Club Valentine's Night

| | Comments (0)

On Saturday afternoon we went out to the club. 

Backstepping a minute.  On Wednesday during the storms, a mini tornado swept through the club area.  Lots of trees were down around the club.  Including one that had our neighbour's power cord strung up through.  It pulled our power box out of the ground before the cable snapped.

Fortunately none of the caravans were damaged and our fridge (which we still haven't fixed) wasn't on.

But the cords holding our annex snapped, and the tarp flew away with tent poles still attached.  They were flung in all directions, including one that impaled our neighbour's garbage bin through its lid - while underneath a pretty big awning.  We have no idea how it did it.  Again, fortunately, the tarp wasn't damaged, and all we'll need is some new guy ropes and we'll be set.

John had fixed everything up by the time we got there so that was good.

In the evening was a Valentine's night, yes, a week too late - oh well!

After dinner was charades which was a lot of fun.  It was meant to be teams but somehow I switched tables somewhere in the middle.  But since I won the majority of the games, they declared me the winner :)  I shared the box of chocolates I got with everyone.  We also had a raffle with two prizes.  I had tickets B52-54.  After someone won the first prize, I called out "B52!" to the person drawing the tickets - and freakishly, that's what they pulled out!!  Couldn't have happened if I'd planned it!  So won another box of chocolates :)
