Annual TCRCM Banquet

TCRCM Year End Banquet, Saturday January 13, 2018 at CG Public House-5:00 PM


At the October Membership meeting all in attendance supported a recommendation to have our year end/new year banquet at the CG Public House, the former Country Gentlemen, which is on South Clearwater in Kennewick. I received confirmation today that they can support us and we will have our own room without the noise of the other areas of the restaurant. We will also order off the menu, although they can put together a buffet if we wanted but the price is a bit steep. If anyone prefers a buffet please come to the meeting next week and we can discuss that option. The room is scheduled for us from 5:00 - 7:00 PM/

The agenda for the banquet has not as yet been established and if you have any recommendations as to what you would like to include please let me know and also copy all of those on cc of this email.

Please mark your calendars for this family get together, and I also do not expect any NFL playoff competition after the way the Seahawks played yesterday.

Hope to see you there, and we will ask for an RSVP for those who plan to attend prior to the banquet to support final planning.

New TCRCM Sign Installation Complete


The new sign installation is complete and it looks fantastic. All of the participants in the Sagebrush (WINDY) Smackdown commented on high nice it is and easy to see when trying to find our entrance.

Again we all need to thank Bob Anderson and George Vargo both for the quality and quantity of the work they did. Bob also wanted to thank Rob Opgenorth, Bruce McDannold, and Mark Denson (our newest member) for helping with the installation. The sign is very heavy, easily 300+ lbs. So thank you Rob, Bruce and Mark.

Mark, I also want to welcome you to TCRCM, and we usually do not put new members to work on their first day in the club.

Some members were worried about the sign surviving the wind. I stopped and checked it on the way out today, and it is still solidly stuck in the sand/dirt.

We also need to recognize Brett for having the sign made and also a special thanks to Craig and Terry Ann Christensen for their donation to have the sign made.

There should be no excuses anymore by anyone who cannot see our beautiful sign at the entrance to the field-----No more HRMC sign getting all the attention.

Synopsis of: Memorial Fun Fly- Pot Luck


I want to thank all of you for attending and also the wives that were able to attend. Wives always class the group of us up. It was a great success again even though for the first hour or so we were all under the shelter. Of course 'togetherness' is a good thing. The food was great and no one went away hungry.

Lyle gets the most flights award with that hot rod Russian airplane. Hope you all had a good time and look forward to seeing you there next year.
