    In a flood is it wise to stand on a bridge over flooded waters? With the deterioration of the infrastructure in the US I am not sure that is very smart.

    Bloomsburg is suffering with record high water from TS Lee and Hurricane Irene. I bet the fairground is a mess.

    My heart goes out to the folks in Bloomsberg

    The Fairgrounds has 10' of water covering it and the town is devastated. Their facilities were excellent and the people were very friendly when we were there 2 months ago.
    All that money that we brought to the town is washed away, and I do not think that we could hold another rally there in the foreseeable future. Yeah, it was hot, but I do not think that the heat we had at the National was a normal situation for that area. I would have gone back to Bloomsburg if there was another National held there. I just want the same MOA rally staff that kept us as cool as possible at the '11 National! Great job folks!

    I hope MOA will send the town a message that they have our sympathy and our best wishes for their recovery. I will always think well of Bloomsburg, PA.
    Onward, through the fog!

    Heat aside, the folks there were indeed very receptive/friendly to me and others I talked to. Wishing them the best to come through this Aok. It was indeed a very pretty area of the USA to visit. Randy

    Using the old tried and true "Lighting not striking twice" saying. I would go back.
    Love the town and the whole set up at the fairgrounds if we had a little more a/c to hide in and some seats to rest on I will be there. I think we do need some rooms for the speakers that have a/c. Cattle barns are a little lame for me.
    The town and the people were incredible. I hope they recover quickly from this flooding.
