Pasta Dinner

Newport Natural Foods and Montgomery’s Cafe
Swimmers and Yackers Pasta Dinner

Newport’s Gateway Center
Friday, July 5, 2013 at 7:00 pm


Each year our pasta dinner seems to get BETTER, it fills to near capacity with about 350 Swimmers, Yackers, and Boat People all enjoying a great all-you-can-eat pasta dinner prepared by the wonderful folks at Newport Natural Foods and Montgomery’s Café.   It’s just a magical night, all the training done, the tapering complete, the anticipation ripe for the next day, sitting under the tents on the Waterfront with friends, family, and kindred spirits.  This year we will be adding another tent and are preparing for even more of you.  (Is that really possible?)  We have room for 400.  Advance Tickets are $15 for all who are 13 and older, $10 for kids aged 6 thru 12 and $5 for kids under the age of 6.  Tickets are limited to 400 and they must be purchased in advance so that we can plan for you. 
When you make your reservations, please indicate your preference, lasagna or spaghetti (it’s a non binding referendum, just to help us out in the planning).  We will be offering a meat sauce and a non-meat sauce on the spaghetti.  The lasagna will be three cheese. We do offer a Vegan option.  As with last year, we welcome you to BYOB.  We will provide milk, water, soda, and set ups.  In order to assure your place at THE social event of Newport’s High Season, please reserve your spot now.  The earlier you register, the easier it is for us to plan.
This year we are pleased to report that swimmer, triathlete Neni Chacin and her Latin/Jazz Trio, Vida Vibrante will be entertaining us with some wonderful music during dinner.

Neni will be swimming the 3 mile course on Saturday.  Also, please remember we will have advance sign-ins and tours of the course starting at noon at the Gateway Center in Newport on Friday July 5th, followed by the World Famous Frontier Animal Society’s Pet, Swimmers, and Yackers Parade  just before dinner.  Paraders are invited to participate in our Viking themed  Look-A-Like Contest.  Winners will get a free one hour flight from Lakeview Aviation, just the best way to see The Kingdom (other than running, biking, swimming or yacking.)  At dinner we will be introducing our volunteer kayakers to their swimmers so that they can meet each other and discuss feeding and support needs and plan things out.   We will also hand out instructions and rules for the swim.  This will also be done, early Saturday morning as well.  But by then most of you will just be looking at the water and wondering how cold it really is.  So we hope you will come to the Dinner and be fed and be prepared for the next day’s swim.
