Introducing Save Around San Diego.

It’s new to San Diego and it’s loaded with money saving deals. I’ve been sampling it for the past few weeks and I love it. It’s not as extensive as the previous book and there is no fine dining section but I think it’s well worth the money. Many merchants have been getting tight with the 2 for 1′s but this book has plenty.

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!

Special offer because a lot of you have asked


Firearm Safety Class for Beginners.

We had an absolute blast at our last firearms safety class. Class was very informative and the questions were amazing. We got to touch and handle several different types of guns including revolvers, semi automatics, rifles, and even machine guns and an Uzi. Everyone did great on the firing range. some were a little timid but I can understand that. Some of the guns were very powerful. Hopefully the information gained will help you be more safe in the future and maybe some of you will even purchase your own guns. When you do, think about the fun you had in Fred’s Playland Firearms Safety Class 101.

By Special Invitation only for
Fred’s Playland


Dr Phil Welcomes Dr. TD Jakes

The Date was Monday April 14th

Dr Phil with guest Rev. TD Jakes.
This was just a little different spin on the Dr Phil Show. In the past we’ve made stops at Gruman’s Chinese Theater, The Farmer’s Market, Universal Studios, and Even the Hollywood Bowl. But none equaled today’s trip. Afrer being showered with gifts from the Dr Phil Show, we took a short drive to Lincoln Heights and were treated to lunch, a tour of a winery, and wine tasting of some of California’s best wine. All thanks to the beautiful San Antonio Winery of Los Angeles.
