May Rally - Vevay, IN - May 3rd

It may seem hard to believe, but spring is just around the corner. The Wessels and Rusters have planned an exciting weekend beginning Thursday, May 3rd. The rally is going to be held in Vevay, Indiana, a little town in southern Indiana. This year we will be camping at Follow the River Campground. The facilities are excellent and the club will have the use of a large meeting room that is heated. This will be a real plus since it is hard to predict what the weather will be like in May.

As the coaches arrive they will be parked on large cement pads that provide full hook-up. That evening members can elect to join others and have dinner at Mo’s Steakhouse. The campground meeting room will be available for those who want to share their experiences this winter or maybe play a few hands of cards.

Friday will begin with a pitch-in breakfast. The club has great cooks and it is a delight to share in the good food. After breakfast members can visit the Switzerland County Historical Museum and the Life on the Ohio Museum. All members will receive coupons for free admission to the museums. Members will be treated to a “haystack” dinner in the meeting room. If you haven’t had a “haystack” before it is a mouthwatering delight. After dinner Hoosier Cruisers will be able to enjoy the night life of Vevay. The town will provide live local entertainment and free carriage rides.

The next day starts with the “world famous donuts” prepared by Nancy Ruster. Last year they were a great hit. There is nothing like fresh donuts. The rest of the day will be spent in nearby Madison where members may take a tour of the power plant or take a behind the scenes tour of the Lanier home. For those who have visited Madison before, some may just enjoy shopping and touring the town of Madison.
 Returning to the campground late afternoon, plan to enjoy the Kentucky Derby and participate in a happy hour. To make this celebration even more fun, members are asked to wear their derby hat. The derby just wouldn’t be the derby without the over the top hats that are worn by derby goers. Dinner will include Kentucky fried chicken with members providing the side dishes. We will watch the Kentucky Derby on a big screen and root for our favorite horse. To continue the festivities we will have our own horse races in the clubhouse with winners receiving prizes.

On Sunday members can attend a church service at a church next to the campground.

We are looking forward to seeing all our friends who are certain to have many tales about their adventures this winter. Hope to see you all at the spring rally.
