Need to clarify about I35 RV park.
They do take credit cards.
If you make online reservations there is no Good Sam or other discount, park has to pay the people who manage the online reservation system.
If you come to the park and get a site, the cost is less, plus Good Sam, etc is honored.
I failed to ask about a group discount rate today - and if rigs can be grouped together, I will do that.
Right now we have 7 rigs, with several others hoping to join.
.
I hope to talk to Bob at FROG tomorrow.
.
I will be out of pocket (no internet) from 4pm on Wednesday Nov 4 until midday Sunday Nov 8th.
Laura

Hi guys,
We are back from our internet free trip.
I think in the interest of knowing for certain we will have a place to camp, we need to move this campout to I35 Waco RV park.
I apologize because the cost/night is significantly increased, and we will be right on the highway and get all the noise from that, but the uncertainty of the COE park is unnerving.
With that said, I encourage you not to cancel your reservation until the last day because I truly believe they will cancel it and NRS (National Reservation services) will refund all of the money.
From NRS website:
cancellation policy:
"Individual Campsites If you cancel an individual campsite reservation on the day before or on your scheduled arrival date, a $10.00 service fee will be charged and you will also forfeit the first nights use fee."
.
Anyway,
I have been talking to Austin at the I35 RV park and he said he would put us all together, no problem. To use the Rally Room for free, we need 10 rigs, otherwise he is going to charge us the cost of the number of rigs missing to use it. So if we have 8 rigs, it will cost us 2 x 30 = $60 to use the rally room. For us all: to get the 10 % group discount we need 10 rigs, right now we have 7. However, if you make a reservation online, he cant give the 10% discount because that is what the internet reservation company charges him, so he cant lose 20% on campsite.
If you reserve online and then call him, tell him you are with FROG and he will mark it down.
Or you can just show up and get the Good Sam discount. He swears he never fills up, but I get a little nervous without a reservation. I will leave all that up to you all,
just please let me know what you decide about this campout.
.
FYI
Texas is playing Baylor that Saturday, so that will likely increase the traffic at the park that weekend. It will certainly make getting around in Waco on Saturday unpleasant - of that I am certain. Game time has not been set yet.
.
I spoke to Bob at FROG on Tuesday Nov 3rd, and he told me we may be able to have a catered dinner afterall, it depends on what I can find in town.
We can have a potluck on Friday night and possibly catered on Saturday.
I dont have any other news, please just be in touch, so I can keep up with how many we have coming, I need to know that for calling the local restaurants.
Hope you all are having a FROGgy week!
Laura

So is this a definite move or only if the Waco Park is not open?

Cheryl,
I can call the COE again tomorrow,
but we are expecting another several inches Monday/Tuesday,
and had several inches last week and about 12 over the 2 weeks before that......
doesnt look good for park cleanup.

Right now I am only aware of 3 rigs confirmed at I35 RV, Dec 2-6 or Dec 4-6.
JKaspar20, SBransom, RW STanley, and ourselves.

Who is planning to be at I35 RV park?
Thanks in advance.
Laura

Just got cancellation e mail from reservation.gov.
Made phone call to I 35 Have a site reservered for campout. I suggest , if your coming to call an reserve site. As Laura previously posted.
I35 will try to keep us in a group an we use rally room for free if we have 10 units. Also, free breakfast every morning, which is good cause we've been there before.
See ya there

called at 11:30 today to make reservations. Austin not there. Josh said he makes reservations. Bottom line: he wants Laura to contact him @254-829-0698. he would prefer to have the rvers drive in and pay when they arrive. Told me not to make online reservations because it was difficult to make the adjustment. He couldn't find any notes referencing our group. If I messed up by calling to make reservations -- SORRY. Bill and I (Pamela) are planning on coming Dec 2-7 (an extra day).
