Okay...less than one month to the rally...there's still time to join the fun!!!
Here's the proposed agenda for the rally.
Since 95% of the folks will actually be there on Friday 7/25 we figured we'd start the rally stuff off that day.
This agenda by no means is mandatory. Each family is totally free to partake in whatever they wish or nothing at all but wanted to put together some stuff that folks may want to join in on as a group.
For a couple of the activities, if we get a large enough group to attend...we can get a group discount. Therefore we ask that as you look over the agenda if you could reply (via PM) with your intentions on joining the group or not so we can try and get some pricing idea for everyone as to the overall costs. If you and your family plan on joining, please respond with which activity and how many in your family (and ages of kids).
Also if anyone has a portable projector that we could hook to a laptop and show a movie at night for the kids...let us know as we do not have one (just have to clear it with the campground hosts first if we get one!).
If anyone has a corn hole game board (one hole bean bag toss), horse shoes or volleyball bring it along. We have Bocce and hillbilly horseshoes that we will bring.
For the omelet egg boil...if you have never done this...you need to at least join that event.
We are still working on a pamphlet of other area activities and we've got some area information packages coming that we'll distribute in the welcome packages when you get to the rally...there certainly is much to do in this area!!!
This rally is EVERYONE'S rally...this agenda is just a suggestion to get some group outings going...nothing more.
Again, please respond with your intentions so we can plan for group discounts.
