The Chuckwagon Rally July 21-24

Ok, I have some news, I am sorry but there will be no Karaoke on Sat. night. I have tried, and tried to contact the fellow, he doesn't reply. I am thinking maybe he was offered a bigger event for that night, so we are moving on from there, sorry to those who wanted it.

I am kind of thinking this is turning into a camp-out, with several activities, and hope you don't all mind??? Let me know, what you think!

So far we have 15 sighed up

Rally July 21-24 2011

I am just way to excited to see you all at the Rally!! It is going to be so much fun, and a lot of laughs!!

I am wondering if Scott and Kathy can keep their title of, Bowling Champions?

Who will win the Cowboy hat contest? HMMMMMMMMM ??

Who will tell the most unusual thing that has happened to them, while camping, or towing their trailer?? During the campfire?

Norm and Julia, are bringing their ice-cream maker, anyone else?

I am excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I found someone to actually tear off old hitch from van, put on new one, and put a two inch ball on it.

After all this time, and everyone refusing to deal with it,I finally went to an old hitch place my husband and I used, 20-30 years ago. Some of you have seen my van, as everyone calls it the Beast, It is a sight to behold, BUT, I don't care,lol Whoever put the hitch on before I got it welded it on there, right next to tha gas tank, not a good idea!

I am just thankful I will have something to tow my trailer for now!! Besides, it runs good, and is paid for lol, It is a Hippy van . The hitch had to be ordered and will be here maybe monday. I had them get a frame hitch to make sure it was safe!!

As you know I am watching the river, we are having flooding in the low lying areas. Tonight they said, they are bringing in dirt for Riverside, where I live, to try and keep flood waters out. They said, that this will be the worse flooding in 54 years, so I am a bit concerned. The campground is 1/3 under water, and going up, South Sioux City, is planning flood preparedness. They say they are letting more water out of the Yankton Dam, which will raise the water here, we will just wait and see, and will keep you posted!!

Mandie just called, and said, they updated the news on water levels. I live about five miles from Dakota Dunes, they are pretty much cleaning their houses out,and will be evacuated in the next few days. Sioux City is now suppose to have 3-4 feet over flood stage.
I will be moving Mandies camper to higher ground this next week. Mandie and I were talking, she decided as long as the dogs and I are safe, the house doesn't mean much, and I agree!! She is so sweet! I figure what will be will be, I am not going to stop a river .
Anyway, the Rally is kind of up in the air, but we are ready and excited about it! We have all our ducks in a row, and watch the campground daily. Those of you that are familiar with the campground, the part that is yearly rentals is under water, the walking bridge to that area is under water, and one of the rental cabins is flooded so far.
I don't want to seem overly dramatic here, I just don't know what to tell you all. I am hoping the Rally will be on, and pass the hotdogs LOL
Is anyone else dealing with the flood situation in the group?
Sue

Mom is so right,I did say that her and the dogs are more important than the house or "CAMPY" any day...THose things can be replaced,mom and the dogs can't...Goin home from work yesterday (from south sioux) the water is up to the interstate,and has taken over the soccer fields and alot of scenic park....South sioux is bracing to get flooded....The Dakota dunes are being evacuated and people are taking there things and goin to higher ground..They are already flooded....Mom bein out in Riverside scares me...The river is ready to go over the banks..They said that we are to be at least 7 ft over flood stage by Friday..ANd its just the beginning....Please pray for mom and the people around here....Thank you!!! Mandie

Rally Canceled

I have decided to cancel the rally for this year, and will continue next year. The park has started to contact the people with June reservations, and are giving the money back that folks made with credit cards etc. They will be doing this for July, as soon as they are sure the campground won't be open,(very unlikely)
I will be sending folks rally fees back to them, please be patient, as I have a few things on my mind.
There was a meeting tonight for my part of town, we are to clear out our basements, I won't go all into detail, but Mandie and C are coming over tomorrow to get stuff out of basement. Chad is on flood duty, and calls everyday to check on mom, a little stressed he can't be here, I have Caitlan.
I have gotten calls from camping buddies, e-mails,notes, and I appreciate it! I just want to thank you all!! You are very understanding , you don't know how much that means to us here!!Gail, you were right, I don't like to disappoint people, so it does bother me. Pat thank you for the advice and being there, Kris, thanks for the call and notes , Bob, Norm and everyone else THANK YOU!! Hugs!!

Yes but they are flooding, and not sure what is going to happen there either. If someone wants to go there, I am all for them, but I am out of the rally this year. But thanks Carl

...THANK YOU!! Hugs!!
Des Moines flooded in 1993 - it was tragic.
Cleaning up is gut wrenching and time consuming, with no clean water, no power, and heat of July.
Sioux City rally without Sioux City Sue?
No thank you.
I will wait to rally with Sue.

Stay safe
