Update:  This rally deadlines to register are past.  Questions – Contact June.

*There is a standby list.  If someone cancels, the next person on the list will be contacted by June Ryan.  You will be responsible for repaying the cancelling member for all costs.  The reservation name will then be changed.  Please mail your completed registration to June Ryan to be placed on the standby list.  The registration form is attached at the back of the December 2017 newsletter.  Instructions are here.

Please be aware of the time sensitive date.  No refunds after March 24.

*If your name is not moved to active from the standby list, 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.

*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.

3 nights parking, with full hookups, cable TV and Wi-Fi

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. -Beth

We gave priority to our own region members and opened registration to the other Regions beginning February 1st.
