Sept 6th POTLUCK

Hope you all had a great labor day weekend!
The following is the notice for upcoming monthly potluck for the Northwest Bears:
WHAT: Monthly Club Potluck
WHEN: September 6th
WHERE: The Cuff Complex
TIME: 6 PM opening set up; 6:30 pm buffet start
BRING: One dish either main course, appetizer, salad, or dessert to feed min 12 each.  And enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie or club members and friends for couple hours, then enjoy cocktails or favorite beverage upstairs during the bear beer bust social discounted drinks avail for those attending both functions.
EARLY WARNINGThe next scheduled general membership meeting will be held during the Oct Potluck (Oct 4th) it happens to be the anniversary month of the club, this will be a critical meeting for all members in the area to attend, as a club we have not held a sanctioned membership meeting for some time due to numbers attending.  This meeting will be very important for everyone affiliated with club to attend, the current board is ready to end their tenure and much information and support is required for the good of the club's future. 
This is not a tactic it is real business for the good of the club as it current exists, as president I will be sending thru yahoo group mail and the Facebook group site a state of the club letter for all members to review and hopefully take to heart, and once again mark their calendars to attend.
Thank you hope to see you soon,
Steve Dearing
NWBears Presdient

Kamp Kodiak 2014 Thank You!

Kamp Kodiak 2014 "the Spirit of the Bear" is completed!

Thanks to all the men that participated and those that supported the event on staff, we had 31 campers, all sites were occupied, and had some great food, fellowship and comraderie in the woods. About 1/3 were new members camping at Kodiak for the first time, we had men from Texas, Idaho, Canada, and all points around Puget Sound. The weather was challenging with three days rain after 10 weeks of 80's dry, but we all sur... vived and stayed positive even if slightly moist. People kept games at sites inclusive and camp fires burning.

The out of camp activiites were hits and kept everyone enthusiastic, thank you to the orgainzers of those activities.

Big thanks to: Scott/Kyle for the firewood donation we all apreciated it and it kept "the spirit fo the bear" burning; John and Jack for the shower detail every morning keeping us all fresh, and Walt for preparing morning coffee and the continental breakfast to put smiles on faces in the early morning. And everyone pitching in when needed to help get things set up and activities going.
