2007 Southeast Fall Rally in Mobile, AL
« on: July 16, 2007, 01:47:04 PM »
I'm really late getting this set up this year, but here it is!

DATES:         10/28/07 - 11/1/07
LOCATION:  MOBILE, AL at Wales West Train & Garden Lovers RV Resort
                                        www.waleswest.com   1-888-569-5337

Make your reservations now - feel free to come early and stay late!  Wales West should be a fun place - they have an operational steam railroad right on the premises! See the website for more info.

Mention that you are with the Brinck group (they don't seem to have the RV Forum connection on their records yet) so they can site you near us.

We will do the usual forum rally things - socialize a lot and eat too much!  Nancy & I will do a dinner one night and  the guys will no doubt cook breakfast for the girls one morning. More info later.

Gary,

Looks like a niice place.  Have a great time.  Our daughter got her Phd last year from UGA and no longer lives in the south, so we don't expect to get down in that area very much any more.  We are thinking of doing a section of the Blue Ridge Parkway this fall and that will be our farthest east and south for the year.

I forgot to mention that the it's a Passport America park. We probably won't have enough people this time to qualify for the rally rate, so the passport rate can be used (except for weekend nights).

We're looking at arranging our travels to make the rally.  We'll let you know but I've got it on the calendar.

As for PA, according to their listing: P.A. discount is valid for 2 nights, Sunday through Thursday. P.A. discount is not valid for groups or rallies.

How many do we need for the group rate?

Gary, 

Maybe I shouldn't declare too early and risk driving other potential attendees away,  ;D :D ;D  but since You, Ned and of course Lorna and Nancy top the list of folks I've wanted to meet since joining the forum, I'm giving it some serious consideration.  I'll discuss it with my navigator and start making plans.  I'll follow this thread closely and hope to see many more familiar and NEW names agree to join in.  Thanks for the invite,  lou

Hope you and Lorna can work it in - would be great to see you again.

I think we need 10 rigs to get a group rate - she asked if we would have 10 and I said no and did not pursue it further. I knew some of our regulars (e.g. the Derways and the Reavis's) won't be able to make, so figured it would be a small rally this year. But who knows?

The Passport rate is probably a better deal than the group rate, even though it is just two nights. Two nights on PA and two more at the Good Sam rate is a decent deal - works out to a 30% discount for 4 nights.  Group rate is probably similar to Good Sam or maybe a bit better, though I didn't inquire.

Hercule, Blackie and Max.  I can't wait.

Don't know about the other two but if they did get together I'm sure Max would demonstrate his ability to hide.

Hi Gary,

   We would like to join you in the little rally at Waleswest.

I'll make reservations tomorrow (Thursday) via their 888 #. Other than being with the Brinks group, are there any other instructions you can feed me.

I know where it is. We are coming from Citrus County FL.

Carson,

Gary and Nancy are wonderful hosts and, in addition to meeting the other attendees, I know you'll be welcomed. Wish we could be there.

Even though it is tempting fate, I have made reservations to attend.  After 6-7 years of things not working out, maybe this is the year.  I have plenty of room for anyone who wants to stop on their way to the rally.  One 15amp, 1 30amp, and 1 50amp
available, plus water and sewer.

There are no quiet hours.  You would be far enough away from the house that I would never hear you.   In fact, I cannot hear my noisy generator at the house. :)
