Every Friday Hiwan is having a theme pool party with family buffet, organized games and special bar offerings until dark. The energy of the event is terrific and the best Fridays lie ahead. We start at 6:00 p.m. and go til 8:00 and later.

I was talking to Kenyon, our pool manager who was on the verge of shutting down the pool at 6:00 last night as the schedule states is closing time, telling him that the 50 or so members there for the swim team pool party wanted to stay for drinks, pizza and some conversation. I told him that he could make this call himself when the weather and member participation warranted it. The Rain in June has set a new record and so we have spent a month dodging thunder and lightning. I want to do all I can to make the most fun for the membership in July assuming the weather will cooperate. I took the swim team picture and I looked over the result in the clubhouse on my computer, We have a really great bunch of kids for the swim team and Alexis and Emily are doing a bang up job with them.

When I got up on Saturday, June 20, I looked at the sky (cloudy) and the thermometer (59 degrees). What a bad day for a pool party. Erik and James went to work getting all the services moved to our new date of Sunday, June 28 at noon.
We always hate to cancel and/or reschedule events but the club spends a lot of money on these gala events. So we will see many of you next Sunday! Sure as rain! Thunder and lightning at 2:00 p.m. Made the right call.
Meanwhile this week I am filming video for the website. Summer on.

Our good friends from Altitude are filming a show at Hiwan today ( Thursday, June 11) and the weather was great until the end when the Hiwan express made a visit. Scott Hastings and Kyle Adams were the MC's and we all had a good time. We also made some important points about Hiwan. The inveterate golfer and the family guy can be equally comfortable here. Boy, have clubs changed since my first General Manager job in 1971! Cigars, whiskey and no kids except on holidays. This is a lot more fun. You can see our first show on Altitude starting on July 14.

I am hearing more good things about the new lunch and dinner menus. Plan a visit to try some of the new things, My favorite is the new orange and fennel salad with goat cheese and a fennel infused vinaigrette. I don't think I have had a salad this good in years.
