It looks like we are ready to close it out! The last vet bill came in and I will be reconciling all the statements this weekend and hope to have a final spreadsheet out shortly. I can guarantee it was the best year we’ve ever had though we will fall short of breaking even – though not by much.
I don’t foresee many changes in 2015. Jeff and I will discuss this weekend and a post on the new Club will go out. Hawthorne starts up Valentine’s Day weekend but I think we’ll leave signups open until the last day of Feb so Clay can start shopping in March.
There was interest for right around 40 people though that number dropped to 23 when signing up for the Yahoo! page started. I sent an email out to everyone that sent me an email address. Jeff sent over a couple as well. Signing up for the Yahoo! page doesn’t necessarily mean that you are in, but it’s a place to interact and vet out with Q&A if you want to be in. Folks that decide that it will not be for them will be able to leave the group without spending a dime.
If you didn’t get an invite (and I sent out 43 of them) it may have disappeared in your SPAM filter or just not made it. If you didn’t get an invite to join Yahoo! groups and you signed up for information on the alumni group, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will resend the invitation. You will need to create a Yahoo! ID to join. It will guide you through that free and relatively painless process if you don’t already have one.
THIS group I want to firm up and close out by February 15.
