If some people are big eaters, that is fine. Over $500 to park on a fairground leaves money for a meal. 2 sandwich slices of meat is a fairly small meal.
The solution was to post a lady to watch how much food was being taken. We were ok but others weren't. Nice rally for repairs, but we left early and will not attend again.
Based on last yearís rally thereís a lot more to the rally than just camping at a fairgrounds for $500. BTW, you will get a minimum of 30 amp electric and water hookup. Along with the large number of meals that are provided, there are usually a couple of nights of included entertainment. Also you have the opportunity to visit some of the RV factories which includes free transportation to and from those factories. If you never seen how an RV is built this is a ďmust do.Ē
There are also quite a number of RV related seminars included with the price. You can learn a lot at those seminars. There will also be a vendor area with plenty of opportunity to buy ďgoodiesĒ for your RV and possibly win prizes.
Forest River will also set up an RV display with a wide variety RVís to tour. You will also have the opportunity to have your RV serviced by factory technicians. That alone is worth the entrance fee.
The single biggest benefit of attending the FROG International Rally is the chance to meet and make new RV friends. If you canít make new friends at this rally then thatís on you.
There are a lot more reasons to attend this rally but my arthritic fingers are getting sore so I think Iíve typed enough. Hopefully Iíll be lucky enough to get my registration in quickly enough that I can attend the rally.
