2010 Moraine View Rally
 
Just a thought that if you were looking at your calendar for next year, the 8th annual Moraine View Rally will occur June 11, 12 and 13th. That's the second weekend in June and a week after the Airstream bash up at Jackson Center.

We may not have the plant tour in our activities, but we do have an Airstream tour (of our own trailers), campfires, the traditional movies, hot dog reception, and pot luck dinner on Saturday night.

So keep us in mind, pencil in the date. We will get the process rolling early next spring.

Airstream Forums Moraine View Midwest Rally back again for year # 8! June 2010.

See posts 16 and 17 for reservation information! http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...tml#post811377

We are planning to be at both the april and may unit rallies.

Lily&Me 01-12-2010 06:09 AM

Great! We have a grandson birthday the weekend of the April one, so will not be able to get to that one. The May rally is right after the Louisiana Roadtrip, but we're planning on making the drive, anyway, to see everyone.

Bring your Dutch Oven. :)

Hi folks. I'm going to be calling the folks at Moraine View for this year's rally and we may try something different this year. As you know there are campsites close to the lake. Sites P14-P23 are on the lake. Just across from them are sites F1-F9 which are much like a wagon wheel with back in sites.

What I'm thinking of doing, dependent upon availability is making the upfront payment to the Moraine folks to hold these sites. Silvertwinkie a.k.a. Eric and I will front the money to hold the sites. That means that we would need you to pay us for the deposits rather than you making the reservations to the park folks. I'll check with the park folks to find out whether you will pay them the balance upon arrival or whether I will be required to do that.

Bottom line, our attendance has fluctuated over the years with the high water mark being around 45 units. I'm pretty much comfortable that there will be a minimum of 20 units showing up so I'm willing to take the risk on the reservation for holding 20 sites. Once I get commitment from you on those first 20 sites and your deposit on the sites that I'm holding, those who want to come will need to contact the park and make your own reservations. I'm confident that the park will do their best to keep you close to the main group. Keep in mind however, that this area of the park is more popular than where we normally have been. So the closer you are to June in making your reservation, the more likely you will be in being separated from us. Note you can make reservations for specific sites if they are open.

So the question at hand is whether you all would like being down by the lake, or whether you want to stay in the area where we have been over the past 7 years.

Check out the campground map for the locations we are talking about. I'll call next Monday based on what feedback I get, and we will let the Moraine folks know where we'd like to go.

My vote is for the lake sites. If I remember correctly, they're very nice sites and it will keep the group in a more compact area rather than spread all the way up and around the corner.

cosmotini 02-11-2010 09:07 PM

That would be a nice change! Do they have electric or are they more primitive sites?

jcanavera 02-11-2010 09:19 PM

The sites are electric.

Jack; I would be interested in one of the sites P19 thru P23.
I have a front bed; so this way I would have something to look at rather than someones back side.
Thanks, and keep me posted.

We will be there, and like the idea of the lakefront sites, too.

Count us in. :)
