“SUPERBOWL WEEKEND” was the theme for the Caloosa Winnies meeting February 2 – 5, 2013 at Lazy Days RV Resort in Seffner Florida. We were happy to share the weekend with members of the Buccaneer Winnies, Spacecoast Winnies and Pete & Gayle Putman from Funtime Travelers. 35 coaches enjoyed all the festivities beginning with Happy Hour on Saturday at 4:00pm. We also welcomed guests Larry & Doris Pigg who actually joined as members before the weekend ended! They were recruited by our new members Ed & Carolyn Thomas. Both couples actually bid on the same coach at an RV show! Larry & Doris won, but Ed & Carolyn got one a little later! We’re delighted to have them all as new members!


Saturday evening we all traveled to nearby Golden Corral for a huge feast at their buffet! After dinner we all returned to the Rec Hall for a game prepared by Chris Ross which was played in teams. It brought lots of laughs as we all competed for a prize of chocolate footballs!


Sunday morning the caterer at the park put on breakfast for us which was a huge spread to get our day off to a good start. In the afternoon we played Bingo with the winners splitting the pot of money collected.


Lazy Days set up a big screen TV in the Rec Hall for us which was awesome! Everyone brought heavy Hors d’Oeuvres – you never saw so many tables filled with such great food!! As the game progressed with everyone watching and rooting for their favorite team the co-hosts were setting out ice cream and toppings for half time treats! Jerry Miller organized a football pool for the winners based on the game score which added to the fun! Most everyone stayed around until the game ended many hours later – and of course we enjoyed all the wacky commercials on the big screen!


Monday morning we held our Potluck Breakfast – again with tables filled with great food! The “Team Meeting” (business meetings) were held at 10:00am with much discussion about the upcoming March Rally and our parking duties. David Nobert and Pete Wightman outlined what the tasks will be and have organized a schedule to make the parking go very smoothly.


In the afternoon many members went to visit a local Manatee Viewing Area, thanks to Bud Swift for organizing the event. There was a nice museum and guides to give information and answer questions.


Back at the Rec Hall it was time for Happy Hour at 4:00pm, followed by dinner of “Walking Tacos” prepared by the hosts! This was a fun event – some have never had this treat so it was a nice surprise for them! The members brought dishes to compliment the tacos including GREAT desserts! Chris Ross had more games for us to play – a Memory Game of looking at a table of football items and returning to seats to try to remember what was there! Then another relay game by teams of carrying a football across the room on a spoon and passing the spoon off to teammates. Lots of laughs and cheers for the teams and it was a fun game!


Tuesday morning was our traditional donut & bagel breakfast before we all traveled home. We like to have visitors to our group so be watching our website. Also check the website for our schedule.
