This year’s picnic was again held at the Rattlesnake day use area at Bartlett Lake. Everyone hauled their chairs and coolers down the steps to the three covered picnic tables. There was plenty of food for all; appetizers, salads and lots of desserts and of course BBQ’d Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. This year featured buns for the Dogs and Burgers! There was plenty of room for everyone to set up their chairs and have a great visit in the beautiful weather. We had a total of 42 people attend this year; 38 members, 2 guests and 1 applicant couple.

After a 3 year hiatus, starting with Covid-19, the annual party was held in the Boen’s backyard.  This year we had a Jimmy Buffett theme with complimentary margaritas.  We don’t have a totally accurate count but it was in the neighborhood of 128.  A great crowd of good people, good drinks,  and more food than we knew what to do with, and a lot of fun renewing old friendships.  This party is for all car people, not just one particular club, The Over The Hill Gang was very well represented as well as members of the Dipsticks from Sun City West.

Thanks to everyone who attended and thanks to all those who brought so much delicious food.  Maybe it will happen again next year (no promises).

The Over the Hill Gang-Phoenix Putt to Saguaro Lake on Saturday, the 21st of October, had a great turn-out with 42 attendees including invited guests who were prior active members of the Club. It was a perfect day for a drive starting at our meeting place in Fountain Hills, which was only a 15-minute drive to the Saguaro Lake Marina and ShipRock Restaurant, and it took us through a scenic route through our beautiful desert. The weather could not have been more perfect for this fun outing. The restaurant staff made our breakfast enjoyable with great service
and good food. Everyone seemed to have a relaxing time enjoying each other’s company and the beautiful venue at the lake. Bob and I thank all who attended to make this putt successful and very enjoyable. ~ Betty
