Blog Update - Christmas Dinner 2016

We had a smaller crowd this years for Christmas Dinner, however the food was plentiful and great assortment and as always the park kitchen crew did a wonderful job on the turkeys - we had oven roasted and deep fried to choose from and both were excellent. I apologize for not getting a picture of the crowd, but I got so interested in the food, I forgot...

Nice Fresh Rolls

Wonderful Deviled Eggs!

Plenty of food to choose from - great dressing and mashed potatoes!

A wonderful relish tray!

The Turkey and Gravy was the best!

Make plans to attend our New Years Party on the 31st - make sure you sign up and pay in the office before Thursday the 29th - Great food and the music starts so we will be dancing the night away!

Our numbers continue to grow - Spud and Sara arrived today and we expect Jim and Linda later today as well.

Wednesday evening we will have happy hour and BBQ starting at 4:30 - bring something to throw on the grill.

Blog Update 2016 Christmas Party

Wednesday evening was the time to gather in the clubhouse for our Annual Christmas Party at Twentynine Palms RV Resort...

We start the evening off with some hot buttered rum and some munchies to enjoy with your libations.

Ben and Jim are our resident mixologists...

Plenty of snacks and toppings for our Chili Dinner!

Those who want to participate in the gift exchange bring a gift ($10.00 max) and get their name put in the hat to be drawn later...when their name is drawn they select a gift and have the option of opening it or trading it for one of the previously opened gifts...lots of fun chasing the good gifts around and stealing it from the last person who claimed the very end the first person gets to choose to keep theirs or select from any of the other gifts. Great fun!

There were plenty to choose from this is about half the pile of loot!

Eddie scored big with some "Moose Slippers" and managed to hang on to them all night...might be because he put them on!

Judy won the prize for opening the most gifts, since every time she scored a good one the next person stole it from her!

However they ended up with some nice gifts!

Shirley who always has a great time - scored some wine so she was very happy!

Plenty of happy people with their gifts!

We had a nice crowd and everyone had a great time...we are still missing some of our regulars, they better hurry the holidays will be over soon!

Plenty of winter season left with tons of fun - so make plans to join us...

Great Week at Twentynine Palms Resort

We had another Great week at Twentynine Palms RV Resort in sunny Southern California. Although like everywhere we got hit with a cold front and some heavy wind for a couple days which slowed the golfers down a little, but not our preparations for the upcoming Holidays.

Our Wednesday night Happy Hour and BBQ was well attended, we had a nice crowd with some new people, who promised to return after the Holidays for the rest of the season. We always love to welcome new friends to the fun here at the Park.

The kitchen crew continues to outdo themselves every Saturday Evening, it was Roast Pork, Mashed Potatoes and gravy and fresh corn, a wonderful salad and spiced apple sauce and bread. For dessert we were treated to fresh baked brownies and ice cream. Add in some wonderful conversations and it was a delightful evening.

Nice crowd of almost 30 people...

All the Christmas decorations are hung with care and waiting for Santa!

This Wednesday we will be having our Hot Buttered Rum Christmas Party and gift exchange and a chili feast. See the schedule below for more details.

No dinner next Saturday Evening - for we will have our Christmas Pot Luck Dinner Sunday at 2 pm, Turkey supplied by the Park, sign up with what you will be bringing in front of the Clubhouse - everyone is welcome for a wonderful Christmas Dinner.

Wednesday Nite Happy Hour and BBQ

Every Wednesday evening we gather with our park friends to socialize and then fire up the BBQ and cook what we brought to throw on the grill.

It is always a great time to converse with our neighbors about our travels and adventures.

More people are arriving daily and we had a nice crowd last evening!

Several people brought some appetizers to snack on during happy hour! I fired up my grill and brought some stuffed Jalapenos!

Great Crowd!

Plans are underway for a wonderful Christmas Celebration in the clubhouse as well as music and dancing for New Years.
