Finally able to get my web page up so that I can post the Blog. The meeting with the building dept. went pretty good They again are asking for more changes from the engineer. They were also still requiring sprinklers. Finally talked to the fire marshal and he said he signed off and sprinklers were not required. That happened on May 25th. I was not a happy camper when I called the county back. They say that they will get with the fire dept and get things straight . As soon as I get the paper work back from engineer we may have a permit. Dave and Matt installed the Sod on Tuesday, looks great, will post pictures in the gallery. The Riders Casino Night was a great hit. Everyone had a blast. There was no NASCAR this week so I have no results. We do have a celebrity working as a volunteer bartender. Ellen kicked ass in the Cowboy Race at the rodeo on Sunday. She not only won by a long shot, but she was the oldest rider. We are not telling how old that is. Again, congratulations. The Queen sheriff for Friday was Joyce Shelby, her card was the #20. No Queen, but she did win the Dick Tracy watch as a gift card. Hope the paving contactor shows up this week and gets our asphalt work done AUX will be cooking dinner Friday night, come on down and take a shot at the Queen who will be worth $2,400.00
It seem's that I get later each week, time just goes by to fast. I have news regarding our permit, I don't know if it is good or bad. I received a call from the county on Monday in response to the corrections that the engineer provided. It was not a good call. I was not a happy camper. It did get some action .I have a appointment with the building dept. supervisor at 2 o'clock on Friday to try a resolve some of the problems and keep it in house. A call to the Fire Marshall has yet to be returned, will try again later today. Have awarded the contract for the asphalt repair but have not got a start date for that project. David and Matt have installed the sprinkler's and the top soil in the new grass area They will be putting the sod in shortly. Know for what happened during the week, not much. The Brad Pasley and the parade on Sat. kind of took it's toll on our business. Not sure how the Rodeo will effect business this week. We have the ALR Casino Night this Friday night after the Queen. Speaking of the Queen Billy was the sheriff Friday. He found a Queen but the wrong one The Queen of Clubs came out of hiding but brought no money with her so the reward this week will be $2.300.00. Sunday's NASCAR winners were Mary for $125.00 and 12 points . Murphy took 2nd for $75.00 and 10 points. The $1.00 boards for $40.00 were Furball and Dave Dolan. Dave Clausen got 13 points ,on 2 cars, to take the points lead. We have NASCAR withdrawals this week because there is no race.
Well it's Wednesday and it has been a good day First I got the ABC permit into the office and approved for the Riders Casino Night on Friday the 18th, after the Queen of Hearts. I got the first bid back from the paving contractor and it was a tad lower than I expected. The first bid for the paving was $5,800.00. Waiting on the 2nd bid before I hire someone to do the job. Got the paper work back from the Engineer and will be calling the County for an appointment to see how many more hoop's we will have to jump thru in order to get a permit. Not much happening in the canteen and the sweepstakes machines have been dead. Had a good time with Wham- Bam Bingo on Thursday. Friday's sheriff was Randy and her card was the Ace of Spades so the Queen got away again. This weeks reward will be $2,200.00. The music after the Queen was great. This week Friday will be the Birthday Bash with Mambo Wally, come and party down. Saturday will be the ALR Poker Run and BBQ. The NASCAR winners for Daytona were ,Dale and Heidi for $500.00 David Clausen 2nd for $150.00 3rd place was Japana for $50.00 as well as leader at half for another $50.00 Dave Clausen $50.00 for 15th Mike H got his $20.00 back for last. Tom won $125.00 and 12 points on the $6.00 board Deli Bob won $75.00 for 2nd and 10 points. Victor and Deli Bob won the $1.00 board
Well all the things that I started last week got finished, how about that. Will post some pictures in the gallery of the new wall. I have a call in to a couple of grading and paving contactors to redo the paving and extend the parking lot. Like everyone else they don't return calls The engineer has yet to get back to me either.
We had a very good week, Ellen did a hell of a job on her organization of all the events that went on Sat. The parking lot sale was a big success , people already wanting to sign up for the next one.. Peter Parker and his partner won the horseshoe tournament. The SAL BBQ went off without a hitch and the music by Mambo Walley was great. To top it off the canteen had a great day. Friday nights sheriff was Robert, he was trying to score big with the reward on his birthday, but it didn't happen. The Queen is still on the loose and the reward will be $2,1000 for the 4th of July. The NASCAR winners for the week were Troy for first,$125.00 and 12 points Furball $75.00 and 10 points The dollar winners were Victor and Warren. Hope to see you all on the 4th
