IFS: THE GRAPES OF WRATH

I know this…a man got to do what he got to do.

Ministers and Rabbi:

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Minister of Photography, IFS will soon indulge in a pleasant afternoon of wine chugging, I mean tasting.  To review:

1) Meet in SB on 11/3/2006, for our typical opening night of revelry and catching up.

2) The Morning of the 4th: Rise early and hit the road to make our 7:30 am reservation at the Turnpike IHOP for our Two Year Anniversary meeting.

3) Meet back at the Mesa house around 9:45 am for the Minibus that will be picking us up at 10:00 am. 

4) Taste wine for the next several hours, until our 4:00 pm dinner at the Hitching Post II.

5) Arrive back in Santa Barbara around 6:30 pm: Trade brings the heat (Jaeger) and we lose our minds.

6) Sunday morning / afternoon: The Mesa house throws a Backyard BBQ (point man for this event – Minister of Athletics).

7) Sunday evening / night / late night / Monday morning:  The Dark Drive Home.

Now before you complain (fuck you), meeting isn’t early, it’s right on time; we do the Pancake breakfast every month, not the Pancake lunch.   And quite frankly, our society has become lazy (myself included), so we’re gonnna do this meeting right.  That means we’re up early and prepared – prepared to swear in, prepared to explain our positions (I’m sure we’ll have at least one guest member), prepared to discuss our beloved society’s future, prepared to clean our plates, and prepared to drink ALL of the appropriated Adolphi.  Remember that our numerous accomplishments – Philadelphia, Vegas, the Website, the Anthem, etc. – started with us sitting around a table, eating flapjacks and drinking Bud. 

As we ring in our Two year Anniversary, we must honor our society by treating it with the respect it deserves.  So we’ll be dressing in Formal Attire: that means suits, ties, nice shoes, the whole deal.  Let’s not waver on this point – we dress up for far less important events (interviews, nice dinners, weddings, etc.), so let’s all look our best.  Also, there will be plenty of opportunities to wear our shirts this weekend, so bring them too.  If the ties are ready by then, we can all wear them – if not, then we’ll just have to wait for Wardrobe’s Spring ’07 line. 

So let’s celebrate the International Flapjack Society’s Anniversary with all of the bravura that I know we’re capable of.  This November 4th, let us remember all we’ve done and let us plan for all we will do.  Comment or email me with questions or concerns. 

Sincerely,

The Minister of Coordination and Rousing

    Since we are all going to be in suits, we should also take some yearbook type pictures of everyone. Then, you know, do something wacky with them.

    That’s fine Trade. Suits would be great, but slacks and a jacket work, or a tie and a shirt…just as long as we all look sharp. Looking forward to your arrival.

    I don’t own a suit, so the best I can do is a shirt and tie for the meeting. Hope that will suffice, sorry for the inconvenience. Also, I can’t wait to get dere.. FLAPJACKS
