Annual Cookout

Home Up


On October 1, 2005 Lou, Laura, Travis and Matt with the help of Lou's brother Mac
invited members and guests to the annual Alligator Quail Hunting Preserve feast.  The chief cook was Mr. Joe Wade who really knows his business when it comes to cooking seafood.  This year's menu consisted of fish, two kinds of bread; hushpuppies and Mexican cornbread.  There were all kinds of "munchies" available also.....roasted peanuts, brownies, chocolate chip cookies and lemon squares prepared by Lou's wife Laura.  In addition there was plenty of sweetened and unsweetened iced tea to quench the mightiest thirst.  There was skeet shooting and clay rabbit targets for the members to shoot.  The event started around 12 noon and continued to 4pm.  Below are some of the photos taken today.  We will try to include more as we gather other shots made during the day.

2006 Annual Cookout at Alligator Road Hunting Preserve

Below are photos taken October 7, 2006 at the latest Cookout
The day started out cloudy, but the sun broke through later.  There
were many old friends as well as new comers to see how things had
changed from last year.  As usual Laura, Lou's lovely wife went over
and above the call of duty to fix up all kinds of goodies like last
year's successful cookout.  Several folks brought sweet rolls and other
goodies to help out with the deserts.  Lou spread out roasted peanuts
and started a fire in his "oil drum" heater to help make us comfortable.
