The Debunking of President Ray
Friday evening, June 21, 2019, there was a special RCAS meeting – the Debunking of President Ray Noggle (or is it “Noogle“?). The event took place at Bayside Community Hall, and it was well-attended.
The first segment has our Master of Ceremonies – Past President Dustin Littlefield – explaining the purpose of the event, and encouraging President Ray to embrace his inner (and outer) Bigfoot!
Former RCAS President JOYC (the Justice Of Your Club) asked President Ray to identify words of increasing length containing a double-o, in honor of the typo on Ray’s badge, which identified him as “Ray Noogle“.
This part of the show features a blind tasting of some highly questionable potables, and a test of President Ray’s agility and stuffed animal kicking accuracy.
Among President Ray’s many thrills on this occasion included the traditional debunking serenade from Sunriser Dick Johnson. This time, the troubadour received help from Ray’s lovely and talented wife Holly MacDonell.
The song refers to President Ray’s tendency to roam the room, leading to his occasional disappearance from the videos in the Sunrise Spirit.
PART FIVE – The Conclusion
The debunking finale involves presenting now Past President Ray with his new badge and a group photo.
