Greetings Rocket Post,


     Another fantastic week in the books! Hope everyone is doing alright. Over the weekend I was asked by a few people when we re-opened! They were surprised we had been open a week. Please let your friends know, that otherwise do not get on Facebook or the web site that we are back to normal hours at the Rocket.


     How many of you still have a stack of the drink coins from the canteen? At the canteen we are very low on the purple and the silver chips. If you have a bunch of them would you please return them to the post and get a gift card worth the same value?? Please and thank you very much.


     Looking at this week we have Pool this evening at 7:00 PM. Tuesday we have paint Stick Bingo at 7:00 PM. As of now the Texas Hold’em crowd will not be playing in the hall. I will let you all know when they start back up. Thursday we have our Bingo at 1:00 PM and then Aarons Awesome Tacos starting at 5:30 PM. We will still have the open Jukebox for now but very soon we will have Johnny Danger or Karaoke back on Thursday nights. This Friday we have our Officers Choice Dinner so don’t miss out. Saturday morning we will have Post clean up starting at 8:00 AM. Please bring work gloves and yard tools if you have them.


     Don’t forget this Saturday is our Post Halloween party. We will have Rockin Robbin so dress up, come out and enjoy the evening at the Post. Unfortunately this means the pool tourney is cancelled unless you all would like to play earlier in the day.


     As many of you know we decided to not renew the NFL package this year but we are still receiving all the games on Sunday. That being said if you would like to watch your favorite teams on Sunday we have the two televisions in the screen room and we have four televisions in the canteen. Unlike the past couple years we will not make the bingo players move to the hall so if you would like to watch your games in the canteen there will not be any volume during bingo. Outside there will be volume. We have the beer bucket special’s as well so feel free to take advantage of that on Sundays as well as those burgers and dogs. Yesterday was actually pretty good.


     Please see the sign-up sheets at the post for Thanksgiving dinner on 26 November. We will have two serving times. We will serve from noon to 2:00 PM and then we will clean and serve again at 2:30 PM thru 4:30 PM. We will have the hall, the canteen and the screen room and all plates will be served to order.


     Don’t forget to sign in the daily and weekly when you visit the Post and do not miss out on the two drawings the Auxiliary is having. They have a beautiful handmade American Flag and they have a Fall Basket with all kinds of goodies in it. See the canteen associate for your tickets.


Have a wonderful week.
