Rear Commodore's Report
Happy October, Club Members!
My favorite time of the year is here and we have the Halloween Party just
around the corner. Life is great! But first, let's catch you up on
On Sept. 2, Labor Day, club members enjoyed a beautiful day at the club
playing games, swimming, and just relaxing at our annual Labor Day
Potluck. Lots of great food for all, including entries in our BBQ Ribs and
Dessert competitions. This year, Jerry and Faye Black took home 1 st place
honors. They brought their "A" game and BBQ'd up a set of ribs the
judges loved! But it wasn't an easy choice - Wes Lockwood's "Bourbon
Ribs" and Chris Washack's "Just Ribs" gave them a real run for the prize!
In the Dessert competition, the Sellers won with an amazing Butterscotch
Cake. For you chocolate lovers, the Conrads brought a-mazing Chocolate
Cupcakes. On Friday, Sept. 9, the Lounge was jumping with lots of
members, established and new, and the sounds of Rob Romens on guitar.
Rob kept the crowd lively with rock, country, soul, pop and blues tunes
from the 60's to today. Shout out to the Lounge staff. It's an ABSOLUTE
pleasure to see the team rock it. Lots of great drink specials, special drinks
and smiles to add to the enjoyment of the evening. Looking forward to this
month's special concoctions, including Halloween!
And speaking of Halloween, have we got a party planned for you! As the
Party Lead, Jackie Chapman came up with the BEST Halloween theme.
We're going back to the '80's, y'all! That's right, pull out your
legwarmers, your Member's Only jackets, and your VHS movie collection--
we're taking it Old School and revisiting "Who Shot JR," "Where's the
Beef," and "I'll be Back!" Party will be in the Lounge on Saturday,
October 26 starting at 6 pm. Flash Flood is joining us for the retro
evening. Prizes for best costumes. Dinner will be available (but not
required) - menu will be announced later this month. Look for party
inspiration in this Letter Log - the flyer is righteous! For all our new
members -- this is the party NOT to be missed! Also coming up is our
Thanksgiving Day Orphans Potluck on Nov. 28 and the Polar Express
Boat Parade and Chili Cook-off on Wednesday, Dec. 18. More details
coming soon! Until then, see you around the club!
