Westy Weekly April 24th, 2015


Happy Friday Everyone!

The weather outside is beautiful and I couldn’t be happier. I might get the car out today! I hope everyone gets a chance to get some sun in and try to forget the horrible cold and weather we had this week. Snow? Really?

The 123.Net Poker event was a huge success! We had over 35 Players and the participants had a lot of fun. I received a lot of compliments from the staff about how professional the Jaycees were and how well the event was run. I would like to personally thank everyone who came out to help and support the event. We even had our newest member, Ray Atwood, on hand to deal for us if needed! Also remember, we can do this type of thing for any company that wants a Vegas night, so feel free to talk to your respective marketing teams!

Swimming with the Fishes was also a huge success! Many thanks to Melody Montgomery for working to put this on for all of us. We had 61 people in attendance! The kids loved it and we loved interacting with the Ray’s! We also took in a rare opportunity at the food court for everyone to get what they wanted all by themselves. Mikey had Taco Bell, Sam had Chinese, and Linda and I had Japanese.

Coming Up!

Party Like a Rock Star social is Saturday night at Strykers. DJ Campbell is working on putting this together and we would love to see you out there!

The R4L Bowling fundraiser planning is underway. Amy Willingham and team have been ironing out all of the details and getting things lined up to make it a success. Right now, the tentative plan is to have fees at $20 in advance for bowling or $25 on site. Includes food, a couple games, and great times! Should you have any further questions, call your Director, Awesome Amy. Date is May 22 at Westland Bowl

May Conference! Its coming fast and Registration is closing soon. The theme is Kentucky Derby, so ladies, those Easter hats have a double purpose. You can also get crafty if you like and make something. Im not sure yet what we are doing. Many of you have registered and are also starting to book your training sessions. For those that haven’t, here is the link to do so. http://goo.gl/forms/I1QPdIUBCEhttp://goo.gl/forms/I1QPdIUBCE. Go and select one training from each session block. I look forward to seeing all of you there. We will be up there two days early for the kids to play in the water park and to visit TC. If you need anything or have any questions, go ahead and call me.
