Hi Roy,

To the best of my knowledge, next years dates are October15-18.

That is Thursday thru Sunday. (3 nights)

Before leaving Sunday (Yesterday) Ann and I registered for the 14th-18th (4 nights).

Jennie the Social director said there were several others that had already
signed up for 2015. That was at approximately 9:15am. Gotta infer that they really enjoyed themselves to sign up a year in advance!

I'm starting a new thread for 2015, if I can figure how to do it again.
This much lead, should give enough time for more thought.

Go there for more info as understood at this point in time. Perhaps Lynne will offer clarification, as I certainly don't know all the "stuff"!

Thanks
Kip

Kip, Thanks to you and Lynne for all the "behind the scene tasks" you did to make this year a great success. We had a great time. Five of "our group" left the pot luck to grab sites for next year. We didn't know there was an Elvis in the house until Sunday, heard it was a hoot!! Ignoring the rain, we had a GREAT time. Robnmer

We had a wonderful time at this year's Cherokee rally! Once things dried up a bit, it sure was nice getting to visit with friends old and new. Thanks to Lynne, Kip, the Dutch Oven Cooks, and others, for all their work in making the event such a success. We're booked on site #108 for next year, "Good Lord willing and Soco Creek don't rise", to paraphrase that old expression!

This was our first rally and we enjoyed. I don't think I ever met Kip but I know Lynne as she is the one that told me about the Casita. We enjoyed meeting fellow campers and the activities were great. I loved being a frog. We hope to return next year.

I think Troy beat me to the one next to them but I am on the other side of him. Hope to get more U-Hauls to show up next year. It would be cool to have a line of them. But even where I was this year is still a very good site.

Isn't anyone going to post even a single picture? There's a saying on some other fora I frequent that goes, "Pictures, or it didn't happen!" I won't go that far, but I sure would like a little virtual peek at the event. Pretty please...

Thank You!

Two people really made this rally happen as it should.

Lynne took the reins this year. She said this was her first time at such an endeavor and was quite nervous about whether or not she could deal with the details. As she was not even sure what the details were supposed to be! I think she did as good a job as could possible be done, even by someone more experienced. She tied some new things and they worked. All the right things she did resulted in a lot of folks registering for 2015, before leaving.

Then behind the scenes was Jean. Jean voluntarily took the reins in 2012.
Without her, Cherokee rallies would have most likely not happened after the one in 2011.
She applied her personal touch and made C-2012 a success. Seems there were about 35+/- rigs attending. And Word got out!

Jean lead again in 2013. Rig count was nearly double that of 2012. And many people registered for 2014 before leaving the 2013 rally. Yes, it was that enjoyable!

Due to extended traveling, Jean was not planning to be at C-2014 but was kind enough to create a nice "Official" web page. So she was still with us from afar. She listed the activities, and participants list, and made countless additions, subtraction's, and changes. She also served as adviser when asked. Her travels took her to Texas around the first part of October. She made it a point to register and, from Texas, came to C-2014. Quietly helping where needed.

There were others that helped make it so enjoyable. I don't know who all did what, but a few names come to mind.

Lindalee did table cloths and decorations for as many Pot Luck tables as she had supplies for.

Donna took charge of the Dutch Oven demo.

Roger did the rally fire Friday night.

So many folks volunteered to help with putting together the name tags during Sweet and Greet. And helped prepare the Rec Room before and after Pot Luck. Those that gave donations to help with expenses. Those that opened their trailers for Show of Homes. And those that had campfires every night and welcomed anyone that stopped by.

Thanks to all!

Kip

That is going to be a scary place with all those classics in a bundle!

Nice catch Robnmer! Thanks.

The fire was a nice extra touch, and thanks to Robert and Gary for keeping it burning.

I'm thinking that Lynne said, HH donated the wood for the fire.

I also forgot to mention the musicians at the fire and in the Rec Bldg , as well as the willing (and unwilling) uh..... "volunteers" participating inside the rec building!

Most likely every attendee, has special moments that will be remembered for a long time.
