Archive for November, 2010
Is it just me, or does it seem like 2010 has flown by? It seems as though we were celebrating a new year just a few months ago. I guess that happens when you get older…LOL. This last month or so has kept us here at the HOT Bears pretty busy…a late summer pool party (THANKS Joe and Tom), the usual bear events, and of course Back To The Woods 6 (B2W6). If you did not make this years camp-out, you missed a really good time. The weather was PERFECT! We had 131 registered attendees, with many of them being first timers too! The show was a HOOT with many laughs and new performers. (FYI…we will watch the DVD of the show at this years Holiday Party…so make sure to be there for that.) There were also fond remembrances too of Ed, Kiwi, and Richard…..who were greatly missed by everyone. Texas Redbud trees to commemorate their lives were planted in the Bear Garden so that all campers to TCC can enjoy the beauty and remember them as well.
I want to take this opportunity to welcome all the new members that have joined in the last couple of months as well. It is our hope that as you get plugged in, you will get to know a new friend or two by attending one of the many events listed in the calendar (see link above).. After all, that is why the club was created. If you have any suggestions on events that you would like to see us do, please feel free to drop us a line, or catch us at one of the monthly planning meetings. They are open to all club members and your participation makes our club even better!
This year’s holiday party is being held again at the home of Leonard Schleuter on Saturday, December 11th at 7:00pm. The club will furnish a main holiday dish and drinks (sodas, beer, water), and we are asking all those that attend to bring a potluck side dish or dessert. We will also be collecting NEW and UNWRAPPED toys that we will then give to organizations that will distribute them to children who might not have a toy to unwrap this holiday season. So don your gay apparel and come ready deck the halls with fun, laughter, and H.O.T. Bear brotherhood.
