Season 11, Week 2
Ken Taylor Week
Hello everyone! I want to welcome you to week 2 of Beat Mike. Thursday Night Football was exciting. Both games of Monday Night Football were exciting to watch also. What a kickoff week! I did the standings and most of you did pretty well! Most of you got more than 10 picks correct. The highest number was 15 picks correct. I hope that Week 2 will be exciting as Week 1 was. Those of you that did not play in Week 1, it is not too late to join in the game!
Week 2 will be dedicated to a man that worked at Westfield State College and many other committees in the City of Westfield. He also helped form Pioneer Valley Chapter 8 of NAFCA in 1960. It was at his living room in Westfield where the chapter was formed. He was a charter member of the chapter. He would be PV8 Treasurer on and off for almost 40 years and he would help out at the Springfield RV Camping & Outdoor Show every year. The person that I am talking about is James Kenneth Taylor, or as most people knew him, Ken Taylor. We will all miss you Ken. To tell you the truth, if I got Orlando 183 (and I still want to) to become a NAFCA chapter, that I would offer him a lifetime membership in the chapter. If you want to join NAFCA, you can go to www.nafca.org. You do not have to be from New England to join. You do not have to be from North America to join. You can join no matter where you are in the world. For Ken's obit, you can go here: http://obits.masslive.com/obituaries/masslive/obituary.aspx?page=lifestory&pid=132572739.

1. Just to let you all know, if you did not play in Week 1, it is NOT too late to join in and play. The more people that play, the more competitive the game will be, especially when it comes to the playoffs.
2. Normally I would send the standings in a seperate e-mail, but for this week and any week that I send out the newsletter on a Tuesday, you will get the standings with the e-mail.
3. On September 26, BMN will sponsor the MIke's PALS walk team for the Walk Now for Autism walk at Stanley Park in Westfield. On October 18, there will be a walk at Suffolk Downs in Boston and November 14, there will be a walk in Altamonte Springs, FL. If you want to join any of these teams, please let me know.
Good Luck in Week 2!
