At The Rocket

Greetings Rocket Post,


     Happy Tuesday Everyone, yes I am a day late on this weeks "At the Rocket”, and as usual I have excuses. In case you all did not know, we are open! We opened the post back up on Sunday and we are back to our normal schedule and normal weekly events so I do hope to see you at the Rocket.


     You will notice we are adding to the states guidance and limiting our maximum to 50% for everyone’s safety and we are encouraging our canteen associates to wear their mask. This does not mean that you have to wear your mask. You can if you like but it is not mandatory. Our cook teams will be wearing masks as well as gloves to ensure everyone’s safety.


     Tonight we have the Texas Hold’em and the Paint Stick Bingo staring at 7:00 PM. Wednesday we have the General Membership meeting at 7:00 PM. Thursday we have Aaron back in the kitchen doing his awesome Tacos starting at 5:30 PM. Friday we have the Pork Chop or Steak dinners starting at 5:00 PM. Saturday, please notice, the pool tourney is back to its normal time of 7:00 PM. Come try your skills and meet our new canteen associate Monika.


     I have been asked about the Post Clean up and yes we have moved it to 31 October at 8:00 AM due to VFW commitments elsewhere on the 24th. Please bring yard tools and work gloves. The goal is to clean the screen room furniture and the screen room; we need to clear the ditch behind the post to ensure people walking through have a cleared path. We will also focus on the grill area and the three fridges outside. If we have enough volunteers we will work on detailing the kitchen.


     I still have the Halloween party on the schedule but this will be discussed at the Meeting Wednesday night and the majority rules so this could still be a go but there is the chance we will cancel it, please stay flexible.


     The Auxiliary has decided to push back the "Fall Festival” which was scheduled for 7 November and make it a "Spring Fling” early in 2021. This will give a bit more time working out the details and coordinating for the entertainment and all the other logistical requirements involved. I will let you know the date when it is confirmed by the Auxiliary.


Have a wonderful week.
