Al Karniski was hospitalized over the weekend with double pneumonia and God knows what else. He’s a Mercy Hospital (formerly known as St. John’s Mercy) on Ballas near 40 and 270. Al has been feeling like crap for about 10 days. That crap turned into double pneumonia.
The 33rd Annual Glutton Mud Volleyball Tournament was a rousing success at every level. Perfect weather greeted 60 teams as they volleyed for the prized pig trophies and the right to call themselves champions!
Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who volunteered to help put on another successful tournament. Also thanks to the sponsors that supported the tournament and to the people who donated items for the Silent Auction. Thank you!
We’re sad to report that ‘Momma’ McGurie passed away on Sunday, June 11, 2017, after a brief illness.
Mom McGuire was the Mother of founding members Dan and Don McGuire. As the name “Momma” McGuire indicates, she was, in many ways, a second Mother to us all. She was made an Honorary Member of the Gluttons in 1971.
A simple private funeral will be held on Thursday, June 15, with a Celebration of Life to follow at the Gluttons Club from 4 to 8 pm on Thursday.
Got the sad news today that Elenore ‘Momma’ McGurie is going under hospice care. She has undergone surgery on her kidneys a couple of times recently but it apparently isn’t working. She has other non-treatable problems and the outlook isn’t good.
Momma McGuire, 91, has been an honorary member of the Gluttons since 1971. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire McGuire family.

A hearty group of partiers braved the icy and snowy streets to make it to the 52nd Annual Glutton Christmas Party and Awards Show. A good time was had by all! Here’s are three of the videos played at the party. Best viewed fullscreen.
Thanks to all who helped make the party a success. From the decorations to the technical difficulties crew to Jew and Jon for the program. … And especially to those who chose to come out and enjoy Glutton fellowship and party.
The 52nd Annual Glutton Christmas Party and Awards Show will take place this Saturday evening, December 17, 2016, at the Glutton Glub.
Doors open whenever you get there, you do have a key, so it’s ridiculous to have a “doors open” time. But we can say that dinner will be served at 7:00 pm. (You have no say in that.)
Another spectacular program will begin shortly after dinner. It will include awards for Athlete of the year (M & F), Odd Couple, Biggest Bullshitter, Mr. Glutton Award, and whatever Special Awards you want to present. We’ll also have a game with real prizes!
Don’t forget to bring a wrapped but unmarked White Elephant gift.
Cost is $10 per person. Contact Jonco (314-604-7750) or Byrd (314-578-2926) if you want to attend.
