Florence OR, OCT 18-21 informal rally.

We are going to Florance OR for Oct 18-21. Anyone want to join us for an informal rally. We are Thousand Trails / NACO members and will be staying at South Jetty. Thousand Trails - Getaways

If you are a TTN member and want to join us then you can reserve on your own.
For non-TTN members...
I have talked to the Rally Coordinator at Encore (the parent company of TTN). if we can get commitment for 10 or more then there will be a discount on the fee. their list price is $40 a night and the discount would be about 30% off that.

This would be a do your own thing rally. lots to do around Florance. We could organize a Sat night potluck.

and other (non-Airstreams) are welcome. We will have some friends with us.

Lets start a discussion. Anyone want to help with the planning and organizing?
thanks,
Garth

I hope a group of us will take the dune buggy tour. It's the only way to see the dunes, since just bits of the dunes are visible from highway 101. I took the tour, but the buggy rides were not in a purple dune buggy! Also, wear your down jackets! It was a warm day when I rode the dune buggy, but still very cold with the wind chill.

Hi- My wife and I live in Eugene and are looking into buying an AS but haven't made the jump yet. We'd like to stop by, meet some of you and learn from your experience. When would be a good time ? Sat eve ?
Not sure if we will be camping but its a short drive from Eugene.
Thanks,
Dave

I wish this were a different weekend! The Oregon WBCCI year end rally is being held at Champoeg State Park at the same time. There will be 65 Airstreams in attendance, so that may be why there aren't as many coming to this one as there could be. Have a great time to all those that do attend, and hopefully we'll meet at another forums rally down the road.

yes, we did hear that that rally was going on the same weekend. If we did not already have plans to go see family on the coast then we would have tried to attend. we are not WBCCI members but are considering it.
Do you know the schedule yet for your unit rallys for the spring. Maybe we should start planning a forum rally for the spring.
