Modern rock band, Wired, will be playing at Murphy & Scarletti's this weekend and $2.50 Miller Lite bottles!

If you have been wanting to meet the club, this is a great opportunity to meet a good portion of our members plus you get to support a great cause.  One unwrapped toy is required to attend and you get a free raffle ticket for each additional toy you bring.

The Marines will be onsite as well to collect the toys  :mrgreen:

I crashed my Jeep the morning before our last meet & greet at Murphy & Scarletti's. Hope I have better luck this time. Maybe I'll stay home until we leave for Farmington.

SPoke with Dave this afternoon and our youngest daughter will be assisting with the TFT.
