Glad to hear that everyone is having such a great time, as is typical at BamaGanza! Many thanks to Pennie and Chuck for all of their great work in organizing and hosting this year's event, as well as to the many volunteers who make it possible.

Safe travels to everyone, whether you've had to leave early or feel comfortable with staying until tomorrow or beyond. Please be careful on the roads as you move on to your next adventure.

Many thanks to Pennie and Chuck for the "GREAT JOB" they did organizing and orchestrating BAMAGANZA 2017. This was our first FROG Rally and definitely will not be our last! We had a blast meeting so many folks and making what we hope will be longtime friendships. Already looking forward to next years Peach Rally, and maybe even the BIG ONE in Goshen.

Sorry for leaving early today, but I wanted to put the FR3 "to bed" before the heavy rains and wind came into Huntsville. Got back around 5pm and the rain started just before 7pm. Hope everyone gets to their destination safely.

We also had a good time at our first Frog Rally, and are glad we attended. Thank you Penny / Chuck, and ALL who helped to make this a terrific event !

We left early today to get south and around the storm, and are spending the night in Tipton Ga.

Safe travels to to all, and best wishes to those who stayed to ride out the storm at the campground!

Hope to see everyone at the Peach Rally in June !

Bob & Cathy

Have contacted Pennie to let them know we are home and had very little rain or wind on trip back to Cullman, AL. Had a fantastic time at the rally as always. So glad we meet so many wonderful people and pray we see everyone again. Pennie and Chuck did a wonderful job of making everyone welcomed.
Looking forward to many more rallies and many long time friendships. Praying for safe travels for everyone

See ya next year

Plans were to head out about 8 AM this morning but the heavy rains will be in our path down 431 very soon so will head to breakfast then stay at the campground at least until tomorrow.

We pulled out at 5:50 this morning and made our one hour drive to Talladega with just a little rain. Absolute downpour and windy at the house now, 7:46 AM.

Thanks Pennie and Chuck for all your hard work and a great Bama Ganza 2017. See everyone next year and have a safe trip home all.

Randy and Diane A17

Just an F.Y.I. for those of us staying. Latest forecast per Weather Underground for Noccalula Falls shows an improvement with maximum winds of 23 mph out of the SSE at 2 pm with .31 of an inch that hour. Dinner time rain should be .08 at 5PM

Thanks woody Enjoyed your company. We arrive home 9:30 am lots of rain. Only small problem broke the electric jack as tail gate fell down. Other than that all is good.

Thanks Pennie and Chuck for a fine rally. Everyone have safe travels today. Later RJD

If you chose not to travel today you made a good choice.

Downgraded to a depression. Had a 1.5 inch diameter dead limb about 3 feet long fall on the roof. Climbed up to inspect and no damage. The worst is going to be to the East of us now I think.

Be careful if you are traveling today.
