Oct. 12: Exchange student, announcements & finemaster

Inbound Exchange Student

Isidora Tiska, our exchange student from Chile, watched the Chaska High School Homecoming football game, but is still mystified by the game of American football. She attended the evening dance with her friends, and noted that it closed
at 11 p.m. In Chile, she said, dances don’t start until 11 p.m.


Unbeknownst to most of us, Ron Cossette had another motorcycle accident (his second in as many years) the first week in August, however, he will be back with us today after a couple of months of recovery. There are rumors that his wife said, “NO MORE TOYS”. Welcome back, Ron, we’ve missed you.

Our resident Finemaster, Joe Hoppe-long Cassidy, looked like he was “carrying.” Greg Anderson was in the crosshairs first, then everyone who didn’t correct Joe’s fake announcement of the Marsh Lake dinner and hunt were fined. Jim Dauwalter was brought to his knees followed by Char Weber, Randy Nelson and Angie Lawrence. He then reached into his saddlebag hoping to see a limit next week. We all look forward to next week to see if more fines will be flushed after the Marsh Lake hunt on October 18.

Happy Dollars today were contributed by Joe Hoppe and Ken Norman.
