The 2010 Northwest Spring Rally will be held on May 14-16, 2010 at the Brookhollow RV Park in Kelso, WA. You can call them at 800/867-0453, but please read the registration information below before you call.


Click on the image below for a larger view.




Here is a pic of the rec room (click for larger view)




At this point, we’re looking at sites 1-10 (60’ pull-thru’s), 24-33 and 40-49 (40’ back-in’s), all of which have an additional 12’x20’ pad for parking your toad or tow vehicle. There is a nice grass area down the middle between sites 24-33/40-49 that we can use for our "social time" or for just hanging out.


Here is a pic of the space down the center row (click for larger view)




Registration details
  • Cost is $27 per night.
  • If you cancel your reservations before April 14, there will be a $27 cancellation fee.
  • Cancel after April 14 and there is no refund.
  • If you do cancel and someone else signs up, I’ll see what I can do with a little money juggling between the parties.
  • When you call to make your reservations, it would help the park staff if you could pay in full. That way, when you arrive, all you’ll need to do is pull up to the office, tell them who you are, they’ll hand you a packet and you’ll be on your way. If you do not pay in full ahead of time, you’ll need to spend a little more time at the office before you can park in your site. If you don't pay in full ahead of time, but know a few days prior to your arrival that you'll be staying for more than one night, please call the park to pay for all of your nights. Being paid in full will speed up the check-in process. Please consider the cancellation policy and your certainty of attending when deciding whether to pay in full or the minimum $27 for the first night.
  • When you call to make your reservations, please start out by saying, “Hi, I’m calling to make reservations for the rv dot net gathering on May 14-16 next year.” That’s their cue that this is a different kind of group registration than what they normally do. If you are arriving early or departing later, let them know what your dates will be They will take your credit card information and process it. You will not be assigned a space until a few days prior to the rally. (Please do not call the park to find out what space you’re in…you’ll find out when you get there.)
  • If you happen to speak to Rhonda, say a big thank you for handling our reservations for us. She's doing us a huge favor by doing it this way for us. Even if you don't speak to Rhonda, say thank you anyway.
After you are done with the park registration, send me a PM with the following information;
  • Names of people attending
  • Forum name
  • Email address
  • Complete mailing address
  • Deposit amount paid
  • Arrival date
  • Departure date
  • Size and type of rig, including the number of slides
  • Size and type of dog(s) (if any)
I need to gather this information for the park and get it to them by April 15th so they can figure out what space everyone is going into. If you have any special requirements, such as you need to be close to the clubhouse because you can't walk long distances, please let me know so I can pass that information along to the park so they can assign the best spot for you. If you need a pull-thru, let me know that too. (Remember, there is a differenc between need and want.

Final farewells


*** Happy Hour Bar Tenders*** $5 per person to participate in the offerings of the “Bartenders” who will be offering up some mighty fine concoctions. This is optional but last year it was great.


Volunteers
So far, I have Ryan and Ron Butler bringing the big pots for boiling the "omlet in a bag" and Bigdog bringing the big coffee pot. We'll need some help in the kitchen Saturday morning for breakfast to help cook up the rest of the fixin's. Let me know if you can help.


Things To Do

For those of you that enjoy wine, here is a website that lists wineries around Washington. Some are not far from the park, while others are a bit farther.

If you have never visited Mt. St. Helens, here are a few sites to check out: Site 1 and Site 2. Unfortunately, the visitor center is closed until May 16th.

The Mt Rainier Scenic Railroad is just up the road aways in Elbe.

And there will be a few maps of the area and brochures of things to see and do around the area at the rally.


Check back here to post #1 every once and awhile to see if there has been any updates.


If you have any questions, please send me a PM.

Um, David, do we have to enter the Sprint, is Sprint sponsoring the rally, or do we get free new Sprint phones?
Just another example of what the spell-checker WON'T catch!

No, I didn't, but I will. I don't think it will be an issue because I seem to remember seeing a rig or two that looked kinda old as we walked around the park when we were there.

DUH, he is OLD. You must make any instruction in very LARGE BOLD TYPE for him to see it. Contrasting colors also help
