    Sorry we missed everyone. We ended up at Arrowhead due to a cancellation... now I know why they cancelled! We ended up with about 2 feet of water keeping us restricted to the pup. After I dug some trenches. And cleaned up, we had some food... and then about 10pm, we decided to pack it up and head home. Got home about 1:45am. Decided to pack up in dryish weather rather than in the rain! Oh.. and it's raining now! So glad we came home... but I do miss a good DRY camping trip

    Yikes! This year has been unreal! It's a shame you got all the way there to discover the problem.
    We are heading for Arrowhead 2 weeks today. In the East River Campground area. Where were you located that you were flooded out?

    So great to see all of our camping buds and the 4 littles had some fun in the mud! Emma may have had the most fun! lol We miss everyone!
    The potluck was yummy as always and everyone sang great for Snow and Wrench's birthdays!

    Thanks to everyone for the great time at the 2017 Summer Rally. Thanks to TandT for hosting every fire, (as far as I know anyway), and providing piles of firewood, thanks to Snow for hosting the Potluck and coming through with sponsored prizes, thanks to ccptbo for letting me plug the crockpot in over at her place so we didn't blow another fuse and have to call on Tony again to come and fix us up. There are no more fuses ya know, (and also for the excellent Birthday cakes, OMG!), thanks to Strawhouse for her beyond excellent cheese potatoes, (Tina would like that recipe if possible). Big thanks to Sleepy Hollow for finding some room to take us in when our other park bailed on us, and for TandT for finding Sleepy Hollow for us. We were the 2nd last ones to leave, and made the 4 hr journey home. Got in at 8:30, so that wasn't too bad. Glad Stevie could provide his regular whacky entertainment. Glad the rain held off. Excellent times!

    Even though I don't have the ability to do so I'm going to consider this thread "Closed" and add a few things just to wrap up the rally..

    First off.. a big. Big thank you to both halves of TandT for finding and setting things up with the campground after many had their sites closed at the original campground. .

    Next a thank you goes to Sharon at Sleepy Hollow Campground for finding a way to fit us in. Also have to thank Tony for finding and replacing the fuses that we kept blowing.

    Third big thank you to everyone who managed to make it to the relocation of the rally as well as to those who originally were attending. It's all you people who make the rally great. What better way to celebrate birthdays then with a bunch of looney people you met online..

    Soon the planninng will begin for next years 5th Annual Ontario Summer Rally ..

    May Uncle Jack bring you all many laughs and giggles... [CF]

    I don't really have a 'recipe' for the potatoes, but I'll write something up and send it to you.

    Thanks for all the thanks - we really wanted to go camping but also to see our great friends so we were happy to help with a replacement location. As for the fires we hosted a few but Craig hosted opening night ;)
    Thanks to all for the great company and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

    Rejuvenating this thread one last time.. Just wanted to thank everyone who turned out to the Rallies this year. The potlucks were great, the fires warm and the friendship great.. Check out the Canadian Rally section as details for the 5th Annual Ontario Summer Rally have been posted and the info for the 2018 Thanksgiving Gathering will be posted shortly, followed by the Kick off to Summer. .

    Happy Winterizing folks and hope to see old and new members next season..
