Phoenix Sky-Sol Upcoming Events for Sept/Octo
Friday, 30 August 2013

This is the last posting re: Upcoming Events on this website.  Events for November forward will ONLY be posted on the new website.  If you have not registered on the new site, please do so soon.  Otherwise, you will not receive any notifications about what's going on with the Phoenix club.'s the stuff for September and October.  The big doings for September is the Regional Meet in Tombstone.  We all got tired of freezing in November so we moved this very special event to late September.  Same unique environment, same car show, games, rides, motels  - you just won't have to wear your long johns.  The dates are 9/27-9/29 so you must register soon.  The one other change is that you have to pre-pay for dinner and t-shirts since we lost our shirts (groan)  the last two years on folks changing their minds at the last minute. 

Leading up to Tombstone is a Saturday dinner on 9/7 at the Village Tavern in Scottsdale and an East Enders Coffee at P. Croissant on 9/15.  Check the RSVP for additional information on both of these events.

October brings cooler weather and our first planned car show, top down ride, and other outdoor events.  We hear rumors that the Firebird Grand Re-opening is the weekend of October 5-6 with a car show on the 6th (Sun).  Put it on your calendar but be prepared for last minute changes since we don't have firm details as yet.  We can always head to the Pavilions the night before if the Firebird show is a "no show".  

10/13 (Sun)  is October's East Enders Coffee at Bosa Donuts in Tempe with an Events Meeting afterward. We need all the new ideas we can get so we encourage all Phoenix club participants to consider teaming East Enders with the Events Meeting.

10/19 (Sat) is our first cool running for the year.  We are heading to Mt. Lemmon for a full-day run.  We start early at 8:00 at the Cracker Barrel in Ahwautukee. 

10/23 (Wed)  finds us at The Yard in Phoenix for Kappa Happy Hour and Dinner.

10/27 (Sun) is a new event called Sky-Sol Ninja Warrior Games with challenge matches in putting, bocce ball,table tennis, Wii games, a non-competitive pot luch dinner followed by Hand and Foot cards.  You can compete or cheer - but be prepared for fun.  

Check the RSVPs for the details on each of these events.

Phoenix Sky-Sol Upcoming Events for July/August
Saturday, 13 July 2013

July is about half way over and August is coming at us FAST so we need a quick update of Phoenix club events that are currently open for registration. 

sunset.jpgFriday, July 17 - Dinner and Sunset Drinks is scheduled for Garcia's then sunset (and hopefully monsoon clouds) at the cocktail lounge at the Buttes.  

Saturday, July 27 - 19 Fallen Firefighters Car Show at Metro Center Mall.

Sunday, August 4 - East Enders "It's Just Coffee" at Paradise Bakery on Ray just east of the 101 in Chandler

Sunday, August 11 - A Suite Deal a the D'backs for the afternoon Mets game.  The 12 person suite was donated to Sky-Sol so club members should sign up early to ensure a seat (orpool.jpg two). 

Saturday, August 17 - The Cool August Pool Party is NOW at Ron and Donna Crum's, it features burgers, brats, and chicken plus whatever shows up for the potluck portion.

Saturday, August 24 - Dinner and a Movie Drive to Maricopa!  Joe and Sarah are always coming to us so this time we are going to them.

Watch for a couple of additional new and exciting events for which the details are still emerging.  In the meantime, remember Tombstone will be here in September this year - NOT NOVERMBER - so saddle up.  The 2014 Alaska cruise seems to be drawing interest from members of our fellow car clubs across the states and early booking is still available.  Check it out.

06/24/2014 (Tues-Mon) Sky-Sol Alaska Cruise
Thursday, 30 May 2013
The Phoenix Sky-Sol Club motto has always been "Let's drive somewhere and eat something" but, in rcruise-ship.jpgecent years, we have expanded the saying to include "cruise somewhere" and, of course, "eat something".  Thus, we are organizing a 7-day trip to Alaska on the Carnival Miracle departing on June 24, 2014 from Seattle.  Sky-Sol owners, family, and friends from across the nation are invited to join us.  We have reserved the two Vista suites and several other cabins on the Empress deck and suggest that folks consider booking in that area to make it Sky-Sol Central. 

You can book on the Carnival website but it is a bit easier just to call them at 1-800-764-7419 as the representative can tell you what cabins are REALLY available where you want to be located.  We are opting for the late seating and if you RSVP on our website, we can link you to our existing reservations so we will all sit in the same area for dinner.  You can book now with just a deposit and final payment is not due until April 2014.

San Diego Regional April 2013
Wednesday, 01 May 2013
dsc05216.jpgOne hot Thursday morning in Phoenix turned into a beautiful afternoon and evening in San Diego as a caravan of 7 cars left Gila Bend for points west and sunny California.  Spirits were high as our group headed out.  We were welcomed by Myrna and many members of the San Diego group when we arrived at our hotel.  The group went on a ride through the hills ending at Mi Guadalajara's for dinner.  The meal was excellent, and the company even better as we greeted friends we hadn't seen in a while, and made new friends.

BBQ in Sun City
Monday, 08 April 2013

What a perfect spring night for another club barbeque at the Nichol's.  More than twenty people attended and dined on featherbone and button bone ribs.  When you add great salads, deviled eggs, baked beans, great desserts - and let's not forget the Texas Caviar - it was indeed a feast to enjoy.  The best part of course, was the chance to visit with everyone who attended.  The only down side was our inability to take a picture of the cars at the Sun Bowl since they were having a concert that night.  Ah well, until the next time...  Happy Trails...

BBQ in Cave Creek
Saturday, 30 March 2013

dsc_2485.jpgWow, another great club event.  This time, Sue and Norm Neville hosted a BBQ at their home with 33 people attended the gathering.  After a few hours of greeting, talking and munching on numerous hors d'oeuvres including bacon wrapped scallops, ham and cheese rollups, jumbo shrimp, watermelon, fresh fruit, cheeses, veggies  and dips, cocktail meatballs the group settled down to serious eating with a BBQ of angus beef burgers and beer soaked brats, a wonderful assortment of salads, and baked beans.
