    Ya got that right. MAHHA is such a well oiled machine that it pretty much runs itself after the date is put on the forum. Whenever there is a need, someone steps in to fill it. Broken record but you all ARE great.

    The food at the potluck gets better and better each year and I was particularly thrilled when Dutch said he would take all the frozen burgers, hot dogs, etc. to Meals on Wheels. Even the leftovers went to a good cause. Thanks Dutch !

    It is my pleasure to give the leftovers to meals on wheels. They were getting tired of jello and pudding.

    Thanks to Everyone who makes this hang happen every year!
    We had an awesome weekend! Trixie had a great first hang, she really loved sleeping
    in the hammock and having all of the kids around to play with at the potluck. She thought it was cool she got to help with the raffle.
    Special thanks to Merry Mary for the smores fixins (She wanted me to tell you thank you again)
    Thanks to everyone for the contributions to the raffle and to those that made food!
    The underquilt that Crankybear won was toasty warm and as awesome as I expected Saturday night!!
    I will try and post pics later.
    I can't wait til spring!
    TY again everyone!

The newbies I met this weekend all seemed at ease with the experience, but I congratulate them on their pluck in jumping into such a lively group. Welcome once again!
    I'll admit I was more than a little overwhelmed when I showed up Friday. By Saturday, though, I think I had sort of found my place. Being a complete tiro (newb), I really just liked sitting quietly on the sidelines and listening.

    Now I've got a bad case of gear envy, and really want a dog. I'm going to spend the next week or so emptying my bank account. (starting with an underquilt.... *brrr*)

    Thanks to everyone who planned, donated, or made me feel welcome. Looking forward to the next one.

    What another super duper awesomely wonderful stupendously great time that NEVER LASTS LONG ENOUGH Mahha! It was sooooooooo great to see old friends and meet many new ones, and with a special appearance by the infamous (yes they do exist) Ginger Family, it was such a pleasure to finally meet the couple that literally has kept my derriere warm, hehe! I was sad that you had to leave early but I hope that little man is feeling better and that you all had a chance to stop and get some sleep????

    I was able to talk to so many people and have such great conversations that it always stinks when it has to end! So many people so little time so to those that I missed, my sincere apologies and hope that next time I can shake your hand and enjoy some great conversation!!

    Many, many, many thanks go to all the vendors who put up prizes for the raffle (including the one that I won)! To the burger flippers and hot dog turners a big THANK YOU (KK my daughter loooooooooved the burger)!

    Dutch, your the man, so many new inventions and all that jazz, but seriously the kind heart you have for taking the extra food to those who need it much, much respect for ya man! I told my daughter about that and she thought it was SUPER COOL!

    What can I say more, Mahha rock's, HF rock's, I love this place!!!!!!!!
