was opened one week ago tonight. We've had 79 registrations as of this moment compared to 10 for the 2006 rally
and 27 for the 2007 rally
in the first week. Those of you who register early are wise to do so, I'm sure we will have to limit the number in the park. Those that register late may find themselves dry camping
or in nearby overflow parks.
As I recall, we had 67 attend the 2006 Rally in Perrin, Texas, and 129 this year in Bandera (169 registered, 31 canceled, 9 no shows). Of these, several stayed off site (6), so I believe we ended up with 123 trailers in the park.
Just in case you haven't noticed, I've been maintaining an updated "who's coming" list on each of the three Casita/Fiberglass forums. Each list is updated once a day just before I turn off the computer at the end of the evening. (This has proved much easier than updating a stand alone "Who's Coming" web page as I did last year.) For security's sake, I'm listing registration number, first names, home town, and screen name. Example, "1 Brad & Beverly Santa Fe NM BradBev".
So, you can scan the list and see if your friends have registered. If they haven't, tell them to not wait until the last moment. We won't turn anyone away, but they may not be able to stay on site if they wait too long.
We look forward to a fun event. See you next April.
