THE COMMODORE’S MENS’S
As the outgoing scribe, my final official act will
be a return to the glory days of hard hitting, cutting
edge journalism that the SPSC Newsletter was famous
for, before HE became scribe and inundated the membership
with fluff pieces and propaganda. Think Emile Zola,
think Woodward and Bernstein, and you will envision
the scope of the threat faced by us all.
In his younger days, Bob Graves found himself in the
idyllic Eden that was Shell Point and the utopian
society formed by the SPSC. He aspired to heights
that were beyond his grasp.
Returning decades later, because Bob moves kind of
slow, he had recast himself as DJ Bobby G to radicalize
the youth of the SPSC by providing subversive music
for our rhythmic ceremonial rituals.
Later as a Commodore of the SPSC, he began to assert
his hegemony, only to be ousted by D-Mac in righteous
feats of strength at Festivus. He retreated and licked
Recognizing the power of the press, he infiltrated
the SPSC board as scribe to pervert this bully pulpit
with his insidious propaganda.
If that were not enough, he began an anonymous campaign,
masquerading as Trebor Sevarg to sow dissent in the
Festoons Band, but
the great and powerful Swami saw through this farce
and Bob left the Band in shame.
an election replete with fraud, disinformation, and
sleaze, Bob was re-elected as commodore this year
to reap what he has sown. Knocking over a hippy, how
low can he sink?
Here are the sorts of venality the SPSC can expect
with the establishment of Bob’s Leon-Wakulla
State (BLWS), or BS for short
• We will continue to meet at Beef O’Bradys,
which spells BOB
• Bob’s dynastic ambitions and control
of the SPSC executive will be cemented by his brother
Chris as the vice-commodore
• Implementation of Bob Blah Law, in a direct
attack on the teachings of our Swami
• He will establish the BS Bobiphate, to be
called Bobswana or Boblivia
• The National Anthem will be SAIL
• Issuance of BS currency in the form of the
“BOBBER”, probably made from old beer
As my last act as 2014 scribe I felt a duty to expose
this corruption in our midst before I join Eric Snowden
Oh, I was re-elected scribe?...
I, for one, welcome our new nepotistic overlord.
Your Scribe, Bill

Christmas Party 2014
Come one come all to the Marzuq Shrine Temple on 1805 North Monroe Street!!!! This is a members and guest only event, so I you haven’t paid your dues, you can do so at the party or on-line via PayPal. Bring a side dish and a be ready to party like its 1989! Doors open at 7:30.
When I first joined the club back in the mid nineties, I heard about the legendary parties the club would have, partying into the wee hours of the morning. Lately, I haven’t been a witness to any of that. I would like to encourage you to stay until at midnight this year. We are going to have the great Swami’s ode to Christmas around 8:30, at which time the party will kick into high gear. We want everyone to party responsibly, so please have a designated driver or imbibe moderately. For those that live far away, there are plenty of motels in the area.
After the event, we need to tidy the place up, so I would appreciate a few of you staying to help get it in shape. We have been fortunate, thanks to Lee Chapin, of getting this place year after year and wish to keep it.
The party is eighties themed, so if you still have clothes from that era that fit, wear them. We will have a VCR setup to show some great movies from that era and a DVD player to replay the video taken from the 1993 wind ceremony. Thou the video is from 1993, the eighties fashion and facial hair was still popular in Tallahassee!
See you at the party. If you have a favorite ‘80s dance song you would like to hear, please email the DJ at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hear yea, Hear yea, I, Robert Graves, soon to be your Imperial Commodore, challenge Mark Powell, outgoing Commodore and he of a current hip replacement, to a slalom sailboard race at Shell Point Beach the day of Festivus, December 21st. The first to lose twice goes home in shame. Does he have the courage to accept?
