There were approximately seventy coaches that attended. It was especially nice to have seven youngsters attend and enjoy the campfire activities with their parents or grandparents!
A special THANKS to Penny and Max Nuttall for being our co-hosts. Thanks also for the help many of you all gave us with meal preparation, serving and cleanup. Next year we will have more organized helper sign up sheets. We think that the social hours and the six or seven planned and impromptu meals that were served as well as the campfires went quite well.
There were five seminars held as follows: 1/ Electrical management and tire safety; 2/ RV Fire safety; 3/ RV maintenance and remodeling; 4/ Genealogy Basics and 5/ Basics of Dry Camping.
We have Co-Hosts for next year already. Peggy and Ed Owens have volunteered for this important position. We are already thinking of how we can improve the Gathering for next year. We encourage your suggestions for improvement and suggestions for good, easily prepared and cleanup meals we could try next year. Preparing and serving over one-hundred people in that desert dry camping environment is a real challenge!
