Edie: That's a hearty looking button, with an image large enough that even I can recognize it (and a Forum member) at a distance. Nice job!

Based on past International Rallys, July 4th will be filled with planned activities as Shari mentioned in her post; but there will be no official activities for the general membership on July 5th. July 5th is typically the date that the primary membership parking areas must be vacated -- it is not unusual for the electricity and water service to disappear shortly after dawn on July 5th -- I have not parked in the 30-AMP section before so do not know if the disappearing utilities will apply there as well.

Fred - I'm glad you like the button. I will have a bunch of them at the trailer where I'm staying for Forum members to stop by and pick up in case I miss you. I will be at 31082 in the general 30 amp section.

Regarding the dates of the rally, I have to leave the 2nd or 3rd in order to be back at work on the 5th. I just wanted to have the correct dates on the button.

So, are we all getting excited?

Shari - do you have an idea for a happy hour or potluck time and place? Will we have some type of a Forum bulletin board with info and announcements or schedule changes for our members? Where will it be? Parking area or convention center?

It looks like most of the folks listed are going to be in the VAC area...I have never been to an International before - what do you suggest? Schedule-wise is a particular night better (freed-up) than another? I know there is a VAC Happy Hour every night...but I don't know what the evenings (dinner hour and beyond) have in store...can someone who's been before give any insight? Kevin, Edie, Herb, etc.

I'd be happy to host 'whatever' at Maxwell, 1824...the DenCO Unit will have a bulletin board (whereever these things go)...or I can leave a message at my trailer. Or I'll have my laptop and can post it here...

I vote for a true 'potluck' whatever shows up is what we get ~ or BYOM (Bring Your Own Meat) and a sidedish/dessert to share ~ I have a RoadTrip Grill which is pretty big...the only conflict I will have is our Unit potluck night...but I'm not sure of the day of it either...I will know before the Opening Day though ~

The unit bulletin boards will be at the arena, but I think that having the bulletin board in the parking area may be better because the arena is so far away. Some people may never even leave the parking area and go to the arena. I would borrow our unit's bulletin board and bring it, but it is out of reach at this time. Of course, we could just tape messages to Maxell's windows...

Just my experience...there are LOTS of happy hours every night. So anything planned will conflict with something. You just need to pick a night and go for it (of course as long as it doesn't interfere with your unit's potluck). I would plan the event early in the rally in case people want to get together a second time.

A potluck sounds fun but takes a lot more preparation than a happy hour. Tables for putting the buffet on can be hard to bring. I won't be cooking since I am staying with a friend, but I am an expert at picking up some really yummy food:

Evening entertainment usually starts at 7:00 or 7:30 I think. And you must be present to win if your name is called for a door prize. I understand that the drive from the parking area to the arena is pretty significant, so a potluck probably needs to be over by 6:00.

2005 International...I'm going, are you?

Greetings Shari and Edie!

I agree the idea of either a potluck or happy hours sounds great! As a member of both VAC and Free Wheelers, I can attest to the fact that there is little hope avoiding conflicts with other happy hours/potlucks as many of the Intra-Clubs have daily happy hours (typically 4:00 p.m.) -- I know that both the VAC and Free Wheelers have daily happy hours at the usual 4:00 p.m. time if this year follows the usual pattern.

In the case of a potluck, in the heat and humidity that are likely to be present, it may be difficult to find a shaded area for the event. There is a WBCCI tent at the main parking site that can be reserved for Unit or Intra-Club activities -- I don't know whether it would be available for this purpose. I know that the humidity here in the Mid-Mississippi River Valley (about 225 miles East of Springfield) has been terrible for the past two weeks -- yesterday, at 5:00 p.m., we had 85 degrees with 83% relative humidity.

I am in the count-down phase -- will be leaving to joing the Wagon Wheels Caravan (already in-progress) first thing Tuesday morning!

Looking forward to the gathering in Springfield!

Kevin

I wonder if it would be better to find a local restaurant where we could meet? (Read air conditioning) A number of places in Lansing had coupons in the rally guide.

With the expected heat and humidity, I may not attend many happy hours. I'm not sure how happy I'll be after melting.

For those who may be attending their first WBCCI rally in Springfield, let me give a hint on happy hours. You will be welcomed with open arms, plan to bring a chair, a drink, and a snack to share. The snack can be as easy as a can of nuts or as elaborate as you like. If your drink is alcoholic, please be discreet. Pour your beer into a cup or use a koozie, etc.

2005 International...I'm going, are you?

Greetings Edie!

The idea of meeting at a restaurant sounds good to me -- there have always been a tremendous number of interesting places to eat near the International Rally site. My favorite Springfield area eatery would make for a fun location (Lambert's Cafe ), but it wouldn't be the most conducive to visiting as it is generally a very jubilant environment (similar in some ways to a Cracker Barrel's noise level) with the "ever-present-danger" of being beaned by a flying home-made yeast roll.

I am preparing to be near melt-down most evenings as humidity is the name of the game in this region on a daily basis at this time of year. We were near melt-down during most, if not all, of the International Rally in Dayton (1999), and it is one of the reasons that I didn't waste any time signing up for the 30-AMP section.

Kevin

If a restaurant gathering seems desirable, let me know an approximate party size and I could make some suggestions.

If we all park our trailers near each other in the 30-amp section, perhaps we can open the doors and air-condition a portion of the rally grounds!

Either that, or I can bring my inflatable swimming pool and we can take turns in the "cold tub" cooling off.

Good points about the heat/humidity...I'll probably be a mess used to our dry Colorado climate! A restaurant sounds fine...

So who wants to take the lead on finding a suitable place to meet? I don't really want to be 'in charge' of this, I just started the thread. And besides, I am being pulled umpteen different directions during the rally with commitments, so I'm not sure I could committ to a specific date and time early enough to reserve a restaurant for our group.

So...whoever want's to plan the gathering...go for it! Those that can make it, will...the rest can keep an eye out for those buttons and hopefully all our paths will cross.

Any more attendees??? Still have room on the list!

Shari
