Alabama BamaGanza October 15-18 2015

Soooooo....over lunch today I drafted and sent a email to the Gadsden director of parks and recreation asking about Noccalula Falls Park. Turns out this is a county park, so we will see what their requirement are.

As we grow past a "Home Grown" FROG event and move toward a rally that could potentially have 100+ attendees we MAY need to take advance reservations (the park may require a non-refundable deposit and/or other funds in order to secure our rally site.

I have tentatively set the rally dates for 9-12 October (Columbus Day Weekend) I say tentatively, because we may already be too late - the park may already be reserved for that weekend.

I will post to the list when I hear back from the Parks Director. Additionally, I will post the the email list I developed for last years BamaGanza.

Anne-Marie and I have a a fair amount of experience running large camping events and the one thing we DO know is many hands make light work 😉so it's time for ya'll to look at your calendar and, if you plan to attend, consider volunteering to help with the Rally. Off the top of my head, here are some positions that will need to be filled:

RV Vendor liaison (contact RV dealers in area for door prizes and possible demos)
Registration desk assistance
Parking coordinator
BBQ side dish coordinator
Nightly pot luck coordinator

Regarding the BBQ and Pot Luck coordinator - Forest River corporate will provide us the meats and fixin's for our Saturday night BBQ. The side dish coordinator will keep track of who is bringing what 👮

It occurred to me that if we are gonna camp over several nights together, we might as well coordinate nightly pot lucks rather than hiding out in our rigs like hermits and eating supper alone. The pot luck coordinator will track who is bringing what to the Friday & Sunday potlucks orrrrrr....do we want to have a group dinner at a local restaurant like we did last year? Whatever, that is the Potluck coordinator's job 😎

So there you have it- we are on a roll for October 2015 BamaGanza in Gadsden!

Bob,
Jim said he will be glad to help out with Parking coordinator and I will be happy with the registration desk assistance. We both will be more than happy to help.

BamaGanza '15 UPDATE!

We have a FIRM date for BamaGanga 15 now!

October 15-18 2015
Noccalula Falls Park, Gadsden AL


Rally cost: Paid directly to the Campground
30/50AMP/Water/Sewage/Cable: $63.51
30 AMP Water (Possibility of cable if you bring a long COAX): $48.39

We are being given a special Club rate of $21.17/day 50 AMP full hookup and $16.13/day 30 AMP/Water.

If you want to arrive early or stay late, these daily fees will apply.

WIFI Available throughout the camp included in site cost.

We will have 2 covered venues:

Haney Hall: Seats 70 indoors,
has a full kitchen with freezer, bathrooms and cable TV

Lighted Park Pavilion: Seats 100+ outdoors
has electricity and BBQ Grills.

The park has a laundry and shower facility.

I had a long and pleasant phone call with the the camp director, Kaila Fair this afternoon. We have made plans for Anne-Marie to visit the park soon

Once we make a site visit, I will post photos for everyone to view.

Of course, Forest River will provide us with our Saturday Night BBQ, and we already have Jamie at Bankston Motor Homes offering door prizes and a meal sponsorship plus there is a bunch of stuff to do in Gadsden so I am confident this will be a GREAT rally to attend!!

(AND I really AM serious about trying to get us a tour of the Goodyear Tire plant if there is enough interest!)
