50's Night in Twentynine Palms Resort - Time for some Rock & Roll

It was time for a Rockin Good Time in the clubhouse Saturday night for our annual 50's Night. We had a nice large crowd of over 40 people ready to rock the night away....

The kitchen staff had a great dinner planned with fresh grilled hamburgers and hotdogs with french fries, salad and all the fixins...the music was ready to go and it was time for a rockin good time!

Load of pictures for this event, so here we go!!

Our 50's girl so cleverly made by Pat Ruth - met us at the door!

The decorations in the clubhouse fit the theme!!

Jim and Lori's Dinner was getting the food ready!!

The guys had the grill fired up and cooking!!

The girls were ready to feed the party! Can never thank the kitchen crew enough for what they do!!

Nice crowd ready to eat!!

In short order the food was finished and the dance floor got busy!!

Always a couple songs for the line dancers!!

However the evenings entertainment was just starting - it was time for Pat Ruth and the Twentynine Palms Thespian Troupe to take center stage for a little 50's tribute! Names are being withheld to protect the Troupe!

Pat started off with a great radio commercial for "Hits from the 50's" and the actors sang to the music!!

The Singers!!

As the evening wound down and the actors took their final bows to a huge applause and signed autographs...

Carmine decided he needed just one more dance and in came our girl again!

She was so good looking soon someone had to cut in!!

Another great evening of fun and food at the beautiful Twentynine Palms RV Resort!

Blog Update - Another Saturday Night and a ton of activities!

The past week has been a busy one with the park at near capacity for a large caravan and Rally which brought in 42 RV's and almost a 100 people for some great times. All of us at the park would like to thank Joe and Mary Costigan and their group the Freighliner Chassis RV Group for stopping by the park for the week and participating in our activities.

Twentynine Palms RV Resort is perfect for Caravans and Rally's with plenty of nice RV Sites, a huge meeting room and plenty of room for the planned activities. Add in the wonderful heated and covered pool and spa, Joshua Tree National Park and other local amenities including golf, horseshoes, shuffleboard and beautiful is a Desert Paradise.

Our Saturday night dinner dance was another huge success with Laurie and Jim dishing up some pork chops, scalloped potatoes, vegetable and a nice salad. It was a great crowd and most stayed to dance the night away to live music provided by Walt Young. There were plenty of dancers on the floor and a great meal and a little dancing makes for a great time!

Some pictures from this past Saturday Dinner Dance!

Walt Young providing some great music!

Soon the dance floor filled up!

And when Walt sang out "Elvira" Pat Ruth and her line dancers hit the floor!!

And the activity didn't end on Saturday Night - Sunday was football playoffs and about 15 football fans hit the clubhouse and the big screen TV was busy! Magically wings and pizza appeared along with other snacks and beverages - everyone pitched in and we enjoyed some great football.

Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos and we look forward to Super Bowl Sunday in a couple weeks!

Stay tuned for activity updates!!

All too soon the evening wound down with a rendition of Auld Land Syne!

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot, and never thought upon; The flames of Love extinguished, and fully past and gone: Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold, that loving Breast of thine; That thou canst never once reflect On Old long syne.

A great Holiday Party with our friends here at Twentynine Palms RV Resort!

Stay tuned for more from the desert as the season is just beginning!

A truly wonderful winter retreat in the Southern California Desert!
