2018, Sept 7,8,9. The 7th Annual Algonac Glassic Egg Scramble

Rally Weekend - Fri Sept 7-Sun Sept 9.
Map is updated in this post!
Here is the link to the state park reservation site:
https://www.midnrreservations.com/
Agenda:
Friday night meet and greet at my site (63)
Saturday night pot luck at the Picnic Shelter 6:30-ish
Prize Draw - bring an unwrapped item, camping or otherwise and we will draw site numbers for prizes.
As always, lots of free time to visit and explore.
PotLuck Dinner Location - People voted for reserving Algonac's Picnic Shelter for Saturday's potluck (Sept 8) after we got drenched this past year (yikes). So last year before I checked out, I reserved the shelter.
The total cost was $108 including reservation fee.
Some of you pre-paid $5 each last year, thanks. We will collect from others this year at the rally. It was suggested that any extra money could be used to purchase paper plates, plastic ware, and napkins to reduce the amount of stuff that everyone needs to bring down to the pavilion. Once we have a head count, I can figure out how much extra we will have.
We have the shelter for the whole day, so we can also utilize it for other things as well.
Ideas - What if we hold a table sale / trade for our group? (we can't advertise or sell to the other campers). Maybe morning sometime (or dinner time?) If anyone wants to organize something, just let me know!

ALGONAC Glassic egg scramble

Thanks, Pam, for all the work you do to make this a success every year!! The Pavillion idea sounds great to me. Maybe we could shift our camp ground locations to the south end of the park in order to be closer to the Pavillion.

Its my pleasure, and I love camping with this group. With regards to the campsite locations, I had considered the south side of the park so I strolled around that end of the park. I have to say that it felt more crowded and noisy than the north end we are at. The restroom is also at least one street further back which would force many people who need proximity to park further from the water views. I'm sure we would still have to drive to the pavilion from the southern sites. But if enough people express interest in trying out the south end, we have time for discussions.

Those are good points, Pam. I hadn't thought of them.

What about the area just next to and south of the newer restroom building but not in the loop to the south?

Where is it located???

I read your post and we are eggheads and as we all know not the brightest. But where is your event taking place and do you have to be a member or what? We are trillium 4500 owners and spend our summers in Michigan and are looking for some places to go and enjoy with other eggs. >(*:*)<

Robert, the Annual Glassic Egg Scramble is open to all owners and fans of fiberglass eggs. All brands are welcome. You'll see other Trilliums in attendance. It is located at the Algonac State Park in Southeast MI. along the St Clair River. It's a great place for watching freighters from around the world. Canada is on the other side of the river, and many of the attendees hail from there. If you decide to join us, the group congregates on the sites near the river on the north end of the park. Reservations can be made 6 months in advance. More info will be coming. It's a good time for all. Hope to see you there!

Tom

Hello Algonac Peeps! I know that its still cold and snowy here in Michigan, and the river views are a bit 'frosty'. BUT spring is just around the corner! And so is the 6 month (march) reservation date for Algonac. If you want a special site, be ready 6 months out at 8am when the reservation link is activated. I'm calculating out March 9 (Friday) to reserve for Friday Sep 7. Move the date up accordingly to stay longer!

There have been some discussions about possibly shifting to the south end of the park to camp. For this year, I'd like to 'hold' to our northern location for and then while we are camping this fall, lets take a close look at the south end so we can decide as a group if we want to make any changes. I'd welcome other input as well.

Here's the Michigan State Park reservation link (also the first post in this thread) https://www.midnrreservations.com/

Dang has it been 7 years. How time flies when you doing camper maintenance and "field testing". On the 6 month point from start of reservation or end of reservation? I forget. Mostly I don't stay in those high falutin places where they have reservations and all that. :-)


New addition to our family this year. Another Schnauzer joined the clan. I wanted to name her Demon Spawn but Cheryl held out for Binka. But "you evil monkey" gets added by both of us from time to time.
