Greetings, All, Sweet Bride and I finally made it back home, safe and sound, just a little while ago. I finished unloading the food and necessaries from the truck, and we're having a snack before hitting the sack. Both of us really had a fine time at the OSG, and thank everyone who helped make it such an outstanding success! Once again, this was in large part to the amount of planning that Bernie Dawg did in advance of this event, and we all owe both him and his Bride a huge "Thank You"!! 8) For those that joined us for a day trip, which would be Uncle Pugsley and David OR, please send me a PT with your full names and mailing addresses, as we have a small gift for each of you for taking the time to join us all at the very first OSG! At the end of the raffle, which was hugely successful, we had two items left, which we unanimously voted to sent to you two Gentlemen for your efforts to come and visit us at Diamond Lake! As you didn't get a chance at the goodies which Drew and Steve, from MSR, so very generously left for our raffle, we have a nice MSR spatula for each of you for coming by for a visit to support the OSG!! I will send your spatulas out to you via the US Mail, before we head to our overseas gig, which will be very soon. We all appreciated your having taken the time to visit, and make the drive that allowed it to happen!! Thanks, Guys, and we hope to see you both again at future Gatherings, at which you can camp with us for the entire event! Cool!! 8) Take care, one and all. I promise to send photos and a report soon. Just too tired to do it tonight. We are hoping that the Dawg Twosome made it home, safe and sound today, as did we. Gary, please give us a shout, when time permits, to let us know that all is well, and a thousand thanks, once again, to you both for your efforts in making this outstanding event come to pass!! Take care, and God Bless! Every Good Wish, Doc P.S. I downloaded the photos from my camera to the computer, and they came out VERY nicely, indeed!! Lots of good ones from which to choose for posting here, which is very neat!! Again, I'll do this before we leave for Italy.
