Spring Fling 2019 @ Vulture Mine Airstrip, Wickenburg, AZ

—————————————————————————————————————————————-
7 March 2019
Just a few photos I took of our campgrounds this friday, 8 March 2019. Most of our club members were out on a ride, except Jamie and Linda,
who were tending our Welcome Tent. The weather was perfect. Sunny and cool, with a slight breeze to keep things comfortable.
The first two photos are what you’ll see as you approach the Vulture Mine Airstrip from the main road, and because of the recent rains,
dust was minimal as you drove in. The other photos are of the campers that joined our Fling, and the last two photos, provided by Pat R.
is sunset at the campgrounds and a photo of a rare cactus. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photos.

Observations of the Vulture Mine Spring Fling
March 7th through the 9th 2019

An illness prevented me from attending the event until early afternoon on Saturday. Upon entering the airstrip
Parking area this observer was treated to the sight of camper after camper, ATV after ATV, with many still returning from rides. It was intuitively obvious that we had a great turnout for our annual Spring Fling. After greetings were Exchanged, I was informed that we could gather at the Vulture Mine eating shelter as early as 3:00PM.

Members and guests were filling seats as we all awaited the arrival of The Wild Bunch, for we all knew that some good groceries were about to be served up. Soon, ATV’s began to encircle the shelter as member after member Jockeyed for a place at the tables, which were nearly filled to capacity prior to the time they rang the dinner bell.

The weekends rides were announced along with ride leaders and the winners of the scavenger hunt, who were awarded their prize. Our hosts lit two kerosene heaters to help ward off the cooling night air.

Soon, we were served up generous helpings of brisket, pulled pork, and chicken, along with salad, baked beans, Honey glazed bread, and a baked potato.  As always, Bob and Jerry Lynn of the WildBunch Catering prepared a sumptuous feast for all of us.  It was delicious and plentiful!  Everyone loved their dinner and polished off everything on their plates!

Desserts soon followed with pie, brownies, and treats of all manner. It was announced that Bob White was celebrating a birthday, (his twenty ninth of course,) and box after box of  cupcakes appeared. Of course, a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday was sung to him by all attending.

Following supper, the drawing for prizes took place with ATV goodies of every description going on the block. The 50-50 drawing was won by ”ME.” By that I mean not by me. That’s how Linda J. filled out her 50-50 ticket. Ya had to be there.

Vulture Mine personnel invited us to return any time, and camping folks headed toward the bonfire. Hopefully, next year I will make the rides and feel a lot better. Not sure as to how to define the illness, but I can say for sure, that I am not pregnant.

      You’re welcome Pat! I hope you and Gloria enjoyed the Fling. You went home with a bundle of prizes too. Jean and I enjoyed seeing you there.

  1. Great pics as usual. Thanks Rene. At first glance, the one of Peter standing by the loo looks as if he dressed for dinner and is wearing a tie! Oh, well, maybe it’s just my old eyes! Not too many events have planes landing at their site. Thanks Chuck for the “air show.”

      Yes, indeed this photo of him does look like he is wearing a tie! Ha! Looks very regal too while beside the throne.
      Thanks Linda.

  2. I have not been able to figure out how to post photos. Can someone help? Thanks!
