So my question to those who have attended the rally before and added an extra day, does this sound about right? Should I notify Bob of my wanting an extra day or does the Fairground office work closely with Bob?

I just don't want to arrive a day early and told "Ooops you goofed up" Sorry.
Did you know all early arrivals have to work the rally?
Park lot attendants.

Well OK...I guess the first timers have to pay their dues somehow. But you did notice my Avatar on the left right?

You look to be supervisor material.

Just so you know, Iggy was kidding in his post.

I figured he was kidding. I needed a chuckle this evening though and just had to play around with it.

I did get a nice response via email from Bob assuring me that it would be ok and he would make sure I was on the list the fairgrounds will be giving him of early arrivals.

Haven't owned my Forest River product more than 5 months now and already I'm very pleased with the folks here on this site.

Can hardly wait for the Rally.

The system is well past 800, I was 861 and that was a couple of weeks ago.

For early arrival, please call Bev or Diane at the fairgrounds. The number is (574) 533-3247. They'll make sure I have the list. They work closely with us and treat us wonderfully. I'll be there on Monday to visit with them about early arrivals and several other items.

Well, after a couple of months of indecision I'm on the verge of deciding to attend. I was going but then read somewhere it wasn't "kid" friendly I decided not to go. We're raising our grandchildren, 13 year old twins and a 10 year old who always travel with us. I have a couple of maintenance items that I'd prefer the factory to deal with and we'll be towing our toad so we can leave the fairgrounds to entertain the kids if necessary.

Will there be vendors present? I'm thinking tire monitors, awnings, surge protectors, batteries, solar, etc. Is there a list of vendors I can access or can somebody give me an idea of what might be available. We live in a small town in Central Washington and although I hate using my vacation time to work on the coach I'd really like a factory tour so this may be a chance to do both at one stop. My local dealer , FR, can do all the above but I like to look at what I'm getting, talk to the installer and make sure it's done right. Plus I'll be there and can supervise the installation, providing the vendors can actually arrange installation.

Thanks
