PARTIES EXTRA: SEPTEMBER 9, 2007- CLUB MEMBERS CELEBRATE
SUMMER’S ENDING…Members of the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club celebrated the Labor Day holiday with a pool party.
This was the last day this season that the swimming pool was open. The children played pool games including boat races, traditional coin tosses and balloon stomps. They also created a long banana split dessert.
After that, the chef’s gourmet Caribbean -themed buffet was served to adults and children. The menu included roast pig wrapped in banana leaves, Caribbean red curry and coconut cream chicken along with Tilapia with tropical fruit relish.
The “Something Steel” Band played during the evening.
RED IS THE COLOR…Red, the color of the University of Oklahoma’s football jerseys for the first game, was all over Norman as the favorite shade of summer. Red (and white) decorated the campus for Saturday’s game too.
A busload of fans had their own tailgate party during the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club bus ride to the first game. Box dinners and cocktails were served.
Ann Felton and Bob Gilliland rode the bus to the football game in Norman.
New club general manager Oliver Boudin greeted guests as they boarded the bus.
In the crowd were Mary and Bill Price, Sonny Boyles, Ann and Tom Flesher, Nancy Flesher (white shirt, red OU), Bette Jo and Frank (white shirt, red OU) Hill, Pam Smith, Mary Ann Malone, Carol Magness, Ann Felton, Bob Gilliland (white shirt, red OU), Lori and Dodge Hill, Dorthlynn and Gil Gaddis and Joanna Champlin and Shawnee Brittan.
Kent Coleman, Lane Wheeler, John Cox (red shirt, white OU), Brett Robinson and Allen Muchmore set up in the early afternoon for their tailgate party. The group got together near Boyd House in Norman. They have organized this party for the past 10 years.
Their tents and tables are reunion spots for 100 friends (plus or minus depending on the game). Their menu varies (depending on the weather.)
