FLORIDA STATE WINNIE GATORS
October 2009 Outing
by Nancy Miller
October 16 – 18, 2009 was the fall meeting at Torrey Oaks RV Resort in Bowling Green, FL. Our weekend theme was Halloween.
The Rec Hall was decorated in time to welcome 60 coach families for the weekend. Some members came early to enjoy the amenities at the park.
Friday morning the ladies gathered to make a pumpkin decoration. Several members had new coaches and kindly opened them for tours. Committee meetings were held, and Happy Hour convened at 4pm at the Rec Hall with a 50/50 drawing. Dinner was served by Rainbow Caterers followed by an Ice Cream Social. The business meeting was held at 7pm, followed with games for the rest of the evening.
Saturday breakfast was served and 16 golfers in the group went to the course adjoining the park for a round of golf. A shuffleboard contest was held for the non-golfers with 36 members there to share in the fun! Happy Hour was held at 4pm and most everyone came in Halloween costumes for our theme. A conga line was started with all the costumes on parade! Our park hosts served as judges and the winners were picked! Dinner was served at 6pm, and prizes were awarded for the golf and shuffleboard winners. The costume winners were also announced and they received their prizes! Our overall best costume winner was Damaris Travers dressed as a devil! Jerry Miller acted as our “Mystery D.J.” and played music from the 50’s for dancing.
Sunday morning everyone met at the Rec Hall for a continental breakfast before saying our goodbyes.
