Bring your Green Thumbs to the Spring Campout May 5-8

Great News! We just confirmed one of our activities for the Spring Campout at Art Idso’s place in Absaraka the weekend of May 5 – 8. We will be treated to a private tour the 35-acre Dale E. Herman Research Arboretum just outside Absaraka! Dr. Todd West, NDSU Horticulture Undergraduate Program Coordinator and Associate Professor of Woody Plant Improvement confirmed our tour. We will learn more about woody landscape plants they are trialing in our climate conditions, plant diseases and small fruit research. This will be a great opportunity to pull off the winter mittens and get some much needed sunshine on those pale green thumbs! The tour is scheduled for Friday at 1:30 PM (weather permitting), with an alternate morning time frame, too. It’s early spring – just in case, bring your waterproof shoes or boots.  See you there!

Folklorama 2009! Region 7 Rally site chosen

Alrighty then!  Region 7 President Don Rogers announced today that the 2009 Region 7 Rally will be held in Winnipeg August 4 – 9th, in conjunction with the city’s Folklorama Folk Arts Festival.  We had a great time there in 2004 and this one will be even better.  We will be staying at the Travelers’ RV Resort on the city’s southeast corner, with full hookups.  It is also expected that there will be two evenings with motorcoach service to the various pavilions, as well as daytime activities to keep us busy.  Start saving your morning coffee money now, because this rally is worth every penny!  As was the case last time, a number of people chose to stay on for the second week of the festival, and this will also be available.  More details will be forthcoming in the winter months.

Greetings from Thunder Bay!

The Region 7 Rally is near over already and I’ve finally gotten onto the web, thanks to someone else’s computer.  Well, that’s not entirely true, because we have been so busy and having a great time, tracking down WiFi and sitting at a computer seems like a lessor priority.

Mission accomplished at the Panorama Amethyst Mine.  I got my “Purple, Sparkly, and Big”.   And made a surprising contribution to the local economy with the GST and PST taxes.  The weather has been absolutely beautiful.  There are 40 units here, from Manitoba, Ontario, North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Texas, Florida, and Washington state.  Today, we drove out to Kakabeka Falls for a leisurely walk around the falls.  Yesterday, we caravaned to Fort William Historic Site., and went to an open air concert down at the the Harbor front.  The Symphony was playing Big Band when we arrived, following with a Pipes & Drums Corp, with Tanglefoot entertaining third and closing the evening.  Tonight, there is a dinner at the Polish Legion and it is rumored we will be eating very well.  Wisconsin unit is getting geared up for their hosting of next year’s International Rally in Madison.  More details to follow.  CR
