I'm in on that one! but at this late date, I wonder if we can get the word out to everyone. Something else that the groups have done is have a 'table sale' of items that they want to unload (er, resell ).

bolerama in ontario uses a white board people list the item and site #, others just leave stuff laid out on display with prices in the group areas.

At class reuinion they have people bring a gift and draw for them as door prizes. That is a pretty fun event. People are asked to bring something "local" to where you are from, but then that group is from a more diverse geographic area. Or maybe not?

I like the idea of stuff for sale board or area.

I think at this first event it would be good to just sit around, maybe after dinner and brainstorm ideas. So many people have good suggestions.

IMO, no gift but a sale could be good. That way nobody would feel pressure to get a gift.

It might be an idea to have a time set aside for a camper open house for those that wish to participate. Chance to check out each others campers, and let folks in the campground who might want to get an idea of what FGRV's are like.

Don't really have any idea how something like that could be organized so that only the campers that don't mind can somehow "flag" their site as participating. Sort of like at Holloween, you leave your porch light on if you are passing out candy. Maybe a crepe paper streamer or something on the site?

I thought that everyones' trailers would be open houses.... or at least I planned to tour them all But, at the other Rally that I attend, if you are opening your trailer for the tours, you just leave your door 'open'.

oh speaking of pictures, i know we will have our laptop, and i expect others will too. if you have a digital camera please share pictures with others. specialy if we have someone thats good (that means willing) at putting together an album for us.
I have an unlimited Flickr account which also means I can upload full size images. It has "albums" these collections can be directly linked to. Don't mind collecting and uploading pictures. There are no special features to the albums they are just a named group of photos with thumbnails and navigation.

If I make the collection public anyone can download or get links to individual pictures. You can to email a link to friends and family and they can also view or download.

If your not familiar with Flickr you can check these out.

Share button gets you the link
P1050041 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Actions button -> View All Sizes lets you download at various sizes.

This is a link to an album
Hee Haw - a set on Flickr

BTW - these pictures are the hartland senior center show they put on as a fund raiser. My wife Cheryl does tap, she is in the center of the first picture wearing the pink and white striped dress. These ladies run from in their 50's to upper 80's and they are really good.

Leave the door open!
All well and good for you folks with screen doors!

I too am looking forward to scoping out all the different features and mods, DW is looking forward to checking out the decor and pretty stuff. People can check out our rig to see how far the features have come since back in the day
And say hi to the dog. Katie says oh boy people my favorite

i like the "open house time idea" but.... not everyone functions the same at all times,,, one group may have their egg ready to be seen early,,, others may take awhile to get going. perhaps an open house ribbon? that would signify your willing to great visitors?
we can figure something out. i like the sale table idea. if someone knows how it would work i'd be good with that. the gift thing might be an idea for next time as with so little time left and people on the road,, it might just be too much of a scramble.
well,,,,, unless it was gifts of donuts......mmmmm donuts...

Hi John and all Eggs, I think the "open House' is a really neat idea. Last month I took my egg to the Tin Can Tourest up in Port Austin MI. At noon on Saturday they blew a big fire horn that was the start of the open house tour. Everyone had their campers all decked out for folks to stop by and take a look. It was so much fun to show off my "egg" to "tin can" owners and the same for me to see the old cans. I had 65 people vist my egg.

You hurt me with that bacon picture. I'd hurt more if I ate it, though. But it sure would be good going down.
