Nunch!

On Sunday March 6th, Harry Fullerton, Jim McCloskey and I were joined by Charlie Briggs at Club Café when we attended the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s annual Nunch. We were there to support the good works of the Sisters and to accept a generous grant of $1,000 for our club to replace our aging office computers. Our current computers are no longer adequate for our needs. They were donated by Harry Fullerton a number of years ago and have served us well, but their time has come.

The Sisters handed out a number of grants to local groups, supporting various segments of our community. The grants were interspersed with a cavalcade of entertainment; singers, comedians, lip-sync acts and, of course, BINGO! As always, the brunch laid out by Club Café was bountiful and delicious. It was an all-round entertaining day!

We are grateful to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for their wonderful generosity. This grant money will allow us to purchase two custom built computers with substantially more storage capacity to serve our club’s needs for years to come. We depend on donations, big & small to help keep our club going. Dues and monies raised from our events only go so far. We thank the Sisters and all those who give a little extra, of their time or money; your support helps make our club and our community great!

March Brainstorming Events

The following is a list of the recommendations made by BPT members at the March meeting. Jim Buckley, who conducted the brainstorming session, assures you that he will begin to respond to the suggestions forthwith. But he wants to caution everyone that none of these activities can be activated by him alone. Each and everyone of them needs and deserves the participation of BPT members who want to see their suggestions become operational. To see your favorite suggestion come into being, e-mail Jim Buckley at historybuckley@yahoo.com and he will begin meeting with you to plan how and when it will start functioning.

Here are the activities in the order they were suggested:

More opportunities to have Social Group Gatherings, a Movie Theater Group, a Volunteer Group (a group of BPT members who volunteer to help at some charity or shelter), a Walking Tour Group, Gay Trips, a Bowling Group, Travel Talks by Members who have been to Interesting Places, a Committee that Welcomes Visiting Prime Timers from Other Chapters, Nude Parties, Karaoke Night/Day, NYC Trip, Group Tours, BBQs, Visiting Sick Group (i.e., members who are willing to visit sick BPT members), Casino Group, Interesting Talks by Members.

Problem areas (i.e., things they don’t like about the BPT activities), in the order they were suggested:

Poor speakers (those in the recent past have not measured up to the caliber of those in the prior years), dearth of Pot Lucks (i.e., they are not as plentiful as they have been in the past), 2:30 PM gathering is too long, boring lectures and there are not enough activities.

2016 Harbor to the Bay Fundraiser

Jim Morgrage told us that he heard from many Prime Timers who expressed interest in helping the Harbor to the Bay Fundraiser. Here are some of the positions they need filled: A board secretary, help with board setup, some help with development (sponsors and fundraising), and seats on the committee to help with all aspects of coordination.

Hosting a Pot Luck Party

Have Space? Host a Pot Luck!

Have you always wanted to host a Pot Luck, but don’t have the room? Do you have plenty of room to host a Pot Luck, but feel it may be too much for you to tackle? Well, we’ve got a great idea. What if we could bring you together with someone who could help you? We’d like to bring potential hosts together with those that have the place but don’t feel they have the skills.

So, one or the other, contact Adam Galbraith at verygoodman@comcast.net and let him know if you’d like to host or have the space to offer. We’d love to help you entertain.

2016 Western Regional Gathering

Las Vegas Prime Timers is holding the 2016 Prime Timers Western Regional Gathering from May 1st-5th, 2016 at the Stratosphere Tower, Hotel & Casino. Room rates for the hotel are only $40.00 per night. The hotel has opened up more rooms for us at that rate.

You can send in your registration form at any time but the room needs to be booked to get the discounted rate.

This year’s Gathering will feature seven seminars and workshops. For fun and recreation, we will be having a private pool party with pizza and beer on the menu, a live Las Vegas show and a spectacular dinner on the 104th floor overlooking all of the Las Vegas valley. Attendees will have free admission for the entire stay to the top of tower. There will be a bar crawl. We will also have a hospitality room that will be open various hours with a full open bar and snacks.

We will be offering two tours that can be booked and paid for at the event: a trip to Hoover (Boulder) Dam and the Big Open Bus City Tour. More information will be forthcoming about the tours.
Registration is $165.00. After February 1st, it will go up to $190.00.

All information about the event is posted on the Worldwide Prime Timers website and the Las Vegas Prime Timers page.
