June 25th 2016 – 6:00pm

Here’s something we haven’t done for a while. When was the last time you went to a drive in movie? Well it’s been too long, and who knows how long this bit of nostalgia will even be around? wouldn’t you like your kids to experience this before it’s too late? Well let’s do it. Everyone is invited. At 6:00 pm we will meet at the Pizza Hut at: 1809 Coronado Ave, San Diego, 92154 because movies go great with pizza:) At 7:00 we will caravan down the street about 2 blocks to the South Bay Drive in. We will get in line so we will have the best choice of parking spaces. The movie starts at 8:30. I don’t know what will be playing because they only announce it a week in advance. But send in your RSVP now. We’ll decide on the movie in a couple of weeks. I’m sure whatever it is we will love it.

Movie 3

The movie will be at the South Bay Drive-in at 2170 Coronado Ave. Price of the movie is $9 for adults and $1 for kids 5 to 9 years of age. There will be a double feature and the first movie repeats after the first two movies are complete. You can bring your own food and drink. Alcohol is against policy but everyone brings what they bring. Just keep it on the down low and be responsible. I hope to see all your smiling faces… at the Drive In:)

Click HereMovie titles will be announced here on Sunday, June 19th.
They will also be sent on via e-mail.

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN!1464158998943-1August 26th, 27th & 28th

This is going to be the best year yet!
New Bus, New Itinerary, More Fun!

The date is set and the countdown has begun for our annual Phoenix River Trek. On August 26th our road trip will begin. We will arrive in Phoenix early afternoon and check in to our fabulous suites sponsored once more by THE INN AT EAGLE MOUNTAIN.
This is always our home base on this trip and as most of you know, every room is equipped with a fireplace & jacuzzi.
The resort has added a few new amenities including a restaurant. Massages will also be available by reservation only. As always we will make a visit to the
Famous Fountain and there will be two nights by the pool this year. As usual the cocktails are on the house and there will be lots of door prizes.


Just like last year we will be tubing on day two. We will have more time on the river and more fun at the resort. Saturday night will be pool party night. For those of you who do not wish to challenge the river, you just relax and enjoy the resort, play a round of golf at the Eagle Mountain Country Club, or just lounge around the pool.

We will leave the resort Sunday morning and make a breakfast stop. And to top off the weekend, we will have the famous Interstate 8, onboard wine party. How’s that for fun?

I am accepting reservations now. The total cost is $125 per person plus+ Your hotel. That’s ($65 per night = $130) for your two night hotel stay.
$125 per person holds your seat and the hotel balance is not due until check-in on August 26th. There are a few room options which the hotel will tell you about when you book. If you would like to be more budget minded and share a room, up to 4 can stay in a room and the cost does not change. Deluxe rooms are available so the sooner you make your deposit the better room selection you will have.

Your $125 deposit payment includes:
Bus transportation via Goldfield Stage Co.
Tubing Charge
Cocktails, soft drinks, & snacks on the bus
Hosted cocktail party
Hosted pool party
Door prize drawing
Wine party on return trip

(You will take care of your own meals but prices will be very reasonable)

FYI… You will not be able to make your hotel reservations until you receive a go-ahead note from me.

Payment instructions
Reservations will be confirmed via e-mail

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.

Another fantastic adventure

It was just as good as last year

The three day two night trip to Fountain Hills AZ. was fun for all. The Inn @ Eagle Mountain. has hosted us for the last 6 years and “it don’t get no better”. After a day of tubing what could be better than your own Jacuzzi tub? Well, every room comes with Jacuzzi and fireplace. Not only that but in true Fred’s Playland style, these luxury accommodations were not $300, or $200, but only $69 per night.


In 2014 we rocked the house!

Special offer because a lot of you have asked


Firearm Safety Class for Beginners.

We had an absolute blast at our last firearms safety class. Class was very informative and the questions were amazing. We got to touch and handle several different types of guns including revolvers, semi automatics, rifles, and even machine guns and an Uzi. Everyone did great on the firing range. some were a little timid but I can understand that. Some of the guns were very powerful. Hopefully the information gained will help you be more safe in the future and maybe some of you will even purchase your own guns. When you do, think about the fun you had in Fred’s Playland Firearms Safety Class 101.
