This will be our first "International" rally with Forest River, yet we picked up our 5'er in Shipshewana in October and really enjoyed touring the town and visiting the flea market (which was getting read to close for the winter), great fun. Check out the website Official Shipshewana Website - Info for Shipshewana Events, Shops, Restaurants, Attractions and more | Shipshewana Amish Country for more info. I understand that there is a horse auction some weeks at the flea market, which might be fun to see too.

Can't wait for the Rally!

Thanks to all who have replied to our post so far. Doesn't seem like anyone has the schedule to help us know which optional tours may conflict with really great presentations at the fairgrounds. We see the optional tour schedule and the general list of planned activities on the FROG website, but so far no way to coordinate the two. We may have to just take a leap and hope for the best; pun intended.

Will there be activities like "pot Luck" etc?

DW wants to know about what to bring.
Cooking for 300 is a little different than for two.

I like your priorities there Lou. As my wifes always says " A way to a man's heart , is through his belly".

The Goshen rally is still over two and a half months away so the schedule of seminars probably isnít set yet. For that matter they may not have all the presenters lined up yet.

Last year many of the seminars had more than one presentation so just about everyone had the opportunity to attend those they were interested in. I wouldnít hold off signing up for the optional tours since there will probably be a limited number of spots available.

This our first rally we've gone to like this. Now I'm worried that I opt'd for 4 tours and will we miss other things that would be just as fun. I've read alot of the doings that are happenings including Phat Phrog Stunt Crew plans. I guess it is a week of winging it.

Here's a link to some of the things that you might want to consider in and around Goshen while you're in the area:

Things to do in Metropolitan Goshen:

During the week at the fairgrounds, there will be meals most evenings (Sun, Mon, Wed, and Fri) and every morning (Mon-Sat). These will be full meals -- as Mom used to say, "If you leave hungry, it;s your own darn fault." There will be entertainment after dinner on Mon, Wed, and Fri.

We're working right now on a schedule of seminars, particularly early in the week. There will be a vendor area and an RV display going on through most of the week. The current plan is to have at least double the number of service techs that we had last year -- we worked those poor guys half to death.

There will be two days of plant tours, and a third if necessary, most likely on Tue, Wed, and, if needed, Thu. The optional tours are being scheduled Tue, Wed, Thu, and Fri. We're taking a unique approach to an ice cream social.

I understand that the Phat Phrog Stunt Team has offered to help with the demolition of the bridge. Fortunately, cooler heads prevailed.

Finally, I noticed some comments about the RV/MH Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. The RV/MH Hall of Fame has an RV show going on late in the week, so we chose not to go there because of the traffic mess and admission issues to the show. The Hall will be open during the show, but there might be a show admission in addition to the Hall admission. The College Football Hall of Fame closed last year and is being moved to Atlanta. The Studebaker Museum, also located in South Bend, is alive and well.

Just what we need

Thanks, Bob! Now I feel a little more confident about making tour plans.

Goshen

If you have the chance, you should tour the Rockwood/Flagstaff plant where they make the signature ultralights. We have been ther twice and enjoyed both.

This is high on my list of "things to do" as well.

Thanks for the info Bob.

I think ppstc is planning demo of bridge regardless of what those engineers say.

All in on Ice cream social twist!
