The club held its annual Christmas Party on December 6th at Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club in Oxnard. Approximately 49 members, family and guests attended. Our thanks go to Gloria Brown and Linda Lockhart for making the arrangements with the Yacht Club and planning the party. Gloria Brown acted as the Master of Ceremonies and was assisted by Joe Brown.

We spent the first hour socializing with new and old friends. This was followed by a delicious lunch provided by PCYC. The meal was a choice of tri-tip, salmon or chicken. The food was delicious and the servings were generous.
As we came in we were given a ticket to be used for door prizes. Door prize drawing for gifts was handled by Joe Brown and Linda Lockhart. We would like to give a special thanks to Mike and Nancy Newton for their contribution to the club that made purchase of the door prizes possible. If you were lucky enough to have your number drawn you went to the prize table and picked which ever one you wanted.
Our musical entertainment was provided by Sam Hobel and the "Sam the Piano Man" music group. They played Christmas music to sing and dance to. One of their members had a suit case full of different kinds of hats that matched the tune they were playing and that kept everyone laughing.
Next came the Lawn Bowling Golden Awards. This was thought up by Gloria Brown and Linda Lockhart to recognize the special achievement of several of our members. The awards were made by Gloria and Linda and were very original. This was a take off on the Golden Globe Awards from TV.
