The May rally was held in Rock Falls, Illinois at Crystal Lake RV Park.  Hosted by Gayle and John Stone with co-host Shelia and Mike Scott.  The campground is well maintained with level and spacious sites.  They also have a lake for swimming and a go-cart track, but the spring weather didn’t allow us to enjoy the amenities.
The rally started Thursday with a meet and greet to share some delicious deserts.  The turnout was great with Larry and Jolly Ann Whitener, Bob and Paula Young, Steve and Debbie Rittenhouse, Mike and Shelia Scott, John and Gayle Stone, Pat Robison, Bill Andrews, and Bud and Ronda Howard.
Friday breakfast of egg, French toast, sausage, fruit, orange juice and coffee to drink. A short business meeting followed.  After a short discussion about hosting the 2020 BOA rally no decision was made but Jerry Hardacre did find a possible location at the Amana Colonies in Iowa.  The Amana Colonies are seven German villages.
MAB is still searching for candidates to serve on the MAB Board in 2020 and 2021.  If you are interested in serving on the board, please contact Gayle Stone.  The office of President and Vice President are the two open positions.
Dinner Friday evening was at Candlelight Inn in Rock Falls where some people ordered the local favorite Chicken George.   The same evening, we gather around a campfire to keep warm and talk about our winter adventures.
Saturday was a day of adventure for everyone with breakfast and lunch on your own.  Some of us enjoyed a breakfast at Benny’s Red Apple in Sterling.  At 11:00 we traveled across the river to tour the Dillon Home in Sterling.  The Dillion Family owned and operated Northwester Steel and Wire for many years and produced some of the first barbed wire made in America.   
Saturday evening our hosts prepared a Pasta Bar with side dishes provided by members attending the rally. The dinner was followed by several games of Corn Hole between John Stone and Steven Rittenhouse on one team with Mike Scott and Paul on the other team. 
The 50/50 raffle was won by Steven Rittenhouse.
Before departing on Sunday, we enjoyed a continental breakfast.  A good time was enjoyed by all. 
Don’t forget to attend our June 20th – 23rd rally hosted by Bob and Paula Young with co-host Morris and Linda Dewall at Geneseo Campground in Geneseo, Illinois. After making your reservation please e-mail the host that you will be attending.
