Menace of the LASFS

November 26, 2009

Marty Cantor, Presiding

Karl Lembke, Scribe


Meeting 3772 was opened at 20:05:49

Special Orders of Business

Marty Cantor announced that Rob Holstock has been making slight progress, but the doctors are very happy, given that he had an E. coli infection and organ failure. He had a slight relapse yesterday, but he's getting better.

The Menace were read and accepted as “let's build a castle on the moon.”

Patron Saint

Frank Gasperik

Marty Cantor said of him, he was a nice guy who was a bit bothersome to some people. (He did not mention that Frank was very bothersome to many more people.) He was a very good friend of Poul Anderson, Larry Niven, Jerry Pournelle. He has been written into a lot of Niven and Pournelle stories.

Hare: When he was at the landing of the second space shuttle. He was in the back of his station wagon trying to sleep, and he heard the ballad of Apollo 13, being sung by Frank. He was playing the troubadour. He was always willing to pull out his guitar and entertain.

Dale: He did a lot of editing.

Marty Cantor: He was living with Peggy Corrigan, and did not outlive her by very long.

CLJII: Frank was the sieve of LASFS. Strangers who managed to get past him were worthy of getting into the club.

Christian: The Tuckerization of Frank in Footfall was his favorite.

Jerry: Frank had a way of taking over a novel.

Frank Gasperik was given three cheers, and a song.
