Breakfast Social at the Bombshelter
.

The Breakfast Queens, Carol Buote and Marilyn Watson, rounded out a perfect 2016 of socials with a meet at the Bombshelter Bar and Grill at Skydive Perris, so we got both a meal and entertainment. They wanted everyone to know that the idea came from Skip Hipp, who is apparently a regular at this location. The restaurant allowed the Corvettes to park out front on the tarmac so everyone who was there for the skydiving could also enjoy them.

.

 

There were 40 COTV members in attendance, including some very new like the Bryants; some original members like the Weeks and the Nagles; some younger like Kylin McIntosh; some older like Joan Crawley; and some we hadn’t seen in forever, like John Marsh, Mary Kino and Norm Luckcuck. We placed our orders from the menus or boards and within minutes heaping plates of food were prepared by a very fast team of cooks. They called your number and you got to dig into the Big Daddy’s omelet or biscuits and gravy or various scrambles or combos. What’s not to like?!?

.

 

Then the entertainment started as skydivers from a military group did their descents right in front of the restaurant. Other groups were in the queue for their turn, so you could nurse a coffee and spend the morning watching others take risks you might not choose. Jim Sommars wasn’t sure if you should eat first or skydive first or maybe just eat and forget throwing yourself out of a plane. For many of us it was a first visit to this venue, but maybe it won’t be the last for some who can join Skip to watch the action.

If you haven’t been to a breakfast social, you’re missing the opportunity to eat copious amounts of breakfast foods with the likes of Hans Boers, Tom and Karen Bryant, Carol and Leonard Buote, Doug and Marilyn Glenore, Al Hackworth, Dave Hellman, Skip Hipp, Jim and Susan Lokken, Manny and Diane Macedo, John Marsh and Mary Kino, John and Fritzi McDermott, Ray, Judy and Kylin McIntosh, John and Diane Meyers, Bruce Mofford, Tom and Willie Nagle, Norm Luckcuck, Chuck Sherman, Randy and Angela Smith, Jim Sommars, Kim and Val Sparks, Bill and Marilyn Watson, Rob and Daryl Weber and Joan Crawley, and Don and Bev Weeks. You are out of luck for 2016, but Carol and Marilyn are already making plans for 2017, so get your act together and RSVP, then turn up when the dates are set for next year.
