Potluck and Game Night

  • May 3, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's do a potluck and game night! Space is limited - RSVP early!

This event is at capacity. Please join the wait list if you are interested - there will be people who will change their RSVP.

Bring a dish to pass, with serving spoons, bring a game to play. We have a full kitchen, with stove, frig, & microwave. There is a large gas grill we can use, if you want to bring something to grill for the group. 

Bring your swimsuit and towels if you want to try out the Pool or Jacuzzi. This is a great opportunity to meet new friends while playing games and having some good food. 

Nice billiard table. If anyone wants to play. We can play teams.

This party is BYOB. Alcohol has to be on the down low, per club house rules so make sure you pour beer/wine into cups. Keep beer / wine bottles out of sight. 

We are asking for a $3 donation at the door for rental of the clubhouse. 

When you sign up, post what you plan to bring. Here are some ideas:

- Need appetizers, entrees, and desserts; as always

- Salads or fruit are always good

- Feel free to pick up something at Costco or Vons if you are busy

- We need someone to supply the music: portable stereo, speakers, and a good selection from their mp3 player

- We need someone to supply the plates, cups, plastic ware

- Asking for everyone's cooperation to help clean up and leave room as found so we don't get stuck forfeiting the cleaning deposit. 

If you are going to use GPS to locate the clubhouse, set the address for 1313 Morningview Drive, Escondido, CA 92026, which is the (approximate) address of the driveway to the clubhouse off Morning View Drive (you will see the signs for Reidy Creek on the right as you are driving on West El Norte Parkway, there will be an IHOP, & Vons across the street).

Driving up Morning View look on your right for the 35 mph pedestrian sign and go to the first driveway that you come to after sign. To the right up driveway to the top you'll see the clubhouse to your right. There's an American flag flying and there are multiple parking places. There's a ribbon blocking off 2 parking places and then 2 reserved spots next to the ribbon. The remainder of the parking is for us and there should be enough parking for all

Look for sign saying Reidy Creek Phase II off of Morning View: 

Go up the steep driveway:

At top of Drive see clubhouse on right.  Look for parking adjacent to your left. Park on either side of car park at the open places. Large  parking spaces available.

I had the best time and Tina said it all in her post. Every one who made a home made dish, thank you for the extra effort, the ones I tried were delicious.

    Thanks to everyone who came and contributed to the event. You are all such fabulous people and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all more as time goes by.
    The food was spectacular, the games fab, and your attitudes with pitching in and leaving the club house clean was so appreciated.
    Thanks Kevin for the yummy grilled chicken and for organizing the meetup. Nan, home made Toll house chocolate chip cookies? OMG swoon.
    I'm thoroughly exhausted and my ankle is playing up, icing and elevating and watching All Creatures Great & Small before bed.
    Check out the next concert this Wednesday at the Calif Center for the Arts Escondido. There are only 2 more free concerts for the season until this coming fall.

      May 3, 2014

  • Meryl

    if anyone is early I'll be there at 5 or a few min after.

    May 3, 2014

  • Jennifer C.

    I will bring a vacuum

    May 3, 2014

    • Rick E

      Yeah, Baby! Vacuum Wars!! Bring It ON!!!

      May 3, 2014

    • Jennifer C.

      Mine was $12 from Amvets. Whatcha got?

      May 3, 2014

  • Meryl

    Hey all, If you have extra plates, cups, plastic wear bring it as u never know. I have lots but might run out. Ditto beverages although you're meant to BYOB, if u want to share bring extra.
    What I really need to ask is can anyone bring an upright vacuum with them to run over the carpet in club house about 9 or 9:30?
    It just needs to have a light once over in the club house before we vacate for the evening.
    Also will need strongish ppl to help unfold and set the tables upright & position them and unfold chairs. Lastly we need to clean up and I'll ask anyone who's strong to take the black plastic trash bags over to the nearest dupster. P/U or SUV with room would be helpful. With everyone's cooperation we might want to make this a regular thing with the pool and all.

    May 3, 2014

    • Rick E

      It's loud, obnoxious, won't stand up on its own, and when it comes to work it really sucks. Oh, wait that's both me and my vacuum, but I'll bring it.

      May 3, 2014

    • Rick E

      I forgot to mention "Looks Like Something From a 1950's Sci-Fi Movie". Oh, that's still us.

    I can come early to help set up. What time would be good?

    May 3, 2014

    • Meryl

      Kevin is going to arrive at 5 so 5 or after is good and you and he can arrange stuff. I guess I'll be there at 5 as well. Thanks for your help.

      May 3, 2014

  • Rick E

    So, do we have enough cups, plates, forks, napkins, etc.? Or is everyone just bringing their own?

    May 3, 2014

    • Tim B.

      And napkins.

      May 3, 2014

    • Rick E

      Thanks Tim. I'll bring some paper towels.

      May 3, 2014

  • Rick E

    Is there a grass area? How about bocce ball? Doesn't work so well in the pool.

    May 2, 2014

    • Meryl

      No there isn't a grassy area. Although we should think of a time when we all can get together somewhere and play croquet.

      May 2, 2014

    • Rick E

      Then can I bring my water blaster??

      May 3, 2014

      May 2, 2014

  • Meryl

    I believe we're maxed out at 40. Looking forward to a fun time. As this is a party on private property it isn't acceptable to just pop in with out a Yes RSVP. If you feel you missed out and would like to attend then please contact Kevin or me via message. Thanks for your understand and cooperation. Sorry but there are no exceptions.

    May 2, 2014

    • Tim B.

      OK, per Kevin, scratch that...I'll bring a bucket of chicken

      May 2, 2014

    • Meryl

      It is BYOB especially alcohol but it would be nice to have some extra Gingle Ale with sugar not chemical sweetener and Tim if you do want to bring some it's fine, with the heat we're all thirsty.

      May 2, 2014

  • Angela

    Will bring LCR game...no need to bring money for this game...will provide candy pieces....Thank you Meryl for providing very specific directions :-) Looking forward to a fun evening :-)

    May 2, 2014

  • AL

    Sorry all, I'll have to pass on Saturday. I have a guest coming to town at the last minute. I would still send my famous Deviled eggs, if someone lives near by and lets me know they'll pick them up. I hate to disappoint you all. Al (858)[masked]

    April 30, 2014

    • Meryl

    Thinking of bringing interesting craft beer which I would love to share if anyone else is interested in sampling (and yes, I'll keep it low). Pool in the pool sounds like a fun new game especially since it will be quite warm - maybe we could do some real pool games??

    April 30, 2014

    • Meryl

      Sure I'd try a glass Kathleen.

      April 30, 2014

    • Tim B.

      I'd like to share some of this too...I have a really great bottle of Old Stock Ale, but it might be hard to keep this quiet because it has a cork...

      May 2, 2014

    Do we need to bring extra coolers and ice?

    April 30, 2014

    • Meryl

      Maybe but there is a frig and freezer. Ice would be good. We also need some non alcoholic beverages.

      May 2, 2014

  • Nan

    Kevin has agreed to grill some of the corn on the cob and I am bringing real butter for the corn. If anyone wants anything other than real butter please bring it with you.

    1 · May 1, 2014

  • Carol

    I'll bring Greek Pasta Salad - are paper plates/utensils provided or should I bring some?

    1 · May 1, 2014

    • Meryl

      I have quite a bit but if you would bring some additional it might be needed along with cups and plastic cutlery.

      May 1, 2014

  • Nan

      April 30, 2014

  • Nan

    I will bring 3 decks of cards to play Carioca. It is a Latin form of rummy, 2 to 6 can play with the 3 decks. I have printed out the rules we will be playing by. This game is a lot of fun and very popular among Latins.

    April 28, 2014

    • Kate D.

      Is it like canasta? My sister and I played that with 2 decks when I was a teenager, and I remember nothing of it now.

      April 28, 2014

    • Nan

      I love canasta but don't remember how to play. But no, canasta has partners, this does not.

      April 29, 2014
