Sedalia Ranks As One of the Best!
This was, in my opinion, one of the best rallies yet! Those who chickened out because they THOUGHT it was going to be too hot....well, you were wrong! As Paul Glaves said in this thread, the hottest were Lima, Bloomsburg, and Spokane.
Everything about the rally was well-organized, the facilities and layout of everything were terrific, even the food in the variety of restaurants on-site was significantly better than what's been offered at previous rallies (Gillette and Burlington were, IMO, the worst) and not expensive. I gave the Amish folks who were running the little produce-stand ample business, as their peaches were superb!
Yes, it got hot in Sedalia by late afternoon but, as has been amply pointed out by others who did attend, there was always a good breeze, there was plenty of a/c, plenty of nice shade, plenty of places to sit under a canopy of trees, and a nice breeze blowing through the beer tent in the afternoons/early evenings.
I didn't camp, but the campers can't complain about the overnight temps. Thursday morning we had a brief, gentle rain which really kept things nice and cool all morning. Friday morning the temps were in the low 70's. Saturday morning it was 68 degrees!! How do I know this? I know this because I checked the weather each morning before leaving my hotel room and walking the two miles to the rally grounds. By dusk, temps cooled off sufficiently to make my walk back to the hotel tolerable.
