Rummage Sale is Saturday!


Our rummage sale is THIS SATURDAY, July 26th from 7:00 am to Noon.  Location is 1200 Range View Circle in the Fox Meadow Subdivision off Minnesota St.

We will be setting up and pricing items Thursday and Friday from 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm.  WE REALLY NEED SOME HELP WITH THIS. Even if you can only be there for an hour or so, it's a big help!

We will also need help with tear down/clean up after Noon on Saturday.  The Salvation Army is coming to pick up whatever we don't sell, so it will need to be boxed up; we will also have to put all the tables away.  Again, we REALLY need some help here; Stevie has a big radio event she has to be at that afternoon, so she cannot stay for clean-up.

If you have items to donate, please let Stevie know at 430-5482 or just stop by the rummage sale location and drop them off.

Join or Renew

If you haven't already renewed your membership, or have never been a member but would like to sign up, you may do so at our next meeting.  Don't forget--you can also pay with your credit/debit card at meetings!

Next Meeting

Our next general meeting is August 24th, 5pm at the Rushmore Media studios, 660 Flormann St.  (Behind the Safeway on Mt. Rushmore Rd.)  We'll be talking about some of our upcoming fundraisers for the season, and (hopefully) what the Rush office would like to see us focus on.  We'll send out more details as we get closer to our meeting date.


Comings and Goings
So far, the Rush have re-signed Winston Day Chief, Justin Sawyer, Jared Brown, Justin Faryna, Scott Brannon, Brett Kostolansky and Sean Erickson.  We also have one "newbie" to announce--the Rush have signed defenseman Brandon Martell from the Kalamazoo Wings in the ECHL.

The Rush have also brought back goalie Wayne Savage, who joined the team late last season.  This may bring about an interesting showdown between two of the best goalies in the CHL.  Because we not only have Tim Boron, who had the best GAA in the league last season, but we also have Danny Battochio, who has returned from his year in Russia.  Sadly, we can't sign them both.  It will be interesting to see how it plays out.  Regardless of who we sign, the other would be sorely missed--and someone we definitely wouldn't want to play against!

Forward Kyle Stroh has signed with the Florida Everblades in the ECHL.  His presence on our front line will be missed, but the Everblades are affiliated with both the NHL's Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning, so who knows--maybe we'll see him on the NHL network someday, and we'll be able to say we knew him when!

Year-End Party & Boosty Awards

RushCrew, it's that time of year where we need to start coming up with the 2014 Boosty Award Categories for the year end party. Please send ideas for award categories to The Boosty Awards are fun little awards that can be for on or off ice performance, like the 2012 Boosty "Mr Mayor Award" to Riley Weselowski, because if he ran for office in Rapid City, he would probably win.  The year end party for members is scheduled for this Saturday at 2 pm at Moonshiners.  If you aren't a member - this is a good time to join!
