Anyone interested in a 2011 Forest River Owners Rally?

I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in having a group rally someplace in the middle of the US?

We have so many friends here and I'm sure we actually passed each other on the road to here or there.

Just want to put it out there and se what the general group thinks about it?

Any ideas of a large campground that has some nice grounds?

You know I think I may send an email to Forest River and maybe they would sponsor it. Maybe up in their neck of the woods. Does anyone have a good contact?

I would be interested, but will have to know more details, time, place, etc... Have to schedule the time off from work.

Just an idea, I haven't camped at any Arkansas State Parks, but hear they are nice and have FHU's with reasonable fees. That would be sort of middle USA.

I am definitely interested. My 2010 is booked solid, but 2011 is a possibility.

I agree that it would have to be in 2011.
I just like to hear from everyone who might consider making this rally. If we get enough folks interested we can move on to other subjects like below. It would be to meet everyone and their families as well as have fun for a few days.

Interested in 2011 Rally
1. Iggy, Surprise AZ, 2 people, 2011 Rockwood 8285WS
2. Grhodes50, OK 2009 Rockwood 8315SS
3. Grandpaofthree, OH, 2009 Rockwood 8313SS
4. Willie, Ventura CA, 2011 Wildwood 27BHSS




Questions need answering would be

1. How many would be interested in comeingto a 2 or 3 day event? Hopefully a minimum of 10 rigs would be nice.

2. Find a nice summer location that has great scenery, reasonable summer temps and low humidy during the summer.
How about Branson, MO?
How about San Diego on the coast?
Montana?

Here is a Link to Travel Life RV Campground Directory and ratings

3. Find a great campground that can handle all sizes of rigs that has nice spaces with trees and grass and not just pavement. Must be able to take reservations online or by phone in advance for a group. Preferable in the same area. Maybe a wagon wheel setup might work.

4. Get a few folks that are willing to help with arrangements, gathering names and information on everyone, setting up a time table of any activities, pot luck lunch or dinner, find out what elese is int he area, etc.


Anyother ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

We're interested....just like Grandpaof3, will have to be in 2011.
We live in California....

You're asking for pointers....San Diego is nice but crowded, Pismo Beach is nice and great access to beach, folks can bring their toys (big/small) for sand, pier is within walking distance and not to far from SF/LA....
Let us know!

My wife and I met in Santa Maria and Pismo beach is our old stomping grounds. I know many of the campgrounds there but if the group decides on Pismo we will have to look into finding a good campground.
The weather is great and mostly all the campgrounds are on the beach or close by.

I also like San Diego specifically Chula Vista at the marina campground.
I will add you to the list for a possible go 2011.

Thanks

Iggy,

what a coincidence...Glad you're familiar with PB.
I thought of it because we just went there early this summer as a first trip with our (then) new TT. I have 3 kids (12,3 &1) plus we took a couple more little friends. They all had a great time at the Pismo Coast Village Resort. It's pretty big and I noticed all sorts of rigs (small/big). weather was nice and views were awesome...I'm sure you know. Lots of things to do for everyone there, swiming pools, gathering areas... here is the link;
Pismo Coast Village RV Resort


We are also not bias to California, We went to Zion (Utah) in June and that place was awesome too. -grassy areas and lots to do.

Pismo Coast Village Resort is the one we always use. Best one I know unless you know any other there.

I guess this thread lost its spark. Seems most folks stay close to home and don't venture far. I will keep checking back to see if this idea is still being considered.


Just to throw some ideas out.
Time frame May 2011 someplace l warmer like Tuscon AZ, or San Antonio Texas comes to mind. No snow and nice temps.

Any suggestioned location for May 2011?
