This was our 15th year, and we looked back at why the club was started in order to focus on where we're going," said Kregg Conder, junior from Abilene and president of Kinsmen. "Club was originally started for a group of guys to get together to have fun while maintaining Christ as the center," Kregg said. In looking back at the years, the officers, and club in general. made a rededication to the original purpose, Kregg said. "We tried to do some things that had been done in the past to achieve unity such as the San Angelo football relay and club night at the movie," Kregg said. The football relay was an unusual event that involved members of the club running with the game ball for a minimum of a mile each and then handing it to the next man who ran it to the next, with the handoffs continuing the 90 miles to San Angelo for the ACU-Angelo State game. Kregg said that movie night was where the guys in club would get together to go see a movie a couple of times a month. "We also had a Phi Slammajamma patty to root Houston on even though it didn't help them much," Kregg said, "and we continued our tradition of kilt parties for the guys that got engaged. Basically we just tried to do more things together." One project the club was involved in once a month dur- ing the spring semester was doing the Sunday services at the Truby Church of Christ near Anson, The men did everythin from the opening prayer, serving communion, leading sing ing and teaching class to preaching both Sunday service: Kregg said. L'The officers decided that we wanted to do project like this so we looked for a place to do it," he said. Kinsmen had a closeness about it that was unique ani refreshing. "One of the guys this semester had a car acciden and as soon as the other guys found out about it they wer up at the hospital at one in the morning to sit and wait, Kregg said. "It's important to me to know that if I ever ge in trouble the club will be there to support me." Kregg said although the club did not win an award ii Sing Song this year, it was a personal victory. "I was overly proud of our performance because we wen one of the smallest groups there and by Saturday night w- were performing a good show. A lot of old members woult come backstage and support us or wish us luck, and that wa a neat feeling," he said. The annual spring social was in Granbury atjohn and jan na Dutys Carmichael Inn. The "Old South" theme was com plete with dates in hooped dresses and invitations hand delivered by men on horseback. Kregg said that being president was work but "well wortl it. It teaches you responsibility, and I'm looking forward tc another term next year because the people in club are wha' make it worthwhile." And, he said, "not just the people ir Kinsmen - I have friends in other clubs that make it fun too." --jonathan Gibbs
