John,

We'd love to go but have to be in Dallas by the 16th and usually like a few days of buffer in case we have issues.

The dates for this event are cutting it close for us but it may still happen.

I am jonesing for a good bus rally.

John,
Usbusin posted the link.  Can't find anyone who is going.  If they are going they don't post on BNO or BCM, i guess.  We may be the only one there.  When I was a kid I always wanted to go to the Walking Horse show there.  When you gonna be in the states?

I just tested and my link works too, but it goes to a completely different website for the same rally.  I think the link you posted is the up to date website.  No idea why there are two websites for the same rally.

Hey Guys,

Sorry for the confusing links.  The proper one is www.thegreatamericanbusrally.com.  You'll find all the information and a sign up sheet. 

Clifford's attendance estimate seems to be about right and it is shaping up to be a great rally.

Check out the web site real close.  For instance, we're closing out on Saturday night with a sit down dinner, white table cloths, real silverware, real glass plates and glasses, waitresses, live chefs, options for your main course, a home made dessert that will leave you speechless, an after dinner speaker/comedian, a live band and dancing 'til.

All the days leading up to Saturday night are as equally filled with fun activities - seeing old friends, making new friends and, laughter - how could you even think of missing this event?

I am hoping to arrive on Wednesday Gary. I talked to Jefferson today. When he left Branson in October we all thought that would be his last rally. He has had a real tough time of it this winter, and had not been to the shop in months. He was as spry as ever today and said he feels better than he has in a while. He even talked fishing, and went to the shop. He is hoping to make the rally!!! I told him all he had to do was get there and we would take care of the rest. If you don't mind could you keep a spot open that is close to everything. He is stubborn and would never request this but we just won't tell him!!!LOL

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the heads up on Jefferson.  We'll put him where he wants to be and do what needs to be done to assure he has a great time.

Just so you'll know, there is a large flight of Eagles arriving on Tuesday.

Gary

P.S.  Your sponsorship is appreciated.

Hi Linda,

The facility is the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration Grounds.  Turn appropriately at the traffic light as per directions on our web site www.thegreatamericanbusrally.

The rally lot is really at the "big blue water tank" .  It is a very tall structure and easily seen.  It is new and, very attractive I might add. 

Needless to say, water pressure is excellent in the rally lot!
