FIRST - we want to thank our Sponsors and everyone who came out to shoot. Thank You!
The Wichita Club continued the Luncheon Speaker Series, conducted a Sporting Clay Shoot fundraising event, hosted a succulent planting night, and visited the Kansas Oil Museum in ElDorado.
Members take turns opening a Christmas ornament or stealing/trading from someone else. Lots of ooh's and aah's and everyone leaves with an ornament.
After the 2020 and 2021 ADDC Annual Conventions were canceled, the Wichita Club donated funds that had been set aside for Registration and Expenses, to four local non-profit organizations that work very hard to make a better world for Veterans who need assistance to get back into work or to acquire more education, to the Kansas Oil Museum that displays everything from actual 100 year old buildings brought in from the historic Boom Town, a functioning Cable Tool Rig and also interactive memorials to the early leaders who discovered and developed the ElDorado Oil Field, and also to a children's organization that provides support for young people who have suffered the loss of one or both parents.

The Wichita Club's August Educational Meeting was a field trip to the Kansas Oil Museum in ElDorado, Kansas. This museum has an amazing array of original functioning oilfield equipment, a small downtown in "Boom Town" with offices, stores, and one room school house. We also visited a typical "Lease House" where families for the major oil companies lived. The collection on display is extensive both indoors and outdoors.
A "Yellow Light" was used to help workers see to drill after dark - even in early days there were 3 Tours working 24 hours a day.
Forty shooters registered for the 2019 shoot and came to enjoy a delicious lunch with grilled hamburgers courtesy of WW Drilling Company before shooting began. Generous sponsor contributions helped cover actual expenses, and volunteers provided home made side dishes. The 2019 fundraising effort brought nearly $2,500 to Desk and Derrick that will be used to purchase and distribute energy "friendly" educational materials for students in 4th to 6th grade classes.
Additionally, Desk and Derrick approved funding to pay for school "field trips" to the Kansas Oil Museum in ElDorado, where kids can spend time having fun and learning about the tremendous contributions Kansas and ElDorado have made to the energy industry.
