Magician Tom Drake
Friday, March 3rd

In 1995, Tom Drake was one of eighteen performers auditioning at a showcase in Miami for entertainers who were seeking bookings as guest entertainers on cruise ships. The day after the showcase, Tom was the only entertainer offered bookings by all seven entertainment directors in attendance.

All these years later, he still remains one of the most popular stand-up comedians performing on cruise ships today. His material is fresh, unique and original. Tom's ability to develop hilarious comedy material that all ages can relate to has kept Tom working non-stop at sea... but enough is enough... and now Tom is finally bringing his hilarious one man show to land.

Don't miss this opportunity to see one of the funniest men in America. Make reservations today!

A Note from Ted

Busy season has definitely started early this year. Technically, our High Season starts in February, but it's usually not super busy until the end of the month. However, we've been very busy since the start of the month. Every day I look around and I can't believe how warm the weather is and how busy the pools area. That continues this weekend with highs in the low 80's!

This weekend is our Motown Weekend and RC Yacht Club Regatta. The Regatta comes first. It is run by our Cypress Cove RC Yacht Club. They run remote control 1 meter soling sailboats during their normal meets. The Regatta features races all day, including a just-for-fun competition between Cove management. None of us know how to control these boats. It should be very interesting...

The Motown Dance features great Motown music and a Stevie Wonder Tribute by Rick. Rick was one of our Monday Music entertainers last month and he was terrific. He really blew us away so I think this is going to be a good show.

Our fabulous Mardi Gras Celebration begins on Monday. This is a huge 2 day party put on by a committee of campers. The schedule is packed and you are guaranteed to have a blast. I know Monday & Tuesday are work days, but try to make it if you can. The Drag Queen contest alone is worth the price of admission!  :)

Around the Cove

Last weekend was our Parrothead Lite Weekend. Parrothead is our biggest party of the summer. It is a great weekend with lot of people and a fun Jimmy Buffet / Island theme. Parrothead Lite is our winter version. While it's not quite as crazy as the summer version, the weather was beautiful and everyone had fun. Also, lots of decorations are going up for our upcoming Mardi Gras celebration.

The R/C Yacht club bake sale was a great success. The money raised was used to help pay for the new dock.

The Adopt-A-Lamp Post Contest is so much fun
