What You Have To Bring

NOT MUCH

- A Favorite Coctail or Appetizer to share with the group on Friday night. The Friday night Trailer Tour Coctail Party, will be grouped in 5 to 6 Trailer "Party Pods" per social stop. You will know who your pod-mates are well in advance of the rally --- so you can coordinate on who is going to be responsible for what (the appetizer, the coctails or the festive decorations); or work it as a team effort. Awards will be given for the best Pod experience, food and drink.

-A Pass Around dish for the Saturday night Potluck.

-Any Musical instrument or Kareokee CD you may have that you think we would have fun with for some evening entertainment around the campfire.

And a $15 "per trailer" Rally Fee to offset the cost of the speed table prizes.

Its 2014 and we have big news ------ we have moved the Fall Rally to Volo and are thrilled to be working with the folks at the Fish Lake Camping Resort in Volo IL.  Although we enjoyed 6 years in Woodstock, the campground was closed at the end of the 2013 season and we had to find a new home for this fun fall rally!  So mark your calenders and get your camping fees into Fish Lake and I will see you all in October!
