Thumbs up

Could someone tell me what makes the difference between a Rally, Gathering, Get-together, Molded Meet, (and etc)?
I notice some folks seem to make the distinction between one or another (i.e. "NOT a Rally!") and others use the names interchangeably.

I'm thinkin' there's no difference. It's just like-minded people who are organized enough to pick a date and a place to meet. The name of the event is just to identify it among the bunch. The only ones I have problems with are the ones with a trailer brand in the title, like ScampCamp or CasitaGathering. Makes me wonder if the organizers would welcome other brands or are trying to be exclusive. If they are trying for all one brand, they don't know what they're missing out on!

I think "rally" implies big and organized, whereas "get-together" implies small and informal. The Oregon "gathering" has become big (very big), and from what I hear, also very well organized, so the terms are inexact.

Molded meets are exclusively for molded RVs, of course.

I don't know about the Casita gatherings, but I'm told that the Scamp Camps are open to anyone with a molded FGRV, and they frequently have other brands attend. The Bigfoot Owner's Club International, OTOH, requires Bigfoot ownership to continue membership. That said, Ric Allen the founder and past president, showed up this year in his Prevost but managed to redeem himself by ordering a new Bigfoot MoHo while he was there. In his defense, he had a 25RQ up until the week of the rally, and it sold.

In late January, 1999, eight Scamp Owners happen to meet at Highlands Hammock State Park in southern Florida near Sebring. After spending several days chatting about experiences in traveling with our Scamps , this small group decided to try publishing a newsletter for Scamp owners (and others who own little "eggs"). That following May the first issue of the SOI News was mailed out to about thirty Scamp owners. Thus, Scamp Owners International (SOI) was born! From this small beginning, SOI now has several hundred members.
The name Scamp Camp just sounded catchy and cought on . And they are published in our newsletter We have been to 11 of them so far[ Not all called Scamp camps] and have never had a bad experince. Never been to one that has had all scamps and the non scamps seem to get more attention. You allways get a great group of people with similar thoughts of what camping should be. You can belong to S.O.I. with or even without a trailer. Soanything goes Even have a stick built once and a while.

I stole this title (thanks Gina) to convey that while I would be interested in camping in a group of Fiberglass Enthusiasts, and we would enjoy each other's company, I am not an "Organization Man", and have not set a schedule, or organized a potluck. I won't even know exactly where it is until I show up.

I have attended 2 "Oregon Gatherings" which are extremely popular, well attended, and they have to be organized, scheduled, and managed to accomodate the large numbers of persons and animals attending. Nancy and Donna and others put in huge amounts of time and effort to make the time spent there rewarding, and their efforts are to be commended!

I always think of a "rally" as the extravaganza that Good Sam puts on complete with lots of commercial vendors. Our fiberglass gatherings, whatever they may be called, are the best, but it is thepeoplethat make the event!

In my way of thinking, 'gathering' and 'get-together' sound more casual than 'rally'. 'Rally' conjurs up hs memories of weekend car rallies, racing from one clue/landmark to another . Like anything else that involves planning, organizing and scheduling, my hat is off to everyone that works hard at putting together such big events .
Now, for what it's worth ( ) I still think it would be fun to call a meet with all different kinds of eggs a...'scramble' (OK, I better go get coffee...signing on before that first cup can be dangerous... )
