Big turnout for the first meeting of the year – Wednesday, April 26th. 24 people in attendance and we enjoyed a wonderful buffet prepared by the Cabin Greens kitchen. We also had menu ordering available. Ernie Luke won the evening's 50/50 drawing.
By now, we're all tired of the rain and are ready for nice weather – but, it is May, so who knows? George always worries about rain and the May cruise.
Our first cruise is set for Wednesday, May 17th. Set up starts at 2PM, so please help if you're available. The cruise official time is from 4 to 8PM. This being our first one of the season, they will probably show up early. We need to prepare goody bags, music, hot dog cart and supplies, door prizes and 50/50. For the first cruise, we also typically do a parking lot walk-through and clean up – sometimes a little of the hillside out back comes down.
With May being the new April, we might have the rain challenge. Remember our plan of recent years – rain on cruise day means a switch to the regular meeting at Cabin Greens dining room and then the cruise the following Wednesday, 4th Wednesday of the month, which is normally the meeting night (May 24th in this case). If we have rain, or a sure threat of rain on cruise day, I will cancel by noon and contact as many as I can. You can also contact me – my number is down below.
Ford City Summerfest will be Sunday, July 2, 2017. Time of day is not set yet. We've been asked to help with the gate and parking. Wearing your club orange shirt helps with that – makes it easier to direct people/cars to parkers with club shirts on.
The Walkchalk Salem Baptist Church cruise is Saturday, August 26th, 11AM to 3PM. We've been asked to help with childrens' activities and we'll probably be doing the DJing. At that event, parking is pretty much on your own and is very easy in a big field.
Please, if you've moved, changed your phone number or email address, let Bill Johnson know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 724-548-7435.

Second club meeting of the year – Wednesday, May 24th at Cabin Greens Golf Course. Dinner at 6PM, meeting at 7PM. See you there – please try to patronize the restaurant – the meeting room is free to the club.
