    Joe, Thanks for the great starter page for this rally!!! This past years rally at James River State Park was a blast. We met alot of new folks and made some new friends.

    HVAC and I are in the early planning stages for this upcoming rally but I would make your reservations now!! I would love to take this campground over with members from www.PopUpPortal.com We take every site for the whole week with nothing but pop-ups.

    Start making your reservations now! We will be using Campground A

    The CG has 20 gravel sites, a paved road, 20x20 tent pad and a handicap accessible restroom. Given our wide variety of demographics, I felt campground A would be the best primary CG for us to use.

    HVAC and I have discussed a few things.......with more to come. We haven't decided on a potluck or a progressive (site to site) dinner..........or both.

    We will have the 50/50 raffle at least once during this rally. 50% to winner, 50% to this website. Don't forget this website is operated on donations from its members and purchases from the giftshop.

    Bring a gift for the secret camper santa exchange. Please bring a camping related gift valued around $20. As you turn them in you will recieve a raffle ticket. At some point we will start drawing tickets and handing out the gifts.

    Hope to see everyone there!!!! Please email me as you make reservations...I need your last name and reservation number so we can stay grouped together, but this shouldn't be a problem if we overtake this State Park.

    We're likely going to come. My parents own a place on the river in Montross off of Nomini Bay, so it almost seems like a waste to camp so close. We usually prefer our camping trips to be "away".

    However, I mentioned it to my dad, and he suggested that he might be able to come up the river and give some boat rides (or possibly water skiing/tubing if it's warm enough). So, if we do come, there may be some extra entertainment.

    We just may. I'll let you know. But we already had a week-long trip planned. Not sure how much time my DH can take off.
    Oh, maybe a long weekend... :)

    This may be something we can do. DH has to work every third
    weekend, but b/c the rally covers two weekends...we can at least
    be there for part of the rally. Westmoreland is a CG we have been
    wanting to try. I have been told it is beautiful.
    Thanks so much for organizing this event.

    Sorry I haven't been around.... the DW and I are now seperated and probably headed down the D road. I am going to try and make this rally....I still have several months to get it all pulled together.

    Currently she has the kids w/ me having visitation (liberal) [:(]. I will be keeping the [PUC] with her having some visitation (use of it) :) It's all good, we are being very civil and keeping the kids #1 in our lives.

    If your aware of any young, single females that have a nice TV and might like to share this pup for the Rally let me know........the new TV I just bought is with the other half. Keep me in your prayers and keep looking for that girl with a good TV.

    Sorry to hear of the domestic situation. That sucks about the truck though. I laughed about your line regarding the single female with a TV... Classic!

    By the way... we will be trying to make this one. Probably just the first weekend though. Kylie had a blast at the last rally. She allready asked if there would be a piniata again!

    Hope everyone is well, and we look forward to seeing everyone again!

    Hi Binky,

    Kelly and I are sorry to hear about this development. We enjoyed your company and hospitality during the 2009 Spring Rally. We wish you and your family long-term happiness however things turn out.

    We will be planning to attend the 2010 Rally. We would be happy to help in any way we can.

    P.S. I have been busy with work most of summer and was sick with pneumonia so haven't been on the forum much. We have made it camping 12 nights in 2009. We have one more outing planned the end of September before Sarah's surgery.
