Hi Dan,
We have site 64 booked for this year, were you in 64 last year? PLEASE TAKE NOTE- when I booked it I didn't realize you were in it last year, I just now looked at the list Paul sent out last year and he has you in 64.

So did we beat you to it this year or did we make a mistake with our choice?

We will be in 57. This loop appears to be plenty big enough for all attendee's.

Hi Bill
Glad to see you're registered for the rally. Thats quite a little road project you have going out on the highway. We were at the Palisades looking around last week then down through Solon to MacBride and home. See you in September.

Hi Ronn, Last year we registered later and 64 was about all that was available. A couple of weeks before the event we are able to change our site to 126 so we had cancelled 64 after Paul published his list. I'm sure Paul is very accustomed to any one of us screwing with something he has put in place . Looking forward to seeing you in September.

Great, I try to avoid stepping on anyone's toes (not supposed to get that close nowadays)!
We are also looking forward to the rally in the new location, our site was quite wet last year, but not as bad as Paul's site.

Hi Barb
I will guarantee that you will like site 114. I certainly hope that we get to have this rally. I knew some folks from Stevens Point at one time when we were building a new pool in Cedar Rapids
They were of the firm Gremmer-Bablich Tim Gremmer was the Principle and the former mayor of Stevens Point Jim Figelson? was the money man. They were good folks and not afraid to share Point Beer and Wisconsin Cheese when they came to town They used me for a reference and after I had a long conversation with the Parks and Rec folks, got a five pool contract in Grand Rapids Michigan. Gremmer was appreciative. Instead of driving around, they took the ferry across Lake Michigan on inspection visits.

Hi Dave,
I am afraid that we cannot join you and Rita at this rally.
we hope that you all have a good time. We may have to make a trip to England to visit relatives when it is safe to fly.

Hi Jenny
Adrian is absolutely correct on the dates. We sure hope I happens as planned. We have a lot of fun and with the Reverend Toms keeping us on the straight and narrow path there’s no foolishness or debauchery. You’ll be most welcome if you can make it. Great sunsets on the Big River.

Sorry Jim
We have a family in our home town with the last name Katz. So when I saw your screen name
I just thought your screen name was a combination. I did not check your profile before posting. Probably should have but I didn’t. Hope to see you in September.

Jim you have to ignore what Dave says. As you know he's a great story teller but also can sometimes twist the truth a bit Other than my saying grace for the potluck (if we have one this year) you can be as foolish as you wish!

The debauchery is certainly limited. But where ever Dave et.al. are, there is plenty of foolishness. And thank heavens for that.

Foolishness

Itís milder now since Iím on the backside of 70, the short side of life. And it hurts so much worse the next morning than it used to. However Iím easily led astray and if nobody is there to do it, I take the natural leadership role thatís tumbled me through life. Whoís up for drinking fireball shots off of a pot luck tray. The Habberdabber and I will show you how itís done.

Now do not take this wrong Dave, but your stature allows you an advantage in imbibing alcohol. I read that Andre the giant consumed 119 beers in 6 hours, not that you are anywhere near that stature...and I'm no slim Jim myself.....
