4th of July at the resort

July 7, 2008

The weather was perfect and the park was full of kids having fun.  The 4th of July celebration was the kind of event that will be remembered by everyone who was there enjoying the activities, fireworks and fun.  It was an event the kids will remember when they are adults, as most of us adults remember the 4th when we were kids.

The first event of the day was water volleyball.  There was a record number of eager participants that joined in the fun.

The next event of the day was an organized horseshoe tournament with 1st place awarded to Norm Beler and his grandson.  The competition was tough and I personally experienced the agony of defeat in the first round.

Later in the afternoon everyone joined in organized events that included three-legged racing, water ballon tossing and several other events.  It was so much fun seeing everyone join in.

The evening ended with a fireworks display provided by member Ron Johnson.  The fireworks were so good and lasted so long that long lines of cars were stopped on the highway to get a view.  It was truly spectacular and Ron, along with his family, did an unbelievable job entertaining everyone by putting on a show that was absolutely perfect.  Ron paid for the display out of his own pocket, but many members insisted on donating some money to offset the expense.  Hopefully this will become a tradition at the park.

As the weekend came to an end, Frankie our camp host, told me that we had very few problems and everyone seemed to have enjoyed the weekend.  The park was very full, but it made for a great turnout with lots of members enjoying a perfect day.

The park has 36 occupied campsites (of 36) and there are no overflow sites available.  The park is completely full and no campsites are available.  If you come to the park, we will find a non-hookup spot for you (members only).  You will not be turned away from your park!
