At the Ranch this summer, we have been suffering through the blistering heat and humidity. To cool off, we scheduled a Colorado Club Beat the Heat Happy Hour while also celebrating Colorado Day. We had a great crowd come to the La Mesa room at La Hacienda Club, to wipe off the sweat and indulge in cool drinks and great eats from the Bistro Veinte.

It was called a social and it was not just to sit around and complain about the weather, it was filled with a “Funtastic Colorado” trivia contest.

Our MC for the night was flaming-hot Pete Watson, entertaining the club with his humor and posing challenging trivia questions. Pondering over the trivia questions about our Centennial State, Colorado, working in teams to quickly answer the challenge. In the end, first place went to the team of Bob Thompson, Ron and Carol Beeley, and Richard Juneau. Second place went to the team of Sol and Carol Ginsberg and Dale and Val Zupancic.

You can always be assured our ever-popular 50/50 raffle will be available at the club’s events. On this night, Linda Harvey won first place while Jan Martin won second.

The next Colorado Club event will be a Football Smackdown with the Washington State Club for the Monday Night Football game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos on Sept. 12. Since Denver recruited Russell Wilson from the Seahawks, you know there will be a good rivalry between the two ball clubs. Get your Bronco gear out. You may win a prize for the most outrageous fan attire.

Look for more Colorado Club events this fall and winter.
