charge if you are a club member. If not then it is 20 dollars. That does not include
the camping fees. Randy

There is not usually anything specific planned for Sunday as many people end up going home that day. But some people do end up staying over on Sunday and may get together. I don't think you would miss anything.

We are planning a trip (not sure when yet) to a local winery if anyone is interested in joining us.

Paul is right that most of the Rally ends on Sunday morning and nothing is planned for Sunday except
coffee and pastries in the morning. Randy

Sorry to say that we will have to cancel going to the rally. On Wednesday traveling from Niagara Falls to Penn. on I-90 in NY. we were just coming into a construction zone going and stopping when we were rear ended by a suv doing 50-60 mph. We were not hurt,but the right rear of the 5th wheel took all the force.So far the estimate is $ 20,000 and it will take 6 to 8 weeks to fix . The guy in the suv is lucky to be alive. Considering how fast he was going,there were no skid marks,the 5th wheel was good with holding up. The truck was ok . We a full timers and making other living arrangements until we get the 5th wheel back which is in NY. Progressive is our insurance and they have been great so far. HAve fun at the rally and we will see you all done the road. Frank Sandidge

so i have to be the elephant in the room. Thoughts: the weather looks like it will be nice but a bit breezy. do we still attend? will we be getting in line on the highway with all the other evacuees on Sunday and crawl home? would we be better off giving up our site so evacuees have a place to go to? I'm playing wait and see. being our first rally we are really looking forward to attending but the eagle scout in me is looking at the practical side. anyone else have any thoughts that might make this decision easier?

I've had the same concerns along with the possibility that Tampa family is likely headed this way. I am getting ready to head to Pine Mtn because the forecast is saying we should be in a god spot. Pine Mtn, being nestled in some pretty nice hills should be somewhat protected from bad wind, of which, if I have my info right, shouldn't get there until Monday eve or Tuesday. As far as traffic goes, if your only way home is I75 southbound, I would have to agree. It's gonna be a crawl. I'll be using all back roads to get home.

Well, after careful consideration, unless something changes drastically between now and Friday we will be arriving on time for a 2 p.m. check in Friday. Funny, my son and his family are evacuating from Savannah. Told them they can stay in my house...were going camping. LOL.

Thanks Randy and Santha for a great final rally, we so appreciate all you have done for the Georgia Chapter! Congratulations to Paul and Sue, we have no doubt you will do a great job!

just a quick update, heard from Linda and Walter West, they did suffer some damage, trees and fence down, solar panels blown off roof, but the good news is they and their family are all fine! Cleanup starts today.

Santha and I want to thank all of you for joining us at the rally. We appreciate all the help
we had in cleaning the activity center for the rally. The rally would not have been a success
without all of the participation. Thank you Steve & Patty Lester, Paul & Sue Alfono, Joe &
Linda Shejbal, Tommy & Linda Sexton. Thank you for the help in cleaning the building and
also for the help putting the rally on. Thanks to Joe, Paul and Steve for smoking our dinner
Saturday evening. It had to be good, there was none left.

I also want to say that the 8 years we have been chapter leaders has only been successful
because of the support from club members and we thank you.

We also want to thank the Georgia chapter members for the framed thank you document
and water fountain which is on the counter in the kitchen and making noise.
Randy, Santha and the Poodles
