Howdy Ags,,
Things have been busy the last several weeks with meetings to plan Muster, Fish Fry, and Aggie Night at the Dell Diamond. We have also been working on something for the Red Poppy Festival in Georgetown at the end of April. Stay tuned as more information will be forthcoming as plans come together.
We are also trying to organize a local Big Event Activity. Ideally, we would like to coincide with Big event in Aggieland on March 24, but we are cutting it close and have yet to decide on a way to help out the community. If you know of any non-profit organization that can benefit from a group of Aggies lending a hand, we would love to hear about it. We would still like to help out the Williamson County community even if we can’t pull something together in time to coordinate with Big Event in College Station, so send in your ideas even if they don’t line up with March 24.
March starts on Thursday meaning Thursday is time for Reveille Breakfast at Rudy’s in Round Rock. Come and enjoy some breakfast tacos and hang out with fellow Aggies.
Gig’Em,

It’s also never too early to start planning for Muster, if you would like to volunteer in any way, please email Muster@wcamc.com and we will get you connected.

Howdy Ags,,
 
A couple of weeks ago, we had our Annnual Club Membership Meeting. During the Annual Meeting David Johnson recapped efforts to endow a scholarship through A&M. This is separate from the scholarships funded through the Williamson County A&M Foundation. To further those efforts, the members voted to contribute $5,000 of excess club funds towards the endowment in honor of David Johnson’s service to our club as President for the last 4 years. With that contribution and previous individual contributions, we are approaching 50% of the $25,000 needed to fund our the endowment and start awarding scholarships. If you would like to contribute to the endowment, you can do so at https://www.wcamc.com/endow/. Contributions are through the Texas A&M Foundation and are tax deductible.
 
Additionally, I was elected to replace David Johnson as President and Alan James, Gerry Parker, and Kevin Ross were chosen to join the Board to fill vacancies left by Susan Merriman, Shuler Page, and David Schell.
 
As the new president, let me briefly introduce myself. I graduated from A&M in 1997 and hung around College Station for a few more years as my wife finished her degree and I went to grad school. We moved from College Station to Round Rock just over 10 years ago and became involved with the Williamson County A&M Club not long after, serving as a Board Member for the last two years.
 
Aggie Pizza Night is coming up on Thursday at Double Dave’s in Cedar Park, Georgetown, and Round Rock. Come and hang out with fellow Aggies.

Howdy Ags,
 

Just a quick reminder that tonight is our January Howdy Hour combined with our Annnual Club Membership Meeting. We will gather in the upstairs bar at Gumbos’ North in Georgetown at 5:30, then we will then have our business meeting beginning about 6:30 in the private meeting room, and of course the bar will be open after the meeting as well.
 
Our annual meeting allows us to recap the activities of the club and provide information of what lies ahead. One of our big agenda items this year is a new club president. I have been fortunate to be president of WCAMC over the last several years, however. The current board has worked to present a new slate of officers/board members which will be voted on at the meeting. Please make plans to join us tonight.

Howdy Ags,
 

Winter has certainly set into central Texas, based on the lines at the grocery store you would have thought there was food shortage, not just below 30 temperatures. Fortunately we did not have some of the rain that occurred further south, for the most part, life went on as usual.
 
With January also comes a change for the club, certainly hope you find time to join us for our annual membership meeting which will be held in conjunction with our January – 4th Thursday Howdy Hour. We will gather in the bar at Gumbos’ North – Georgetown about 5:30, we will then have our business meeting beginning about 6:30, of course the bar will be open after the meeting as well. Our annual meeting allows us to recap the activities of the club and provide information of what lies ahead. One of our big agenda items this year is a new club president. I have been fortunate to be president of WCAMC over the last several years, however, I look forward to being involved in a new role as we move forward. The current board has worked to present a new slate of officers/board members which will be voted on at the meeting. Please make plans to join us. 
 
With the start of the new year we are back to our full slate of weekly Thursday activities. If you would like to assist in arranging where we meet for one of our luncheons or Howdy Hours, please let us know. This week we will meet for networking lunch at Tortuga Flats, always a popular spot with a great turn out.

Howdy Ags,
Season’s Greetings to everyone as we have wrapped up Thanksgiving and moving directly to Christmas. Hard to believe the year is coming to an end, as it does we can reflect back, as well as look forward and know that we have much to be ‘Thankful’ for and our blessings are numerous.
As we turn the page on the calendar we prepare for a new year along with new changes. While the football season did not go as some of us had anticipated, the powers at be within the university have made a huge change in hiring a new head coach. We welcome to Aggieland our new coach, James ‘Jimbo’ Fisher, he has a rather impressive resume, I know we all hope it translates on the field. A big higher considering coach’s with a national championship typically stay in place.
Basketball season has also kicked off with a bang for the men and women. After traveling coast to coast the men have jumped out to a 6-0 start and ranked within the Top 10, good way to get things started. Coach Blair and the Lady Ags, while ranked in the Top 25 have faced a tough non-conference schedule. Basketball for both and perhaps both will be looking toward some post season action. Still a good reason to head over to Aggieland now that football season is over.
On another note of change as we enter a new year, your WCAMC Board is up for some changes as well. Your current board has been working on a proposed slate to lead us moving forward and we will review and vote on that at our annual membership meeting scheduled for Thursday 25 January. We will resume our monthly, 4th Thursday Howdy Hours, and start off with our annual membership meeting (location TBD). It is a good time to grab a cocktail, meet some fellow Aggies to discuss all the recent activities, hear about future plans, as well as vote on our new officers and at large board members. If you are interested in getting involved and being on the board, please reach out and let us know as we still have a few ‘at large’ spots available. We would be happy to provide some insight as to the time commitment involved.
As our final major event of the year we will have our Aggie Christmas Party at Gumbo’s North on the Square in Georgetown. There is limited seating for this event (first 45 individuals) and you can hold your spot with a $1 RSVP on our website. Gumbo’s has prepared a variety of meal options for the evening (menu attached) and each group will be billed separately the night of the event. Come enjoy the fellowship of Aggies as well as the great food of Gumbo’s. Saturday, 9 December @ 6:00pm www.wcamc.com/store/.
On a final note, as we begin to wrap up the year, if you are looking to make contributions for tax purposes, please consider donating to our WCAMC Endowed Scholarship, some company’s may also have a matching fund option. While our club has been giving scholarships to local students for the past 25 years we have never endowed a scholarship. It was decided at our annual meeting last year to take the step in accomplishing this task. It took some effort for us to get all the pieces in place but we are proud to say that we have worked with the Texas A&M Foundation in order to make this an easy process. www.wcamc.com/endow/
It has been a good year, the board continues to work hard to provide activities for our members to gather and socialize with Aggies. Our primary goal is to provide a location for Aggies to come together, Muster, Fish Fry, watch parties, etc. Please feel free to reach out and let us know what we can do to make the A&M Club even better and continue to meet the needs of our growning A&M Club. It has been a pleasure to serve as your Club President and I will look forward to seeing many of you in the coming year.
 
Have a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, may you and your family continue to be blessed.
 

Gig’Em,

David A. Johnson ’87
President, WCAMC

Howdy Ags,
The cooler weather is upon us, unfortunately, as in years past, it as also cooled the momentum of Aggie football. However, ‘True to each other as Aggies can be’, We have always been and will continue to be more than just about football. The Maroon line runs deep and we will stand behind our boy’s through good and bad, just a little more challenging some time more than others.
The Aggie soccer team has done another terrific job this year and will continue to have an extended season. Congratulations to coach ‘G’ and the entire team as they press forward toward a run at a National Title.
Don’t forget we continue to have our Reveille Breakfast (1st Thursday), Double Dave’s Pizza Night (next week, 2nd Thursday) and Networking Luncheon (3rd Thursday). We will resume our Howdy Hour’s in January after the watch party season. All of our events are FREE and open to all Aggies, so be sure to come check us out and find a place to plug in with other Aggies.
Moving on we have several events coming up as we wrap up the year. Be sure to check all the events below. The Williamson County Aggie Moms were forced to reschedule their First Annual Golf Tournament due to weather. But, it appears it have worked out well as Friday 10 November, is set to be a beautiful day. Not too late to register a team or come out as an individual on Friday and have a great time and support their scholarship efforts. https://birdeasepro.com/AggieMomsGolf
The SEC Club will have it’s Holiday Party and once again collect toys for local families. Be sure to save the date for Wednesday December 6th. More details to come soon. facebook.com/pg/AustinSECClub/events
We will also have the return of our own WCAMC Christmas Party hosted by Gumbo’s North – Georgetown. Details are being finalized and we will have registration on our website soon. Save the date as Saturday 9 December for that great event. facebook.com/events/1864309757191774
The new year is around the corner and we will kick off January with our Annual Membership meeting. We should have a date for that soon and will be sure to pass that along. If you are interested in getting involved with the club, now is a good time to reach out and let us know.
Have a great week and BTHO Auburn!

Howdy
We have entered ‘FALL’ and I am sure we’re all ready for the weather to change. Hard to believe that the football season ‘JUST STARTED” and already we are at the midpoint come this weekend. Six games in and the season will be half over after the ‘Bama’ game. That is hard to believe, certainly a case of ‘hurry up and wait’. It seems like it takes forever for the season to get here and then it flies by. The football team, while young, has certainly rebounded from their opening weekend heartache. A little growth each week and we continue to see small steps in a positive direction. Kyle Field should have a dynamic atmosphere this weekend with another night game. Everyone needs to be loud and support the team, ‘We have seen them win, seen them lose but e have never seen them quit’. Let’s be sure to support the team, regardless of the outcome.
Soccer and volleyball have begun conference play, while the volleyball team has had a rough go as of late, they are still exciting to watch. Be sure to put a match on your calendar if you happen to be in town. The soccer team is playing well and has had the SEC offensive player of the week, two weeks in a row. Congratulations to Ally Watt in the Aggies on a four-game winning streak.
The men’s golf team won a huge tournament over the weekend and may be on the road to making noise nationally. Long season so lets hope they continue to play well, stay healthy and keep it in the short grass.
To shift gears for a moment we have a big announcement. At our annual membership meeting in January, at the request of our club members, we decided to endow our first WCAMC Aggie Scholarship. While we have awarded scholarships from our club for over 25 years, we have never endowed an ongoing scholarship through the University. With overwhelming support from our club members, we began the process of doing just that. After much discussion and following the parameters of our own A&M Club Foundation and scholarship requirements, we are proud to announce that we have officially set up and are working to endow a scholarship with the Texas A&M Foundation! As a club, we will have 5 years to complete the fundraising of $25,000 to make this an ongoing scholarship recognizing our WilCo A&M Club. All donations are made directly to the TEXAS A&M FOUNDATION designated to our WCAMC fund. These donations are tax-deductible and many companies with ‘matching gift’ programs will be eligible as well. I am proud to say, that while this has just been established in the last few weeks, we are already 12% towards our final goal. If you had planned on making a contribution to the University, please consider this option as well. In addition, if you have not paid your annual club dues, we will also use funds from that source on an annual basis. You can donate online at www.txamfoundation.com/give.aspx. Choose “UNLISTED ACCOUNT” in the “I would like to give to” drop-down. Then type WCAMC #0407309 in the “Giving Account Name or Number” field. After that enter your donation amount and proceed with the personal and payment details required.

AGGIE MOM’S GOLF TOURNAMENT – RESCHEDULED.
Due to the recent weather, the WilCo Aggie Moms’ Club has rescheduled their golf tournament. Please find updated information here: https://birdeasepro.com/AggieMomsGolf

Don’t forget to check out our weekly event’s as well as our Hullabaloo Huddle watch parties being held on the patio at Buffalo Wild Wings in Georgetown.
