I woke up this morning worried that I would have a sort of permanent hangover and hazy outlook.
Instead? I am feeling grateful, more than anything else. Which isn’t much of a surprise when ya think about it.
It was a great year.
Thank you all for the extended party. Thanks to the many dozens of you who contributed to making Class VI the best party on the green. Thanks for bringing flavorful food, brilliant beer, and awesome attitudes.
Thanks for always being there when things were going well, as well as when they weren’t. I can’t express my gratitude towards the many members of the club who made this season so enjoyable.
Friendship & entertainment. It was wonderful.
Thank you, Mark “Grand Poobah” Bodmer for pushing so hard, so often, in so many ways this season to bring about the best possible Class VI experience.
- From negotiating tailgating locations and the chance to set up tailgates to our satisfaction, to working with the Rapids to ensure we all had a fantastic, uninterrupted experience, to the behind-the-scenes work Mark did ensuring the club was funded;
- from the brilliant scarves, pins and other great club items that came about to destroying his car ensuring he got the keg to the party every game;
- and most importantly from the true ability Mark displayed in helping so many people get a chance to be involved with Class VI in so many ways: the discussion board, pre-season party, website, tailgates, Bulldog get-togethers, co-ed soccer team, club items for sale and giveaways, an openness to allowing everyone to find their own way to contribute, and of course — section 108, the home of Class VI.
Thank you, Mark, for inviting me to the party.
Truly, it was a season to remember. And that’s why I feel surprisingly good this morning. I’m filled to the brim with comfortable, warm memories of time spent with lots of good friends. No matter how cold it gets out there
