GLASS Rally Fun

The club was well represented by its members. Seventeen coaches arrived on Thursday and caravanned into the Fairgrounds. Other Hoosier Cruisers had already arrived which brought the total to over 25 coaches.

Several Hoosier Cruisers went to lunch at the Tabor Hill Winery. They had an excellent lunch and enjoyed the view of the vineyards.

After lunched some of the members traveled to see the round barn which had been moved to its location in Berrien Springs, MI.

Friday, Greg Wessel accepted a certificate that recognized the Hoosier Cruisers' 35th Anniversary.

Jane and Ernie Clashman were recognized as Outstanding Members for their many years of service as recruitment ambassadors for the club. They will no longer be manning the Chapter Fairs at the many FMCA rallies, but will continue as members of the club.

Can you imagine, over 45 Hoosier Cruiser showed their FMCA spirit and served the Saturday evening dinner to over 800 attendees at the rally. The food was great, but the fellowship was even better.
The rally was a success. There were a wide variety of seminars to attend, fantastic entertainment, a car show that exhibited cars from the 1920's to a Smart car that was fitted to be towed.
If you enjoy having fun with friends, super entertainment, and learning more about your coach, plan to attend the rally in Bowling Green, OH.

May Rally

Inspite of the occassional sprinkles, the Hoosier Cruisers had a great time. Attendees chose from a smorgasbord of interesting sights around Clarksville and Louisville. Members visited an outstanding flower and garden show, Falls of the Ohio State Park, the Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat Museum, and many other places of interest.

The rally also provided delicious food including a pancake breakfast.

Members worked on a challenging jigsaw puzzle.

All those who attended enjoyed the fellowship, swapping tall tales, and sharing jokes.
Our hats go off to the Rally Masters, Rem Remley and Judy Hohl, who organized an outstanding rally. THANKS!

June Rally Update

This is just a reminder about our June Rally (4-7) in Howard County. We have added two additional events that may be of interest. While the service expert is answering questions about inverters and converters, at 4pm on Thursday, other members can tour the Greentown Glass Museum, which is only a few blocks away. On Saturday afternoon, after our Grissom AFB Museum tour, those of you like old cars can stop by the annual BOP Cruise In (Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac) This is normally a big event and is held at Highland Park. The other events, which are described in the prior newsletter are the Glass factory in Kokomo, where they make stained glass, just about the same way they made in in the 1890s. Then we have the Automotive Heritage Museum, which has become better every year. I will be your tour guide for that event. The Howard County 4H Fairgrounds, located in Greentown, is among the best in the state and have 150 campsites, many with 20,30 and 50 amp plug ins. We will be set up adjacent to the events building we will be using. This is a very affordable and I look forward to seeing many of you there! If you have questions call me at: 574 223 8557 or 574 780 3575.
