On February 22, 2017 I emailed asking you to mark Saturday, September 9 on your calendar as the 2017 date for the annual gathering of Ludlow's Whackos. I hope you did. The Rhymin Clown has secured the Fellowship Hall of The Sweetwater Baptist Church in Thomson Georgia for our venue this year. It's a nice facility, easily accessed just 2-4 miles on the left, south of downtown Thomson main street.. The address is 1606 Wrens Hwy., Thomson Ga., 30824, identified also as Hwy.17.
I'm not sure what surprises The Rhymin Clown will have for us but the agenda will loosely follow our past reunions allowing time for story swapping, lying and laughing. We will begin to gather any time from around 9:00, with plans to eat lunch around 12:30 to 1:00. Unless I notify you differently, all eating utensils, plates, cups napkins etc., tea and water will be furnished, as well as the fixings for tomato sandwiches in memory of Ludlow's fondness for 'mater sandwiches. If you wish to add a dish, fruit or dessert, please feel free to do so, but it's not expected.
For anyone wanting to go on Friday I can recommend where I have stayed previously and already have my 9/8/17 reservation, it's The Hampton Inn located on The Washington Hwy just off I-20, phone 706 595-5300. There are several other motels in the general area one of which is Comfort Inn & Suites, 706 595-6500.
Contact me if you have questions 706 344-8966 or Joe, The Rhymin Clown. He is on Facebook or phone 706 466-0984.
