Rancho Days event touted as best yet

RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe celebrated its 80th anniversary and by all measures it was a success. “Rancho Days was very well-received,” Association Manager Pete Smith said. On Sept. 20, 175 hungry people lined up to eat pancakes at the annual Pancake Breakfast — even though several pancake flippers were a bit overzealous. “We’re still trying to retrieve a few pancakes off the top of the administration building,” Smith said.
On Sept. 25, a huge and hungry crowd turned out for the Rotary Club’s annual barbecue. Rotarians-turned-chefs Kerman Beriker and Fred Judge could barely keep up with demand as they flipped hamburgers. “We didn’t expect this many people,” Judge said. Still, the crowd had plenty to keep them happy: good food, music, activities for younger children, and lots of conversation with neighbors and friends.
On Sept. 27 there was a variety of activities. More than 80 people attended the Osuna Adobe Open House, which delighted Smith. “It was very well-received, a very successful day,” he said. Guests were free to mill about the historic Osuna Adobe and enjoy snacks provided by the Association. Many guests roamed the grounds, enjoying the horses that are housed on the premises, a service provided by the Association.
Also on Sept. 27, the Tennis Club offered a barbecue and a pro exhibition match featuring teenagers Stephanie Hoffpauir and Zoe Scandalis, both of San Diego. Hoffpauir, a senior at Escondido, is currently ranked No. 37 nationally; Scandalis has been ranked the top 15-year-old tennis player in the country.
Later that evening, residents of the ranch had a Hoe Down at the Golf Course Club House. There was plenty of dancing, good food and the restaurant even transformed into a poker parlour for the evening. Yee-ha!
