The Park held it's annual Sponsored Golf Tournament next door at Roadrunner Dunes Golf course. And the results are in:

We had great participation with 10 teams of 4 playing!

When all was said and done - two teams came in at 11 under so a play-off was held!

The team of Don Nobert, Fred Blackman, Jim Yockey and Tom Seaward won the shoot-out to take the tournament!

The team of John McKittrick, Spud Gephart, Tom Ryan and Ken Mapes came in second place.

The tournament contestants enjoyed a nice lunch in the Clubhouse after their golf!

Meanwhile for the non-golfers Joshua Tree National Park is in bloom.

This is the "greenest" I have ever seen the park - the rainy winter was worth it!

Look hard and you will find some cactus blooming!

We have also been blessed with some wonderful sunsets in the RV Park!

Change of schedule info - tomorrow evening at Happy Hour we will be getting the kitchen ready to close down for the season, so FREE MEAL - bring your plates and utensils and enjoy what we have from the freezer!

Still planning things to do through April!

Blog Update - St. Patricks Day Dinner Dance

The clubhouse turned green for our annual St Patty's Day Dinner and Dance. We had a wonderful traditional dinner with corned beef and cabbage with carrots and potatoes, salad and fresh bread and a wonderful dessert.

We had a nice crowd of about 50 people, quite a few will be leaving in the coming week or so, but our activities will continue right on through April for those of us staying longer and the many northbound travelers who pass through.

We had several firsts tonight - lots of pictures and fun on the dance floor!

YMCA Got the dance floor rockin!

Mick Jagger would have been impressed with a little Impromptu Karaoke to Satisfaction!

Tons of great dance music!

Then our DJ rolled out the Soul Train Stroll!

Even Jimmy Stevens hit the dance floor!

The evening ran late and slowed down a little at the end!

As we say goodbye to some of our winter friends, we wish them safe travels and adventures and can't wait to see them again next year!

Stay Tuned still lots of fun left at Twentynine Palms RV Resort this season!

Blog Update - Annual Can-Am Golf Challenge

Golf is an important part of winter life here at Twentynine Palms RV Resort. We are fortunate to have a very nice 9 hole regulation course right next door and many of our winter residents participate daily.

Every Wednesday we have a golf scramble and there is also regularly scheduled mens and ladies play.

One of the highlights of the season is the Annual Can-Am Challenge and Banquet. This year the tournament was held on Monday and the banquet and results on Wednesday in our clubhouse.

The park is very Canadian Friendly with many of our snowbirds making the long trek down from our Northern Border.

A few pics on the golf course!

Always Friendly fun on the course!

The Banquet, the crowd gathers!

Some great burgers on the grill!

Served with all the fixins and baked beans!

The results were announced and lo and behold the Canadians captured the trophy back!

The Canadian Team!

The Canadian Cheer!

The American Team!

You will note there are a bunch more people on the American team and the intricate calculations for the tournament winner was created by the Canadian Captain! The US Captain has asked for a recall and swears next year to win the trophy back!
