The Club has reserved the Wilkin Ramada in the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park located just southeast of Scottsdale and Indian Bend Roads (7301 E. Indian Bend). The Wilkin Ramada is just south of the Gazebo where the concert will be held. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. so we should start dinner at 6:00 p.m.
Now for some details:
No weapons, so leave your guns at home!
The Club will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, condiments, paper goods, and plastic ware (including beverage cups), and charcoal for grilling.
Bring drinks, a salad, dessert or side dish to share.
After a long and intense negation with the City of Scottsdale and a financial commitment made on behalf of the DCTRA, the club members will be able to consume “BEER”! The only concession I made was that we cannot bring glass bottles into the park.
Seating is only for about 20, and the picnic table benches are hard to sit on, so bring lawn chairs (and blankets for listening to the music on the lawn). The live band is Apple and they play Beatle’s music. The Ramada is about 30 feet form the stage. With the large shade trees this is a good location.
Also, by special invitation I have secured the services of Chef Oldbear and lovely Sous Chef Diane. Please do not comment on the food – you know how temperamental these primadonna chefs can be!
So at the July meeting I will need a commitment on how many members will be in attendance. This will give me and ideal as to how much food to purchase. I will also provide directions at the meeting.
