We chalked up another win in the Alumalina column only because of the terrific folks that came and shared their time and talents for the good of all.
So many folks contributed to the success that my 2 typing fingers will wear out trying to THANK EVERYONE. But....an attempt.....
The greeter. Welcomed 180 rigs, delivered the mail.
The rally bag stuffers. 10 pounds of stuff in a 5 pound bag.
The short order cooks on the hot dog team. 300 perfect hot dogs.
Those that showed up and enjoyed the fresh coffee and doughnuts. Prepared at 5am.
The Possum bog crew....totally awesome, gentlemen. You have the job for life.
Friends of Rita....she had another blast...as always. Thanks for contributing to her needs.
The original MrCoffee for fresh coffee each morning.
The fry cooks....what a production. 400 fish plates served fresh, hot, timely, and with a smile. You are also hired for life.
All the seminar leaders....splendid work. All the seminars were packed, thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience.
The North 40 Crew....all you that joined us in the overflow area...ya'll did good!!! By all accounts everyone survived out there just fine. My hat is off to you, that was an Alumalina first and you are all now part of Alumalina history.
Those that brought your families...many thanks. We have had the great pleasure of watching many of them grow up with us (and some out grow us) and it is always a great thing to have them with us. They are our future, we must take good care of them.
The King and Queen of scare....you went above and beyond this year. You also have the job for life.
All those trick or treeters, big and small. Nicely done. A new Alumalina tradition. Thanks for dressing the part.
Dr Clutch....heckuva job
The Cast Iron Crew....you folks always make it look easy.
The firemen....thanks, enjoyed the great fireplace.
All those who picked up, tossed out, cleaned up. 2 dumpsters this year.
The folks that got us all registered and accounted for...huge task, well done...as always. Way above my pay grade.
The gamblers.... you helped keep us flush with a minimum rally fee. Thanks for purchasing the raffle tickets.
The donors....of door prizes. The best EVER.
The sponsors....sponsors make all the difference. PLEASE drop them a note of thanks, their names were in your packet.
Mr Microphone.... you saved the day...again
The peddlers....nice turn out for the flea market/crafts. Hope you did well. BTW...booth rent doubles next year
A big thank you to everyone that came. It is YOU that make Alumalina so special.
Last but absolutely not least...a huge THANK YOU to Terry and Annie, who worked tirelessly months before and during the event to make this family reunion happen. It could not have been done without you.
We are already working on next year, no dates or venue have been set but look for the same time slot. It is much to early to let the cat out of the bag.
OK....my 2 typing fingers need a break.
