Do you guys remember the Bar B Q's every Saturday and Sunday up and down the coast of California... Ventura, Santa Barbra, Pismo and North... In Bakersfield?
Bob Dean and I got to reminiscing about that. Guess what? Bobby used to do that Bar B Q thing with tri-tip for his company picnic every year (100 people)... He even has the deluxe smoker with the automatic wood feed to give optimum smoke.... I said, "That would be a real money maker for the Social Club Treasury". Bobby agreed.
In fact, Bob did more than agree. He purchased two tri-tips and smoked them in front of his garage. It took about 3 hours to do them both. I can only imagine the agony that brought his neighbors. So, you think you are a bar b q champ? Or maybe you would like to see a master prepare and smoke this wonder? Bob is going to have a trial run on this operation this summer... He is going to need help... Or maybe you can show him how it is really done? Regardless, this may become a bimonthly event if you support it.
I did my part ... Bob asked me to try a tritip sandwich from the latest bunch... It would make a cannibal out of the most dedicated vegetarian... He cut it in half so I could share it with Jacky... It never made it home...brrrp!
Fair warning... he intends to smoke the meat on the clubhouse patio and.....put a fan behind it so the smoke will blow over the entire community... If you don't buy a sandwich you will just have to suffer.
Thought you would like to know.... In a previous post we appealed to you for help ... Asked for some to come forward and help folks that can't change a light bulb anymore and other small chores ... Small tasks but just beyond physical capabilities... Remember? Larry Henson made an appeal through me? Well 3 did come forward ... Same old 3... Could have told you before who they would be.... We have approximately 265 residents.. About 65 are elderly single ladies. If you should experience a change of heart please let Larry Henson (manager) know you will help when you can.
Gloria Mazzeo donated a TV to the clubhouse. It's a beauty. Very Large and clear. It has been hooked up and the VCR and TV channels work like a champ. However, the DVD does not work at this time... We are working on it. The system also has surround sound which is not hooked up...working on it...Thank you Gloria for your generosity... I'm sure there will be many good times and fun ahead for the park.
This TV was extremely heavy and so was the old one. Both were moved by the 5 men in the park who we count on to help with so many things and most of you never know just who they are. You see the new item in place and start using it without thinking much about who the people were behind the scenes. They never ask for kudos from the rest of us and would probably be embarrassed to receive them but, it is fitting that you all know who they are and thank them the next time you see them in passing.... By then they will have done another couple of projects that you may never hear about I'm sure. Our community is blessed to have Wayne Hill, Wayde Dudley, Bill Furgason, Frank Stout and Jim Rose. They are our treasure.... Praise them a lot.
Bobby Dean is already thinking about the Sports night at the clubhouse... Guys gather your beer and we will be making hot dogs and chips. Maybe even peanuts to shuck and throw on the floor....
Jacky Thomas is thinking Chick Flick night..... in full surround sound...
I would like to see Tom Cruise in Top Gun fly off the carrier in surround sound... a guy movie.
John Spangler is excited about the many videos the Fishing Club has that they can now watch at meetings.
Phun! Phun! Coming to a clubhouse near you soon.
Project needed to make this even better. Industrial strength casters to move this big boy around. Anybody up for that?
