Sunrise Bible Study Group Gathering
Shenandoah Crossings Resort, Gordonsville, VA
April 27-30, 2015

Members of the Sunrise Bible Study Group have met each morning for more than 51 years, but many of us never get a chance to meet each other face to face. A gathering was planned for the Spring of 2015 with the following purpose:

Meet SRBSG participants face-to-face, experience the net each morning side-by-side (we will have an operational station), pray together, communion together, share testimonies, relax, enjoy the Spring season together in Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, or maybe just enjoy a quiet time alone or together with the Lord.

The following people were present for all or part of the Gathering:

Jim Spoerl - NG1Y Tom Sefranek - WA1RHP
Bill Thiele - W2BWL  
Steve Elliott - N2COJ Esther Elliott
George McCue - N2LAH Sharon McCue
Tony Carraturo - W2VTJ Linda Carraturo
Fred Smith - KC2ZER Barbara Smith
Terry Jamison - N3WIL  
Eric Disher - KB4MTS Jackie Disher
Jim Grainger - KE4NLI  
Bill Ramsey - K8BDR  
Del Lafevor - WB8FYR Ruth Lafevor - WD8ODG
Jerry Fray - N9TU  
Laurel Short - WA9RDL Wy Short

K8BDR was the first to arrive around 2:00 PM on Monday, April 27. First on Bill's agenda was to get the station antenna set up between two trees close to the 3-bedroom he was staying in and get the station set up. Bill was mighty efficient at that for it was nearly completed when Del and Ruth arrived at about 2:45. We had reserved 3 two-bedroom cabins and 3 three-bedroom cabins similar to the following pictures:

Although this was not one of our cabins, the three-bedroom cabins were similar on the outside to this view The two-bedroom cabins were like this and near the lake

Monday evening set the pace for a wonderful gathering. The fellowship began by gathering together for snacks in one of the three-bedroom cabins. Let the pictures speak for themselves.

You can only guess who Del (WB8FYR) is taking a picture of ...and the conversations carry on
