Day 4 Amado Joint Rally

Amado, Arizona
De Anza RV Resort

Hard to believe this is day four of the joint Escapees Chapter 21 and 45 Rally.  I think it was about 7:40 when we walked over for breakfast.  The place was packed.  Breakfast was great and there were huge portions.  

We were still all talking when we realized that the games began at 9 am.  Today was the playoff's between the chapters. 
We all went to watch and to cheer our teams on.  Lucky for us, we were guaranteed our team would win.  How could we lose?  Bill and I are members of Chapter 21 and Chapter 45. 
These were the playoff teams--Dave Sweetman and David Luchini representing Chapter 21 and Carlena and Harry Schoolcraft representing Chapter 45.  The winners of the ladder balls was the Schoolcraft's.

Joe and Alice Know represented Chapter 45 in the bean bag and Don Dement and Mick Meilicke representing Chapter 21.
The winners of the bean bag were Joe and Alice Knox.

Each winning team received a prize.

When the games were over, John and Karen Knoll took us to the arts festival in Green Valley.  There were some beautiful paintings and jewelry.  Of course there were signs everywhere that no photography was allowed.

By the time we returned, I knew that Don and Sharon Del Rosario were on their way.  
We all went inside when the arrived as it was hot outside.  Gloria and Frank King rode down with them.  It was so good to see them.  It seems like every time we were planning to meet up with them, something interfered. 
How do you like Don Del Rosario with his western hat?  

It wasn't long before it was time for the Chapter 21 business meeting.  Happy Hour followed the meeting.  

It was nice that we had time to visit with Don and Sharon.

Bruce and Bunny Ratcliff always have the loose gathering at Quartzite.  They were presented with a present for hosting the event.

Our last dinner was awesome.  Amy and Bob outdid themselves.  

Everyone is having a great time.

No one walked away hungry.

Following dinner there was another campfire for those that wanted to enjoy one.  It was pretty warm, so we opted to head back to our home.

  1. I nominate you two to be in charge of our next gathering!

  2. The beauty of this rally is that everything is included. All you need is a date. My kind of rally--no cooking.
