*** MAY WEEKEND DETAILS FOLLOW ***
Folks, thanks for your interest and your patience - we have ourselves a date AND a location for a Alberta 'Meet for Keeners', here we go ...
Consensus was for the weekend of May 5/6
because the following one is Mothers Day and the one after that is the Long Weekend .. and then we're into June .. and, hey, that's just TOOOOO FAR AWAY!
Taking on board various people's feedback, we've settled on a location between Calgary & Edmonton, away from the Mountains (for warmer nights). Based on this, the location will be Spruce Bay Resort campground in Pine Lake
, just outside of Red Deer, Alberta.
Personally, Andrea and I will be doing two nights - the Friday and the Saturday (May 4 & 5) - some may prefer to do just the one. It's up to you. But we will find interesting and fun things to do on the Friday to get as many there for two nights as we can
There WILL be electric hookups
available for those that want it. Water hookups *** SHOULD *** be available
, depending on the weather, but are NOT guaranteed. Regardless there will be some kind of water supply even if hookups are not ready.
Space is definately limited
- you guys have been very responsive to this impromptu meet (we appreciate it! thank you) and, due to the size of the campsite and the long-term trailers checking in around this time, we have 30-35 spaces available only. Judging by how many people have expressed interest, we MIGHT be a little short.
The cost is 23.54 taxes in for an unserviced lot and 29.96 taxes in for a water/power service. It is ok to put two trailers on a single lot, but not all have two hook-ups. I suggest one trailer requiring service teams up with one that is self-contained to save on space and cost.
If you are considering joining the fibreglass community for this weekend to meet other enthusiasts and share your passion for these awesome 'lil trailers, please email me and I'll keep track of who is 'interested' and who is 'confirmed'.
DEADLINE TO REGISTER:
I have to let the campground know within 2 weeks approximately how many trailers are coming and need to commit final numbers at the beginning of April. So, if you are thinking about this please act quickly!
HOW TO REGISTER:
For now, please just email me : allthepies[a/t]yahoo.com - replace [a/t] with @ to get my email address. If you can't figure out my email from this 'puzzle', post your email address here and I'll get in touch with you.
Soon we will figure out what we are going to do this weekend - mostly, it will be very, very laid back and casual, but it might be an idea to have a bar-b-que or pot luck. Perhaps some people have advice and/or tips or renovation presentations they'd like to facilitate?
Thanks for everyone's interest in this event. As facilitators, Andrea and I are going for two nights for sure of course and we encourage as many of you to come as possible - without support from the community, events like this would just disappear - they depend on folks like you to take place
We look forward to hearing from you!
Darren & Andrea.
PS: When emailing me to register as 'firm' or 'interested', please send me a pic of your trailer. I'll be posting an 'attendees' page some place on the Internet so everyone can see who is coming
