How about the spring? We'll be doing Eggscursion in TN in April, but would there be availability in Brattleboro in May? Vermont is pretty in the spring as well. And since we have discovered a whole bunch of eggs in this area it would be great to keep the incentive to get together and share.

I was under the impression there were several complaints about the Copake cg owners and the way you guys were treated. There are far too many other nice cg in NY than repeating at one that does not want your business. Finger Lakes and Adirondacks come to mind. Let's hash out something.

We had no issues with the campground owners, but only had contact with them at check-in. There may have been miscommunication or misunderstandings between all involved as to who was doing what, but that's just speculation on our part. Most rallies or group camping that we do is self supporting, the most recent being the Northeast TCT rally that had a large number of participants, and was very well organized, but at extensive work by the person running it all. So much time involved that they refuse to do it again without more help. It was held at a state park and their only involvement was allowing our use of the rec hall. The only campground hosted rally we have ever attended ( 4 times) is a vintage camper rally at the Brattleboro VT KOA, and the lady that owns the campground is very nice and does an excellent job of organizing it, including inviting the public in for a scheduled tour time. Since it is a small and popular campground she could only block off a number of sites for us at off season times, and fall does not look like a good time for her to do so as she has other events scheduled at that time. We of course are partial to doing it again at Copake because of the short distance travel for us, but certainly open to other options. We think however that relying on any campground for special service most likely won't happen and we will have to provide for ourselves. This is how we operate at a spring teardrop rally, and the number of campsites involved is usually in the 40 to 50 range. Looking forward to another fiberglass rally in the future as we made more new friends at this one.

Despite the mysterious revisions to promised arrangements at Copake, I don't remember anyone on site mentioning any great disappointment or hardship as a result. Beautiful area and CG situated on flat land, offering some advantages to the physically-challenged and newbies who may not have had time to perfect their site setup skills. I would not be put off from another visit but I would request the name of the operator/employee offering perks and stating policy.

It's not Memorial Day weekend, so we would be good for that weekend. If you get a positive response, you might want to make a new post.

I would not object to going back to Copake. The campground is lovely and clean. I would just not expect anything from the owners for our group.

I plan on going to Brattleboro both in June and sept, I have already reserved for next year, not sure about may30 and June 1 yet, would have to have enough sign ups to make it worth it, not sure about going back to Simpsons for the TCT if they have it, guess they haven't gotten anyone to take it over yet or volunteers yet

Take in to consideration that the vintage trailer rallies at Brattleboro are set up and run by the campground owner Beverly. If we were to do a fiberglass rally there I don't think we could expect all the benefits she provides at the vintage rallies. Since it is a small campground it may be unreasonable to ask to have a number of sites blocked out for our use. I would suggest that to do it there we would have to do like we do at our teardrop rallies, and that is for the lead person to pick a site, and everyone else try to reserve around that lead persons site. We do our meet & greet and potluck at that site. We could do a morning coffee & donuts also if we can find a close source for donuts and a volunteer to make the donut run. To do such a rally we would have to reserve way ahead.
