*August Rally At Prosser*
The first ever joint rally with NorCal will be at Prosser Family campground near Truckee Off Hwy 89. The dates are Wednesday August 5 to Sunday 9, 2015. Hopefully you have reserved your site and will be joining us for this rally. SNU members Don and Gail and NorCal members Claudette and George have come up with a full agenda for this weekend. If you can’t make the whole rally, feel free to stop by for a visit.
Due to a cancellation, there is a site available for the Prosser Rally. If you want to attend, contact Claudette Paige firstname.lastname@example.org for details ASAP.

Claudette Paige with NorCal is working with SNU member Don Williams on the joint rally at Prosser August 5 – 9, 2015. Hopefully you have reserved your site for this exciting rally. It looks like most of the campground sites are taken.
Here is some current info on that rally.
I (Claudette) just found out that the Independence Lake Preserve, managed by The Nature Conservancy, has a “tour” of Independence Lake on August 8. They only do 4 of these special tours from July to October. Independence Lake Preserve is 10 miles north of Prosser on 89. They could lead a tour on the 8th, Saturday afternoon at 1:30. They will need a list of names of people going on this tour. Any SNU members who are coming to this rally should email Claudette ASAP to sign up for the tour email@example.com
To see what is available at this newly added (2010) Nature Conservancy preserve go to this link.
On recommendation by SNU member Jeni Root, Diane and Anita checked out Independence Lake in 2007. Although not appropriate for a rally it is a beautiful place. See the photo gallery.
Claudette has been working on some other possibilities for the Prosser rally. These include the option to attend the musical “Fantasticks” at Sand Harbor on Thursday night. Another idea is to plan to take the Squaw Valley gondola to do some hiking from Squaw Valley’s High Camp. You would have to make your own reservations for these activities.
Don has proposed these ideas for rally activities: Water Use Management -|- A sourdough pancake breakfast for Saturday morning and roll into a short discussion of sourdough -|- Dutch Iron Cooking (provided no limitations on wood or charcoal fires) -|- Electrical System Management -|- Unexpected Repairs; broken rivets, loose screws, sagging doors, water leaks etc -|- Alyeska the Great Land Caravan slide show
See you at Prosser!
