Update and more details as posted July 2 (previous post, May 8), edited to update for today, July 4. Tournament organizer and Mountainair Town Council member Barbara Chung writes,
Last year I kept waiting for a promised report to blog on the initial iteration of the annual Poker Tournament. It never materialized. That was before
This year, I tweeted it early, mid May, blogged briefly May 30, waited for requested background information about the benefit (S.O.P. for non-profit fundraising) and press release or flyer to post even a Facebook event page to share. Burning a feed to the Fb page yield only advertising notices. A question posted there went unanswered. Again nothing bloggable materialized... unless, perhaps its very absence, the yawning information gap.
Almost There! 2012 Mountainair Outlaw BBQ .... and finally! ... a report of sorts on last year's tournament (fyi see tournament and contest pictures posted on Mountainair Online last year in a more timely manner, courtesy of Dennis and Kristi Fulfer, Photographica.
Barbara writes, I want to say a big THANK YOU to all the folks who came out to support the school last year. Your generosity purchased two Battle of the Books sets for the middle school program, and helped send participating readers to the competition in Silver Springs this year. Let’s all come out and support the kids again this year–we’re hoping to extend our support to the primary school program.
