Spring Chapter Meeting May 2

The Spring Chapter Meeting will be Saturday, May 2. The event will include the Twins-Royals game that night. More details will follow as they become available. Meanwhile, members are invited to submit a proposal to make a research presentation at the meeting. Proposals must be made in writing (e-mail is fine) to Research Committee Chair Bob Tholkes, 3966 NE Reservoir Boulevard, Columbia Heights, Minnesota 55421-4069, rjtholkes@msn.com, and should include a title and brief outline of what the presentation will consist of with emphasis on the research that will be included. Standard presentations are 20 minutes (with an additional eight minutes for questions) although the duration may be longer or shorter depending on the needs of the presenter and of the schedule. Generally, up to five presentations may be accommodated, and these will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Research Committee (which also consists of Tom Swift, Dan Levitt, Rich Arpi, Cary Smith, and Stew Thornley) will finalize the schedule of research presentations by April 18, two weeks before the meeting, so proposals must be submitted by then.

Other Upcoming Events:
The annual Hot Stove League Meeting will be Saturday night, February 7, at 7 p.m. at the home of Kevin Hennessy, 608 Grand Avenue in St. Paul. This is an informal gathering to discuss baseball among friends. Food and drinks will be available, and donations will be appreciated.

The book club will meet February 14 at Barnes & Noble in Roseville. The reading selection for the book club is Hustle: The Myth, Life, and Lies of Pete Rose by Michael Sokolove.

The next Hot Stove Saturday Morning will be March 7 at Bakers Square in Richfield.
