I'd like to humbly suggest that we find a cool place for the June rally. Georgia is hot; Texas is hotter, and Pennsylvania perhaps is a little cooler, but not much. Please give us Southerners an opportunity to go to a rally in a much cooler place, e.g. New England, Great Lakes, Canada, mountains anywhere just as long as the temperature doesn't get out of the 80s. How about it folks, some of us silver-haired "oldies" would like to get out of the heat. Assuming I'm still alive and kicking, I'm certain to be there.

Ahh, Minnesota is usually nice in June, along with the Mackinaw City area. We were in Mackinaw in June, and when the temps got into the 80's they thought it was the hottest summer in a long time. I don't want to be there in the winter time. Our Shasta owners club held their annual rally at Mackinaw City Campground (?) and it is a big place.

Oh, and I don't want to be rude or anything, but, you can have your "Southern Humidity" back south anytime you want it. These 70 degree dew points are a pisser up here.

Thanks for your input. One thing to remember is we have members all across the country, and want to make it easy for folks to come. We are in Arizona, and any where is cooler for us. we have been to the Nashville and San Antonio rallies and I am sure the warmest it was was one day of 90 in Nashville all others were great and no one said it was hot at either.

Thanks again

We are currently involved in ongoing discussions regarding location of the '06 rally. Your suggestion is welcome and will be given due consideration.

One crucial element to holding a rally is to have someone willing to take on the task of being 'Wagonmaster', a job that requires a lot of managerial and organizational skills. A member wishing to be a 'Wagonmaster' would need to do some preliminary organizing of a potential rally, make some projections as to location, venues, pricing estimates, entertainment, attendance estimates, campground, etc. and submit it for consideration.

Again, thanks for your input, wherever the '06 is held I'm sure it'll be a great event.

We went to a rally in Mi. the same time as the IRV2 National rally and the weather was great. Low 70's with a breeze,low humidity,and temps at night in the 50's and one night 40's! A campfire felt good. It was in the mid 90's here in NC and extremely humid! So a great place for a June rally! Just my two cents worth!

Hey Minnesota or Michigan sound great maybe we could grumpy and the four of us attend the rally. Never been to a rally in my life. Sounds like loads of fun.

Good day to you all.

Linda,

Thanks for your input for a location for the 2006 National Rally, as posted previously we're currently involved in ongoing discussions regarding location of the '06 rally. Your suggestions are welcome and will be given due consideration.

You may want to consider signing up for the 2005 National Rally being held in Lancaster County, PA next year in June.

Jim,

The Black Hills of S. Dakota, Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park area is a great area, we appreciate your suggestion.

As posted before, we'd need to have someone from a suggested area willing to take on the task of being the 'Wagonmaster', a job that requiring managerial and organizational skills.

A member wishing to be a 'Wagonmaster' would need to do some preliminary organizing of a potential rally, make some projections as to specific site location, venues, pricing estimates, entertainment, attendance estimates, campground, etc., and then submit it for consideration.

Again, all suggestions are welcome and we appreciate the input.

I've been wondering if there would be any interest in having the '06 National rally in the Pigeon Forge and Seiverville, TN area with tours to Dollywood and a dinner show at the Dixie Stampede? Other tours could possibly consist of a trip to Harrahs Casino in Cherokee, NC, the outdoor drama portraying the history of the Cherokee Indians; "Unto These Hills", and a bus tour trip through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and also a tour of a portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Additional venues could be scheduled if there's sufficient interest from members fore this area.

Please signify your interest or lack of interest by posting your comments in this thread.

As posted earlier in this thread, we'd need to have someone willing to take on the task of being 'Wagonmaster', a job that requires a managerial and organizational skills. A member wishing to be a 'Wagonmaster' would need to do some some preliminary organizing of a potential rally, make some projections as to camping location, venues, pricing estimates, entertainment, attendance estimates, campground, etc. and submit it to the administration for consideration.

If you're interested in being a wagonmaster or if you'd be willing to help someone else who is the wagonmaster, please let us know.

Richard, that sounds good to us. Dixie Stampede is wonderful. We took boys there this summer at Myrtle Beach. The kids just loved it. Sounds like lots to see and do. We'll see what the others think
