February Monthly Dinner–Gigi’s Italian in St. Pete

In February, we enjoyed an Italian dinner at Gigi’s restaurant in St. Petersburg.  Conflicts developed for some at the last minute so the party dropped to six diners.  We had a good time, some of us enjoying the unexpected special of Wine Wednesday.

Entrees we chose included  eggplant parmigiana, rigatoni salsiccia, stuffed shells and a ribeye steak.

We had a nice dinner and are looking forward to the next monthly dinner!

February Monthly Meeting

We had a great meeting last night, with about 27 in attendance.  We introduced the new slate of officers for the year and met people new to the group.  We discussed our upcoming kayaking trip to Three Sisters to see the manatees.  We also got a quick demo of Slack, our new communication forum.

Our featured speaker was Debbie from the camping department at Bill Jackson’s.  She had many interesting stories to share as she showed us all kinds of camping equipment to use on trips.  We learned about stoves, chairs, hammocks, backpacks, pouches for packing items, socks and more. She did a great job and gave us ideas of things to take on the annual Fort De Soto camping trip.


First meeting of 2019

Our first meeting for 2019 will be Wednesday, February 20th.  We’ll gather at 6:30 at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park and the meeting will start shortly after.  Our featured speaker will be Debbie from the camping department at Bill Jackson’s. She will give us some camping tips.  We’ll also get a demo of Slack, our new communications forum, and we’ll have a “round table” planning session to hear what trips and events are of interest to the group for 2019, in addition to those we’ve already planned.

September Monthly Meeting

We will have our monthly meeting on Wednesday, September 19th at 6:30 p.m. at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park.

The speaker this month will be Shelby Bachnik from MirroLure.  She is the daughter of the founder of this awesome artificial lure that many of us use to catch fish!  She will be doing a demonstration in the pool at Bill Jackson’s on how to use these lures.

Hope to see you there and bring a friend!
