get your information the old fashioned way.
Second, our colleague Kent Schaaf has accepted the call to Mt. Olive in Milwaukee, and is leaving us sometime after June 10. He has served as our bi-circuit secretary/treasurer. That means someone else will have the opportunity to serve us in this capacity. It is pretty low-maintenance. Mostly it means keeping track of the monies for the retreat, and helping to prepare a circuit directory every other year or so. It could also mean helping me with these occasional missives and communication. If you are interested and/or willing to help with this, please contact me. Otherwise I will ask someone.
Fall/Spring 2018 Schedule
I have not been able to get the proposed fall/spring schedule up on the web site yet. I will try to get it done before I leave, but if not, I will do it in July. I’ll let you know.
That should do it for us!
Circuits 4 & 19 Pooh Bah
