Guest Speaker/Program

Rick Franza explained the annual college Pick’em contest that will start the week of 8/30. Participation is voluntary, but strongly encouraged. We will compete for 16 weeks and weekly winners will receive a $50 restaurant gift card.  At the end of the contest, prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. In order to be eligible for the overall prizes, you must compete in at least 75% of the weekly contest (12 out of 16). We will use the points spread to select games and the tiebreaker will be the total number of points scored in the “Game of the Week”.

After Rick’s contest remarks, we were treated to scouting reports from the following club members:

  • Wes Brown – Auburn Tigers
  • Chris Mckinney – Oregon Ducks
  • Frank Mulherin – Georgia Bulldogs
  • Jerry Rogers – Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
  • Dee Beard – Clemson Tigers
  • Rick Franza – Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Next week we will have Dr. Frank Xie speaking to us about “why human rights in China are important for Americans. 

President Shanda led us in reciting the four-way test and then adjourned the meeting.
