Well it has been a very dull but stress full week. Our contractor got the stiches out of his leg and was back on the job Tuesday. Finished up the 1st lift on the wall on Wednesday and was able to call for inspection for Thursday morning. After inspection called for the concrete and made arrangements for a pump. Got started back on the wall about noon on Friday. The contractor informed me that he got a notice for jury duty on Monday so they were going to work on Saturday. Wednesday they were ready for me to call for the 2nd lift inspection for Thursday The canteen has been real slow on the night shift. Thursday ,as always was a good day, free lunch and WHAM-BAM Bingo. Friday we actually had a good day as well as night shift. Larry Ash was the lucky Sheriff for the second time in two weeks. His choice of envelopes this week was #17, out jumped the 10 of Clubs, no money but 20 ticket's for next weeks reward of $6,000.00 We will also draw for $100.00 dollar in cash. Saturday night was" March Birthday Celebration" Music was provided by "Mambo Wally", could of had a better turnout, but everyone that did had a great time. Sunday was the ALR meeting and the NASCAR marathon. The race started at 10 and after several rain delays finished at about 7:30. Joyce and I took first place for $125.00 and 12 points ,we also took the overall points lead by 1 point for a total of 30. Mike got 2nd for $75.00 and 10 points, he also won one of the dollar boards for $40.00. Jeanie won the other dollar board. I posted some new pictures in the Gallery of the construction project. Hope to have some news on the engineering for the Gazebo next week. Till then come on down and check out our progress
I'm not sure how this Blog is going to go. It's has been the most stressful week that I have had since I have been a member. You add the stress of no work on the wall, along with the building Dept. possible wanting fire sprinklers in the gazebo, you add the need for a structural engineer to design something that has worked fine for 30 years, plus as bar manager I have got to resolve some possible problems that may be happening with the volunteer help. I'm not thru yet, I still have to prepare for the Area 2 meeting that will be here on the 22nd & 23rd. Well I do see some light at the end of the tunnel. It really has not helped my head ach but I will get over it. The structural engineer called me today and I have a meeting with him on Wed. He seems to have a fairly simple solution to the problem that should satisfy the county. My contractor had his I'V bag removed from his leg on Friday and will be getting the stiches out on Monday, hopes to be back on the job on Tuesday. Talked to some one from the Area 2 people and it seems that this meeting will be only for Legion Officers not AUX & SAL maybe 50 people. OK back to what has happened at the Post this week. Placed our orders on Monday put them away on Tuesday, no big deal. Wednesday's Karaoke only hand 6 singer's we will not be renewing our contract that will be up on April 9th. Thursday is always a good day with free lunch and WHAM -BAM BINGO. Friday's Queen of Hearts draw went to Larry Ash and his pick was envelope 13, to tell you the truth I forgot what card was there, but It was not the Queen. The Reward for Friday will be $5,700.00. After the Queen "the Pocket full of Blues " band did a great job in entertaining the troops. Sunday was District 28 meeting in Seaside , I was nominated for the 2nd Vice position, that I will decline at the next meeting. I had a water board meeting at my house so I did not get to watch the race but I do have the results. I'st place went to Mary for $125.00 and 12 points also she won one of the $1.00 boards for $40.00 2nd place went to Jim & Margit for $75.00 and 10 point. Jim Davis and myself won the second $1.00 board for $40.00. Don't forget we will be having Corn Beef & Cabbage on Friday night and March Birthday celebration on Sat. with Music by "Mambo Wally".
Due to the weather and the fact that my contractor is still down with the infection in his leg, there's not much to report on the wall. I did meet with a structural engineer in Seaside to get some help on the necessary specs. on getting a permit for the Gazebo. Haven't heard back from him. Monday, Tuesday and even Wednesday was not very eventful. Thursday was a good day with lunch and WHAM-BAM Bingo. Friday was a very good day for the canteen, starting with the Queen of Hearts draw. We had two real lucky people. Dave and Linda were drawn for the second time in two weeks to try and capture the Queen. Their pick this week was envelope #50 and the card inside was the 4 of Hearts. Next weeks reward will be $5,400.00. Our second draw for the $100.00 went to Ashley Clausen. You won't believe who won the AUX 50/50 draw for $94.00-none other than Ashley Clausen. When you are on a roll you are on a roll. The band "VYBE" kept the house rockin' till close to midnight. Everyone had a great time. Saturday night Randy had the house jumpin' for Jeanie's birthday. Sunday's NASCAR race winners were Japanna for $125.00 and 12 points. Mary second for $75.00 and 10 points. The dollar games winners were Bella and Joyce & Larry for $40.00 ea. We have a Blues band coming down from San Francisco to perform after the Queen draw on Friday night. Hope to see you all there. Don't forget both AUX and LEGION meeting this Thursday.
