Club Activities

BOCK publishes an electronic newsletter weekly. The newsletter, which updates club members about club activities, is emailed to them Tuesday morning.

Those attending arrive at about 5:30 p.m. EST, order food by 6:00 p.m., and chat until 6:30 p.m. at which time the book discussion starts.

If interested show up or use the Contact link in the webpage header to ask for additional details.

In 2022, there were two general fundraisers.

The first was with the Kalamazoo Growlers. The Growlers are a baseball team in the Northwoods League. Incidentally, they were the league champs in 2022. At 16 home games, we welcomed and assisted fans as they entered the stadium. BOCK earned $1,800.

The other was at Western Michigan University sporting events. BOCK members were ushers at football, hockey, and basketball games. We ushered at all six home football games, plan to usher at all home hockey games, and through 2022 ushered at one home basketball game. By the end of February 2023 the club should earn $3,000.
