Elkhart county fair 2017
 
According to google the Elkhart county fair ends on Saturday July 29 in 2017.
Unless we switch venues the earliest we could start the rally would be Sunday August 13 as it is my understanding they need a week to clean up the fairgrounds then a week to get parking registrations volunteers trained and in place.
If they switch venues then all bets are off. Frankly I doubt that will happen,there are too many processes and routines in place for the fairgrounds. You would need to start over in a new venue. Logistically it would be extremely complicated.

RKNOLA 09-02-2016 12:23 PM

So what about May or June? Does the 2017 rally HAVE to follow the county fair??? June would help those folks that had to miss the 2016 rally due to kids school schedules.
Just wondering............

SilverbackMel 09-02-2016 12:51 PM

I DOUBT VERY SERIOUSLY if any date modifications will happen.
WHY? because MAY/JUNE are PEAK build outs of ordered units. FR spends a lot of $$$ to make this event happen. Even MORE IMPORTANT:
lines are shut down to allow personnel to "field repair" ( and are they bz!)
The Fairground holds the number of units that maximizes the performance
levels FR achieves.
If you have ever been to that area of Indiana, you would experience the LACK of RV site availability for numbers like 800 or 1,000 units !!
WOW!!

Herk7769 09-02-2016 01:29 PM

FYI - The fairgrounds has the largest area of RV parking, most likely, anywhere (except for no hookups places at all like the desert Southwest); certainly within any kind of commute for the service technicians.

Gotcha, that makes sense. Thanks for the response. August it is!!

School schedules can vary in different areas. I work at a high school and our school year started around 10th and will end a couple of days into June.

There's consideration of various factors that goes into planning the big rally. For me the August date range will not work but I do understand. Maybe some day they will change the start of the school year back to after Labor Day but I'm not going to count on it.

You know when I grew up it was always started after Labor Day, Terier why did they make that change, families lose almost a month of summer to spend with there kids, I never understood that..:eek:
