This is our third annual event, and it appears it will have the largest gathering of coaches so far.

We are going to have a real Texas Style BBQ with all the trimmings on Friday night, a super duper breakfast by Ronnie who cooked the BBQ the night before, a Chili feed by BigJohn and Blu on Saturday night and did I say great food!

If you are in the area of Eisenhower State Park in Denison TX, stop by the Cedar Hollow Area and you'll see a few Flx's, a Scenic Cruiser, a few GM's, some MCI's, a Wanderloge and of course the Eagles! Around 24 in all, with maybe a few late comers. We will also have some wannabees floating around drooling at all the pretties.

The weather forecast is great! Highs in the upper 60's to lower 70's, nights in the upper 40's to lower 50's, and no rain in site! (sorry Christy)  Wink Good night temps for the Fireside Chat!

Sonnie Gray is going to go through what he did to install the Cat in his Eagle, a marvelous feat of engineering. Otherwise, we'll just kick back, jack our jaws and have some fun!

This rally is dedicated to the memory of Patti Gray, Sonnie's wife who passed away late last year. God Bless you Sonnie!

So round em up, gather your duds and head out for a really good time y'all.

Happy Trails,

Paul

Hey Dallas,

Sure was looking forward to meeting you and Cat! I understand your situation, maybe next year!

Did you end up with that Eagle?

Rats, Dallas. Too bad you missed that Iggle, that would have been a great upgrade.

Paul, hope you guys have fun! Eat some extra chili for me, please.

God bless,

John

Dallas,

There are lots of Eagles on the market, just have to find the right one for you guys. I've got an idea, I'll PM you.

John,

We'll do, I'm sure glad this is outdoors! Roll Eyes The musical fruit might take over!

For those interested I will hold a short seminar on posting pictures on this board and Eagles International. I figure I'll do it Saturday morning around 10 am.

Bring your laptop and camera, it will make it much easier if you work through as I demonstrate.

It really is very simple, you just have to go through the motions and you'll be a whiz! Wink

We already have a couple of busnuts in the area of Sherman and Denison waiting for the festivities to begin.

For those of you who have not yet paid for the arrival BBQ or the meals by Ronnie, I will gladly take your monies! You must wear your nametag during meal times so we know you have paid for the meals. Name tags will be issued Thursday after we arrive and setup, most likely around noon or shortly thereafter.

I will have some copies of the Bus Conversion Magzine that the gang in charge sent me. (Thanks Guys) Along with that you will be able to sign up to receive the monthly issues. See me for more information if you are interested.

Schedule is as follows: (We might slightly change the meal times, we'll let you know.)

Bring your preferred beverages to each meal

Thursday - Arrival BBQ with hamburgers and hotdogs - 6 pm

                TBR Welcome and Greetings after BBQ

Friday -     Donuts every morning at 7 am, except Saturday, bring your own coffee as we don't have a large traveling coffee maker.

                Sonnie Gray holding a Show and Tell on his CAT re-power - 10 am

                Texas Style BBQ by Ronnie - 6 pm

Saturday - Breakfast by Ronnie - 8 am

               Picture Posting Seminar - 10 am

Saturday - Chili Feed by Big John and Blu - 6 pm
               
Sunday - Break Camp and head home or where ever your destination is. Sad

See Ya there,

Paul
