Winnehahas met Aug. 9-11 at the Alexandria Shooting and RV Park in Alexandria. This is a beautiful facility with 150 sites with plenty of power and water and a dump station on-site. It was quickly determined that the Winnehahas as well as the Sundowners would reserve this place for future club outings. By Friday evening there were seventeen rigs on the grounds, though some had arrived as early as Wednesday.
Friday was an unusually cool day with a stiff, chilly wind. It was a challenge to sit outside and socialize, but nearly everyone joined the happy hour. After dinner at a restaurant, there was a campfire, but most people huddled in their campers while a few played games in the building.
Hosts Dave and Barb Grunzke and Jerry and Char Otteson served two nice breakfasts and cooks brought out their finest for Saturday's potluck dinner. A round of card bingo brought a lot of laughs and made a few people's purses a little heavier. More games and another campfire followed.
Saturday was a beautiful day, but Sunday was perfect. It's always perfect the day we go home.
