We will be finished with the Good Sam rally in Madway, BC on the 24th of June and looking for someplace to go after.

Where in S Alta?

I could do it from the BC coast and visit the "outlaws" in "Leftbridge" on the same trip?

No time to organize something like this, but sure would be into attending if it were to happen.

Writing on Stone is a great place to visit. In fact, I was there on the May Long when we canoed the Milk River from the Milk River town site to the park. Not sure that is has the room to support a rally, as it is booked up much of the summer. If it was doable, it would be a good place to go.

Something more central might be nice, but to be honest, I know little of the camping on the prairies. Most of mine is done to the west, either at our rec property NW of Sundre, or throughout the mountains.

Nanton has a nice campground (location of the landcaster bomber) with a group area. Dinosaur Provincial Park (N.E. of Brooks) also has a seperate group area. There is also a selection of group camping areas in Sibbald Creek and Kananaskis area. Not sure of the availability of any of these areas.

I don't have much time to help organize this year but would definitely be able to help organize something for next year.

It would be tough to get something going for this year anyway. Most folks have the summer season pretty much planned out already. I know I do.

I agree Jim, we just got home from a 7100km Yukon/Alaska adventure and have the next 4-5 weekends planned with some shorter trips, but always want to open the possibilty to something in the fall.

Hi All
I would be interested in something in September. There are several places in southern AB that could possibly accommodate a gathering. My first choice would be Sandy McNabb,it is about 30 km southwest of Turner Valley or about an hour SW of Calgary. It recently went through a major overhaul about 2 years ago which added power to all sites and a new bathhouse. Both group A & B have power which is rare for group sites, one is more open while to other one has a few more trees. The link is below.

There are several other places that could possibly work as well, I have included their weblinks:
