OCBS 2020 Christmas Party

OCBS 2019 Christmas Party

OCBS was founded in the summer of 1984 at the old Rod Makers shop in Strongsville, OH. This marks our 35 anniversary season which is a mile stone for our club which should be celebrated.

I am happy to announce that we will be holding a combination 35th anniversary and annual Christmas party on Thursday December 12, 2019 at the Winking Lizard Party Center at 25200 Miles Road, Bedford Hts., OH 44146.

We will celebrate with a delicious catered buffet dinner featuring a menu of Chicken Piccata, Beef Brisket, Cavatelli Pasta Bake, Roasted Red Skin Potatoes, Green Beans, dinner rolls, soft drinks and coffee. There will be a cash bar. For all of you foodies, I believe this catered meal will be a big step up from the wings and bar food on the buffet at prior BW3 Christmas parties.

We will start with a cocktail hour at 6 PM with a cash bar. Dinner will be served starting at 7 PM. Raffles will be at 9 PM. The cost of dinner is $15 for members and  guests which is a great deal. OCBS is paying $28.15 for each dinner, but we are only charging members $15 in order to keep the party affordable for all who want to attend. All members and guests in attendance at the party must pay for dinner.

We will have a premium rod and reel raffle featuring both fly and center pin gear, a Chinese raffle, a 50/50 raffle, special deserts and lots of fish stories.

The party room at the Winking Lizard Party Center can hold about 125 people for dinner which is the limit for reservations.

John Beedlow will be in charge of Christmas reservations again this year. If you want to attend and share some holiday cheers with your fishing buddies, please make reservations by sending an email to OCBS@wowway.com or sign up at our October or November meetings. We are also requesting you to pre-pay for your dinner this year when making your reservation. If signing up by email, please mail a check (by November 30th) to:

P.O. Box 29577
Parma, OH 44129

I am looking forward to celebrating the holidays and our OCBS 35th anniversary with all of you this December. It will  be a good time that you will not want to miss.
