SCCS.  November used to be our ho hum
fantastic gatherings in November which I
think will earn a place as annual SCCS
events.  Our usual Wednesday evening
meeting wasn’t usual at all (more about
that later).  And Tuesday November 25 a
bunch of SCCSers had fabulous fun
drawing free caricatures of donors at the
annual San Diego Chargers Blood Drive.  
They were: Joe Annino, Wardell Brown,
Arlington Cruz, Greg Evans, Koba, Tony
Magtantay, Greg Mullendore, Frank
Mitchell, Frank Mutasio, Joe Schmidt,
Joanne Stevens, John Tighe, Janet
Williams, John Wismont and yours truly.  

We also had the pleasure of meeting
football great Ralph Benirschke,  the
Charger whose tragedy was turned onto
the triumph that inspired the first Charger
Blood Drive 30 years ago.  

Since sports always seem to have stats
attached, here are ours:
15 = number of SCCS artists drawing
caricatures for the annual San Diego
Chargers Blood Drive
25 = average number of caricatures drawn
by each SCCS artist
375 = total number of caricatures drawn
by SCCS members
2 = number of donor-models who asked if
our own Joe Schmidt was once their
beloved art teacher from Hilltop High.
100 = number of people who mistook our
own Wardell Brown for LaDanian
Tomlinson (even though LT is not known
for being a sketch artist or for wearing
the jersey of another player).
6 = number of jelly donuts missing after
Greg Evans left the room
