Well another exciting week in Nevada politics. If you did not go to the Basque Fry then you missed something special. We arrived to find Carol McIntosh and her mom Lynn at the front gate taking tickets. After a quick hello we went in and were immediately struck by the size of the event. They had at least three 120 ft x 40 ft tents up and tons of open air seating. Adam Laxalt was there at the entrance taking pictures and saying hello. We also saw and talked to Danny Tarkanian, Sharon Angle, Mark Amodei, and at the very end Dean Heller. Lunch was very good. Kudo’s to them to be able to feed that many people in a fairly short period of time. James Settlemeyer did the introductions and Kevin McCarthy did a good job. So please make plans to come next year. This was a world class event right in our backyard.
We had a general membership meeting last week. It was very well attended and the speaker did a really good job of explaining a difficult and interesting business. If you want to know more, please call or talk to someone that was there. Joe Hooven from Douglas County was also there and asked us to come to the Heritage Day Ranch BBQ (details below). We talked about doing a combined mixer with Douglas County. Let me know if you’re interested in setting something like that up. We also talked about this year’s float. Yes, I am starting to have small panic attacks. If you want to add your input to the float design, call Dan Holden and go to his meetings.
Don’t forget our Republican Leadership Initiative training in Oct. Call Marti Cockell for details. And one more thing, I am still looking for some events to have a booth. Please let me know if you have any ideas.
Please remember all those affected by the hurricane in Texas. When in doubt, give money. Other than that I have not been watching much on the news. I feel better, not as angry and less frustrated.
