Updates and Announcements of More FROG Events

There is SO much going on and about to be formally announced that we’d better get you updated.

As I think everyone knows, there are a lot of activities scheduled for the spring and summer. Information on these is available on the FROG website, www.forestriverfrog.com, under the “Events & Calendar” link. Some of the events are being organized locally, and there are instructions on how to go about getting in on those. Those that are being organized by the FROG office generally have a registration form online.

There are several additional trips coming up in the fall that are currently in the planning stages. We’ve posted those on the “Events and Calendar” link as well, but we want to get all of you in the loop.
To recap (and announce) what’s coming up:

April 2 – April 7
Cherry Blossom Festival Washington, DC. (This event is filled.)

April 10 – April 14
Oklahoma FROG Campout, Natural Falls State Park, Siloam Springs, OK. Call the park to make reservations, and call Bob and Nancy Schorfheide to let them know you’re coming. Contact information is on the FROG website.

April 18 – 21
Florida Spring Fling, Tropical Palms Resort, Kissimmee, FL. Call the park to make reservations, and e-mail Rick and Deb Smith to let them know you’re coming. Contact information is on the FROG website.

April 26 – 28

June 25 – June 30

June 30 – July 5
Fireworks Over the Falls, Bissell’s Hideaway Resort, Niagara Falls, ON. (This event is filled.)

August 4 – August 10

The following four events are just now being announced. They will be set up as individual events, but you’ll get a discount be participating in two or more.

August 18 – August 23
Rocky Mountain High, Colorado Springs, CO. Details to be announced.

August 25 - 29
Purple Mountains Majesty, Grand Teton National Park, Jackson, WY. Details to be announced.

Wow! You & Cindy sure won't be letting any grass grow under your feet. Don't you need an assistant?

I might need someone to help me figure out where the heck I am. One of our daughters used to travel extensively for her job, and she'd joke that she had to go the the hotel lobby and pick up a newspaper to remember where she was some days. She hated USA Today! It was no help at all.

Wow, you’re working on some awesome post-Goshen rallies Bob.
Joyce and I plan to attend the Rocky Mountain High rally and my checkbook is at the ready. Unfortunately we already have reservations at Colter Bay Village in GTNP and Grizzly RV Park during the same time frame as the Purple Mountains Majesty and the Geysers and Grizzlies rallies. Perhaps we will bump into the group at one of the features or attractions in those parks.

Bob, our reservations at Grand Teton are also at Colter Bay, right on the shore of Jackson Lake. At West Yellowstone we'll be at Lion's Head, about 6 miles to the west. Grizzly had another group and couldn't handle ours.

We have reservations at Mountaindale for the Colorado Springs portion of the tour, and at Rafter J Bar in the Black Hills.

I love Mountaindale. It is centrally located between Colorado Springs and Canon City. We were given Site 35 which is a beautifully terraced site. Bob and I would sit out each evening and watch the mule deer move thru the trees into the park. I can't wait to go back.

Petunia, you and Oakman and Cindy and I talked about Mountaindale and Garden of the Gods over lunch at the Blue Owl a few months ago. It turned out that the two we were considering were also two of your favorites.

You know how to pick your campgrounds Bob, when we visited Mount Rushmore we stayed at the Horse Thief Campground. While we were there we drove through the Rafter J Bar campground and I thought it was much better than Horse Thief.

I’m not familiar with the Lions Head RV Park in West Yellowstone, it certainly looks like a great place to use as a base for visiting Yellowstone. There’s no doubt that Joyce and I will have to check out that RV park so don’t be surprised if you get a knock on your door some evening. Don’t worry we’ll call to let you know we’re coming so you can disappear before we arrive.
