One of the things I love about this rally is that more often than not, it is on the second weekend in June. That makes it great for planning. In the five years we've been going, it was only moved once (to the third weekend in June).

We'd love to have you join us next year if you can't make it this year. This rally is fun and informal and you are right, it's not that far from St. Louis. Every year we have "first timers" and "several timers" and "many timers." It is one of our favorite gatherings.

In actuality I've moved it once in 11 years and that was due to me having to work that weekend. Another interesting fact is that of those attending, 4 have been here for every rally. The date was chosen with the idea that this was the first weekend the kids would be out of school and we would at the end of the spring rains and prior to the summer heat.

And, it's a good weekend choice, IMO. .

This is year 5 for us, I think, and weather has ranged from very cool to very hot. We are having such a nice spring this year, I hope that bodes well for moderate temps for the rally this year.

Yep I remember years where we got so close to the fire that we softened the soles of our sneakers, and years where it was so hot that no one considered a fire! We started with 14 at our first rally and have had as many as 42 before gas got so high.

Here's a couple of pictures from year 1.

We have had a pretty good crowd every year we have been there, and I write people all the time and suggest they come to this rally.

Not only lots of nice folks but we are, after all, just about smack dab in the middle if the country!

Is it June, yet? What is the weather going to be like? I saw this great Prosecco (shhhh!) and pureed raspberries drink recipe that would be fun to try some morning, but it is a warm weather beverage.

It's funny but when this rally was first proposed, no one could come to agreement as to where it should be. I stepped in and looked at all the suggestions, looked at where people were coming from and picked Moraine View. It was 250 miles or less from everyone who planned to come. Obviously since I picked the spot I became the organizer. Funny how those things turn out.
