Will appreciate your information and looking forward to the rally." To date I have had no response. Is this typical? Brand new to Forest River and this forum as well as FROG and finding the lack of response discouraging.
Big Lou, first welcome to Forest River and to FROG! I apologize if I missed getting a reply out to your e-mail.
We'll be posting a list of activities with the Rally registration form. We're looking at a couple of possible tours -- one to Auburn, IN to the Auburn / Cord / Duesenberg Museum, possibly one to Amish Acres for an Amish Thresher Dinner and a play at the Round Barn Theater on a night when we don't have dinner planned, possibly a revisit of the Amish Backroads Tour that was so popular last time. Transportation will be included in these, as well as in the factory tours. There are some plants that can't physically accomodate large tours, so some attendees arranged individual tours and drove themselves to these, and that will be possiible again this year.
There will be advance signups for the tours, as well as for service at the rally so that the service folks can get a jump on stockpiling required parts and making sure that the right folks are available from both our plants and, where needed, from component suppliers.
We're plannng to extend the Rally by either one or two nights, starting on Sunday and ending on Saturday night. There will still be dinners on most nights, breakfast most mornings, and live entertainment, along with factory service, an RV display, seminars, and a vendor area.
We're on the road right now in St. Louis, then on to Florida for the "Kick Back and Relax" Rally and the Tampa RV Super Show. We're also doing some FROG dinners in the St. Louis, Tampa, and Atlanta areas. E-mails will be going out on those shortly.
We're still working on the rally while on the road, and will be posting the details as quickly as we can.
And, John, thanks for the kind words. We did have a good time, didn't we?
