Cool - Norma was just asking about a potluck...
We need to stay home Friday evening, so we won't be down until Saturday morning.

See y'all then!

Thanks to Greg Finke (who we learned graduated from the SAME H.S. back East that I did, what were the chances of that quirky aside?) a bunch of us showed up at the "First Annual WA state Get-together" and a good SUNNY time was had by all. Grayland Beach State Park was green, clean and thoroughly delightful.

Simon and I arrived in drizzle on Thursday afternoon, but by late Friday afternoon the gray had disappeared, skies turned blue and more of you showed up. It just got better'n'better.

4/14 - Mike & Sandy ?
32 - John & Lisa G - Yes, friendly newcomers with their lil cutie patootie "Cody" all decked out in fancy schmancy necktie
41 - John & Marilyn - YES, with their lil fuzzybutt for Sat night only
42 - Sharon H. - didn't make it this time
49 - Larry & Carrie - sure thang in their spiffed up new oldie
50 - Deb & Chuck - sure thang, it their hot "new" '88 Big Foot 5th Wheel
51 - Ron M. - that rascal drove all the way from Lopez Island
53 - Bill G. and the "dogs" (Jacquie will be in San Fran) ?
54 - Greg F. - yep, and his wife "Brenda-ette" joined us too, Greg and I learning that we'd graduated from the same H.S. back east in NY state.
55 - Chris & Maureen - Yeppers, with Maureen baking a splending onion dish
58 - Paul & Norma - ?
60 - Simon & SharEn - that would be me

And there was also our W.I. pal Eric in his wonderous Perris Pacer, Jake and Judy in a spiffy Casita, and down from Bremerton came Cory & Betty, just for a few hours, driving in their noticable yellow & black "Smart Car."

To Cory AKA "Norm": As Simon and I returned by ferry to Whidbey Island, there were literally HUNDREDS of bikers getting off the ferry at Mukilteo, and on the Clinton side, hundreds more bikers getting on! We'd never seen so many bikers all at once!!! Too fun. We hope you had a safe ride. And a special "OOOOOOO" to you and Betty. Did I remember your names right?

We had a blast the entire weekend.
Notice I didn't say a word about the MERINO'S CLAM CHOWDER YOU ALL STOLE FROM ME!!!

Cheers till next fun time... Be well all... here're two happy snaps from our crampsite.

It was a fun weekend with beautiful weather sunny and warm on the beach. It was hard to believe it was the Washington coast 70 degrees! All 18 adults enjoyed the pot luck dinner Saturday night. Thank you Sharen for telling us where the good clam chowder was in Westport.

As was said already, a big "Thank You" goes out to Greg for stating the where and when of this gathering and tolerating all of us at the potluck. Seriously, it was a good time with good people as always. And the weather was surprisingly nice.

Thanks again!

Didn't Nick and Mary from Richland use site 58?
Norma wasn't feeling well and They were looking for a cancellation over on CC so I gave it to them. Turns out Norma has a sinus infection

Glad to hear y'all had a good time! Come to any decisions about next year?

YUP--- had a hoot-- thanx Greg and all for a fun weekend. We thought we were gonna drown when we arrived in Westport Wed afternoon..... and I only had one small blue tarp for a poncho. But, by Thurs when we got to Grayland, it was bearable and the weekend even nicer. Monday morning, too, before we left was nice. Here's a few snaps and also where we "stealth camped" above Ellensburg on the way home. (one just can't drive toooo far in one day ya know) L & C

Well, I finally decided to come home. It was too nice Monday and Tuesday, so I just had to stay until this morning (10/1). After a successful "first annual" get together, I took a much needed couple of extra days to recover from the tremendous ordeal of hosting the event,(lol) Hey, that's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! Actually, the event went just fine, and everyone helped out a great deal with all the logistics. Heck, I didn't even have to decide where to eat! It was truly amazing how little effort it takes to "host" an event with all the folks attending pitching in as they all did. What a great first event, the weather was great, even felt like summer! (well, I think that it's what summer would have felt like if we had one this year). But it was really pleasant. After the weekend crowd dissipated, I moved out to one of the sites closer to the beach for a few extra days.
Now we'll have to decide on what, when, and where for our next rally. As Jake and Judy said, we don't have to limit ourselves to just one event a year either...how true! So, anytime now, we can begin our discussions on the "2nd Annual WA State" get together. For those who couldn't attend, you missed a really fun time. There's no excuses now, since we are starting over again. The floor is open!
Greg

Thanks Greg and Brenda and Sharon and Simon and all the rest of the folks. It was a great excuse for me to get away from home and to see parts of the State I miss too much.

And Lopez isn't that far away.

We heard Deception Pass State Park on North Whidbey Island mentioned as a possibility, but Simon and I were talking the other day about Lake Wenatchee State Park. It's along the beautiful "Cascade Loop" and by late September thru mid-October after the kids have returned to school the park's not crowded. The lake is very picturesque and the dogs love it. You want to avoid hunting season, however, which begins around Oct 10. Lake Wenatchee's located not far from Leavenworth for those who enjoy oom pah pah music and bratworst. Check it out and throw into the mix of possibilities for the 2nd Annual WA State gathering. Greg, you did a great job in describing the complexities of organizing the Grayland gig! Hahaha.

A 'posser' for the group organizers.

I'm wonderin IF it might be better to change the venue for the meet to an 'other than' State park, similar to how we do our meets up here in Igloo Country??

IMHO: this system of reservation making is MUCH easier to deal with, ...one phone call/email to the event organizer (Craig in our case) and BANG, you're in (irrespective IF you want OR don't want to be camped next to 'so n so', or the Jello Popper Lady ).

The State Park system can prove to be un-necessarily pricy for making reservations and IF you have to cancel them, as BOTH require spending money!!!!

Anyhow, thats my 'Thought' For The Day.

......signed, ....
