FLASH-01: The USSVI National Election is now open

Bremerton Base Retrieves the Traveling Dolphins
Bremerton Base, with competition from the Seattle Base, showed up at the June 14th South Sound Base with 8 members and 1 guest to retrieve the Traveling Dolphins. All members got to tell a "true" sea story from their Navy experiences. They were Jim DeMott, Steve Corcoran, Hank Hollis, Bud Berg, Ralph Harris, Dutch Kaiser, Wayne Peterson and Red Bassler.
Western Region District 4 Commander John Mansfield, a South Sound Base member, was on hand to lead the competition. John is still searching for a relief, as he will need one if he does win the Western Region Director (an E-board Position) he is running for. Suggest you vote for John, as he will give the Northwest some clout at the national level.
Past National Commander and 2012 Election Master Pat Householder was also present and informed us about election procedures.
Base Member goes on Eternal Patrol
Life and Holland Club member Denny Davenport went on eternal patrol on June 11, 2012 in Longmont, CO. Denny served in Spinax, Sand Lance, Segundo and Sculpin. Denny retired in 1983 as an RM1(SS). Sailor, rest your oar!

2012 Fireworks (See Watch Bill)
WE NEED YOUR HELP - SEVERAL SLOTS STILL OPEN
The fire works stand will be located at its traditional spot in front of the QFC on Kitsap Way in Bremerton.
Base Fireworks Sales Manager Mike Sullivan suggests that we join the TNT club to help the base make the most out of our hard work, selling fireworks. No matter whether you work the sale or buy fireworks, or not participate, you can still help. Join the TNT Club on-line. Besides their literature you will be sent a $10 discount certificate by snail mail and also one by e-mail for purchases totaling over $50. If you do not use them, turn both of them over to Mike and he will ensure that those credits are made to people that are buying at the fireworks stand, and it will not effect our bottom line, but will be used to encourage buyers to purchase over the $50 mark. Go to TNT Fireworks and sign up. The fireworks sale is our primary money maker that supports base functions and our charitable donations, like scholarships. Help Please!
