On our last night together the guests went to a restaurant and Holly (Richter- other manager) and Jen (event planner for the ride) and Eve (from Marketing in Backroads) brought us in Southern BBQ- from a Gas Station. Not only can you buy booze at all the gas stations (which is another entire discourse entirely!) most of them also have full food service. 'Wine and Dine' shall we say?
Squeezing into trailers for leader meetings were quite difficult. This particular meeting was at the end of a long day, so we were all rewarded with a shot of whiskey in paper cups. Too bad it was so crammed you could hardly raise your arms!
The second night (the big party night) after the speeches, they invited Backroads onto the stage and they gave us a standing ovation (which was nice...) and played Beauty and the Beasts' 'Be Our Guest'.
I hope this sheds a little more visual insight into the week we had. Thinking of you all and so glad you've been enjoying it... I appreciate the texts, facebooks and emails... it makes me feel like home.
Love to you all.
