Spring 2018 Rally

Starting early to be sure we have reserved the spot for Air Midwest Spring 2018 Rally, April 19 - 22. Jane & I have searched the internet and visited 4 candidate RV Parks within easy driving distance to Bentonville, AR. We found Big Elk Floats & Camping, Pineville, MO to be the best. Their website is www.bigelkfloatsandcamping.com (How do I insert a linK?)
This is 20 miles from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art as well as Amazeum, the children's discovery museum. Bentonville downtown is terrific too. It's also a short drive to Pea Ridge National Military Park, site of a major civil war battle.
Big Elk is holding sites A-30 through A-56 for us as well as the Pavilion. Register with Big Elk by http://www.airforums.com/forums/cale...=2018-4-19&c=1 Those who RSVP by March 20 will be included in the initial prize drawing for the item of choice.

More info to follow on this thread!

AirForum Rally attendees come in a wide age range. We are in our 70's.
There will be a group gathering on Thursday evening, trailer open house for those who want to allow others to see their home on wheels and then a group dinner with prize drawings on Saturday evening.
There are many interesting sites nearby for tours but having the Airstream scrapyard nearby is one we didn't know about. At the RV park float trips and fishing could be arranged.

We hope you will join us!
Jim

Whoops! The informal gathering with shared snacks will be Friday evening, not Thursday, but those of us arriving early might get together both nights to drink a brew and chat. The open house is normally late Saturday morning.

We would like to try something different for the Saturday meal unless you good folks prefer all potluck again. How about if we have catered barbecued pork & chicken, 2 sides, bread, tea & lemonade for about $10? Final catered items might vary but we could supplement these with "potluck" additional sides, salads, and deserts. Adult beverages would be for participants to provide for themselves.

Catering this meal would not be viable unless all share the cost. Children 12 & under should have a reduced plate price.
WHADDAYATHINK?

Jane & Jim

I think itís a great idea! The cost for two meats and option to bring a side are both very doable!
