Greetings,
I have huge interest in attending a Boler/Fiberglass Rally. Most of these meets so far are a little out of my range within the next year or two. So this leads me to one theory... Plan a Boler meet in Kananaskis Country Alberta!

I am known for party planning at home and parades of garage sales so how hard would a Boler meet be?

This is where everyones advice is needed...

1. Would anyone in the area (or outside for that matter) be interested in a FG Trailer meet in the Calgary, Alberta area?

2. For anyone who has planned these events in the past, what is involved?

Look forward to everyone's input!

Nancy has large event planning nailed!

I've been involved in events for the past 30-35 years, but most classic car related. What I've found is you can plan to the nth degree or not plan anything at all....all you really need to do is find a place and put out the word about place/time/costs. Everyone makes their own reservations/arrangements, etc. What people want most is to just get together. Over the years, our car club has learned to NOT over plan and over schedule folks time. The best events we've had are the most simple. You're already through half the battle simply by having the idea and desire

Woo-hoo! Sounds like FUN! Are you thinking of this year sometime? Richard and I would be game for September! Put us down as a definate INTERESTED for quesyon #1.

FYI: There's a Bolerama in Saskatchewan on the third weekend of July. It's always well attended (66 units last year). I believe they posted the info in this forum, but you can also go to the Bolerama pages for info.

Q.2: Regarding planning for the Prairie Bolerama (Saskatchewan), one of the reasons they have it there instead of Alberta (I've been told) is because of the difficulty in finding a location in AB that has flush toilets, power and showers - apparently a MUST for some people. Also in finding a place that has group camping or will take reservations. Anytime you can get the campground to handle the reservations (and the $), you lose some control over the event...and some of the work! Let me know if you need a hand with anything.

Thanks so much I am excited by the thought now that someone else might go! I invision myself sitting in a group camp by myself for the first one! I like your advice on the washroom that could be a challenge as the place I am thinking is Sandy Mcnabb in Kananaskis. It has a great group camp very private, large group campfire area and shelter if the weather is not so nice. No showers or flush toilette's though. Lots of well kept outhouses! I would aim for September if possible too as it will take me some time to get it together and that is IF the group camp is available and there is enough interest. If not we will aim for next year. But in the end I would really like it for this year! Thanks for your interest I hope we can make it happen!

Jollean,

Here's the website for the Prairie Bolerama in case you can make it.

http://www.sasktelwebsite.net/kobitzm/index.htm

It's being held the 21st to 23rd of July at the Eagle Valley Park Campground, which is about a 4.5 hour run from Calgary.

A September get together in Kananaskis sounds like a nice idea. Consider me interested.

Greetings all!
Yes the Bolerama is scheduled for the July 20 - 23 weekend at Eagle Lake campground just east of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. I am registered. I understand there is lots of room and a whole field for overflow if we need it. Maple creek is just into Saskatchewan (25 miles east of the Alberta Border). The campground is situated in a beautiful river valley and is located right on the TransCanada Highway. We will arrive there on the 20th to see if we can help out in any way, and will stay over to the following monday, then adjourn the Court of Relaxation to the Big Valley Jamboree at Camrose Alberta for the following weekend.
These events are open to all fiberglass rv'ers who wish to attend. Call for a site and come and join us. Anyone with ambitions to organize any event in the area gets my hearty applause, and we will welcome any opportunity to meet with other Eggnut such as ourselves.

Hi Jollean..Great idea..Just take the bull by the horns kiddo and getter done.I am planning our first meet here on Prince Edward Island and as someone has given you the advise do it and it will build.I am working on my old theory...KEEP IT SIMPLE..I don,t think people want or need to be led by the hand for a week-end and be told where and when to be here and there etc for planned events. I want to see people come to our meet,and if they want to take off and enjoy our Island or go out for dinner do it..The main thing is to meet and greet and talk Fiberglass when you want to and enjoy each others units etc. Relax relax relax. But we are having our meet in conjunction with the Atlantic Fiddlers Jamboree.This wil provide entertainment which I don,t have to organize or worry about. It helps them to bring people in, and also our event will provide some entertainment for their followers to see all these cute little units in the Festival camp ground...
