Vagabonds News 

Welcome back to the Vagabonds. We are ready to start camping again after being dark for three months. Many were traveling during the summer to escape the heat and some stayed behind to enjoy the benefits of our wonderful lake. Hopefully all had a great summer.

We will begin our regular meetings in September at 1:00. We normally meet the 2nd Wednesday of the month, however, the first meeting in September will be the first Wednesday of the month, which is September 4th. The reason for this change is our campout in Williams begins on the 11th, which is the 2nd Wednesday. By changing the date of our meeting, it will not interfere with the Williams campout.

 The campout in Williams will be at the Railside RV Ranch hosted by Bill & Debbie Horton and Don & Sue Underwood. If you have not made your reservations yet, the overflow will be at the Canyon Motel and RV Park, which is very close by. The Railside tries very hard to accommodate our group, so call them first to see if they can fit you in. This is a very well attended outing and is always lots of fun. There will be off-roading, golf, shopping and, of course, happy hours. Also, this year we will have Slade Rivers playing for our enjoyment on Saturday evening.

Our campout in October will be at the Sundance RV Park, which is on the California side of the Parker strip. This is organized by Don & Sue Underwood and the dates are October 9th through the 12th .

Other trips that our members have committed to are Needle Mountain in February, which will be dry camping, and Wickenburg in May. We don’t have the exact dates for these campouts, but will let you know as soon as they have been finalized. We count on our members to pick the camping spot and host the campout. It’s very easy to do this and we are always willing to help those who have not done this in the past. It’s more fun if two couples do it together. We all contribute to having a successful campout as we have a great group of members. I look forward to seeing everyone at our September meeting on Wednesday, the 4th

Golf Club News:

As the summer season comes to an end, I would like to send out a big welcome back to John Hammerel from his health issues good job John. We would also like to welcome back our winter visitors over the next couple of months.

 A reminder to all that we will be alternating between the East and West course during the over seeding period of the two courses. This should be complete by November. The monthly away tournaments will continue as usual, the sign-up sheet will be at the Lodge and the check-in desk.

For all of those that were able to go to Williams, I hope you had a good time and look forward to next year. Again, a big thanks to Steve for his time and effort in scheduling these events.

Remember the semi-annual scramble and luncheon will be held in October, so look for the sign-up sheet soon. You don’t have to play good, just fast.
