We're in.

Lord willing, we're in. Great meeting you at Copake, thanks for coming up with this super idea!

We are totally in for Brattelboro, it sounds like a great weekend. But don't we have to be vintage? I'm not sure a '93 egg would qualify

Okay folks. A few things came up last night when I talked to the judge. First, camping is free. Power is not, at least right now. He tells me maybe 6 bucks a night, but that may go down based on power needs (i.e., 20 amp vs. 30 amp). They just can't afford to pay for everybody's AC in mid-August for a whole weekend. All the water you want is available, but not for constant hook-up. The steak dinners are more like 6 or 6.50, but that includes ice cream I guess. Also, seeing it's private property and not a "real" campground, the event will run from Friday afternoon till Sunday afternoon.

What I would like to do is figure out some sort of event schedule, but there's no rush right now. I.e., want dinner made Friday night? Saturday night? Breakfast Saturday morning? Brunch Sunday? Trust me, the judge and Nancy can cook up a storm for a bunch of people at very low cost. They do it all the time, and are doing it somewhere with a motorhome group this weekend. They have a very good reputation and love doing it. On the other hand, if we want to cook our own, we can use there traveling propane set-up for free.

Let me work up some alternatives when we get back from western NY next week, and I'll post some more specific ideas. Don't forget, pontoon boat rides on the Hudson, and easy boat launch access on this property for your canoes and kayaks, and a dock to tie them to.

Seeing this is all new to me (organizing an egg event), ideas, suggestions, advice and help are greatly appreciated!

More later...

Frank

sue, the brattelboro vintage rally is the last weekend in sept so wouldnt be that weekend, she also does a halloween weekend the first weekend in october so she is going to let me know when and if a weekend is available for a fiberglass rally. would love to go in october, vermont is beautiful that time of year, this is right near the conn river for kayaking, vermont country store, which is unique and lots of other stuff. ill let everyone know when she gets back to me about a date and if enough people are interested we'll set it up

Have decided to hold off on Brattleboro because the camp ground only has the last weekend in August free, nothing in sept or to late in oct, and I don't want to interfere in franks weekend in August so I'm good with going back to copake in October if anyone else is, Jim are you going to set it up for Copake the first weekend in October again?

I and a few others can vouch that Jim is real. Jon may even have a picture or two of him from one of the Niagara Wine Escapes.

How about the spring? We'll be doing Eggscursion in TN in April, but would there be availability in Brattleboro in May? Vermont is pretty in the spring as well. And since we have discovered a whole bunch of eggs in this area it would be great to keep the incentive to get together and share.

I was under the impression there were several complaints about the Copake cg owners and the way you guys were treated. There are far too many other nice cg in NY than repeating at one that does not want your business. Finger Lakes and Adirondacks come to mind. Let's hash out something.

We had no issues with the campground owners, but only had contact with them at check-in. There may have been miscommunication or misunderstandings between all involved as to who was doing what, but that's just speculation on our part. Most rallies or group camping that we do is self supporting, the most recent being the Northeast TCT rally that had a large number of participants, and was very well organized, but at extensive work by the person running it all. So much time involved that they refuse to do it again without more help. It was held at a state park and their only involvement was allowing our use of the rec hall. The only campground hosted rally we have ever attended ( 4 times) is a vintage camper rally at the Brattleboro VT KOA, and the lady that owns the campground is very nice and does an excellent job of organizing it, including inviting the public in for a scheduled tour time. Since it is a small and popular campground she could only block off a number of sites for us at off season times, and fall does not look like a good time for her to do so as she has other events scheduled at that time. We of course are partial to doing it again at Copake because of the short distance travel for us, but certainly open to other options. We think however that relying on any campground for special service most likely won't happen and we will have to provide for ourselves. This is how we operate at a spring teardrop rally, and the number of campsites involved is usually in the 40 to 50 range. Looking forward to another fiberglass rally in the future as we made more new friends at this one.

Despite the mysterious revisions to promised arrangements at Copake, I don't remember anyone on site mentioning any great disappointment or hardship as a result. Beautiful area and CG situated on flat land, offering some advantages to the physically-challenged and newbies who may not have had time to perfect their site setup skills. I would not be put off from another visit but I would request the name of the operator/employee offering perks and stating policy.

It's not Memorial Day weekend, so we would be good for that weekend. If you get a positive response, you might want to make a new post.

I would not object to going back to Copake. The campground is lovely and clean. I would just not expect anything from the owners for our group.

I plan on going to Brattleboro both in June and sept, I have already reserved for next year, not sure about may30 and June 1 yet, would have to have enough sign ups to make it worth it, not sure about going back to Simpsons for the TCT if they have it, guess they haven't gotten anyone to take it over yet or volunteers yet
