Update


Up in Heaven, Tommy Quinn, Dick Zawacki, George Dunn, Matt Cochrane and Dick Glena were smiling down on Hawkeye tonight. There were 53 tickets for the knife giveaway tonight, which meant somewhere between 27 and 53 Members shot a bow at the Club tonight! Best estimate would be around 30 Members shot at least one arrow! The Winner of the Case knife was Ken Bittner. Kenny said as soon as he got home it was going in his turkey hunting vest. Hopefully Ken will send a picture of it in use for the Newsletter.
