Christmas outing at the Indian Waters RV Resort in Indio
Wagon masters: Jim & Nancy Young, Ron & Marilyn Walker, Steve & Debbie Pavich, and Jay & Evelyn Morrissey

A total of 15 Elk-Ender RVs descended on the Indian Waters RV Resort the end of November into the first weekend of December, with many arriving by Wednesday to miss the rain forecast for Thursday and enjoy the weekend. The weather was a little windy mostly sunny for the entire weekend unlike the rain at the Lodge. We were fortunate to be visited during the weekend by Barbara Eddings and Pete and Debbie Lavario. In addition, Orville and Mary Ann invited guest Richard and Renee Caldwell and Steve and Debbie Pavich invited Nancy Numan to join us for dinner and games Friday night.

We celebrated Thursday morning with an excellent waffle breakfast provided by the resort and on Friday an impromptu breakfast at the Young rig. Friday afternoon provided free time to enjoy the local area, lively conversations, putting a large jig-saw puzzle together and welcoming afternoon arrivals. Friday night we enjoyed an Italian dinner of Baked Chicken Pasta, salad, garlic bread and desserts from other Elk-Enders. The evening concluded with a game of Skru Your Neighbor with the winners, Mary Ann Ratliff and Nancy Young. Saturday morning a delicious Pot Luck breakfast with many wonderful treats.

After Saturday's pot-luck breakfast many members spent the day shopping at the local Swap Meet, the Tamale Festival, or relaxing in the camp ground. The traditional Baseball game was played indoors with the Ladies winning in the 9th inning 12 to 11 a tough loss for the men. We enjoyed appetizers and liquid refreshments, watching others play Pickle Ball, while many continued work on the jig-saw puzzle. Following dinner our normal meeting was thanking our host Wagon Masters for a great weekend. Of course Santa Sherriff, Steve Pavich, arrived noting all the good and not so good collecting fines to further support the Purple Pig. A rousing game of Left-Right-Center was played with numerous cheers and Bah-Humbugs amongst our players. Sue Catlin was the ultimate winner.

Thanks to Steve and Debbie Pavich for recording the outing with pictures.
