2015, Aug. 14-16: 6th Annual Manitoba Fiberglass and Vintage Camper Rally

We would like to invite you all to the 6th Annual Manitoba Fiberglass and Vintage Camper Rally

Open to all Boler, Trillium, Surfside, Scamp, Ventura, Teardrops welcome as well, ect….

Dates: August 14 to 16, 2015

Location: St Malo Provincial Park; located 45 minutes South of Winnipeg and 45 minutes North of the Canada/USA border on Highway 59. This park has a nice beach area along with hiking and biking trails. There are modern washrooms and showers and the small town of St Malo is within one mile.

We will be using Bay 11 for electrical and Section A for Non-electrical again this year for the Rally. This is a popular park in Southern Manitoba so please make your reservations as early as possible so that some people will not be in other areas of the park like last year.

Reservations at the Parks Website: Monday, April 6, 2015 @7AM ; link to reservations is http://prspub.gov.mb.ca/

If you plan to attend the event please see theRALLY CALENDAR on the http://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f...tml#post497830 website and RSVP to me.

Thank you from your hosts

We are eagerly looking forward to this event. We purchased a 1976 Surfside this past summer and have camped in it once. It did need some work and will get a few more things done in the spring. We can't wait til summer and we plan to have camped a number of times before the rally weekend. We will be registering as soon as we can and are willing to help with activities as needed. Looking forward to the event and we will watch for more info as it becomes available.

Actually you're wrong there, it will be the THREE only warm days of the year, and rumour has it Rick has promised no Mosquitos this year! We hope, after two years of conflicts on that weekend to be there, it's for sure our closest rally, only 35 minutes from home.

Last years event was very warm for weather with the Friday being the hottest day I can ever remember in my whole life. I have traveled to some locations in the world that get hot weather and have never felt heat that hot.

Actually the mosquitos have not been bad the last number of years that we have been at St Malo. Not sure if the park sprays or not. Last year the Friday was the hottest temps I can say I ever felt in my life. I am hoping the weather will be warm that entire week as Shirley and I plan to be at St Malo for the week before the Rally. If anyone wants to come out early they are welcome to join us, but the official Rally starts on Friday the 14th

Unfortunately we will be missing this year's rally. My dad will be there as usual but the rest of us and our surfside will be up in clear lake that weekend camping while I complete a big life goal of mine (a sprint triathlon!) I need the family to cheer me on!

I hope you can come as well. Hard to think about camping when it is cold outside, but I see my Boler outside everyday when I come home from work and know that there will be weather coming that I can go out camping again one day. I will send out the reminder the end of March to book your site the first Monday of April. I have added your name to my list of contacts.

Rick my calendar is marked already for the 6th of April, certainly hoping to make the rally this year. At least I don't have to look out the window at home at the Escape. Don't mean to brag or hurt any MB people's feelings but currently I am sitting at the dinette in the trailer parked at a lovely RV park in the Rio Grande valley in far south Texas where it was a sunny 26 today.

This our first year to be snowbirds and loving it. The people here can't believe we can live in such a small trailer! They all have park models, motor homes or huge 5th wheels. Beth commented when we were introduced Monday after our arrival that we feel like we are the outhouse to the motor home next door!

You are not the outhouse of the campground. You are the most practical camper in that campground. You did not need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to take your whole house with you camping. Those people are not camping in my opinion. Most of them stay in there slightly smaller version of their house and watch TV and surf the net and never come outside because there are bugs outside.

I watch a show on TV called Tiny House Nation where people give up their HUGH house and start to live in 500 sq ft or less house. Those people get it, the ones in Large campers and motor homes don't get it.

Just my opinion

Rick I too have been following tiny houses, not the TV show but sites online. I agree with your comments about those who have large trailers and motor homes who go to campgrounds and hang out inside, but the park we're in is not typical. Even the park models are smaller here, there are only 92 sites and the park has a nine hole golf course so everyone is active here, in fact 28 men headed off this morning to play at an 18 hole course nearby where they play for $24 including cart. We find things here much cheaper than Florida.

Beth's comment about the outhouse was entirely in jest, people have certainly commented on our egg though nobody has yet asked for a tour. Most don't know anything about FG trailers. I suppose at the MB rally we'll be in the BIG trailer!

See you in August.

Adrian
