Club Elections
The Sandlapper Parrothead Club will hold elections in March. Nominations must be in before our February Meeting. Positions available are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. You must be a member in good standing and have been a member for six months prior to March 2004 to run for a position on the Board of Directors. If you are interested in running for one of these positions please contact the elections chairman, Ron Wike,  at ronwike@excite.com before the February meeting. The February meeting will be held at Patriots in Chester on February 10th.

Member Profile 
I知 Nickie George I have lived in Rock Hill most of my life. I did have a short stay in Fort Mill after my separation. Which tell you that I知 divorced now. I have two grown sons (if your children are ever grown). Chris is married and lives in Greenville SC and Andy who is not married and lives in Charlotte.
I have an accounting degree from USC and a MBA from Winthrop. I worked for Springs for thirty-three years, but my position was eliminated at the end of July. I知 currently looking for a new position and hope to stay in the area or move down to Charleston. I have a condo on Kiawah Island and was planning to move there in few years anyway, so Springs is giving me a chance to do it sooner.
Things people don稚 know about me: I知 Greek. Both sets of grand parents came over from Greece. I知 pretty handy around the house. I have an older home in Rock Hill that I have been working on for three years (I知 in no hurry). I enjoy doing much of the work myself. I have been a soccer referee for over fifteen years and have referred on the college level. I was named SC High School referee of the year in 2001. I still referee high school and select soccer. I read a lot and John McDonald is my favorite author. Most of his novels take place around the ocean and beaches. I知 also trying to learn to play the piano, which nobody will hear me play, but it does help keep the mind going.
I have always been a fan of Jimmy Buffett. More his life style, or appearance of life style, than his music. Larry Vaughn and Charlie got me involved in the SLPH club about two years ago. My favorite song is 典he Pascagoula Run. I can see myself as the 田razy uncle in the red convertible.

Adopt a Highway
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, March 6th as we prepare to head back to Gold Hill Road to pick up trash for our Adopt a Highway commitment. We will meet in the parking lot of Knight's Castle (just off of Gold Hill Road east of I-77) at 10:30 AM. The more help we have...the less time it takes. Mary will have vests and gloves. Please come out and help!
