· Drag Queen Comedy Show. I am hosting as a way to raise money for Believe in Tomorrow. I am waiting on some pictures to create a flyer but the information is as follows: Saturday, January 13th from 7-11 at the Pit & Pub. Tickets will cost $25. The bar will be offering happy hour prices and a discounted menu, plus there will be some light hors d’oeuvres included in the ticket cost. I am limited to 100 people and I have an overwhelming response for people wanting tickets. I believe this will sell out fast, so I wanted to give you the information. Once I create the flyer I will forward it to you as well, but wanted you to know that I am beginning to sell the tickets now. Thank you, Maria.
· Mini Golf Tournament: Tentative date and time - Thurs Feb 15, 2018; 7-9pm for golf, food & prizes later at Greene Turtle.
o Where: Golf at 136th St. indoor venue with beer, wine and soda before and during play
o Current status:18 people signed up, need about 32-36 to make it work. This is open to non-members so it is ok to invite a friend(s).
o Format: same as last year: Foursomes of 2 mixed teams of 2 (male/female) - projected cost $25-30pp based on head count.
o Sign up: Please do this at the January Roost meeting - prefer earlier by calling Ron 302-436-4790 or email@example.com so proper planning can be done + a commitment to Old Pro Golf.

· Sam has been in business for 25 years and is finally sick of the stress. He quits his job and buys 50 acres in Alaska as far from humanity as possible. He sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise it's total peace and quiet. After six months or so of almost total isolation, someone knocks on his door. He opens it and there's a big, bearded man standing there.
"Name's Lars...Your neighbor from forty miles away...Having a birthday party Friday...Thought you might like to come. About 5...
"Great," says Sam, "after six months out here I'm ready to meet some local folks. Thank you."
As Lars is leaving, he stops. "Gotta warn you...There's gonna be some drinkin'."
"Not a problem...after 25 years in business, I can drink with the best of em."
Again, as he starts to leave, Lars stops. "More'n'likely gonna be some fightin' too."
Sam says, "Well, I get along with people. I'll be there. Thanks again."
Once again Lars turns from the door. "I've seen some wild sex at these parties, too."
"Now that's really not a problem," says Sam. "I've been all alone for six months! I'll definitely be there. By the way, what should I bring?"
Lars stops in the door again and says, "Whatever you want, just gonna be the two of us".
