And the winner is ...

Recording the event for posterity.

President John DeWater and Kim Shrader horse around with some Husky-Cougar jokes at the outset of Friday's Anniversary program. Shrader served as Master of Ceremonies for the event, celebrating the BBRC's 14th anniversary.

The winning American League managers pose. On the right is John Nees, representing the Black & Blue Sox, one of the productive teams; and next to him is the Outstanding Commissioner Jim Zidar, Mr. Cool.

VW Beetle winner Michael Schwartz (L) shares the limelight with Jonathan Koshar, who sold Michael his winning ticket.

The top three draft picks from early in the spring show why they were top-rated. Norm Johnson was drafted #2, finished #1 with $2,865; Cary Kopczynski was the top draft pick and finished second with $2,210, and Deasy, the third overall draft pick, came in third with $1,950. The secret
here is to have everybody be #1 draft picks! (L-R, Norm Johnson, Cary Kopczynski, Don Deasy)

National League Managers line up for recognition as the Raffle comes to a close. Czar Deasy on the right.

Entertainment Friday was by ACappella-G0, a trio of women who
specialize in precision harmonies and infectious rhythms in the
tradition of the great "girl" groups, like the Boswell and Andrews Sisters.

Movin’ On!

The announcement will soon be official and the word is already out, so I’m taking this opportunity to let you all know about my news.
I have made a decision to leave United Way of King County after nearly four years of what has turned out to be a very enriching and professionally rewarding experience. The ability to be involved with such an outstanding brand, with an organization that is so instrumental in supporting the quality of life we all enjoy, has been an incredible experience. Until about two weeks ago, I had no immediate intention of moving on. There is still much I can learn here, and the friends, mentors, and colleagues I’ve worked with are treasures.

However, I have been offered the chance to start and grow a development office from scratch for an organization that I have come to love. I will be the Director of Development for AtWork!, a program providing employment for adults with developmental disabilities. In my role as Eastside Community Affairs Manager for United Way, I worked closely with Custom Industries and Community Enterprises of Issaquah as they explored and eventually consummated a merger to become AtWork! The merger behind them, they are now ready to take on the world and I’m very excited to be able to help them do that.

AtWork! is an important part of Our Community Safety Net, and as such United Way of King County is a critical partner. I am delighted I will continue to have an association with my good friends and colleagues at United Way and further carry out the mission of enhancing the ability of people in our community to care for one another. I will remain with United Way through the 1999 campaign (which will be a record setter, just watch), and join AtWork! on January 3rd.

Last Thursday was November 18th, 1999. The numerical format was 11-17-1999. All of the digits are odd.

The next odd day was 11-19-1999, just two days later!

The next odd day won't be till 1-1-3111, well over a thousand years away, which we will never see.

Days such as 4-13-89 have both even and odd digits, thus, it is neither odd nor even.

The next even day will be 2-2-2000, the first one since 8-28-888. TOP

Two robins were sitting in a tree.
"I'm really hungry," said the first one.
"Me, too" said the second. "Let's fly down and find some lunch."
They flew to the ground and found a nice plot of plowed ground full of worms. They ate and ate and ate 'til they could eat no more.
"I'm so full I don't think I can fly back up to the tree," said the first one.
"Me either. Let's just ly here and bask in the warm sun," said the second.
"O.K.," said the first.
They plopped down, basking in the sun. No sooner had they fallen asleep, when a big fat tom cat sneaked up and gobbled them up. As he sat washing his face after his meal, he thought, "I love baskin' robins." TOP
