OK..PondLady! We are getting things rolling here.

Has anyone stayed in Branson and like any RV Resort?
If not I could make a phone call to the ABC one Mike mentioned and see if they woudl reserve a section of the park for a small group.



I would think a good day to checkin would be a Sunday as many are leaving after a weekend.
May 1st 2011 falls on a Sunday.

Just a question on what days everyone would like.

1. Everything 3 nights would be ok?

2. Arrival on Sunday May 1st?

3. Or what?

pondlady 09-05-2010 06:44 PM

May 1 is great. 3 nights is great. And we are certainly open to any other dates.

May 1st works for me. I would call and see what the campground would offer us. We can always search and see if other places are available. looks like the sites are 20.00 per night until May 8th

I just sent off an email asking America's Best Campground in Branson MO if they can handle a group of 15 to 20 campers arrriving on Sunday May 1, 2011 and leaving Wednesday May 4, 2011.
Address 499 Buena Vista Rd Branson, MO 65616

I asked them what the final price be for 3 days including all taxes.
It seem to be a nice well maintained campground with pull-thrus and backins for all trailers and motorhomes. 30 and 50 Amp service, water and sewer. Free wifi and lots of things for the kids. They give discounts for Good Sams and Vets.
They also tell about all the shows they have in Branson which is the great attractions.

If you want to read more about the campground go to their website.
Branson Missouri Camping/Campground/RV Park/Cabins/Show Tickets/Wi-Fi/Good Sam


If this goes as planned I will block a group of sites hopefully together and everyone will call the reservations phone number and speak with a specific person and give a secret group name code.

I will keep you posted.
If you have any questions please email me directly or leave my a Personal Message (PM ) message on the board.:thumbsup:

Wow, John. You did great. You remind me of my Uncle Harry who organized the UAW back in the 30's. And no one has attacked you with chains.....yet.
:thumbsup:

May 1st sounds great. The only draw back for us will be our work. As long as nothing comes up neither my wife or I should have any problems getting the time off.

One other thing. If we arrive on Sunday and leave Thursday, isn't that 4 nights, not 3? Either way is OK with us since we'll be taking the whole week off.

You are correct that is 4 nights. I will correct to 3 nights.

Been To Branson with RV
 
Was in Branson with RV eight years ago to a Navy reunion. Enjoyed all activities we attended. Can't remember the RV parks name, but was right in the city. Awful tight and small spaces even for my 26' TT. I will have to reasearch my reacords for the name of CG. There were better and larger CG on the outskirts of the city.

The time and dates would be great. Would be in line with the Tulip Festival in Holland, Mich.


Count me in.

John, you are not old. My Uncle Harry was old. So am I. But you are not old. Nope. :D

OK I have you down as a yes. The All American Campground has large spaces. I will let everyone know why I get a reply from them. I fnot I may need to follow up with a phone call and see what they say.

I will be on the road and out of touch from Sept 8 -18 so you may not hear from me until I get back.

youroo 09-06-2010 08:21 AM

Depends on what's going on at that time. We'll have to look at the dates and go from there. :)

Update....
I just received this email back from American Best Campground in Branson MO.

**************************************
My name is Michelle Ward and I am the Groups Coordinator here at America's Best Campground. Thank you for your interest in bringing your group here to ABC and we would love to host your rally.

We currently have availability for May 1-4, 2011. If you would give me a call we can work out all the details and get your contract set up.

At this point if you set this group up to pay with one payment the price is $26.00. If you all pay individually it is $27.50 This price is good until the end of the year, so if you set this up now, I can guarantee that rate. The owner has discussed raising the rates for next year, but hasn't said to what.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Michelle Ward
Groups Coordinator
America's Best Campground
Direct Line 417-336-4399
Fax Line 417-336-6581
******************************************

I know this is really early but I think everyone that wants to go need to understand that this place is busy and everyone should make their own reservations ASAP.
$27.50 per day is really a great price for a full hookup. (Reg $35.00 )

When we finalize everything I will let you know when to call.
It will be for 3 nights - arriving Sunday May 1 and leaving on Thursday May 4, 2011
We need a group name... " 1st Annual Forest River Forum Rally".
That is if is OK with the powers here and they don't objection.


Does this sound ok or should we use another name?

I think the best thing is for anyone willing to commit at this point

I also think we should have a cutoff date of Decemebr 1, 2010 if you want to go.
That way it won;t drag on and on. It will also give people time to setup the days off.

Let's chat about all this first.


The_Stuff 09-06-2010 02:25 PM

I have some buddies in Springfield, mo but i doubt i could get the time off for me and the miss and haul 1100 miles for 3 nights.


All times are GMT -5. The time now is 04:17 PM.
