     Hi Bob, I just wanted to thank you again for your hospitality last night at the CSBOA Awards Dinner. Roni really enjoyed talking to Ray. I can’t tell you how many people thanked us for coming. I can tell you now, that I had a speech prepared to deliver but I felt it was getting late and people were starting to look at their watches. The speech would have been in the context of the Olympic Games. I was going to verbally award three Gold Medals in different categories.
     The First was to the husbands, wives and significant others who not only allowed, but encouraged us to officiate. To put things in perspective, Roni has seen Basketball on our calendar every Friday night from December 1 thru March 15 for the past 30 years. The Gold would have been awarded to these individuals for their Tolerance and Understanding.
     The Second was to the CSBOA for its efforts in the Fight Against Cancer. 166% of the established goal in the Official’s Fight Against Cancer is no small achievement. The Gold would have been awarded to the CSBOA for its Caring, Compassion and Generosity.
     The Third and final Gold would have been awarded to an individual who has demonstrated that he really cares about doing the “right” thing with every decision he makes. A person, who is driven by well defined goals; sees the positive in every problem and seeks solutions that truly benefit the entire organization. That individual would be YOU! I was to have awarded you the Gold for your Leadership.
                           Thanks for all you do for Board #4. Sincerely, Ron

Awesome achievements
