Saturday Nite Dinner/Dance

 This weeks Saturday Nite Dinner/Dance had a German Theme and we were rewarded with a fantastic Schnitzel Dinner with fries, mushroom gravy, cucumber salad and fresh green salad and fresh bread. It was a perfect meal, Stephen and our kitchen crew did a wonderful job.

How about this plate for dinner!

Kelvin our DJ provided some nice background dinner music and the got the dancing started when we were finished!

This coming Saturday is our 50's Themed Dinner Dance, with Burgers, Dogs, Root Beer Floats, Poodle Skirts, rolled up jeans and T-Shirts, come join in the fun for good food, Oldies Music and SOMETHING NEW - for you non-dancers there will Bingo going on all evening! For your safety information, we are limiting access to the clubhouse and social distancing tables and seating 4 people per table. Dinners are also available "To GO" for those who feel more comfortable in their rig. As the weather warms we will also provide outdoor dining. We ask that any one who has not felt good in the past 36 hours to refrain from attending our events.


Our pool/spa contractor came out this week to try and locate the leak and get the spa operational. Well we found the leak and it is fairly significant it is somewhere in the skimmer plumbing and will need to be located and repaired. Which means breaking through the concrete deck and locating the plumbing. They are working on an estimate to break up the deck and locate the main feed from the pump room to the spa and then check for leaks both ways, if the leak is between the spa and the pump room it will involve less deck destruction and a less expensive repair, if the leak is in the plumbing which surrounds the spa then it will involve a major spa rebuild and take more time and cost more. We are committed to getting the spa operational as soon as possible.
Since this was written in the Park Newsletter, one of our experienced pipefitter guests suggested we contact a company that can "Sleeve" pipes and fix leaks with minimal digging. They suggested we contact a leak detection company who can isolate the leak and identify exactly where the leak is and which pipe...So they will be here this week and hopefully help solve the mystery and provide a simpler less expensive solution. We will keep you informed!

Time to Rope a Steer!


It was time to make our life around here a little easier, so we roped a Steer a skid steer that is! Nice shiny lightly used BobCat Skid Steer arrived at 29 Palms RV Resort yesterday, what a way to end the year!

We have a ton of projects around the park where this machine will be a huge help.
Remove the dirt from the horseshoe pit yard and fill along the outside of the wall on Amboy where the ground is shrinking?
Move gravel and level sites and gravel behind the cottages.
Work on the burn pile.
No more digging trenches for water pipes etc...the trencher is a huge help.

Trencher attached!

Trencher at work!

Rob - Puttin it to work!

Out with the old!

Spa and Pool Update!

The new wall is being built on the entrance to the Spa room!

New Door installed!

Steel grates will allow ventilation in the Spa Room!

All the new pool furniture is here and being assembled and will be in the pool area shortly. Pool is operational, hopefully the sun will be out for a while so the solar heat kicks in, we are supplementing with propane heat to help it along a little. The Spa people are due out after the holidays to help us find the leak so we can get it operational, in the meantime we will be finishing the walls.

Soon after Santa arrived our wonderful kitchen crew were out getting turkeys and ham ready for dinner. A couple deep fried and a roasted Turkey and a nice ham all prepared for a 2:00 PM dinner in the clubhouse, with our guests supplying all the sides and boy did they. Never ceases to amaze me how much food ends up on the buffet line.

We had a joyous crowd of about 38 people or so who enjoyed a wonderful buffett dinner with plenty of left-overs to take home for a late snack or another dinner.

Every side you could imagine - from green beans to dressing, mash potatoes, potato casserole, fresh rolls...


Plenty of desserts to enjoy!!

Now to get ready for New Years.

We always have a wonderful dinner/dance for New Years Eve...make sure you sign up and pay in the office. Prime Rib or Chicken Cordon Bleu, your choice. This is a wonderful sit-down served dinner with music by our favorite DJ well into the evening - we celebrate Chicago Time!

The primary construction and repair of the pool is complete. We are in the process of trying to raise the temp a little, but the cold weather and cloudy days are not helping...we are supplementing the solar a little with some propane heat to get to where the solar and sun will start to maintain the temperature, solar is new to us so we are learning as we go. Water and chemicals and filters are now working perfectly, so if you can stand the cooler temperature please enjoy the pool.

Right now the pool is open on a limited basis, daylight hours only and subject to closing for further construction, we will begin removing the sliding glass doors and replacing with solid walls and some metal art, as well as installing some large potted plants, we will also be painting or stuccoing the building at some point in time soon. New pool furniture is being ordered as we speak and the pool will become a highlight of the park.

Right now we are still sorting out a few problems with the SPA, but it is high on our list to complete as soon as we can.

Please comply with the following rules:
