North Notes
Spokane North Rotary Club Bulletin

 Thanks: Dave and Robin Hayward and Steve Boharski represented the club at our sponsor’s night at the Mobius Children’s Museum at Holmes Elementary.  Dave said eager 50-60 students attended and said the kids’ science knowledge “was really impressive.”
Scholarship night: The club’s scholarship committee will meet May 9 to decide among three Saling Scholar winners.  Past-president Brian Hipperson is coordinating the event.
Rotary Notes…
                In lieu of a speaker at the meeting, club members socialized and shared recent thoughts:
            Brad Stark’s 10-year-old had a baseball feat of note – an “infield home run.”  Showing the proud video, Brad had a laptop computer showing how the runner kept running while the infielders kept juggling the ball and coaches’ pleas to “stop” were ignored.
            Blooming good: At least five members finished the Bloomsday, including Melinda Keberle, Bill Simer, Dave Hayward, Chad Haverkamp and Brad Stark. Acknowledging Rotary’s Four-Way Test, each participant finished well under two hours and Chad, part of a corporate cup entry, finished at 1:14, fastest of our Bloomies.  Chad said he was chastened a bit though by the young kids who sped by and how easily “a guy at least double my age” ran past him.
            After finishing Bloomsday, a colleague asked Bill Simer to join him at Northern Quest to see comedian Jay Leno’s show and they got to join Leno back stage after the performance. Bill previously has toured Leno’s famous personal garage, but for the Spokane gig, Jay flew not in any of his cars, but a Lear Jet.              “Bloomsday and hanging out with Jay Leno – what a day,” Bill said.
            Following a red-eye flight to Florida to meet a pal, Steve Boharski and his friend motored out to catch some fish, especially tarpon.  Steve’s largest catch – remember the Four-Way Test – was a 180-pound fish.  “It was about as big as me,” Steve said.  A downpour interrupted the 45-minute fight for the fish, but Steve prevailed.  Unfortunately, he said, tarpon is not a very good tasting fish.
