The 52nd WBCCI International Meeting and Rally ended last night after a stirring performance by a piano, flute, and drums trio named Ivory & Brass. Ivory & Brass perform at Sun Valley Jazz Festival and, we’ve heard, even better groups do too. So we’re planning to attend this fall.
It’s time for this Rally to end. We fulfilled our work commitments, received our money’s worth in services and entertainment, and have loved greeting old friends and meeting new ones. A few we’ll see this fall. Some we might see next February, many we won’t see until next summer in Gillette, Wyoming, the site of the 53rd WBCCI Rally.
We decided Friday afternoon where we’ll next go. Camping World is (we hope) shipping a part to us to upgrade our RV’s battery charging system. They required a shipping address (of course) so we decided upon a campground in Minnesota. Okay, we’re heading to Minnesota when we leave Madison.
Madison is still largely unexplored territory for us, though. We have been occupied chiefly with the WBCCI rally and activities including the two seminars we presented (on full-timing) and with Debbie’s demanding task of coordinating distribution of all the competition awards. So we’ll hang around Madison for another few days before heading north and west.
I have to go for now, we’re on our way to First United Methodist downtown Madison. They have a super breakfast at 8:15 followed by a musical meditation period before worship. We’ve enjoyed it the past two Sundays and want to visit one more time. See you down the road!
