2016 Camp Survey

Thank you for taking the time to respond to our first camp survey.

Secret Meeting Reminder

Compatriots, Friends, Associates, Ladies, Guests and Prospective Members:
ORDER IN THE COURT!!  ORDER IN THE COURT!!  ORDER IN THE COURT!!
 
HERE COME DE JUDGE; HERE COME DE JUDGE; HERE COME DE JUDGE; ORDER IN THE COURT!!
Actually, as far as I know, there will be no judges attending our next Fire Eaters meeting on August 3, 2016.  I plan to check with the Judge Advocate to see if it is even legal for judges to attend Fire Eaters meetings!!!!!  (Based on some recent court decisions, well, you know!)
DO I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION YET????!!!
If you fail to get your buns down to the August 3, 2016 Fire Eaters Meeting at Anna’s Italian Restaurant you will miss out on all of the festivities, frivolity, fun, camaraderie, hoot’in, holler’in, laughter and food of the renowned Fire Eaters Fellowship and Dinner hour.  Rumor has it that our Fun Bunch (you know who you are) was so loud and boisterous last month that the Governor had his State Dinner totally ruined all the way downtown in the Governor’s Mansion!!!  You have got to be a part of this wild event coming up next Wednesday right up Mechanicsville Turnpike, across from Lee Davis High School. During that pre-meeting hour we do not have Order in the Court, we are proud to have DISORDER IN THE ROOM!!!  You have got to get in on this stuff.  Come on down and join in the fun.
Seriously, the Fire Eaters have a great time together because we enjoy each other’s company.  Additionally we have educational speakers making presentations about aspects of Southern history during and around the time of the War for Southern Independence.  We need to know the true history of the South and the Cause to be able to counter the PC stories that are taught in schools.  Our keynote speaker on August 3 will be Bert Dunkerly, of the National Park Service, talking about the battles and NPS battlefield parks around the Richmond area.
The members of our Camp are dedicated Sons of Confederate Veterans.  We are fortunate to have tremendous support from the OCR members, the ANV Mechanized Cavalry and the Virginia Flaggers.
You really are missing out on something important and special when you do not attend our Camp meetings.  We need your participation and ideas to help us grow and continue the work needed to support the Cause, fly the Flag and and defeat those who want to tear down everything and anything Southern.
COME ON DOWN.  WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.  YOU NEED TO HAVE FUN JOINING OR JUST LISTENING TO THE FIRE EATERS’ FUN BUNCH!!!
BE THERE AUGUST 3, 2016 at 6:00 p.m., which is when the fun starts.  (The food is good too!)
I look forward to seeing you all then.

July Meeting!

Hey Y’all:
“It’s Summer Time and the Living is Easy!!”  Or as we used to sing when I was a little boy:  “It’s Supper Time and the Liver is Greasy!!!”
It is July already, 2017 is half over and it is time for Fire Eaters, Friends, Associates and OCR Members to gather to break bread together.
Are you bored?  Are you craving excitement?  Are you searching for adventure?  Do you feel there is something missing is your life these days of Summer?  
 
Hey, have I got the solution for you!!!!!  O Yeah!!
GET YOUR BAD SELF DOWN TO ANNA’S ITALIAN RESTAURANT THIS COMING WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 6:00 P.M. FOR DINNER, LAUGHTER, EXCITEMENT, ADVENTURE IN SOCIALIZING WITH OUR WILDEST MEMBERS, AND LIVE ENTERTAINMENT.  AND THAT’S BEFORE THE MEETING OFFICIALLY STARTS!!!!!!
Support your Camp, and your ancestors by attending the July 6 Fire Eaters Camp Meeting.  Our keynote speaker will be Will Glasco, who will speak on the Richmond Blues and the Battle of Roanoke Island.
It is well known fact of life, documented by numerous officially sanctioned scientific studies, that those who attend Fire Eaters Camp Meetings have more fun that the Government’s Recommended Daily Allowance!!!!  You know you want to be a part of that!!!!
So Come on Down and Enjoy Yourself.  Bring your family as well.
We have about 60 members in our Camp.  I look forward to seeing every one of you there to fill the meeting room, wave the FLAG, and demonstrate that SCV members are here to stay.
Take care.
