Hitch 'N' Go  #082
Kissimmee, FL

April 2011


Our Vice-Presidents, Jim and Laureen Kelly, are responsible for obtaining contracts with campgrounds during their term. They both have worked very long and hard over the past months to find new and interesting locations for our members to �Hitch �n Go�!

One such place was visited by us the 5th weekend of April: Wekiva Falls Resort in Sorrento, FL. What a stellar campground! The entire area is HUGE, with spacious sites. The hall where we danced and shared meals was large with plenty of room to spare. The campground staff - very friendly and accommodating, especially the owner, who made several stops to see whether we were doing ok or needed anything. Any concerns were immediately rectified.

Six couples arrived early on Thursday spending their time setting up and looking around. All 6 couples went out to dinner to the Smokehouse, a super fine restaurant in nearby Sanford. All the food was so delicious and highly recommended to other campers arriving Friday.

By Friday dance time, we had 15 rigs set up with 13 member couples, one guest couple, John and Nancy Smik and one rig housing our Vice-Presidents� daughter, Kim, her 2 children Tyler and Lauren and Lauren�s friend Kaitlyn. The Reardon�s grandson Aaron also was in attendance.

Saturday morning after a pancake breakfast put on by the Hosts/Hostesses Kellys and Sortores, the Board had their meeting.

The weather was gorgeous throughout the weekend, albeit somewhat chilly in the early mornings for some of us!

By late Saturday morning when it was time for kite-flying and hot dog eating, the weather was superb. We had near perfect attendance for the afore mentioned activities, a myriad of kites flying and plenty of hot dogs cooked up by Jim Kelly. Thanks to him and the other members who brought extras. What a wonderful surprise to have Lee and Joyce Whitten stop by and spend time there with us.

Soon two o�clock rolled around and it was time for Ron Reardon�s APD workshop where he had us dancing all over the floor! Before we realized it, the time came for our potluck dinner and General meeting.

All of us were very happy to see our cuer Jan Shankle arrive, with son Dennis, at the Saturday dance. We gave them a warm welcome back! The dancing evening was enjoyed by all, resplendent with plenty of laughter and good memories!

Members attending this campout: Barlow, Benne, Brown, Collins, Danza, Hartwig, Julian, Kelly, Oakes, Reardon, Riley, Sortore, Taylor(A &A)

There are sure to be more new locations planned for our dancing/camping pleasure and we thank Jim and Laureen for making it so.
