Anticipating the Escapade

Casa Grande, AZ
Sundance RV Resort

Not anything exciting happening here the last few days.  

Wednesday we attended the Chapter 45 Escapees luncheon in Apache Junction. There were 53 people who attended.  Not bad for a Chapter that only holds luncheons 5 months out of the year.  

Ed Allard, the president, has made the plans for our annual picnic.  He always comes to the luncheon with ideas and suggestions for the chapter.

There was a short meeting for the officers after the luncheon to discuss changing the by-laws.  The chapter name was recently changed to conform with the chapter requirements of the Escapees National headquarters.   

I was surprised to find out two more couples are planning to attend the Escapade (National Rally) in Vermont this year.  That will make seven couples that I know of that are already registered from our chapter.  Five couples have reservations at an RV park near Essex Junction.  The fifth couple actually was given a reservation for a seasonal site as the other sites were full.  

Sorry I brought the camera, but didn't take photos.

The following day we met Bob and Pam Beltz at the Elks lodge.  They are fairly new residents of Arizona and wanted to join.  We took them in and signed the proposal paperwork.  It was time to also pay our dues for 2016 so we saved the price of a stamp.  

There were no meals at the lodge so we decided to go to Mi Amigo Ricardo's for dinner.  We haven't known Bob and Pam very long, but we just kind of clicked with them.  Why does that happen sometimes?   

It's always so nice to hear about different places they have been and telling them of some interesting places we've been.  

Super Bowl is tomorrow and I think Bill and I are the only two people in the USA that don't want to go to a Super Bowl party.  We had two invitations to attend, but I'd much rather lounge around in my pj's, munch when I want to and stretch out on the couch.  

We realized this morning that we didn't have any beads or masks for the upcoming Mardi Gras party.  Somehow that short trip to the store took most of the morning.  Casa Grande stores had all kinds of stuff for Valentines Day and St. Patrick's Day but not much for Mardi Gras.  Oh well, we'll just have to stop in New Orleans this summer and pickup stuff for next year.  

The weather forecast for Winter Blast is temps to be in the 80's.  It should be just perfect.  Hopefully, the winds will be very calm.  

Turtle Safely.......
