Golf Cart Races Recap

The (almost) annual Golf Cart Race was held on the east side of the clubhouse on Saturday, March 20, 2021, on a perfect day with moderate temperatures and  slightly cloudy sky.

Contestants paired off and each team navigated a serpentine course with a blindfolded driver, and a sidekick giving spoken instructions on such matters as “turn left, turn right, slow down, back up, speed up STOP!!”  A bloodthirsty audience gathered to observe this rite of passage and cheer on the carnage.

It was looking like the hopeful fans were to be disappointed in the lack of crashes until almost the end, when Neal, under the tutelage of Richard, drove off course and devastated the entrance to a neighboring lot.  The zest of the crowd was attested to later on by member John Maxfield, two streets over, who wondered what all the cheering and laughter was all about.

Richard Headley photographed the event, while Larry Smith timed the teams and Marlene Moir kept book, er, rather, recorded the results.  Below is some incriminating evidence:

The audience is warned to keep well back of the action

Starter and judge Valerie gives instructions to first-time driver Janice

Winners of the coveted “Slower than a Turtle” award: a roll of TP

First Place: Park visitors Walt and Helena Confer

 

Neal and Richard receive the well-deserved “Most Entertaining” certificate
 

Many thanks to the folks who came to observe and participate, to the many who donated prizes, and especially to Richard Headley, Larry Smith and Marlene Mohr, and Mike Smith, who scurried around picking up toppled and crushed orange course marker cones.

It has been a hard winter, so there is lots to do. Meet at the Clubhouse porch on the eastside. We will have some tools. If you have your favorite, bring them. If we have a good turnout, we usually are done in a few hours. It is nice to have it all spruced up at once. The Adopt-A-Spots will be done by those who have adopted as the can. These are the areas we will work on:

CA16 – East side Clubhouse: Cutback and Remove frozen and dead bunny ear cactus and pencil cactus.
CA15 – Memory garden; remove dead plants, clean up stones, remove rotten barrel.     (we will replant later)
CA63 – Asian Jasmin needs cut back or scalloped.
CA30 – Row of Red Yucca near mailboxes, clean out and remove dead.
CA 28 – Herb Garden; near clubhouse dumpster. Clean out and remove dead plants. Trim back Rosemary and Mexican Oregano. (we will plant later) Trees that need trimming:
CA 27 – Near Herb garden; Trim back Ivy.
CA70 – Trim branch over Mailboxes. Adopt-A-Spot pots need paint touchup. If you would rather work on Friday, pick an item and let me know. Sherry will be available. If you have an Adopt-A-Spot, you are always on your own time. Any other help is appreciated. We like our neighborhood to look nice.

Sincerely,

Sherry Bruce and Barbara Richardson, Co-Chair Landscape Committee

Movie Night

On Saturday, March 13th at 6:30pm in the Clubhouse, we will be showing “KNIVES OUT” with Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis. Don Johnson, Chris Evans, and Christopher Plummer. The circumstances surrounding the death of crime novelist Harlan Thrombey are mysterious but there’s one thing for sure: everyone in the wildly dysfunctional Thrombey family is a suspect.   A great ‘who done it’.

Come out and join us. You’re welcome to bring your own comfy camp chair and beverage.  Your hosts for the evening are Nelson and Chris Davis, Lot 11.  Plenty of room for spreading out, masks are encouraged.
