Hoo-Doo Hippies
Coordinators Comments
March 2018

Hi fellow Hippies! Thanks for the great turn-out at the March meeting! The poker walk
was won by myself, with an Ace high flush. There was one other hand that was one card
off, so it was a close one! Thanks everyone for participating!

Anyone who wants Spring Opener tickets, AR-15 raffle tickets, or courtesy cards please
contact me and we'll make arrangements to get you some.

April 7th is the Highway clean-up and meeting; Roy and Lila have generously agreed to
provide a pulled pork main dish for the potluck. Thanks Roy and Lila!

Stop by the Abate of N. Idaho booth at the Spokane Bike Show, March 9, 10 and 11th and
say "Hi"!

I also want to thank Dave Cazel, and Duane Justus for making the effort to attend our
meetings and providing updates for us. Much appreciated!

Sharon Preston did a good job handling all the membership applications and doing the
50/50 drawing too…busier than a one-armed paper hanger as they used to say!

Belinda Wright is the Life Flight coordinator and she provided information…..thanks,
Belinda!…..the renewal is due by April 15th. All applications and renewals have to go
through Belinda. You have to be a member of ABATE to get the discounted rate!

See 'ya at the Highway Clean-Up! Watch for forthcoming details!
Tim Closson
