LAKESIDE RV PARK - Pahrump Nevada - May 2012

May 2012 — The Dust Devils had a big turnout for our 4 day rally at the Lakeside RV Park in Pahrump NV. The weather was perfect and allowed us to play a lot of games outside and the food was fabulous, as always. We had a big surprise while playing a cribbage tournament in the grassy area near the RV's. The sprinkler system came on and soaked all the players, cribbage boards and cards. We did finished the tournament as soon as we got everything dried out.

Longstreet Casino and RV Park

This campout was held at the Longstreet RV park that is located in the Amargosa Valley California. The weather did not cooperate. It was cold and we had rain every day but that did not keep us from having a good time. The RV park management provided us with a large conference room in the casino where we played games ate our meals and had our chapter meeting. You can view pictures that were taken at the outing at:
