Topic: Tradition Offering: Congratulations to Dennis True! (12 msgs / 271 lines)
1) From: Bonnie Polkinghorn
My kids had a blast.
I gave them each an equal number of entries.  They each crumpled their
own stack of names.
I had them each throw a practice throw to properly handicap them,
similar to the golf tee-off positions.  The oldest was furthest, the
middle a little closer, the youngest a little closer.
That worked so well, each throw was a virtual tie.  The three that
went the furthest were the finalists.  On the very last throw, there
was a clear winner, it was Dennis, thrown by my son Owen, age 7.
Owen thought *he* won something special and had a major tantrum that
lasted the rest of the night when he found out that the name on the
paper won something and he didn't.
The joys.
So, I'm pleased to announce the True winner:
Dennis
AKA
Firecontrolman First Class (Surface Warfare Air Warfare) Dennis William True
Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who dropped me a note.
Bonnie

Wowie! This is wonderful!  Thanks Bonnie!
Don't forget everyone my Tradition for the MEX OAX closes out Friday
Night
A bit more information on how I'm picking the winner:
I have lots of left over lil plastic eggs from Easter so I am going to
have my wonderful and lovely Wife number the inside of each one for each
entry in the order that I got them in my account.  (So far I have 25
Entries) then all the eggs will go for a swim in my pond in the back
yard!  I will attempt to with my Giant Kids plastic golf club start
hitting the eggs across the yard and the one that goes the farthest will
be the winner 
Just know I don't play golf so the longer your egg stays the chances are
better that I will "learn" the "dynamics of water hazard egg golf" and I
will most likely hit the later ones farther but you just never know!
Yes I will provide some pictures of this spectacular event if any one
will be interested in seeing it.
Thanks again Bonnie!
Dennis

Sigh alas no I am not a Chief I'm 6 for 6 in making it to the board but
not yet selected....
This is why I'm heading to Cuba for a year hopefully this will be one
more thing that will help add weight to my package and will get me
selected
(for the record I had my PT weigh-in today and I'll have you know I am
fully with-in standards so the gut is not yet a factor)

9) From: Ken B
Heh, Navy PT weigh-in means you can walk to the doc's scale by 
yourself?  ;-)  (Sorry, it was there...I HAD to use it!)
