It all started in the summer of 2002 Wayne E-mailed me asking if we can meet in NC when I came down. I said sure and after a few E-mails we thought Hey why not make this a get together. We liked the thought of meeting some of the members from the board so Patty & I post about the get together. Patty did most of the work to get this going and I have to say it was the best thing that has ever happened. Thank you Patty and Wayne for all your hard work all these years.


So during the next few moths we heehawed around on a date in Oct. After all the input from the ones that said they would come we picked Oct 11th as the cookout.


The originals members of the group that meet this year was Patty & Wayne, Ron and his family, Gary and his family , Dave T., , Ken and his family and my dad and me Carl. We even had our first anneal Rock Swap that night. We all had a great time and decided as a group to make this an annual event.


As the years are going by the get together's are getting bigger every year with other members of the board wanting to come and meet other rock hounds from the board.
