We are back home. We really had a great time! We met lots of good folks from all over. Our thanks to Bob, Anne-Marie, Dennis, and Sandy for hosting a great rally, they did a terrific job! I can't remember the last time I played Putt-Putt... We had a blast... And the FOOD.. wow, we ate like royalty.
Go GIANTS !

Bamaganza '15 could 'not' have gone better. We had great attendance, there were a total of 62 FROG rigs here with a total of 123 FROGS!

On behalf of Bob, Anne-Marie, Sandy and myself (The auctioneer)
We thank all of y'all so very much for making Bamaganza '15 a very successful rally.

Without y'all there would be no rally.

Be safe in your travels home or on to your next adventure, for all of you that have made it home already, thanks for coming.....we all look forward to having a great Bamaganza '16!

There are a bunch of folks I would like to thank for jumping in and helping, unfortunately I don't have names....but I can say there were several folks that helped with the food prep most of the afternoon Saturday as well as on the grills Saturday afternoon. There were folks just jumping in and helping all over, that's one of the many reasons these RV rallies are so successful, especially the FROG RV rallies.
I was speaking to a young lady this morning, a veteran in fact, she told me that what she missed most about the military was the close knit family type atmosphere. ...she told me she felt that this weekend (that's a feel good moment )

When folks like FROGS get together, there is always a family atmosphere, that makes co-hosting an event like this far more a pleasure than a task.

I want to chime in here with CSMRetired as well. Anne-Marie, Sandy, Dennis and myself were absolutely BLOWN AWAY by all the offers to help with food preparation,activity organization, and cleanup.

BamaGanza has quickly established a tradition - as Dennis so eloquently said - of a close knit family atmosphere where lifelong friendships are made and people are so excited about the rally that the number one question Saturday night was what are the dates of BamaGanza '16?!

We also found out another interesting thing that makes BamaGanza unique and so special. I asked everyone Saturday if they would like to have the meal at BamaGanza '16 catered and every single person said NO! Apparently there is something very special about a bunch of people getting together to prepare a meal--so this will be a unique tradition that we will not change in future BamaGanza's!

To everyone who attended: Anne-Marie, Sandy, Dennis and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making BamaGanza what it has become, We are all looking forward to BamaGanza '16!

We posted the band in action Saturday night I believe.

Anyhow, now that I am home and on a high speed internet connection I will be uploading all the photos I took at the rally

It may be tomorrow though....that shower and a ice cold cider is looking really tempting right now

BTW, when we woke up today (0700) it was 39Ί at the campground

I think that is what we used to call "Phase One Recovery Operations."
