Weekly Poop 10/4/17

Roost #44 Poop
  • From the PrezThe Council of Raven Roosts has sent a draft statement for consideration for all member Roosts. This is VOLUNTARY for all Roosts to consider. At the October 19th meeting, the membership will vote on posting this statement as the position of Roost #44 or not to post it and take no position. Draft Statement: We are a fan club of of the Baltimore Ravens. We use this organization as a forum and a conduit to reach a variety of people and organizations. Our main purpose is to raise money and give to charities in our communities. We are damn good at what we do and we have a lot of fun doing it. We should not lose track of this objective. We may agree or disagree with the current state of the NFL but our responsibility lies with our charities and the work we do for them.
    At the last Roost meeting on September 14, we reported on a meeting between the House Committee and Steve Pappas, the owner of the Greene Turtle. Roost #44 and Steve agreed that the upstairs of the Greene Turtle is no longer conducive for Roost meetings for a variety of reasons.
    However, Roost #44 is still a strong supporter of the Greene Turtle and we are not cutting our ties to the Greene Turtle. We still continue to strongly support the Greene Turtle, the Raven Rap show and we encourage Roost members to watch the Raven games there. In addition, we encourage all Roost members to take advantage of the 20% discount for food and beverage at the Green Turtle (displayed on the back of your membership card).
    The House Committee and Board will announce the new meeting location at the October 19 Roost meeting after investigating several alternative sites.
    2017- The 20th Anniversary of Roost #44: As mentioned previously, 2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of Roost #44, which began meeting in 1998 under President Buddy Miller. To mark this anniversary, Treasurer Sandy Taras is updating an annual summary of the major activities and trips of the Roost which was last printed in 2004.
    The 20th Anniversary shirts are ready for order!
    T Shirts $6.00; Long Sleeve T Shirts $8.25; Hoodie Zip Up $21.00; Pull Over Hoodie $22.00. Contact Eric for pricing on sizes 2X or larger. Colors Purple, Black and Gray.

Any questions, email me at or call 410-598 -4597. No more orders will be taken after October 19th meeting!

Funny Poop
  • A wife got so mad at her husband she packed his bags and told him to get out. As he walked to the door she yelled, 'I hope you die a long, slow, painful death.'
    He turned around and said, 'Make up your mind; you want me to stay or you want me to go?'

  • Got poop? Let me know! I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday I’ll try to include it. Your input is appreciated.
