Membership mixer guests also will not want to miss some of Rougeux’s side notes. Just a few of the jewels from a May 20, 2016 New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung article “15 Things You Didn’t Know about Natalie Rougeux” include:
* Although she served in the Navy, Rougeux is terrified of the ocean. “Things in there eat people.
* In 2012, Rougeux traded in six cats for a dog, going from being the “cat lady” to “one of those annoying dog people” who take her dog to work. She is not sure which is worse.
* Rougeux married her husband John in 1991. They eloped to the Heart of Reno Chapel in Reno, Nevada where the wedding cost $108, including the “limousine,” all of which Natalie won back at the tables.
