People will be arriving all day Friday for a laid back get together. Other than the pot luck, I don't know of any planned events. Hopefully, someone will do fix up training session on something, like window weatherstrip. Some of us, who don't have to work, will be arriving early Friday, others after work. For the pot luck, bring something that you do especially well. I have had some of the greatest food ever at the Forum Rallies I have attended. I would suggest calling the campground to see if there is space in our area. I suspect so, but the campground is the best source for information. Hope that you will be able to join us. It should be great fun.

Hi Joe,

Terrific! We do so hope to see you too. Yes, there are plenty of adjoining sites available. See the first post for contacts and details

I'm certain Lou will be able to expound on this. We have three sets of volunteer greeters between noon and two but do plan to arrive whenever it is convenient for you, we'll all be there eventually. The potluck will be on Saturday. We will be having a campfire with traditional s'mores. I've got the 5# Hershey bar to give us all our sugar fix for the month There are game courts, swimming, fishing, and boating on the premises. And we thought an open house tour of units would be fun. We tried to resist the urge to over structure activities as the key to this gathering is to get acquainted with one another.

As of yesterday the list of registered attendees is as follows:

J. Mickle
L. Woodruff
M. Fisher
M. Jameson
C. Baidinger
L. Patterson
S. Fixx
D. Bates
A. Neumann
Mc Intosh

We also have visitors coming in for the day, including Roger who perhaps with a little coaxing will be able to tell us everything about the locale.

This list is not complete but in doing a review of posts I have compiled the following;

Lou is making his to die for smoked chickens, Steve is bringing his wife's famous olive nut spread, veggies, and crackers, Lou Loudruff is making sloppy joes, Annie is adding the sweet potatoe casserole, Jim (apple 1) will have a supply of firewood, and the rest of us are taking a "guess what" approach to our offerings, LOL.

As Roger mentioned there is a plethera of sights and activities in the area. One of my favorites in Frankenmuth is the town square with with clock tower. You park centrally and have access to all as you take a walking tour about Frankenmuth. The bell tower and clock performance is a highlight and moving figures emerge from opening doors depicting the story of the Pied Piper along with the narrative. World famous chicken is served by servers in Bavarian costume. River Place has a double decker paddlewheel riverboat, waterfall, and a huge wooden covered bridge. A Magical Town will make a halogram of you and your party and place you in an extraordinary minature lifelike town setting, complete with movie theatre and movie showing. As you move along the exhibit enacted dramas appear and give you a peek at various "lives" within it's town walls. A-Maze-N Mirrors lets you find your way through a maze of mirrors and glass and is quite the experience! Free nightly laser shows and street performers add to the festival environment.

Also in the immediate area, Birch Run sports every outlet store you can think of and Bonner's Christmas Wonderland is the world's largest Christmas store illuminated nightly.

The specifics are as follows:
Covenant Hills Campground in the scenic metropolis of Otisville, MI. Their website is: www.covenanthills.org
When you register just tell Becky at Covenant Hills that you are registering for the AirstreamForums Rally. She will put you with the rest of us.
The Potluck will be held at the screened-in pavilion and I would think that sometime around 5-6 p.m. will be good.
We are planning on doing a little something during the Potluck so be sure that you will be in attendance. We will be receiving a visit from a special friend and I would hate to have any of you miss the festivities that go along with it.
Bring what you want for the potluck. Let's see if that works this time.
Right now it looks like ten of us. I had planned on 10-20 so we will be in good shape should anyone decide to attend at the last minute.

On a side note, please feel free to invite your family and friends to attend the event if they have SOB trailers. They are more than welcome to join us. Feel free to invite family and friends to come up for the day on Saturday too. It is a fifty mile drive from Detroit, so my mother, (former WBCCI), will be joining us to see if I act like the fool she knows I am!
Carol and I will be providing some small trinkets, one of them is REALLY awesome!
Please feel free to ask Carol or I anything that you may have a need to. I can be reached on my cell phone at: 586-604-6689 or at home: 586-997-0147.
I will be posting everyone's Forums username along with their REAL names shortly. I know most of yours as we have talked quite a bit on here.
I do hope to see all of you up there! It is going to be a blast!

Thanks for the wonderful pictures!
You ROCK!

Caravanning!

I almost forgot!
loudruff, sfixx and myself will be caravanning to the rally from my house. I am on the way up there if you live anywhere near Metro-Detroit.
We should be leaving sometime in the early to mid afternoon. No hurries, we will move as fast as the slowest one!
If you are interested in joining us, please let me know! We will wait for you.

Gonna do T-Shirts everyone!


One of the newest twists to the Otisville Rally will be the addition of T-shirts for all of those in attendance, children and adults!
These will be provided FREE OF CHARGE by Jeff Terry. Jeff is also a member of the forums. His username is jeffterry.
Please send me the sizes that you will need for EVERYONE in your camping party.
I will also have a few "door prizes" that I am sure that none of you will want to miss out on!
Things are REALLY getting interesting now!
We need the T-shirt sizes no later than this Thursday, August 11th! Hurry up and don't miss out on a freebie!

Hi Lou,

I talked to you through email several times(argosytrailer.com) My family will probably be attending the rally at Covenant Hills. I will be calling the campground tomorrow to try and get reservations. I know I saw a post that you need pictures and some other information, but I can't find it now. Let me know.
