John and Judy Kraft led us on a terrific drive from Independence to Corvallis. We wended our way around fields and over the Buena Vista Ferry (always a delight!). The food was – well? what do you thing? – wonderful. We managed to NOT buy them out of Baklava!
September 23 and October 21 – Inter-club Bowling Tournament We had 8 bowlers for each outing. See ‘Upcoming events’ for our turn to host. (November 18th) Despite the presence of a Club ‘T’ ringer, a great time was had by all in September. We provided out own ringer on 10/21 in the person of Chip Oetting. (‘I didnt’ know you could bowl!’ ‘I could 30 years ago!’) We all walked across the street for pizza and more camaraderie.
