Commodore's Corner - February 2010

Commodora Donna McMahon - Florida Keys 2009





Hard to believe that January has come to a close.

There will be NO monthly club meeting in February. The trip to Fiesta Key is a few days away, February 4 - 14 and the Wind Ceremony is coming up rather quickly.

Speaking of the Keys trip, the rumors are afloat of a new attraction to further entertain the campers at Fiesta Key. Apparently the Taj will be transformed in to a fully functional theatre and the feature film is The Blues Brothers! I'm pretty sure we will have our usual "movie night" and a trip to Key West to observe the wonderfully diverse cultures while biking along Duval Street.

Swami and the Festoons will most certainly be ready for the Wind Ceremony as Swami has now called for practice 2 nights a week! That's a sure sign that the Wind Ceremony is truly right around the corner. Swami and the Festoons will have the crowd on the dance floor with some oldie but goodies along with a few new toons this year. Make sure you mark your calendar for the Wind Ceremony event. We will be having a Chili cookoff so get those chili recipes out and mix up a batch if you would like to participate! Festoons!! Keep your eye on the website for more information as the event date quickly approaches.

I am Fiesta Key bound . . . your "Commodora"!












 



2010 Wind Ceremony



The 2010 Wind Ceremony will take place on Saturday, March 20. We will have a Chili Cook-off this year so break out your best recipe and bring a batch (at least a gallon please) if you would like to participate in the contest. If you do not wish to participate, please bring something to go with the Chili, your own special dish or a dessert. The Club will provide chopped onions, cheese, Fritos, crackers and softdrinks.

Pack your coolers, bring your chairs and come toss your wishes to the Wind Gods so we may be blessed with another year of windy days at Shell Point Beach!!

Registration starts at 3:00pm
Chili Judging at 5:00pm
Dinner at 6:00pm
Swami & the Festoons around 8:00pm

If you have any questions, call Donna McMahon at 877-3998 or email dmac3998@embarqmail.com.





Our Dad Taught Us A Few Things

Chuck's (Swami) Dad past away last Sunday in his sleep a few hours after having lunch with Chuck and his brother GG...he was 92. This is a poem he wrote and read at the service.

OUR DAD TAUGHT US A FEW THINGS
By: CAMERON CHARLES “CHUCK” KOHLHAGEN JR.

OUR DAD TAUGHT US TO WALK
I EVEN THINK HE TAUGHT US TO TALK

DAD TAUGHT US TO RIDE A BIKE
TO BUILD AND FLY A KITE

DAD TAUGHT US TO BE KIND TO ANIMALS ALL
AND PICK OURSELVES UP AFTER A FALL

HE TAUGHT US HOW TO TIE OUR SHOE
AND WALK THROUGH A PASTURE AND NOT STEP IN POO

HE TAUGHT US TO FISH AND BAIT A HOOK
TO FRY EGGS & BACON LIKE A SHORT ORDER COOK

DAD TAUGHT US TO EAT WITH A KNIFE AND FORK
YOU KNOW, CUT YOUR STEAK WITHOUT LOOKING LIKE A DORK

OUR DAD TAUGHT US TO COOK ON THE GRILL
IF YOU DON’T GET IT BY NOW, DAD THOUGHT EATIN’ WAS A THRILL

OUR DAD TAUGHT US TO SWIM
AND SHOOT BASKETBALLS IN THE GYM

DAD TAUGHT US TO DRIVE AND CHANGE A TIRE
GO CAMPING AND BUILD A FIRE

I KNOW HE TAUGHT US TO GRIN
BECAUSE WHEN WE DO, EVERYONE SAYS WE LOOK LIKE HIM

DAD TAUGHT US, I THINK, TO HAVE A FIT
BUT ALSO TO STICK TO THAT JOB AND DO IT

AS WE GET OLDER THIS MIGHT SOUND LIKE LITTLE STUFF
BUT ADD IT ALL UP, TO MAKE IT THROUGH, WHEN THINGS GET RUFF
