Annual meeting

The flag is flying and the time is here for the annual meeting of the LBI curling club.

Pre-meeting cocktails and awaiting the arrival of the rest of the crew.

The annual meeting buffet. Ribs, shrimp, crab cakes, cheese, salami, perogies, wings, etc.

More cocktails and elections. Noticably absent is the new VP, Paul. Hard to turn down a position when you are not there. Bob is the ice maker and Pat is the league coordinator. Andrea remains as the Prez.
Also discussed was a new pin design. Need to work on that next.

LBI CC out for a pre meeting meal

Clammy is our newest member. Wants to come in as a skip. The hat just might make that happen.

The meeting has ended

This year was the longest annual meeting. It started just after 5pm on Wed. and ran till 10am on Monday. Of course the actual "meeting" only went about 10 minutes. The rest was the pre- and post- meeting festivities. Which were a blast as always. The addition of an extra "house" helped. There were all the usual founding members in attendance. Next year will be even better.

New Members

The LBI CC annual meeting was last night. We voted in a few new members. Welcome to Pat and Bob Bridgeman who were nice enough to host the meeting. Also, Marsha Fox which had been an oversight by us.

It was a wonderful evening of food, laughs and fun. Ray Ray made wings and Davey made a delicious pulled pork. There was also some goat ribs that chef Dave did not like but where quite tasty. There was BBQ shrimp, kielbasa and munchies. Also, a nice combo of pork and pork. Pork tenderloin wrapped into pinwheels with bacon. Then expertly grilled by Dave.

Most of the plovers are heading home today. It is a yucky day so not too bad to leave. The group here is hanging till tomorrow.

WOW, we can buy more stuff


Pretty cool huh? 3 of 4 from the Coach Ray brood has branched out into hand painting glasses. The design is not quite final but will be available on the pilsner glass shown or a pint glass or a wine glass. Price is yet to be determined but that doesn't matter. Imagine quaffing your favorite adult beverage on the deck overlooking the bay at LBI CC headquarters this fall. Or on the deck overlooking the ocean from the secondary headquarters.

Dishwasher safe - probably not, beer safe - you bet!

Order soon as these one of kind glasses will be going fast and the production team of 3 of 4 and BF will need some time to produce them.

Maybe we can get them to branch out into travel coffee mugs and plastic wine glasses (needed by a certain plover).

Contact Coach Ray for more info.

Final New Years post

Well, it was a lot of fun that is for sure. Sunday morning was all about the omelets, mimosas and packing up. There are a bunch of pictures HERE of what may soon become the new LBI CC headquarters.

A fun day

My sister and brother-in-law stopped in for a quick visit, then we went to lunch at one of the restaurants that is open. They also happen to be one of the award winners for chowder each year. Really good chowder. And of course very nice company (hi Sis)

Then we ran up to the lighthouse to grab some hats and take a couple of quick pics. Can you tell it is still cold and windy?

Then we drove down to the South end of the Island to Holgate. Took a bit of a walk on the beach and captured the above picture of what we think is a Plover!!

There were some other plovers there as well but when we tried to get close to them they kept flying away. Sally plover was heard to exclaim "stupid birds, lets go get a drink, fuck'em." To which the Pres replied "that is the true plover spirit".

Off to Buckalew's for a couple of bevvy's. Foxy met us there as his day was over. Had a very nice martini which is made with gin not vodka as Foxy explained.

Back to the house to catch the pretty sunset and perhaps have another cocktail or three.
