    I'm going to be more active this year....look out lol!!! But that aside, we are excited about this coming season. After being on hiatus last year....Blah Blah Blah lol. Looking forward to getting back in the game. Already planning next summer, including the Rally! McRae is a nice park, we enjoyed our visit there in 2014.

    McRae,.. McRae,... Hmmmm,... Is that in Jamaica? I'm partial to The Dominican myself, but we were in Jamaica a year ago and could head that way again. Guess I'll start saving.

    Just think about it, no store bought apple juice required. You cut the top off the pineapple, dig a little bit out, and pour in the ingredients. The campfire drink continues. [:)O] . Mel can be looking up at palm tree leaves.

    I know it's early, but I've been know to be an "eager beaver" lol. We would like to offer our site for a communal bonfire one night of the rally. Also, we will have a regulation set of Cornhole boards set up. So maybe we can get a friendly tournament going....

    We will not be attending the Summer Rally in 2017 since we will be in Charlottetown, PE at that time.

    Hope to attend the 2018 Summer Rally.

    You'll be missed Isabelle! We had a great time at last years gathering! Kids had fun around the fire! 2018 for sure!!
    We are looking forward to McCrae! We have never been there and it looks quite nice!
    Thanks for offering your site for a communal fire, Sparky!

    Strawhouse...glad it's so close for you! We want to hear all about the Vermont Rally! Heard it was a huge success, as always! Looks like all had a great time! That is one rally we'd like to attend!

    Just an early FYI ... Again I am scheduled to work over the entire weekend.. Friday night to Tuesday night.. Will have to see how the crew bidding goes, then the vacation thing... Cause I can see myself getting sick on the Thursday and not feeling better until the Wednesday ... [:(O] [:(O] [;)] [;)]
