District 3 Rally Recap
May 15-17, 2015
Elkhorn Campground
Frankfort, KY

The 35th District 3 Rally was well attended with 28 units. Sixteen were first-timers! Games had to be played indoors, however, because heaven provided a great deal of moisture on Saturday.

Friday night began with a Hot Dog Roast, hosted by Terry & Marty Hart, District 3 Reps from Michigan.

Following the roast, Bob & Darlene Workinger, District 3 Representatives, hosted a series of “Anything Goes” games. These games, with 4 team members, are designed for folks to get acquainted with each other, and it worked! The 1st Place team was \\\"Late Friday\\\'s\\\", consisting of Sam & Charlene Williams and George & Linda Attard.

Saturday morning, the Kentucky delegation prepared and served breakfast.

The morning game, Washer Toss (doubles), found stiff competition among the players. Playing to \\\"21 exact\\\" during elimination rounds was tough and some found themselves reversing direction when going over 21.

Washer Toss Winners
1st Place: Dana Abshier (COA member from IN) and Terry Hart (MI #145 Wing Knutz)
2nd Place: Delaney Albin (Dana Abshier\\\'s granddaughter) and Bill Voss (KY #180
Coachmen of the Blue Grass
3rd Place: Bill Thompson (COA member from KY) and Loren Goodale (COA member from MI)

Bean Bag Toss (doubles) was played after lunch. As in Washer Toss, the scoring was \\\"21\\\". This game had its share of folks falling backward when they exceeded 21, as well as having bean bags land on the overhead beams at times. Lucky there were some tall men who retrieved them.

Bean Bag Toss Winners
1st Place: Bill Voss (KY #180 Coachmen of the Blue Grass) and Terry Hart (MI #145 Wing Knutz)
2nd Place: Dave Albin (Dana Abshier\\\'s son-in-law) and Marty Hart (MI #145 Wing Knutz)
3rd Place: Jan Voss (KY #180 Coachmen of the Blue Grass) and Jerry Kilby (COA member from KY)

Ice cream was then served by District 3 officers Bob Workinger and Marty Hart.

Saturday night dinner was prepared by the Kentucky group and was delicious. It consisted of smoked pork loin, fried chicken, boiled new potatoes, green beans, corn, carrots, Cole slaw, rolls and butter. The dessert table was filled with a variety of pies and sliced Bundt cake.

The first-time attendees gathered for a group photo. They are:
Kentucky: Gary & Rebecca Best, Bob & Ann Brown, Jerry & Lesia Kilby, Bill & Cyndy Thompson, and Sam
& Charlene Williams.
Indiana: Dana & Debbie Abshier (with guests: daughter Deena, her husband Dave and their daughter, Delaney),
Mark & Carol Birch, and Don & Ginny Shine.
Michigan: Roger & Nancy Conley, Loren Goodale, Mike & Pat Lowe, and Bill & Rosanna Macfarlane.
Ohio: Bill & Carolyn Amos, Bill & Barb Carr, Richard & Eila Gessells, and Josh & Tammy Mack with children
Kahnor & Aerilynn.

Darlene and Bob Workinger gave a cloverleaf award to Bill & Barb Carr for being the first to register.
The District 3 officers were introduced: Joe & Gale Duggins (Vice President) and Terry & Marty Hart (Treasurer & Secretary), as well as themselves (President).

Special recognition was given to Bob & Darlene Workinger, who have attended all 35 District 3 Rallies!

Door prizes were then given out.

The 50/50 raffle was won by Gale Duggins (KY #226 Derby City Coachmen).

An afghan (made by Jan Voss) was raffled off and won by Earl Sherrow (KY #226 Derby City Coachmen).

Sunday morning there was a non-denominational service led by Bob & Darlene Workinger. Darlene read a scripture and a variety of articles that offered food for thought. Alma Bloss and Marty Hart assisted with readings, and Marty led the singing of two songs. Bob gave a prayer for safe travels, good health for all, and God\\\'s blessings. Everyone gathered in a circle, held hands, and Darlene said a few words, ending with . . . \\\"until we meet again\\\".
