Afternoon everyone;


Here we are licking our paws after Back To The Woods 7 and a big high-five to Kelly for coordinating this year and Vincent for coordinating the show.  If any of ya’ll missed us at the TCC Landsite this year, you missed one heck of a time!  This was definitely a “Once Upon A Time,,,,” to remember.  Also a big bear hug to all who volunteered with cooking, trash and cleanup the whole weekend.  From what I can gather is that next year for B2W8 is gonna be just as a memory that all the previous have been.


Just a heads up for this month, the month of October.  This Sunday, the 23rd, we shall be having our quarterly meeting at Cafe Express on Lamar in downtown Austin.  After the meeting we shall have the planning meeting for the next 2-3 months.  At this time i would ask any and all people who have thoughts to be in attendance since this is a MEMBERSHIP organization.  Your thoughts, ideals and concerns are to be listened to and acted upon with diligence and respect.


Don’t forget our Busts happening twice a month here in the good ol ATX.  One is at Chain Drive on the 1st Sunday of the month and the 3rd Saturday we growl on over to the Iron Bear for Social Draught.  We’ve also got some movie nights happening as well, keep an eye on the calendar as well as our Facebook page for upcoming events.  Bears Night Out this month is on Thursday October 20th at Bone Daddy’s.  Facebook and the calendar have the directions and address.  As for an added surprise, Heart Of Texas Bears should have their new shirts by the beginning of next year.  In a joint effort with Out Youth of Austin, they will be designing our next shirts as our membership shall choose which one they would like and the chosen design shall receive a small congratulatory reward for their hard work and great job well done.  So keep your fuzzy eyes open for the new shirts showing up around or after the New Year.


That’s about it for now;

Pawing Off for now
