Bill; This is a Northern Illinois WBCCI rally. Not related to Moraine View. Jack has NOT posted anything on June MV.

WBCCI Northern Illinois Spring Rally

The Northern Illinois Airstream Club of the WBCCI would like to invite Airstreamers from Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin to join us for our May Rally at Thomson Causeway at Thomson, IL.
We will be getting together May 4-6th at the Thomson Causeway Army Corps of Engineers Park located on the Mississippi River. The park has 50 amp electric sites, with accessible water, toilets and showers. We will be in the River Birch (RIVE) loop sites 79-97.

These 19 sites are known to fill quickly so if you're interested plan on booking a site early.

Park details and booking are at:https://www.recreation.gov/camping/t...O&parkId=73445

Hope you can make it out this weekend. Looking forward to seeing old faces and making new friends.

Just a quick update. Just 3 months out before the Rally at Thomson.
Its February, 4 degrees above zero tonight, and people are contemplating Spring on the River.
Over half the sites have already been taken!
If you're planning on attending its time to think about booking a site.
Let us know if you're coming by posting here or on the calendar page.


Tom.

I just saw a weather forecast and there is a possibility of MAJOR spring flooding on the upper Mississippi. This will depend on the melting of the snow pack in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Watch here for updates.

One Month Out

One month away from our May Rally and there are only four sites remaining in the loop. If you're interested in attending you can reserve at:
https://www.recreation.gov/camping/m...O&parkId=73445

I've checked the NOAA website for the flooding forecast on the Upper Mississippi and at this point they indicate the flood stages during the Spring melt should be normal. While not great for camping, the longer it stays cold in Wisconsin and Minnesota the better for normal water levels during the Rally.
For Friday night there will be Sloppy Joes and sides for dinner. For dessert Dana would like everyone to bring their favorite store-bought cookies. Saturday night dinner still needs to be determined. Breakfast will be provided Saturday and Sunday mornings.
We would like a headcount the help plan the meals so please post here or on the Rally page so we know who's coming.

See you all soon,
Tom and Sue
