Bob and Jackie:
I'll be posting more information on my website and in the file sections of the various yahoo groups that I belong to.
This will take place tonight or in the morning. I just got back from a trying day at the Dr. and then trying to find some rivets for a Newell coach.
I'm plumb tuckered out and an ice cold refreshment is in order.

    Sounds Great!!  Our registration will be in the mail tomorrow.  Please save us a 30 amp site.  We will be arriving early, but not sure what day. Probably 10/ 1, 2 or 3.  Let us know if there is anything you need help with.  Jack

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Jack,
That's too cool! are you bringing the Kitties?
They are free you know.
What we really need is a cook, dishwasher, parking valet, mechanic, attorney, bail bondsman, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer (see previous post for the caveat), welder, waitress, scullery maid, oh, geez,
I guess, if it's gonna be you and Paula, (mostly Paula and the Kitties!) you'll be welcome no matter.
Tell Sam & Company to hurry up here too!

Dallas, I've printed the form and filled it out and...as they say...the check is in the mail.  It'll go tomorrow.

Sounds like one helluva shindig you've cooked up for us.  My mouth is watering as I write.

Hail to all..let's make this the biggest blowout in Timminsville history!

PS I threw in a little extra for theHog!

Hi Dallas,
Looks like the power pole campsites are going fast, so in order to get a leg up, I sent mine via PAYPAL!  HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAAHH...sorry. 
Looking forward to the festivities and meeting bus owners! 
BTW,  I like that concept....Oktoberfest!
I'm not sure if the questionnair had this factoid on it, but 30A will serve my needs.  Save the 50A for those ALL ELECTRIC coaches.  ;)
Cheers, JR

JR,

I am working on the plan to get up there! ;)

Unfortunately the Atlantic hurricane season is in full swing by then so it will be a wait and see for me. >:(

When your in the 24/7 communications business, these storms can create lots of work.

Which means lots of O.T.

Which means lots of cash.

Which means the bus gets done faster.

Damn, I 'm not sure what to root for ;D ;D ;D

We will have to see how it pans out. ::)

Here is a link to my website with a flyer posted for those of you who don't happen to belong to any of the Yahoo groups.
At the bottom of the page is the registration form link.
Print out the registration form and send it with your payment, (including the camping fees) to the address listed.

Full hookup spots are limited, so hurry!

Dallas,

One Question, the 20.00 per night camping fee.

Is it the same for Full hookup, partial hookup, and dry camping? ???
