Fort Worth's Holiday Celebration at River Crest Country Club

Fort Worth
Saturday, December 11, 2021 - 7:00pm
Fort Worth

Forty-two members and guests attended the Fort Worth Section's 2021 Holiday Dinner-Dance, which was held at River Crest Country Club in Fort Worth.  Arriving members were welcomed with an hors d’oeuvres reception, giving everyone a chance to catch up and get to know new folks.

We sat down to a nice 3-course dinner, which featured a duet of filet mignon and sea bass as the main course.  After dinner, members tried their hand at winning prizes by playing the “Holiday Bowl” game.  In this tabletop bowling tourney, players earned points by knocking down as many pins as possible, with bonus points awarded for strikes and spares.  The five proud winners of great Mercedes-Benz prizes were:

     1st Place:   Patricia Schussler - Three-pointed Star crystal decanter.

     2nd Place:  Rhonda Williamson - Duffel bag by North Face.

     3rd Place:  Mika Tirschler - Racing 300SL porcelain cup set.

     4th Place:  Jim Hannon - Wackeldackel with Three-pointed Star collar.

     5th Place:  Chris Watt - G-Wagen Christmas cappuccino cup set.

The following were honored for their service to the club:

     Jim Hannon - South Central Region Officer of the Year.

     Martin and Nicki Branville -  2021 Fort Worth Members of the Year.

     Ginny & Arno Pitzen - 2020 Fort Worth Members of the Year.

The rest of the evening was spent on the dance floor to the beat of music selections played by D.J. Mike.  The Holiday Celebration was a great finale to our 2021 event season.  Very special thanks to Kris Ikejiri for his photo contributions.
