Fall Rally in Northern Illinois

Time for another Fall Rally in Northern Illinois.

We'll meet September 27, 28 and 29. at the Seward Bluffs Campground. The park is located between Rockford and Freeport, south of Route 20 ,off of Pecatonica Road.

The Park has plenty of gravel and grass sites with 30 and 50 amp electric. Water hydrants throughout the park and a dump station.

Seward Bluffs « WCFPD

We'll call this one

Fall Forum Finger Food And Fondue Feast

Our Fall fests have featured flavors from fiestas to fettuccine, fruit pies to flan.
In the past we're grazed on appetizers to the point of wondering if we can stuff down the main course.

This time. our Saturday potluck will have a No Silverware theme.
Only finger foods or pieces served with tooth picks and skewers. I know we have a bunch of creative cooks out there. Plan on plenty of variety.
We'll post details and a food list as we get closer.

Additionally it's been suggested that we have an optional Friday Fondue Night.
More on that later.

With luck we won't get frozen out this time.
Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. See you soon,

Tom and Sue

I sit here in 100 degree temp reading this post that in 2 months we might have freezing temps. Shiver me timbers. Sounds like this will be a fun adventure.
See ya

Reservations needed?

Hello,
We would like to join you. Wanted to make some of your earlier Northern Illinois rallies, but couldn't work the calendar out, but this time I think we can do it.
Do we need camping reservations?
Eileen & Ed

Eileen and Ed, love to have you join us.

No reservations are required. Well, actually the park doesn't accept them.
We've never had an issue with a lack of space. We usually come out early and clue in the campground host. He'll let the SOBs know theres a bunch of AirHeads gathering so we can count on camping together.

See everyone soon,
Tom.

Like Dana and Mike it's hot here in Oswego, should be pleasant then. We will be busy as Nascar week Joliet, then Mark Twain Lake, then Sewards Bluff, if nothing happens will be there. Bill & Penny

6 weeks to the Friday fondue and than the finger food on Saturday. Sounds interesting. Don't forget your "wet ones" and napkins/paper towels.
Menu to be announced.
See you at Sewards Bluff.

My wife and I are relatively new Airstream owners and were hopeful that we could make this rally and meet others in the Northern IL unit but unfortunately it falls on parents weekend for one of our college students. Sounds like fun but we will have wait for the next one.

Here’s the update for Friday night.

There will be an optional gathering Friday night for Fondue. Dana and Sue will be providing a traditional Cheese Fondue.
If you are coming please bring you’re own meat, chicken or beef or whatever you like and your favorite two or three sauces for passing.

See everyone soon,
Tom

The count-down is on till the "Forage of fattening food". Then we get to exercise to get rid of the gain. Just kidding.
Still looking forward to the fall forum and the meeting of old and new friends.

If the days and nights stay cool, we can have a small fire and keep the "bottomless" coffee pot boiling.
Just 3 weeks to go!!

We can't make it this year. Promised my aunt that we'd take her to the Pancreatic Cancer Walk at the Detroit Zoo on 9/29 (she lives near there). She's a two year survivor, doing amazingly well after pancreas removal.
Stayed at Seward Bluff over the Fourth of July - nice campground.
See you all in the Spring!

Count us in. Sue just reminded me of the rally. As usual things are crazy at the ILL household. Emily might not make it as is Homecoming weekend. We will see.
Planning on little smokies and broccoli balls. Mmm Mmm good.

DAMMIT JANET! This is a ghost from the past talking - we considered secretly crashing this BUT it's the same weekend as the LAST Elkhorn (WI) flea market of the season - and we have no choice but to work it - our Main Street at the shop has been under construction again all summer- second time in 6 years ! What happened to OCTOBER?
