Spiker Reunion Schedule Announced for May 2011

Schedule announced for 2011 Spiker Reunion

By Mike Spiker

Here is a tentative schedule of events but, as always, it is flexible.

Farm opens for business if anyone wants to ride ATVs or horses, hike, fish or just sit and talk.  We will have a cookout and campfire that evening with possible singing led by Dr. Mark “Sing Along” Spiker.  Camp sites and electric hookups for campers are available.

10:00 AM (or whenever John arrives or gets up) –Grilled chicken with Dr. John “Cook ‘Em Up” Spiker and his “volunteers” presiding.

12:00 - 12:15 PM – Opening ceremonies with Dr. Mark and Mike Spiker presiding; Opening prayer; Family photo.

12:30 PM – Lunch!  (everyone bring covered dish.)

1:30 - 1:45 PM – Auction (everyone please bring auction items) with Colonel John Spiker presiding.              2:15 - 2:30 (or right after the auction) – Free Raffle with Dr. Mark Spiker.  A special item to be raffled off will be Paula Nolan’s sunglasses since she never uses them two years in a row, and because she owes Mark one pair (just kidding.) 

2:30 – Fishing Contest at pond 1, pond 2 and/or river.  Prizes will be awarded for the Biggest, Smallest and Most Fish caught within a one hour period.  Limited to participants 18 years and under to keep Mark Spiker from trying to win prizes.  Awards will be given out immediately after contest.

Depending on interest, we may also have a Corn Hole contest after the auction with teams of two.  No age limit.

There will be an evening campfire with Dr. Spiker and his singing recruits for whoever remains.  PLEASE BRING GUITARS and anything else that makes a pretty sound. 

You may bring your own ATV, horse, etc. for trail rides throughout Saturday and Sunday.  Other activities such as scanning of old photos, etc. as time permits.
