OKay, Brock and I came up witha a good idea. We should have 2 rallys, one in April at Jackson center, the last weekend in April. Then another one in Mackniac the last weekend in Aug. She will have her AS by then, what does everyone think, then everyone is happy

Okay, myself and Steph talked, and we almost got this thing going. We would like to have 2 rallys. One would be either April 24-26, or June 6-8 near Jackson Center. If you would like to take the tour at the Airstream Plant, it will take place at 2pm on Friday.Im looking at a couple diffrent campgrounds in the area. We need some help on desiding the date, so pleace, feedback would be great. Then we want to have a rally in Mackinac the 2nd or 3rd weekend in September. There is plenty to do, the ferry will be running, so there will be plenty of time for us to go to the island. What does everyone think? Feedback on dates and everything would be great!

OUESTION: Are these two proposed rallys both women's outtings? Please clarify your intent for each proposal.

Friday, June 20 is the official Summer Solstice date for 2008. The 2007 SSR was held in the JC area and a tour of the AS factory was enjoyed by all.
Since this is the SSR thread and I would like to see those plans continue and finalized so any women interested may make any necessary arrangements enabeling them to attend.

An up north autumn rally sounds wonderful. It needs have it's own title on it's own thread. Also, those wanting to attend will be able to add their input.

Ok, I guess i dont understand whe reason you put the June 20th comment in there, were you saying it would be a better date or something?

My intent is to have a good time, and have them Womens rallys. Im not one to make rules on camping. I just want to have a good time.

I have had many people that didnt even go to last years rally liking the idea of going to Jackson Center, i wasnt trying to make last years rally like this one, I just thought it would be a neat place to go. Anyone who wants to comment, feel free.

While I was unable to go last year, I thought Summer Solstice was chosen and would be an ongoing unifier of this Rivette Rally. Yes? No? Knowing how cold it is on Lake Superior until midJune of so, is late April warm enough for camping at Mackinac? Sounds brrrrrrry to me! (Take loads of firewood and cases of Baileys!) Just trying to keep up with the posts here while thinking of our summer planning. ~G

Wow its great that the discussion has picked back up again, so glad sisters are chiming in, haven't heard from Jamie or Paula either...soon I hope!

So it sounds like there's a couple of things going on...this thread is reflecting the process of rally planning isn't it, hard to keep track, help me am I clear as mud?

1. Laura has some cool ladies rallies planned she's got another thread (we can tow it women's rally) and she's mentioning them here too. I understand the latest is her September rally which is at Mackinaw City (Lakes Huron and Michigan meet there, Mackinac Island is there too.)

2. Some folks are thinking summer solstice weekend is a good thing to stick to for rivettes. The date with the WBCCI International would cause a conflict for some potentially "new" lady towers to join us.

3. Places mentioned have been Frankenmuth(Suz I'll go if you do! ), Canada (Sharon are the authorities still watchin for Nina? ), Niagara, etc..

Personally I'm up for rallying, I'll go most anywhere but my limits are that I am a stay at home mom right now and I can't do longer than a weekend unless I bring the family. I'm happy to join up so you all just let me know where and when and I'll be there with some bread and food

ding dong.....If I can I will and if there is a will I can

Lots of ideas and dates now floating around.

From what I can see - we are all in agreement that the emphasis is Rivettes, and Fun.

The first Rally was in the Summer Solstice - but it did pose issues for a few and and the International and will always unless one changes the date.

I did not think that the Summer Solstice was set in stone - but rather a neat name for that Rally that set the pace to name future rallies like so many others - special to either the time of year, an annual event or the georgraphical significance.

The places suggested thus far....

Mackinac, MI
BlueGrass Horse Country- Virginia or Kentucky nothing specific
Niagara Falls - USA / Niagara Falls CAN
Jackson Centre, Ohio
Missouri - Route 66

The dates - all sound great - I am sure each of us will have some sort of conflict with either or, or both or what ever date is suggested. So it is a matter of choice for all.

I would love to say I can committ but I can not. There is just too much up in the air for me right now - like will we have time to finish my trailer to get her traveling again. Money is always at the forefront - but as a good friend once said....there will always be bills to pay, but opportunity only knocks once (well something to that effect anyway)

I will take a tour of the plant any time - it was great!!! But this time I might bring a small dust pan and sweeper so that I could clean the floor and get all the buck rivets I need

If the shoe fits....we are planning a sport model shower stall purchase - so an April time frame would be great for me to kill two birds with one stone. The facilities there are nice - but not too much in the way of entertainment close by. But if laura you are thinking of a Campground instead of staying at the Factory???

We are going to an RV show this weekend and will be doing the measuring up to see if it will work So we should know next week on that idea.

The Mac - is a great location - I have been to Sault Ste Marie Ontairo and Sudbury, Northbay and traveled extensively in Norther Ontario - the terrain and geogarphy is identical to the state side - it is a spot of Heaven - but you all know to get to Heaven is a LONG drive - but as they say the DRIVE is worth it. This for some would entail several extra days - but for people like myself the drive would not be the issue or the time - as I do not work and distance and gas prices are in my opinion irrelavent. They are just facts of life.

However it is the timing of that one that I will not know if it will work for me until the end of January. It is Peter and I's 25th and my Parents 50th Wedding Anniversary - and we are just starting our preliminary plans for a Brunch Boat Cruise late August early September - so not sure. If the Cruise does not happen - then September 10th weekend - would also be an issue as I am sure hopping that the Hubby remembers the 25th of all Anniversaries thus far and I expect to be anywhere that does not involve my house, my parents house, or a trailer!!! and preferably not in Canada or the US!!! if you all get my drift

Love to see you all but a girl has to have some priorities. The fact that I do intend on spending another 25 year with him - maybe.....

~ G - is there anything that would be really Kewl around your neck of the woods?

So good going Laura and Steph - give it a week to let people chip, chim in and then just set the date and the general location - then we can all sort of help with the logistics of the venues.

Great Input, thank you. I just remembered we have the Tin Can Tourist rally the 3rd weekend in September. So I guess i could only go if it was the 2nd weekend, if i will be attending

Sharon, you probably don't remember that old romantic song that goes..."Fly me to the moon...." Is THAT what Peter has planned for the 25th? Really cooool Rivettes is in, "summer solstice" is expendable, but was great for a first year's theme, our regional biggest attraction is the Ozarks/Branson/Lakes area but that is already featured in spring and fall forums rallies sponsored by Steve/SoldierMedic. You can find his threads on those rallies. It's fun to follow this thread! ~G

Hey gals looks what's cooking! All great ideas so I hope there are a lot of womens rallies coming up. Regardless of the time of year I think we can dress accordingly. Cool weather camping may be nippy but it really slows down the bugs. I seem to be a real magnet for asking for bites. Looks like we need to start some new threads. 2007 was a great year now on to 2008! Ring it in right.
