Has anyone given thought to rental power (generators) that will provide peak-power (3:00 - 8:00 pm daily) ????? Inquisitive minds . . . .

I would also make sure you have a surge guard to help protect your investment.

Are you cutting off all registration or just any more rigs? I may or may not need to add an extra person but won't know for sure until shortly before the rally (like end of July kind of shortly).

Jeez, thatís a lot of RVs. The growth rate of this rally is incredible considering the first Goshen rally was just a few years ago in 2012.

Thanks Frog Bob, Herk and all the rest for your thoughtful replies. We will arrive with extension + surge/voltage regulator and hope that all the planning meets the challenges placed on the rally location & staff by all these rigs. One item I overlooked is the fact that not all rigs have the same power requirements, thank goodness for that one! Hope to meet many of you and share some of the awesome lifestyle stories with ya in Goshen come August.

Travel safe & enjoy the journeys!


Mikey

Not sure if I saw them, Scott. We're currently going over the 500+ replies that we got to the verification e-mail that we sent out on 5/4, so it might be there. I'll call you.

We just put the following notice on the FROG website:


NOTICE - REGARDING 2015 INTERNATIONAL RALLY

The overwhelming record response to the 2015 FROG Rally has completely filled the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds. As a result, we have had to suspend further registrations while we explore the possibility of obtaining additional electrical service.


Should we be able to expand the utilities, we will re-open registration. We apologize for any inconvenience.
