    I will be hosting the Illinois Fall Rally again this year. Since it always seems that the columbus weekend is the popular date, we will be holding the rally that weekend again. Here are the tentative details:

    2016 - 4th Annual Illinois Fall Rally
    Dates:10/07/2015 to 10/9/2016

    Location: Morraine View State Park LeRoy, IL

    The rally will be held in Loops P and F(P13-P23,F1-F9). If the primary loop is full, E1-4 and E11-13 are also close to the loop along with P10-12.
    The rally site is F2.


    Reservation Link:
    http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/moraine-view-state-recreation-area/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=IL&parkId=453761#sr
    Site Cost:
    $20 Per Night and a $5 Reservation Fee.


    Here is the tentative schedule:
    Friday evening (starting around 5or 6PM) Meet and greet at the fire, rally site F2

    Saturday
    Daytime: This is fairly open to whatever you want to do. I will be leading a short group hike if anyone wants around 10:30AM or so, and probably fishing mid-afternoon sometime.

    Evening Activities:
    4:30PM Kids trick or treat (It's early in the month, but this has been popular in the past)
    5:00PM Group Photo
    5:45PM Potluck at the Goose Island picnic shelter
    After the potluck: Socialize at the fire in rally site F2

    Looks like a lot of fun. We have never been to a rally. However as much as I want to go in October, DD is getting married the following weekend and can't do it . Hopefully next year we will be able to do it,

    Only 4 sites left in the main rally loop: F7-9 and E13. There are still plenty of other sites in P and E loops that we can use if the main loop fills though.

    all right folks. I've reserved site E 01. I'll be arriving on Thursday afternoon with the DW and we will be staying till the 10, Monday. we can't wait to see everyone. I know we are not right beside others but we (I) figured we would leave the close party [Guitar]sites to the new members. Don't worry we will be by to bother everyone. we are just across the road. hurry on Rally. [CP]

    :) thanks Mike but you know I wouldn't forget the fall rally. we have just been very busy with family in town and A/C going in at our house. as well as trip planning for a trip to Maryland to see family and WashingtonDC. painting and gardening and birthdays have filled in the corners of a very busy summer. can't wait to get home so we can go to Friends Creek to relax for a week. [LOL] don't forget there are something like 157 more campsites we need to fill for this rally. [LOL]

    Looks like we will be there with the new Jayco. Right down the road from Il. Plainsman in E 02. No awesome front porch on this one, but it do have an awning. Just the 2 of us. M will make some corn bread. We'll bring a D/O of Red Beans and Rice with some kind of Meat in it too.
