I want to thank you for your confidence and trust in regard to putting on the 2011 National Rally. I will do my best.

The fact that there isn't anything immediately in the vicinity of Bethpage is all too true except for little ol' downtown Urbana, VA. The last time I looked the Ice Cream parlor had burned down. Now that said, I am looking into obtaining bus transportation for a day trip to Colonial Williamsburg (CW). It's 43 miles from Bethpage. It looks like a bus seats 55 people and I would not be too surprised that we will need 2 or 3 bussses. I'm going to plan it for a 8;30 to 9:00am departure arriving approximately 60 minutes later perhaps by 10:00 say. We stay in CW for about 5-6 hours. Lunch on your own of course so you can take your time. I expect that most folks are going to be on the bus between 3:30 and 4:00pm for the hour drive back to Bethpage. This is going to be a BIG plus for our rally. What I need to get under control are costs so I'll be looking hard at saving your money.

I will have more to write about the rally in a separate thread. I am looking forward to the 2011 being a Grand Rally! I'm hoping that we can we make a 100 rig count this time for our National Rally! I am going to reserve 100 sites. This is your Rally. Please show your support by planning to attend.

Now here's the big one that you have all been waiting for "WHEN?" I believe that the slot that is available to us (tentative) at the present time is; 7/31-8/6/11. We will arrive in Sunday, departing on the morning of the 6th. That's 6 nights of camping.

I would ask that if anyone sees an obvious conflict with another large rally event to please point that out. I think that the slot is a good choice since it does not occur at the same time as the GNR, Good Sam, FMCA or other large rallies that would pull attendees from our event.

I am also looking for committee members. If you would like to help with a particular task at the rally please let me know by PM.

Aren't Texan's always bragging about how far it is and how long it takes to get anywhere in Texas?

Sorry but your confusing bragging with complaining.

And how long does it take to drive across YOUR state?

Hmmm... Based on the number pattern... and if I apply all that training I had over the years... I'd have to say the next number in the sequence would be... 2012.

Driver, do you think that you can do Colonial Williamsburg in 4 or 5 hours???? I've done it 3 times over the years and I've never been able to do it.... If people drive all the way to Virginia and buy a ticket to see Williamsburg then they may want to get their money's worth.

If you're not dead set on Beth Page I would suggest looking at one of the closer camp grounds to Williamsburg. I'm afraid that the bus ride from Beth Page will be closer to 90 minutes to get you down to Colonial Williamsburg, and with all of the different things to do there I'm thinking that's where everybody will want to go. You have the Pottery, Bush Gardens, the water park (for the kids), you have William and Mary college, Jamestown is right down the road, and Yorktown is not that far.

Just my .02 worth......

No camping for us that time of year either,especially no more than there is to see or do in that area. I use to live in Norfolk and the two of us have made many trips back to the area and to Williamsburg. The only way we decided to go to the Williams rally this year in summer was because we have always wanted to go cross country,we have friends in Oregon that wanted us to visit so it seemed like a good time. We are still are on the road and have escaped the heat of the east coast but soon heading back to it.
