The last week in March the Main Street Now conference was held in Kansas City, and the final night consisted of a street festival in Lee’s Summit, Kansas City’s Southeast suburb the “Big Bash.” Our Ring was invited to provide a number of street performers. Among those who braved the drizzling rain and the temperature in the low 50’s were Tom Burgoon, Jack Carpenter, Travis Porter, Gene Turner, and Stu Lewis. A large number of the conference attendees and a few locals braved the weather; on the other hand, have you ever tried to find a breather crimp when the humidity crimps the other fifty-one cards?
Our April meeting (moved to the second Thursday) consisted of our annual ring auction. As he has done for the past several years, ring member Terry Davolt served as auctioneer, never losing his manic energy over the three hour event, while Tom Burgoon acted as demonstrator. Thanks also goes to Kirk Deweese and Steve Steiner, who took on the accounting chores. It was a buyers’ auction, with most lots going for under $50.
