We had a great campfar tonight, and a card game going on under the big top. The clouds roled in around 4 and started to cool us down and the evening air with the cool breeze and the scent of the fire was great I got some pictures and will post them later. Its after 10 and we have Breakfast at 7 in the morning followed by the trip on the train.

Sorry; we are back from the train ride where we were robbed, and Sandy was robbed repeatedly. Everyone had a great time, while we were up there a storm roared in and made us all dash for cover to get away from the rim during a lightning strike. When we got back we had a gun fight right here in the park from the train robbers. so we all enjoyed that and they stuck around telling us about the history of the old west. Then we watched a great DVD, Terry Fador from Vegas hes a ventriloquist like Jeff Dunham but he sings. Every one there laughed and enjoyed the show.

Today was a easy day with our Pot Luck Breakfast, followed by a tour of Bearizona a drive through wild animal park here in Williams. We are having our Ice cream social tonight.

Well its almost dinner time then ice cream so thats it for now.

Nice pictures, looks like y'all are having a great time. I bet the ice cream social will be cool too.

Was that a pun?

Well the raffle was great, I think everyone recieved something the pot luck was over welming the best food you ever wanted to find. As the sun rises on our last day togeather its another easy day, yard sale at 9:00 and then free time untill dinner at 6:00 the Mayor will be here along with our chosen Charity. We will have a small presentation for the TX hold en Tourny and a few surprises. So we will have some laughs and I am sure a few tears for tomarrow. I will start posting pictures later, as I am still doing lots of things.

If your here and reading this dont forget the schedule.

I want to add to Jim's post that yesterday morning after a great potluck breakfast and thanks to the wonderful owners of Railside RV Park, we were able to take all the young folks to a swim party at the large hotel pool here in Williams. They had a blast and didn't even drown each other. Afterwards Jim & Cheri had hotdogs & hamburgers for them. Tamara, the park owner took us all over in the park van and picked us up. The owners of the park have absolutely been wonderful to help us in our every need.

For all of you that opted out of the National because of the heat in Arizona in July:

It was 55 at 4 PM this afternoon and has probably been one of the coolest (in more ways than one)
National Rallies on record.

We have really enjoyed the outdoor AC ! along with some refreshing much needed rain showers for the area.

Well tonight was our last hoopla, we had rain showers up until 5:30 at times real intense, the dried up creek out front had water running and there were flood warnings for Williams for the first time in years. But as it has been all week mother nature was on our side the rain stopped and we had our dinner. I introduced the Mayor John Moore who thanked us for picking Williams a town that has been effected by the hard times across America, I also introduced Susan Tamulevich the Director of the Inspirations Organization who we chose to make our donation from the Rally. Again I want to thank each and everyone who attended for their participation., Tammera and Pat Dora ( owners of Railside RV Ranch) and their great staff, and the town of Williams. with the help of everyone we made a great donation which will help the youth of Williams to pick themselves up and see the light.

Its hard to believe the week is over, so all that attended please be sure to send Sandy your pictures and she will get us all a 2010 DVD of all the fun moments to remember the week with.

Cheri and I had a great time and hope you all did too.
Again Thank you all and let us know when you get home, have a safe trip and we can't wait to do it again and if your ever back in Arizona stop in and say hi to Tammera and Pat if your on 40 or if your coming thru Phoenix let Cheri and I know we would love to see you again.

Y'all have safe trips home or to your next destinations and I'm delighted you had a great rally at Williams this year. Hope to see all of you at the 2011 National Rally to be held at a location yet to be determined.
