    Did they let you in before 2? If so, I might head out earlier than planned tomorrow, since no one is booked for my site tonight.

    Thank you Caper. We head into the rally on Friday afternoon. However, by Thursday evening, it seems as though the power at the park has already crapped out. This happened to the rally at the same park 2 years ago when we were all there. So hot, and everyone using their A/C (not just in the park, but surrounding community), that the power grid can't handle it. Kinda sad since the park is only 20 mins down the road from a huge power generating windmill farm setup. Probably 75-100 windmills there.

    Well the 2020 Covid rally is over..
    To everyone who attended, thanks for coming, hope everyone enjoyed themselves, with the whole social distancing thing we skipped the usual potluck dinner but still had shared campfires on two sites as been the custom for the past few rally's the pineapple juice made its appearance, Strawhouse finally got to sample it..lol

    Dispite a short power outage, some late racoon visitors , a couple really hot days that saw the dogs spending lots of time in their air conditioned trailers, everything went pretty smooth, even the non traditional cake CCPTBO brought as a replacement cake was great.

    Again was great seeing everyone again. A new thread has been started for ideas on where to hold the 2021 Ontario Rally, so please read the criteria and post your ideas.

    Lastly safe travels home and looking forward to seeing everyone again..

    Cheers

    Thanks to everyone for another great rally. Had lots of fun in the scorching heat, had a great b-day cake from CCPTBO for Snow and me, had great donuts and cinnamon rolls from Stevie and Teena, and met a new great little doggo for the first time. Bailey and Rocky wanted to make friends, but decided that social distancing was the way to go in light of the situation.

    Thanks to CCPTBO for letting a couple extras pitch a tent on their site.
    Thanks to Strawhouse for letting a different couple park their car on her site.
    Thanks to Snow for initiating the summer rally again.

    Lots of lively conversation and campfires had by all.

    Always a great time spending time with our camping family. Once a year just never seems like enough time!

    To our "pitch-a-tent" campers...you're always welcome! Had your wine last night...was great, thank you.
    The cinnamon buns and donuts were fantabulous....glad we were able to try them!
    Finnalyn took to everyone and it was a great first camping experience for our pup. Thanks to all for welcoming her.

    Until next year peeps!!

    Hi guys, nice to read you had a good time despite all that is going on.

    Haven't been around in a while, decided to post here to say hi and here is where I'll find the members I know.

    Didn't camp at all this year due to washroom restrictions, trailer is going back to storage this weekend untouched...

    Been thinking a lot to get a 30ft+ TT and going seasonal, been looking at a few campgrounds within walking distance of lake Huron and ~45 min from home/work. Plan to explore these campgrounds next year and maybe buy the TT by mid-end of the season and if we do that, will be selling our PUP. Kids are 20 and 16 (with a G2 license) so they don't hang with us anymore, thinking a seasonal TT in a nice campground might encourage them to join us on weekends and/or at least, allow us to "glamp" every weekend.

    Had a trip to Cuba booked this year that we had to reschedule for 2021, right around Canada Day so 2021 rally is not an option for us.

    Hope everyone is well and keeping safe !

    I'd wait until the RV market settles and the folks who discovered they're not the camping type unload their trailers.
