Midwinter Convention-day one

The Lions 39W Midwinter Convention kicked off this evening at the Owyhee Plaza with fun and games, circus style.  The Parma Lions, serving as tail twisters, set up an amazing display of raffle prizes and silent auction items.  I know I'm going to be trying to win some of the Parma wine with my raffle tickets tomorrow!

Once again I didn't win the hors d' oeuvre contest, but I was happy that most of my spicy crackers were devoured, thanks to ID Lion Gary.  The contest winners were:

3rd place, Lion Irene Qualman, Riverside, Sweet and Spicy Meatballs

2nd place, Karen Bruner, Gem Lions, Pineapple Shrimp Dip

1st place, Lion Angie Qualman, Riverside, Bacon Wrapped Chicken

 That's a really big trophy!

Following some introductions, we heard a few remarks from Lion Ashley Seymour who is running for 2nd Vice District Governor and from ID Doug Lozier, our special guest this weekend.

Then on to some games-juggling, hula hoop, balloon animals, and balloon popping.

Lion Blake Rodgers and his wife, Sarah, traveled all the way from Declo to win the balloon popping.  Blake ran for the balloons and  Sarah sat on them.  Hope the lottery ticket is a winner!

See you in the morning for Day Two.........
