LP SUMMIT PRESIDENTS' GROUPS 4 & 6
|It was a dark and stormy night. Our project chairman
was on his way to set up for the latest and greatest CD
project. While driving down the road he came across a bag
filled with a million dollars. This discovery put a stop
to his current journey, and set his mind racing in a
million directions. He picked up cell phone and called
his board members. The chapter treasurer passed out cold
upon hearing the news.
The Chairman of the Board scheduled an emergency board meeting to determine what to do with the bag of money. After assembling at the local chapter house, they sat in awe, thinking of what to do with so much money.
After the president called the meeting to order, it was decided the best way to determine how to utilize the money was to have a brainstorming session. So the all gathered to see how many ideas they could come up with, while keeping in mind that the money was found a could possibly be claimed. They put a time limit on how long to wait and see if it was claimed or not. The CDVP mentioned they should turn in the money, as there may be a generous reward. But Manny, the MDVP, felt that since the major fundraiser was lost, the chapter should keep the money. "Finders Keepers - Losers Weepers, ya know."
But unfortunately, Manny fell out of his chair and hit his head on the table and fell unconscious and the group could think about the right thing to do. After disposing of Manny the group formed "Ground Rules" to help them with their decision. The CDVP thought they should purchase a clubhouse with the funds.
Undecided by their brainstorming, half of the group went home for a two-hour break to have sex with their husbands and/or wives. While taking a well-deserved break and vigorous exercise the president had a thought. The president reassembled the group and excitedly exclaimed that he/she had an idea.
The idea was as follows since we love to break for sex maybe we should spend the money on film making equipment. It was if the floodgates of information had been opened all at once, everyone began to speak at the same time. While the rowdy Jaycees the sex related chanting, Colleen grinned wickedly at Tony and began filling water balloons with syrup. Not wanting to get his clothes dirty, Tony began to get naked! Although, because syrup was all over the floor, Tony slipped, fell down and broke his leg, then the group returned to the discussion of what to do with the money.
The group sat cross-legged around a bonfire trying to come to consensus. Instead they decided to have an Indian pow-wow and pray to the rain gods, while having an I.D. course on making 'smores', still being naked.
Meanwhile, back in the woods, Manny was waking up and found that he was buried in a shallow grave. Manny was upset and decided to go find the rest of the group because he knew it was time to get naked! Then Billy got a black eye in the back of the room, where the Jaycees were conducting a New Member Orientation!
About that time Mike Marshall and Chris Reese stormed into the room and said, "Where's the beer nuts? We heard you guys found a million dollars and we wanted you to remember when you are making your, "To Make Donations To" list, that your national office is always working for you (wink wink). Manny took his clothes off and went to meet the rest of the group but was only able to find a group of HACKS!
