Not a busy day in the life of Sergeant At Arms Martinka. He hassled Chuck Barnes for his trying to move up the democratic process and for hassling Martinka because his (Barnes’) club anniversary wasn’t announced publicly. Steve Goldfarb was hassled, but not fined, since he owns a RIP (Rotary Insurance Policy). John gave a heads up for a Valentine’s schtick set for – what else – Friday, February 14. Kimbrough and Hyodo were fined $1.00 after the fact for an undisclosed misdemeanor. Hyodo and DeWater were also chided, but we can’t remember what for.
SAA Martinka hassling everyone.
