I've called them on three different days now to make a reservation, but no one ever answers the phone. Is there a way to talk to these people? I prefer to make my reservations over the phone and not over the internet.

Today I called for the fourth time and emailed them for the second time. Both emails were undeliverable. Then I called the North park and was actually able to speak to some one. He confirmed that the South park is closed. He asked for my phone number and was told that I would get a call back. No call so far.

Ken, while we would love to join your rally, it would be the third weekend in a row for us and that four letter word "work" makes it hard. We may however, drive down for the day on Saturday if things work out.

A Little help here. I will be coming North on I69 and thought maybe I would cut across 20 instead of coming all the way up to 80/90 and then coming back down to the campground. Any thoughts on what route 20 is like?

Kbvols
04-28-2014, 07:43 PM
Mark
20 is the best way into Shipshe from 69. A lot better then taking 6 to 9 or 33. Toll road would be longer and other than 20 being 2 lane the road is better than toll road. It's only about 30 miles from Angola over to Shipshewana on 20 so not too far. Plus 20 comes in on the south side of the town and campground is only 1/4 mile or so from intersection so would avoid traffic thru town which can be slow at times.

Glad to hear that Nancy wants to shop, but I am worried that if you and Ken spend a couple of days in Elkhart Co that there will be no money left for fabric (or for property taxes which are due May 12 :(:( )

Hey Keith! Cool. Yeah, I wondered what the honk was for. I thought maybe I had my antenna up or stairs out and was being waved down :)

Well, the rally hold-overs had our traditional after-rally potluck tonight. Nice meal, followed by a campfire with 8 or so remaining couples. Most are leaving tomorrow (Monday) and a few of us are staying over Monday night and may get together and do something Monday.

Hoyt and Mary - I know you felt the pressure of planning and executing your first rally. You did an amazing job. And it will get easier going forward. Just don't try to top yourself.

Thanks to all 30 couples who attended the Indiana rally. Hope you had as much fun as we did.

Thanks also to North and South Central Region Directors, Coffman and Halvorsen. Your guidance and help during the rally surely was one of the ingredients of this weekend's success.

Some have asked me for the recipe for the chili I made during the Indiana rally. Well, I'm not much of a chili maker, more of a chili eater :)

Somehow, this chili took first place. Maybe it was because I used smoked beef chuck, maybe it was the heat - this chili is spicy. Regardless, that night, I wrote down what I used and how I made it.

I've put the recipe on my blog. Below is a link to the recipe. Scroll to the bottom of the recipe and click on the red PDF image to download a nicely formatted version that will print and save well.
