GREETINGS FELLOW CLANSMEN.
I know it has been a long time since newsletters, but there has been
little to report on until now. The Jacksonville, Florida games were a
washout and I do mean washout. It rained so much that Peg and I didnít
even attend. Maybe next year will be better. As you know our annual
meeting will be in Atlanta, Peg and I will be staying at the Days Inn in
Stone Mountain. This is also an election year for officers and we need a
good attendance to make our election legitimate. It would be great if we
could get volunteers to fill our positions or just to help out with the
routine details. Please help keep our Clan functioning. I can only do so
much by myself.
Speaking of dues. If you will notice on the envelope
I have put the date that your last dues were paid. If they are not current
please remit your dues as soon as possible. Dues are $10.00 a year.
I will make a motion at our next meeting to elevate
Herbert Blackstock to Honorary Chief of clan and to refill the position of
President. Herbert is in a nursing home in Abeline, Tx and can no longer
attend the functions as president. He is living in at the North Oaks
Nursing Home phone (915) 673-2068 if you wish to call him. He is doing
very well and sends his best to all.
We also have Clan Blackstock books available again.
They are exact copies of Helen Womackís book and have a brown cover. Cost
is $65.00, which includes shipping and handling. We are not making a lot
of money on these books and our dues payments have dried up so we need
ideas to generate income for our clan newsletter and expenses. Please help
me come up with ideas that we can all contribute to. Unless our income
picks up I am afraid I will have to discontinue annual newsletters. Hope
to see you at the Stone Mountain Games. RICK
Peg has managed to get Blackstock tartan in
lightweight cotton and will have neckties and sashes for sale at the

rosette pins and hopes to have them available also.
