|More people arriving|
All the time more people were arriving. We ended up with approximately 60 including spouses and children.
There was fishing, bean bag toss, kayaking, chess, scrabble, dominoes and other board games. Or one could just relax, watch the water or watch the grass grow. Lt. Johansen encouraged all the warriors to participate in several activities. He said to put a check mark beside their name on the sign in sheet every time they completed an activity. At the end of the day everyone with 5 check marks would be put in a drawing for a prize to be announced at the time of the drawing. (One night's lodging in Fredericksburg.)
As it got closer to noon and became obvious not everyone was able to attend due to appointments, some called spouses to come join the outing. Davila's Barbeque catered lunch for us. They served promptly at noon. It was a nice surprise to have green beans and parsley potatoes rather than slaw and beans. Very good food and friendly people.
We loaded up the car and left for home a little before two. The "party" was still going strong.
Special Thanks to:
