Departure information as of 12/13:
Christmas Lunch planned for Sunday,
December 18, 2005
I learned today, the menu they sent me was outdated. We
decided to go with the top of the line luncheon which I will describe later, the
price on the menu was $22.95 per person + tax and 20% gratuity. I discovered
today, the current price is $26.95 for the same selection, but I held their feet
to the fire at the price they originally quoted me. This makes it within pennies
of $30 per person when the tax and tip are added.
I have temporarily secured all arrangements with my
personal credit card. We will eventually be writing a club check following the
event. Please mail your check to our Treasurer, Virgil Jackson at 10417 East
Charter Oak Drive Scottsdale, AZ 85259. Checks should be made out to the club
and once again, the tab is $30 per person.
We have been guaranteed the Arizona Room, which is a large
conference room with lovely decorating and the best ambiance.
This is the buffet selection we ordered, called the Mile
Shrimp and scallop scampi; breast of chicken picatta;
chef's potato, seasonable vegetables; prime rib carving station with a bikini
clad model doing the serving (just kidding) with appropriate sauces and
condiments as well as a uniformed carver (I like my idea better) tossed garden
greens with two dressing choices; marinated mushroom salad and cucumber dill
salad; fresh fruit tray & freshly baked garlic rolls served with butter. (I
forgot to ask, but I believe soft drinks and dessert are included, it was last
time we did this. I think it was brownies and lemon squares or something like
So......................please get busy and mail your
checks to our esteemed Treasurer before you forget. Since we have given the Inn
a guarantee, those who have signed up are obligated to pay for their meals even
if they cancel out. At this writing, I'm assuming that all those on the
"attending" list will in fact, attend.
For the "maybe" and "not heard from"
list's, there is still time to join in.
When the time comes, please check on the weather in the
Prescott area. If it's raining or snowing, we'll most likely leave the Z cars at
home and take the daily driver instead. This could change all the plans for the
departure point, time etc. I'll check the weather on the afternoon of Saturday
the 17th and get an email out to everyone. Please remember to check your email
in the afternoon for any late breaking changes. If we are rained or snowed out,
maybe its best if we abandon the plan to drive together and instead, just meet
at the Hassayampa Inn no later than noon on Sunday, which is when the luncheon
We will meet in the Albertsons shopping center on Carefree
Hwy 1/4 mile East of Interstate 17 on the morning of Sunday Dec 18th at 9:15 AM.
We'll depart at 9:30 AM, allowing ourselves 2-1/2 hours for the drive. We'll be
taking the route through Wickenburg, Yarnell, etc into Prescott. We'll enter
town from Hwy 89 on to Montezuma Street. Go past Goodwin St to the next corner
which is Gurley Street. Turn right and go slightly past Cortez, the Hassayampa
Inn will be on your left and the parking lot on your right. Google
maps Some of our members will be driving up on Saturday night and staying
overnight, so our caravan out of town, will be short by 4 or 5 cars.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
