Driftwood Parade – Fast Eddie/Slow Tony’s Marching Club

Good morning, fellow members!  I have a message for you from Slow Tony regarding the marching club you see in the Driftwood parade:

I was having a conversation regarding Fast Eddie’s/Slow Tony’s marching group and the Driftwood Parade.  This statement was made, “We were never asked to participate.” I said jokingly that we don’t have a big marketing budget, but we want everyone to know that all the guys are invited to join. I guess it has never been put out there, other than a friend telling a friend, so now it is out there..

Well, we don’t want people to think it is a closed group. We want the folks of Driftwood to participate…because if they don’t this little pleasantry will go the way of Schwegmann’s, K&B and McKenzie’s. So if you are lucky enough to read this…because it is going to the Civic Association and the Country Club mailing lists and site, then please join us.

We are a very informal group and we could use a boost in members. By doing so, you can have some fun, meet more people, and assist in keeping a tradition alive. It’s been $25.00 for a number of years and that just goes to pay the band and get a bit of face paint…and if there is anything left, we’ll cover a few hot dog purchases at the end of the parade.

To get involved just email Slow Tony at altruismplus@aol.com

This is a really great group of guys and a wonderful way to make new friends in the neighborhood.  Call Tony today to see how you can participate.  It’s not too late for this Saturday!

Good evening!  I hope everyone is having a great summer!  I wanted to update everyone on a few items.

Social Committee Survey

I have created a VERY short survey to gauge member interest in possible social events.  Please take a few minutes to fill it out and let us know what events you would like to see!  Also, there will be a Social Committee meeting on Tuesday, June 24th at 6:30 pm.  Come out and help plan all the fun!  (There will be wine and snacks at the meeting).  
Friday Night BBQ
We are continuing the long-honored tradition of Friday Night BBQs.  Please come out and join in the fun.  Starting next Friday, June 27th, we will host a game or two for the kids and have prizes for the winners.  Don’t forget to gather your friends and sign up to cook for a night.  It’s a great way to meet your fellow members!
Swim Team Reminder
Remember that the swim team has practices every Monday from 6 pm to 7 pm and on Saturdays until 11:00 am.  Also, the pool will be closed on the evenings of July 8th and July 15th for swim meets.  Come out and cheer on the team!
Open Pit Reminder
Enjoy poolside grilling every weekend for the duration of the summer.  The grill will be available every Saturday and Sunday during pool hours.  Bring in your own items to grill and charcoal.  It’s a great way to make every weekend special for your family during the summer.
