Howdy Yall!

The registration page is set up and running for "The 2006 IRV2.COM National Rally!

Pre-registration is closed.

I am posting this to call yall's attention to it and explain as much as I can to answer questions yall may have.

The prices listed are all inclusive. The events, campground and any other prices include taxes (10% there) The trips to Cades Cove and Dixie Stampede include the cost of the tour bus to and from each event.

I decided not to use a tour bus for the Dollywood event due to the wide range of times folks would be spending there. Some may want to stay only half of the day. Some may want to stay from "Can to can't". So the cost to have a bus running to and from all day would have been quite costly. But the folks at the campground tell me there is a possibility of the Pigeon Forge "Trolley" expanding to include River Plantation RV Park next year. If so, that would be a VERY nice cost effective way to go to and from Dollywood.

The Campground fee includes the site fee, welcome supper, meeting breakfast, ice cream social. All functions at the campground and any other thing I can dream up that fits within the budget. I chose to do a "All in one" fee instead of nickleing and dimeing yall to death.

About 40% of the sites reserved are 50 amp sites. The 50 amp sites are going to first go to those that "Pre-registered" that listed needing 50 amp sites. After that, they will go to each paid registrant as they register until I run out of those sites. In other words, he/she that registers first gets them until they are gone. That is as far as I can think of to do it.

All of the sites are large enough to put just about any rig in any site. All sites are full hook up (Water, sewer and elect) sites with cablevision. So we are gonna TRY to accommodate folks that want to "Camp together" as much as possible. Now I am sure we will not be able to in all cases, but we are gonna do the best we can.

WiFi is available at the campground for and extra fee. I had thought of including that in the campground fee, but decided not to. There are folks like me have a Verizon card that we use for internet. Some may not even bring a computer with them. So I decided to let folks "Pay as they go" in regards to the WiFi.

Early arrivals or late departures will need to be arranged individually directly with the campground. We will send them a list of the site assignments three months in advance. (Well they require payment and site asignments that soon, so I'm a sending both needless to say) They have promised to try to put the early arrival folks in the same sites we assign.

Thanks to the efforts and research of two of our members this year there is a "Trip Cancellation" option available. Their efforts are greatly appreciated.

There are a couple folks that are planning to get some folks up for a "Golf outing" as well as a "Fishin trip".

There will be some vendors in attendance which we hope yall will spend time visiting. If any of yall know of some folks who may be interested in attending as a vendor/sponsor please let me know!!!!!

There is a pavilion in the campground right smack dab in the middle of the sites we have reserved. (I wonder how that happened ) That is going to be the more or less center of activity and information. Kind of the general "Meeting place" to hang out, chat, swap stories, yarns, visit or whatever you want..... That is also where the "Ice Cream Social" is going to be held. (That way we can just hose off the drip, spills and such)

There are some folks who have volunteered to do various things to make this rally run smoothly. There is a group that will meet folks when they arrive, greet ya, escort you to your site and give ya the "Welcome packet". There is another lady that is going to coordinate the "Pot Luck supper" so we don't wind up with 40 deserts and not any "Main dishes".... (Of course that may not be a bad thing having LOTS of desert )

I am sure SOMEONE will volunteer to wash and wax Warpath's new rig for him....

Anyway I guess I better wrap this one up before those of you that have fallen asleep by now don't fall out of your chairs!!!!!

There will be some "Tweaking" of plans between now and the rally I am sure. But the main thing is to get registration completed by April 1, 2006. So this fool can get all the venues and the campground stuff wrapped up in time. I have to have some of the stuff paid for three months in advance. (Middle to end of April) Hence the April first cut-off.

I am looking forward to this rally (Even though it has already caused me a bunch of grief ) and having a fantastic time with a great group of folks. (Driver too! )

Catch Yall Later,

Don (W5IT)

This post is to address a question I have been asked by a few folks through PM's regarding refunds if folks need to cancel after registering. Below is the policy I will utilize.

If some one registers and needs to cancel due to whatever reason prior to the April 1 cut off, I will give them a FULL refund. If they need to cancel AFTER the April 1 cut off they will not get an immediate refund. If another member comes up wanting to attend that can use the site, events and such I will refund the funds I am able to re-coup. If there is no one that can use the site or events, I would not be able to do a refund.

I will need to pay for several things in advance. After I have spent these funds, a refund will not be possible. It could wind up being more than the funds I had left. That would mean it would come out of my pocket. I (And the company of which I am a partner) am already donateing between $1,000 and $1,500 to the rally already.

Two members (Derick and Mary of the Florida Boomer group) saw that this could cause hardship on folks who had a medical emergency or the like that had registered and then needed to cancel after the cut-off. They researched and found a solution to that problem. They located a company that offered "Trip Insurance" for just such occurrence. They recommended it and by golly it is something I think is the answer. (Many thanks to them going the extra mile by doing this! ) That is where the "Trip Insurance" option came from on the registration page. So with the insurance you have a second avenue to recoup funds that may have been lost otherwise.

Once again it proves that no matter how hard you try there will be stuff come up that causes problems. But, by members working together a solution can be found.

That is what makes this forum/group so important to me. There is almost always some one who is willing to step up and help solve just about any problem that comes up. AIN'T it GREAT!!!

I think this year's National Rally will be the best ever with the tours to Dollywood and the dinner show at the Dixie Stampede as the highlights of the rally.

Some folks might want to take side trips to many of the area's attractions and the Harrahs Casino in Cherokee, NC might be a popular one. Also, the outdoor drama portraying the history of the Cherokee Indians; "Unto These Hills" is a must for our history buffs.

Many of you may want to take a road trip through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and you might even be able to work in a ride through a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Whatever you decide to do, whether it be checking out the area or hanging out at the campground, I'm sure you'll have a great time at this year's rally. Register now to insure you get one of the 75 sights reserved for our rally.

Tom and Cindy yall can get to the registration page by clicking on the avitar of the bear eating the drumstick on top of the broken into motorhome in my sig. or on the "Welcome page". Also there are 50amp sites available. Only a few have already been taken by folks who pre-registered. 40% of the sites reserved for the rally are 50 amp. So we should have plenty.

Miles we would enjoy seeing yall there. It should be a fun time. At least I am gonna do my durned welll best to make it fun! There is just SO much in the area, the toughest part is decideing WHAT not to do...

Catch Yall Later,

Don
