This Saturday The Mountaineer's friends and family gathered for a surprise party for longtime employee Chuck Bruha. If you don't know Chuck he is the elder salesman of the team. He is recognizable by his pepper colored hair (ie. grey), moustache, eyeglass's and arms that have a mind of there own. Chuck has been at The Mountaineer for 25 years this year! Anyone who has worked in the outdoor retail business knows that that's impressive.
We managed to trick/lure him after work down to The Trail's Inn where many people were gathered for a big "SURPRISE!" Like with any party there was plenty eatin, drinkin, and laughin.
Gray grilling, Vinny blabbering and Pelkey doing quality control!
Vinny serving up the ribs...YUM!
Matt the human garbage disposal.
Then time came for a little "Roasting" of Chuck, stories, fan mail, and photos brought many laughs.
Vinny, George and Shirley reminiscing about Chuck.
A good sport that Chuck is...
Chuck ready for the next 25 Years!
