I missed a good one.... It looks like everyone had a terrific time! George was kind enough to call me Saturday night after the awards potluck and bring me up to speed on who won what.... Congratulations to the winners and to everyone else that made the trip!!!!

You can bet if I hadn't just started the new job :( I would have been there! (as Shelly and I call it...STUPID WORK!) Brandie and I and even the 'Cherry Drop' pouted the whole weekend!

I'm sure George and his helpers did a super job..... I'm already planning on attending in '11!

Sounds like I too missed a good one. Bad timing this year, as Dennis and Faye pointed out it fell on the same weekend as Back to the 50s. I work that show so was tied up with that.

Oh and Dennis, it was the busiest I have ever seen Back to the 50s. You missed a really good one.

Ah, but ask Dennis about the award he got for his Chevy pickup at a local car show while at Minden...I'm thinking it help eased the pain of missing out on Back to the 50's. :applause:

The food was grand, the weather was pretty OK (has some drizzle which turned to rain later in the evening) and I FINALLY had a camper that wasn't half done for the event.

Thank you George and to all the supporting cast for putting together this event. Hope everyone had as good a time as we did.

If I remember correctly, George said about 56 tears and 104 people.

Cary, Betsey and all the other great teardoppers we met:

Trust me when I say that missing "Back to the 50"s" never even crossed our minds all week-end during the gathering. All the great fellow teardroppers, fantastic dutch-oven cooking, (Faye is already shopping for one) great location, and the local people who came out to see all the little campers was far more great than any lil ole car show.

I've heard attendance figures in excess of 11,700 cars, but I'll bet you they did'nt have as many teardrops as we did.

Oh, and Cary, as for being a ringer, It was just a fun little show and again, we enjoyed talking to the locals and seeing the local talent.

Again, Thanks to George and his crew for a fantastic week-end, it was much more fun than anything else we could have done, and we can't wait for the next gathering. We are definetly planning on attending Camp-Inn's gathering in September at Castle Rock park in Wisconsin in September.

Dennis & Faye :beautiful:
