Can anyone start a Rally?

I would like to have one in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlingburg area if possible in the spring or early summer.

Got my interest

Sounds like you just did. Need a campground location and dates - we're in if it matches up with my travel schedule. More details please......

If you build it, they will come.

I kicked the idea around the forums about a rally this winter in AZ. I got a few replies, but did not feel that we would get a good turn out. Someone sent me a reply and said to pick a date and a location and see what happens. We currently have 30 folks signed up for next month's 4CU rally.

I have helped arrange about 8 of these Rallies . We have had small attendance of 8-10 Airstreams, and also larger attendance of up to 35. The main thing, is we have always had fun! No matter how many were there, we shared food, music, airstreaming stories and info, and friendship.
You can get as simple or as elaborate as you are comfortable with, but most want a minimal amaount of pomp and circumstance...and little pre- arranged agenda...just keep it simple and light and everyone will enjoy themselves.
Your area is accessible to us as well, and we are having a Spring Rally in N Georgia-- at Lake Chatuge,, April 20- weekend. See the info later this week. Come on down and check one out for yourselves!

We May Be Interested

Danielle and I are planning our vacation dates for the next few months - we may be able to attend depending on the dates. That area can be very crowded depending on time of year. I'm in favor of an "off-season" period if that helps narrow the possible dates. Just my .02 (from a guy who may or may not attend)

I think there is a rally in Hiawassee, GA planned for April (see above post) although it has not been put on the rally calendar yet. Keep that in mind too.

Rally 101

Pick a date.
Pick a place. Try for a place where everyone pays for themselves.
Bingo! you got a Rally.

Great Idea !!

John and Tammy, I Love this area
I am not trying to "hijack" your idea, but just to give you some info.
I hosted a campout at Smoky Mountain Campground in Kodak, TN a few years back. It is located right off I-81, exit 407, highway 66. This was very convenient to the interstate. Trips to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg were less hectic without the trailer in tow, and we did some carpooling as well.

TN Rally

Click on the link and go to campgrounds so we can pick one. I reccommend Creekside. We have driven through it an it is nice and close to everything.

Are you thinking of a WBCCI Rally or just a fun get-together Rally?
