    sorry I wont be able to make it, got some minor medicial issues going on right now. so my camping season may be somewhat limited for now I hope you all have a great rally, as vagov is a terrific host, and hope more book the remaining sites in the loop.

    Looking on DCNR website again, looks like another site has booked in the party loop. Both sites 240 and site 217. Are now reserved. , anybody claiming these sites? Only 2 sites left in the party subloop, and a few non electric sites left.

    Hello everyone, I was able to get a site for the weekend at the Pymatuning Rally. My daughter and her friend along with myself and our little dog will be on site 217. We are hoping to do some kayaking also from there. Is there anything we need special for the rally ...food etc? This is our first one. lso does anyone know how I can change my profile information on this site so I can update our pop up and vehical...so much has changed since I first logged on? I am also looking for a small part for our attached awning that we lost while camping. Not sure if there is a good parts site that carries pop up parts?

    Hi Dani,

    The only special thing with the rally is to make/bring something for the potluck on Saturday. My general rule of thumb for potluck ( we do them for my daughter's girl scout ceremonies as well) is to bring enough of your dish to feed your family. I personally go a little overboard, and tend to prepare 50-100% more then I half to.

    I've found that if people follow that there is always enough to go around. Since I tend to get to these rallies earlier then the posted start day (I'll be there the Wednesday before) I try to host an informal meet and greet on Thursday, and there's typically an official meet and greet on Friday. If people want to bring snacks or whatever, that's cool, but no obligation.

    Looking at everything I've typed it sounds like things are very regimented, but it really is all very free form and relaxed. Other then the potluck, we're all free to come and go as we please, although frequently we'll end up doing something as a loose group. I know sometime over the weekend, my family will be going to the deer park that's five minutes from the campground and I'm sure we'll be hitting up the spillway.

    To change gears a bit, to add your camper and vehicle, you can go in to your user settings in the top corner and there should be an option to edit your signature. I'm on my phone now, some I'm not sure the exact location in the menus, but it's in there. :)

    By the way John, we're planning on doing up a fruit salad for the potluck.

    Hope all this helps, Dani! Can't wait to meet you and your family.

    Currently at the Michigan rally, was at the Spring Ohio rally last month. Then I'm booked for the Ohio fall rally, and the Illinois Holloween rally. New camper is getting some miles on her.

    Dani, welcome. Glad you decided to join us, got you marked down. For site 217, that takes care of one mystery guest,now we need to find out who moved in on 240? Thanks Pat, the fruit salad sounds great, as pat, also said. Pretty informal , a meet and greet and potluck, anything thing else is optional , some tend to do things together as a group, where others do things more private during the day(s) whatever you prefer is fine, but the invite for either is present. I am looking forward to this rally , meeting all you new freinds, and seeing those who are returning again.....
