2 YUMA RALLY Thanks to all ten coaches that attended. We missed Chuck and Dorothy and Don and Marion. Don and Dorothy were under the weather. Hope you both are feeling better. As Don was the original host we all just put our heads together and followed Dons agenda. A special thanks to Keith and Lou for hosting our morning get-togethers for coffee and donuts. Everyone seemed to enjoy this time together. During the days members visited the sights around Yuma and relaxed around the park with games of shuffle board of which Keith and Frank won, thanks to Keith. Also a hot game of Mexican Train kept a few busy for a couple of hours. Bob, Mary Ann and Kathie managed to get in 18 holes of golf. Mary Ann came out the winner and Kathie had to fork over $1.25 to Mary Ann. Instead of eating donuts, Marge and Shirley walked around the park for their morning exercise. Maybe some of us should join them. Sure wouldn t hurt me, Saturday Morning after coffee we all packed up and headed home, SEE YOU IN BORREGO SPRINGS SNEAK PEAK FOR JANUARY RALLY Where: Buckskin Mountain State Park Parker Arizona When: January 28, 29, 30 and 31 There will be a bring your own meat Bar B Q Morning coffee gatherings Games with prizes 2 Boats for touring the river, and more Bob and Terry are still working hard to have an interesting and fun Rally Price has yet to be determined and will be published in the December Newsletter with the Itinerary and sign up application We had a great potluck on Wednesday, with a very interesting and fun white elephant gift exchange.
