for the sad part of the day. All of you that shot today heard the
announcement about Oregonian's daughter. For those of you who were not able to
attend here is the run down in a nut shell.
daughter Lisa Gander is in the hospital with a very serious illness. To
make matters worse her health insurance had not taken affect when she was
diagnosed and hospitalized on October 30th so she is responsible for all of her
hospital and doctor bills. As of today she is still in the hospital. John
Gander (Oregonian) and his lovely wife are having to deplete their savings to
help pay for all these bills. Rumor has it that the bank has taken her car away
and is threatening to foreclose on her home.
behalf of the Oregon Old West Shooting Society we decided to donate ALL of
today's match fees to John and his family. Many other thoughtful shooters at
the match also stepped up and chipped in with what they could afford. Thank you
all so very much. As I am writing this letter we have a grand total of
$1,033.00 to give to Oregonian. I know this is a long way from what they need
but it's a start. If you can give in any way possible I'm sure they would
greatly appreciate it. This is why I LOVE SASS/CAS because of what kind of
people this sport brings in. Through the love and support of our extended
family we will get them through this. Our thoughts and prayers are with Lisa,
Oregonian, and their family at this time of need. So please, if you can help
out in any way possible please do.
donations can be made at any Washington Mutual bank in Lisa Gander's name. Or

she has is called Hashimoto's Encephalopathy. Oregonian's daughter Lisa is the
13th person in the United States to come in contact with this terrible and rare
disease. They don't know how she came in contact with it. For more information

all for your kindness and support in this matter. In light of this I hope you
all have a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
