BNO hits #183 with OLLIES!

Well they are removing BNO bob from figuring out the amount due for the FOOD bill since he messed that up, and sorry to say I also added up the scores incorrectly adding a high #9 at the end, Ollies hit a HIGH of 9.11. Sorry a human mistake by the LEADER!

#15 guys made it and we made everyone pay $40 each until Scully finally woke up and put in his share!

$265.00 for Second Harvest :)! That’s adding to our current balance of $242.00! New total is $507 in the Kitty!

MIDTOWN PUB and BNO hits # 179.

A ruff start to this place, we had our well planned visit almost thwarted by a slip up and the place cancelling us! We had our guys scout out our own tables. Turned out pretty GOOD!

Mid Town did a good job with their burger, SCORE #8.84, $178 added to second harvest, had two very lovely ladies learn of our quest, Sara and Dawn: Very easy on the eyes and……They each put in $10 bucks to Second Harvest: HOW ABOUT THAT~ They made up for the confusion at Mid Town.

Sara and Dawn told us of a new place too- in Windsor!

November it’s: The Green Lantern 11/17 at 6pm

Burger Night Out hits# #178 at DLUX

What a great time with #15 GUYS! FINAL SCORE: #9.33!!!!!!

WOW-WOW. $34/Guy and pretty Emma served us smiles and incredibly tender burgers.

The DLUX establishment moved up #8 spots to number three on the top #15 list.

J.D. Gardner /MGR. did not disappoint the BNO enthusiasts! Lots of good pictures, Kevin Pomeroy netted “the BIGGIE” wine bottle.

We hit $147 in the Second Harvest collections and now have $2,535 dollars for our calendar year donation. So Kool!

Thanks Fellas: Paul Tisdel (Did I spell that right????) took pictures and did the math scores, Page Buchanon also took pictures for us since I left my phone in the car and helped me count money! Thanks Guys!

NEXT MONTH AT MIDTOWN PUB IS A CAP OF ONLY #20 GUYS, I will send out alert again later this month!

Pretty Darn GREAT!

BNO goes to new heights @ Camp Trippalindee!

Stop # 177! Cool view, Thank you Tyler (D.O.S.)! HOWEVER: This place is a college hangout, we had paper plates, not so good service from staff, $32/guy, ketchup and mustard in packets, basically had to get out own beers at the bar. Burgers were disappointing….Way back in 2016 on May 5th we had a great time with #15 guys and a score of 8.86! Interesting we had the same number of guys #6 years later but a score of #6.83. The BNO Group deserved better!

The highs of the evening was celebrating Peter Balestracci birthday! 🎂And doing so at the Memorial Union with fun BNO Team members!🍻!

Guess the BNO Group has had some good luck with great places, great beer, and every once in a while we hit the bottom of a curve! Whats coming?????

DLUX is NUMBER #11 on our top #15 list and we were there in December of 2006 with a #9.08 score. Pressure is on! This Thursday. September 8th. at 6pm.

Second Harvest money continues to grow, having met our goal of $2022 dollars, we are sitting at $2,388 bucks!

Our Second Harvest guy Chris contacted me: We decided to keep the contribution to a calendar year and give in December, we get our match and are shooting for a bonus to qualify for Mike’s Miracle Minute and do the donation with “Share Your Holidays”. In December, We should invite John Stofflet our BNO interviewer from Channel #15?

September 9/8 DLUX, October 6th Midtown Pub, November 17th The Green Lantern and December 08th at Echo Tap and Grill!

Lots of anticipation

What a view
Our server Caleb was M.I. A.
Some Thirsty selfies

Burger Night Out #176 AT: North South

BIGGIE WINNER: Paul Bishop! Great service, fantastic brisket and burger although it fooled Glenn Schultz,

Get this………. CAN DO “Ken Super Manager and Justin the Big Wig Manager” slipped the BNO Boys a $100.00 donation! We netted a grand total of $265.00 that 7/28. What a cool thing they did!

Thank you Ken and North South!!!!! We hit our goal of $2,022. New amount is:

#2,268 bucks and Chris Z of Second Harvest says in September we can possible get a match of money already collected!🤩. 🏆.

#14 guys and a score of #8.65 made BNO stop:# 176 a big homerun!

Our Server “Okeve” did a fantastic job!

Next month is 8/18 downtown at Camp Triple Lindee! 6 pm

Bob Lucas had a #68th Birthday too!
Great outdoor night for Beer, Birthday, Burgers, and Lying!

Pete was shocked on his Brisket/Burger combo!

B.N.O. makes a splash with the #175 TH!

Of course we were at Blackhawk Country Club, marking our tenth consecutive year there!

#28 guys made history, BNO Bob had Chef Casey there at BCC make a “memorable CAKE” and $453.00 was collected for Second Harvest! Thank You Jeff B and Dan C for tabulating scores and figuring out the total bill: Not too shabby $30.00 per guy!

We have a new running total of $1,973 BNO Bucks and word from Chris Z. (our very own Second Harvest Contact) ~ that is a BNO member: He pays his dues $$$$$ on time Bob Lucas!!!!!!!

We Could/Can make a donation in September that can be matched.

TOTAL SCORE WAS #9.17 BEATING THEIR PREVIOUS YEARS TALLY OF #9.164 * One year ago! And such wonderful Customer Service from Our contact there: Kelly she’s a PRO!

Lot’s of high scores: We had two newbees, Paul Reckwerdt’s son: Sean from New York otherwise known as “Sparkle SHANAM” and Jim Adney’s had a contractor friend (John Benson) he could not pay his entire wages, so he said let me buy you a burger, beer and fries and allow you to network and get #27 referrals! *Smooth move JimO!

Another BNO yet this month at North South 7/28 6 pm!
