OK sports fans, now that it is perfectly clear on the insurance front, I'll file a claim with FMCA to buy BK a new lawn lounge.  For those of you not aware, I backed over BK's favorite yard chair with my Suzuki toad at his last year's super rally. 

BK - I'll be arriving late afternoon on Tuesday as per notification by Uncle Ned of this year's Rally.  He's going to lead the caravan on to Blytheville the following day.  There is an off-chance that Hard Headed Ken could be a participant in the big road event, now that he has a WHOLE new set of Michelins.
Ned - As I understand the Rally insurance, FMCA will NOT cover the waffles on Tuesday morning but hell, at our age we need to live large!

What no waffles or tri tips or spaghetti
we will starve  or live off of stred fat.  hope to see you tuesday the 2nd.
uncle ned

No, No, Ned - you misunderstood - there WILL be waffles.  It is just that they won't be insured by FMCA - you eat at your own risk!
By the way, is BK going to be at his Rally?

Do you think we should nvitr BK to his own 1 day rally.
will give him a call

(PH and thak you Tom Hamrick for letting me know I was having a rally and to send your "new to you" DDECII ECM with Ned!

LOL! Wow I really don't get on the boards as much these days do I?

As a matter or fact, Yes!

Frankie and I joined the Eagles in 1996.
At the 1997 Annual meeting in Quartzite, we were introduced.
During the introductions a remark was made that maybe we could host a rally in Alaska.
We said sure, that we could. Since we were full timers we would need some lead time.
That winter we were in Florida and received the Eagle News Letter.
As I was reading it, I said to Frankie, "Look, they're having a rally in Alaska."
I read a little farther and said, "And we're hosting it".

It really created no problems and the rally went off without a hitch.
I think those that attended would agree it was a great experience.
Some of them stayed the entire summer in Alaska.

It might not be the same with others and I recommend that the hosts be involved before they are appointed!
