HEY Rennie -- it's only a "few" hours further than Mayberry

Also, one of our RV dealers is busting it to get a Riverstone display unit at the Rally! You KNOW you want to see one

GREAT Idea!! The long range weather forecast says sunny, with daytime temps in the 70's and nighttime temps in the 50's - PERFECT Campfire weather!!


I spoke with Donna at the Campground today and the whole staff is SUPER excited about BamaGanza, and can't wait for the rally to begin!

Anne-Marie and I will be on site by noon this Sunday so if anyone wants to jump the gun and come a day or two earlier, come on down!

Campground Update:

As of today we have SOLD OUT THE CAMPGROUND!


Donna said there are 1 maybe 2 water/electric sites left, but all Full Hookup sites are booked! There is a central dump station, so if you are reading this and thinking you may want to attend, give the Noccalula Falls Campground at: 256-543-7412 and tell them you are with the FROG Rally!

looking forward to our very first FROG rally and anxious to meet other frogs
