A NEW So Cal Fanatic Social Event

:party :party :party :party

SSR Fanatics and Friends let's get together for a leisurely picnic and a chance to show off our beautiful :ssr babies to folks that don't see them much ! Let's make this even BIGGER than the great turn-out in Corona...outdo Irwindale!!! PLUS - take your :ssr on a nostalgic 17 mile ride along old Route 66!

WHEN: Saturday - October 15, 2005 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. or later

WHERE: North Beach @ Silverlakes, CA in the Helendale area of the High Desert (directions later)OK...having a little difficulty w/directions. Mapquest wants to put you on a road YOU DO NOT WANT TO GO ON!!! And since the beach doesn't have an "actual" address, a map is not the answer. Looks like we will have to meet up in Victorville and either Eric (ECurtis) or I will lead the parade out here. Will post seperate thread re directions. For any of you North LA County folks, PM me and we can get you here the back way...via Hwy 58 to 395.. Nice beach with grassy area along a residential community lake with plenty of off-street parking for the :ssr but visible to the locals.

ACTIVITIES: Music, games, food, raffles and 50/50 drawing to benefit the Helendale School Foundation. (If anyone would like to donate to raffle please PM me for non-profit, tax deductible # and/or donation letter from foundation)Seems the foundation people are a bit dense...so we may not be having any stuff to benefit them...but we're gonna have fun anyway and probably won't spend as much money!!!!

FOOD AND DRINK: Potluck - picnic style. Eric (ECurtis) will be tracking food and who will bring what. Please PM him or post on this thread what you can/will bring. BBQs are available along with a shaded picnic area with tables and benches.

WHAT TO BRING: Your :ssr , your honey, EZ-ups if you have them, chairs, food, drink, name tags, and plenty of conversation!

Lloyd (lloger) will be monitoring this thread for those who do not have name tags. So, as you sign up to go, please, give your name, forum name, who you are bringing, and their relationship to you.

Southern California Social Event -POTLUCK FOOD!

THANKS Lloyd and Gerry!

SSR FANATICS! :party

As, sister Randi (Artsmart) said we are going to have one incredible blow-out event at Silverslakes in the High Desert on October 15! It will also be a fundraiser and a potluck.

So everyone please bring something from one of the categories below: Please bring enough for at least (5) people. Now: There are also barbecues for those of you who want to barbecue hot dogs and hambergers. So without further adieu, here is what is needed. Also I will start it off. Also everyone should bring their own alcoholic beverages, but bring non-alcoholic beverages to share.

Categories:

Entrees (Main Dishes):

1) Delicious Cold Cut Platter with Cheese (Enough for 20 people)-ECurtis
2) Hot Dogs for bargecuing (Enough for 20 people)-ECurtis
3) Carne Asada (Jim&Kat-Jimkat)
4) Marinated beef ribs - very similar to kalbe (Korean BBQ)-(hdflstf)


Side Dishes (They get in the way of the main course! :glol )

1) Baked Beans (CNC Dude Brandy)
2) Fruit and Cheese for 20 (ECurtis)
3) Delicious Fried Rice (Art, Lucky and Stitch-hdflstf)



Salads (Great for a balanced diet :yesnod )

1) Potato Salad (CNC Dude-Brandy)
2) Smokin Potato Salad (Jim&Kat-JimKat)
3) Big Green Saad with Lots O' Goodies (Jolene & Bill Gaughey (SoCaBill)



Desserts (The best part of any meal :agree :glol )

1) Eric's rendition of Karen's Famous Cherry Delicious-YUM (Thanks Karen!)-ECurtis
2) Special Cake (Mystery Cake!! Yeah!!!)-Crazyrtr53 (Tony)
3)


Drinks-Need Non-Alcoholic but if you want Alcoholic you should bring your own-(No getting :smash)

1) Sodas (Regular and Diet) and Water-Randi (Artsmart)
2)
3)



Snack Food (Chips, Dips, etc :lurk)


1) Tortilla Chips, Salsa and Dip (Lloyd and Gerry-Lloger)
2) Tortilla Chips-Randi (Artsmart)
3)


Incidentals (Very Important Can't do without these: Charcoal, eating utensils, paper plates, paper towels, napkins, foil, cups, lots of large trash bags and lots and lots of ice)

1) Napkins, plasticware, paper plates and cups for all who attend (Lloyd and
Gerry-Lloger)
2) Ice (Jim&Kat-Jimkat)
3) Propane Barbecue (Jim&Kat-JimKat)
4) Mustard, Ketcup-Randi (Artsmart)



Now, there will not be any electical sources so there is no way to heat things electically (unless you do so using the SSR's outlets).

Also remember everybody clean up after themselves.

Also I would love to have at least (35) SSR's! How about it? How about twice that? Wouldn't that be great!!! It would be our own version of the Dream Cruise!

Now I am also investigating the following and will post later once I know more. Also if anyone has any contacts on specialties in this these areas and would like to help please P.M. me. Randi (Sis) and I would like a lot of involement

Areas Being Investigated:

A) Discount Hotel Rates for Those Thinking of Staying Over from Friday to Saturday
B) Group Dinner at a Restaurant (Roadhouse or Greentree Inn Restaurant, Olive
Garden, etc) on Friday Night.
C) Media Coverage (Maybe Y102 Radio Station in the High Desert-Will need a lot
of SSR's in order to possibly pull this off)

That's it for now!

Please sign up so that we know how many to expect. Also if I can tell Y102 that we will have (50) SSR's then they might send someone!

Oh Nooooooooooo!!!

Sorry All,

I may not be able to be there after all. :mad

It was announced this morning that my Once-a-year continuing education class will be taught by one of my favorite Christian Music composers. I found out this morning that the class is only offered October 15th :mad

Because of who is teaching this class, I won't know until this Sunday if my pre-registration will be accepted. (I signed up at the end of last year)

If I get bumped by more tenured Music Ministers, then I will be at the rally. I’ll keep you posted.

No problem Joe, it never fails that something else will come up when there is an event we want to attend. There will be plenty of room so if you can make it at the last minute...come on up! Enjoy the class. :)

To all: plenty of room on the beach...don't worry about last minute sign-ups, one of the reasons we posted so early was to give everyone ample opportunity to make arrangements to be here.

Thanks for the bump up...this event isn't getting too much attention as yet but we still have 3 weeks and counting...haven't heard from Jeff (TALLNA) and don't know if he will still be coming even tho some SOB took his pretty baby :ssr , I'm sure he has more important things on his mind. Thinking of some contingency plans in case we don't need such a big site but waiting to hear from my Bro, Eric :boxing
