     ADDRESS OF ACCEPTANCE 100th Grand Nest Convention
                MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN
                     JULY 29, 2006

Past Most Loyal Gander Tim Seider, Current and Past Grand Nest Officers,
Ganders, Spouses and Guests:

It is with great pride that I accept the office of the Most Loyal Grand
Gander of the Honorable Order of the Blue Goose, International. It seems
like only yesterday I accepted the office of Grand Keeper.

I would not be here except for the support and dedication of my fellow ganders and the spouses
of the Virginia Pond. They are working hard to prepare a fantastic Grand Nest convention for
you next year in Colonial Williamsburg.

I also want to thank my family: My wife, Fiona, who has given me her love and support. And
my daughters, Jasmine and Michelle, who enjoy the conventions so much they ask where the
next one is being held before we’ve left the one we are attending! Jasmine even told me in
2000, she was going to Baltimore whether or not her mother and I were.

My friends, we are now embarking on our second century of the Blue Goose International. It is
amazing to think how this organization was founded. In 1956, Paul Rudd, Grand Nest Historian
and a Past Wielder, said the Blue Goose was founded on a cold, rainy day in 1906 as a joke to
help pass the time in fellowship with and in the company of good friends. Well fellow ganders,
the joke is on them, because here we are one hundred years later.

What they created that day to address a need is still valid today and we are reminded of it every
time we initiate a new gosling: Character, Charity, and Fellowship. Over the past one hundred
years, we have spread the word and initiated many great ganders. We want to continue to
promote this great organization and its outstanding members. The fate of the continued
existence of the Blue Goose lies within each of us. Next year the grand nest will have an
exhibit booth at the PLRB convention in Orlando. If you’re going to be there, please let me or
the Grand Wielder know. Not only will we be happy to catch up with you, but we could use
your wit and charm to help man the exhibit booth.

We are also joining the twenty-first century this year as the grand nest goes “live” on the
Internet for all pond wielders. Who said we’d be going the way of the dinosaur!! This is a
great step in the right direction as your pond wielders will have instant access to the information
about your ganders and will be able to send announcements, meeting notices, and other
important information to keep you up to date. And if you think your wielder is waddling a bit
slowly, tell him or her it’d be easier to fly than waddle and help them join the “V” formation by
assisting them in getting the pond converted.

It is said if you want to know what the Blue Goose is all about, attend a convention. I am sure
there are many of you who know what they mean by that. I found out when I attended my first
convention in San Diego in 1994. I was hooked. Then in 1996, I brought my “girlfriend” and
her daughter and by the next Grand Convention, we were attending as a family. Now there are
four of us, and we know what they mean when they say “you’ve got to go to a convention.” I
trust you will encourage your fellow ganders to find out for themselves as well.

The continuation of our conventions is an important piece of the traditions of the Honorable
Order of the Blue Goose. This year, we’ll be thinking out of the box to ensure that they do
continue. We will be looking into ways to allow ponds that want to host a convention to be able
to step forward sooner.

Finally, I would like to invite each of you to our Grand Nest Convention in Colonial
Williamsburg next year. The area is rich in history from the founding of Jamestown in 1607 to
Colonial Williamsburg and the battlefields of Yorktown. Next year is the Virginia Ponds’ one
hundredth year and we are looking forward to the convention.

Again, thank you for your faith in me. I will do my best for this honorable order and look
forward to seeing you in Virginia next year.

Keith H. Strohecker, MLGG

My Fellow Officers, PMLGGs, Ganders and guests.

It is with great honor and commitment that I have served you as the Most Loyal Grand
Gander of the Honorable Order of the Blue Goose, International during its Centennial
Year.
It has been a privilege and pleasure to serve this organization.

My journey as MLGG began in Connecticut in August of last year. I knew we had a lot of work to do, not only
to put together a convention, but also to solidify this organization and our membership.

Over the course of the year, I had the privilege and opportunity to visit a number of the Ponds and experience
first hand the fellowship and charity work of our members.

On September 22, 2005 I traveled to the Chicago area for the Greater Chicago Pond’s Fall Golf Outing. It was
a beautiful fall day for golf. Unfortunately, the attendance was low as a significant number of members were
called to Louisiana and the Southern coast to handle losses.

In late November, Terry Maloney and I headed to Detroit for the annual Detroit Christmas Party.
WOW, what a charity event. My thanks to the Michigan Pond for their hospitality.

The next week took me to the National Capital Pond’s John Brenner Annual Charity Luncheon. I want to thank
Barry Snyder and Bill Olson for arranging to have former Green Bay Packer Coach Mike Holmgren attend the
festivities. All the way from Seattle to Washington DC. Impressive! What a gentleman he was. Bill Olson, is
it true that he may be stopping in at Green Lake?
I was very impressed by the Michigan and National Capital’s commitment to one of our cardinal principles,
Charity. It was great to experience first hand the impressive charity work our members do.

December brought winter to the Midwest. On December 8th, I traveled back to Chicago for their annual
Industry Holiday Gala, held at the Historic Hotel Baker in St. Charles, IL.

What is normally a 2 hour drive turned into a 4 and one-half hour adventure. Bumper to bumper traffic in the
middle of a snow storm. Chicago in the winter – what is there not to like?

In March, the Grand Nest officers met in Williamsburg Virginia for the Mid-Year meeting
It was a day filled with discussion on the future of this organization. My thanks to Keith Strohecker and the
Virginia Pond for their generous hospitality and a little warmer weather.

March also took me back to Chicago to attend their Spring Dinner and Induction Ceremony. I was great to see
so many new members initiated into our Order. As we all know, new members are vitally important for our
organization.

As a result of our discussions in Williamsburg, I called a Special Meeting of the Grand Nest Officers. On April
4th, the officers met at the Chicago O’hare Airport to continue building on those discussions and chart a path
for this organizations future. Our meeting was very productive.

A few short weeks after the meeting in Chicago, my father passed away from cancer. At the same time my
wife was hospitalized with a blood clot in her lung.
Thank you to those of you who sent messages of condolence and support. The fellowship of our Order was
deeply appreciated at a difficult time in my life.

I apologize to those Ponds where I had to cancel plans to visit you. I appreciate the invitations to attend the
various functions throughout our organization. Unfortunately, it was impossible to visit all of you.

I am sure, as our Founding Fathers relaxed at the Oakwood Hotel on the banks of Green Lake, they never
thought that this organization would survive 100 years. For those of you traveling on to Green Lake after the
convention, you will have an opportunity to step back in time and experience the Birthplace of our order. And,
to toast our founding fathers.

It has been a labor of love to present this convention to you and we have some surprises for you this evening.
We hope you have enjoyed Milwaukee. The opening party, the “Streets of Old Milwaukee”

Anyone that has been involved in planning a convention, knows the time and effort it takes. My special thanks
to Terry Maloney for all of his hard work over the past five years. But Terry, I think we have spent way too
much time together. My wife wants me back.

Today, the Blue Goose is different than it was in 1906. But, the basic principles of our Order - character,
charity and fellowship - have stood the test of time and will continue to guide us into the future as we embark
upon the next 100 years.

Our Order is one steeped in tradition. It is based upon the core values that bind us together.

They have provided a foundation upon which our organization is built. And, will continue to provide that
foundation for many years to come.

We, as any organization, must continue to grow, we must change and adapt to the world around us.
But, always remembering the basic principles upon which The Honorable Order of the Blue Goose was
founded. This is especially true as we celebrate our 100th Anniversary.

Let us always “tote fare” in our daily lives and strive to inculcate character, charity and fellowship.

In closing and as we move into a new Century and chapter in our organizations history, may your zeal for our
cause never waiver;

may your sympathy with our interests ever grow deeper;

may the bonds forged by this “special centennial celebration” bind us ever more closely together - for the next
100 years.

Thank you for granting me this opportunity to serve you and lead this wonderful organization.
