A Piece of Glutton History

John ‘Nately’ Chamberlain sends along this piece of treasure with this note:

While downsizing an old box I found the Glutton card that I created in a typography class at JSchool in Columbia. I believe that was the first use of the “A friend and a beer are always near” motto. The class professor asked what the ESS stood for and I had to tell him. I think it affected my grade.

Glutton Christmas Bonfire Gathering Dec 19

Join your Glutton brothers and sisters at the club on Saturday, December 19th for the ever-changing Glutton Christmas Bonfire Gathering. We’ll start around 2 or 3 pm… or whenever you get there and go for as long as you last.

This will be a BYOB and we ask that you please bring an appetizer or snack to share. We’re NOT going to do a gift exchange this year.

Bowling at Corner Bar Cancelled!

After surveying the board and some members and due to the current pandemic and the Board has decided to cancel the Bowling at the Corner Bar event scheduled for Thanksgiving Friday, November 27th.

We’re still on for Bowling at the Corner Bar in St. Charles on Thanksgiving Friday, November 27, from 7 to 11 pm. Cost: about $8 per person. Bring a snack to share and you must buy drinks at the bar upstairs. 

GMVB 2020 is CANCELED!

Due to the COVID-19 situation and St. Louis County restrictions, we are canceling Glutton Mud Volleyball 2020 scheduled for Saturday, August 1st.

We will initiate refunds today to those teams that have registered already. Since we’re using new software this year we’re not exactly sure how long that process takes, but it will be started today.  If for some reason we are not able to refund directly to the credit or debit card you paid with, we will contact you for your address and will mail you a check ASAP.

We’re sorry to have to do this but with rising infection rates and regulations from St. Louis County it.  We had hoped that with loosening restrictions during the reopening process that we would have been able to hold GMVB safely.

PIGNIC & June Events Canceled

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the 50th Annual Glutton Memorial Day Pignic has been canceled. The board of directors also canceled all reservations and events scheduled in June.

We’re still hoping that we can have GMVB on August 1. We’ll have a better idea of whether that might happen at or shortly after the board meeting on June 2.

New Deck Progress

A small but dedicated crew has been busy building the foundation and guts of the deck reconstruction in the last few weeks. The two large white pipes are for accessing the pool lights. LED lights will be attached to long pieces of conduit that will go into the pipes all the way to the pool. They can be replaced fairly easily if a light bulb goes out. The pool filter will be located on the concrete slab right next to the flag pole. Click image to enlarge.
