    Hey, Jay!

    Still wear my Flood City Concours Rally T-shirts.
    Sounds like a tempting offer you have here, I may just point the R this way and join you.
    Cheers,
    Tony

    I'm tempted to come just for the dump stew because I have a can of alligator that's been in my pantry for some time. Seriously.

    Great Eats

    If you're coming into our rally from the west and you're hungry you'll want to keep your eye open for this restaurant just east of Donegal. It's about 8 miles from our campout site.


    http://www.outofthefirecafe.com/

    It's a just a wonderful stop! One of the most unique eateries in the area.

    I highly recommend a stop. The steamed mussels are out of this world!

    The smoked Salmon is also wonderful!

    We where out riding a bit yesterday in southern Somerset County enjoying some of the many wonderful little back roads.

    We stopped at Mt. Davis, the highest point in PA.

    Also stopped at Whipering Pines for the girls to do a little shopping

    Our campout is only a month and a half away. Please send in your registration forms so we can plan accordingly.

    thanks,

    Our campout is only 2 weeks away.

    Who's coming?

    It's our 10 anniversary and we're looking for a record crowd!

    Lots of Door prize have been arriving and we'll have a cool 10 year tee shirt for sale.

    Hope to see you.
