Second Annual Super Bowl Paddle and Party
Harriet and Fritz Ingraham
Date: Sunday, February 6, 2005 - rain or shine, cold or warm
Paddle time and place: TO BE ANNOUNCED
Comments: You don't have to paddle to party. We MUST know if you are coming (how else will you know where we are paddling or how to get to our house)- contact by phone 928-4568 or email: click Harriet or click Fritz. Bring a dish for everyone to share and bring your drink of choice - remember to be a responsible alcohol beverage consumer - let someone else drive you home. We will provide either grilled chicken or hamburgers - yet to be decided. IF YOU WANT YOUR FOOD HOT, you guys must promise to go outside and talk to Fritz while he grills - he was left alone last year and missed most of the party. If you don't promise to go talk to him while he cooks - then he will cook before the paddle and we will have cold food. We will have 2 computers on with slide shows of various paddle trips of 2004. The Super Bowl will be on 2 TV's.
SPECIAL HALFTIME EVENT (better than last years TV event!!! - now if this doesn't get you here, nothing will). Directions to our home will be passed out at the next meeting, or I will be happy to email them to you, if you request.
At our January club meeting, we had about 46 members in the room including a couple dozen people new to the club. Some don't yet have a boat, but they came anyway. Let's take the time to show them the ropes. Sometimes a simple lesson can make paddling so much easier for a newcomer.
Thank you to Sue Walker and Dennis Holt for coming to our meeting and being on the program.
