Not a lot of action since everyone is in full hookups.

Just a reminder that all the hookups are in the rear of the sites. Make sure you have enough hoses and cables to get to the connections.

Also, the first camper in should put a Y (or manifold) on the water tap so others can hook up without shutting off your water.

Get ready to RALLY!

First year for us. Our time, right now, leading up to arriving in Elkhart is dealing with our Daughter at Iowa State and then spending time in Michigan with Family.

We actually can't wait to get to Elkhart to meet our fellow Forest River Owners.

So two sites share one spigot? Haven't seen that one yet.

The 400 area has back to back sites that share a spigot.

The some of the Maple Street along the fence sites need to share a spigot.
The others are on a 4 outlet Hydrant every 4 campers.

The 200s area (R-Pod, XLR, and Cedar Creek) won't need to share a spigot because we are only using single row parking. If you ain't one of them, bring a hose Y.

Just sayin'

Most folks were not in full hookups then and had to share a 4 tap PVC Hydrant with 4 hydrants on a single hose. In this case 16 campers shared a single spigot.

Smart campers on those runs filled their fresh water tanks and left the water pump on so there would be no surprises when showering.

Thanks for the reminder. That's the date. Just need to update the signature block. I've been enjoying my 33DS on the road since then.

We are sorry to have to announce that the
2020 FROG International Rally is cancelled.

Throughout all of our planning and preparation, we have closely monitored the COVID-19 situation, not only in Indiana and in Elkhart County, but in many of the 30 states from which we have members registered for the FROG Rally.

The latest information that we have reviewed suggests that there is still a substantial risk of transmission from having so many people come gather from affected areas and then return home. In addition, a significant number of states are imposing quarantines on residents returning home from certain other states, including Indiana.

As a result, despite all of our efforts and multiple precautions to comply with the requirements and recommendations of our local health department, we have made the difficult decision that the risk continues to be too substantial to proceed with the FROG Rally.

We will begin the process of making full refunds to our members and our vendors.

The safety of our FROG members, our employees, our vendors, and everyone else involved in putting on the FROG Rally must continue to be our top priority. We appreciate your understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience.

I know that Bob and everyone else did what they could, but considering what they were faced with, they had little choice. This still sucks. I think the panic is doing more damage to the functioning of this nation than the disease is.

I hope that everyone who got a spot this year is ensured one next year, if they want it.

Mrs. eye and eye want a spot in 2021. Heck, you can even keep our payment this year as a downpayment to hold a spot for next yearís rally.
