The Mason Lions Club met Tuesday, May 18th, for its regular weekly luncheon meeting. There were 36 members and 2 visitors in attendance.
Lion Charles Reichenau was responsible for the program and introduced Jerry Baker of Hext who spoke about his adventure in Sheep Hunting and his subsequent completion of the Grand Slam in sheep hunting.
The Grand Slam consists of the Dall Sheep, the Stone Sheep, Big Horn and the Desert Bighorn Sheep. Jerry took the Dall Sheep in Alaska, the Stone and Bighorn in British Columbia and the Desert Bighorn in Van Horn, Texas.
Jerry showed a video of his hunt in Van Horn which took place in May 2007. The video was very interesting and Jerry got his ram which scored 176 1/8 B.C.
