Well it looks like all the hard work on the retaining wall has come to an end The backfill was completed an the final grading was finished before the Patroit's run on Saturday. Today Joyce and I put a end on the wall by the driveway and bought some flowers to plant . I had placed some Ice Plant and Dave planted some Rose Bushes earlier in the week Will be calling for a final later in the week. Hope to hear from the Engineer by Friday. Ordered supplies on Monday in preparation for the weekend. The rest of the week was kind of bland. Same old free lunch and Wham-Bam Bingo on Thursday Friday's Sheriff duties went to Jeff, his pick was envelope #4 which housed the 7 of Clubs. This weeks reward will be $7,700.00. Come on down on Friday and try your luck. We will be having live music after the draw for April Birthdays. Saturday was a kick ass day with the Patriots hosting there annual run. The day went real smooth and Scott did a whale of a job on the BBQed Chicken, the best I have had in a long time. The rest of the weekend was rather boring with no NASCAR race. I have posted some new pictures of the run and the wall. More pictures in the gallery
Well Joyce and got the rest of the wall waterproofed on Wednesday Got the OK from the engineer to use the rock that we had. To be safe we installed a sock filter over the pipe so the smaller rock could not get in the holes Got all the pipe placed and some back fill in place in order to contain the rock Today, after the inspector gave us the go, with a lot of help we got the drain rock in and the fabric placed so we could start the fill of the dirt. Will have to bring Charlie in tomorrow to bring some dirt down from up on the hill so we can finish the backfill. Hope to get a chance to contact Alex, the engineer, and try and get the changes approved so we can get the show on the road with the gazebo. Again not much to report on during the first part of the week . Wham-Bam Bingo , as always on Thursday was a lot of fun. Friday's lucky sheriff for the second week in a row was Billy. His pick this week was envelope #59, kicken out the 7 of diamonds. This weeks reward will be $7,300.00 The $100.00 went to Troys lovely wife. The Ladies AUX 50/50 of $101.00 went to Grenda. Saturday was a great day, the Parking lot sale was a blast. Had a great turnout as well as a lot of shoppers. SAL's fund raiser for the North Montery County girls softball team was was a huge success ,they sold well over 200 dinners. The NASCAR race Saturday night was a thriller The winner was Mike H for $125.oo and 12 points, which gives him the points lead by a bunch. 2nd place went to Dennis for $75.00 and 10 points The winners of the $1.00 games were Marlene and Furball. I still have spots for the Taladega ,I know its not spelled right, available $20.00 buy in pays $500.00 to win, $150.00 for 2nd, $50.00, $50.00 for the car leading at half way, and $50.00 for 15th. This week end should be a great time with the Patriots bike run . Hope to see you all there.
Its Tuesday already and I have finally found time to post my blog. I will catch you up on the latest first. Went to Home Depot and picked up the materials for the French Drain. Am having a problem with the drain rock. Called Chapan and gave them the Spec's off from the plans. They delivered 3/8 pea gravel I was expecting 3/4 drain rock. Will have to call the engineer to see if that really was what he wanted. I don't want to put it in and have the inspector tell me it doesn't meet the county spec's. Did coat the south wall this afternoon,hope to have some help tomorrow. The trip to the engineer was more frustrating than helpful He gave me some choices that I will have to put down on paper then try to convince him that they will work Hope he can draw up something to present to the county, all they can say is go back to the drawing board. So much for that. I can't think of anything of any interest that happened Monday, Tuesday, Or Wednesday. WHAM -BAM BINGO on Thursday. Thursday Night was our monthly meeting as well as first round nominations for next years officers. Nominated for Commander Mike Cabael and myself 1st Vice Bob Schreiber Second Vice a new member and I forgot her name .Chaplain Pete , Sargent at Arms Warren Judge Advocate Terry I personally made the announcement that I would be giving up the Bar Managers position at the end of the term as well as I would not be seeking any offices. I will continue with the fund raising and the Gazabo project. Friday night's hunt for the Queen went to Billy and Bernie. Their choice was envelope # 1, no Queen but did uncover a gift card as well as 26 tickets for this coming Friday's draw, which will be $7,000.00. Jokers now worth $175.00. We will have a second draw this week for $100.00. Every one had a good time after the Queen. singing and doing the Karaoke . Saturday the hall was rented out for a private party, had a great day at the canteen. Sunday's NASCAR race was rained out, was ran on Monday. Winners were Robert for $125.00 and 12 points Dennis $75.00 and 10 points $1.00 winners were Murphy and Jim Davis and Joyce. Have a lot of work to do the rest of the week
It's that time again. Got the slab poured back to the wall. Due to the weather we have not been able to start on the sealing of the wall, Maybe by the end of the week. Still have yet to hear from the engineer so I can start with the county permit bull-????. Did go to Home Depot and price out the pipe and fitting for the French drain. May get the chance to pick it up later in the week. Have asked a couple of people for a price on the drain rock. Yet to hear anything. I can't believe how slow it has been. I guess everyone is signing up for Obama Care and paying their taxes. As alway's we had a great turn out for WHAM-Bam BINGO on Thursday. Friday's hunt for the Queen has been picking up due to the size of the reward This weeks sheriff selected envelope #21 exposing the 5 of Clubs, again no money but 26 tickets for next week. The AUX 50/50 draw went to Shermon for $102.00. Mark played some great music until about 11:00. Saturday we hosted a fund raiser for 589's ladies AUX. The weather really hurt the turn out for the bike show but the one's that showed were great. The whole day started kind of slow but picked up later. They had a great lunch and some fine music in the afternoon. Overall it was a success and everyone had a great time. Sunday was NASCAR, a very exciting race. Winners were Marlene for $125.00 and 12 points 2nd place went to Jeff for $75.00 and 10 points he also won the $1.00 game for $40.00. Victor won the other $1.00 game.
