Whenever someone writes an article or a little blurb about an event from their chapter, I usually receive more pictures than I can fit in the newsletter. For this particular issue, there was an unusually large number of pictures that didn't make it to the newsletter. So instead of the usual quiz or "did you know?" items normally found in this page, I decided to do an "extra pictures" piece, similar to your "extra scenes" found in a DVD. Here, in no particular order of importance are some of the pictures related to the articles found in this newsletter that didn't make it to the original article. Enjoy!






As the incoming Vice President for San Antonio Prime Timers (SAPT), I want you to know we are looking forward to hosting the 2019 Prime Timers Convention in San Antonio, October 29th to November 2nd, 2019. Approximately 150 registrations have already been received. Many have also already their made reservations at the hotel. We have blocked 275 rooms and will have the entire hotel for the conference. Some rooms can accommodate as many as 4 people. We look forward to a large gathering. We will have a hospitality suite with snacks, free alcohol and soft drinks. The hotel will allow us to have ice chests with free beer around the pool for participants.

Forty-nine Prime Timers enjoyed a September-October cruise from London to Miami.

This was a repositioning cruise. Most cruise lines offer tours of European ports in summer and ports in the Caribbean, western Mexico, and between Los Angeles and Hawaii in winter. The ships are repositioned between Europe and the Americas. These ships were previously moved with a crew but without passengers until cruise lines learned that if they dropped the base price low enough, customers would eagerly book this passage during the off season. Look at any cruise line website to see how prices start low at the beginning of the cruising season, increase during the prime travel season, then fall again at the end of the season. The low-priced transatlantic crossings, such as this one promoted by Prime Timers Worldwide (PTWW), are repositioning cruises. Few children and teens are on board as school is back in session. On the downside, the best weather is past, something we experienced in Reykjavik where it was 41F/5C.

Primer Timers of Phoenix held their Second Annual Fall Picnic in Rio Vista Park on Sunday, October 28, 2018. Sixty-three members attended the picnic catered by Dillon's Kansas City Style BBQ. They served pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and all the picnic trimmings. The meal was followed with birthday cake to recognize and celebrate the birthdays of our four members who are Nonagenarian, a person who is 90 to 99 years old. They are pictured below from youngest to oldest: Dean Wells, 90 years old and a PTOP Board Member, John Strobel, 91 years old, Ken Todd, 91 years old and Jan Janecek, 97 years old. Happy Birthday to these handsome men, and we wish them many more birthdays! Both Dean and Jan attended the picnic!
