Two people really made this rally
happen as it should.
took the reins this year. She said this was her first time at such an endeavor and was quite nervous about whether or not she could deal with the details. As she was not even sure what the details were supposed to be!
I think she did as good a job as could possible be done, even by someone more experienced. She tied some new things and they worked. All the right things she did
resulted in a lot of folks registering for 2015, before leaving.
Then behind the scenes was Jean
. Jean voluntarily took the reins in 2012.
Without her, Cherokee rallies would have most likely not happened
after the one in 2011.
She applied her personal touch and made C-2012 a success. Seems there were about 35+/- rigs attending. And Word got out!
Jean lead again in 2013. Rig count was nearly double that of 2012. And many people registered for 2014 before leaving the 2013 rally
. Yes, it was that enjoyable!
Due to extended traveling, Jean was not planning to be at C-2014 but was kind enough to create a nice "Official" web page. So she was still with us from afar. She listed the activities, and participants list, and made countless additions, subtraction's, and changes. She also served as adviser when asked. Her travels took her to Texas around the first part of October. She made it a point to register and, from Texas, came to C-2014. Quietly helping where needed.
There were others that helped make it so enjoyable. I don't know who all did what, but a few names come to mind.
did table cloths and decorations for as many Pot Luck tables as she had supplies for.
took charge of the Dutch Oven demo.
did the rally
fire Friday night.
So many folks volunteered to help with putting together the name tags during Sweet and Greet. And helped prepare the Rec Room before and after Pot Luck. Those that gave donations to help with expenses. Those that opened their trailers for Show of Homes. And those that had campfires every night and welcomed anyone that stopped by.
Thanks to all!
