Adventures way outside B-Town

This weeks adventure takes place outside of B-Town. Roger and I traveled to sunny San Diego for the Mission Trails Mens Golf Club Classic that Roger participated in. We jumped off the plane and the festivities started with the Derby. A fun jump off to the tournament that consists of all of the golfers teeing off at the same time on hole one.

Whoever gets a bogie or better moves on to the second hole and so on. It went seven holes and my horse won the race! Roger is the 2011 Derby winner! Now if that luck continueus on to the main tournament.

Now which one is my ball?

We got to see some really great friends, Mark and Tamala Cerff were terrific hosts and opened their home to us. Many thanks for your hospitality. Newell and Cheryl Bowen were up from Belize. Cheryl was the event Photographer and did a terrific job. Alongside her trusted assistant Cooper! So great to see them all.
My bestie Alisa and Russ came up to the club and there were adult beverages after the Derby. Too much fun was had by all. We really miss the guys from the mens club and the comraderie there.

Will and Leslie with Tam and Markie at Mountain Mikes Pizza to end the evening.
Tam and Cheryl, pimpin those tickets.
On to day two and the start of the main tournament! Our job was to sell raffle tickets for the awards dinner that would be held at the end of the tournament. Amd to watch for a hole in one on the tenth tee for this prize!
Alas I don't have a new Ford Edge in my driveway.
The sun was shining and the weather was great all weekend. The tournament was a success and everyone had a great time. However, Rogers luck didn't go through the weekend and he didn't win the car or the tournament. On to the Ceremonies!! The prizes for our raffle were lined up and ready to be won.

Mumbles did a super job of putting together the prize baskets.
We won a foursome of golf at a San Diego course and a golf club of some sort. I am told it's a good one.
After the prizes was dinner and the usual BS sessions that include mass quantities of beer.

All in all we had a most fabulous time in SoCo, and got to see alot of our very much missed friends . Unfortunately we did not get to see everyone we wanted to and I apologize to those we missed. I got to spend most of the day Saturday with my cousin Candace and drug her along to the golf course.  Our friend Scottie just opened a great sports bar in Santee that we visited on Friday for lunch and Saturday for Dinner, Landres. The food and service were superb and the place is set up beautifully. They are just getting off the ground, so give them a visit and try it out. I recommend the pulled pork sandwich, yummy.
I will be giving them more space in the next blog, but for now they are located at 70 Town Center Parkway at Mission Gorge in Santee. Link to their site here for info and menus:
Ask for Scottie and tell him Rog and Denise sent you.
Til next time, let the adventures continue, the Fourth of July is right around the corner and Three Tree Point will be rockin.
