Our 2023 Kick-Off dinner was held at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Sherwood on Saturday, January 21st. With 35 in attendance I'd say it was a huge success. The high light of the day was handing out the well deserved Cliff Noxon Memorial Service Award to Jim Sweet. For a full description of the award and Jim's service click on the "Our Story" page and then the "Cliff Noxon Service Award" link. Our meeting covered several of our up-coming events (click on the "Up Coming Events" link to view info on our Feb and April events) and a long discussion on hosting a multi-club, multi-day event in Hood River later this year. The club approved the proposal that Dave Van Winkle and John Sailors made. You will hear much more about that very soon. It was decided to hold the event Sunday, Aug 27 - Wednesday, Aug 30. John also gave an update on happenings within CTCI. Thanks to Dave Van Winkle for setting up this dinner and to Kami Baker & Shelley Roberts for the photos.
