Glutton Mouse Races is coming up. Saturday February 28, 2009 is the date. Mark your calendar!
About 30 heart Gluttons attended the annual Glutton Super Bowl Shrimp Feast on Super Bowl Sunday. The Club lost $2 on the party.
3–D bespectacled partiers enjoy a few 3–D commercials and previews during the game.

The 5th annual Glutton Trivia Night netted us just about $2,000.
We had 23 teams playing and paying. Thanks to all who helped out at this event.
We’re in the planning stages for an outdoor trivia night with a tentative date of August 29th. Stay tuned.
The Mouse Race meeting originally scheduled for January 28th has been rescheduled for Wednesday, February 4th at 6 pm. This will be shortly before the Board meeting scheduled for 7:04 pm.
Please try to be there.
Pack up the kids and come on over to the Club and watch the Super Bowl commercials. Rumor has it that there will be a game too. Bring a snack or dish and $15 per adult. Kids negotiable.
Festivities get underway at 3:18. Game time: 5:18.
There is still time to get your table at Glutton Trivia Night this Saturday. Doors open at 6:30 pm, with the game starting about 7 pm. Cost is $120 per table of 8. Cash prize for first and second place.

Notes from the Membership meeting of Friday, January 16, 2009:
The all-important January membership meeting is this Friday, January 16th. The meeting gets underway at 7:16 pm.
The January meeting is usually well attended because that’s when people try to get summer reservations. We also elect a new Board of Directors at the January meeting. A card game will most likely break out after the meeting.
All members are encouraged to attend.
Attached is the January issue of the Glutton Gas. This is Kevin McCauley’s first issue. It’s a good start Kevin. If you have any articles, pictures or ideas for the Gas get them to Kevin.
Honorary Glutton Charlie Wells was killed in an auto accident on Saturday, January 3, 2009 near his home in Bonne Terre MO.

The framed in areas are for the kitchen. The island on the left will have a bar area on the left and a work table on the right with a sink, cutting board and storage. The other framed area on the right (along the wall) will be where the gas and charcoal grills will be located. There will be an exhaust hood over the grill area.
More progress is being made on the deck expansion. Much has been done in the last week or so. A crew is planning on working again Sunday (Nov. 23). Be there if you can.
The November Gas is in the mail. It was mailed today (Saturday), so it should be hitting mailboxes Monday or Tuesday. I’ve attached two jpegs of the Gas pages here. Click on them to enlarge them. If you want to print it out, I’d appreciate letting me know how it looks to you. (Just click the comment link below and let me know what you think.)
When Kevin takes over the Gas in January, we may try to deliver it electronically to those who’d prefer it that way. It would save the Club some money.
Let me know what you think.
As you can see, progress is being made on the deck expansion. There is still a lot to do. Try to make it over and help out. The weather has turned chilly. Last weekend we were in shorts and t-shirts. The high was around 50 but there was a steady breeze which made it feel cooler. Click on pictures to enlarge them.
