I would like to thank Dan Neaf for doing a great job as always with the Calcutta. Special thanks to Kathy Anderson and her staff for all they did serving us food and drink all weekend. You are all so nice and polite and we really appreciate it. Kathy was able to bring in $250 to each event for a total of $500 that she got from sponsors. I can’t tell you how much that was very much appreciated.
