What a great looking crew we were. Sure wish we all could make it in Goshen for the 2015 Rally. Really miss seeing Nigel and Bev the real cause of our FIRST INTERNATIONAL Frog Rally. Hopefully FROG Bob can get us all in the same neighborhood this year.

Sorry to burst your bubble Iggy but I don't believe your list is correct. I think Walke was forced to cancel and the Canadians that were there were Old Guys and BandFLemon. I also think there was a couple possibly from California beside us and I will try to find their name in some old records if I can. I think the original number was more like seventeen units. Also don't forget we had the pleasure of a rep from the stereo company in a cabin just to the rear of us. I will also try to get his name. When he had to leave early he graciously left us much liquid refreshment. All that being said, it is our plan right now to attend Goshen if possible. Old Guys P.S. We also hope to bring Carson.

Brian.....I also saw IGGY's note and according to my list of all 14 rigs plus Bob Fields from Concertone.....also confirmed by Don Breed here at our campout. Don and Shirley ..."THE KISSY LADY"...according to Carson ...Breed has an original spreadsheet from Iggy that matches my list, and 14 is the right number. I have sent a note to Iggy so that he can update his records.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Goshen in August.

Can't make it this year as we will be touring Wyoming in August. Had a great time in Branson and it was a pleasure to be part of the original 14.

Sorry Iggy. Looks like I was wrong too. The original group appears to have been 15 plus Bob Fields from Concertone. He and his wife were in Comets Cabin. The original list can be found in post #373, pg. 38 of the thread "Anyone interested in a 2011 Forest River Owners Rally?". Walke was unable to make it. Also there was no one from Cal. beside us. It was 52Dodgeman and I think they may have said they were going to California for family reasons. I found a list of the people and their campsites but it is names not user names so I won't post it here. Old Guys

Regardless of the original number of Branson attendees, I plan to be at the Goshen Rally as long as we still own a Forest River rig.

This is the list I have:

Iggy John and Di Arizona
Ibrjet Larry and Janice Indiana
52Dodgeman Richard and Candice Texas
mg0427 Michael and Robin MO
Itsthetwoofus George and Peggy MI
Bobfidy Bob and Nancy OK
Oakman Bob and Joyce MO
Tarheel Jerry and Ann NC
Bob Terry Bob and Terry OK
Nigel Nigel and Bev Portugal
OldGuys Brian and Joanne Canada
Budlemon Bud and Fran Canada
Popbreed Don and Shirley OK
rt8usps Randy and Georgia NE

And of course Bob Fields who was with Concertone at the time and stayed in a cabin at ABC.

I thought Walke had to cancel and I thought GeorgieGirl also had to cancel because of serious health issues in the family. Someone correct me if Im wrong.

Sorry you cant make it to Goshen Ibrjet, you will be missed.

Looks good Bob and that would account for the extra name on the site list that I apparently got from ABC if GeorgieGirl canceled at the last minute. Brian

Paula, it was a struggle to make it a party without you and Ken last year. I'm not sure we can pull that off twice in a row. Can't the two of you call in for some "illness and fatigue" time -- sick and tired of working?

Just tell them folks at work that FROG Bob said you need to be there.

I like that Sick & Tired of Working.....

That would be a first they have always tried to put brands together because of the service work. At Least that has been how the last 3 were....
