Western Winter Blast--Day 5

Lake Havasau City, Arizona
Rodeo Grounds Q5

Today is John Kohl's birthday.  Happy Birthday, John. 

 To celebrate John cooked his special pancakes for all of us.  They were wonderful.  
We added a few side dishes and had a banquet.

Dennis and Linda are enjoying their breakfast.
As usually when we are together there's a lot of talking going on until the food comes out.  

Breakfast was at 9 and we were still chatting at noon when they opened up the registration for next year.  
The lines formed quickly to reserve a spot for next year.  We're booked. No refunds if you can't come.

I finally got photos of the restrooms.  
I haven't seen such nice clean restrooms in a long time.  This was the women's.

This was the men's restroom.

The local martial arts students were raising money to go to a competition in Canada and were having a dinner.  Even though we had that huge breakfast we went with David and Linda.  It's so nice having everything located so close you don't have to drive to it.  
While we were waiting for the dinner we watched these Arizona kids sled riding.  They were on top of this sand hill with a piece of cardboard and sliding down it.  Who says they don't have an imagination?  

Dinner was a little late due to the fact that some of the mothers who were going to help serve had a little too much beer to drink.  

They had a popcorn machine and gave us popcorn while we waited.  It was worth the wait.  For our $7.00 we had barbecue ribs, hot dogs, garden salad, potato salad, chili, grilled asparagus, cake, drinks which included draft beer.  

They had a raffle and had a .380 Smith and Wesson for grand prize.  Needless to say, we didn't win but the money went to a good cause.  

The kids gave martial arts demonstrations and we were surprised how good they were.  

The sun started setting and we decided even though we were by the bleachers, we preferred to go watch the fireworks down by our trailer.  

The show was great and now that we've had our shower and turned on the TV and computers the fireworks are still going off.  We'll be sound asleep before they quit.  

Bill and I are so happy we came up here instead of staying at the steps.  They do recommend that if you have a pet it is not advisable to stay here.  One lady's dog ran off and she still hasn't located it.  

Turtle Safely......
