This morning I was on the road again by 11:00. It is only 65 miles from Cedar Breaks Park to Hi-Line Lake Resort at Tow. The attendance this time is lower than I've ever seen it. Since we had fewer than ten rigs (the smallest group we have had), we were not allowed to use the club room (unless we paid $75 per day). We sat outside Jo's big motorhome for a while but decided to eat inside because the wind had gotten a little strong. After dinner some of us played a game of Mexican train while the others chatted. Soon it started thundering and lightning so we headed to our separate rigs. About an hour later we had some heavy rain and light hail, but the storm passed quickly and there was no damage.
After some arm-twisting this morning by President Janie Cummings and Wagon Master Ed Lohn, the owner agreed to let us use the club room free of charge after all! Since the wildflowers were sparse this season, we did not take a ride into the country as we had planned. Instead, we played table games until time for the business meeting at 3:30. At the meeting I served as secretary in the absence of Marilyn Childers. Dinner tonight was at the Junction House in Kingsland. The food was very good and the service extraordinary. At least five staff members checked on us frequently.
This morning Steamboat Fulton arrived with donuts for everyone. He was able to stay for only a short visit. Later some of us went for a walk to work off some of those donut calories. Tonight we added back those calories with leftovers from our Thursday night potluck dinner. After dinner we played table games. Then we cleaned up the club room so it would be ready for the church which conducts worship services here each Sunday morning.
