Talking 2013 National Rally - September 8-14 - Amana Colonies

2013 National Rally
September 8-14, 2013
Amana Colonies, Iowa

It's with great pleasure to announce the location and date of the 2013 National Rally; September 8-14 - Amana Colonies. The dates were choosen in hopes that some of our members might be on extended trips over labor day weekend enjoying the end of the summer and could swing by the National on their way back south. It's our intent to move around the National so it will be in new and interesting locations and we felt that the Amana Colonies would be the perfect place to experience a beautiful rally in a community that is as beaitful as our wonderful iRV2 members!

Our event will be hosted at the Amana Colonies RV Park & Event Center, a 60-acre campground, RV park, and event facility located in the heart of Iowa's historic Amana Colonies. This National Historic Landmark hosts over a million visitors each year. Featuring seven historic villages in close proximity, the area is famous for its Old World charm and hospitality. You'll find excellent restaurants, historic architecture, unique shops, and fascinating museums.

You can read move about the Amana Colonies here on Wikipedia. Our National Rally will be hosted at the Amana Colonies RV Park & Event Center where we currently have 150 sites reserved. We will be promoting this rally extensively and expect it to be a lot of fun.

As I mentioned previously our rally has grown in size and it's now to time to change from the single couple who function as the sole Wagonmasters (which as been the norm in the past) to a team based approach. In the month ahead we will be posting a list of tasks that need to be completed and correlating committees which will be responsible for making sure those items are done. An example will be the entertainment committee who will be responsible for coming up with ideas for fun things to do during the event. A dining committee who will help us select which caterers will be used and also to make sure seating and dining runs smoothly during the rally. A welcoming committee who will be responsible for greeting our wonderful members as they arrive, etc.

The cost of the events and dining will be in a similar price range as the 2012 rally and the camping is quite reasonable with rates of $23 per night. More details on the costs, how to reserve your spot and all the other pertinent information will be available soon!

We look forward to a wonder rally in Amana!

Geez Andy, and to think that my friendly little "nudge" on other thread was all it took to get the ball rolling, .

Seriously, only kidding, Andy. Thanks for giving us the where and when. Now we get to start on the how.

Hmmmm..... My wife and I are going to be in Iowa earlier in the year. I guess I'll have to start looking for reasons to go to Iowa twice in 2013!

It's going to be a tough sell to go to Iowa twice in a year - considering the price of gas from Georgia to Iowa and back - but maybe I can find a Habitat for Humanity project along the way.

Is it too soon to start planning seminars? I have a few in mind. Have the wagonmaster(s) been identified? Guess I'll re-read the posts above to see who's running the show.

We spent a few days in Amana Colonies last year and loved it. Great German food too.
