What to Expect at Goshen?

We are new to FROG and Goshen will be our first large gathering. We've been registered for several months and seen the list of optional day trips which sound great. Now what we'd like to know (so we can make informed choices) is what will be happening at the fairgrounds? If anyone has access to this year's schedule or can post last year's it would help us decide which or how many of the day trips to choose. We don't want to miss anything!

Newbies Also!

We were wondering the same thing - are there any tours included already, like factory tours or anything?

Welcome new FROG's! Glad to hear you are going to Goshen too! I am looking forward to knowing what may be going on during the day around the camp as well. We won't be doing any of the tours because we will be bringing our Harley to ride during the day.....but just in case we do spend the day at the campground, it would be nice to know what is going on!

New stuff for me too. Never been to a rally before.

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.

We have breakfast and most dinners as a group, lunches are on your own. There will be seminars, new models to tour and time to do your own thing. We will be going to the big flea market in Shiawassee (I think that that is the name). You will be so busy you will wonder where the week went. You can do as much or as little as you want.

Here's a thought ladies and gentlemen, let's leave this thread for legitimate questions about the rally. There are already two other threads about the rally that have hundreds of posts that have little or no information concerning the rally.

I was looking at the optional tours that will be available for the 2013 rally and I don't see where any of them include a trip the RV Hall of Fame. I hope Bob (F.R.O.G.) will correct me if I am wrong about that. Regardless, for anyone visiting Goshen, the RV Hall of Fame is a "must do."

The factory tours last year were great and Forest River provided transportation to the factories. After visiting the Cedar Creek factory last year I knew I had made the right choice in choosing our Silverback.

During the rally there were quite a few seminars. My favorite was Mac the Fire Guy, but I was disappointed that I wasn't chosen to put out the fire.

The breakfasts and dinners that were provided to rally attendees last year were excellent. We also had three nights of excellent entertainment at last year's rally.

Forest River also had quite a few of their RVs on display at the Elkhart fairground. I drooled over a Trilogy that was on display and the Aviator drew a lot of positive comments from folks.

If you can only do one rally, this is the one to attend. It defines the word bargain.

Bob

Last year we did not find any of the planned tours to suit us so we did our own trip to the RV Hall of Fame and Museum and then over to South Bend to see Notre Dame and the College Football Hall of Fame.
Another afternoon we went and toured an Amish furniture factory that had made our dining room set 2 years ago.
Also for nights when meals were not provided a group of us got together and went to dinner at a couple of the GREAT Amish Restaurants in the area.
Besides the RV Show there was an area where vendors were selling their wares that was good time spent.
Another thought is talk to new folks. We found a "young" man who was from our hometown and he had graduated from the same high school.....1 year earlier. Also met some fine folks who were from Mars, PA.....the town that one of the ships that I was on WAY back in the 60's was named after. You never know who you might find next.
Come with an open mind and get ready for an adventure.
