Question Current Tally

Hello FROG members and admin. A few of us Rpod folks are just now finding these rallies and several are interested.

Is there a running Tally of how many are already confirmed attendings and how many spaces are left for those still interested?

Just trying to get some numbers together so that I might pass it along to other Rpodders on some other forums and spread the word about these events!

Wife and I are excited to hopefully come to this one and the Washington DC rally!

kymooses, no problem with getting into the rally, and at least at this point still getting full hookups. We've gotten a pretty good stack of registrations so far, but it's still early.

You can get more information and download the registration forms for both the 2012 International Rally and the Washington, DC Cherry Blossom Festival on the new FROG website, www.forestriverfrog.com. Please help spread the word to your r•pod friends and other Forest River owners.

We're currently working on a trip in the southwestern US for next year, and exploring sites for a west coast rally.

There's a major mailing in the works to get in touch with folks who might not yet have discovered these forums or the website, and expect a flood of registrations once that gets out.

We're looking forward to a LOT of fun.

We're about to announce something scheduled for the east coast of the U.S., and are currently working on something for the west coast and, yes, something in your beautiful country as well. (We drove through the Canadian Rockies from Canmore to Jasper and back on a trip to Alaska about four years ago, and seldom have we seen such spectacular scenery.)

I'm sorry if I soured your grapes, and hope they become sweeter. If you let them ferment, and have them in a glass alongside some cheese and crackers, they might taste a little better.
Glad to hear you're considering a rally in California. It is over 1,900 miles one way to Elkhart so I will pass for 2012 in hopes one will appear in California in coming years.

Nigel and Bev
Yes you are right we did have the 1st International FROG Rally in Branson but now Forest River is jumping in and it is their 1st. So it starts all over.
Anyway hope you two are having a great time and hope to catch you again.

I'm waiting for one in California too! Got a couple of SoCal campgrounds in mind as suggestions when you are ready. Have to admit that NoCal is real nice too.

John, (Iggy), they are definately talking about a West Coast Rally in 2012, Since we will be based in BC from April 2012 that would suit us much better, Elkart works out at at 5000m round trip, too far for us.

It will be great to see you guys again, so I can return the wrench I stole from you . On our 34000km 2011 trip (yes 34000km more than half of this was hauling the 5er) we saw much of WA, OR and NoCal, awsome, states, a rally anywhere there would be Ace!

Cheers

Nice you remebered the wrench. I figured you needed more than I did at the time. Have a great holiday season and if you ever want to warm up in the winter come to Arizona. Today it will be about 79 degrees here in Phoenix. This is the time to visit.

Iggy, it was 27 degrees here in northern Indiana this morning, and not going to be a heck of a lot warmer this afternoon. You're starting to make Arizona sound pretty good for a rally location.
