: BYRON AND BETTY PIGG
Wednesday October 3, 2012
Wednesday October 3, 2012 was a big day for Byron and Betty Pigg the hosts of the Eagles International Branson 7 Day Rally. After months of preparing the big day had arrived. Bryon had all of the reserved spaces assigned at the Branson Lakeside RV Park. Betty had worked her magic with the fall display to make people feel more welcome. One by one the big beautiful Eagle Conversions started to roll in and it was not long until everyone had finished their ritual of connecting water, power, TV and sewer. Then they could get down to the serious business of catching up on all the gossip since the last rally. This usually included what had happened with their bus, dogs and grandchildren.
