Please be aware of these time sensitive dates.
*Last day to register is March 24. After that date, you still may be able to stay at the RV Park but will not be able to attend the meals and activities that are planned.
*There will be a standby list. If our reservations are full and you wish to participate, we will have a standby list if someone cancels. You will be responsible for repaying the cancelling member for all costs. The reservation name will then be changed.
*There are no refunds after March 24.
*Extra nights are available. However, the nights prior to the rally will be more easily obtained than the nights after, due to the fact that another rally is coming in after us. After you have registered with June, you may contact the campground directly for the extra nights – ask for Michelle.

NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS –
Once again, I would like to remind you that if you signed the list at the Region Rally this spring, that does not mean you have an automatic reservation. We did the sign up to see what the interest would be. I would like all of those who expressed interest to be able to come to the rally.
That being said, since we announced the location of our next spring rally at the International Rally, I have had inquiries from both Region 7 and Region 9. They understand that I will give priority to our own region members. But if there are not enough members to fill the last 30 slots, I will open registration to the other Regions beginning February 1st.
As always, if you have any questions, please contact me. Beth
