After discussions with a few Manitoba egg owners, I’ve come to the conclusion that a gathering in the Winnipeg area is worth a shot. After all, we’re right smack dab in the center of Canada and only minutes north of the US border.

I remember when my Dad retired from the airforce and told the family that Winnipeg would be his chosen “last posting”. That was because, no matter what, all of his friends had to pass through here sooner or later. So… in that spirit, I’d like to propose the first annual Winnipeg Fiberglass RV Gathering and start to organize a weekend of friends (new and old) coming together in a shared appreciation of camping in a fiberglass RV.

I’d like to set a date some time in the last half of June 2009 and suggest that Birds Hill Provincial Park be the location of choice. There are miles of cycling trails, a nice beach and it’s close enough to the city to draw lots of egg owners. The campground is clean, quiet and offers great group areas for campfires and informative sessions.

What I need at this time is simply a show of hands indicating whether or not there is true interest. This will be a great way to meet the egg community and find out first-hand what super nice folk we really are. So get that hand in the air and get the ball rolling.

Count the Trailer Goddess an I in, right close to the end of the month would suit us better (what a better way to celeberat a 20 year anniversary, July 4th., than with a "Home Coming").

I would prefer Falcon Lake, but only because I am more familiar with that lake (and a real lake to boot) and the Camping facilities there, but its YOUR meet!!!!!

I say go for it. (if you plan it, they will come) I would recommend keeping the date in June. That way those who are planning a trip can continue onwards to Emily for the first weekend in July.

Birds Hill in June/09 sounds great! We picked up our Scamp late this season so will look forward to using it as soon as it warms up again. We are first time trailer owners and look forward to meeting other egg owners. Sue

I'm a definite maybe. We have to be in The Peg a couple of times next year, though I'm not sure June is one of the times. But if there are any votes for August, you can add our name to that list.
cheers
Ian

A small rant but none the less a rant!!
I just spent almost 20 minutes on the site for Birds Hill Prov park. I was looking for a map of the campground(s). While I will admit the place has hugely grown from the mid 60's (when I used to frequent the pit, often partying LATE into the early morning hours) the map plan left me wonderin 'waz up wid dat???'

I found a pdf file with the map I was looking for (I think?). It was loaded sideways and after about 10 minutes with my bawld head cocked at the ten to four position, I gave up looking for the SHOWERS!! I tried printing out the map and again got NO results (suitable to my liking) so I gave up!! Can anyone PLEASE point me to the (ANY) shower facilities???

...I remain, dry, confused and rather ruffled, Doug, ex-pegger!!!

the showers are at the store Doug. I was also thinking about St. Malo, South of the city. we have the time to plan so I'm not married to any particular park as yet. St. Malo also has 2 beaches closer to the group area. let me know what you think?

St. Malo, yeah its a little closer to 'home' for me (St. Vital)... but after travelling 1500 miles in our '37 Plymouth, a few extra miles here or there really won't matter too much!

Whatever happened to the old KOA located east of the mint. I think I remember seeing its not there anymore, but I'z wonderin' IF its still a campground or not???

Sure were a lot of Saints around in days of yore, weren't there!!!

thinking St. Malo for this meet but keep going back to Birds Hill cause it's so close and we may be able take over a good portion of a bay of elec sites. I have to make some calls to ask what else they can offer us in the way of group discounts and such.

The date is also looking like it will be July 3-5 and that's the weekend before the Winnipeg Folk Festival if some out-of-town folks want to tie the 2 events together. Having said that, the park may be really busy at that time... another thing to check on.

the idea is starting to take shape. I even came up with an idea for a window decal to mark the event.
although the location is still up in the air... it's a start. I'll know in the next few weeks where the rally will be.
