WDCU Capitol Kickoff Rally - April 28-May 1, 2011
 
Hi everyone! We are busy planning the Capitol Kickoff Rally for April 28-May 1, 2011.

Camping details:

We have reserved a number of campsites at the Capitol KOA campground. This campground is conveniently located near Baltimore, DC, and Annapolis, and is nicely wooded and shaded. They have a pavilion for us to use.

Full hookup, 30 amp: $52.20/night
Full hookup, 30/50 amp: $60.30/night

Capitol KOA
768 Cecil Avenue North
Millersville, MD 21108
(410) 923-2771, 1-800-562-0248

To book your site at the group rate, tell them "WDCU Airstream." If that doesn't work, the sites are booked in my name ("RJ Marquette"), though you'll pay the campground directly. The campground has closed for the season, and will reopen March 1, but they have a service that will allow you to make reservations over the winter.

The registration form will be available in a couple days. :)

I have an entry for it on the rally calendar here.

About the rally:

We are planning a catered dinner, a potluck dinner, and some other food goodies. There will be games and lots of fun times. And don't forget Happy Hour!

Of course, the campground is close to Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; and Annapolis, MD, and there are always things to do, even if it's just walking around Inner Harbor, the National Mall, or downtown Annapolis. Some events:
We hope to see you all there!

Skater 01-16-2011 05:22 PM

Okay, so I didn't give my email address above. Just drop me a PM on here if you don't mind. :) (I'll have the registration form in the next few days, I promise.)

Skater 01-18-2011 07:55 PM

Here is the registration form for the rally!

Skater 03-02-2011 07:06 AM

Hi everyone! Less than two months to go to the rally. Just a reminder to get the registrations in ASAP. :)

TWaugh 03-16-2011 02:57 PM

Only six weeks to the CKR.

I stopped by the Capitol KOA today to check it out and the office staff said we already have twenty sites registered. :) If you were thinking of attending this rally why not go ahead and make you reservation? :flowers: It's gonna be fun!

Frank's Trailer Works 03-16-2011 03:16 PM

I have a question. Is this a WBCCI rally or is it just the fine friendly folks at the WDCU having this? Are non members invited is what I am getting at. I know the park is open to all, but the rally, is it open to anyone is what I am asking.

20 sites is great! I note, however, we only have 13 registration forms! Hmmmmmmm.... Send in those forms please! :)

Hi, Frank! The rally is a WBCCI rally and it is not a buddy rally.

Frank's Trailer Works 03-16-2011 09:07 PM

Really sorry to hear that. Hope you all have a danny time. Would had liked to come.

Any Airstreamer's Cub rally, yep you can come. EVERYONE is welcome.

Hi Frank,

I have camped with you when you were a WBCCI and WDCU member and when you were not. You don't need to belong to a club to go camping and run into some friends ;)

munimula 03-17-2011 10:50 AM

Nice reply Sonia.

As an aside Frank, the Watchung NJ Unit is hosting a buddy rally the same weekend at Pine Hill CG just west of Allentown PA. Any RV'er is most welcome to join in our Unit's fun that weekend.

See...http://watchungunit.org/April2011-coupon.pdf

The Watchung Unit's buddy rallies are traditionally our April and August events.

Sonia 03-17-2011 03:54 PM

Dave,

On our rally list, we forgot to identify the "buddy" rallies early on, so CKR was one of the ones that was missed. But as you know, we welcome anyone to our rallies! We like to eat, drink and have fun!

And I do miss some of Frank's creations for Happy Hours!

BTW, th Installation rally, which will be in Jim Thorpe, beautiful Poconos, is a buddy rally.

Sonia

nick6930 03-17-2011 05:05 PM

Yeh I am in the same boat, it is a public campground. It is not as if you are showing up to something that is on someones yard. Come, drink and be merry (or John) whatever you choose. The only thing would be an organized meal, if any, but no loss IMO. It is all about the Happy Hour!!!!

I am surprised to learn that it is not a buddy rally this year. It is a shame but such is life.

Sonia 03-17-2011 08:31 PM

Nick,

It was on oversight! sorry! But we would love to see you two (2.5) at CKR! I bet you Jill looks good with a big tummy :o

Ans like you said, the Happy Hours are much better than the planned dinners.

Sonia

Frank's Trailer Works 03-18-2011 04:41 AM

It's just as well. I will be coming back from a 12 day trip just before this rally. I thought it a chance to see some of the DCU people I have not seen in a while. Even though I could hang out in the same campground and it is all about happy hour, I think it would be down right weird to not be a part of things. I will take a pass. Good luck have fun.

nick6930 03-18-2011 08:13 AM

Sonia,

There is nothing to apologize for. We are members and are attending. I completely understand that things happen and appreciate all you guys doing all the work. All I meant about "it being a shame" was that CBR was a good opportunity for non-members to see the WDCU and I just assumed CKR would be as well. I forget about the paperwork aspect with WBCCI.

Sorry again if it came across wrong. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Ruby4980 03-18-2011 04:51 PM

I'll be there
 
Just made my reservation, I'll send in the form tomorrow. Frank - just come and have a good time! This is WDCU we're talking about, there will be no weirdness.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Sonia 03-18-2011 08:20 PM

It will be nice seeing you Deborah. This warm weather is making me wish that CKR was already here! I can't wait to go camping again.

Skater 03-26-2011 02:11 PM

Well, we're about a month away! This is a great campground, and a great location, with convenient access to Baltimore, DC, and Annapolis. Come out and have fun with us!

A Few Reasons to Attend a WDCU Rally
 
We still have a few sites available, so if you considering attending why not go ahead and sign up. We always try our best to have a good time.

Here is a short video with a few reasons why you might want to think about attending one of the WDCU rallies this year.


TWaugh 03-27-2011 10:12 AM

If you’re in the area and want to stop by for “Happy Hour” or you just want to chat and socialize with the group you’ll be more than welcome. If you’re not a member, remember, any campground where the WDCU goes, you can always park with your own reservations a few spots down the row..........;)
We seem to attract other Airstreamers when we get together for fun.:lol:

WDCU - Washington D.C. Unit (#170)

Sonia 03-28-2011 08:43 AM

Tom,

Speaking of Happy Hour, arw you going to make your famous, oh so delicious, brownies?

TWaugh 03-28-2011 12:29 PM

I'll keep makin em as long as folks keep eatin em.:D

It's the magic ingredients. :sorcerer:

Skater 03-28-2011 02:31 PM

Erica is working on a cookie baking contest for the rally. I'll post the flyer for it later. :)

TWaugh 03-28-2011 05:04 PM

But how you gonna know whether I used frozen Otis Spunkmeyer or some other brand. :brows:

Not that I would do that:angel:

Maybe the mixing has to be done in front of others as a group entertainment. :lol:

:rofl: Erica's comment: "That would be entertaining!"

The easier way is to simply ask for the recipe. Flyer attached! :)

Sonia 03-29-2011 08:22 PM

Will Erica be making her buckeye cookies? Those were so good!

Can I volunteer to be a judge on the cookie contest? A few years ago, I had a great time judging the wonderful drinks that some of our WDCU-ers made! They are so creative!

We're all going to be judges - it's going to be a vote. :)

I don't think Erica's Buckeyes would count as cookies. But perhaps I can get her to make some. :)

TWaugh 03-31-2011 01:24 PM

OK RJ, I have to admit with the inclement weather we are having here in the Capitol region it was probably a good idea to move the rally to the latter part of April.

Of course I say that now and next weekend (which had been our target weekend for years) will probably be in the 70's and sunny.:lol:

FlamingoBabe 03-31-2011 01:44 PM

...All this talk about food is making me hungry!! :) Can not wait to see everyone!!

Sonia 03-31-2011 03:25 PM

I am thinking of going on a diet just so that i can taste all the goodies and wash them down with something cold ;)

Yeah, right now we look like geniuses. :) I'm going to stick with that. :)

26 days and Counting
 
:clap:Only 26 days left till CKR begins. Have you registered yet? :D

Skater 04-04-2011 06:37 AM

Rally attendees: Yesterday, I sent an email to the rally attendees that I have with the agenda and cookie contest rules. If you didn't get that email, please let me know!

We must thank the Goulds for that one - I am so excited, and I hope I have the time to go that day. (For those not in the know: we're getting a tour of the tower at National Airport! :w00t2: )

Yeah, that's pretty much how we feel. We tossed around a couple ideas, but Famous Dave's had a good selection of food at a good price, and they have been great to work with. :)

Also, we are getting a vegetarian dish, too, so, any vegetarians out there: don't let the Famous Dave's selection deter you!

Erica and I are really excited for this rally, if you couldn't tell already. :)

TWaugh 04-13-2011 10:52 AM

Two weeks to go till its time to hitch up and head down the road.

FlamingoBabe 04-13-2011 07:00 PM

..."ANTICIPATION!" <she says in a sing song voice>

Skater 04-21-2011 06:41 AM

One week! Anyone else excited?

Vintage Trailer Supply sent us some great swag for everyone, and they also sent some great items for door prizes. (On a related note, please buy stuff from them. :) )

TWaugh 04-21-2011 06:45 AM

:w00t:ONE WEEK and I'll be hitched up and heading down the road to the Kickoff rally.
Now I'm getting exited. :dizzy::w00t2::bounce:

TWaugh 04-22-2011 01:16 PM

Countdown 6 days!!:dizzy:

nick6930 04-22-2011 01:53 PM

How many are going so far? We should arrive late Thursday.

Sonia 04-22-2011 03:16 PM

Yesterday, our trailer was moved off of the grass and onto the driveway....getting close!

We will arrive on Friday: his and hers trucks.

"He" will bring Xena and I'll pickup CTM from school for a "dentist" visit and hope to make it by Happy Hour!
