It was a nice, relaxed rally at one of the nicer private campgrounds I've seen.
I registered for next year on the way out. Site A11 if I remember correctly.
The area is mountainous, heavily forested with lots of hiking trails and too many waterfalls to see them all. I look forward to next year.

Johnny, I don't understand what you mean by
Please RSVP by going to the May 2017 Calendar

Walt if you click on the calendar link in the navigation bar it will take you to a calendar for the current month and year. Scroll down and you will see a jump to section, change the year to 2017. Click on the rally listing for the 18th and at the bottom is a place to RSVP.

Look forward to seeing you and your wife, along with all the other great people we met.

Thanks Michael. That's pretty slick, but I never would have found it without your help.

RALLY UPDATE: I am now beginning to work on planning and contacting potential sponsors for the 2017 2nd Annual Eggs on the Hiawassee River.

Like last year spots will fill up fast, many have already registered their spots so if you would like to attend this awesome rally don't wait. Last year I posted to a lot of facebook groups to get the word out but that was closer to time for the rally, this year I will be posting this much earlier to facebook so I expect sites to fill up quicker and with more attendees.

Please when you RSVP include the year make and model of your camper this helps me with finding sponsors.

Also, this year I am working on finding vendors who can actually come participate with booths, presentations or seminars (like RV maintenance, care, etc).

We will be doing the fish fry again on Thursday night and the pot luck on Saturday. Friday again will be a day for everyone to socialize among themselves or to site see locally. Saturday we will be doing the open house again along with the Campers Choice Awards (this was a big hit), categories may change a little but it will be fun!

We also plan on doing t-shirts again but they will be a different color shirt this year, I will start taking shirt orders closer to time for the rally.

I will keep everyone posted as things progress.

Hi Herschel,

If you click on the "Calendar" link above, then pull up the May, '17 calendar, and then click on the Eggs on the Hiawasee link, you can see who has registered.

Looking forward to the rally!

Take care,

Dean

Hi Herschel,

I bet there are folks who have made reservations and not posted them here or made reservations for 2017 while attending the 2016 rally and they have not posted their reservations here.

Take care,

Dean

Okay folks, I expect this years turnout to be really good as I have gotten the word out for this years rally early by posting the event to the Facebook groups listed below. If you want to attend this years rally don't wait, reserve your spot today, the sites will fill up fast. I have 23 on my list that I know are already signed up and probably some more that Riverside has reserved that I am not yet aware of. We would really like to see some more unusual and vintage fiberglass rv's attend such as Boler, Amerigo, Beachcomber, Perris Pacer, Burro, Oxygen, etc. or anything else unusual so if you have something (new or old) come join us!

Bob, when I spoke to River Bend they still show H-2 open so you need to call them. Also please keep me informed as well.

Thanks,
