What Happened in November?

Pre-Thanksgiving Potluck at Faywood Hot Springs

The weather on the weekend prior to Thanksgiving was very kind to us, though the Sunday morning clouds blocked out any views of the Leonid Meteor Showers that might have been seen, they soon cleared away to a beautiful blue sky similar to what we experienced on the previous day.

There were several cross-country travelers in the soaking pools who all seemed to be traveling the full country with hot springs venues in mind for camping.  With the cooling of the autumn weather, it seems as if we are meeting some delightful people and having good conversations in the soaking pools.

This was the first time that SunTree reserved and paid for the use of the clubhouse for our potluck meal.  When we went into the clubhouse, we  were pleased to see that the staff of the Faywood Hot Springs had prepared it for the SunTree folks.  The tables were all lined up in the center of the room with table cloths on them and there was a warm fire already going in the fireplace.

As is usual, there was way too much food available at the potluck, but we did our best to finish it off (with dubious results - there were leftovers).

What is Happening in December?

The Normal "End of The Year" Gap

December is not a good month for SunTree activities.  Years ago, the Hakes always hosted a wonderful event for SunTree, but we have dropped into a empty calendar for the months at the end and at the beginning of the year.  Most of our members seem to have family plans for the book-end months of the year.  For that reason we have not bothered to put any activities on the SunTree calendar.

Many of the old hands at SunTree may remember the "after the holidays" event that we had in January several years ago.  If anyone has a suggestion for a similar event for your club this year, do not hesitate to send it in to SunTree so that it may be included on the website and in the January newsletter.  Otherwise, our next event will be our Valentine's event in February.

Speaking of the Valentine's event, please let us know if you plan to participate in that event (or if you find that you cannot) as soon as possible.  If we have enough soakers and potluck diners, we will reserve the club house at Faywood Hot Springs for that event.

Suggestions for events are always welcome.
