Wish we could make it but we do not come back down to Florida until the end of September for the winter. Maybe another time.

I am sorry you can't make it. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to schedule rallys from fall through spring due to snowbirds descending on the state. They grab up the sites and we have a hard time finding places to camp during our beautiful weather months.

Plans are starting to come together! I still have not heard from Bob with F.R.O.G about help with catering costs. I am sure he is crazy busy with the Goshen Rally at this point. If we cannot have monetary assistance from them, is everyone o.k. with paying for the catered meal? I have not gotten any prices, but have started looking to see what is available in the area. I am trying to line up a band for entertainment on Friday or Saturday evening. It will depend on when the band can come. They do not charge anything other than food and drinks. They play a variety of music, especially tunes from the 50's, 60's, 70's, an up, so I think most will enjoy the music.

Here is the potential schedule. Please give me input about whether this suits your wants and desires or not. We can do more or less. This is a jumping off point.

Thursday - Meet and Greet -- 8:00 until... BYOB/soft drinks and an appetizer to share. Will have an icebreaker game and possibly more games, depending on the desires of the group.

Friday - Catered Meal. Hopefully live band music either Friday or Saturday evening.

Saturday - Pot Luck Dinner. Hopefully live band music either Friday or Saturday evening.

Does anyone want a pot luck breakfast or lunch sometimes during the weekend?

We can have a time to get together to do hand work or crafts, if anyone is interested. We can plan a day trip Friday or Saturday afternoon, if interested.

Invite others, even if they do not own a Forest River product. Tri-Am RV from Ocala will have several units there for us to tour. Also, is anyone interested in having an Open House, where others can tour your unit?

Please start giving me feedback so I can be sure to have activities that folks are interested in. I have never been to a Rally, let alone organized one.

Sheryl

Sheryl, we are fine with paying what's needed for catering or fun. We can also arrive early to do things or welcome arrivals. Let us know what might be needed. Great job!!

I vote for live band on Saturday (& would be happy to pay for catered meal if on Saturday as we won't be there Friday). Always feel it is better to camp & miss Monday rather than Friday ;-).


Suggestion on pot luck .... we always have a huge chili 'cookoff' at one of the music festivals we go to ...everyone brings a crock pot full & their own spoon & bowl ... Can either vote with everyone by ticket or simply first empty crock pot wins ....

Thanks for the response, Jerry and Life Without Whine. Hopefully the band will be able to play, but I am letting them decide which night is best for them. We can certainly plan to have the catered meal on the evening they play (assuming they can make it), but I thought it might be best to have the catered meal first. In reality, it probably does not matter. A chili cook off sounds like fun. Will it still be too hot to really enjoy chili though? I guess not if we have other options, such as salad. We could also have a contest for breads that go along with chili, such as corn bread, rolls, etc. if folks are interested. Thanks for the ideas! Keep 'em coming!

Catered meal

We will be happy to pay for the catered meal, and to bring something for a Pot luck meal as well. Music any time is all good.
As newbies, we are looking forward to gaining any and all info, tips, and advice you all can provide. Maybe a Q&A session, or something similar. Might be a little warm still for chili, but good chili just calls for more cold drinks!
We are planning to be there Thursday, if we can help, will be glad to do whatever.
Thanks, Robert & Ann

Have a great trip to Goshen! We will be anxious to hear about your trip. I'm so glad you will be able to join us in September. It will give us all a chance to meet fellow campers and hopefully form some friendships.
