Moraine View

As far as looking for other sites to rally at, I am a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

Moraine was beautiful and well set up for a large group.

The caretakers were GREAT to us.. the little lady at the office woudln't let me pay for my site for the second night because we didn;t have our trailer. (and wereen't going to sty overnight) We were going to pay her so we coudl park in it while we went to the pot luck. I told her that the little man on the golf cart was chasing me around over where we were parked, and she said "that's my husband and he thinks he's the sheriff.. I'll handle him."

I can't imagine them searching us for chocolate milk..... that might be an important thought in the future!

I have a suggestion for a site to have a Rally! It would be the rustic Yogi Bear Campground! You have the luxury of parking yards away from your neighbor in a parking lot - no trees or anything to get in your way or obscure your view (don't forget to pull the shade in those rear bathrooms!). I could easily speak to at least 6 of my neighbors from the comfort of my picnic table if there weren't these mysterious buzzing clouds....wait, those aren't clouds - they're swarms of angry bees high on spilled Kool Aid and gummi bears. The pools are so saturated with people that you can't stand in them without touching someone - I think if all were to leave the pool, a 2" puddle of water would remain. But it is such welcome relief to the heat with water tempertature of 400 degrees. Mom always said, "don't eat yellow snow," but someone tell me, what's the rule for yellow swimming pools? hmmm....There is a beach to swim at. If you are lucky, they'll rent you a golf cart -very limited availability so call early -$80/day. Otherwise you have to tote your kids and all of your swimming supplies (toys, drinks, towels, etc.) at least a mile to get to the beach to sit arm and arm with 100 other people. Our children were thrilled to catch a glimpse of a very hot Yogi Bear zipping around in a golf cart . Each sighting resulted in a chase (on foot) to see him up close. But by the time we made it to where he was, he was somewhere else. If you like to fish, there is a second lake for fishing that, we were told, froze solid over the winter and was home to nothing. Still, children line the sides of the lake, poles in hand, staring hopefully at little red and white bobbers. You can canoe or paddle boat on it if you like - that is if you can stand the stench. Will still speaks fondly of "Lake Stinky." With the charge for the site, the extra people, the screen tent..blah blah blah... I think we paid a bargain $60/night for our spot. And guess what.......we plan to do it again in August! Perhaps we can make it a Rally?

We would like to tell the rally participants what a nice time we had again this year. And what a turn out!! It was great re-aquainting withpeople we met last year and meeting a few more this year. The only draw back seemed to be the heat/humidity conditions which detered us from getting to all the sites to say, "Hi".

We will use our "Custom Signs by Zamboni" Forums Rally sign again at Mackinaw City along with a Flamingo ..or two... from Ron & Tony of TCL, inc.. Our "fearless leader" Jack and Patti key fob from " Gifts by Clever Cannavera" will sport a spare set of keys for Cupcake. AND our prize for traveling the most miles (448 mi.), THE Airstream bird house, compliments of Tim & Laura from the Zamboni group, is currently hanging from our pot rack so we can show it off!!
Thank you all for your time and efforts, including the delicious dishes everyone brought to the pot luck, that made this rally so much fun and so memorable.

We look forward to meeting you again,

Sue & Ike

P.S. The cutest wooden salad fork (with a carved red chili pepper at the top) at the was left at the pot luck tables. I believe Norbert has it - if not, perhaps someone will correct me so it can be returned. It would be a shame to break up such a cute set!

I hope Norbert enjoys the chili pepper thingie ... too funny that it should be the only thing I left behind--it was part of a wedding gift for a marriage that endured from June 2000 until, let's see, well into March 2001... so, cute though it may be, it only reminds me of how I would like to beat someone over the head with it.

Sorry Norbert. I'm way bad at names/faces.

Also, I forgot to say thanks to the fantom maker of the Airstream ID cards. Everyone thought them to be very cute, as did I. Thank you!! (fess up??)

Hello, Silvertwinky! Sure enough, that's how it looked! Your pictures, however, don't quite convey the moist weight of the air and the glaze of sweat on skin Thanks for sharing, and we hope the rest of your summer is going great!
