Tuesday - July 30, 2013

At our Tuesday morning meeting this week, our youngest member, Clinton
Kissinger (# 16) won the Tail Twister's pot on the first drawing - getting
up early during summer vacation DID pay off today!
Attendance was 18 members and [in addition to the speaker] one visitor, Mike
Palumbo, a guest of President Robert Bahn.
(NOTE: Three members forgot to sign in on the attendance roster located near
the door today.  Since this list is used to determine our food cost payments
to the restaurant, in addition to going into our club records, the Tail
Twisters are advised by this note that forgetful members who neglect to sign
in at future meetings would be excellent targets for fines!)
1.    Our Senior Lion Jim Mashburn (who got a 61 years 100% attendance pin

2.    Lion Bill Dickens received a special Lions International 25 years 100%

July Program Committee Chair Charles Hartwig introduced Rich Zvosec, the new
Associate Athletics Director for Administration at ASU, also known as Coach
Z.  Coach Z, who has had a stellar career as a basketball coach and TV
sports commentator, went over current and future ASU athletic activities,
displaying an amazing knowledge of past and present ASU athletes, discussed
the mechanics and issues of game scheduling, and asked members if anyone was
interested in taking part in a new mentoring program for ASU athletes, to
give them some idea of what is involved in setting up a business, since most
of them will not be going to the professional level -- and even if they do,
they need some idea of what to do after their playing days are over.  Anyone
interested in the mentoring program could contact him at
