It was a blast!!!!!

Martha - that is just awful! I'm so sorry about your car and that you could not make it. UGH! I can't believe you have to go thru this again! I agree with Amy/Ruby - when we do these things we need to have phone numbers to check in.

Lorenamay - that just stinks! I hope you feel better soon and will look forward to meeting you at the next one.

Marie - that's such a bummer but again - I now see the importance of getting certain phone numbers out to the group when we are meeting. Next time for sure.

Steve - now that's a bummer. Would have loved to met 'AT GOAL STEVE'! You could have shared your inspiration and enthusiasm with us! Next time!

It was a fabulous day!

Ruby - how's the sun burn???

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

Steve, you're not the only one not keeping up with emails! I THOUGHT I knew where Green Hill Park was (coming from Fitchburg), but it turned out to be Elm Park. Then I found Quinsig State Park. Never made it to Green Hill, & feel so STUPID!

Glad everyone had a good time, and next time, I'll be SURE to know where I'm going!!! Hope someone posts some pictures!

I am so sorry you got this awful case of poison ivy, LORENAMAY, but ANY poison ivy is awful, let alone all the places you got it. Good luck!

Oh Martha, I am so sorry to learn of your accident. Thank goodness you weren't hurt. Us old (relatively speaking) die-hearts should exchange cell phone numbers for things such as this.

I had a BLAST yesterday. It was so awesome to see some familiar faces & meet the new ones. EVERYONE was so much fun to be with and ALL the food was delish!!

I never did go to "Crystal Caves" after our picnic. I figured I just head home and picked up my granddaughter along the way home so she could spend the night. We both had hoped to play a few games but I was really pooped & didn't even blog. I'm writing one now so keep your eyes open with different pix than what Tony took.

to you all!!

I cna't believe it!!!

Last I read the Sparkrally was going to be in Fitchburg and we were planning my son's B-day party on Saturday, so I didn't pay attention to it. Now I find out the rally was in Worcester at Greenhill Park. We also changed my son's party to today.

I am about 5 min's away from Greenhill!!! SOOOOOOO sorry I didn't look at this sight earlier, I would have loved to get together with all of you.

Glad to read that all had fun.

Steve

I am so disappointed! I was at the grocery store picking up some seltzer water, and as I was pulling out, some dumb woman talking on her cell driving an extended length SUV pulled out of her parking space and smashed into my passenger side rear end! She got out of the car (STILL ON THE PHONE!) and said "I never saw you..... I am fine, my car is not (is there a target on it? I've had it two months and this is the second time somebody's plowed into it. It's red; not hard to miss!!!) Was able to drive it home, but didn't dare drive it to Worcester. Back to the body shop and a rental car on Monday!

So, needless to say, I'm not at the Spark Rally. I was soo excited to meet everybody! Trying to look on the bright side: I now have dinner or lunch for the week!

Hope everybody had fun. I hope so see pictures!

We are at the Greenhill Park...for the rally. Go straight down the road...right past the big pavilion we are in a shelter with pcinic tables next to the lake on the right hand side......you will have to turn left into the parking lot once you pass the shelter.....signs at the shelter but due to the wind...can't place them for the wind takes them away.'

WOOHOO!!!

Sorry Amy - I actually do have some but can't fit them in my car! Ugh.


I got this email from Ruby - so I guess this is where we should all attempt to go as there are several entrances to this place.

When you come down the main road, (Ruby thinks it's Rte 9; You'll see a large sign (actually two of them). One will say Worcester Technical High School and other will say Green Hill Park. Fromthere it is a STRAIGHT shot from the big sign right into the park.

Amy - should we swap phone numbers?? I'm going to email you mine now.

Maryanne

P.S. Lorena - I'm so sorry about the poision ivy. We'll miss you today!

Dear Team,
I am SO disappointed that I will not be able to attend the Spark Rally afterall. I came down with poison ivy this week...on my face(forehead, temple, cheek, eyelid and lips), my neck, my arm and my stomach. I am blaming my dog for this case, since I have it nowhere below my waist. I am on medicine (thank God) but am still a sight to behold, itch alot at night, and make many poison ivy susceptible people very nervous (not that I can blame them).
I feel bummed because I looked forward to meeting everyone. I was supposed to bring flavored seltzers and a broccoli salad as well. I'm really sorry; I hope that I am not causing to much trouble for the everyone.
I hope you guys have a great time. LORENAMAY

I am soooo excited about this rally!!

Our group will be so easy to find, even if there wouldn't be any signs because it's nothing but a straight shot, from the main road. There are no twists, nor turns because the road ends in the park!!

I am so sorry, Maryanne, I thought I emailed a picture of the entrance at the main road to you. I have just sent it to you now.

I just thought of it, we can't add pix to our messages any way so I'm making a blog with the pictures.

I'm so excited for this!! Hopefully the hot weather will be gone by then!

Maryanne - We've got 11 people signed up for food, etc. and I see you sent the change of venue e-mail to 28. If you don't hear back from some people, maybe we can compare names and see who may not be coming....

Is anyone coming from near Worcester who could bring ice? I'd be happy to do this, but I live in Weymouth so it might be "ice soup" by the time I arrive (although there would be no calories!!!)

I am happy to drive/carpool with others from the South Shore/128 south area...

Can't Wait!!

I'm still planning on coming. I should have thought about the parking problem at Coggshall, but we seldom go there in the summer! Even though we live just a road away, we camp at the lake in Ashburnham all summer, so never get to Cogshall.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

SPARK RALLY CHANGE IN LOCATION!!!!!

I just sent out an email to those of you that plan to attend the rally/gathering on July 30th. We are changing the location to Green Hill Park in Worcester.

Please check out my email and again, I really hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone and everyone still plans to attend.

I'm going to send out an email to all the names I have on my list that said they are attending.

In my note I will state that we are meeting at the park at 11:00 and there will be signs. We can send one final email out the day before if we have more details.

I am also going to ask if there is anyone from the Worchester area that could pick up the person that told Bernice they had no ride.

Hmmmm, maybe I'll check out the directions to see if I go anywhere near Worchester on the way?

Right now I have the following names and this is who I will direct the email to and ONLY this group:

Talk2me7797, peacefulhome11, fiestysue, sydneyh, irenehud, redsoxgirl15, flpalm, louvrelover, roseaclark, stampingrl2, sexysuzy, ronosof, astorres1, jiacolo, rubyclaire, moms100, colleena21, cherielh13, catchat711, limogal, starofsea, ejgaston, lorenamay, janemar2, nanad5, fitformykids, dross0616, boysenberry1. Some of these are maybes so I'm hoping they will confirm either way.

Please let me know ASAP if you know of any other names aside from what I have?

Thanks
Maryanne

GREAT, Amy!

From what I could tell, it seemed to be quite hilly, but like I said, I'm going to try to get back there again this weekend. At least now I don't need my daughter to show me the way! Ha, ha, ha!

YAY!!! I do hope everything continues to work in your favor, Amy. There is nothing more frustrating than car trouble, especially when you are not a mechanic!

My daughter & I took a ride out to Coggshall on Sunday, but it was so packed with cars parked on the side of the road and a road being blocked off that we never really had a chance to stop to check things out. They were having some kind of concert.

The main road in goes up to the gazebo/house, and from my understanding it would normally go around to the left, past the gazebo to go back out, but that was closed off due to the concert so we had to go to the road on the right. It was really QUITE difficult to check it out. Maybe I can try it again this weekend.

I know one of our team members who was thrilled we were having it there said she grew up going there, maybe she will have a better feel for us.

I don't really think we'll need the canopies because it's so shady already, but I'll bring them anyway, just to be on the safe side.

Amy-Jean said there are bathrooms there at the "cottage/gazebo or whatever it is that are usually open.

From the looks of things, my team members don't really seem interested. I told them we'd like to get a head count to give us an idea how many people to expect and that I really need to hear by this Friday. So far, I have NOT heard back from ANYONE.

Amy, if you want, I meet you earlier to help you find things & set up signs etc. just let me know.

By the way, whoever sends out the message to everyone, please make sure you let them know that even though this place does have a lake, there is NO SWIMMING ALLOWED!
Boo Hoo!

I certainly hope that things do work out there.

WOO HOOOO! That's fabulous news Amy. So glad it's not such an expensive job and I'm sure you and Tony are greatly relieved. Cars - they are always SO expensive.

I have a question - I would like to send out a global email to finalize everything and say this is who I have on the list etc etc................ BUT, I would also like to add WHERE we are meeting? I do not know this park so have no idea how big it is or where we will be 'setting up'. Anyone want to clue me in and then I can send out a note?

Thanks

Opps, gotta run, my WW meeting is in 10 minutes.

Maryanne

Amy - I am so sorry you are having vehicle problems! That just stinks! You had such high hopes for this car when you bought it.

Maybe there is someone else coming to the rally from your area????

I have a list of about 35 people that have said they were coming.

Ruby / Amy / Bernice - do you guys have names of folks from your other teams? If so, can you please send them to me ASAP so I can compile one list. I can send an email out listing all the names we have and who needs rides and let's see if we can work something out.

Just got bad news today.....our vehicle is have tranny problems...so we will not be able to go to the SPARKrally in Fitchburg. We can not trust going that far at this moment. We are in the works of getting another vehicle but nothing will happen until after the first of next month.....I am terribly upset but this is out of our control. I just hope we don't have any major break down until we get the second vehicle. Please keep us in your prayers for us to remain safe......

Yeah, no grilling. Let's attempt to keep it simple.

Some different salads (pasta, tossed, macaroni type etc), maybe fruit, maybe some low fat cold cuts, light breads/rolls.............. easy stuff.

Even though I lived not far from Coggshall, I never got to go so I have no idea if there are grills.

Amy, I don't remember grilling last year at Forest Park, did we? My feelings are there is just too much work to grill. I would suggest foods to just put on a table to share, that way no one is stuck at the grill either.
