The last couple of years we did not have a wait list and it worked well. So, this year we will again not have a wait list. However, we do ask if you have registered and need to cancel that you let us know as soon as possible.

As you enter the park please park wherever you wish, but please try to align the rear street (driver side) corner of your trailer with the utility post. Someone may need to back up to your site and share the same utility post. We are reserving several sites nearest to the Sunshine Inn for handicap parking.

The rally agenda will include morning coffee, griddle and Dutch oven cooking demonstrations, trailer maintenance discussion, panel discussion on boondocking (dry camping), swap meet, potluck (Thursday evening), Ladies Tea* (Friday noonish), dessert night (Friday), trailer open house (Saturday), catered BBQ dinner and door prize drawing (Saturday evening). Door prizes this year will include a WeberQ Grill, Blackstone Griddle and other prizes.  We will email the official agenda with additional details to all registrants in early October.

After many years of being the rally hosts George and Sandy have moved on and passed the baton. BIG hat tip to them! Also, Shawn Sawin will be passing her responsibilities of organizing the Ladies Tea. Sandra Hanna will continue the tradition and will be organizing the Tea. This year’s ”Posh Nosh Ladies Tea” will be a totally volunteer/potluck event with no fee. There will be a table-decorating contest with door prizes for the best decor! Wear your favorite Posh hat and dress however you like!  Bring a favorite teacup, plate and fork. Indicate your interest in attending when you fill out the registration form. Sandra will then be in contact via email with all interested registrants to provide details and organize volunteers.

If you're planning on attending, please register HERE and you can always come back and SEE WHO'S Coming.
