10 Years Ago This Month – July 2000

Pool Party

Date: Saturday, July 15, 2000
Time: 11:00 AM
Place: Georgia Welcome Center
Members Attending: Bill Baugh, Bonnie Baugh, Brian Bogardus, Donna Bogardus, Karen, Breitinger, Kurt Breitinger, Jim Creer, Judy Creer, Carol Haff, John Haff and Rudy Wilmoth.
Guests Attending: Jim & Peta Culley.

Everyone except the Bogarduses met at the Welcome Center for the short drive to the Creer Estate. Brian and Donna beeped on their way by (nobody heard) to the Club P.O. Box to check the mail before ending up at the water filled hole in the ground behind 4047 Fairfax Street in Martinez.

As always there was more food than mouths. The Creer’s provided the bratwurst and hot dogs as well as all the fixin’s. Donna brought her world famous chicken & sausage shish-ka-bobs. John brought his blue ribbon cheese cake. I’m sorry if I forgot what everyone else brought, but there was plenty of high-octane human food. And then to top it off we had to suffer through some homemade peach ice cream, oh the pain.

After eating most of us tried in vain to burn some of the calories consumed by thrashing around in the pool. Jim has this huge inflatable dragon that is as hard to tame as U.S. Highway 129 between North Carolina and Tennessee. A lot of us tried to ride it only to be thrown off repeatedly. Some had more success than others, notably Carol, and it turns out this dragon requires a smooth and balanced application of power mixed with healthy respect just like the Gap. Because this is a family oriented publication we won’t even go into where the inflation valve on this green monster is.

Because Brian was only 2 weeks removed from knee surgery he really couldn’t do any diving, as such the 3rd Annual Big Splash contest never did get off the board (so to speak.) Jim tried a few wave makers but, nobody else joined in.

We ate, we swam, and the afternoon wore on. It wasn’t until only about half the attendees were left that we realized that we were supposed to have a meeting and elect the new slate of officers. Oh well, it’s not like the club will cease to exist. We’ll do it next time. Times like this just reinforce this year’s Presidential nominee, Rudy’s, idea for a separate business meeting. We get together for these rally’s and are too busy having fun to worry about mundane issues….
