June 19 & 20 National's

We are at our Red Dale Wagon Train, National Rally in Holyoke, CO.  Sunday morning started slowly, it was Father's Day and I made sausage gravy & Biscuits for David, and he thoroughly enjoyed them!  After breakfast we walked around the still pretty empty fair grounds, chatting with folks and saying 'Hi'...

David got on a 4 wheeler with our friend Ron Bernard, and they started parking rigs as they came in.  It is quite a job parking these big rigs, making sure everyone has just enough space - and it is a tight fit for two big rigs in a fairground lot!!!  They did a great job!

I went walking around with Cinder, then moseyed up to the event center and got registered - got our meal tickets and badge for the 2011 rally.  It is really so great to see folks that we haven't seen for 2 years!  Woohoo! 

The Directors (courtesy of our sponsors) put on a hot dog feed from 12 - 2, hot dog, pizza bites, nacho's w/cheese, lemonade & ice tea...great lunch!

A bunch of us played Bingo from 3 - 4, then 7 of us went to the Golden Dragon, the local Chinese restaurant - and was it ever good!  Wow, small town feel and fantastic food...good friends!  Did NOT take the camera, but here are some pics from the day.  Oh, I didn't mention that while we were having our evening entertainment, the tornado sirens went off, and we all went into the tornado shelter - it touched down about a half mile from us!  Scary, but all were ok :)
