Vall & Mo,

It will be great to see both of you again! Really glad you could join us again.

Howdy folks,

At the last moment, we were able to snatch some vacation time here in Brazil for the holidays... and we're going! :-)

Expect us to arrive on the 29th, we have just reserved campsite A-37, and will be departing on the 1st after the hike.

Really looking forward to meeting all of you!

Cheers,

Once again the business wins out. Due to manpower constraints in the business Susan cannot get away from her duties as President/CFO. We are going to have to cancel our plans to celebrate the New Year at Catalina State Park >:( :'(  .

It is very sad to have to cancel reservation after reservation because of the business, but the good news is that one of our favorite former employees came into the office looking for work, so Susan is going to interview her on Tuesday. If everything works out Susan will once again have the assistance in the office she desperately needs.

I am going to make reservations for next year...I have to keep hoping that Susan will be able to take more time off in the near future.

John,

Sorry to hear that you have to cancel, but I certainly understand. Been there done that - several times in the past.

Hope to see you at the Texas rally.

I am truly disappointed, I made the reservations in January 2014, it was one of the trips I planned that I had really counted on. After my sons were raised and moved out, I've wanted to get out and do New Years camping. I've made reservations for next year at Catalina, I'm hopeful.

We had our first Happy Hour, but it had to be in our coach. Ray&Liza, Chet&Laurie, Randy&Debbie.
Tomorrow it will have to outside- not enough room inside with all the arrivals.

Happy Hour tomorrow, space B33, at 3PM

Made it to Wickenburg.  Beautiful weather but on the chilly side.  Didn't hook up the water line because it's expected to be 32 degrees tonight.

Jeff,

Right now Chicago is 20 degs warmer than Oro Valley - of course there is a time difference. Today's high here is supposed to be 54, Chicago 51.

Woke up with 44 degrees in the coach, don't even want to check the temp outside. Maybe I can get Margaret to disconnect the sewer hose.

Sunday Dec 28th

Happy Hour at 3PM

Then we are going out to dinner - restaurant TBD

At 7PM some of us are going bowling at the Fiesta Lanes, 501 W River Rd.
    $7.00 cover charge for admission. With admission the bowling and shoe rental are free, but even if you just want to watch it will cost $7.00. Sheila says the $7.00 admission will be worth the price of the entertainment

Other information:

With the weather forecast we have decided that the quasi potluck will be on Tuesday Dec 30. Like last year we will order fried chicken from Fry's. Everyone will bring a side or dessert.

Some folks will be going to the movies on some days (particularly the raining days predicted)

Theaters:
Century Theatres at Oro Valley Marketplace (across the road from the CG). Schedule here

AMC Loews Foothills 15  (Ina Rd and Cholla Blvd). Schedule here

I heard talk to day of some who wanted to go to the Pima Air Musuem and the Boneyard tour. Note the following from their website: No
   No"Boneyard"/AMARG tours on Fri., Dec. 26, 2014 due to an Executive Order for a federal holiday on that day. We've added extra tours the following week (Mon., Tue., Wed. and Fri.). NOTE: Thu., Jan. 1 is a federal holiday so no "Boneyard"/AMARG tours but the Pima Air & Space Museum is open.
http://www.pimaair.org/

Other possible Activities:
Biosphere 2. See info here
Arizona-Sonoran Desert Musuem. see info here
Titan Missile Museum. see info here
Tubac, AZ. see info here
The Art Museum at the University of AZ. See info here
Drive Up Mount Lemmon, but be careful the road was closed overnight a day ago because of ice. It is now open but may have restrictions
Sabino Canyon. Info here

Remember this is your rally. Pick and choose what interests you.

If you are going to something that others might enjoy, please post it here. It's always more fun to go with friends - even new friends!

An RVForum Rally First!  At least my first time ever bowling with a group of seniors.  Yep for  only  $7 per person we had more fun than you can shake a stick at.  I think a few of us will have some sore  body parts tomorrow but tonight we had a few laughs, cheers and wahoooooo's.   Terry  had a high score  of 149 and Ken had a game of  159.  I bowled a few gutter balls but I did not fall in the alley as I did witness but got no shot! 

So here are some shots and we did not get home until well after 9 pm... this old group just keeps getting better!

Betty,

You forgot to tell them that in the first game I started with 4 gutter balls in the first 3 frames and ended with an 82! After all these years it took awhile to find a way I could bowl with a body that isn't still 20. Terry won 2 out of 3 and had the high average of our group. Maybe other will post their results.

But really the scores are unimportant, it was just a great way to have some fun and I think almost everyone had a good time! Some of us will have some minor pains today (my thumb is very sore). But still it was a blast - especially watching others (or others watching me clean the gutters).

I think this was a forum first and may be added to our News Years rallies in the future.
