Wow! I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted anything here. Well, as they say, the buck stops here. I could claim an excuse of real life keeping me busy (and it has), but that doesn’t mean I can ignore you, the hardworking crew of the USS Kelly. So… here’s what’s up.
As shown in our last post, we had a great time at the 2021 Fleet Games in August.
September 1st was the USS Kelly’s 35th birthday. We had a small gathering in a park on Labor Day weekend, showcasing the history of the club over the past three-plus decades. As you can imagine, it was sparsely attended, but those who were there had fun.
In October, our fearless XO lead the crew through a corn maze. I regret that due to work schedules, I was not able to be there at the time.
Our November activity is THIS COMING SATURDAY, November 13th. It will be held at 6:00 pm at the Fiiz located on 4700 South just west of I-215.
This will be the USS Kelly Auction, as well as a food drive and a bake sale to raise money for the club and for the Utah Food Bank. The Kelly Auction has been a near-yearly tradition, and raises operating funds for the club. It is by using these funds that we were able to get our new, gorgeous USS Kelly t-shirts in time for Fleet Day. It also helped subsidize the Kelly Kampout and pays for things like our ownership of the website usskelly.com and our Zoom subscription. All of these things are done for the use of the crew, so please come and see all the Star Trek (and other pop culture) goodies we have available, just in time for your Holiday shopping!
There will be no Kelly Activity in December, as that is prime time for family gatherings.
Our first activity in 2022 will be the annual Admiral’s Banquet, held January 22, 2022. This will be hosted by the USS Rendezvous.
