1. Review of previous minutes
Mr. Kennedy did not recap the previous meeting and quickly updated staff members about the ongoing incarceration of Mr. Bevins as he awaits a hearing for his unlawful discharge of a firearm charge stemming from an incident with Betty Simmons last week prior to Thursday Night Men's League.
Mr. Vega was emotionally shaken, as was Ms. Adams, who was more confused than shaken. The entire staff sat in silence as Mr. Kennedy spoke. Mr. Bevins has retained the services of Gary “The DUI Hawk” Bailey for representation who forwarded a prepared statement to the staff that Darrel penned from his cell. It read as follows:
My Fellow Americans,
I write to you under the lock and key of an overzealous and overreaching government nanny state in which a taxpaying citizen is not allowed to exercise his second amendment rights. First, let me tell you, I am well. I have cooperated with the staff of the Jackson County Detention Center and have found kindred spirits in the personnel. They were kind enough to relocate me to my own cell after my cellmate, Wayne, was mysteriously beaten in his sleep on my first night. I have been in close contact with my regional field representative with the NRA and he has pledged our organization’s full support. I am scheduled to speak at the Northern Missouri town hall next month in Chillicothe. If you value liberty, I urge you to attend. My attorney, Mr. Gary "The DUI Hawk" Bailey, has advised me to take a plea deal, pay a $500 fine and move on. However, I plan to fight these charges and see justice through. I want to especially thank CPG who has offered to pay my legal fees via shop credit, but I have an adequate personal legal defense fund set aside to fight matters such as this. I will see you all very soon once my fight against this modern tyranny has ended.
“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.” -Thomas Payne
God bless you and God bless the United States of America.
Head Course Marshal
Mr. Kennedy then asked the staff to keep Mr. Bevins in their thoughts and prayers before continuing the meeting.
2. Temporary Course Marshal Staffing
CPG informed the staff that in Mr. Bevins’s absence, Part-Time Deputy Course Marshal George Brinkle will be filling in for him until Mr. Bevins is released. CPG informed the staff that Mr. Brinkle, while experienced, is hard of hearing and in the early stages of dementia. CPG told the attending staff that an “all hands on deck” mentality will be needed until Mr. Bevins returns, which very well could be weeks. Mr. Brinkle was not available during the meeting as he was attending his monthly check up with his urologist.
CPG then pivoted to updates on the Member-Guest tournament. All closest-to-the-pin prizes are locked in. Tom Billington Kia has signed the paperwork. Full steam ahead for the club’s signature annual event. Mr. Vega interjected and said that he had accidentally scheduled his niece’s quinceanera photoshoot on the club grounds that same day. CPG told him she would not have to cancel her photoshoot as long as she stayed near the driving range between 9:15 and 9:30 a.m. and used the netting as a photo backdrop.
CPG then reminded the Staff not to get too comfortable after the Member/Guest because the annual Ladies Member/Member event, the "MILF Masters" was quickly approaching and we need to finish the season on a strong note.
Action: CPG, Vega
4. Fall Wedding Season
Mr. Kennedy notified staff members that the club will see an influx of weekend events as fall wedding season is about to ramp up. The club is double booked for the Warren-Carlson and Chavez-Roches weddings on Saturday, September 21. The Warren-Carlson wedding party has agreed to vacate the premises no later than 4 p.m., as the Chavez-Roches wedding party will be setting up an amateur fireworks display for later in the evening and will need the back two rows of the parking lot to be cleared. The city and county have been notified, a permit has been granted and Mr. Kennedy has signed a waiver that holds the Chavez family responsible for any cosmetic or structural damage to the club in the event of a malfunction with the pyrotechnics. CPG expressed concern that Mr. Bevins will not be in attendance to supervise the event, but Mr. Kennedy remarked that the club would take a significant loss should they cancel the event, since the fireworks were a non-negotiable for the Chavez family.
5. Closing remarks
The Chairperson reminded the staff to keep Mr. Bevins in their thoughts as he closed the meeting and echoed CPG’s “all hands” mentality as the meeting closed.
