Last year the driving range was packed. RVs resembled sardines in a can...which are pretty close quarters. Even though I was looking forward to the event I was not looking forward to parking in such close quarters. Well, the economy fixed my fears and the driving range was only have full this year. There was plenty of parking. Unfortuately, that meant there weren't as many contestants either. This year there were only 5 young people completing vs three times that many last year. The young people are what make the show and I was really dissapointed so few showed up.
This was the oldest fiddler..94 years young!
Two youngest fiddlers..Angie and Justin 13 & 12. They were really good!
I was planning to stay and watch the finals, but decided to head down to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument instead and catch up with the rest of the WINs.
We will be leaving in the morning (Monday Feb. 8) for Puerto Penasco,(Rocky Point) Mexico . The town is about 70 miles from the border . So far, there about 17 coaches that will be caravanning down to Puerto Penasco and we plan on boondocking on the beach. We've all purchased the mandatory liability insurance, filled up with water and made sure our holding tanks are empty and stocked up on $1.00 bills.
