     We had three activities since the last issue of THE DROP.
    FIRST was on October 3rd, 2015 at Cris Mandry’s Boathouse to welcome and meet some 7th SF Group members in the area on an FTX. It was really great to meet and talk with these guys about their exercise as well as them getting to know just what Chapter XXX is about and who we are. We provided some fried chicken and side dishes that was enjoyed by all. There were four 7th SF guys present along with fifteen Chapter members. (See group photo).
    SECOND on Saturday October 24th our Quarterly Meeting was held at the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Training Facility and Firing Range in Walker, LA. (The site was arranged by Lloyd Stout). Members were allowed to bring their personal weapons and ammo to fire on the range. All the Sheriff’s pertinent rules and safety procedures were followed and supervised by deputies Jeff Beatty and Clint Gray. Two great guys we got to know. (See photo) The business part or the meeting included. Election of Chapter Officers for 2016-2017, Teller’s Committee Chairman Jim McCurry discussed the procedure as per the Chapter By-Laws, asked for any nominations from the floor then announced the candidates. Members present filled out their ballot, and for those not present ballots will be sent to them. Treasurer’s report and update on status of our Mardi Gras program were given. Annual Members reminded its renewal time (email and applications already sent out). An email was sent on the usual Free Meals for Veterans Day at various local restaurants.
