One of the ladies has a craft meeting where they make something unique and participants pay only for the cost of materials, usually $5 to $10. And if someone has a general interest hobby, they will schedule a "class." One year, one of the participants demonstrated geocaching. Perhaps we have some talented rally attendees who would be willing to volunteer to share their knowledge with those who be interested.
That's a good idea. The first year in Merritt, Reace did a bearing repacking workshop.

If anyone was well versed on solar equipment, a lot of folks could appreciate that.

Ok, ribs, whiskey, perusing a hardware store, all sound good.

We'll be arriving Thursday early, probably before noon. Ribs sound awful good for a first night dinner. Heck, we might even try poutine.

Them ain't whiskies, silly.

But they can be a great prelude to the whiskey.

Oo, oo, oo, I know, I know!

A trailer towing rodeo. Set up pylons in an obstacle course, reversing challenges, etc. Escape Trailer Industries to supply the tow and trailer.

Ah, Rye. How very old school of you Doug. Rye's making a huge comeback.

In my previous post, I was going to suggest as an example that "perhaps Jim could demonstrate the proper way to empty a bottle of single malt scotch," but I was afraid someone might take it the wrong way!
