2005 Southeast Fall Rally
« on: May 18, 2005, 10:27:18 AM »
The Fall 2005 edition of the RV Forum & Roaming Friends Rally will be at Amy's RV Park in Tifton, GA.   The dates are 11/1- 11/6, 2005 but you are invited to come early and stay late - many folks do.  Tifton is  right on I-75 about 60 miles north of the Florida border and Amy's is 1.1 miles west from Exit 60.  I have reserved the Rec Hall for our group meals (and in case of inclement weather), plus we will have adequate room to gather on one of the sites for socializing.

Please call the park direct for reservations. I encourage you to do so as early as you can because November is the start of the snowbird season and sometimes sites fill up.  When reserving, please mention the RV Forum Roaming Friends so they can site you with the rest of the group.

Amy's RV Park
4632 Union Road
Tifton, GA  31794

Information:  229-386-8441
Reservations Only: 800-813-3274
Fax:    229-386-9063
www.amysrvpark.com

Amy's offers CoachConnect wi-fi service in the park (for fees, see www.coachconnect.net) and also has modem access. Special rates for the rally are $18/night for full hook-up, including all taxes [no other discounts apply to that rate].  There is also a weekly rate of $120 that works out to be slightly less than the special club rate.  There are 55 sites, of which 15 are 50A. Amy's also has a pool and a fishing pond - see the park web site for more info on park facilities.

Tifton is located within easy driving distance of a number of Georgia attractions, e..g the Agrirama in Tifton, and there are plenty of restaurants and stores in the area for a bit of diversion. And of course the Framily always makes plenty of its own entertainment whenever we meet.


The Brincks will be located on site #56 near the Rec Hall.

What is the weather like in that part of the country in early November??  We will leave our snow shoes at home but should we bring sandles and shorts?

Should be pretty nice, like early summer in the North.  More humid than the West, though.  Yes, you will probably want shorts & sandles.

Nancy is planning a Red Hat Tea at this year's Fall Rally, so all you ladies can show off your finery.  I don't know what-all she has in mind, but you can be sure it will be fun!

For those of you who missed the Pickles cartoon a couple of days ago, the daughter talking to the grandfather about the grandmother's Red Hat Society activities suggested the grandfather organize a ROMEO club for the men; Retired Old Men Eating Out. ;D ;D ;D

Called Amy's today and made reservations for 11-/1 - 11/6 and might be on site 14. They said they don't guarantee the sites.  They also said they don't require credit card numbers for clubs.  We are looking forward to meeting all of you in November.

That's right - the park will not pre-charge your credit card if you reserve as part of our group (RV Forum/Roaming Friends). You also get a special club rate.  However, in exchange for the reduced rate they ask that payment be made in cash or check upon arrival.

Let's see, so far I think we have...

The Southeast Fall Rally is creeping closer - time to think a bit about what we might like to do.  Any and all suggestions are solicited!

There will of course be the usual coffee klatches in the mornings, with coffee (and tea, if desired) and various tummy swelling goodies. We can bring the stuff pot luck style or buy the stuff locally, which ever seems easiest.

And I suggest we do the "Men's Breakfast" (men cook and clean up, ladies eat) that has become sort of a SER tradition - OK with you? Will pick one morning for that and serve it late, ala brunch, so a lunch won't be needed that day and folks can take off for shopping or tours afterwards.

We could do a campfire grill one night, with various sausages, peppers & onions and of course burger & dogs. Everybody chip in to pay for the meat and rolls and maybe bring salads pot luck style? Or go all the way and buy the salads too?

More ideas?

Bernie, sorry for the delayed response . . . but that's not so funny. Here in Albany at the Jewish Community Center they have a monthly ROMEO luncheon!

Hope all is well!

Gary,

All your ideas sound good.  It turns out the Southern Fall Rally and out "Scenic Route" home again trip will be our "major" 2005 trip.  Look forward to meeting all out you.

We agree Gary, all your ideas sound good! Can we get firewood there at the campsite or ? We didn't stock up this year like we usually do, but will try to find some and bring it if needed.

Do you think there is a chance we can talk Ray into making one of those incredible cakes? Are there any other requests for goodies that we can bring or fix?

Inquiring minds (and growling tumies) want to know  :D

Hi Dave,
Yeah, we can always use wood.  I figure we can always buy some locally if necessary, though.  The campground's ad says they sell firewood at the store.  Or maybe Dave Reavis can bring some as well.

I guess we will have to include a "Romeo" day in the agenda, then.  Maybe while the ladies are playing at Red Hat? 

Although ROMSAD seems to be the norm anyway. ROMSAD = Retired Old Men Sitting Around Drinking ;D ;D ;D

Nancy just had another idea. We are carrying our big Hamilton electric roaster with us, so we could put 2-3 big pork roast in it and let them simmer away while some foil-wrapped taters bake on a grill or over a campfire.  That way nobody has to cook anything and we can all enjoy happy hour.

Speaking of Happy Hour(s), bring your favorite hors deouvres recipes/ingedients and try them out on your friends. Don't everybody make them on the first day, though. Spread out the treats thru thw whole week!

Another thought: For those who are arriving early (Nancy & I will be there on 10/30), remember 10/31 is Halloween.  We aren't planning a full-boat Halloween event as in last years Fall Rally, but some decorations and snacks appropriate to the day would be in order.  Maybe some pickled bat wings?

In the interest of making this thread a more easily read source of information regarding the Fall Rally, I have editted out some of the chit-chat. Hope nobody takes offense!

The fixin's for pineapple upside-down cake(s) are/will be on the coach and I expect to make at least one <VBG>!

We intend to arrive early in the week and stay until Monday. From there we will be heading West and then South to the 'Valley' and our winter residence.

Gary,

I'm not going to make it.  As you know I decided to go back to work part time and started monday.   It looks like I'll be up here until Thanksgiving and then back after New Years.

I'm limited to 999 hours per rolling year and plan to get into a Jan-Mar, July-Sep routine that won't interfer with the important things like SE Rallys and cutting & hauling brush.  But like I said, I just started so...

I haven't called Amy yet in case somebody needs my spot.
