Not sure if we can make it yet but there is a ballon festival that weekend. We went one year. It is worth the dawn trip to see the balloons taking off. The night festivities aren't worth the heavy traffic backup. It's at Floyd Bennett airfield. If you never saw a bunch of balloons firing up and taking off near dawn it's a site to see.

We're in the home stretch now!  53 hearty souls registered.  A nice number!  Dropped off the rally packets for copying, I'm getting lazy in my old age!  If the weather continues as it has make sure you have your electrics ready to go.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  I should be getting to Scott's house by about 5 pm Wednesday so we'll probably be stopping by Motel Montreal about 7ish to say hi to all our early folks.  Expect a ride for Thursday morning with a 2pmish return so we can head back to the ranch and get our gear for check-in.  See you soon!

Jr and his new GF just registered the other day. They grow up so fast.. Sniff Sniff.

Checking the next 10 day weather for the hell of it in Lake George and it doesn't look bad. 70 ish day and 50 ish nights. I call that perfect weather for gear.

Kevin don't put the whammy on us! :-\ ;)

Now we must appease the weather gods with sacrifices of ocelots, emus and platypuses (platypi?!?)   :))

OK I'm in.
Trying to book a room now...."no one available to take your call" .....huh?  :o

This is a REAL rally & not a Sears rally, right?  :nananana:

OK the hotel actually called me back without leaving a message, now that's service!
FYI, a single room is $55.50/night.

This better be good Terry (I know Scotties half will be)!  >:D

Actually, I ended up sending them an email and they wrote and called me back the same day. I managed to book my room yesterday.

Out of curiosity, anybody interested in burning some fossil fuel on those hotel BBQ grills and charcoal some meat?

We've been there a few times already and somehow never made an offering to the meat gods.

Just a thought (plus, it pisses off vegans). Any takers?

Just when you think you've got things wrapped up with a neat little bow fate let's you know you're not the boss!  LOL

Seems there has been a change in management in our banquet venue and the new folks seem unaware that we had arrangements! :-\

I'll keep you posted as this develops.  Don't be surprised if we end up somewhere back in town.   ;)

Okay we're back on track!  Scott rewrangled our banquet with one slight change, dessert isn't included.  I personally won't miss it myself.  So get those bags packed and let's get this party started! :motonoises: :great: :beerchug:

The Saturday banquet is at the Wild West Ranch.  We should have a shuttle from the Motel Montreal.

Is it the same place as originally planned?

Yes we got it taken care of and rather than gamble last minute on another venue went with the original location.
