When making a reservation, be sure to let the resort know you are attending the annual WSRDSPOA Convention or “The Old Cops”.  Twenty sites have been set aside for our group. That block of sites will be held until June 1. After that date, the remaining sites will be opened to the public.  Call NOW.


John Beard the Convention Golf Coordinator informs us all that there will be nine holes of tournament golf played this year. This is an effort to attract more participants. For those that wish to play eighteen holes you may continue on after the first nine. If there are not enough members to hold a tournament, players will just enjoy the game. Please contact John at (509) 932-4081 or email John at johnmyra@smwireless.net before Sept.10th for Tee Time and location.


There are accommodations nearby for those not planning to stay in a Recreational Vehicle. In order to receive a group rate from the hotels below, reservations must be made before the cutoff dates below. Mention that you are with the WSRDSPOA or “The Old Cops”.  All will honor the discount rate for our group, Wednesday 9/16/15 through Saturday 9/19/15. I blocked 10 rooms at each hotel.  Rates do not include any taxes. All the rooms reserved are king bed but each motel stated they could accommodate double queens if necessary. Booking cut-off dates for each motel are as follows:  Best Western Plus rates available until August 24th. Rate, king $102, double queens, $118.  Baymont Inn and Suites rates available until September 1st. Rate, king $72, double queen $82.  LaQuinta Inn and Suites rates available until August 19th. Rate, $94. After those dates the room blocks will be lifted. All the motels are just off Hwy 84 on Hwy 395, about seven miles east of the RV site. The motels are close to the golf course where we will have our banquet. Those members wishing to stay in motels near the mall will have to secure and bargain their own rates. The three blocked discount motels should be adequate for our group.

Here is the preliminary schedule of events for the September convention. One big change; we are moving our banquet to Thursday night.  The price for the banquet buffet will be $29.50 per person. This includes taxes and an 18% gratuity. This is the same rate as last year. I thought they did a nice job with the buffet last year and we are assured of the same quality. Liquor and soft drinks will be available for purchase. As with last year we will collect all the money and pay with one check.  A large golf tournament on Friday took all the space available at the club house. This will mean there will be no potluck on Thursday. Friday night will now be free for individual dinners, gatherings or if some wish to potluck, the event center is available. John Beard has agreed to set up the golf for Thursday morning and can be listed as the golf sign-up contact. I will again lead a wine tour on Friday afternoon. We will reserve space at the Country Gentleman for the men’s and women’s luncheon on Friday.
