Chris Wilson, our local rock star and chapter's graphic artist, started this meeting by having us all express which personality trait we have that we are grateful for. The act of affirming our personal strengths was a great way to start off the morning.
Meeting New People is one of the best parts of our weekly meeting. Today our guests included:
- The father & son team of Maurice & Maurice Jr, the electricians at Montiel Electric
- Nesli Ayakta, a commercial photographer
- Returning for the 2nd time, Damion Jackson
- and our newest member, Ryan Clardy from Canopy HR
Our newest member, Ryan was unanimously voted in as our new payroll services specialist. If you know a company that is handling payroll themselves, we suggest contacting Ryan to see if Canopy HR can relieve their payroll stress, save them some money, and keep their employees happy with timely and accurate pay checks.
Everybody welcome Mike! Mike Calabrese is a painter and our newest member. It's great to see our group vigorously growing and we look forward to surpassing that all important 30 member milestone (we're currently @ 28).
Needles and Points. Allen Stovall's (5Element.org) show boat featured a teaching tool he uses when teaching new acupuncture students. It was a model of a human with all of the meridians and pressure points drawn on it. It makes me and Llewellyn wonder if he sees everybody with these points and lines drawn over them. We're glad that he uses his powers for good.
Loosen Up. Mike Deibler helped work out the morning stiffness and get our meeting going with some neck, hip, and knee rolls. I know it seems almost too easy coming from our personal trainer. Go to his Tuesday Bootcamp's @ Balboa Park for the industrial strength workout.
We would also like to thank our guest, Ryan Clardy from Canopy HR, a payroll company, for making it out to his second meeting. Ryan mentioned that he had been to many different networking groups, and is excited about the energy at our chapter. We'd like thank Ryan for his kind words and all of you for making our group great!

Can you outlast your competition?
Mikel started off our meeting a yoga-themed version of 'last man standing,' starting off with an easy tree pose and getting progressively harder till there was only one man left standing (and hopping). Our winners, two of our guests, Derek and Bryan, went home with a set of Mikel's hand made pottery.

What a STUPENDOUS day it was this past Saturday!
The weatherman was predicting gloom and rain for the date of our event, but it turned out to be a perfect day for our summer mixer - not too hot, not too cold, and exactly the right amount of San Diego sun. It was a lot of fun getting to know each other and our friends and family outside of our regular Thursday networking meetings.
Thank you to everybody that brought a dish for the picnic - the pasta, coleslaw, chili, salad, and everything else was delicious. Our menu's 'taste sensation' was Shane's TREMENDOUS ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. Thanks for filling our bellies, Shane! My son, Ryan, really enjoyed those toffee/caramel cookies too.
Are you game?
Ana Meyers (and her husband, Ben) put aside her 'bookkeeper' role for a couple of hours and was our 'Game Master'. The kids had a bunch of fun (with a bunch of great prizes) with the plethora of games she had lined up for them: Relay Races, Lawn Darts, and the always exciting water balloon toss. Sue contributed the perfect game to follow the water balloon toss - the popped-water-balloon-scrap-pickup contest.
We also had an adult water balloon contest too. Is there any correlation in water-balloon tossing skill and youth? Erin Fong and Chris Wilson were the dynamic duo that stayed dry the longest. Congrats!
