JULY 17TH MORRIS ILLINOIS GATHERING

******PARTY CANCELLATION NOTICE**********

SORRY, GUYS. PARTY'S BEEN CANCELED. We just don't have enough people to make it worth the amount of planning. Sorry about that. Maybe next year.













Hi everybody! SaGR's wife here. We're planning another party weekend this year at my family's place in Morris---ten acres on a lovely waterway. There's swimming and games and Rick's mouthwatering slow-cooked barbecue that he always does at these gatherings. It's dry camping but with access to water and other comforts. We can only take a limited number of teardrops, so if you want to come, just message me here on the forums to let me know.

People can come on Friday if they want and stay until Sunday. The party itself is going to be potluck as most teardrop gatherings seem to be, and we'll try to have a nice big breakfast on Sunday. You'll want to bring a swimsuit for going in the lake!

The town of Morris is truly lovely, with a beautiful downtown area right on the I&M Canal, a racetrack with races on Friday and Saturday nights, and Cruise Nights during the summer, where they display hundreds of antique cars, though I don't know if they have it planned for that particular weekend.

Let me know ASAP as space is limited. Message me with any questions!

Thanks!

Eeenteresting -- very eenteresting!! I'll put this on my calendar!

Yeah, I sold my teardrop (ps new owner -- gonna come to this?) but I have a 4x4' gear hauler and sleeping space in my MINI Cooper Clubman. So this is a definitely interesting proposition!

Yes, I was so sad last year because we had a dropout due to sickness and then Mr. & Mrs. Pigcooker were only able to stay for the day so it wasn't as much of a gathering as I had hoped! That's why this time I'm giving lots of notice so as to hopefully draw in some more campers.

Great pictures, Bob Henry! Glad you had such a good time, and we loved your barn-drop!

Anybody who's interested in attending just make sure you private message me on the forums!

Sorry, guys. Party's going to have to be cancelled. I couldn't get enough people to come, so maybe next year. Sorry.
