BAJA NOMAD NINOS GOLF TOURNEY 2009

lizard lips - 8-6-2008 at 04:41 PM

Because our golf tourney last April provided a great day of fun and excellent food besides a fine turn out of golfers not to mention the money we donated to "Agua Viva" we are now planning another tourney for June 2009. it was a little cold in the afternoon at the course after the golf so we think June would be perfect.

Those of you that wish to volunteer their time in this outing please let me know and we can get started now. I hope to double the prizes and get gifts from various contributers in San Diego and Baja that will blow everyone away!

THIS IS ABOUT THE KIDS......... The money that was donated last year has really improved the facility at Agua Viva and makes life a little more bearable for those kids.

Doc has approved the first meeting to be held at his casa.

You might think it's a little early for us to be doing this but we were under the gun last year and only had a few months to put it all together. 2009 tourney will really be great! Please join us in this event. Those of you in Rosirito as well as San Diego and Tijuana are more than welcome to be a part of the organizing group. The more of us that can work together the better.....WE NEED YOU!

Hey lips

bajaguy - 8-6-2008 at 07:07 PM

bajablonde and I are in.................again. See you this weekend!!!!

DianaT - 8-6-2008 at 07:35 PM

We don't golf and we usually only stop in Ensenada long enough to shop, but

if when it is closer to the time, you set up a place for either cash or other donations, that would be good.

Udo - 8-6-2008 at 08:15 PM

I'm not a golfer...
BUT, I'LL VOLUNTEER TO HELP OUT NEXT YEAR.
COUNT ME INN.

lizard lips - 8-6-2008 at 09:08 PM

Baja Guy, I can always count on you and the wife to make the best sandwiches and my family and I are looking forward to getting together while you are down next week.

.JD and Udo thank you both. When we figure out who is doing what you both will be a big help. And Udo, we can talk about islands in the south pacific. I have not forgot.....

And Dennis, I know you will be part of this again next year and please tell Bob that his help last year was outstanding and I hope he will be with us again in 2009.

It is still a long way off so any of you that can offer a donation, or prize it will go to a good cause.

awfulart - 8-7-2008 at 09:04 AM

Count me in. Will help as needed. Expect to be in Punta Banda for the Chili cook off next week if all goes well. Will be pulling our 28 Ft Alpenlite with a Gray 3/4 ton pickup. Our German Shepherd will be providing guard duty.

Hope to meet some of you all

Art & Alice

Absolutly.
Good call on the extended time period to put it all together.

BajaGringo - 8-8-2008 at 05:38 PM

Send me some info on the tournament and I will gladly pass the word around up in these parts and see if I can put together some foursomes for you...

lizard lips - 8-8-2008 at 07:23 PM

You are gong to play as well Gringo? Thanks

LL... I have the capability to feed about 1000 people with all my catering stuff, but considering the distance I have to travel, I can prepare fish tacos on site (i'll pick up the angelito at the fish market), and I'll bring about 20 gallons of my state winning chili. Jana will be there to help also.

lizard lips - 8-8-2008 at 08:20 PM

Udo & Jana,

Always looking for a volunteer! When we all get together and get this planned we will for sure let you know. Fish tacos would be very nice and I'm always up for a bowl of chili!

lizard lips - 8-8-2008 at 08:50 PM

Udo,

I'll bring the KAVA...:o

Udo - 8-8-2008 at 09:13 PM

I still have some KAVA left form our last trip...about 5 years ago. We can compare grades.
I used to take a capsule a day from the 4 kilos I brought back, but U.S. research had shown that KAVA, although intoxicating, was somewhat harmful to the liver, therefore I quit taking it. I thought that the low age span of the fijians was due to poor medical care in the islands, but liver problems seem to prevail in the native islanders (not the native Hindu Indians, of which there is an equal population, and the Hindus do not partake in the Kava tradition.)

By the way, our chili is a big hit when used as a topping on tostones w/cheese/slasa/avocado relish. The flavors just explode.
I'll try to remember to bring some Fijian Rum. I have two bottles left that are about half full. I really savor those bottles, so we'll just have a couple of shooters. The rum is 180 proof and really different.

When we get closer to the date, let me know where we can make hotel reservations. We'll probably get there the Friday of the weekend. We love La Bufadora and generally eat at Habana Banana's for their raw oysters.

lizard lips - 8-8-2008 at 10:15 PM

My driver in Nadi introduced me to the root. It was quite interesting the first time as with most things, the first time! When he brought me back to the airport I had some time to kill so he took me to where the cabbies hang out at the airport in between flights and we sat there with about fifteen of them and drank to our hearts content. I border the flight back to L.A. fell asleep and woke up after we landed.

Every time I go to Nadi I see all the cabbies that I was with that afternoon and they remember that day....

The Kava in Tonga and Samoa is completely different from the Fijian blend.

It seems like most of the south Pacific Islanders suffer from Diabetes. Their diet is terrible.

bigmike - 8-9-2008 at 04:56 AM

Leslie and I will be in again this year, someone has to keep Doc in line.

That hurts just to read about it. You can buy something similiar here called Caa.

bigboy - 8-9-2008 at 07:55 AM

If Christine's work schedule allows. we'll be there to help and to keep Big Mike in line!

Just tell her to quit so you can support her in the manner which she deserves.

lizard lips - 8-9-2008 at 09:24 AM

Larry we need you and Christine. You missed it last year and why are still making the wife work?.... Big Mike, you and the wife really did a fantastic job in 2008. If it wasn't for the both of you we wouldn't have been able to pull it off. Looking forward for next year!

I generally use the CANA(sp), (I don't know how to make an enye), to make large batches of maragritas. The 5 or 6 liter jugs are sold next to the Viva Villa, which I also use to make margaritas. When getting shnockered, flavor is not a factor, potency is.
Come to think of it, I'll just bring a couple of flasks, I don't want to chance customs taking it away because it doesn't have a U.S. tax stamp on it. The suff is irreplaceable.

Viva Villa is made of Caa as well. Some restaurants here do the same thing but, I've seen Mexicans get up and walk out of a bar when they found out.

Sorry Udo...I got all stuck in your quote box.

Sorry, Dennis, the enye code will not work on my laptop with an added key pad. It doesn't even work if I press the fn key to change my qwerty into a numeric pad.

bajadock - 8-9-2008 at 10:37 AM

As Lips stated, getting golfers and sponsors committed early will ease some of the challenges faced last year. The event was successful due to a great team of volunteers and some significant personal sacrifices.





The Pub is open as usual and will host a gathering for interested volunteers. Suggesting first or second week in September. Maybe a saturday afternoon to catch more Ensenada nomads in town?

Oh oh......This is a job for Grover.

bigboy - 8-9-2008 at 10:56 AM

Dennis,

If Christine quit working, I don't know if I could maintain my fleet of boats and 4X4 trucks!
I sure hope she doesn't read this post.

Yeah. I hope you didn't burn any bridges at Cal Trans.

The Tamales were fantastic Bajabound! I hope you and the Amigo are going to be available for next year.

Yes and I will bring a foursome with me. Will try to put together some additional groups as you can give me details/dates, etc.

bajabound2005 - 8-9-2008 at 01:05 PM

Saturdays in September are looking ugly for us. We have the play the first 2 weekends, the PBYC picnic is the 20th...the afternoon of the 27th looks good right now.

Udo - 8-9-2008 at 01:17 PM

September looks good for me except for 11,12,13. We'll be in Baja anyway but will be celebrating our anniversary.
Perhaps one of the famous Nomad polls would work on this occasion?

lizard lips - 8-9-2008 at 01:26 PM

Lets do it the afternoon of the 27th. Anyone have any problem with that?

BajaGringo. It will be nice to meet you and your foursome will be welcome! We are always looking for some sponsors so if you have contacts that want to generate some publicity please let us know.

lizard lips - 8-9-2008 at 01:27 PM

I should have a date set after the meeting on the 27th.

The 27th will work fine for me. Look forward to meeting some new faces as well. U2U or email me the sponsor and any additional info and I will go to work on it today...

lizard lips - 8-10-2008 at 07:20 PM

Just was informed by Doc that the first meeting will take place at his casa the afternoon of September 27.

For those of you that don't know where Doc's home is located please let me know and you can follow me that day. It's a little difficult to give directions.

See you all there. Another notice will be posted when we get closer in the mean time go to the CHILI COOK OFF AT LA BUFFADORA NEXT WEEKEND. I will be there---Love that Chili!

Map to Bajadock's Pub

bajadock - 8-11-2008 at 11:05 AM



On road to La Bufadora, enjoy the 9 speed bumps. Just after the roadside market at La Jolla and bump #9, you'll begin the hill climb.

Approx 3 miles after that last bump, 1/2 mile past Rancho Packard and at top of hill, you'll see a Puerto Escondido sign and a guard shack on the left in the middle of nowhere. Take this left and ignore the guard shack.

Bear left and climb the hill on the dirt road. You'll enter under a funky arch, "Col. Puerto Escondido". In .3 miles, you'll spot the Pub on the left, downhill 1 row.


Email me if you need more or less information.

Will also see you chili fans this weekend. :spingrin::fire:

beachbum1A - 8-11-2008 at 02:14 PM

L.L. and Doc;
Will be happy to help out in anyway I can. :yes:

BajaGeoff - 8-14-2008 at 12:20 PM

Baja Bound will definitely do the corporate sponsorship and a foursome again for next year. This years event was great!

Just to warn you though....September 27th is the Rosarito to Ensenada Bike Ride, so anyone coming across the border that day should plan accordingly. Traffic can be a real mess on the toll road near Rosarito in the morning, and getting through Ensenada is damn near impossible from mid-day into the afternoon. Best bet - Head down Friday and don't come back til Monday!



Can't wait to play!

lizard lips - 8-14-2008 at 01:24 PM

Beachbum, If you only do half as much work as last year that would be great! Looking forward to seeing you in the group for next year!

Your right Geoff. If anyone has difficulty with that day please let me know. And a BIG THANK YOU for next years sponsorship Bajabound!

BajaGeoff - 8-14-2008 at 01:51 PM

You got it lips! Anytime I can combine Baja, helping kids and playing golf you can count me in!

bajabound2005 - 9-1-2008 at 05:11 PM

So this is looking a lot like another Nomad Happy Hour!

fishbuck - 9-1-2008 at 09:15 PM

I am probably the worlds worst golfer but maybe I can practice up a little for this event.
So is it 9 holes or the whole 18?
Sounds like fun and a good cause all roled into one.
:cool:

[Edited on 9-2-2008 by fishbuck]

lizard lips - 9-2-2008 at 06:40 AM

Fishbuck, This will be a scramble or "best ball" tourney as we had last year. So get a good team and it will take the pressure off your worlds worst status!

Looking forward to seeing you out there....

Did someone mention HAPPY HOUR??!! :bounce:

bajadock - 9-12-2008 at 11:39 AM

BOOMP!

lizard lips - 9-12-2008 at 05:20 PM

Have received word from sponsors already. Everything is moving right along.

If anyone would like to join myself and my son tomorrow 9/13 for a round of golf please let me know. We will be playing early.

BAJACAT - 9-14-2008 at 02:15 PM

DENNIS, I talk to Ferna, he still hasn't decide where the next one is going to be.Maybe Tecate or Tijuana.. I Also have six bikes for that project..

Thanks, Jos. It's getting close.

Thanks for the interest, I'll know soon and let everyone know.

lizard lips - 9-23-2008 at 11:54 AM

Don't forget to be at Doc's Pub this Saturday 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. for the first meeting of next years Nomad Golf Tournament.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there................!
