The Halsey Hall Chapter's Fall 2018 Meeting will be held Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the Faith Mennonite Church, 2720 E. 22nd Street in south Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Tink Larson will be our featured speaker. A longtime coach at many levels in Waseca, Tink is a legend in Minnesota amateur baseball. He may be joined by another Waseca native, Gene Glynn, who was a coach for several teams, including the Twins. Tink and Gene still share the record of 45 bases in a season for the Waseca Braves, and Tink has the team record for a 37-game hitting streak from 1968 to 1969. Nice. Gene was also the first Mr. Basketball in the state, in 1975.
Registration is at 8:30 a.m. with research presentations beginning at 9:00. If you are interested in presenting, please contact Howard Luloff. A business meeting will be held during lunch. The cost for the meeting and lunch is $10. The meeting only is $5. Those wanting lunch must RSVP to Howard, as well.
Members are invited to submit a proposal to make a research (oral or poster) presentation at the meeting. Proposals must be sent to Research Committee co-chairs Brenda Himrich or Sarah Johnson and include a title and brief outline of what the presentation will consist of with emphasis on the research that will be included. Standard oral presentations are 20 minutes (with an additional eight minutes for questions) although the duration may be longer or shorter depending on the needs of the presenter and of the schedule. The Research Committee (which also consists of Dan Levitt, Jim Cox, Doug Skipper, Stew Thornley, Rich Arpi, Dave Lande, Anders Koskinen, Gene Gomes, and Bob Tholkes) will finalize the schedule of research presentations by October 19, two weeks before the meeting, so proposals must be submitted by then.
Three presentations have already been approved (so hurry):
- Rich Arpi: 1890s Millers and Saints
- David Karpinski: This Lineup “Owned” Nolan Ryan
- Corky Gaskell: Making a 19th Century Base Ball
