NEWSLETTER JULY 1972
From the editor:
Hi! This is the first newsletter from the
club, and now that things are under way I hope to be able to
bring you up to date and keep you informed on what SKOGIE is
doing. This first letter has been delayed by a number of
vacations, mainly mine, but also the group's. June 15th Rick
left on a trip to Europe, though Denny , Al, Mark, And Jim still rehearsed together, everybody took it easy. Rick was back by July 1st and since then things have really been happening. Hope to see you Sunday, July 30th at One Groveland, 19th and Nicollet ... and feel free to write us and let us know what's on your mind. This newsletter is for you, after all.
See you later, Marie.
***** Rick was gone for about three weeks in June and July when he travelled to Europe on a trip that was mostly for pleasure. Rick and his companions flew to London from New York. He saw a number of British groups which impressed him, but was most surprised by the clothes shops in the King's Road section of London. Rick says it's the best place he's ever seen to buy his clothes.
While Rick was in Europe, Denny, Al, Mark, and Jim took time for a few rehearsals, but mainly used that time for individual practising and enjoying the summer weather.
***** Mark celebrated the begining of summer by getting a pair of contact lenses installed to stop the beach bullies from kicking sand in his face. The Goldstein family is moving to a new home in mid-August, and patron Doc Goldstein promises an even better location for the boys' rehearsals, late night snacks, and righteous ride practices.
Skogie and the
continue to be the most popular band around, as
demonstrated by their heavy gig schedule since Rick's return
from Europe. Most of these have been "on the road", but the
band returns to Minneapolis on July 30th for a concert at One
Groveland, with a whole new show, new tunes, new arrangements,
and a fresh Teddy Bear.
See ya then!
