Great Rally in Historic Madison IN

Hoosier Cruisers gathered at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds near Madison, IN.  Coaches arrived on Thursday and after setting up members had a delicious dinner at The Pines.  All agreed that it was one of the best buffets they had eaten.

Friday was a busy day beginning with a tour of the Royer Corp.  They are known for their swizzle sticks, but they also produce many other small plastic items and sell to many large companies including Disney, Amazon, and casinos.  We were shown the process for developing a new product from design to production. Fascinating!

Then the group was treated to a tour of historic Madison on a trolley.  The driver shared many interesting facts and stories about Madison.  Walking down the streets of Madison is like stepping back in time.  The architecture has been maintained from the 1900"s and the gardens are beautiful year round.  The day ended with a meal of  "Sloppy Joe" sandwiches, chips, and cookies which had been prepared and served by Bettie Wessel and Darlene Gebhart.

The next morning the Greg Wessel and Jack Gebhart flipped pancakes until everyone was full.  Beginning with a hardy breakfast of sausages and pancakes, everyone was ready for a day of fun.
Some members shopped, others visited historic sites, while still others tried the local wineries.  The city also had a festival called, "Soup, Stew, and Brew" which added to the opportunities available during the rally.  The day ended with a carry-in dinner and a huge board game which brought about much laughter.  Winners were treated with certificates for a "candle light dinner", VIP parking,  a portable RV dishwasher, and a weeks worth of cookies.  This ended a day of fun and laughter.

Sunday was the last day of the rally which included a breakfast of donuts, juice, and coffee.  Following breakfast Sandra Ashton had devotions which focused on the hymn "Nearer My God to Thee".  It was a moving explanation of how the hymn has impacted the lives of many people.

And, luckily the rains held off and everyone was able to leave the fairgrounds for a safe trip home.

The new calendar for the club is being developed for next year's rallies and events.  Make sure that you follow the news and mark your calendars.  You won't want to miss out on next year's club activities.
