Your math is a little off. At the fairgrounds having 30 amp electric and water hookup itís $23 dollars a night, for six nights of camping that is $138.00. For full hookups with 50 amp service it is $30 a night, thatís $180 for six nights of camping.

Regardless of the rally fee, the food wasn't good.

Quirky Collection

Friday Joyce and I went on the optional Quirky Collection Tour. Our first stop was at the Elcar Pedal Power Museum. It is a private collection of approximately 400 pedal cars. Boy, this outstanding collection really brought back long forgotten memories to me. Here are just a few pics of the many cars on display.

This was my favorite, a vintage pedal car pulling a vintage style travel trailer. I wanted to move the little boat out of the way for the picture but I wasnít about to touch anything.



More pedal cars.




You can't have a pedal car collection without having a collectable car wash kit.


Along with the small cars the collection also included some antique autos too.

More Quirky Collection

Our lunch break on the Quirky Collection Tour was at Heinnies restaurant in Elkhart. Afterwards we went to another private collection of military vehicles and memorabilia. I think this was of more interest to the men rather than the women on the tour.

I was surprised to see this collection included a Korean War era helicopter, a Bell H-13 (I think.)


He had quite a collection of military vehicles.


Interesting little motorcycle.


Along with military vehicles he had other collectable vehicles including this Tuk Tuk from Thailand.


The most interesting vehicle for me was this Messerschmitt three wheeler.


It must be nice to have money.

Sounds like a personnel problem. Few folks complained. I was there last year all was well. As I said before you can please some of the people some of the time and not all the the people all the time. You get a lot for the price you pay for the rally. Frog Bob does one heck of a job to make this happen. You try and feed 2000 folks and see what you get for a response on your caterer. Later RJD

I spoke with Cindy at breakfast Saturday morning. Couple was checked out by EMTs Friday night and they are okay. The EMTs told the lady she would be sore a few days, but nothing seemed to be broken. The dog seemed to be fine when I saw them on the golf cart with Frog Bob & Cindy heading to their RV Friday night.

There was 1 PPST left and 2 associate members on Friday.. Some of us know the associates can not be trusted!!:rollback:

I don't think Sye (PPST) would steal his own plate....

Looks like a detective job for someone...
