Tamale Party - December 10

After the upcoming Southwest Zone SCM Meet, there is going to be a social event hosted by the Dozer family. Here are the pertinent details.

It is time again for the Tamale Party - December 10. We are planning to make 100 dozen tamales this year with several types of filling ranging from game meat to Hatch Green Chile and corn. We may even have a resurrection of the desert tamales this year.

Please feel free to invite those you think may have some fun with this or friends that are not intimidated by large groups of people that have some fun for the holidays. You can RSVP via e-mail or phone 623-931-2211.

Accommodations for XI FINA World Masters Championships

Anybody who is planning on going to the FINA World Masters Championships next year at Stanford will need to start planning now and secure a place to stay during the meet. The following is an excerpt from the FINA website.

The Organizing Committee has secured rooms at 22 Bay Area hotels. We were able to secure discounted rates. In the past month we have sold out our allotment at three of those hotels. There are still many, many hotel rooms available and to secure the greatest choice, please go to the web site, view the choices of hotels and chose one.

If you are planning for a group of ten or more, please contact Shannon Sullivan . She can help you with your selection of hotels.
