A great time was had by the Florida Springs members attending the 2013 Rally. As you know by now, this is the last year for this Rally. It will be replaced by Alumaflamingo. Details can be found at www.alumaflamingo.com.
The big news for our Unit is that our Food Barrel decoration took 1st Place, thanks to the creative decoration designed by Fran Scott. She based her work on the Rally Theme that paid recognition to the Branches of our Military Services. Great Work Fran !!
We also need to recognize the hard working group of Florida Springs volunteers who served as chairpersons and workers for the Rally. Without their willingness to help, the Rally would not have been successful.
Finally, our 1st Vice President Dick Smolk and his Mate, Sandy Hauner represented our Unit at the opening Ceremony.

Plans are underway for the March Rally at Ocala North RV Park , 16905NW Hwy 225, Reddick, FL 32686.
Bill Alsmeyer and Barbara & John Miller are putting together a St Patty’s Day Celebration for the Rally theme.
What we know so far is the Rally will kick off on Thursday afternoon with a get together followed by a Dutch treat dinner at Roberto’s Italian Restaurant. Bill promises that we’ll enjoy the evening for our dining pleasure.
Friday morning the activities will get started with a pot-luck breakfast in the Park clubhouse. Breakfast will begin at 8:30, however, the coffee pot will be steaming hot for the early risers.
After breakfast there will be a tour of the Matheson Museum in Gainesville. There is a $5/person donation required .
Friday afternoon you’ll be challenged by participating in “The Amazing Race.” Don’t expect to board an airplane for this event so your passports are not needed. However, it will require your solving some challenging events.
Dinner Friday evening will be a BBQ provided by the rally hosts.
Saturday morning the campground will be serving an Oatmeal with Ice Cream Breakfast in the clubhouse and the rally fee will include every ones’ participation.
Saturday evening you’ll enjoy a special St Patty’s Day dinner.
For the gamers in the group, the clubhouse will open each night for cards, joker or what ever suits your taste.
The campground Rally rate is $19/night with the rate good for 2 additional nights.
Bill, Barbara and John hope for a large turn-out for this Rally. If you have NOT signed up to attend and plan on joining us , please send an e-mail to:firstname.lastname@example.org

Red’s Restaurant in Hernando is our meeting place for a noon Luncheon on Thursday, January 10th. Red’s has a reputation for great service with outstanding food served up in huge portions at reasonable prices.
The place is not much to look at from the outside – but that is done on purpose. Inside it is a cozy place to relax and enjoy a very good meal. During the cooler months the fireplace may be going, which is especially nice.
Reds was started by the previous manager of Stumpknockers. Red and his wife Tara have created a warm atmosphere, tremendous food and a wait staff that is simply awesome. Try anything on the menu without fear.
If you like fish try the Mahi Mahi Burger which is a huge 8 oz piece of fish, grilled or blackened and served on a grilled burger bun with a choice of two sides. Their generous sides are French Fries, Chef’s Vegetable, Pasta Salad, Cole Slaw, Fruit Yogurt, Mashed Potatoes or Fresh Cut Fruit.
What more can you ask for?
If you haven’t put your name on the list to attend, give Bill Shay a call and let him know you will be joining the crew at Red’s on January 10th.
Red’s is located at:
8411 North Carl G Rose Highway
Hernando, FL 34442
