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
