I have been to Spain and I was very disappointed when I saw that it is not purple. It is actually like the rest of the globe....green.
The form is just to verify if you are coming or not. If you want T-shirts or not. What size T's you will need. How many. It will have the price of the T's on them too.
I have also been asked to include my smoked chickens on the form too. If you want a smoked bird it will be done at cost. I will cook them all before heading out to the rally.
I am also planning on including a comments area that will allow all of you to put down your suggestions for the rally.
There is minimal cost involved in planning the rally. Last year a few of us sucked up the costs. This year we are having to pass it on to the attendees.
Door prizes will now be raffle prizes. This will be done to ONLY cover the cost of the prizes and tickets. I plan on selling the tickets starting the Friday of the rally. Any suggestions for nominal raffle prizes will be greatly welcomed.
If you plan on making a donation, like Steph and Al have done, please let me know. I am planning on giving all who donate something in return. I do plan on including beanies for all who donate. If that is not a dumb enough way to spend your donation, I will find something even sillier!
I am planning on giving out printed awards for the following categories:
- Longest haul
- Oldest trailer
- Trailer with the fewest items functional (no fair breaking things ahead of time on your trailer to win).
- Best potluck dish, (based upon voting)
- Newest trailer
- Most party lights
- Most pink flamingoes
None of the awards will be worth anything other than bragging rights!
Make sure you display your award prominently at home. Maybe on your mantle for all to see!
I was going to include an award for "Being Most Like Lou" but Candie said that should come with a free psychiatric evaluation and not an award!
Tell me what you all think!
PS I am trailerless right now as my brother has it in Kentucky on vacation! YIKES!
