Paul, I too, think your summation is spot on.
I was involved in setting up some 19 tours for the early workers, those who make the event happen. It took my wife and I, along with 5 others, a total of 5 days to set them up, then another 7 days worth of 'administration' to make them happen, just to provide 'a little something to say thanks for their volunteer work'. These are the free tours of local businesses, manufacturing plants, etc.
Many folks enjoy what the volunteers do to make it happen, and it is a very large joy to see others enjoying what you've put together.
Come join the volunteers!

A Great Time! Ended Too Soon!

Danielle and I have just returned from the rally. WOW! And I do mean WOW! We had a great time. As first timers, the event was sometimes overwhelming. I decided to attend as many seminars as possible not knowing when I might have the opportunity to attend another International. Sometimes Danielle and I divided and conquered to attend seminars being held simultaneously. We were so busy at the rally we had to return home to get some much needed rest.

The happy hours and impromptu dinners were lots of fun. There was so much going on that we could not take it all in. Even though this was not camping (in the sense of staying at a state park, etc.) it was many of the things we enjoy about camping plus some... Meeting the wide variety of people young and old, working, retired, nearly retired made for a great event.

We've attached some pictures from the rally. The indoor shots leave a little to be desired (guess we have to work on our flash technique).

See ya down the road!

Lucius & Danielle

A Few More Pics

The dancing flamingo (and the rest of the North Texas Unit) clinched the "Best Of" award at the July 4th parade.

Hey, the Stones played in Regina, Saskatchewan of all places so why not Billings? They are as old as many of us on the forums. I suspect they'd want a lot more gold than all this silver would be willing to pay - too bad one or more of them are not into Silver bullets.

It sounds like those who attended had a tremendous time. Glad it was well worth the trip.

I enjoy music of all ages.

There are some good tunes before 1960 that I enjoy. some early rock tunes are cool.. Drifters, Platters, Little Anthony etc. I heard the last Drifter died yesterday at 81 yrs old. Sad day Down on the BOARDWALK,,,,Was his name Bill Pinckney???
