When does the reservation window for Goshen open and how long does it take to fill up? We are leaving on an Australia cruise the first week of March and are concerned the window may be closed by the time we return.

Rick, I'm working right now on the web page for the FROG Rally information and registration link. We're also in the middle of having the website completely redesigned by our corporate media department, and I'm trying to coordinate with them so that we don't end up making a change in the middle of registration. I still hope to hit our end of March target.

Ah yes, the road less traveled. Our ride to Goshen will take us through Boise, ID, Mt. Saint Helens, the CA Redwoods, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater, Mt. Rushmore, Suite Saint Marie and then finally Goshen.
No hurry for us.

Tom, that sounds like an amazing trip, but if you want to check a map, I can show you a more direct route from NC to IN. :D

My target for opening registration is the last week of March. Last year we closed registration the second week of May, the first time that we've ever had to do that.

We had dinner last week with a FROG couple coming through the area, and he told me that his guess is that registrations will fill in two weeks. I'm betting that it will take longer, but not a lot longer, and not a big bet.

Bob. You ever think about going to a spring and fall rally since the one is getting so big and fill up so quick?

There has been some conversation about that in-house. I can't rule it out, but the scope of it would probably change.

Mobilizing 300+ service technicians from our service centers, plants, and component suppliers is not a simple task, not to mention vendors, seminars, and the other features that go into the FROG Rally. And, as you might imagine, $425 for two people in an RV for the week didn't quite cover the costs of camping, meals, building rentals, and entertainment, not to mention the service activities and the ice cream. (Them Froggies can eat some ice cream! :eek: )

As I said, I can't rule it out, but don't put it on your calendar quite yet.

rmac04401 02-17-2016 11:17 AM

I won't. Just thought I'd put it out there!😄 we did enjoy Kissimmee!
