Greetings from the Lake Perris Teardrop Gathering organizers!  Happy to make your acquaintances. We have participated in the Lake Perris gatherings for a number of years and have fully enjoyed the conviviality of fellow teardrop enthusiasts, the picturesque beauty of Lake Perris and its surroundings, the assorted activities like mingling with others, potluck and Dutch oven dinners, hiking the lake, not to mention relishing the great variety of teardrops that show up. We wouldn’t miss attending the annual March teardrop get-together for anything. So when we learned that the former organizers were retiring and new ones were needed, we did not hesitate to step up.

It didn’t take long for us to realize the gathering would pretty much run itself. Apart from acquiring permits, making sure necessities like tables and chairs for the pot luck were available and the restrooms were well-stocked, tee shirts designed and ordered, and of course registrations collected (OK, OK, there is a bit of work involved), our focus has been for participants to come, interact, relax and enjoy the weekend. That is the goal. The organizing part has been made easier because we actually like each other! Our planning sessions have been enjoyable. In short, we are pleased to do the necessary work and serve as your hosts for this amazing, fun-filled, “teardrops only” weekend.

The bottom line in all of this is simple: We want to provide the most enjoyable, fun-filled, and safest weekend possible. The truth of the matter is all of you provide that. Our job is to make sure it happens. And that we intend to do.
