Wet'n Wild "Splash Bash"
- Blessed with gorgeous weather, those who attended our annual
family social had a wonderful time, lots of fun in the sun, and a
hearty serving of all-you-could-eat lunch!
- Following a dreary week of rain, and more rain, our event fell
on a perfectly beautiful day. Your committee chair and his wife
arrived early and set up a table at 10 AM so that anyone who had
not reserved tickets could come and get them at the gate. Even
though 85 tickets had been distributed at the UCF ExCom meeting,
and over 100 total had been requested, our showing was much less
- The Wet & Wild sales manager had reserved for us the very
nice Terrace Pavilion which is located lakeside at the Knee Ski
ride. The tasty barbecued chicken was plentiful, along with the
hamburgers and large hot dogs, very tasty baked beans, coleslaw,
and condiments bar of fresh sliced tomatoes, lettuce, sliced
pickles, onions, and catsup, mustard, and mayonnaise. The
chocolate and vanilla ice cream dixie cups and soft drinks were
freely available from 10 AM until we left at 7 PM.
- While Dave & Heidi Flinchbaugh manned the ticket table
from for the first three hours, with the welcome help of Jorge
Medina, attended had a chance to get started on the ride and
lunch. Awards Chairman Al Berg, Section Secretary Robert Pirela
and their families, along with other IEEE members, children and
spouses, students, and guests were seen having fun on various
rides. Your event chair personally enjoyed the Blue Niagara tube
ride, the breathtaking drop on Der Stuka, the twisting Mach 5
flume, the Surge, and the Bubba Tub, along with the exciting new
Hydra Fighter and the calming Lazy River and Surf Lagoon. The
Hydra Fighter tests your, and your partner's skill at timing the
water thrusts to set new heights in swinging delights. You also
get a chance to spray the onlookers and those waiting in the line
in the same way you got showered and soaked standing there!
- We hope to see more students and families there next year, so
be sure to anticipate this fun event!
