Blog Update - Can Am Challenge at Twentynine Palms RV Resort

It has been a very busy three days at Twentynine Palms RV Resort - the Annual CanAm Golf Challenge!

It is time for the Americans to challenge the Canadians to some fun golf. It is a 2 day event, with 4 separate challenges of match play! It is always a fun and festive time, with plenty of bantering back and forth regarding the golf skills!

Up to this year the standings are as follows - Canadians 6 - Americans 5 and 2 ties! It was time for the American team to try and even the score!

To capture the essence of the tournament, I felt it was the "Faces of the CanAm" that was important - hard to capture the actual golf play.....


The fearless leader and Canadian Team Captain!

The American Team Captain!

The Players!

Yesterday we held a Memorial Service for our good Park friend Bill Stock!

Bill Stock was a huge part of the success of the golf course and the Challenge always a friendly smile and great attitude, he will be missed by his many friends here!

Some great memories and stories were shared!

There was a huge turn-out!

A wonderful buffet!

Time for the results!! Will the American Team come through and tie the overall?

The crowd anxiously awaits the results!

There were some more Canadian than others!

The end result - the American Team pulled it out at the end!!

Mardi Gras a time for good food and fun!

The annual Mardi Gras Celebration here at Twentynine Palms RV Resort was a huge success.

The kitchen crew delivered a wonderful dinner of Jambalya, Red Beans and fresh bread and salad! And it was fantastic! Soon after dinner the festivities started with a special guest comedian - Patrick Hanifin, who did a wonderful show and had everyone in stitches for more than an hour after dinner!

Soon after the comedy show our good friend Walt Young stepped up to the stage and the music and dancing got started!

We had a big crowd to join in the great meal and celebration!

Our guest comedian - Patrick Hanifin!

Time for some music!

In addition to the comedy and dancing our activity director Pat Jennette set up a "photo booth" in the front of the clubhouse where there were props for some fun portraits!!

Now for some great fun pictures!

There will be some proofs available in the next few days and Pat Jennette will be getting prints made of the portraits for those that want them, so stay tuned!

We have a busy week this week with the Can-Am Golf Challenge Monday and Tuesday and on Wednesday we have a Memorial Service for Bill Stock then Thursday we are off to the Orchid Farm in Landers...
