Good Sam Rally Daytona
« on: May 29, 2012, 08:01:17 PM »
Greetings!  Hope everyone is doing well! :) 

Just signed up for the Good Sam Rally in Daytona and we are VERY excited.  We have never been before and it is "on the way" to our next destination.  Well actually, we already knew we would be in FL for winter so this pretty much closes the deal for us!   ;D

Hi,
can someone fill me in on this?  looked at the web site some.
We're new to RVing, and are currently travelling back across the
country from Washington to Florida, near there.  just wondering
what the seminars are like.  entertainment does look good.

We haven't yet been to a Rally as this is our first year on the road (we deployed in April).  We are still wet behind the ears ourselves and with our desire to be in Fl for the winter and sticking to our, "fly by the seat of our pants" way of thinking these days, we just decided that the Rally in Daytona fit our situation perfectly.  From what we have learned from some of our fellow workampers this summer, Rallies can be a great source of information, networking and suggestions for a wide range of topics. 
We are very excited about it and hope that by then we have some more solids plans for the winter as well  ;)

Rallies are great. Lots of "free stuff," seminars, other RVers, good entertainment, new and used RVs to look at (or even buy :) ). I'm betting you'll have a great time.

We too will be arriving on Thursday, staying off site at a KOA rather than dry camping at the speedway since we will likely stay a little longer to visit with family and friends that we haven't seen in YEARS! :)

We can't wait to get there and meet some new folks and have a great time!  Would love to get together!!!

great, look forward to maybe getting together.
too bad though that you're not at the speedway though
as sometimes its just easier when in proximity.

hello,
 wife and I and her friend and hubby are going, this is our 2nd rally (1st in louiville ky), and their first.  the new Class A/B/C, FT, TT, campers are always there to highlight the new products.  the seminars are always great, especially for beginners like us, on most subjects/topics to rv'ing.
 
 and lots of vendors selling their products http://www.therally.com and lots of booths have gifts, just sign up, its free, do have to be present to win.

  you can pay at the door to get in, military ID is free, but if you are going to show (reba), and to the seminars the fee is higher, we paid $79.00 each? that was a month ago, we subscribe to mailer, and got $10.00 off by signing up early. 

  hope that helps.

Too crowded and hot in the booth tent Sat & Sun. Should have gone on Fri instead.

Rally was ok.  We were a little disappointed, but it was a good experience.  Reba was fantastic!  That was the best part IMHO.  I will echo others in that the supply tent was ridiculously hot particularly Fri afternoon and most of Sat.  We attended both Fri and Sat for different reasons and still didn't do all that we had intended (like meeting up with friends from here!!). 

The seminar presenters and presentation schedules kept changing (at least what we wanted to see) from online to printed and while we understand that it was nonetheless frustrating to expect one thing and get another. 
Reba was fantastic!

Units on display were primarily motorhomes which we were not expecting.  We had hoped to see more 5ers, but did find a few that gave us some food for thought.
Reba was fantastic!

We decided that we will not go out of our way again to attend a rally.  I am not sure exactly what we thought it might be, but either way, we left there disappointed.  The match and win was interesting and encouraged people to look and speak to one another which I think is great, but we had no interest in running around collecting buttons and such and maybe that is something that had we done, we may have had more fun?!?!?!?! 
PS.  Reba was fantastic! :)

Ahhh, I'm sorry it didn't turn out to meet your expectations and your excitement as you were so excited about registering and attending.  I figured Reba would be fantastic, did she change her outfits lots?  I saw her many years ago and she had many costume changes throughout her performance which I found to be quite an entertainment in itself.  I myself must get to a rally one of these days but not sure when..and I will go in with less excitement and no expectations so then I would not be so disappointed in the outcome if it turns out like your experience.. bonus if it turns out okay.  I do get thoroughly excited about just about doing anything so I would probably not be able to contain myself and NOT get excited but I will try.  I can't say I blame you for not wanting to walk around and seek out buttons and people especially if it was too hot, that would just drain a person.

She did the entire show in one outfit (blue blouse & black pants) and then did a quick change to come out for an encore in a bright red dress to sing "Fancy."

It was an overall good experience and we are glad that we went.  We too, get excited about doing something different, but tend not to dwell on it to much after the fact and just move on to the next.  Will we do it again?  Possibly, particularly if we are in the area, are looking for something or just want to meet up with friends!   ;)
