Next Motorhome Rally(s)

after re-reading the other thread, I have compiled this.

Mid-October Fall Rallys
----------------------------
Weekends are 10/5-6, 10/12-13, 10/19-20, 10/26-27
#1 East Coast/Central - in either Cherokee Land Yacht Harbor (OK) or Arkansas
#2 West Coast - proposed for Land Yacht Harbor in Lacey, WA


Annual Spring Motorhome Rallys
----------------------------------------
Southeast
April 4,5, & 6th, 2003 at Top of Georgia
April 2,3,& 4th, 2004 at Mystic Springs.

West Coast
April 4,5, & 6th, 2003 at TBD
April 2,3,& 4th, 2004 at TBD

The farther out we set the dates, the better the attendance will be! Maybe we should set a goal of 5/7 to have dates set.

Comments Please..............

p.s. We welcome ALL Airstream/Argosy products! I'm sure the newer models would get good looks also!

Thank you Fred, for getting us organized! Speaking for myself, I need all the organization I can get.

I will leave the October rally decision to others. It is very difficult for Brett to be away from his company for an entire week. We would need at least that much time for a rally that far from us, so I doubt we could attend.

The Spring rally plans look great, and conveniently close.

Seattle would have the choice of a west coast rally potentially at the Land Yacht Harbor in Lacey, WA or the Oklahoma fall rally.

What is the weather like in Seattle in October and April?

Where are all the west coasters? I saw several say they wanted something on the west coast, I proposed a site, and very little response. Any alternatives to Lacey, WA?

I thought we'd do the fall and spring rallys on the same weekends but different locations. That's just a suggestion.

Talking rallys

I hope we can get a reasonable forecast for who would want to attend a rally- and where- so we can move it if necessary to accomodate those who live closer. For instance if there is very little western interest, we might as well go for Mystic - or Cumberland - or TOG .
If we do get the interest from our western compatriots then we could plan on the Ok or Ark - locations.
4 of the 7 Motorhomes at Mystic were Southeasterners. one mid-west- 2 Texans. I would also like to "convoy" a fewof us if we end up with a way to put that together. That would be quite a sight!

Re: rallys

I plan to pick up our motorhome in Broken Arrow, OK in late May then check out the Cherokee Land Yacht Harbor before we head home. By September we will be un-tethered from our Mission Viejo, CA home so we can plan to be in OK at about any time. If nothing unexpected happens we plan to attend the fall rally.

I have to contact the welding shop and approve the final design of the "Orange Cone and Barrel Killer" Then all that is left to do is weld it on the front of the Argosy!

The sacrifices I make for the rest of you.......

I will have to look at the calendar and see if there is even a remote possibility of taking off the time necessary to go to the proposed rally in OK. I will know more in a few months.

Of course a decision needs to be made as to what weekend it will be held on??

Just talked to the trustee at Cherokee Land Yacht Harbor.
They would welcome a Airstream Motorhome Rally.
(Which would be a first for them)
He said they could accommodate up to 20 Motorhomes, but they would be spread out over 2 loops of the park.
The month of October is wide open at this point.
Then he asked again "and they all would be Airstream Motorhomes, right?"
I am not sure if the park will be suitable for our plans. Hopefully we will get a feedback from Dienst1, after he does the scout trip.
I was hoping to see at least 15-20 MH's at the Cherokee20 rally.
We drove 750 miles to Mystic Springs and enjoyed every minute of it. This rally would not be a quick weekend get away. I am talking about planning your life around it.
Who would at this point consider participating in the biggest Airstream MH rally on the planet?

I will not know about the October rally until September.
I MAY be able to make the TOG spring rally.
I will probably make the 2004 Mystic Springs rally since it's so close to me.
My life revolves around the kids sports.

Don't plan around me! I think it's more important to set dates that please enough and get as many people as possible. My thought is spring and fall events.

It is a little disturbing that Cherokee Land Yacht Harbor can only handle 20 MH's. Maybe they are thinking we need 50amp service. Most, if not all, of the Classic MH's use 30amp service. I think Mystic has a limited number of 50amp sites. (those bright green boxes )

They may not even have 50 amp service. The impression I got, is that the Cherokee LYH is primarily an Airstream community (houses) with accommodations for a few travelers.
