Additional Info:

Oak Grove RV park is located just off the Branson Strip close to many activities. Pads are all concrete. They have pull-throughs and back-ins. I suggest if you want a pull through, book early to assure you get one as they are limited. We have set a deadline of March 15 to register so we can be grouped together. If you book later, you may be in a site away from group. It is not a big park so shouldn't be a problem. The rates quoted are Good Sam and Veterans discounts. As you can see, weekly rates are better. Call the park directly to book your site and then post your dates on this site so we can get numbers. If you wish to call us with your dates, our numbers are: Larry: 417-337-0821 (tel:417-337-0821) Gayle: 417-337-0354 (tel:417-337-0354).

So glad you guys can make it. It has been a while since we have seen you two. Can't remember if it was at a rally in Amana or a national rally. Where in Texas do you go? We were in Aransas Pass Texas for about a month. Kind of cold but it is colder here.

Good morning everyone from chilly central FL.
Brenda and I are on a waiting list for the Branson rally.
We are register for the National rally in June.
Have been in a email string with Gayle. Her son lives in the town next to where we live.
She is going to set up a small get together for some of the MO chapter members, a meet and greet. That will be fun, to know some of the folks before we get to the National rally.
We are looking forward to tne National rally. Sounds like a grat time. We will arrive there on June 4. We are going on the South Bend tour. That tour,I have heard is awesome. On a waiting list for the Elkhart tour, and one of Amish dinners. We will be camped in the south area.
See you at the rally.
I just filled out the area about my profile, and when I can figure out how to add a photo I will. Can someone tell me how to add a profile photo?

Hi Bill,
To add a picture, go to click on Settings in upper right corner of home page. Once that opens, you will find a place to edit your profile--you will find a place there to add a picture. Hope that works, it has been while since we updated it. Look forward to meeting you guys the end of month.

Hi Everyone,
We are about 2 months out from our rally. Working on the agenda. We have so many things to do in Branson but one of the things says "Branson" is a music show and buffett. I can get us in to a great music show and buffett for $32.00 per person. The music show is Grand Country Jubilee at the Grand Country Resort in Branson. This is one of our favorite shows in Branson. We saw it a couple of years ago as a group and everyone seemed to really enjoy. The show changes every year so it will be different except for a few audience favorite. I will need to put a deposit down soon so I would like to know who might like to do this. I need 20 people for the group rate. The usual price for the show is 40.92 and the evening buffet is 14.99 so it is a pretty good value for Branson. Please let me know if you are interested. I would pay show/meal and collect the money from you on Thursday at Meet and Greet. Thank you.

Larry and Gayle
03-12-2019, 12:48 PM
Yeah!! Still working on our little get-together in Festus. Have not heard back yet from the other folks. Will let you know. If they can't come, it will be just us.

Hi Everyone!
Just signed up our 5th couple for the show/dinner. We need 20 people to get group rates. Please let me know if you are interested. I need to give them a down payment by end of month so would like to know I have 20. After that I can change the number up to 48 hours prior to show.

Also getting together some nice door prizes. We have some Unique products donated--they are tank treatments and they are great. We have been using them for 5-6 years. We got a sample at a rally and have been using ever since. Snap Pads have donated a couple of Snap Pads as a door prize--we use them as well. Stuff for ladies as well. Door Lock will also be donating a Locking System--we love ours. That will be our grand prize.

Looking forward to our rally. We do have some first timers so us oldtimers will need to show them how to have a good time.

See you all soon

For those of you that would like more info on the proposed show and dinner I have a link to their website --(https://www.grandcountry.com)
This is the main site. The proposed show is the Grand Country Jubilee which is at 7:30 PM. You will be able to see a few samples of the show under the "Live Shows" heading. The quartet is very good and along the lines of the Oak Ridge Boys. The meal will be the buffet in the evening before the show. Usually has carved roast beef and ham, baked and fried chicken, chicken fried steak, chicken pot pie (my favorite), vegetables, corn puffs (another favorite), salad bar, dessert bar, and fresh baked rolls. Can you tell we eat there a lot--I have the menu almost memorized. Currently 8 couples signed up. This activity is at a cost of $32.00 per person.

Hi Everyone
We currently have 32 folks signed up for dinner and music show so will put down the deposit. That will be Friday evening. We will caravan over to the venue. We will leave park at 5:45. Dinner will be at 6:00PM and show at 7:45. The venue has several shops and a candy store to keep up occupied between dinner and the show. I have 48 hours prior to the show to make changes to the numbers so if you didn't get signed up and wish to go I need to know prior to Wednesday May 8. Also if you need to cancel, the same applies. I have to have 20 people to get the group rate. I will be paying all the tickets on Wednesday so please let me know prior to that. I will collect the money for the show/dinner on Thursday at the Meet and Greet.

Thursday: many will already be in park but we do have some that will be checking in. We will have coffee and pastries Thursday morning for those who are at the park. You will have the day to explore Branson or just relax in the park and visit will old friends and make new friends. We do have some first time rally folks which is wonderful
At 5:30 we will have our Meet and Greet in the Rally hall. We will have hot dogs/chili dogs, buns, chips, and ice cream. All you need to bring is your favorite beverage.

Friday morning: coffee and pastries
Friday evening: dinner and show

Saturday morning: coffee and pastries
Saturday evening: Pot luck, door prizes, 50-50 drawing. Club will furnish meat. Please bring covered dish to share and you beverage

Sunday: coffee and pastries will be available. Good byes to those leaving today.

Looking forward to a good time with everyone. Excited to share Branson will you. I will start posting some places that might be of interest to you--some are free, almost free, or not freed.

Getting closer to our rally. As I stated earlier I would be posting some other things to see around Branson. For those of you new to the area, one place we always recommend is touring College of the Ozarks otherwise know as "Hard Work U". Students work for their tuition so when they graduate they are not burdened with student loans. There are many sites where the students work--hotel, restaurant, greenhouse, dairy, bakery, museum, grist mill, weaving, and much more. The link to the site is (http://www.cofo.edu/content/visiting.aspx?myID=1564). Best part is the tour is free but you may be enticed into buying some things especially their home made ice cream.

Also have finalized the meat for Saturday night. It will be pulled pork and smoked chicken.

Just called the RV Park to sign up, but had to leave a message. Hopefully, they'll call me back this afternoon. We plan on arriving g on May 8 and leave on May 13. We would like to sign up for the Dinner/Show also. I'll post confirmation as soon as I hear back from the park.

EDIT: Well, the park called this morning and, unfortunately, there are no sites left big enough for us to get into. Maybe next year.

So sorry to hear that. I knew they were pretty full but sometimes they have cancellations. There is a KOA less than 1/2 mile from the rally campground if you are interested in joining us. It is pretty nice. Let us know if you decide to do that. Also Treasure Lake is a possibility. Joe and Ann Maxwell are staying there. I believe the cost is $10.00 per night and you could be their guest and get that rate.

Branson is home to many beautiful golf courses but this one by Johnny Morris who owns Bass Pro is one of the best. You don't have to golf to enjoy this place. They have an extensive museum of natural history with lots of indian artifact gathered before Table Rock dam caused the water to back up and form Table Rock Lake. You can also do a tour of the area via golf cart. Several years ago a large sink hole opened just below the museum and took our part of the golf course. He is currently excavating this sink hole and is going to build a big lodge around it. As of a couple of week ago they have taken over 17,000 truck loads of dirt and rock out of this sink hole. Looks kind of like a small Grand Canyon. There is a charge for the museum and tour. You can follow this link for information (https://bigcedar.com/attractions/top-of-the-rock)

Thank you! We enjoyed seeing everyone and meeting new folks. As you know it is tiring and we are still trying to catch up. We are in Iowa to see family but haven't told them we are here. Going to rest for a couple of days

Thanks Gus. The highlight for us was the show Mary Wilson and Debra put on at the music show. I think they had fun and that's what it is all about.

Good afternoon HOC members who were at the MO rally in Branson. Well did Brenda and I have a unexpected surprise. Yes, we signed up for Sky Med, right before the pot luck dinner. Sunday at 11:45 PM, Brenda had emergency appendectomy. It was perforated, soshe was placed on IV antibiotics for 48 hours. We were going to leave Monday morning. Gayle came by for a visit before they left for Iowa, and she asked if we had signed up for Sky Med. Yes, we did. She said that they will get Brenda home and get our coach home. She called Diane, the lady who geve the presentation. Diane called Sky Med as soon as she hung up with Gayle. 2 minutes later my phone rings, its Jim,the VP of Sky Med. Tells me not to worry, Sky Med will do what it takes to get us home. He asked if I had a friend that I would trust to drive the rig back home. Yes, I do, he just got home with his fifth wheel from a fishing trip. And he lives next doot to me. Jim said they would pay Ted to drive us home. OMG, the paperwork had not even been sent in, and we were covered. OMG. I remember Diane saying that the moment she took our payment we were covered. TRUE. Jim's parting words. Bill, you and Brenda are part of the family and we take care of family.
Brenda is on a 2 day travel restriction. We will be able to leave Friday to head back to Crystal City.
Brenda is feeling better today. Walking around inside the rig a bit. Sleeping a lot, but getting better. She can drive in a week. We are planning to go to Goshen, even if we only go 50 miles a day.
And she is on a 10 day antibiotic regime now.
Oak Grove Rv Park has been super. They told me not to worry, my spot is mine as long as I need it. And have offered to take me anywhere i Need to go. Good customer service. Thanks everyone for your help.
See ya's at the rally.
