Convoy to Aberdeen Rally in May

Post by cgarbee » April 18th, 2012, 8:47 am

Just a reminder that we'll be running the East Coast Convoy to the Aberdeen, Maryland, MV Rally at Ripken Stadium again this year, and that I'll be cooking on Friday night for all the Convoy folks (wear your Convoy T-shirt so we know who you are...). Eastern NC BBQ once again...
You can sign up on the website at http://www.eastcoastconvoy.com

Looking forward to seeing a bunch of you soon,

As usual I am up against the wall again. I am hoping I get out of the hospital with enough time and energy and help to get my rig together and down there.

Yep really wanted to go myself, especially since RickF is making such an effort to go but daughter has a Crew Regatta so....... Oh well, my little girl is only going to be around another 2 summers before collage so she wins! After that plenty of time for MV meets...

OK, Got some news today. The doc is going to let me out in time to go to Aberdeen. The kicker is that I will still be on an I/V pump so I would need help both loading the camper at home and also getting set up at Aberdeen. I guess I will have to get some more info on what I will be able to do. They say they will have to set up a home health aide that can come to Aberdeen in case of a problem with the I/V. I think my insurance will have a serious problem with that. We will see, Have not missed a show since 88.

Thanks Jim, I will let you know what is happening after I talk to the doctor again. This was too close of a call to be pushing it to hard so I will try to get a little more info in the beginning of the week.

Rick,
I most likely will be on-site Wednesday (yes, I know that the East Coast Convoy arrives on Thursday, but those of us from the South are making the push to be early this year...) so I'll be able to help you unload/setup.
I'm in the usual spot (with some extra space...).
