Canadian Club news

Like the Canada Geese, the Canadians are flocking back to SunBird. November is our favorite month to begin our winter vacation. Whether we are escaping the cold, rain, or snow, we so look forward to the sunshine, clear blue skies, and the warmth of the Valley of the Sun.

Fall events, as in past years, include the annual CRAB (Canadians, Roadrunners, Americans, and Bandits) Golf Tournament on Nov. 16 where the Canadians test their skills against the Roadrunners, Americans, and Bandits. The sign-up sheet will be in the Pro Shop by Oct. 31.

Don’t miss the annual community auction at 2 p.m. on Nov. 15 on the patio. Treasures and keepsakes can be found, and it is a great time to reconnect with our many friends.

This is closely followed by the Grey Cup (the Canadian Superbowl) game and social on Nov. 24, in the ballroom. The cost is $5 to watch the game on the 12-foot screen and includes burgers at half time.

In the new year, we will get together for the pork loin BBQ on Feb. 13 and our wind-up Great Canadian Golf Tournament on March 15.

Summer camp is on!
