WCAMC Newsletter: Thur Pizza Night (3 locations to choose from)

September 13, 2017
Howdy Ags,
We have been able to enjoy a little fall weather in September which is a very pleasant surprise. Unfortunately that has been the only pleasant we have seen along with the start of football in Aggieland. I know many traveled to California for the season opener. Let’s just say the team showed some promise and we hope they can get back on that same track.

Moving on to other Aggie sports, the soccer team has started off with a very tough schedule but is playing well. As is the volleyball team, both squads have opened up with tough non-conference opponents in order to prepare for the grueling conference schedule.

We have several items this month so please be sure to check our website as well as our Facebook page (Fb.com/wcamc/events). If you have not yet signed up, you can also receive text reminders for all of our club events, just text 512-887-2247. During football season we have suspended our Howdy Hours, due to weekly gathering of the Hullabaloo Huddle Watch Parties. Thanks to Buffalo Wild Wings in Georgetown for hosting this event for us.

We will also kick off our third location for Pizza Night, held the second Thursday of each month. We will still have our original location in Round Rock, behind Rudy’s in addition to our Cedar Park location on Whitestone next to the train depot. We will also begin in Georgetown so there is sure to be a location near you and no excuse not to come join us.

We also have the opportunity to support the Aggie Mom’s with their inaugural golf tournament. Dust of your sticks and come support a great event. See details below.

Plenty of opportunities to get out and network with fellow Aggies and we certainly hope to see you at one of our events in the near future.

Gig’Em,

President, WCAMC

WILCO AGGIE MOMS GOLF TOURNAMENT
Fall will be here before you know it and the Williamson County Aggie Mom’s will be hosting their first annual Scholarship Golf Tournament.

Take the opportunity to support the Moms who do so much for the students in school. More information on the event can be found here:

Howdy Ags,
It’s hard to believe but the year is half OVER! Where does the time go? We are planning activities for the remainder of the year so be sure to check out the ‘UPCOMING’ schedule listed below. We continue to offer our weekly club events and look forward to seeing you at one in the near future. We do our best to keep you up to date of all the AGGIE activities in the area in the hopes that you find something that peek your interest.
I was on campus recently and there was plenty of activity with new student conferences and of course no shortage of construction around town. I had the opportunity to meet with a recent graduate and he asked ‘what was College Station like when I was in school?’ Hard to believe it has been 30 years as well celebrate my class reunion this fall. Certainly not the same place and I am continually amazed at how it continues to grow.

Howdy Ags,
The heat of SUMMER is upon us and we are half way through June. It has been very busy already and wanted to quickly highlight a few items.

While we do not have any official numbers as of yet we had another successful FISH FRY. If you want to share some feedback please plan on joining us Wednesday evening for a wrap up meeting (details below). We want to continue making this a great annual event and we appreciate any thoughts you may have. We did serve close to 1,100 plates of fish (in-house and to-go) and everyone seemed to enjoy catching up with old friends. If you can’t make it Wednesday plan on joining us for our weekly Thursday event, Network Luncheon at Tortuga Flats in Round Rock from 11:45-1pm.

Aggie athletics has seen an extension of season for several sports. Of course the softball team started things off with a trip to the College World Series. While they came up a littles short it was a great accomplishment to be included in the field. The men’s and women’s track team claimed a few individual National Championships and came up just short of the team title. As many of you know the Aggie Baseball team is headed to Omaha for the CWS as well. This is the first time in program history that both the softball and baseball team made it to the CWS in the same season. We want to wish all the Aggie programs the very best in the post season.

Howdy {FIRSTNAME}
As many of you know the push is on our annual FISH FRY. It is only a month away and we have been hard at work to make sure the 25th Anniversary of the event is a huge success. In order to make this happen we certainly need all hands on deck. I know many of you have probably already been contacted by our volunteer coordinator and/or are desert coordinator. If not and you would like to volunteer, please contact us at FishFry@wcamc.com or call/text 5128872247 and we will put you in touch with the correct person. We need to make sure that we have all the positions filled as it takes a large group to make Fish Fry the success that it’s grown to be.
We are also putting together items for our silent auction, if you have something to contribute for that please reach out and let us know. Please keep in mind that it can be an item or ‘services’. Last year, one of our members donated an ‘Estate Planning Package’ which was a huge success. In recent years we have also had members build unique items, such as a ‘Dixie Chicken’ Domino table as well as a custom bench.
Fish Fry is a great opportunity to support our WilCo A&M Foundation scholarship program, we were once again able to present 10 future Aggies with scholarships worth $40,000.00 at this year’s Muster. We would not be able to do that without the support of our club members as well as this annual event. Please make plans to attend and support our 25th annual FISH FRY on June 2nd, 2017.

We will once again have the very popular “Wheelbarrow of Booze” in our raffle. In order to make this another huge success we ask that you bring your favorite bottle of alcohol, 6/12 pack of beer or bottle of wine and add to our raffle item. This is a great way to make a donation and assist the scholarship program.  You can bring it to Fish Fry (before 5pm please) or contact us to arrange to get it to us prior to June 2nd.  FishFry@wcamc.com or call/text 5128872247

A new month is upon us and I know many are counting down the number of days until the end of school. I would like to start with a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to our Muster Committee, led by Abby Williford (committee chair).

In the event you have forgotten, it is tax time. You actually have until midnight Tuesday 18 April in order to get your taxes filed. I am sure all of our CPA friends will be glad when the dust settles from the annual turmoil.
The Aggie baseball team has done an amazing job of getting back on track. After starting conference play 0-5 they were able to sweep the bad guys in Tuscaloosa over the weekend and get right back in the race. The Softball team continues to terrorize the SEC and could be on the run to a national title. Over the weekend the men’s tennis team clinched the SEC conference title and the Equestrian team won its 12th National Championship. Good things continue to happen in Aggieland.
Muster is this Friday and while it is too late to RSVP for dinner please plan on joining us for our speaker and ceremony.  There will be a limited number of meals available at the door for $25.  wcamc.aggienetwork.com/muster

Howdy Ags,
Spring is here and it already feels like summer. The club has been busy planning events for the year, perhaps you have already received your annual mailer in your mailbow from the Association of Former Students. This years mailer is full of information, save the date cards for several events, annual membership renewal form, fish fry details as well as sponsorship information. Please take some time to look through the mailer. If you didn’t receive a mailer then it’s likely that your information is not up to date with The Association of Former Students, but you can view it online here. Now is also a great time to join or renew your annual club dues. You can do this at Muster, with the application sent in the mailer or online wcamc.aggienetwork.com/muster.
As we gear up for FISH FRY, we would like to take a moment to thank our title sponsors. Once again TEXAS CRUSHED STONE has stepped up to the challenge and continues to support our event. In addition, this year our second title sponsor is THE ALCOVE CANTINA. Thanks to Mr. Hall and his team as well as they have stepped up to the plate for several years in many capacities to make this a successful event. If you or your company would like to become a FISH FRY sponsor please contact us and we will share all the information. call/text 5128872247 or email GigEm@wcamc.com
Congratulations to the A&M Track & Field team on their Indoor National Championship. It was an amazing day with the men clinching the win with a record setting 4×400 relay. Also want to congratulate the women’s Swimming & Diving team with their back to back SEC Championship. In addition they finished with their best ever, 3rd place ranking at the NCAA National Championship. Things are on the rise in Aggieland. With any luck the adage of ‘rising tide raises all ships’ will begin to come to fruition.
As always, we look forward to seeing you at one or several of our club events. We welcome you to come try us out, if you are interested in something the club is not doing, please share your ideas. It would be a great way for you to get involved by helping us begin a new activity that you and others may be interested in. Young Aggie Alumni Group, Dominoes Tournament, the options are endless.
We welcome you to any and all of our events, dues are not mandatory to attend. Please remember your dues go to support club activities for its members in addition to our scholarship program. This year our club would like to endow its first WCAMC Scholarship, in recognition of 25 years of Fish Fry.

Howdy Ags,​​
Living in central Texas we can be sure spring is on the way.  80 degrees one day and 40 the next.  I was told when I first came to Texas, “If you don’t like the weather just wait 5 minutes, it’ll change”.
Plenty going on over in Aggieland as well.  The National Indoor Track Championships will be held in College Station this weekend.  A great opportunity to literally see some of the fastest individuals in the country in our own backyard.  Softball is off to a fantastic start, with any luck the baseball will make a few adjustments after their rough weekend in Houston against our former BIG XII opponents.  The women’s basketball team will once again make an appearance in the national tournament while we anxiously wait to see if the men will be invited to the NIT.  Plenty of talent but youth and inexperience caught up with Coach Kennedy and the team this year.
With spring brings the onset of planning for our club.  We have two big events on the near horizon, both of which gives all of our members the opportunity to get involved.
We begin next week with our first official Fish Fry committee meeting (see details below)  This is our scholarship fundraising event and we will celebrate 25 years of hosting a fantastic event.  Needless to say, there is something for everyone and you are invited to get in early by attending the committee meeting.  We can use fresh faces and new ideas to celebrate 25 great years and make sure this event is even more memorable than those of the past.
The following week we will have our Muster Committee meeting (details also below)  Our committee chair Abby has done a great job of getting things in place but we can certainly use some assistance.

Fish Fry Meeting

Our 25th annual Fish Fry is on the horizon.  We cannot make this event work without the amazing effort of our club members and volunteers.  The first meeting to begin working on the event has been set for March 13th @ 6:30PM.  The meeting will be held at the Georgetown Health Foundation Community Rooms (tx.ag/GHFCRooms).  Please mark the date/time on your calendar so that you can be sure and join us.  We will have additional details in the near future.

Muster Meeting

We all know the date (April 21st) and now it is time to put some finishing touches on Muster 2017.  While it is necessary to secure a venue early, we have already addressed that as well as our speaker for this year.  There is still plenty to do and we would appreciate you joining us at Mel’s in Georgetown on Monday  20 March at 8PM.  We will have a private room to meet but feel free to grab a bite prior to joining us.

2017 Scholarship Applications available

If you are aware of a Williamson County high school student that has been accepted for enrollment in the Fall of 2017, scholarship applications can now be found on our club website (wcamc.aggienetwork.com/scholarships).  The deadline for scholarship applications is 1 April ’17, at which time our scholarship committee will spend extensive time reviewing each application and selecting this year’s recipients.  We will recognize and award the scholarships on April 21st at our local Aggie Muster Ceremony.

Howdy Ags,​​
I want to thank everyone who came out for our annual membership meeting in January.  Thank you to Denise & Shuler Page ’75 and their staff at Gumbo’s North for providing the location.  We may have to look for a new spot next year as the group continues to grow.  Enjoyed seeing familiar faces as well as the crew of new attendees.  We had several first timers who joined us for the meeting, best of all they are looking forward to getting involved in other club activities.
I would like to thank the board for their continuing service, working to put together activities that allow us all to gather in an arena that best suits our personal needs, while supporting the fundraising of the Williams County A&M Foundation and its efforts to raise money for scholarships.
A special welcome (and a big thank you) to our newest board members, Michael Howell and Courtney Alcott, who will be serving two year terms as our at large representative board members.  If you are still interested in getting involved in some capacity with the club there are plenty of opportunities in the horizon,  Fish Fry committee will be kicking off soon as well as our Muster committee.  If you are interested in getting involved in any way please email us at GigEm@wcamc.com or call/text us at 512-887-2247.

WCAMC Endowed Scholarship

I would like to thank the members of our club who voted to work toward an ‘ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP’ to recognize our 25th Anniversary of providing scholarships to local students looking to attend A&M.  This will be the first endowed scholarship from our club and we look forward to funding it throughout the year.  We will work with the A&M Foundation to establish this scholarship and all donations will be tax deductible.
Thanks to the generosity of a few WCAMC members we had a few pledges to contribute $2,500.00 the night of the annual meeting, which means we are already 10% towards the necessary $25,000.00 needed for the endowment.  This will allow us to have a scholarship in perpetuity recognizing all the efforts over many decades for those that started and continue to work toward raising funds for future Aggies.
Please look for continued details on how you can contribute to this fund as we finalize the information with the A&M Foundation.

FISH FRY Meeting Scheduled

Our 25th annual Fish Fry is on the horizon.  We cannot make this event work without the amazing effort of our club members and volunteers.  The first meeting to begin working on the event has been set for March 13th @ 6:30PM.  The meeting will be held at the Georgetown Health Foundation Community Rooms (tx.ag/GHFCRooms).  Please mark the date/time on your calendar so that you can be sure and join us.  We will have additional details in the near future.
