A Line from your President…

This was a busy November for the club. It started with 12 RVs attending the outing at Santee Lakes. Though we had great weather, and the facilities there were top notch, trout fishing was much slower than last year’s trip. Santee Lakes had just started their trout season that weekend, and we could see plenty of trout in the water, but they were just not biting.

The ladies enjoyed cards, sewing and LDO (Ladies Day Out) for lunch and shopping, and most of us had a great time celebrating Betty Allen’s birthday at Filipe’s Pizza in Santee. Monique and I were the Wagon Masters for this one. Look for more about this event, including the winners of the fish challenge in the Freshwater Report of this news letter.

A week after getting back from Santee, we enjoyed a fantastic meal and silent auction at the Fall Feast. Once again Fariba and Jimmy opened up their beautiful home for the event. Marge Lovelady did a great job over-seeing the Silent Auction, and Colleen Wilson did an awesome job showing off her organizing skills hosting the feast. As usual, the board members served the guests. During the event there was a pumpkin desert contest with some very tasty entries. Congratulations to Karen Kirchnavy for taking 1st place with a delicious pumpkin cheesecake.

Over 60 members just returned from the annual Viejas Casino bus trip. This is a big fund raiser for the club, since if we have enough members sign up for the bus trip, the cost is refunded to the club. A great time was had by all, but the visit resulted in no new millionaires in the club.

As I write this letter, our club members are assisting with the Annual Dixon Lake Trout Derby. Once again we are operating the weigh-in station and assisting with the kiddy ponds. Thank you to all who signed up to help with this event, and a big thank you to Hank Skaja for not only doing a great job signing people up for this event, but he also worked every shift during the event. As of Saturday morning a 10.4 lb. trout was leading the tournament.

For non-board members remember that there is no general meeting in December. Current board members and in-coming board members remember we will be meeting at 9:30 in our usual meeting room.

Monique and I would like to thank all the Board of Directors. Also Linda Perdue for Apparel, Marge Lovelady, for the Sunshine reports, Carol Parker for her photography and the chairman of the Picnics, Fall Feasts and Awards Banquet for their support this year. It has been an honor and a pleasure to serve this club as President, and I am looking forward to next year. We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.
