Commodore's Corner - December 2009
And now it’s time to say goodbye to all responsibility.
It’s been great serving as Commodore to the SPSC club. The
talent, skill and dedication by members to get things done amazed
me. Thankfully Wright continued to push forward on getting the
trailer done and it’s almost there; should be ready for
this coming summer training session. Deb has done great things
with the website, allowing me to make changes to the members’
database and upload pictures to the central site. Many of you
helped with lessons, but of special note are Tina and Bill, who
seemed to be there most every time. A special thanks to Linda
who not only let us store the training equipment at her house
on the small trailer, but is also letting us build the larger
trailer on her property as well. There are many others that have
helped me tremendously, too many to list here, but I do indeed
Christmas party was great. Good food, good people, incredible
music! Welcome to our new members who were there, Eberhardt, Suzy,
Kevin, and Sharon.
However, after seeing the superb job Donna did on the Christmas
party, I know the club will be in great hands. Enough of the nice
stuff; for those who don’t know, Donna claims she is going
to kick my butt during the feats of strength at this year’s
Festivus. She has it in writing on the message board. Come down
on the 20th at 3pm and see for yourself. No way.
In Conclusion, I’m concluded,
I worried and fretted all year about the Christmas Party. Folks
told me - don't worry everything will work out and be just fine.
That's because SPSC members come together to do whatever it takes
to make sure our events are very well prepared!
Many thanks to everyone who came to the Marzuq Temple to help
set up and to those who stayed to help break everything down at
the end of the evening. Chris, Tina, Bob, Sandy, Bill, Lee, Leah,
Ann, Linda, Mark, Olga, Amy, Dave, Lizzie, Adam, Scott, Julea,
Eb and Suzy. Thanks to Lee for the one-on-one Bloody Mary mixing
lesson Saturday morning, but mostly for being a member of the
Shriner’s Club! The venue was terrific and we couldn't have
done it without you.
Thanks to Chris for the awesome Tiki Bar setup. Be prepared Chris,
rumor has it that Bill O will be expecting a Tiki Bar for next
Our usual bartenders could not make the party this year but drinks
were mixed, wine was poured and beers were opened because the
Huzztenders were on the scene. They jumped right in and took charge,
thank goodness. Thanks to Leah, Lizzie, Sandy, Judy and Janice
for helping us out in a pinch! Thanks to everyone for bringing
some truly delicious dishes to share! We sure do have some fine
cooks in our club.
Thanks also to Dave and Jack for their contribution to our entertainment.
What an expertly choreographed “special” rendition
of the belly dance, tassels and all . . .
Special thanks to DJ Bobby G. The tunes went on, and on, and
on, until the passage of time (which went by way too fast) that
forced us to stop and clean the place up.
Again, thanks to everyone for doing your part to make the Christmas
Party a success! Looking forward to being your Commodore in 2010!
