You have no problem enjoying the finer things in life.

Ramen noodle month is just another way another way to say “they’re corded.”

You always order the last round – and you’ve earned that right, as you have the fastest time of the day, everyday.

10 Years Ago- January 2004

11th Anniversary Dinner

Date: Saturday, January 31, 2004
Place: North Augusta Country Club
Members Attending: Brian & Donna Bogardus, Karen & Kurt Breitinger, Miller Butler & Gail Shaw-Butler, Tony & Mary Cappucci, Jim & Judy Creer, Margaret & Ray Cullen, Ferris & Leroy Delionbach, Carol & John Haff, Jackie & John Nichols, Burt & Malissia Sasser, Jean & Russ Schwalbert, Anne & Bob Smith, Denny Smith, Cindy & Stacey Timmerman, Becky & Richard Welling, Rudy Wilmoth, Dave & Bobbie Winkler and Anita & Henry Wylds.
Guests Attending: Patti Latezia and Donna Wallace.

We had a great turn out for the anniversary dinner, then again we always do. If there is anything we like to do besides drive Miatas, it is eat a big ol‘ meal and talk about them. Miatas weren‘t the only topic of discussion tonight, as it was less than a week since the area‘s ice storm, so there were plenty of trees down/no power/no Speed Channel horror stories.

Tonight was the official re-emergence debut of the Club‘s 50-50 raffle and Jim Creer sold a passel of tickets. I don’t remember the exact total collected, Rudy was the big winner, but it was more than enough to cover his and Patti’s meal. We used the same tickets to raffle off the center pieces from the tables when the night was through.

Big thanks to Jackie Nicholls (and John too) for throwing this fantastic dinner together for us.
