Boomer Rally – Day 3

Saturday at the rally started with a potluck breakfast, and a Memorial Day tribute.  As usual, breakfast was very good, with plenty of great food. 

Sandy Creekmore and Don Allen, members of the club, put together a great Memorial Day show to honor the people who serve to protect our country.  Here are a few photographs from the ceremony…

At 1:00pm, the “Texas Hold-em Poker” tournament began.  There were ten of us that entered the contest, and unfortunately, I was the second one to get busted out!!!  I did when the tournament in 2007.  Here is a picture of the traveling trophy….

On Saturday night, we had live entertainment….. a guitar and a fiddle player.  They were lively and entertaining.  The fiddle player has played with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and others (in his day!!!!).  Some folks took the opportunity to dance.  Here are a few pictures…….

Since Patsy and I were headed to a Spartan Chassis Homecoming rally in Charlotte, MI, we left the rally a day early.  On Sunday and Monday, we put in more than 1100 miles…..kinda like in the pre-retirement days!

On Sunday, we left at about 11:00am and made it to a Wal-Mart in Tulsa, OK.  On Monday, we drove to Effingham, IL, and spent the night in another Wal-Mart lot.  This is my reason for posting this blog on Tuesday night.  

More later………….
