Greetings to all my friends and foe! Life has been hectic but oh so very fun and fortifying. With Tavern League meetings, Eau Claire Lakes Business Association meetings, Barnes Blog information, golf tournaments, bowling, walking, Elliott events, Yada, Yada! Life is crazy busy! I love it!

The Eau Claire Lakes Business Association met last Wednesday. If any business in Barnes or Gordon would like to join there is still time. Our next meeting is Oct 14 at the Trading Post at 10 a.m. This is the absolute last day to join. We are involved with the Barnes-Gordon Brochure, , Indianhead Publication which is distributed to about 650,000 people and we also advertise in the Hayward Visitor Guide. The cost is 135 a mere pittance to all this exposure. We need your input as well. Please help the cause.

Now on to the Tavern League. This is another organization that is extremely strong. I know we lost the smoking ban but we feel we did our best and we can all live with the compromise. We were instrumental in making the poker machines a misdemeanor violation if caught paying off...we fight for the rights of our members. We recognize those politicians who favor us! Check out I am the President of the Ashland Bayfield Tavern League we have approximately 45 members. The state has about 5000. Contact me if you need more information. October 11, 2009 will be our local fundraiser at Crossroads in Drummond. We still have 100 tickets left.

Barnes Blog is taking off nicely. If you have information or would like to submit advertising please contact us. The cutoff date is the 20th of every month. Thanks to Lu and Mellissa and all that have supported us.

Anyone interested in playing pool please contact me. We are looking to get teams in the Barnes League. perhaps the Namakagon or Iron River leagues.

Bowling has started and we have completed two weeks. Due to not establishing handicaps, I am not sure what we did last week. The first week we last all 7 points. Last week I did get my average twice. Will see what happens this time.

Last weekend we were golfing gurus. Elliott not only played his first tournament but he golfed 3. We did ok. It was Bob Stansky, Scottie, Elliott and I. Scottie won two longest drive awards. We finished at or below par for all three...not bad! A good time was had by all of us!

There will be a Fundraiser for the VFW on Saturday at the VFW starting at noon. Come out and show your support.

Congrats to Bob and Lois Nelsen as they celebrate 60 years of wedding bliss!
