                                   April 27 and 28 campout was warm but windy at Glen Ullin.
                                          Friday attendance was small.

                                                     The Hosts did their usual good job.

                                      The Saturday attendance had more of the drive ins in attendance.

                       Conversations, cards and puzzles.


                                  There was a good turnout.

              Fran and Earnest Fritz were celebrating their 59 anniversary on this 15th day of Sept.

              Got to watch that you don't over cook the spaghetti!

    And what about the garlic toast?  I think Louise was moving to get out of the picture, got you.

There were 24 campers present and all chapters were represented with the exception of the Sakakawea  Chapter.  Things we do the best, converse and eat!

                   It was warm, so many found shade.

                     Luther and Luana have 2 decks and often times that's where the food was being placed.

                                                           More preparation.
                         Hey Bob looks like you are checking things out.

      On Friday afternoon we caravanned to Lemmon to see the Chief Kokomo Gallery. John Lopez is the sculpturist and explained his work. 

           The sculptures all done in  metal and bronze, lots of times using junk ground articles he had found.

      Here's the group in the hall listening to his venture.

         This shows 2 buffalo fighting and if you look closely it tells the story of the Custer massacre.

               An art selection of an octopus.

        Outside on the north side of the building is a new work of a moose.

           On Friday evening Luther and Luana with the help of Bob Hatz and Wilbert a fish fry was the supper.
                 Oh, Oh, good!

        tables were set up on the East side of the house.

                        Everyone had a wonderful time.

            Here are the guys cooking the fish in hot oil.

And than it's meeting time.

Those in attendance.

And then there were this puzzle (1000 pieces) to be conquered. 

It was a Marathon.  But these three seemed to be determined.

And one leader of the project was camera shy.

It turned out to be a 48 hr marathon, and it took many to help.

It wasn't all fun and games, the women had their 1'st meeting to discuss
plans for the tea at the Samboree.

Looks like an idea being demonstrated!
