Great time at Bamaganza, Anne-Marie and Bob did a great job thank you both, was great to see friends from past rallies and meet new frogs. That last campfire with 'FRANK' will be hard to repeat my sides are still aching from all the laughing we did.

Frank? Which Frank? We had Frank, Frank'et, the 2 magic scepters. One metal, the other wood, on fire and not on fire. RJ sitting on the black cooler, not saying what was in the cooler, but, he had to get up and stand much more than he sat. Looking forward to next year. Hopefully Frank will be back, with new stories to tell.

Becca and I are heading out this morning. We want to thank Bob and Ann-Marie and all the volunteers that made BamaGanza16 such a huge success. It was great to meet all the new Frogs and re-unite with the familiar faces.

This is by far the most fun group we have been with!!

We will stop near Dothan, Al. For the night and back home to Florida on Tuesday.

Bill, Becca, Shelly, Walker and Lexie (the 3 shelties)

Thanks To Everyone Who Attended BamaGanza!

Made it back to Huntsville last night and collapsed (actually we both soaked our feet while watching TV... our dogs were barking )

Thanks to EVERYONE who came to BamaGanza and made it the greatest rally ever! It's all the attendees that come to the rally and volunteer, help with registration, food preparation, the Grill Sergeants, breakfast servers and cleanup. Everyone that attended contributed and pitched in, and that is what has made BamaGanza what it is today!

Campfires make camping so special, and thanks to the several folks who donated wood for our evening campfires - WOW I think we had 2 1/2 cord of wood! I know we left a bunch for the campfire last night - and I bet that there is STILL over a cord of wood left that will be enjoyed by other campers in the campground - again thanks so much for your kind donation!

Everyone brought food to the pot-lucks and farewell breakfast. Everyone had fun because everyone contributed and participated.

Folks were telling us all weekend long that BamaGanza was less like a RV rally and more like an annual family reunion! We are very flattered by those comments - thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Finally, we would be remiss if we did not send a huge shout out to our Entertainers:
  • Donald & Rollie for our karaoke entertainment Sunday - Thursday evenings.
  • The Clog Wild Cloggers for their performance Friday afternoon and then leading line dancing in the evening.
  • For the second year, The Heaton Brothers Band brought the house down at the Grill Sergeant BBQ on Saturday night.

Again, thank you to everyone who attended - Anne-Marie and I can't wait to host BamaGanza '17!! (And a little birdie is telling me that CSMRetired - Dennis - THE Grill Sergeant Major, and his lovely Bride Sandy will be co-hosting next year!)

Oh and thanks to FRANK for the impromptu entertainment at Saturday night campfire - our sides still heart from all the laughter!

On a more serious note...

We wanted this to be a separate post from our thank you post.

The generosity of BamaGanza attendees is amazing. We collected over $800 in charitable contributions from the t-shirt sales, silent auction, and people just coming up and donating money.

This past year we have lost 2 of our fellow FROGS: Nancy Miller and Mary Coubrough lost their battle with cancer. In their honor and memory, we will be dividing the contributions equally to their local hospices who provided comfort and care to them in their final weeks. We miss you so much Mary and Nancy.

From all the pictures and the comments it sure looked like everyone had a great time!!!!! Nice to hear a nice amount was raised and going to a great charity in the names of past FROGS. Congrats to Bob & Ann for running such a good rally only bad thing is it is always on the same weekend as another event Beth will not give up and miss so must live thru this thread for pictures and comments

Another great rally, met new crazy FROGS to mix with the old ones. Made the short trip back home without any problems. Looking forward to next year. How many other RV manufacturers offer this much fun? Good reason to stick with Forest River.
