Also, the old Jarts ROCK! Make sure no one is in your pitching area though!
Bring it all along!
Yeah, I found the set in the loft of our barn under a dead hippie.

Euchre is tons of fun!
I have two screen tents and we could use one for a game or two in the evening! It is a good way to break the ice too.
Who is up for a progressive Euchre game? I know I am!

Main Update

Well, I just got a phone call and though 2airishuman was accidentally signed up and we removed him from the list, we now have another LY Motorhome just now signing up. We're back up to 20 units, that I know of. And I'm still waiting to hear from Jeff Terry, and Lou, what about your friends?

Anyway, here's an unordered list of events proposed so far:
Friday Night Mixer/Icebreaker (beverages and finger foods, perhaps a campfire?)
Open house for tours of campers and Mohos.
Saturday Potluck
Euchre tournament
Dutch oven cook-out (not Cook off, no Iron Chef battle here! Need more participants!)

We need other suggestions. Some that I am just throwing out:
Horseshoes/Jarts/other tournament
Area excursion to Wine tasting room/Mystery Spot/Antiques etc....
Kayak/canoe trip/State park daytrip
Other games

And we need :
More Dutch Oven Cooks!

Sorry to say but my brother is booked solid for additional work that weekend.
As for Jeff, I have not been able to get him to call me back in several months. He does have a more demanding job with his company now and it demands a lot of his time.
He was my resource for T-shirts too so it looks like T-shirts will not be available this time either. Sorry guys.
It does look like we will have a lot of fun though.
On a side note, I am planning on a weekend up at Covenant Hills, (the site of last year's rally), sometime around the end of August or the beginning of September. It will be a family thing so it would not be a rally per se. If anyone would like to entertain the idea of going let me know.

Cribbage is my favorite too! Maybe we can play a game or two!
Which GM plant were you at? I work at the GM Power Train Warren plant full-time.

Ah!
I ran off some tire mount equipment for the GMT-900 project back late last year.
You may have seen it in there. It is a huge cell that has four PLC's on it. There are two mount and inflate stations in it. It is really neat to watch it mount the 22 inch tire/wheel combo!

tires

those tire machines are quite a modern work of engineering. you definetly won't see those in a tire shop. it would be the shop! very cool to see operate. it never ceases to amaze me at the level of automation in these plants. state of the art.
