Turkey Run has long been driven by TRADITION. For Serb Fest’s First Generation, coming to Turkey Run meant fantastic canoeing and hiking and an opportunity for old friends and family to gather around a grill for good food, good conversation, and of course, good holy water. While Serb Fest's First Generation laid the foundation for what TR has become today, the Second Generation has introduced new traditions giving their incarnation of Serb Fest its own identity.


So many outstanding comments have been spoken by TR attendees over the years. Luckily, we've been archiving these hilarious quotes since 2003! Ill be the first to admit that on many of these, you either had to be there, or at least need to know the personality of the person responsible for the quote. But there are plenty that stand on their own as genius and downright hysterical for anyone listening or reading! The only question is - WHICH IS THE BEST?! We'll let you be the judge!

The Quote of Quotes :: The scene is Friday night a little after dusk. Most of us were huddled around the tables and grill around our usual picnic area. The ranger's truck rolled by slowly as is usual for this time of night. He came out and walked slowly over to the group asking how we were doing / where we are staying / etc... basically trying to get us to clean up and head out for the night. This would have been particularly problematic since we had just fired up the grill and were ready for a long opening night of catching up. We responded back saying that we were staying at the Inn. This was apparently the right answer since he said he would have to kick us out otherwise.

At this point the tide turned. Someone, I believe Monica (check my facts), said that we had been coming here for years and knew the drill. The ranger said "yeah, I've heard that one before". Then he paused almost as if thinking to himself and said, "Hey, wait a second. Are you part of that big group?" At this point I jump in and say something to the extent of "Maybe." You have to realize that, at this point, we had no reason to think we were the "big group". He asked the name of our group. I hesitated for a second and said "Zelenkovich?" He responded with "Hmm, yeah. That might be right." I tried again with "Boskovic". The ranger lit up and said "Yeah! That's the group." Needless to say, from the point on, he lit up and was a much happier camper! The ranger then said that Dan had called the Inn earlier that week to reserve rooms for 2012. The night Dan called, he had a few to drink and was making Dan-like banter with the Inn receptionist, a guy named Trevvor (with two "V"s). Dan asked for a discounted rate on account of our coming to TR for "30 years". Trevvor said he'd look into it. Then Dan said we were a big deal and mentioned the website. Said "you got a computer? punch it in.". Trevvor did, and was immediately dumbstruck. Apparently this was such a big deal that Trevvor showed his coworkers the website the following day, which included the park ranger. The rest is history.

One quick potential hiccup during this whole thing, the ranger said "my favorite thing on the website was the part about the white trash." This is the point where things could have taken a turn for the worse (did the ranger think we were saying all Indiana locals were WT?). So there I was, working the grill while wearing my beater and said "yeah, seems like you get all kinds of people crawl out of the woodwork during race weekend." Apparently this was again the right answer because the ranger just laughed, agreed and left us to grill for the rest of the night. We of course offered him any cevapcici throughout the rest of the weekend. Sadly, he never accepted. He did, however, give us some inside intel that the main shelter wasn't reserved the next night and we could probably get it if we showed up early.
