For those that are looking for something to do after the Quartzsite rally, one suggestion is the Annual Western Winter Blast at the SARA Rodeo Grounds in Lake Havasu City, about 80 miles north of Dome Rock. You can make reservations for the 30th, which takes place February 11 - 18th, 2019.

The week of dry camping is a $150.00 donation to the rodeo for the 7 nights, more expensive than Quartzsite, & essentially a small slot in a parking lot. That said, there are 4 nights (Thursday through Sunday) of fireworks for 4 hours per night with demos of manufacturer's new products as well as shows. I was really impressed with the shows, which can be seen from the campground & some campsites.

They sell out the campground by November, start taking reservations today, and, if you want the spot you are currently in, you must reserve by July 31. I made a page with links to hundreds of photos of the show: 29th Western Winter Blast 2018, Lake Havasu City, AZ.

Great, smoothly run job, Greg. Saw all your rally pictures, Jon. Hey, I took your advice and got this better time exposure result on the second try.

By coincidence, John was Chris and I's next door neighbor at the Western Winter Blast in Lake Havasu City. Was a good time, and a memorable week of camping. The fireworks were off the hook great. We look forward to next year!

The plan was kept quite simple, which in part is what made it so successful and lots of great fun. A few organized events that were good fun, and getting to meet lots of great moulded fibreglass owners was the most fantastic part.

Definitely looking forward to make it back again.
