  Everyone pitches in to help our Prize and handout committee chairperson, Ruth Kadlec, stuff the handout bags.

Oh ya we had rain
2 inches or more
every day starting
with the day before
our guests were
to arrive.
Until the day our
guests left for home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The teams just about ready for guests to start arriving

 

John & Ruth Roskam are on the front line to greet incoming RVs and hand out gifts

 

Parking Chairman Charlie Kadlec readies the parking crew

 

Our guests have arrived - all 166 RVs plus 12 motel rooms

 

Daily soakings caused a little mud

 

and one minor accident

 

and some ruts

 

we brought in the heavy equipment

 

this will keep the grounds keepers busy

 

As usual, the day our guests left the sky turned blue
and the weather was wonderful
