6th Annual OHIO Fall Gathering Sept 23-27, 2010

THURSDAY, SEPT. 23 - MON. SEPT. 27

I have checked out several other campgrounds and cannot find one laid out as well as Caesar Creek, so decided to have it there again. Barb Claude was so sweet as to go check out the restrooms there & discovered a MUCH nicer shower house in the A loop. We could go up there to shower if you want. That loop is not reservable, unfortunately. We are in the same pet loop as we have been each year. I will be booking the same site (#149) as I always have, so it will be easy to find me.

We are planning a homemade ice cream get-together for Friday evening late. Terry is so generous she is bringing the ice cream mix for all. If anyone WANTS to bring cookies, brownies, or one topping for the ice cream, feel free to do so. Saturday morning will be our wonderful breakfast get-together where each family brings a dish to share. Saturday evening will be our group dinner at Der Dutchman in Waynesville.

Terry Riley had a GREAT idea, which we could certainly incorporate into our Friday evening. If anyone has a dutch oven and/or good dutch oven recipes, it would be fun to do a group campout with dutch oven (or other) cooking to share!

Also, if anyone has a corn hole or other games, feel free to bring it along. Last year it poured down rain (first time for our rallies!) If anyone has an enclosed shelter they want to bring, just in case, that would be great.

If you have any changes in email addresses, phone numbers, address, etc. please email me at sew4388[at]woh.rr.com & give them to me. This list will only be passed out at the rally for security purposes, & not posted. If you do NOT wish to share your personal info, please let me know.

Caesar Creek State Park Campgrounds is near the junction of I-71 and I-73 near Wilmington, OH. If you are heading south, get off I-71 [at] exit 45 (OH route 73 toward Waynesville) & turn left. Go across the "bridge" over I-71 & almost as soon as you get over the "bridge", turn left on OH route 380 (service station on the corner). Go about 3 miles & turn left onto Center Rd. which dead ends into the state park in about 1.5 miles. down.

If you are coming south on I-75, take exit 38 (FRANKLIN/SPRINGBORO exit) & go through Waynesville staying on OH route 73 and go about 19.5 miles until you go over the "bridge" across I-71 & turn left very quickly after the bridge (service station on the corner where you turn) onto OH route 380. Go about 3 miles & turn left onto Center Rd. which dead ends into the park.

[2010 RALLY FOR CASITA OWNERS, & OPEN TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO COME, REGARDLESS OF WHAT TYPE OF CAMPING EQUIPMENT YOU HAVE!!

DATE: ARRIVAL THURSDAY, SEPT. 23, 2009
DEPARTURE – MON. SEPT. 27

(Some of us are planning to stay until Monday.)

Please join us for the 6th annual Ohio Fall Gathering (EVERYONE is welcome – we love out-of-staters!!) Egg Rally at Caesar Creek State Park Campground, near the intersection of I-71 & St. Rt. 73 in southern OH.

COME IN A CASITA, ANY OTHER CAMPER OR RV, A TENT, OR JUST SLEEP UNDER THE STARS, BUT DO COME, PLEASE!! If you can't come until Friday, that is just fine!

The campgrounds is about 15 miles east of Waynesville, a charming town full of antique shops & a great Amish restaurant, Der Dutchman, where I would love to set up a group meal on Sat. evening if anyone is interested. They have a nice buffet, usually with beef, GREAT fried chicken, & ham, plus mashed potatoes, veggies, homemade noodles, salad bar, etc. for about $13each (INC. TAX, does NOT include drink or dessert) or you can order from the menu. There is a wonderful gift shop next door to the restaurant.

At the campground, there is a private swimming beach, fishing, boating (launch at the campground dock), showers (nothing to brag about!!) & full hookups available. There are 2 pet loops, which we always stay in so that all our friends may bring their babies!

Between the campground and Waynesville, there is a Pioneer Village, Renaissance Festival (discount tickets available online), BIG flea market (only about 5miles from the flea market & open Sat. & Sun. 9-5).

Here are some links you may find helpful with directions & info on some of these things:

About 30-35 miles SW of Caesar Creek, off I-75 in Monroe, OH, there are 2 more Flea Markets directly across I-75 from each other (how DUMB are they??? Ha! Ha!)

Heath and Candy, it will be nice to add more fiberglass to the mix. We have an open house after the Sat. morning breakfast and everyone is always especiallly excited to see other kinds of eggs.

It is a great group of people and I think you will be glad you came. Terry R.

Hello Sandy, looks like a great gathering. We have been trying to put this on our calendar for a couple years, looks good for this year. Questions? Do you have a group area or do we book a site on our own? Is the park booked heavily at that time or are sites available upon arrival? We usually dry camp with the egg and a solar panel, are there sites without power or group areas? Looking forward to meeting everyone, we love icecream! We are in the extreme NE part of Ohio and will gladly host anyone heading our way, we are only 5miles from I90. Hope to see everyone in Sept.

We are thinking about this one. We've not been to a rally yet. We just got our Burro this Spring and are in the process of renovating. It would be fun to meet everyone and see all the eggs.

Ed, everyone just reserves their own space. We all try to get a space in the pet section near site 149 on either side of the road. It is nice to have everyone close together. It is no problem to get a site, since school is back in, but the pet area seems to go first.

Heath, it is not a problem to only come for a day or two. If you make it on Friday night, you will be there for the pot luck breakfast and "open egg" on Sat morning. It is a rather informal gathering of really great people. Terry R

Oh, we would love for you to join us! Would suggest sites 152, 153, 187, 189 which are right in the middle of our group OR book ones right next to these.

Hope to see you. We have a ball!

Sandy

My bad. I keep forgetting to check posts on this site - am used to using the Casita site! Thank goodness for Terry Riley - she is always on the ball! Speaking of a ball, we always have one. I would suggest booking sites 152, 153, 187, 189 right now OR ones adjacent to these. We have 7 registered now & several more getting ready to book. It is not usually crowded at this time of the year. Weather is usually great & not so stinkin' hot at that time. Last year was the 1st year it rained on our parade, but some Casita friends had big canopies & we ate our group breakfast under them. Check with the campgrounds if you want dry camping, but you will have more fun in the middle of us nuts!! Please join us!

My bad. I never think to check this site. Thank goodness for Terry Riley! We do have a great time. We are trying some things different this year, at Terry's suggestion. On Friday night we are going to have a Dutch oven gathering & anyone can bring anything to it that they made in a Dutch oven (or any oven is fine). We plan to have another homemade ice cream social where people can bring brownies, cookies, etc. to eat with it. On Sat. a.m. we gooble 'til we wobble at our group breakfast, then anyone who wants tours the campers there for ideas. Sat. evening we all eat at Der Dutchman in Waynesville. Please join us. You won't regret it.

Hi... Just signed up for site 187. Arrive Sept 22 and leave morning Sept 28. Extremely new to Casita (yet to even tow it). My very first "frustration point" was not knowing how to retract the rear stabilizers. The manual doesn't include instructions to pull down the square tubes to dis-engage the 'catch' to allow the jack to be stowed for travel. '
