1st Annual Manitoba Gathering - August 13-14, 2010

This may be short notice but lets give it a shot!

First Annual Manitoba gathering of Fiberglass and Vintage RV's.
Everyone is welcome to join us on Friday August 13 and Saturday August 14 at Watchorn Provincial Park nestled on the shores of Lake Manitoba.

- Approximately two hours north of Winnipeg on Hwy 6 and Provincial road 237.

- Total of 22 electric and 20 non-electric sites.

- Very nice beach area.

- Camping sites are designed to allow easy visiting and socializing. This should allow all of us to collect numerous ideas and plan for future RV projects!

- Provincial Parks are free for 2010 so no entrance fees.

- 11 kilometres from the town of Moosehorn, Manitoba.

- Reasonable camping rates: Basic is $9.45nt and Electrical $13.65nt

- At least one large bonfire and get-together on Saturday night. Consider this to be an informal "meet and greet" with not a lot of events planned. We can discuss the future of the gathering and how we would like to see it evolve.
- Parks Reservation phone number is listed below, once you have booked please use this topic/forum to advise of the number of people attending.

- Reserve for two nights or if that is not possible come for just the one night!

Please see the Provincial Park link below for more information on Watchorn:

http://www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/parks/pd...atchorn_bay.pdf

Parks Reservation Service:
948-3333 in Winnipeg
1-888-482-2267 toll-free

*** As of my last search (17 June 2010) on the Provincial camping reservation site there were 11 electrical sites available and 18 Basic/nonelectrical. Sites 18 to 27 (basic and electric) appear to be a good location for a gathering.

As we have never organized or attended an RV gathering before I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

We have a 1978 UNIK, 18 ft. fiberglass trailer. We know it was made in Quebec but haven't found out much else and haven't been able to meet up with any other owners. We would like to come visit but it's quite a trip from Dallas, TX! We would appreciate any info your campers may have on the vintage UNIK. Hope you have a fun gathering. Terry

the date looks good for me. have to check with my Social Director to confirm.
I attempted to get something started in Winnipeg a few years back but job commitments put the event on hold. I too, have never attended one of these events but I'd love to. if I can help in any way, let me know.
Does any one have a past agenda from another gathering?
so far, count me as a YES.

We just completed an online booking for our Watchorn camping site: Section 1 site #19. This spot is fairly open but does have electrical. There are also some nice non-electric sites near by with a lake view and also some other electrical spots along the same road we are on.

Hope to see you there!

Roland and Noella

Good Idea about the agenda Scott, hopefully some others can provide help in this area. Not sure what else needs to be done other then spread the word in as many ways as possible... any ideas on this would be great. I have added a similar post on the Bolerama Forum and if you think of anything else please let us know.

My family and I are all booked up! We decided to stay in a little more shaded area of the park. We're section 3, site 2. My sister and her family is also joining us, they don't have a fiberglass RV. They have an Airstream, and in the past have owned 2 Bolers. I guess their family is just too big

I'm still checking the schedule. but did have some thoughts about agenda.
must have a meet-n-great/show-n-tell tour.
how about a Sat night jam? any musicians out there?
pot luck seems to be popular.
what about hiring one of those pig roast guys and splitting the cost?
a swap meet? bring out all the stuff we've taken off our rigs and trade/sell
or donate proceeds to Linda for this wonderful site.
could we get one of the area RV dealerships to sponsor something
or put up a prize?
contest for "best of show" or "most innovative add-on" or "most original"

Some very good points Gord, I really hope your schedule will work out so that you can attend. I especialy like the idea of a pot luck and a meet/greet on Saturday after everyone is settled in. I suspect this would carry on into the evening with maybe a guitar and/or some talented people helping out! Lyndon has also mentioned a potluck in his posting so it appears to be popular as you mentioned.

Still trying to recruit more rv's; Donna has posted our rally in the Escape Travel Forum on our behalf and any other ideas or thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for now.

to Lyndon and LouAnn! Great to hear you are booked; with all the rain we have had up here you may not be too far off about the creek rising! Should be great weather by August, see you there.
