Gathering Reminder

Hi Everyone,

We have the honor to welcome a new member this week. Ashley joined us last Tuesday. It was great to meet her and hope that she will be with us in the weeks and years to come. And a "thank you" goes out to Dan and Shelly for turning Ashley on to this thing we do every Tuesday. Welcome Ashley!

We're putting this reminder out a day early to let you all know that there is an eclipse watch party at Tom and Karyn's in Woodruff. It starts a 1:00 PM but come early if you need to avoid traffic. Woodruff is in the path of totality, it's going to be (fill in your own descriptive word).! Please contact your hosts for address and phone number, but do so Sunday as we will be on the road early Monday. Everyone is welcome. Bring food and your favorite beverage to share.

So Bannon is out, but not so much. Does anyone else now feel that he will be working harder to promote trump's agenda now that he is free of the constraints associated with the White House?

TOTALITY!

Hi All,

Well certainly "That Was a Week That Was". Our thanks go out to local organizations around our country that organized Sunday demonstrations quickly in opposition to what happened in Charlottesville Saturday.

We have $214.00 in the TANC (Totally Absolutely Non-obligatory Contribution) jar. Let's talk about how we can help with a contribution to fight hatred and bigotry. All suggestions will be considered, SPLC, ACLU, and any others that are suggested around the table. See you all Tuesday with handshakes and hugs.

Hello Everyone,

A big "Thank You" goes out to Bill for hosting last week. And from the picture he posted looks like he did a great job. The Chulick family is back from the hot, dry climate that is Central California after enjoying a wonderful family reunion, and looking forward to being at the gathering Tuesday. We missed you all.

We probably missed most of what has been going on. A Federal Grand Jury investigation? What's that all about? Sounds interesting to say the least.

Early Gathering Reminder

Hi Everyone,

First things first! We have two new members to welcome. Samir and Dawn joined us last Tuesday. It was great to get to know them and hope that they will be with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Dawn and Samir!

Your hosts, Al, Diane and Cass will not be able to attend the gathering on August 1st. But Bill P. has agreed to stand in for us as temporary host. It will all be fine with Bill as host, he's a natural.

Gathering Reminder

Hello Everyone,

It is official! Our new home is at Southport Bar & Grill. The survey results indicated that a vast majority thought that this is the place that we should be. Time to settle in and get comfy. A shout out needs to go to Judith and her staff at Southport for making us feel so welcome, and for the Yummy food!

It's time to give some thought about a Spartanburg DL tee-shirt order. Our friends and members, Scott and Donna at Image Printing will be able to handle this for us, we just need to know how many of us are interested in getting a really cool Tee. Think about it, we'll talk more about this in the next few weeks.

In the last six months has there not been a week where something has been proposed by our federal administration that you didn't just say "what the ----"? Meet us on Tuesday, we'll rant.

Greetings,

The 2017 Summer Tour has ended. We will gather at Southport Bar & Grill this Tuesday to review the survey and get everyone's comments, likes and dislikes, of the places we've been this past month. It's time to settle down again. All suggestions will be welcome. Please attend if you can and let your voice be heard.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal July 15th, the SC State Election Commission stated that there were almost 150,000 attempts to access the SC voter registration system on election day 2016! Anyone else know about this? Has anyone have any knowledge of this? That's a lot of hacking going on.

Hello Everyone,

We're just about ready to wind up The Summer Tour. Our last stop will be at Shakers, 105 S. Pine St. Shakers is owned by the same person that owns Southport, the last pub we visited on the tour. We all had a good time at Southport, lets see what Shakers has to offer.

It's been another busy week, the G20 Summit and SC Republican Party Chairman Drew McKissick wanting to buy the SC voter data and send it to Trump's election fraud commission could be just two topics for discussion.

Spartanburg Drinking Liberally gathers Tuesday July 11th, 6:30 PM at Shakers, 105 S. Pine St. Bring your thoughts to the table.

Hang In There,

Reminder about the Gathering

Greetings Everyone,

Spartanburg DL will be on Holiday Break Tuesday July 4th. We'll gather again July 11th at Shakers, 105 South Pine, to continue our Summer Tour. Enjoy our Independence Day!!

But before we all start celebrating this very important day in our country's history, please consider making a call to SC Gov. Henry McMaster at 1-803-734-2100 and relay to him your thoughts about Trump's election panel requesting voter roll data from all states. This data will include your first, middle, and last name, date of birth, political affiliation, service record, and last four digits of your social security number. There is still time to make our voices heard. Over 20 states have already refused to submit the data. Protect and preserve our freedom, then celebrate.

Cheers,

Al, Cass, and Diane
