Hidalga did a very nice job summarizing the types of things available for our upcoming rally in Bardstown. This summary is below. I've noted the things CindyL and I will be doing. The only formally scheduled thing is the Saturday evening potluck dinner at 5 p.m. Everything else is open for you to explore and make your own adventure! See you all in a bit over a week!
Eggs A La Bourbon Schedule of Events
Hosts: Cindy & Kevin, site #2, checking in on Wed. June 8th
This is our personal schedule except for the Saturday evening potluck.
Thursday, June 9
Golf in a.m. for Kevin and Cindy if weather permits.
The golf course is right next to the campground and fees are very reasonable. We played 9 holes with a cart and the fee was about $19 per person. Tee times start at 7:30 a.m. and should be made in advance (by walking over to the Pro Shop!). It seems to be fairly busy right away in the mornings, but opens up toward noon. We went at 7:35 and weren't rushed by other groups.

5:00 - Potluck dinner
Free-range potluck dinner. No program is planned. Visit with new/old friends! We set the time a bit early if people want to buy tickets to the My Old Kentucky Home/Stephen Foster musical at 8 p.m. Cindy and I will furnish hot dogs and buns for everyone. Bring your own meat if hotdogs aren’t your thing. Also, please bring a dish to pass and bring your own plates and silverware. We will furnish lemonade, but other drinks are up to you. We plan to eat at the picnic tables on the golf course clubhouse grounds just behind site 2 if the weather is OK. Otherwise, there is no available shelter nearby, so we might have to make alternate plans. (Lots of umbrellas and lawn chairs?)
