Dolly Update

2128 24 July 2008

stopped by the hotel tonight and canceled the Coop Charting event.

Their phones were down most of the day but are up now. (which is why people who tried to call today didn\'t get an answer.) The lady at the front desk was answering it tonight one after the other telling people they did not have rooms. So expect a busy signal and try again.

She went thru the list of people she had registered under Power Squadron, there were six:

Barb Ketchum
Frank B (she didn\'t write down the last name before she canceled it and then couldn\'t remember it. DB2000 shows two Frank B.s - Boerner from GB and Beneke from Houston.)
Shirley Heald
Jean Hamilton
James Harrison
Jack Peters

I canceled all of these reservations.

If you have a reservation and your name is not on this list, I did NOT cancel it. You will have to call yourself.
American Best Value Inn (Formerly the Ramada Limited)

The hotel suffered some damage to the roof and they told me they had some musty rooms, but people right now are desperate for a dry bed and they were full up. I don\'t think it hurt their feelings that we canceled this weekend. They actually seemed relieved.

I have picked all the emails from DB2000 for this list to notify ya\'ll, but didn\'t have one listed for Frank Beneke. If he\'s the one with the reservation, can someone please let him know.

Please also pass this information on to those members you know who had reservations but are not on this list.

Additional info regarding Chris\'s place. We waded through my new lake and a friend picked us up on the dry side and gave us a ride over to Chris\'s RV. No flooding, no damage to either trailer or truck. There was a little bit of water in the bathroom where a vent lid came open, but as luck would have it a garbage can was precisely positioned under it and captured about 2 inches of water before it could get to the floor.

In general, her RV park suffered damage to skirting, awnings, and car ports. There was one RV tipped over on it\'s side and another 5th wheel unit that had sunk it\'s front landing gear into the mud so it was tipped forward. Some of the \"stick buildings\" lost some shingles. All in all, very low damage for an RV park that got pounded by 20 inches of rain and 85-90 mph winds with gusts up to 105mph.

Chris now has coffee but is still short on Chocolate.....
