Is it me or does this rally sound expensive

Cost: Club member motor home with two (2) people / $449 Club member motor home with one (1)
person / $269 Non-member motor home with two (2) people / $649 Non-member motor home with one (1) person / $469
Each additional guest / $175 Total Cost: (Payment must accompany application) $


Cost Includes: 4 nights camping fee, full hookups (30 amps), several meals, entertainment and activities. Dealers will
display the latest motor homes for your viewing. Plenty of food, fun, and fellowship.

The rates for that time at that campground are normally 48 for W/E and 57 for W/E/S and Cable.

At that price do they serve breakfast in bed?

I think I would miss that rally, or go and use another RV park that is close by. I have noticed that when one uses the word "RALLY" and it involves an invitation to attend, the price tends to be expensive.

What is included in the Rally fee's? With dinners, breakfast, entertainment and activities it could be a bargain. What Rally is it?

These large rallys are money making affairs for the people putting them on. Yes the fees are high and so is everything else connected with these rallys. Also the mob scene is not for me.

Wasn't the club member price of that one kinda close to the price of the iRV2 national rally last year? I know that included meals and a train ride, in addition to your stay, so it was kind of a better bargain.

Like previously posted, it all depends on what is included in the fee. I've paid more and I've paid less. I attend a rally because of the people that will be there. As to those saying the rallies are money makers, ha, ha, ha. I host rallies and it always comes out to break even or I foot the deficit. If you'd take all the rallies I've hosted (since 2005), I'm in the hole over $1K.

That's painting with an awfully broad brush, isn't it?? Would you like to know how much I've paid out of pocket in the 10+ years that my wife (Madame Boomer) has been wagonmaster of the Texas Boomers? I can guarantee you, she doesn't do what she does for the money, even though the Boomers doubled her salary this year....2 x $0.00 = $0.00

A large rally with meals, cocktail hours, and nightly entertainment can be pretty pricey, but $400+ is still steep. We've been to some very nice affairs for under $300 a couple. Don't do that often either, but once in awhile we splurge.

We went to the Affinity Rally in Louisvile last year, and we really enjoyed it, glad we went. It's too far away this year, but we plan to go next year when it will be held in Georgia.

Where else you gonna be able to kick your shoes off and check out a $2 million dollar rig?

In addition to the usual CG fee, entertainment, included meals, etc.; the rally organizers must also carry liability insurance, expenses for printing, phone calls, reserving travel arrangements, anticipating how many attendees will be interested in what is projected and coordinating with those venues, etc., which all fall under the organizing umbrella. . So what we as attendees see is not the whole picture. I've never been associated with organizing a rally, but I have seen some of the hard ongoing work while the rally is happening.
I do not know what rally you are talking about, but our upcoming irv2.com national rally also helps defray the costs associated with this free website for us to communicate with other RVer's and discuss RV related issues, simple conversation, chat rooms, etc. Internet bandwidth, and associated hardware, is not cheap, buy too little and the website will not succeed, buy too much and you are wasting a precious resource_money.
I suspect the rally you mention is in a similar scenario.
BTW, we can't hardly wait until September 25 for our national rally!

This rally is for one of the clubs sponsored by the Motorhome manufacturer. No forum associated with it.

Dealer displays so they can sell motorhomes to you...

The campground fees for that time are W/E/S 55.00 for two people

So it's costing 50 bucks for all the amenities, after the normal camping rate, if you go by yourself but a second person is 180 more?? lol

Having more information makes my first reply irrelevant, Sorry you didn't include details in your OP.
