Had a great time, thanks John. Got to see some folks again and also met some new friends. Food was awesome. Already looking forward to next time.
Also would like to get the recipe for the lobster bisque.

Sandlapper, Alumalina clan et al.

WOW what a great weekend was had with everyone. John L., Terry, John F. & John L. IV you all went way above and beyond with this great weekend.
What fun to be camping with great Airstream folks and the rain did not dampen our spirits or fun.

Rita added a lot of spirit to everyone when she showed up for the Saturday afternoon entertainment. Where else can you get great low country possum bog Friday night and a great fish fry on Saturday night?

Doug ( the Chaplin) said it this morning during Chapel, the great thing about Airstream Rallies are the people who jump in and put on a Super Pot Luck breakfast dinners and fellowship.

Maggie you and Doug were in the middle of all of our thoughts, events and fun that took place this weekend. Yes Doug was toasted by all and I am sure he was looking down from on high. We all look forward to seeing you in the fall when the clan of Alumalina meets again.

Thank you to all who touch our lives this weekend.

Kindest regards,

John & Anne Ashworth (aka Big Hooter)

...and a fair bunch of us hung out Sunday night and continued to enjoy convivial company (and the fish was still AWESOME). Great to see everyone and meet some new friends. (Oh, Rhoda and Nola also had a good time...they were EXHAUSTED and slept the entire 170 miles home). I THOUGHT I would escape the next best SilverLeaf improvement until I saw Rob and Katie's new Atwood range with a piezo lighting system for the oven... Definitely hope to see everyone at Fall Alumalina. Barry

Wonderful

Hello all! I am home safe. Thank you to each and everyone I met that made this a great event. Special thanks to Sandlapper and Susan for the planning of it. I could go on about everything and everyone, but for now, unpack, wash, store, and drink beer some more! Love to all my new friends!! See you in the fall ya'll. MPJ

What a great time! Thanks sooo much to John and Susan and their super assistants Terry and Annie. We had a blast. Loved meeting so many and trying to put "real names" with Forum names. I did get Rita's name clearly understood. She quickly became my new BFF. Can't wait till the next one so I can learn a few more names. If I go to enough I might eventually learn all the names.
Hope to see some of you at Region 3 rally in Ashville (or near there) next month or somewhere else down the road!
Kathy, Bill, Kevin and Wiley

Maybe those of us who go to the Region 3 in Asheville can do an "Alumalina Alumni" link-up. Wouldn't that be fun??? Barry

This was my our first camping trip with, Bella, and I don't think we could have found a nicer group of folks.
My 20 year old step son wants a Bambi for himself...
Thanks John, Susan and everybody who made our first trip so positively memorable.

Silverleaf,

Funny you would mention a Alumalina Alumni at the Region 3 Rally. I talked with Sandlapper this afternoon and told him I thought I would wear my Blue Alumalina shirt one of the days during the Region 3 Rally. I am sure the word is out about the Alumalina spring and fall event. This might get more people interested in checking out the Alumalina event?

We laughed and when on to reviewing the weekend and all of the great fellowship that everyone had during the weekend. Which goes back to the point that Roy Beaver was talking about having rallies and meeting new people from other parts of this great country. The point was proven on Sunday morning when all of the meeting tents came down in about thirty minutes, with lots of folks pitching in to help. I am sorry our "Chaplin" did not get to have the Sunday service under the blue tarp but what a great plan "B" under the beautiful trees and Carolina Blue skies of Lake Wateree State Park.

I do hope some folks are re-thinking about attending the Region 3 Rally at Fletcher after the great weekend we had at Lake Wateree.

Enough for tonight, back to my big tree limb to give my last Hoot.

Wow!!!

Thank you one and all for your kind words, and for not forgetting about my great team....could not have pulled it off without them. Everyone there was ready and willing.

Hotdogs, possum bogs, fish frys, even naughty girls like Rita don't make great rallys, it's the people who come that make them great....and what a great bunch we have. "Cheerful in all weather; never shirked a task".

I am still unpacking and putting together some numbers, so far it looks like this:

55 rigs, including 3 motorhomes
1-VA
2-PA
3-TN
1-NJ
1-RI
1-AL
12-GA.......nice work Georgia
13-NC.......Ga almost beat 'ya
20-SC........the winner!!!

Rigs from a vintage 1959 to 2013, 16' to 34'.

Almost 1500' of Airstreams

About 150 people, including 1 naughty girl named Rita.



Thank you all for being such great poeple.

John and Susan
