Our club is especially blessed with many excellent cooks. The happy hours and pot lucks prove that. If you have an interesting short story to go along with your recipe, please include it. ALL categories will be included. There will be a chili "cook-off" category, too.

RICHARD WATKINS Died on Friday, April 15, 2011, at his home. Rick will be remembered by our Club Members as the 2008 Legend Silver Medal Winner in our Palm Creek Tournament. He will also be remembered as a good sport and for his enjoyment of the game. The following is an excerpt from his Obituary: He married Shirley Truitt on February 27, 1953, in Kirksville, Missouri. He served with the U.S. Marine Corps as a Lieutenant at Cherry Point Marine Air Base in North Carolina. Following his time in the service, he earned his Master in Education degree at Northeast Missouri State in Guidance Counseling. He later earned his certification in Secondary Administration. In his career as an educator, he coached football, basketball, track and golf first at Lohrville High School in Lohrville and then at South Tama High School in Toledo. Later he worked as a guidance counselor, coach, Athletic Director, and Assistant High School Principal in South Tama. After moving to Muscatine in 1974, he was the Principal at Central Middle School. Rick ran many Bix 7 and Peachtree 10K road races and also half marathons usually with his son, daughter, and granddaughter. For a time he raised Shetland ponies. He also enjoyed flying radio controlled airplanes. He and his wife spent over 20 winters in Casa Grande, Arizona, where he enjoyed playing tennis, pickle ball, and golf with friends there. In the summers back in Iowa, he continued with those sports. He loved camping and bicycling with family and grandchildren. Sincere Condolences to Rick's family and friends In memory Rick's name will be added to our Memoriam plaque at the courts.
