Are kids welcome to the rally? Is the cruise discounted more for kids?

NWTFHunter

More information on the dinner cruise cost. The usual cost for the 2 hour dinner cruise is $39.95 for adults and $21.95 for children 7-13 years. I have been quoted a group price that is discounted $3.00 per person so I asume that applies to children also if part of our group. Groups need to be paid by one person so I'll do that and each family can reimburse me.

Great Jim,
I'll add your names to the list. As far as payment for the dinner cruse you can do that when you are at the Rally. The cost will be about $35 per person and will depend on our final number. There will be more information as we get closer to the date.

Hey Michael,
Well we've decided to leave our "summer home" here in the Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming and go to the MO rally! Hope everyone will accept our dirty 5er & truck. The 5er hasn't been washed since we left MO to go to the Gillette Rally, and it's so dusty where we are volunteering, I'll wash the truck and 1/2 hr later you can't really tell it was washed! Also like Don & Diane said, if it isn't too late sign us up for the cruise also. We'll be taking our time driving cross country, and may arrive early, just have to take it as it comes. Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

Bernie,
Sally has been have EXTREME withdrawals from Munzees since Cody. #1 is that I think she only saw 1 in about 40 miles from where we were, #2 is that the app stopped working. She just got it squared away a few minutes ago. We are spending the night in Cabela's campground in Sidney, NE, and from the sounds of things (thanks to you) we won't be making any time tomorrow. She's already telling me she's going to have to stop at almost every rest stop. You are going to pay when we get to Hannibal!!!!!!

Sally and Roy are on their way, I see she is capturing my Munzees up on I80. Hurry up and get here. It is lonely here. Bill and Barb dropped their rig off yesterday and then went home. Judi and I are the only ones here.

Looks like you've created a monster Bernie:rolleyes:. Git yourself a bottle of Fireball....the troops will be there soon enough.

Have a great time at your rally. We're leaving tomorrow for the rally in Fort Collins

Yep we are on our way, should be there Thur...if I can keep Sally out of the rest areas! We only made it to Kearney, NE today. Had to stop at almost every rest area so she could Munzee! We've got some Fireball, but if this keeps up I'll have it, all our beer & anything else I can find gone before we get there!

Dave, have fun in CO, maybe we should have gone to that one, at least Bernie probably didn't leave a Munzee every 500 feet!!!

Jim,
I'm not doing it yet. My phone is from the Stone Age. Sally is sallybear on the Munzee forum. Be careful...Sally is ate up with it! I can tell from now on I won't be able to make any time going anywhere. 10 hours to go 300 miles, good thing we are retired & don't have any deadlines!!!

Dave, I thought Roy was gonna hit me when they got here. He should realize how slim and trim she's gonna stay, chasing all them Munzees.
