From Tricia Bond:
There are still rooms available at the Inn of the Hills for the GP Meeting. But, if they ask for a CASI room, they will be told there are none available. That just means the block is full and the discounted room is not available. They will need to ask for a room at regular rate. If anyone has problems, just let me know.

I got the following email:
August 25, 2011 From Dave FrickerCurrent Rainfall Report
Hello Jim Ezell,
About 10 days ago we were in Alpine and actually
got our shoes muddy along side the Alco parking lot.
The highway 118 corridor to Alpine has received varying
amounts of rainfall. Study Butte has received a bit over
an inch in the past 30 days ... depending where you
are located. Unfortunately at your house and our house
we have received only 1/4 inch of rain .... since August
Going west, there was some rainfall in Lajitas during
the past 30 days, enough to 'Green up' the ocotillos.
About 4 miles east of Lajitas the rainfall ended.
Casi appears to be bone dry as are we. They had isolated
showers in today's forecast but took them out of the forecast.
I hope we get some rain for the Cook-off!
August 26, 2011
Well Jim ..... I knew sending this email to you about rainfall would bring some rain! Sure enough, yesterday Aug 25th we drove to eat at the Basin restaurant and watched the rain form over Terlingua .... not much but between 1/4 and 1/2 inch at our houses.
Later, Dave Fricker
It is Friday and for us here in West Texas, it will be day 88 with temperatures of 100+ and there is not a change in sight. We are to have Temperatures above 105 on a couple of the next 7 days. Here's hoping that if your not cooking chili, you can stay cool.
NOTE: If you are looking for a CCO to attend this weekend and hope to get those last points, remember that this weekend is the CCO in Joplin, MO. Boomtown Days Festival Cookoff will be located in Landrith Park within the City of Joplin. Turn-in is 2 PM. Chili Grind Only. It benefits reparation of the town of Joplin. For more information contact Jon Tupper at 417-781-6713 or 417-439-8606
May the Chili God Chiligula Bless Your Day!

Aloha from Christine Vestfals:
Unfortunately today (last Friday) is my last day at Constellation Wines. It has been wonderful working with you and all the folks at CASI. They are very near and dear to my heart, and I hope to see them all very soon. Although I won’t be representing Woodbridge, my husband and I are still planning on coming to Terlingua.
NOTE: In the conversion process from Word, to PDF to jpeg, some of the information on the Rule changes were lost. I will repost as soon as I have restored that information. I appologize.
From Glenda Vrba:
I have a new email address for CASI members/friends. email@example.com
The other email address is still alive and I check it daily also but if you have CASI business for me please use the new address.

Inside there are more pictures and the story. This has been a long process with many emails and a few phone calls, but seeing this, it was worth it.
Our Heartfilled sympathy goes out to Erma and Guy Smith. Erma's brother, who was 58, died suddenly will on a trip to Washington. Keep Guy and Erma in your prayers.
