Bids are continuing…..

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.

Sad News

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.

New events

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 watusicattle@outlook.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 Fling

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.

Spring Fling Get-together

February 25, 2015

Dear WWA  Members:

The WWA Board would like to ask you to think Spring and remember our upcoming Spring Fling Wednesday April 8th at 7 pm, Comfort Inn Meeting Room at Macon, MO. We will have a wonderful catered meal together, enjoy some good company, have unique watusi/exotic/African items for our fun auction (donations gladly accepted) and have our board members and registrar available for forms/questions.  Wednesday and Thursday of this April’s Lolli Brothers Auction (watusi sell on Thursday and we will be there as well) would be a great time for asking questions and getting your paperwork in order.

Also, the WWA is going to have a fund raiser to sell t-shirts. The board will be selling ads/logos for back of shirt, auction sleeve spot, and take bids on the main spot for next year. These bids and selling of ads will take place at the April meeting discussed above.

If you have an e-mail address, please e-mail to me at rpjackson@wk.net or send to WWA.

Thanks for your quick response to this request. Hope to see you in the Spring!!

 

Sincerely,

Pamela Jackson

Secretary WWA

RIP Joe Cocker

The World Watusi Association would like to express our condolences to the friends and family of the well known rock and roll artist Joe Cocker.  Those of us in our ‘twilight years’ knew Joe from his music and Woodstock from our teens, but more recently we at the WWA knew him and his wife Pam as lifetime members of the World Watusi Association.  Joe and Pam owned and operated the Mad Dog Ranch in Crawford, Nebraska.  The Mad Dog bloodlines and logo appear in much of the WWA lore.  Joe was 70 years old and had been battling cancer for some time.  He will be missed.
