We arrived a little early just in case it was a mad house, but it was totally relaxed!First item of business was getting my name into the Golden Drum, then onto the activities. There was a bounce house for the kids, and lots of food, and sugary drinks, and local mini-celebrities like Miss Utah, the Grocery Guru,the radio station DJ, and the guy that owns Colosimo Sausages. Not to mention 40+ people hoping to win the $5000 in groceries for the year!

Woah! Golf balls! Now all your wildest dreams have come true, right? Sounds like a lot of fun - I'll make sure to vote for you next year (or at least hold a sign that says "Pick my friend!")
