Meeting Highlights December 11th
Meeting Highlights: Appears Ida had incorrect information so Sunriser was off a bit. Jim Huffman and Bud Ackerman Split the Registrar duties. Linda Mast learned her way around the Greeter Duties. This was a membership drive so several guests/prospective members came with member hosts: Roy Loo, Greg Stalker, Scott Luedeman, Jon Berry & Cory Moser.    One new member: Katheryn Tuberty inducted by Stan Steiner. Her husband Dennis in support!  
Thought of the Day: Matt Greenlee gave us:”You can fool some of the people l lof the time, l lof the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time” – A. Lincoln
Sgts. At Arms  Matt Greenlee/Dan Beyer: Extensive extractions:  Jerry, Prez, spun the Wheel for besmirching Matt! John Stewart spun the Wheel on behalf of those who “stole” i.e. traded, gifts at the holiday party: $2@. Marjorie spun the Wheel for her unique 4-Way Test, Jane Anne -fined for trying to tell Matt how to conduct the White elephant at the party. Dwayne Spun for the mistakes on the Sunriser today since he is the coordinator: $4 in, and Glen as the traditional, well dressed, “last person in the door”. Followed by a lot of Happy Bucks!
Speaker 12/11: Wyatt Earp, Wyatt and Doc Holliday
Wyatt opened with a comment that people generally note that he looks pretty good for a 178 year old!  He went on to discuss Hugh O’Brien’s show about him from ’56 – ’61 and how this was followed by his founding of the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Foundation to develop communication and leadership skills in youths. Hugh later explored the idea of a play about the history of Wyatt and asked Wyatt’s late wife to write the play. The first show was in 1996 and played to 350 people, sold out. So it was repeated to allow more to see it.  The show went on to performances in many countries around Europe.  The next show will be it’s 1046 performance. Wyatt himself spent 48 years working for NY Life and then “re-treaded” into entertainment honoring his great, great uncle. At one point, his wife received a trunk full of Doc Holiday’s memorabilia and went on to write a bio-drama about the “gentlemanly Doc Holiday. Wyatt discussed some funny anecdotes:  One time at a Cowboy Poets gathering he was talking to a performer and told him the “shortest distance between two people was a good laugh”. He had written a book about Will Rogers and the performer thought it was his quote. Wyatt said it would have been if Will had thought of it.  On another occasion, after his performance for a school group a little girl came up to Wyatt and said “she had not idea there were cannibals in Tombstone.” Wyatt was puzzled but she went on to comment that he had said that Tombstone ate a man for breakfast every day!”  Wyatt then went on to compare the perspectives of Wyatt and Doc of the Fight at the OK Corral. It highlighted the two different personalities.  Wyatt then reviewed some other highlights of this Great Uncles life and then closed with a touching accolade to his late wife who was an extraordinary Playwright and life partner.

Good Morning Sunupians,
The Holidays will soon be upon us, we have again sponsored a family for Christmas and saved seats at the parade, thanks to all who made those things possible. It was fun listening to Wyatt talk about his great grand uncle and Doc Holliday. I look forward to seeing you at the last meeting of this year.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. Theodore Roosevelt
