First Annual Hornets Whiskey Tasting

Hornets,

Alright, it's that time of the year again for our main annual fundraiser.  I have attached the flyers for the First Annual Hornet Whiskey Tasting to be held at Modern Brewery on Saturday June 18th at Noon.  Southtown will be catering food as well.  We typically focus on only one or two fundraising opportunities a year to help support the finances of this club so please participate and sell this event!  This is going to be our biggest fundraiser of the year that keeps this ship sailing, do it!  Invite family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances, etc.  Share this on FB, Twitter, Snapchat, etc.  Get the word out! 

You can write a check, use PayPal on our website, pay with a card, but the easiest may be signing up and paying with Eventbrite.  Here is the link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hornets-whiskey-tasting-at-modern-brewery-tickets-25137565134.  Also, another extremely easy payment method would be to bring payment to the Stinger this weekend or the AGM next week. 

See you there!

We have a fantastic booth this year and if  we can get a good showing can really cash in. Last year we had a tremendous showing of guys and gals who came out, had some fun, and raised some money. I look forward to the same showing as last year. I need Hornets to email me directly with what shift they can work, AM, PM, or both. Am is from 8-2, PM from 2-7. Yes, February 14th is Valentines Day, so bring your lady to help lol. It is also my birthday, so no excuses why you cant come out to help. Events like this make this club run, please find time to have a great time with friends. Volunteers drink free, so keep that in mind if you bring anyone around who wants to help out.

2014 Hornets Stinger - Klav's House

2014 Hornets Stinger - Klav's House

From Klavs:
"I wanted to let you all know that I will be hosting the Stinger this year at my house. I'm sure that more info/details will follow.
I just wanted to tell you guys why. When I came out to the club approx '95/'96, the Stinger and the X-Mas party were hosted at a HOBO's home. Dan Young's house on Marmaduk with the pool, Haskins' place, the Farm in the Valley. Some of the X-Mas parties I remember were at Mick's or Bob Miller's place (I think...I drank to impress). The reason I bring this up is because I've always enjoyed the gatherings at someone's home versus a park or a venue like Pujols 5.  The reason I enjoyed these more is my impression that the home setting always seemed to bring out more of the old boys, wives and children----which is what I hope happens again. It goes without saying that I hope to see all the actives.
I know the dates are no longer fixed in stone as they once were, but if everyone enjoys coming over to my family's place--maybe we can get back to scheduling a date for the STINGER that everyone can put on their yearly calendar for the foreseeable future. This is my first try, so I'm sure there will be hiccups. But whatever happens, show up with your wives/girlfriends, children or some random child that was recently determined to be a love child of Trotters. Also---bring a chair to park your ass. 

Disclaimer: This was not meant as a bag on others' organizing events at parks or catered venues of years past. They kept the traditions alive!!

My address is:
3 Carole Lane
STL MO 63131
2 seconds from Hwy 40 and Spoede Rd.

See everyone soon!

First 2014 Cup Season Practice

Practice for the new Cup season will begin Wednesday, July 30th 2014 and will continue every Wednesday there after. We are still practicing at Monsignor Meyer CYC fields located at 4354 S. Kingshighway St. Louis, MO 63109.  This is near Chippewa and Kingshighway across from St. Mary Magdalen parish and behind the National Guard building, from 7pm-9pm.  There is another rugby team on the same field so be sure to ask for the Hornets or look for our Yellow/Black apparel.

Be booted up and ready to rumble by 7, there is usually some bump going on beforehand to get loosened up as well.  Also, most importantly, be sure to allow some time after practice to enjoy a frosty beverage or two with your fellow Hornets, either at the practice fields or at our local club bars.

2014 St. Louis Hornets Annual Golf Tournament

I am pleased to announce details for the 2014 Hornets Golf Tournament. Please see the attached photos for participation, sponsorships, and donations.

June 14th 2014 at Sunset Hills Golf Course. (Same location as 2013 & 2012.)

This year we have a goal of 100 golfers and raising $10,000 for the club & the charities we are working with. If you have not been in the last few years, this is a great time to get some friends together and come out to help out the club. If your golf swing is worse than Zach Hatraf's loyalty then come on out to eat and drink with your brothers. If you know of any businesses that would be interested in donating to our silent auction or sponsoring a hole, please put me in contact with them as we are always eager to discuss new sponsorship relationships.

This is our biggest event of the year and all are welcome/encouraged to participate on any level. Please contact me if you are interested in helping out the day of or behind the scenes. Also, if you are interested in helping please come one hour early at 6 pm to the AGM meeting which is May 7th at 7pm at Southtown Pub. Please contact myself or Damien with hole sponsorships.

Lets see what happens when we all come together with the same intensity we bring to the pitch!
