Looking like it will possibly be a day trip for me and my wife on Saturday. How many of you are bringing a U Haul?

Chris, I think yours will make 3 if Greg & Jane are able to make it; maybe others I don't know.

There are now 46 rigs registered. Ranging from site 70 and along that west creek, down to the front (south) creek, and along that creek to site 107.

There are 10 rigs on sites 910 through 924 and 1 rig on the 800 row.
Looks like a total of 81 people.

Several folks have indicated that this will be their 1st rally.

Plenty of time for others to join us. But I feel certain the camp ground is filling fast!

Kip

Talking Latest count

Unless there has been a cancellation we don't know of,

Right now we have 50 rigs listed, 11 singles and 39 couples. This should be a lot of fun!

Time is getting close.

Just a few weeks until we meet at Cherokee!
Jean asked me to post this message from her here.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We now have 55 rigs listed, very close to 100 people attending with several who have never been to a rally. Kip and I have worked out a very simple schedule and I'm going to paste it below.

Update on the rally. We are very pleased by the response to/interest in the rally and hope this will be a very enjoyable one for everyone. With that in mind we need to start now passing along some important info.

Note: There will be a White Board at my site #90, showing the various activities outlined here.

Breakfast on Friday Oct 18. For those up at 8am with nothing else to do, This will be at 8AM at "Granny's Kitchen". Pretty good breakfast buffet for the early risers. About 2 miles from Happy Holiday. Last year about 22 or so attended.

Egg Parade on Saturday, Oct. 19: To avoid confusion and allow everyone a chance to go visiting we're splitting the group into 2 sections.
Sites 70-93 and those in the 900s will be open from 9:30 am to 12 noon
Sites 94 to 108 and the 800s will be open from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Opening your trailer to visitors is NOT compulsory. Kip has some bright orange surveyors ribbon you can hang on your tongue jack or somewhere else so folks will see it. The tape will be an indication that visitors are welcome. You can get the ribbon at Kip & Ann's site 920 or I may have some when you check in with me.

Pot Luck, Saturday, 5 pm. We have close to 100 people attending the rally. The room on the top floor of the rec building is listed to hold 66. We've spoken with the folks at Happy Holiday and they are going to put some picnic tables on the covered porch that extends around the building so there will be seating for everyone. Dealing with this many people means we have worked out some guidelines that we hope folks will abide by:

1.Parking near the building is very limited. If at all possible walk to the building OR drive over, deliver your contribution, drop off 1 person, drive vehicle back to your site. OR carpool OR work it out so 1 vehicle brings the contributions from more than 1 trailer with the people (except for driver) walking. Main idea is to keep the limited space at the building as clear as possible. We do not plan to get into organizing the food delivery and we hope you will work with us!

2. Seating at the building, There won't be room for everyone inside, we ask that some of you take advantage of the tables on the porch. There are several doors and there will be opportunity to visit with friends.

3. We plan to put signs on a couple of the doors; 1 will say Enter/In the other on a different door will say Exit/Out. If people follow those signs we think the crowd will flow better.

4. Incentive: Once the food has been arranged inside, we plan on inviting the folks, who will be sitting on the porch, to form the food line first, coming in 1 door and going out the other one. We think this will make the whole process more efficient, without overloading the interior of the building . After that line has dwindled then the people eating inside will be welcome to get in line.

5. We set the start time at 5 pm in hopes that it won't be too dark or cold then, so everyone can enjoy their dinner and the camaraderie.

6. Be sure to bring your drink, plates and utensils. .

I will be arriving at Happy Holiday on Oct. 15 and will be available whenever my truck is parked at the trailer. Name tags will be available from then on.

Jean

We've checked our list against that of the campground and they have 3 trailers listed that we don't have so I'd appreciate some help here. The following people have registered with Happy Holiday as being with the egg campers but have not contacted either Kip or me and we'd really appreciate it if they would:
Charles Johnson site 102
Don Bell site 908
Larry Cliff site 913
I can't make up name tags if I don't have names for starters.

If you are one of the people listed above I would really appreciate an email ASAP with your name(s), home state and date of arrival. Please email me at borderbrae@aol.com

John, we did that last year. We stayed in one of the cabins and had a great time. The official opportunity to visit other trailers is Saturday, but other times might be possible. Go back to the original post that got it all started for this year's rally, and let Kip or Jean know you are coming. See you there! Only one month away!

Thanks Susie,

The full moon, along with the babbling of the creeks, should be a wonderful combination for walks in the evening.
And our area is the only one blessed with 2 creeks.

This thing keeps getting better and better!
