We had active participation in our Spring Fling for dinner and our fun auction. We were thrilled to actually meet our Registrar, Robin Hancock and her husband. We had several newer members there such as The Deline family from Michigan and the Edward’s family from Oklahoma. A good time was had by all and as always we enjoyed the great food from Nolands Catering. We want once again to thank the Comfort Inn in Macon from donating the meeting room it was greatly appreciated.
The current bid for the large center ad on our fund raising promotional T Shirts is up to $325.00. Better get your bid in or up the one you made previously.
Contact Robin at the WWA office at 254.797.3032 or Watusicattle@outlook.com.
A part of this life unfortunately includes our losses. We wish to extend our condolences to Vernon Base in the loss of his mother, Alice in March 2015. Alice was 92 years old at the time of her passing, we should all be so blessed to have our loved ones so long.
We have continued to receive bids on the large ad in the center back of our proposed promotional T Shirts. The current high bid is $300.00. We have until the middle of June to keep accepting bids on the larger as as well as selling the spots for the smaller ads that will surround it. Plan before it is too late.
We wish to express our sorrow for the loss of Dennis Sissom, a longtime member of the WWA from Missouri. We were unaware of his battle with cancer and his passing until recently. Dennis was a popular addition to our Association and will be missed.
There are several new events to report on as a result of our Spring Fling at Macon and our most recent meeting of the Board of Directors.
Fund raising is a constant and necessary to all organizations and is particularly urgent for small groups such as ours. We held a very successful ‘Fun Auction’ at our get together bringing in close to $2000.00. This is a great boost to our bottom line but the more the better.
The Board of Director’s has decided to produce a new T-Shirt which will include advertising from our members or other enthusiasts. The back of the shirt will include a large center ad surrounded by 12 small approximately business card size ads with a brand or logo and one line of text.
FROM THE OFFICE: WWA is taking bids on a picture of an animal with two line text to go on the back of new t-shirts. These bids will begin at $205. Also, there will be approximately 12 ads/ brands with one line text sold for $30 a piece to go around the picture on the back of the t-shirt.
Bids for the picture have to turned in to Robin Hancock, Registrar, by June 15. Ads/Brands Graphics have to be e-mailed to Robin by July 1. T-shirts will cost $15, $12 for hats and $10 for bag. Robin’s e-mail address is email@example.com and the phone number is 254-797-3032.
Please help us get the word around and tell your family, friends and neighbors as they do not have to be a WWA member to put an ad/brand on the back of the shirt.
Now let’s get these bids rolling to have your animal on this t-shirt as only one will go on the t-shirt back. Also, place your ads/brands on these new t-shirts. Space will be limited. While you are doing this, remember to order your t-shirts for yourself, workers, family, friends and for gifts for Christmas or Birthdays.
Thanks for your quick responses to Robin.
Spring is finally here, at least for most of us. In celebration the World Watusi Association is sponsoring our annual ‘Spring Fling’ in conjunction with the Lolli Bros. Exotic Animal Sale (www.lollibros.com) in Macon, Missouri. This get-together will be held at the Comfort Inn at 7:00pm on Wednesday, April 8, 2015. All are welcome. Come for the great food, the conversation, the stories (true and exaggerated) with fellow watusi enthusiasts. As part of our gathering we will once again hold our ‘fun auction’ of donated items, the proceeds of which go directly to the Association. Bring your wallet, grease your arm so that it can be raised quickly and often…bring a donation if you can. We never know exactly what will be available but the items that we are already aware of include a Western Belt and spice mix donated by Flint Feed, of Steelville, Missouri; a 2 gallon sprayer donated by Meeks Lumber Company; a tanned alligator hide sent by Don Morgan, Florida; a 50 pound bag of minerals donated by D&D Feed of Nixa, Missouri; an original art display made by Missouri Artist Bill Langley (photo attached) we can accept proxy bids if you can not attend; a hand carved set of ebony wood figural African candlesticks and molded watusi bull figurine from Liar’s Lake, Missouri; plush stuffed watusi from Judd Watusi, Kentucky; a candle from Cowboy Corral, Spokane, Missouri; a jug of cattle wormer donated by Nixa Hardware, Nixa, Missouri; 2 gallons of cattle spray from Tractor Supply and more items to come.
