Here's June

Not much happening to start this month. I wish more were happening for me, but that's not the case, I'm afraid.

Dad was back in the hospital for a few days late last week and weekend, due to pain he had in his back and lower abdomen. Nothing showed up in the biopsy, so he is back home now. He and Mom say they are happy I am here to help them around the house. I'm glad to know that, although I'd much rather be back out on my own.

Officiated two men's soccer games last Sunday (3 June) at DeSoto Park. The games went well, with no major concerns to deal with among the teams. (I ran line on both matches.) I'm back there this Sunday afternoon for two matches.

Last Tuesday (5 June), I ran the IPMS/St. Louis meeting at Thornhill Branch Library. That night, I presented a slide show of the IPMS/USA Region 5 Convention in Overland Park, Kansas last month. This was well received by the members in attendance. We also started membership renewals and discussed starting a Facebook group, which could supplement or even replace the club's website.

I'm off to Smartt Field in Portage Des Sioux, Missouri (St. Charles County) early tomorrow (Saturday) morning, to help run a Make & Take for IPMS/Gateway. Youngsters with the Young Eagles program of the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) will be there to put together model kits. I'll tell you about that in my next post.
