That’ll Play!

To those minister and rabbi who were present, well done.  The 4th of July Tahoe weekend was a roaring success.  Although we did have some last minute cancellations and membership was a little skinnier than it should have been, these weekends ultimately make IFS stronger.  The commitment shown by Revelry and Spirits to organize and plan the weekend is much appreciated.  The cabin was great and the company was better.
ihop-free-pancake-day-2009.jpgSome serious business was discussed and it was agreed that the minimum voting requirement needs to be lowered so that decisions can actually be made at such a meeting when very strong active members are present, and weaker, less active members are chronically absent.  A simple majority was suggested as opposed to a 2/3 vote.  Our inability to follow our own rules and still make important decisions was a point of friction and needs to be addressed.  I encourage email communication on these matters to keep things private.

In other news, The Rabbi took home top honors and a brand new ‘Slap Chop’ for his outstanding “Taco Post”.  Well done Rebbi.

OqSM9.jpgAll in all, a wonderful weekend.  The strength of the members present made for great party.  I know I speak for the group when i say every side was sore at the end of it all.  Although many ministers were absent for this great weekend, the excuses need to be respected when appropriate.  Contracting swine flu and studying for the BAR exam are acceptable excuses.  If you are going to bail out on a meeting, there is a proper way to do it.

Exhibit A:

Good Luck on your test AP, make us proud Law Dog!

    I love IFS soo much it hurts…literally. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much. Big thanks to Johnny Rebok for putting this thing together. I thought I’d add some of my own favorite quotes:
    “Lets go threes! Hey Paula – are you spinning tonight? When are you gonna Spin?”
    “I can’t provide you with a big dick, but I can provide you with an average-sized dick.”
    “Hey Fleming, are you gonna play another game of fag ball?” (spoken with long island accent)
    “AWWWWRRRRRAAAAA” (me, getting ice cold water dumped on my head while sitting in the hot tub).
    Love you all.

    “Chaaaaaarlaaay, that really huuurt”
    “Thaaaaat’s gonna play..”
    “Hey Comp, be a real chum and grab me a Mike’s Haaad from the fridge”
    “Oh no, somebody decided to eat spaghetti in the shower again”
