White Sox and Cubs spring training game at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona
I was really impressed with the White Sox new spring training facility called Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Arizona. It is much better than the previous facilities in Tucson, Arizona and Sarasota, Florida. Also it is in the Phoenix metro area which makes it close to all of the many other teams that train in Arizona. I had a great time on the trip.
I had a great time in the warmth of Arizona for a trip that included White Sox spring training, tours of Scottsdale and Tempe and trips to the Red Rock Canyon and a ride on the Copper Spike Train in Globe, Arizona.
We loaded up 6 truckloads of items from my mother’s house in an attempt to clear out all of the accumulated items from over 40 years. Still a few more loads to go tomorrow and then painting and cleaning prior to placing the home at 1016 Circle Ave. in Forest Park, Illinois for sale.
Note: As many of you know, my mother passed away on October 28, 2009 which is why the above is being done.
I had a great time at the British car parts swap meet in Wheaton, Illinois on Sunday, February 28, 2010. It was the first time I had been to this event even though this was its 14th year.
I attended with Bruce Magers of the American MGB Association and we had a vendor’s table set up with club merchandise and membership information. We did manage to sign up a few new members and met many of our current members at the show. It was also good to see so many of the friends that I have made throughout the years because of my involvement with the club.
