I like the idea of a form. Then I don't have to think too hard about what I am supposed to say.(not that I want you all to do my thinking for me).
Quick intro for those who didn't meet us at last years rally, Jean and I are from the Toronto area and have had our Airstream for two years now and love it. After years of tenting it is so nice to enjoy getting away even (or should I say) especially when it rains.

I have been to Spain and I was very disappointed when I saw that it is not purple. It is actually like the rest of the globe....green.

The form is just to verify if you are coming or not. If you want T-shirts or not. What size T's you will need. How many. It will have the price of the T's on them too.

I have also been asked to include my smoked chickens on the form too. If you want a smoked bird it will be done at cost. I will cook them all before heading out to the rally.

I am also planning on including a comments area that will allow all of you to put down your suggestions for the rally.

There is minimal cost involved in planning the rally. Last year a few of us sucked up the costs. This year we are having to pass it on to the attendees.

Door prizes will now be raffle prizes. This will be done to ONLY cover the cost of the prizes and tickets. I plan on selling the tickets starting the Friday of the rally. Any suggestions for nominal raffle prizes will be greatly welcomed.

If you plan on making a donation, like Steph and Al have done, please let me know. I am planning on giving all who donate something in return. I do plan on including beanies for all who donate. If that is not a dumb enough way to spend your donation, I will find something even sillier!

I am planning on giving out printed awards for the following categories:
  • Longest haul
  • Oldest trailer
  • Trailer with the fewest items functional (no fair breaking things ahead of time on your trailer to win).
  • Best potluck dish, (based upon voting)
  • Newest trailer
  • Most party lights
  • Most pink flamingoes
None of the awards will be worth anything other than bragging rights! Make sure you display your award prominently at home. Maybe on your mantle for all to see!

I was going to include an award for "Being Most Like Lou" but Candie said that should come with a free psychiatric evaluation and not an award!

Tell me what you all think!

PS I am trailerless right now as my brother has it in Kentucky on vacation! YIKES!

Hey Lou,
Went to Ottawa for three days with our trailer. Had a blast!!! Just to make you feel jealous seeing as how you don't have yours.
Do we need to pay for campsites ahead of time or only when we show up?
The form????
Al

Aw Al...
Now I am gonna have to rig the raffles so you do not win at all....
We would like to get the money for the campsites ahead of time so John and I are not stuck with paying a minimum. Plus, it will make it easier for everyone else.
I will be working on the form tomorrow, seeing as how us Yanks have a holiday, I have free time!
Anyone have any suggestions for the form or other ideas?
Seems like everyone is awfully quiet out here.....
I know you are all reading the thread, I have "Lou-vision"... Sorta like "Smell-a-vision" only different.

Just a note to all of you that know Larry and Lou.
Lou's father has not been in good health lately and that has been a strain on the Woodruff family. Please, keep them and Lou's father in your prayers.

Lou - you have my every thought in prayer.

Hey Lou,
I'm heading out on another rally tomorrow evening so if I don't see the form in the next day I will have to fill it out in a week or so.
Really looking forward to all those boxes to fill in.
I suspect the most important one will be "who is bringing Canadian beer?"
Al

Once John gets all the details I will put together a form that will include the T-shirt ordering information.
I am sorry I have not been online much lately. I am doing a engineering consulting gig after work. Making some extra dough to save up for the Minuet's paint job this fall!
Yes, the forms will have a check box for "Bringing Canadian beer"!

I figure I will have a blank section with nothing but boxes so you can check off whatever you want in that area of the form!
Also, I will have a spot to check off if you are bringing a pink beanie.
Oh, this is also a non-beret rally!

Hey hunny, how come all your posts say things like "my camper" and "my fridge"?
