Hollywood Riviera

Sportsman's Club



April 2001


Sportsman Phil Pelland passed away Friday, April 6th. Services were held Tuesday April 17 at the First Christian Church in Torrance. Please join us in extending our sympathies and best wishes to Margaret and the rest of the Pelland family.

The rest of the club's year will be very busy. Next week, April 25th is an early meeting (7:00pm) for beer tasting. There will be a selection of beers for sampling, as well as some well-chosen foods to compliment the selections. As with other dinner meetings, there will a nominal charge to cover the expenses. $5.00 will pay for the food, beers to taste, and any other drinks for the evening. Ron Perez is chairing the event, and it should live up to the expectations he set with last year's tasting.

There will be a special addition to the event this year. Allen Watt has a pair of stereo speakers (wooden cabinets, 30" high, stand-alone speakers) that will be auctioned off that evening. The proceeds will go to the Club, and the speakers will be hooked up that night so all bidders will have a chance to hear the speakers before placing their bids.


Saturday and Sunday April 28 & 29 are the correct dates for this year's Redondo Beach Fair (Frontier Days). If you had marked your calendars based on previous newsletters, please make the change to these dates. Al Ortiz is the Chairman for the event, and we will need plenty of workers to make Funnel Cakes for the assembled masses. Please be sure to sign up for a work shift so we can be sure the event is a success.

Other fast approaching events:
Scholarship night will be May 23rd, and the Pancake Breakfast will follow that weekend (Saturday, May 26). Make sure you leave some time for both events. The final meeting of the year will be the Installation dinner. This year we will return to the same location as last year, Ellison's Chateau on Hawthorne Blvd. Robin Sawyer has made the arrangements, and it should again be terrific evening for Sportsmen and their wives.


Steak and Joke night was a resounding winner this year. Roger Greene, last year's winner as a new member, chaired the evening, and proceeded to pass the crown to another new member. Ray Dracoules was not only had the winning joke of the night, he also scored the runner up joke. (No one told him beforehand that now he has to chair the event next year.)
