May Rally - April 29th-May 2nd

The May Rally has a little something for everyone.  The rally masters and assistant rally masters have planned a variety of activities in a setting that is sure to please Hoosier Cruiser campers.  The rally will be located at West Boggs in Loogootee, IN.  Many of the campsites are located right on the lakes.  Each site will have electricity and water.  The dump station is located nearby in the park.  The campground has reserved a shelter that will be available to us for the entire weekend.  Listed below are a few of the opportunities available during this rally:
  • biking and hiking
  • fishing and boating
  • tour engine rebuilding plant
  • two museums
  • walking tour of historic West Baden
  • train ride on refurbished railroad cars
  • Amish buffet dinner
  • chili supper
  • business meeting
Check out the upcoming newsletter for additional details.  One important change is camping reservations are to be made directly with the West Boggs Campground.  They can be contacted at 812-295-3421.

E-mail Warning

A warning from Hoosier Cruisers' President, Greg Wessel:
 Unfortunately, my email contact list was hacked and a letter in my name was sent by email requesting money for my aunt.  THIS IS A SCAM!  Only a few members emails were in the list so most Hoosier Cruisers will not be affected by this SCAM.  Please do not respond to this request.  If you need to get in touch with me I have a new email address:

I am sorry that this has occurred and have reported it to Hotmail.
