10 NIUcouples attend the rally.  Schwarzs brought their newly acquired Airstream Skydeck.  This is not your grandmother’s Airstream. We held our happy hours atop the Skydeck overlooking the Mississippi River.   The weather was clear, but a little warm.  Four couples came early, to lengthen their enjoyment at this riverfront campground with fishing and boating.  More pictures on the NIU facebook page.  click here.

July 17 – 19 – Starved Rock St. Pk.

Saturday, July 4th, 2015



The Wendorfs hosted the rally.  Six couples came for the weekend.  Three more couples drove in for the Saturday activities.  Friday’s hour was followed by a group dinner and campfire.  Some went to the Lodge to enjoy “Music on the Veranda”.  Saturday morning: Rick and Jill served French toast, sausage, and orange juice.   During the day, we toured the museum in Utica and the Visitor Center at the lock. After Saturday’s happy hour, we had dinner at the Starved Rock Lodge.  It was too hot that evening, so we did not stick around for the music.  We got some rain during the weekend, but that did not dampen our enjoyment.  Sunday morning: the group toured the Starved Rock visitor center to learn of the legend of Starved Rock.
