We had our Stated Meeting October 10th, there was 42 Nobles signed in for the meeting. A good meal was served by cooking unit. We handed out service awards to 9 Nobles present. There were 11 Nobles that could not attend that were due awards. We will make arrangements to get their pins to them. Thanks to all for their many years of service. Our next stated meeting will be November 14th.
Because of scheduling issues we had to cancel our upcoming Ceremonial on October 14th. We will reschedule this again in the Spring of 2024. We brought in a new member last meeting, that gave us 7 new nobles for the year. Good Job guys !! The Golf Unit had their Christmas Party at WinStar Resort and Casino. A good time was had by all that attended. The name of the resort was not changed so I am guessing no one WON BIG... Small Christmas again girls ---- Sorry.
We are having a Taco Dinner tonight at the Provost Guard building on the Shrine Land. There are several items to be drawn for after sold with proceeds going to the "Clean the Tank Fund". Let me also say that all the funds to do this has been raised by Jerry Sloan and a few other Provost Guard members. There is no Temple funds used in this project. Good luck down the final stretch guys. The Provost Guard attended the Clay County Pioneer Reunion Parade and have plans to attend the Veterans Day Parade also. Staying busy!!
Looks like we are having a successful Rib Cook Nov. 4th. All ribs we plan to cook are sold. If you haven't paid please do so. We have had one Noble announce his intention to run for O.G. If anyone is interested in running for the line please announce by the next Stated Meeting. Elections will be in December Stated Meeting. You will also need someone to present your qualifications and desire to hold office. If you have any questions please stop any Divan member and ask. You will get an answer or we will get you one.
Last item, the Temple Happy Hour will be November 16th in our Oasis. Starts at 5pm and lasts until we leave. Come out and enjoy our new Oasis.

We had our Stated Meeting last night with a very good meal served by the Cooking Unit, free I might add. It was good to see everyone after being dark so long. A lot was covered but the most exciting part is we had 52 Nobles sign in attendance. Haven't seen those numbers in a Stated Meeting in quite some time.
Let me start with the Steak Cook we had Sept 2nd at the land on Hatton Rd. There was 27 steak cookers in competition. This was the smallest turnout we have had at this event. Several reasons were given to us when asked. Economy, gas pricing, Electra dropping out, and finally simply too HOT. We had just enough Nobles to put this on with no issues. We will really take a hard look at this event before committing to 2024. It was the first year we lost money (steaks up 50 also). More on this later.
Next the Circus, we had a very small amount of people show up to watch the show. The Temple had less than 5 Nobles in the stands and didn't have enough Shriners to cover the sale of color books. Brian Gaylor got the Burkburnett FFA students to help as a community service. Thanks to them we had enough people to cover the stands. Also we had only 87 Noble tickets sold, 69 of them were All Stars. This and color book sales are our only income to the Temple. Guy's this won't work, that is 196 Nobles that didn't buy tickets. Enough said I!!
We have a Ceremonial upcoming October 14th for our new members. We need some help putting this on. Please contact the office or our Potentate. We also are asking for the nobility to attend. It's scheduled for 2PM, we will have snacks available after and the bar will be open after as well. Ladies are welcome to attend also.
We will not be cooking Turkeys this year, we will be cooking Terry Martin ribs. $25 per slab, same as last year. 140 slabs will be available for sale. Call Cathy at the office to secure your ribs.
Keep in mind we need to think about an O.G. for next year. If you are thinking about running simply contact any Divan member and we can explain the Timeline to announce and answer any questions you may have. Thanks
Our next Stated Meeting is October 9th at 7:30, dinner at 6:30. This will be Ladies Night and presentation of awards. Watch for a calling post for additional information.
Happy Hour at the Oasis will be Sept 21st and October 19th. Please come out and enjoy our new Oasis.
PP Calvin Carlton Recorder
Well folks it has been a very long very hot summer but it's time to get back together and make some things happen. By the time this comes out we will have had our Steak Cook-Off and the Shrine Circus.
Let me talk about the Steak Cook-Off. This is a special event that does not take much manpower from Nobility. It's not a huge money-maker but has the possibility of growing within the competitive steak cooking community. Come if you can come; Saturday the 2nd of September between 9 and 10am.
Now the Circus, as last year it will be at the Mounted Patrol Arena on 369. It's a one day event but we must have more people helping with the selling of Color Books. Last year we simply didn't have enough Nobles to cover the stands as needed. So ... here is the ask, come help with the sale of the Color Books - your Temple needs you. September 4th - 5:30pm - at Mounted Patrol. One last item on the Circus. The only way Maskat makes ANY money on the Circus is sale of Color Books and Noble ticket sales. As of today, sales on Noble tickets are 40 less than last year. Please if you haven't purchased your Noble tickets, call Cathy at 940-766-4511 and do so. These events will help keep the doors open and
dues as low as possible.
We are having our Shrimp Boil this Saturday the 19th at the Temple. Doors open at 2pm and will be there until 5pm. This is NOT a fundraiser. It is totally paid for by our Potentate Mike Knox. Open/Free Bar and free shrimp. Check out the expansion of the Oasis with a different twist. I think you will like the changes!
I am missing all you guys and look forward to the next Unit Council meeting Wednesday, September 6th, 6:30pm in the Oasis and our Stated Meeting Tuesday, September 12th. Dinner at 6:30pm, meeting at 7:30pm.
Not too early to start thinking about officers for next year.
PP Calvin Carlton Recorder
Let me start with saying "ThankYou" for all the calls, cards, food, and prayers during my Mother's illness and passing. I know everyone goes through these times with family members but it really was comforting to know that there was a special group offering that level of support. I just hope I have been there for each of you in the way all have been for me. One more big "THANK YOU" and I will move on.
We did have the Oil Bowl since we last met. It was again a success. Weather was an issue during the game with a rather lengthy delay but the game was finished. If it's not 110 degrees it's raining. That's the one thing we can't control. I'm sure Greg will have some good numbers for us to review during our next meeting.
Several Nobles attended Imperial July 2-6 at Charlotte, NC. C/R Bill Hammack was our voting delegate. He will report on some key items that was on the floor and outcome of each. I will drop this, $20 per capita vote did pass with some drama!! Bill will explain.
There was a 238th Birthday Party Saturday 15th at Shrine land in honor of Jerry and Bev Sloan and Joe Kirk. Good time was had by all and great food as usual. I believe the age breakdown was Jerry (50), Bev (49), and Joe (139). Joe you do look good for your age!! Happy Birthday again.
We had the carpet cleaned at the Temple. Thanks to all the folks that helped move all the "STUFF" so that could be completed.
Finishing touches are being done to the Oasis. If you haven't seen it -- it will wake you up. If you like the carpet, I picked it out. If you don't your Potentate picked it out alone . . .
One last thing, we have a Potentate Party August 19th at the Temple, 2pm. It's a Shrimp Boil with all the goodies and an OPEN BAR. This is in lieu of a Potentate's Trip. Come out and help spend some of the Potentate's money.
Our next stated meeting will be September 12th, 2023. Dinner at 6:30 with meeting stating at 7:30. Hope so see ya there.
PP Calvin Carlton, Recorder
Well, here we go. Update on the Oais, carpet is to be here in the next week and hope to have it installed ASAP.
As discussed in the last stated meeting, we have interest in selling up to 2 acres of the land to Faith Lodge for building a new facility to the south of our parking lot. This is early stages and talks have just started. Stay tuned.
TSA is just around the corner and will be over before we get together again. Will report on results later.
After we return from TSA the Oil Bowl weeks starts. Agenda will be sent out from the Office. Football and basketball games will be on June 17th. We are back at Memorial Stadium forFootball again. Please purchase your Noble tickets from Cathy.
Also upcoming is our Maskat Crawfish Boil on May 20th, 2-5pm, $15 per person at the Temple. Hope we have as much fun as we did last year. Moving to recent special events, our Maskat Golf Tournament was again a great success, 22-24 teams played and everyone received a prize or door prize. We will end up making between $8,000-$8,500 after expenses. Need to send out a big "THANK YOU" to all the volunteers, sponsors, and most of all, Playrs.
The Provost Guard has had several fundraisers for the development of the tank on Hatton Road land. First, the Tex-Mex dinneron April15th then the High Tea April 29th. Both were very successful and money makers. Per Jerry Sloan, the funding is over half way complete with no Maskat funding! Good work and Good Luck guys. The Provost Guard also had their Fun Shooot April 22nd. It was well attended with a lot of visiting Temples participating. The Provost Guard has been busy.
On a somber note, I want to say one last good bye to PP Mark Terry. Thank you for your service to our Temple and the cause. You will be missed. Also Imperial Potentate Bill Bailey passed away May 7th.
We again had 44 Nobles attending our last Stated Meeting. June will be the last before going dark.
The Temple will be closed Monday, May 29th, to observe Memorial Day.
PP Calvin Carlton, Recorder
We are well into the Spring season. We have had several successful special events since our last Wildcat.
First we had a good showing at the Unit Council Meeting and was able to address several issues before presenting to Nobility. We also had 45 Nobles at the Stated Meeting last month. The Cooking Unit paid for and served a good meal (free) before the meeting. It's really good to see the Nobility coming around again, and we had another new member
come in on top of that. All good news.
The Easter Egg Hunt was a very well attended event. The Clowns did a great job with the children. The Nobility really stepped up and helped move tables/chairs/trash cans. Joey brought his big cooker out and we had the ladies serving. Lots of full baskets leaving with smiles on those kids faces. We did good guys. Thanks a bunch.
Now for upcoming events. The Provost Guard will have a Fun Shoot Saturday 22nd. This is an Open Shoot for Shriners
and non-Shriners. This will be in the book by the time you read this. Planning has been good and have no reason to expect anything but a great event. Update later.
I want to speak of the efforts to raise money to clean the tank at the Hatton Road land. There was a Tex-Mex Dinner at the Provost Guard building last Saturday 15th of April. It could not have been any better. The food was great and was attended by 95 people purchasing tickets. Great time and great food!! ALSO the High Tea is 29th of April. Tickets are $30 each. This is geared toward the ladies and very close to selling out. Proceeds going to clean tank at the land. Again more after event.
Our Unit Council/Divan meeting is scheduled for May 3rd, 6:30 in the Oasis. Please Join us for a small but filling meal provided by our Potentate. The Stated Meeting will be May 9th. I hope we can top the 50 Nobles attendance mark. We have 2 more Stated Meetings before we go dark. Wow, going fast.
We have our largest special event coming May 5th, the Shrine Temple Golf Tournament at River Creek Golf Course. 1 pm shotgun start with the 4-person scramble format. Ed Hall and Gordy Antill have collected a ton of prizes. Grab a non-Shriner and call Cathy to put a team in. This is one of the fun ones so don't miss it. More later on results.
The last special event in May is our Crawfish Boil on the 20th, 2-5pm at the Temple. $15 per person, all you can eat. This was well attended last year. If you missed it, don't do that again. There are several people who can show you how to peel and eat if needed. Again, one of my favorites. Greg and Joey will man the cookers with help from several other Nobles. Make plans to attend this one.
TSA is upcoming June 8-10 in Fort Worth. Cathy has all the information and how to sign up. We really would like to see a good attendance. It won't get any closer until we host it again.
As you see there is a lot going on. Come out to your Temple for fun and fellowship! Thanks.
Calvin Carlton, PP Recorder
It is the season and we have started filling up our Calendar every month. With the Potentate's Ball and Divan Mid-Winter behind us, we are looking toward several Shrine activities and Fundraisers. I feel we just finished one of the most fun OG Trips that I have ever attended. We secured the bus for the trip and it was good to be together on the trip to Shreveport and back. We had an OG and a half walking, and we kept them busy. Golf was fun and we had one of the most informative Hospital tour in a long time. Of course we gathered for Chicken Wings after the tour that lasted several hours. We had about fifteen nobles attend this lunch. Good times were had by all. We plan on securing the Bus again next year and are hoping to get thirty plus people on the bus. Let's start planting the seed now!
Note - We have Happy Hour at the Temple every third Thursday, every month. Join us for some snacks and fun
for a while.
The Easter Egg Hunt is April 8th at the Shrine Land on Hatton Road. This is open to all Shriners and guests.
Bring the family out for Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, and chips. Good time to showcase the Shrine at a fun event.
Golf Unit upcoming events - Golf Mid-Winter is April 19-21 in Fredericksburg, Texas, followed by the Shrine Golf
Tournament May 5th at River Creek. We need help selling additional hole sponsors--see Ed Hall or Gordy Antill.
The Cooking Unit will sponsor a Crawfish Boil May 20th, 2-5pm, $15 per person. Good event to bring non-Shriner
out and even dip into several Blue Lodges for people to invite. This is fun and very popular; don't miss this one.
Call Greg or any Cooking Unit member with questions.
TSA cost has increased, as expressed in Stated Meeting; the cost is now $100 per Noble and $25 for spouse. The Temple will pay $50 (1/2) of Noble fee if attending. It's in Fort Worth this year - very close to us. Let's have
a good showing. Call Cathy for details.
Our Potentate has a project that was brought to Unit Council and was passed unanimously. We talked to Nobility
last Stated Meeting as well. This is the expansion of the Oasis. The plan is to expand into the Clown Unit room
and put up the Crap Table and Blackjack tables. We see several advantages including rentals. Any questions,
please ask any Divan member.
That's about it for this month, OH wait - we had a free chicken-fried steak dinner at Stated Meeting. 43 Nobles
attended! May do that again
Calvin Carlton, PP Recorder
Well we are off and running with our new Divan in place. It has been a much smoother transition than I expected. We seem to be going the same direction. We have just come off of a couple of rather good events. First the Potentate's Ball, was decorated very nice, thanks Rickie and the girls. Good food, good DJ, casino night was fun as well. Good start to our Potentate and Lady. Next was Divan Mid-Winter in Granbury. Was very informative and returned with lots to think and talk about. Per Capita dues increase surfaced again. It will be voted on at Imperial this summer. There is some Hospital information I will report on at next Stated Meeting on
Lady Rickie has received a lot of support from a lot of the ladies, not just Divan. I want to thank all, but a special shout out to Jody Miller. I know for a fact she has been in the middle of both special events to make sure they looked good and ran smooth. Thanks Lady Jody! Also during Super Bowl, Dee Ann Reed is the guru of the betting boards. From making boards, organizing betting squares, paying out, and just knowing how many supplies needed to pull it all off. Also the Food Bank donation!
Thanks Lady Dee Ann.
As always we need members desperately. We only have 1 vote at Imperial because we dropped below 300 members. Let's shake the bushes and get some fresh ideas in our Temple.
Get ready for a good O.G. Trip. We have the bus again, we have golf, Hospital Tour, bowling, gambling, and good fellowship. Wheels up 2-23-23 @ 4pm. Don't miss it!
Calvin Carlton, PP Recorder
We are in a New Year and it looks to have some promise. We installed new officers with a new Potentate, Mike Knox. It was good to see some Nobles at the stated meeting we haven't seen in quite some time. We all hope this continues thru the rest of the year. We also have great expectations for Potentate Knox and his lady Rickie. They have planned a fun and interesting Potentate's Ball on January 28th. Hope t see a bunch of Nobles and guests in attendance.
I also want to give a shout out to our outgoing Potentate, Dooby Fox, and Lady JoAnn. They set the bar pretty high for anyone to follow. Dooby, I just want to say from the entire Nobility--it has truly been a pleasure. Thank you both for your service and commitment. Good Luck.
Second big news: If you haven't heard, we had a Noble step up and ask us about running for O.G. Brian Gaylor was nominated and elected into that office last stated meeting. This is Bill and Kathy Hammack's son-in-law. I'm sure most have met him and his wife. They have been attending for years. I think Brian and Manya will be a good addition to the Divan. Glad to have ya'll.
It looks promising on our O.G. trip, everything on target. We need about 25+ people going to justify the cost of the bus. So if you plan to go, please call Cathy at the office and get on the list. I think we will have gun again, and I am looking forward to some fellowship and a Hospital tour.
I want to speak for a minute about membership. We are currently down to 289 Nobles. We did have a good year last year as far as new members, but the Black Camel and suspensions really took it's toll. Please invite some non Shriners to our events just to expose them to what we do. We have the best kept secret in Texas but sure need to let people know!!
We had 44 Nobles at the stated meeting last night. This was our Election night, and we also brought in one new member and one visitor that is moving his membership to Maskat, for a total of two--great news again!! Our total membership is still hovering above 300 even with the Black Camel visiting almost every month.
Our last two special events went very well with good participation by Nobility. First, the Turkey Cook: We cooked 200 turkeys over a Saturday and Sunday before Thanksgiving. They turned out great. I have eaten from 2 different ones and both were fantastic. Had a lot of other good comments on the quality, and we made $2,281 for the Temple. The other event was the Foster Kids Christmas Party. We had lots of help purchasing and wrapping the gifts and the cooking unit cooked hamburgers and hot dogs for all. The turnout was a little weak from Parents and Kids, but those who came had a good time, presents, food, and a visit from Santa!!
Our Potentate's Ball is upcoming on the 28th of January. Also scheduled is the O.G. trip; it's on the books for February 23-26.
The last item I want to mention is the Elections. I really don't know what to think or how to address this. We had NO-ONE run for O.G. This is a first for Maskat. Excuses are just that. Excuses. Our current Potentate drove an hour each day 3-4 times a week for 5 years, and many others worked 60 plus hour-a-week jobs while on the Divan--myself included.
I implore someone to tell me where we are missing the boat. We must be doing something wrong.
Our Stated Meeting last night had 45 Nobles in attendance. Not a bad showing, 2 more than last month. We did give Harry Warren his 40 yar pin and certificate. Thanks Harry for 40 years of dedication to Maskat Temple and the Provost Guard.
We brought in another new member last night and was able to report we didn't see the Black Camel last month!! We have had a pretty good year as far as new members in 2022. That sure feels good, let's see if we can keep that trend going thru next year.
I sure want to say something about our Rib Cook. 125 racks of ribs were sold and we made $1693.51 for the Temple. A big THANK YOU to all the Nobles involved. Some of the best ribs, if not the best, I have ever had.
Our next fundraiser is coming soon - the Turkey Cook. We will cook 200 turkeys on the 19th& 20th of November. I believe sales are going to be good at this point.
We will decorate the Temple for Christmas November 26th, with the Foster Kids Christmas Party on December 5th, 6pm. We will be purchasing gifts and food December 4th 12 noon at WalMart I-44. We can always use some help purchasing and wrapping on the 4th, also need cookers on the 5th. This is not a fundraiser but is one of the most rewarding events of the year. Come on out and let's have some fun.
I have to give a shout our to PP and Treasuer Greg Stockton. He is recovering from major back surgery. Heal yourself my friend. Also found out last night Gordy has Gloria in the hospital. Our prayers and best wishes for speedy recovery for both.
We had our stated meeting last night with 43 Nobles in attendance. It was great to see some guys I haven't seen in a while. We gave out some long time Service Awards ranging from 25 years to 55 years. I want to thank each of the recipients for their dedicated years of service to our fraternity.
We have some upcoming events that need to be attended. First in October 18th Calendar meeting for 2023 in the Oasis. We do need every unit to attend so we can get their dates down. Again this will be over by the time the Wildcat comes out. We also have the Maskat Happy Hour October 20th in the Oasis. See ya there!!
Don't forget about our Rib Cook. October 22nd Terry Martin will be cooking his world famous Ribs, $25 per slab, hot and ready to eat that Saturday. Please call Cathy to secure yours now.
The 19th & 20th of November is our Turkey Cook. We will cook 200 and sell each for $35. As you know everything has gone up but we held our price at the same level as last year. Please participate in this fundraiser and get your turkeys; call Cathy in the office.
I am going to ask this one more time, we need some people to run for O.G. I have heard from no one (0). Please if you have any question, call me or any Divan member.
Well we have had "several" outings in the last couple of weeks and I have seen a flock of Nobles. First was the Steak Cook-off, and it was a good one. 34 teams competed, weather was great, and we had plenty of Nobles to handle the needs of the Temple. Over $1,000 was raised for the Temple with little effort on our part.
And then came the Circus on September 5th & 6th at the Mounted Patrol Arena. Monday the 5th was a very good crowd. The parking lots were full and organized, thanks to the parking team of Ed, Joes, and yes Charles Dean. Good job by Mike Knox as chairman and the participation of a lot of Nobles and their ladies. Thanks brothers for stepping up to make this a success. We will end up making $7,009+.
We had a rather thin stated meeting because of the Potentate trip but managed 36 Nobles attending. We have had some progress reports attesting to a great time in Cabo. Ya'll have fun and wish we could have all been there.
We do have a couple of things upcoming. October 1st we are calling for a workday to help put up lighting in the cooking area. This shouldn't take long with just a little help. It's the last (one of) steps to complete that project. If you haven't seen it please take time to step out and lot!! October 5th is Unit Council meeting in the Oasis with stated meeting October 11th. Please attend both if possible.
The Temple is selling racks of ribs (Terry Martin style) on October 22nd pickup. Call Cathy in office to secure yours. $25/slab.
I pleaded last month for some folks to take a hard look at running for O.G. I have heard nothing!! So let me ask again for some Nobles to Step-UP and let us know. I will promise it is an experience you would not take a million dollars for.
Questions call or stop ay Divan member. Thank you.
Well once again this article is going out and we still haven't been together. I do miss you slugs!! We will have a very busy start to September with Steak Cook-Off on the 3rd at the Hatton Road Land. Follow this up with the Circus September 5th and 6th. All of this is over the Labor Day weekend.
The Unit Council and Divan meeting has been moved from Wednesday, September 7th, to Monday, September 12th, with stated meeting on Tuesday, September 13th. Dinner will b e at 6:30 and meeting at 7:30. As I have said before, by the time you read this it's all over.
I do have one burning issue that surfaces every fall. We are in need of a couple of qualified Nobles to take a hard look at running for Oriental Guide. Everyone has a valid excuse not to run now, "but I will later." Keep in mind there may not be a Shrine Temple when that time happens. I'm just asking. The Temple needs a good qualified O.G. If there are any questions please ask me or any Divan member.
Go ask the man in the mirror -- is now the time for you?
Calvin Carlton PP, Recorder
It seems like forever since we have been together. I know it was a fast and busy June but I must say that once again when we had to have people show up and participate, we were there. With TSA and the Oil Bowl behind us, I want to say Great Job Maskat Nobility. As most know, I drove Imperial Sir Bill Bailey to all functions and had Sir Jerry Gantt with us for two days, point being they were happy with all functions and attendance. I heard nothing but
positive comments from them. Hats off to all!
Now the Oil Bowl, I was impressed with the Iowa Park facility. It was smaller and made our crowd look impressive. It was very clean and good looking stadium. Basketball had a good crowd and Volleyball was a respectful crowd as well. Good job Yoshi (forever chair).
Well this is written the last week of July so we are still dark in August. Hope to see some of y'all during this period. Remember we have Units Council September 7th, 6:30pm in the Oasis and our Stated Meeting will be September 13th, dinner at 6:30pm and meeting at 7:30pm. Hope to see you at both.
Wow, who turned on the heater?? Temperatures are heating up and so is our calendar. We just finished our Maskat Shrine Golf Tournament last Friday and it was a successful event. The weather was nice with little wind and we had about 100 players in the tournament. Scott Anderson and River Creek golf course really went the extra mile to help us 1 Gordy did a first class job! Gordy also wanted to be sure and thank all the Nobles and Ladies that were there to support the event. Great Job by all !!!
We are getting geared up for our CRAWFISH BOIL May 21st. We expect a good group to attend. Will give you an update on this next month.
Ok, here comes June. Starting with units council on Wednesday June 1st, then our own TSA the 8th - 11th. Bruce and his team have the ball rolling downhill on this. We can always use the extra help if you don't have an assigned job, please call Bruce or Cathy. We have got to knock this out of the park. We then roll into Stated Meeting on the 14th --AND - the Oil Bowl events start and run until the 18th. Yoshi has been on this for months. FYI the football game will be held in Iowa Park stadium this year because of some construction at Memorial Stadium. Again help needed if possible. Call Yoshi or Cathy. June 20th we have our largest rental of the year. The Jr Norris Pool Tournament. They rent the entire Temple for a week. It's a good revenue stream for the Temple.
After all this we are dark for 2 months (July 1 August).
Oh, a little bit more good news, we had over 50 Nobles attend the stated meeting and we brought in a new
A lot going on - please help if at all possible or come out and enjoy what is happening with your Temple.
Thanks and hope to see you soon!!
Well it's already mid-April, grass is growing and bushes are coming back to life. Must be time for the annual Maskat Easter Egg Hunt. This is certainly one of my favorite events. I do like seeing the look on those kids faces with a basket full of eggs. I hope to see a bunch of Nobles with kids and grand kids at this fun event. More on the outcome of this later!!
We had an idea brought to Unit Council of forming a phone committee. I understand this has been done in the past and was rather successful. But..it faded away. We are going to crank it up again. Until we get a committee in place we have asked Unit heads to call the people in their respective unit and inform them of meetings and upcoming events. I covered this last night in our stated meeting. I hope it will yield needed results. We will work on getting a solid committee together. Until then I want to thank the unit heads!!
One of our largest special events is fast approaching. The Maskat Shrine Golf Tournament. The date is May 6th at River Creek. Gordy, Ed Hall, and the rest of the crew have been working hard on this and we are assured it will be full again this year. Call Cathy to enter single or a team - 766-4511 .
TSA is coming here in June. We need lots of help to make this happen in true Maskat style. Call Cathy or Bruce Urban 642-5284 if you can help out.
On our last stated meeting April 12th we had 43 Nobles signed in (not bad but could be better).
Our meeting was short but very informative, and the meal was first class. Hope you can make the May 10th meeting !!
