Hi Friends and Members.

I hope you have all had a great summer and enjoyed some travel, whether it was near or far.
Now that school has started again it’s time to think about getting together to catch up.

I have reserved a shelter at Huguenot Park off of Robious Rd. for October 1st 3PM-8PM

The club will provide tablecloths, cups, plates, plastic ware, and bottled water (sorry can’t do coffee) and hopefully some good weather. If we should have inclement weather that day where we are not able to have it I can call Chesterfield County the following Monday and get it rescheduled. Other than that it cannot be changed or refunded.

Please everyone bring food to share. Please send me an email to let me know if you will be coming so that we have some idea of how many to expect and if you want to let me know what you will bring in the way of food and dessert that would be great too. Another reason to RSVP is so we will be able to contact everyone that morning if for some reason we wind up cancelling.

Time: October 1st 3:00-8:00 PM
Place: Huguenot Park Shelter #1 It is the Huguenot Park entrance from Robious Rd. and the shelter will be on the right side. We had this same shelter many years ago as some of you might remember.

11 tables in the shelter
Horseshoe Pit (I do have a set so those who are interested can play) We could even play for a prize.
I also have a Bocce Set I will bring if anyone knows how to play that.
Grill is available but you have to bring charcoal, utensils and everything – probably too much trouble
Volleyball 80’ from our shelter (you should bring a ball if you want to play)
Playground 400’ up the road
Restrooms 150’ up the road
Handicap accessible

So that was the October event. Now we skip to December/January. The Walton Lake Clubhouse is very busy this season and has already been rented for the 3 Saturdays in December, the 4th being Christmas Eve. We have pretty much ruled out Sundays because we find that most people can’t make it until 2:00 or after and want to be home by dark. Therefore, I have booked the Clubhouse for New Year’s Day from 12:00-4:00 and will await feedback from all of you. If anyone knows of other venues available at reasonable rates, please let me know. I understand it is appropriate in Denmark to celebrate Christmas well into January.

Finn Jensen informs me that the Danish Christmas service in Northern Virginia is December 18th. We can send more details to anyone interested in going. You get to sing Danish carols and they have coffee and cakes afterwards. I went once and it was most enjoyable bringing back memories of my childhood in Denmark.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
