Long Time No Post

Howdy Family
It has been quite some time since anyone posted on here. We have been doing well here at the Bishop house. Rachelle's OM team (of which I am the coach) placed 2nd at their regional competition in Travese City. They go on to compete at the State level on April 19 in Kentwood.
I told them that since they are making me drive to Grand Rapids, they have to win to the World Finals which are held in Maryland this year at the University of Maryland.

Also, Saturday @ Noon @ Linda D's is the Cookbook Meeting. See Ya All there, for a moment!!

Love You All

New Email Address!

Hey everyone I can hopefully now post again. I have a new email address and DSL!!! Apparently this upsets certain memebers of my family who don't! Mostly because they were told they CAN"T. So was I, but apparently some customer service rep didn't know and now I have it. SOOOO... I have a referral #. I was thinking if I send you a referral #, maybe that would help you get it too. Let me know if you want to try. Aunt Kathy, I am already sending it to you.

More About 2007 Family Campout

On July 14th we had a "cookbook" meeting, several things were discussed, mostly about the upcoming Campout. We had a report on the Bake Sale and plans for the Luau. The girls had to scale back their plans a bit, but there's to be a Limbo contest and leis for everyone. There will be a pond with ducks (plastic of course) to pick for prizes, etc.
Also planned for the weekend are the annual Bike Race and Fishing Contest along with something new, a Horseshoe Toss for the adults. For the Horseshoes there will be a cost of $10.00 per team (2 on each team) entered with half the entry fee going back into the family kitty and the other half being a prize for the winning team.
We've set up a Schedule of Events -- the Fishing Contest will run from Friday evening until 10 AM Sunday morning.
Saturday 12:00 Noon -- The Campout Dinner
Approximately 1:00 - 1:30 PM (immediately after dinner) The Family Portrait
2:30 PM The Bike Race
3:00 PM The Horseshoe Toss
7:00 PM The Luau begins
Sunday Approx 10:30-11:00 AM The Campout Breakfast
It will help a lot if the parents and/or grandparents can keep the kids near by after dinner so we can get the Family Picture taken quickly.
The glow necklaces have been ordered and will be available Friday and Saturday evenings at a cost of $1.00 for family members and $3.00 for strangers (if there are any leftover.)
For those who plan to camp the cost per night at Healy Lake is now $12.00.
Instead of having an auction or other fundraiser, we're accepting donations for the family kitty, which is used for various things like ordering the glow necklaces, renting the hall and buying supplies for Cookie Day and Christmas (holidays), etc.
