July 2017 Fire Eaters’ Meeting

Hey Everyone:
Did you realize that 2017 is almost history?  Think about it…the days are already getting shorter and 2017 is over have over already!  Can you believe it?
Well don’t panic; we have a solution for you that will allow you to sit back, relax and enjoy good fellowship and reacquaint yourself with your Southern Compatriots.
IT IS CALLED THE JULY 5, 2017 EDMUND RUFFIN FIRE EATERS CAMP #3000 MONTHLY MEETING AT THE BASS PRO SHOPS ON LAKERIDGE PARKWAY SOUTH OF ASHLAND (EXIT 89 FROM I-95.
This month our guest speaker is Ed Harris, who will be speaking on John Bell Hood.  Ed comes to us through the recommendation of John Henry Taylor.
As usual, we will have a large central table in the Restaurant for any and all who want to socialize before the formal meeting.  So gather around the table at 6:00 p.m. (1800 for you military types) to meet, eat and greet.  If you prefer, there are a number of other restaurants in the Ashland area, but the Almadora Restaurant is convenient to our meeting space.  Regular meeting starts at 7:00 p.m. (1900) in the upstairs meeting room.
We need to get everything straight for the upcoming Tomato Festival, so come on down to see what is planned.
The Camp has not had any controversy since the Camp Corvette and Camp Harley fiasco, and I love a good controversy.  Therefore, I urge you to please submit your ideas for a great Camp Controversy to me, so we can see if anyone can get something together that will result in charges being brought this time.
Have fun on July 4th, and get your bad self out to The Bass Pro Shops for our monthly meeting on July 5 at 6:00 p.m.
See you all then.
P.S.: There is absolutely no truth to the rumor that the Stafford County Sheriff’s Swat Team surrounded my residence in an effort to repossess the Camp Corvette.  Don’t believe it, whatever inaccurate, incorrect and blatant falsehoods the liberal press prints about this alleged incident!
