Wow! The last Hoosier Cruisers rally was another success. The Hoosier Cruisers appreciate the efforts of Harry and Connie Decausemaker who stepped up to the challenge of organizing a rally for October. Members arrived and setup camp at the Parke County Fairgrounds. It was a pleasure to have roomy sites that were level. After greeting each other, participants ate a delicious dinner of chicken and noodles which was great.
On Friday, members had a free day that allowed them to visit and shop all the vendors in Rockville and the surrounding small towns. As you can imagine several members found surprising treasureswhich were purchased.
Late afternoon many of the campers decided to have dinner at the Turkey Run Lodge. The lodge had a buffet of fresh produce for salad, and a good selection of sides and main entrees. No one left hungry. After everyone arrived back at the fairgrounds, a campfire was started. Dick Schumaker used his propane torch; so in no time the campfire was blazing. It was a great time to share stories of events and trips that had occurred over the summer. As eyelids got heavy, people slowly returned to their coaches to prepare for another day of fun.
Saturday began with a pitch-in breakfast at the campground. After eating the members continued to explore the area.
Of coarse another attraction for the rally were the covered bridges. In the welcome packets there was a driving tour to visit bridges in the area. After all were were visiting during the Covered Bridge Festival.
After shopping the Decausemakers had planned a “happy hour” which was also a “show and tell” where shoppers shared their adventures for the day.
In the evening, the Rally Masters, provided ham for the pitch-in dinner. As usual the meal was fantastic because there are many excellent cooks who are members of the club.
As the rally wound down, Bettie Wessel provided devotions on Sunday morning that reminded those who attended the rally that many blessings occur to them each and everyday.
AGAIN MANY THANKS GO TO THE DECAUSEMAKERS FOR A FUN, RELAXING RALLY!
