June 20, 2009. I got to Hollywood Park (HP) around 1pm. I joined Debbie, Dona, Glenn, and Tammy at the Turf Club. I walked around for a while with my EOS and took photos around the track. It wasn’t crowded which made betting, ordering food, and getting around much easier.
Most of us did not know how to bet, so a HP handicapper gave us some tips.
We tried different strategies betting Across, Superfecta, etc. Net result, no huge winners.
In horse racing, you can bet small amounts over a long time so
you don’t lose a whole lot. My buddy Julie Lagerwall won on a horse called “TALKTOOMUCH”, mmmm
Julie and talk too much…..
We ate, drank, and chatted a lot.
It was good to see first timers at a Reseda Event, David Dutton and Shelton Hall. Classmates came from Texas, Nevada, Arizona, and all over California.
The area we sat was great for being able to walk around and mingle with everyone.
After the races, we sat and chatted some more. We headed over to have appetizers and drinks. We
had cheese, taquitos, chips, good stuff, and of course more talking.
Dinner was great. Roast Beef, Turkey, Pasta, Enchiladas, salads, and birthday cake for us. Robin Stark made decorations for the dining room.
Dona Bunzel’s son Chris was our DJ. We didn’t dance too much. We all left around 10pm.
We hope to see you at the next get together. Keep up with our classmates via Facebook. I have a facebook group called “Reseda High School Class of 1977”, check it out.
