***AFTER BBQ/SWIM REPORT: JimRob comes to LA!***
LA CHAPTER | 8/11/03 | Diotima

Posted on 08/11/2003 10:54:47 AM PDT by diotima

So Cal Freepers:  AFTER BBQ REPORT

Sunday, August 11 the So. Cal freepers (and special out of town visitors) had a BBQ/Pool Party in honor of Jim Robinson. Jim was in the LA area to attend the NFRA convention and present the Reagan Award to this years winner. Bob J and I attended the luncheon at the Reagan Library and Bob presented this year's winner with the award, the Young Americas Foundation. Saundra Duffy was also there with her husband (his FR name escapes me).


Saturday we prepared for the party.


On Sunday, Freepers started arriving here ready for some sun, fun, Gray Davis bashing, and swimming.  A sun-burned DoughtyOne, managed the grill and helped feed around 60 people. I will let the attendees come in and give their reports but I had a great time!  Thanks to everyone who brought food, wine, beer, chips, (we have more food here than when we started!)

Your memory makes mine look horrid.

I have to constantly write myself sticky notes or I will forget something. And names.....memorizing names takes lots of effort.

And I am 20!

I wish I coudl remember as many people as you did at one time.

The crew consisted of Robin (hottie in white bikini), Frank (the Italian), Steve, David (birthday boy), Derrick, Nancy (other hottie in floral bikini), Genevieve (hottie in brown skirt and halter top) and nephews, and Mary. I think I passed on RSVPs for 4 of us. Oh well, that's southern California for you.

It is so cool seeing FR/FRN doing that National hobnobbing type stuff with NFRA and the attendees there. It was such an honor for Jim and all of Freeperdom for him to receive the NFRA's Ronald Reagan Freedom award two years ago and now for him to be there to hand it off is even better. It shows our National stature is growing and that Freepers are working behind the scenes across the country to get things done.

Congratulations Jim, Bob and Scott!

Regards,

TS

What I want to know is who won the Governor of California straw poll at the NFRA Convention?

That's the biggest news I haven't heard out of the weekend? Any info?

It was a most excellent party - lots of intense discussions going everywhere!!! I thought to myself - boy, these people are really crazy - and then I realized I'm one of them! Talk about a bunch of passionate, informed people. Lots of laughing going on as well.

I also observed that there was intensive blender activity going on over at the marguarita table with an occassional background duet by kayeyedoubledee and val e. girl of the Rush Limbaugh/Hillary "My mind's a blender - I don't remember" song. I haven't been able to get that song out of my head since 10:00 yesterday morning.


DoughtyOne did a great job with the barbeque - in spite of all the "distractions" around the pool. Bob J. and Diotima were wonderful hosts and made sure all were welcomed, introduced, watered and fed. It was also very nice to be able to met Jim Robinson, his wife and his son, Chris. It was a very nice party, a beautiful day and a bunch of beautiful people.

LOL, I didn come up with ten photos that I think you'll enjoy. I know I looked red, but I'm not sore at all. Red is tan for me. Sadly! I'll have those photos up in a few minutes.

Well now that you mentioned my real name all over the internet - everyone will know who's butt it is! Actually, I think D1 was way too gentlemanly to take photos but let me tell you - it was difficult keeping him focused on tending to the barbeque.

Here are a few photos from yesterday's Los Angeles Chapter (frn) social gathering.

BobJ and Diotima were gracious enough to host around fifty people yesterday morning and afternoon.  Everyone had a great time.

Sorry but I didn't catch everyone on film.  I don't like to run around with my camera out all the time when people are trying to relax and enjoy themselves.

The first photo is a large composit.  It's 1816x323.  It's about 250k in size.  It's a little sloppy, but it gives a pretty good layout of the back yard.

Click on any of these photos to see a larger 640x480 version.  As I mentioned, photo one is larger.
