Saturday, February 23 saw the annual 2019 LSC Golf Cart Races.
On a perfect clear afternoon, 12 teams competed on a course fraught with perils – from traffic cones around which the blindfolded drivers, directed by their fearless cohorts, to a graded road, to boulders and even a wheelchair-bound onlooker (who narrowly escaped with his life).
The race was attended by a couple dozen rubberneckers hoping for some blood and gore, who enthusiastically cheered (and laughed) at the antics of the sometimes accurate, sometimes hopelessly befuddled drivers. Winners with a fastest time (adjusted for running over a cone) were Jim and Randi Rigsby, with a time of 1 minute thirteen seconds. Prizes were also awarded for Slowest Time, Most Entertaining and Safest.
A big thank you to park guest John Maxfield for handling the timepiece, and to Bob Wheaton and Rose Schafer for tracking and scoring the times (and disasters)
Here are the Flea Market Menus.
Don’t forget the yummy Bake Sale items!
Submitted by Cheryl and Dale Curtis Lot #102
Our annual flea market will be on March 2, 2019. Members of the Co-Op can sell their stuff, tables are for rent, and large items will be sold on the Clubhouse east porch. Flyers advertising our Flea Market have been posted around in the local area to bring in buyers.
Member table sales are every Social Hour until then. First table is $10 and each additional table is $5. Sharon Ashford is our volunteer sales lady.
THIS IS A CHANCE TO CLEAN OUT YOUR SHED!
Large items you want to sell on the porch can be brought to the porch from 9-1
on Friday March 1st. All items MUST have name, lot #, amount you want (realizing 10% goes to BB), and lowest you will accept. Around 10 AM we will pull the flatbed trailer around the park to pick up LARGE items. They also MUST have name, lot #, amount you want (realizing 10% goes to BB), and lowest you will accept. If this info is not on them we won’t pick them up.
Do NOT leave items on the porch at other times!! We are not going to go around the park looking for information. After the Flea Market you are responsible for removing any unsold items.
For more information – contact the coordinator, Larry Smith lot #45.

On February 13, 2019, Ladies’ Lunch Bunch attendees consisting of twenty-four ladies carpooled to D’Hanis for lunch at Just Like Home. Pictures of the event were taken by Peggy Krepelka and posted on Facebook. Our next adventure will be March 13 when we will drive to the Castroville golf course for lunch at Julianna’s. A sign-up sheet is on the table in the Clubhouse along with their menu. Their address and telephone number are written on the top of the menu. They also have a website online.
