July 21-23
Aug 4-6
Aug 11-13
I just noticed you added a poll to the top of this thread. In looking those six weekends over, and realizing that we are already camping on three of those six weekends, our participation may be questionable at all (gotta spend an occasional weekend at home), however, I limited my vote to the Aug 4-6 weekend in the poll (rather than the three I previously noted), because that might be the best fit around our other events.

So much to do - so little time.

John and Harold have done a lot of legwork on this. Thanks guys!
I would like to do the Aug. 4-6 gig myself. The July one will be right around the same time as the MIS Indy car race.
As for the campground, I like the sounds, and looks, of Irish Hills Kampground.
Did Harold check out that one too?
I would like to narrow this down to two campgrounds.
I am thinking KC Campground and Irish Hills Kampground.
What do the rest of you think?
Carol sure has been awfully quiet lately..... Hmmmm.....

I just hope you and Lorrie can make it. The girls sure love Lorrie. Of course, Joe scares them!

That area would work out real well for our bunch, they said their smallest site will fit a 32 ft trailer.
I have changed my mind. I want three campgrounds now!
Has anybody found out anything about Totem Pole having the "circle" available the first weekend in July?

So that I know what's up, I think I see, so far, if we do this in August (4-6, hopefully):

pattersontoo
wheel interested
HDS
ITOWAIR
Ayrstrm2
Tin Sista
JeffTerry
HappyCampers
Wagon Girl
Overlander66?

Loudruff looks like they can't make the first two weeks of August, but that's looking like the sweet spot for everyone. Can they change their plans?

Let's start getting a site count, so I have some leverage with which to get a good deal.

John
Potential Campgrounds for Rally
Add a few to the list of potentials:
Simcheck
Bates
Steve Fixx (sfixx on here)
Marvin and Annie Fisher (happycampers on here)
McIntosh (not sure if they are available)
John Truitt (ask Kirk and Beth aka wagongirl)

I think Carol was going to pick up her new Airstream today, but I'm not sure where from - possibly from the factory in JC or some dealer somewhere.

I haven't checked out Irish Hills Kampground, we drove by but we couldn't get in. It an old KOA, lots of trees, can't tell you more right now. We're tied up for the rest of the week, until at least Sunday, so I can't say when we can try again. I don't know the schedule at MIS, so I don't know about any conflicts with the races, I do know that they have a big NASCAR race mid June, and one mid August. The Indy car race in July doesn't draw as well, but I don't know how it affects camping in the Irish Hills. they camp in farmers fields for the NASCAR races, its one huge animal farm for a week. Sounds like John is on top of things, I'll try to find out more Sunday or Monday.

Al,
Would love to have you guys again. We need a huge show of support for the Canadian Chapter of the LPPI!
Maybe you can talk Peter and Sharon, (GT6921 on here), into making the trip too? Who knows....
Would love to have you guys.

John is on top of things like I have never seen someone on top of things before!
I am not picky about where we go. I just need someplace for the girls to play. Unlike their dad, they are not happy sitting around and bugging people. Oh, wait... they are....

Thanks. For the next two days, however, I'm on top of getting a rental unit ready for a new tenant so I may be a little quiet here. But I have made contact with several other members about attending and I have a probably can't from Sfixx and a would-like-to from a west coast transplant, TallZach.

That is too bad about Steve. I was going to put him right next to Carol again! (Inside joke).
I think we need to nail down a weekend now.
I would really like to avoid MIS the weekend of July 28th. The poll was not the best idea I have ever had. If people could reply on this thread to say "Yes" or "No" for the weekend of Aug. 4th that would be cool.
As for the events:
Jeff Terry is willing to donate more "stuff" for the raffle. If you remember last year's rally no one went away empty-handed. Everyone "wins" something. These are not little things either. We had a lot of good stuff.
The potluck will be on Saturday, just like last year. If everyone remembers I do a REALLY mean smoked chicken. I did four last year and this year I may have to do six! Everything was wonderful at the dinner. I had some of EVERYTHING!
The evening fires will be the same. They seem to be better at night for some reason! Also, if I have more than one beer people seem to like me better for some strange reason.
As always, everyone is invited to have an "open house". I loved this because I did not stay at my site all weekend. I also got to eat and drink everything everyone else brought, (Candie thanks all of you for that).
I am also planning on doing some "activities" and award "prizes" for the winners of these. It will not be anything too invovled as everyone knows I like easy!
Give us your ideas for things to do or if you have something to add for the rally.
Carol did signs for everyones front windows last year. I still have mine. Signs this year will be another rally staple. If someone else would like to help with the design or the printing let me or Carol know.
John is now the new LPPI VP of Geography! Harold is now the LPPI VP of Exploration! Contragulations guys. It seems like everyone in the LPPI is a VP though so do not let it go to your head.
