Steve & Phyllis Thornburg (22044)
Indiana State Directors
We held our Indiana State Rally in September at Potato Creek State Park. Twenty-five people attended, including twenty-one Hoosier Kountry Klub members, two NKK members visiting the area from Florida and two guests. We had six one-night visitors including Linda and DeAnn from the NKK office and Ron & Wanda Llewellyn who were working in the NKK office during the week.
We had a breakfast buffet at the Dutch Maid Eatery in Rentown (small Amish town and restaurant) and a great dinner at Memos House of Pancakes in Walkerton, Indiana (Friday night AYCE fish special was awesome).
We had a pizza dinner followed by a group sing-along led by the Kraft Family Singers from North Liberty, Indiana. We thank the Hoosier Kountry Klub for sponsoring the pizza dinner.
Friday morning, Phyllis held a rock painting class and found a lot of artistic talent in the group of participants. Some of the fun things that “appeared” from the rocks were a cupcake, a rather large piece of candy corn and following the candy theme, a green M&M (with a bite missing).
With our rally being at Potato Creek, Phyllis conjured up some fun with a “Build a Mr. /Mrs. Potato Head Contest” with teams competing to create the most original Potato Head character. That was followed by an “S3” (can we tell there’s a math teacher involved here somewhere?) dinner – Soups, Salads and Sundaes in the park’s Peppermint Hill shelter. After dinner, we celebrated the Hoosier Kountry Klub’s 35th Anniversary of its charter with ice cream and cake.
We have booked spaces for the 2022 Indiana State Rally at the Hogback Lake KOA at Angola, Indiana, for the dates of June 22 arrival and June 26 departure. When you see this, our reservation block will have expired on October 31. Although we will not have guaranteed spaces by this time, it is a big campground and, if you wish to attend the rally, you should contact the campground to see if they have any spaces available.
Just a couple of quick thoughts (not mine but they’re still good): As I watch this new generation try to rewrite our history, one thing I’m sure of….it will be misspelled and have no punctuation.
And, why do we love our motorhomes – a cold seat in a public restroom is unpleasant; a warm seat in a public restroom is worse…..
