    I think that as well as having at least five people committed, we have to have a specific place chosen to become an official rally. We might also want to change the name so as to make the purpose more clear and expand the base. I suggest "2017 West Coast Total Eclipse Rally." I also suggest that it be somewhere east of the Cascades because the CGs on the (more densely populated) west side will be jammed.

    Also, there are more trees on the west side, potentially increasing the chance that the eclipse might be obscured.

    Being that we have the Date and minimum threshold the next is the location!!

    I agree with the name change, but to start the same naming convention was used to bring attention to 2017 (being all the attention to 2014) and create an order in the list. Now that this has been accomplished how about:


    "2017 Oregon Total Eclipse Rally"


    This way each state (or vicinity in the path) could set their own:

    "2017 Oregon Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Idaho Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Montana Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Wyoming Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Nebraska Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Kansas Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Iowa Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Missouri Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Illinois Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Kentucky Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Tennessee Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 Georgia Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 North Carolina Total Eclipse Rally"
    "2017 South Carolina Total Eclipse Rally"

    wow (14)

    Once there are a number of state rallies set up campers would have options in what direction and of last moment weather changes.

    If we don't have rally sticker designs come up soon, I can ask my sis-in-law (professional graphics designer) to whip something up that would be compatible with a cut vinyl sticker or something.

    If this is something she would be interested in doing for some extra money, we have been looking for someone to design stickers on a on going basis for various rallies. So far they have been gratis and would rather have someone have incentive to keep the source regular. This way she could promote the service on various forums (depending on how much time she has).


    And once a design was established it could be marketed to the other rallies just by changing the location!! [:D]

    THIS image is great but we'd have to get permission from the copyright owner to use it.

    The same image used for the rally sticker could be on a T-shirt, too.

    I could always ask her, it wouldn't hurt.

    She currently designs packaging for board and card games, and for my brother's books, as well as another independent writer.

    THIS image is great!!

    What do you think of this name:

    2017 Oregon Total Eclipse Rally

    I wanted to put it up again to generate ideas.

    "2017 West Coast Total Eclipse Rally"
    is a grander title, and "Oregon" helps
    set up the series of rallies. The idea
    was to create momentum.

    And the t-shirts will be keepers!

    I prefer "West Coast" so people from BC, Washington, California and Nevada (plus some other western states?) will feel more a part of the whole thing. Of course, we know that all Portal members are welcome at all Portal rallies so it's not really a huge issue, but I think the regional title is more appropriate. We have no idea whether or not anyone else will set up a series of rallies for every state the eclipse path crosses.
