As everyone knows by now the Winter Conference is coming up on December 6, 7, & 8, 2013 at the Clarion Waterfront Hotel. For Reservations call 317-299-8400.
The Special Olympics Bowling on December 7, 2013 schedule will be:
Western Bowl - District I 9:00 am
District III 1:00 pm Opening Ceremonies will be held at this time
Woodland Bowl - District II 9:00 am Opening Ceremonies will be held at this time
District IV 1:00 pm
The cutoff date for purchasing tickets is November 30th Tuesday December 2nd and there will absolutely not be tickets available at the door. We are encouraging members to attend the banquet and to this end the hospitality room will be closed while the banquet and program are underway. After the dinner we will have the $10 Christmas gift exchange as in previous years.
To promote the holiday spirit the Commander is asking that on Sunday December 8th instead of wearing your normal uniform attire that you wear a holiday shirt/sweater instead.
Let's all work with the Special Olympics kids because it's the AMVETS thing to do and I hope to see you all at our Winter Conference!
Department Directory 2013 - 2014
The new Department Directory is complete and available for download at:
I will be coming out with a Revision 1 to the Directory very soon so please send me any errors or omissions you may find so that I may include them in the update.
Membership Reports & Membership Cards
I now have a 'Membership Report' page which contains an ongoing report for the Department, Districts and Posts. I plan to update this report on a weekly basis. It may contain a few errors - I am trying to work out a few with National at this time but have updated the database to remove the errors. If you find that you have different numbers for your post make sure you contact me as soon as possible to get the situation cleared up. If there is any other information you would like me to add to the report contact me as well.
Membership Cards are in! They came in a couple of days ago and I will spend most of next week getting them out. You should expect them in a week or week and a half depending on whether you are the first or last to get out. If you would like to pick them up personally at the Department HQ let me know and I will have them ready for you.
