It has been a very busy week at the Park this week, I apologize for not updating sooner, however the activities have kept me quite busy.

The week of Thanksgiving was a busy one, it started with out Monday activity meeting finalizing plans for the week and beyond. That was Monday at 4:00 pm - it was followed by Monday Night football with a great turnout, lots of conversation and some good football. The conversation was so intense that several missed the fact the game was over!

Wednesday evening happy hour was again a huge success with a good turn-out and more people throwing something on the grill and enjoying dinner in the clubhouse.

Thursday Thanksgiving Dinner was a great event, with plenty of turkey and all the fixins, including some ham, plenty of dressing and mashed potatoes, gravy and vegetables several kinds of salads and of course a couple versions of sweet potatoes. It was a large buffet and everyone left stuffed!

Here is an early picture of the buffet - much more food was added.

We had plenty of full tables and a great crowd!

I thought I would also share a wonderful sunrise I saw this week.

Stay tuned for more activities as they take place....

Update November 20th Happy Hour - A Five Table Night and a smoke detector Test!

The crowds are building as more and more of our Snowbirds return to escape the cold dark North Country! We had a great turn-out this past Wednesday and a celebration as one of our residents had a birthday to celebrate.

So cake and ice-cream was served and with all the candles on the cake out Smoke Detector got a good testing and it works!

Sure fire way to test a smoke detector is blow out 80 candles or so! Great Cake, great conversation!

The grill got fired up out back and we had quite a few take something out and cook their dinner!!

Stay tuned for more updates as the activities proceed this winter.

Meatloaf dinner with all the fixins tonight and a great Thanksgiving dinner planned for Thursday!!

November 13th - Happy Hour and Dinner

Amazing how the walk up to the Clubhouse for Wednesday Evening "Happy Hour" seems to generate a beautiful sunset! Gotta Love those California Desert Sunsets!

Just Another Reason to be in 29 Palms RV Resort for the Winter!

We had a nice turn-out for our regular Wednesday evening Happy Hour! Several new people arrived this week and it was great to see and visit our friends from previous winters and some new folks as well. Plenty of good conversation, fresh popcorn and a drink or two!

Soon the grill was fired up and those who chose to bring something for the grill, started cooking!

Meals were all cooked in short order and time to eat!

Everyone is excited about our planned Saturday Evening Feast...Frankie's Famous Swiss Steak dinner is on the agenda!

Make sure you make reservations and pay your fee in the office! We are expecting a great turn-out!

Stay tuned for more activities as more people arrive and the winter progresses. Plans call for a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner, some Monday night football, a huge Christmas and New Years celebration and of course our regular weekly activities! And don't forget Super Bowl Sunday!!

29 Palms RV Resort - The Winter Activities Begin!

The clubhouse opened with the first activities of the 2013-14 Winter Season, new Snowbirds are arriving daily so we expect the activity schedule to get busier and busier as the winter progresses.

Wednesday Night "Happy Hour" got off to a roaring start this past Wednesday. The premise is simple come to the Clubhouse with your favorite beverage and if you like, something to throw on the grill for dinner.

This past Wednesday on the walk to the Clubhouse I was rewarded with a wonderful desert sunset!

After some casual conversation and a few cocktails the grill was fired up and the food went on!!

Saturday night the clubhouse was again bustling with activity as we enjoyed the first group dinner of the season. It was spaghetti, a nice salad and garlic bread plus ice cream for dessert!! We had a good turn-out with about 24 people or so...

After dinner the dance floor got a work-out!! It always takes one couple to break the ice, so to speak!

A few words from the staff!

We would like to give a big thank you to Lori for the great Spaghetti dinner last night and for filling in as our activities director for the time being. The winter wouldn't be the same without park gatherings. Our next event is the big Swiss Steak Dinner by Frankie on November 16th. We hope to see you all there! (Sign up sheet is in the front office. Please come in by Thursday if you wish to attend.)
