August 7th, 8th, & 9th

This is going to be the best year ever!
New Bus, New Itinerary, More Fun!

The date is set and the countdown has begun for our annual Phoenix River Trek. On August 7th our road trip will begin. We will arrive in Phoenix early afternoon and check in to our fabulous rooms sponsored once more by THE INN AT EAGLE MOUNTAIN.
This is always out home base on this trip and as most of you know, every room is equipped with a fireplace & jacuzzi.
We will have a few afternoon surprises including a visit to the Famous Fountain and the annual Friday Night Cocktail Party in my suite. As usual the cocktails are on the house and there will be lots of door prizes. Last year we had over $3000 worth of goodies to give away. I hope to have even more this year.

This year we will be tubing on day two. We will have more time on the river and more fun at the resort. Saturday night will be pool party night. as usual there will be plenty of libations and the party usually goes well into the morning. For those of you who do not wish to challenge the river, you just relax and enjoy the resort, play a round of golf at the Eagle Mountain Country Club, or just lounge around the pool.

We will leave the resort Sunday morning and make a breakfast stop. And to top off the weekend, somewhere along the return trip we will be having an onboard wine party. How’s that for fun?

I am accepting reservations now. The total cost is $120 per person plus ($60 per night = $120) for your two night hotel stay. $120 per person holds your seat and the hotel balance is not due until the week of the trip in August. The room charge is per room and up to 4 can stay in a room if you would like to be more budget minded. The sooner you make your deposit the better room selection you will have. Your $120 payment includes:
Bus transportation via Goldfield Stage Co.
Tubing Charge
Cocktails, soft drinks, & shacks on the bus
Hosted cocktail party
Hosted pool party
Door prize drawing
Wine party on return trip

(You will take care of your own meals but prices will be very reasonable)

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.

Another fantastic adventure

It was just as good as last year

The three day two night trip to Fountain Hills AZ. was fun for all. The Inn @ Eagle Mountain. has hosted us for the last 6 years and “it don’t get no better”. After a day of tubing what could be better than your own Jacuzzi tub? Well, every room comes with Jacuzzi and fireplace. Not only that but in true Fred’s Playland style, these luxury accommodations were not $300, or $200, but only $69 per night.


In 2014 we rocked the house!
