This was a dual outing with the San Juanderers and Evergreen Winnies and it turned out to be a wonderful weekend. It was a great opportunity to really get to know members of another chapter. The five San Juanderer rigs and nine Winnie rigs arrived Wednesday.
Wednesday evening everyone met for happy hour and an overview of the weekend by host Tom Rodewald. Thursday was free time to explore the area with several folks driving into Canada to enjoy the upper Okanogan countryside and their beer. Again, everyone met for happy hour and a potluck dinner which was enjoyed by all.
Friday and Saturday were days to enjoy the Stampede Rodeo and the famous suicide race, which was won by the same horse and rider on three nights.
Saturday, the members were treated to brunch by hosts Tom and Cheryl Rodewald and Dennis and Claudine Morasch. Sunday morning the hosts also treated all to a grab-and-go breakfast before departing for home or elsewhere.
