FMCA Rally, Redmond Oregon August 2014
« on: April 23, 2014, 11:26:39 AM »
Anyone else going ? We're signed up and looking forward to visiting with Framily there.

And, anyone have any places in the area that are "must" visits? places to eat?

Lots of must sees.  Starting with the headwaters of the Metolious river and Camp Sherman.  Next should be The High Desert Museum, lava rivers caved NM, if you have time, maybe Pine Mountain Observatory east of Bend.

Wendy,

We are in the planning stage to attend. Have not signed up yet. We will likely be with the Beaver security volunteers again. Becky has 2 pages of things to see in Oregon, and we are trying to get a tentative route going. We are thinking about a big loop out and back that will encompass the Seattle area down to Crater Lake to include Olympic NP, the Columbia River at Astoria, and as much of the coast of Oregon as possible. We'd like to visit Glacier, Yellowstone, and the Black Hills while on the loop coming or going. We've done the Black Hills 3 times, YNP twice so they are not as critical as Glacier, and the other two NPs we've never visited.

At this juncture planning on leaving home mid-July for about 90 days or so.

It will be great to see you again! We really liked the Framily get together!

Wendy:
   I think we are going to try to go.  This would be our first FMCA rally.  We just joined FMCA last year.  How do we go about making reservations?  Can you give me some guidance here?  I am looking forward to meeting you.  Somehow I thought you were going to Moab, but I don't think I saw your name on the list?  :'(

Like Brewers, we signed up at the FMCA website. We're signed up for the handicapped, non-electric section. The Redmond facility is great. It can get hot in central Oregon during the day but it's almost always delightful at night.

We are signed up for full hookups. Looking forward to the trip and hopefully getting together with framily. We were at Gillette but just never able to get with folks there for a variety of reasons.

     Danes have registered for the general [dry camp] area.  Looking forward to going back as we were Oregonians for 31 years - Seaside.  Had a T-shirt that read " Oregonians  do not tan, they rust".

Jerry and Ardra will be in the electric area.  We also used the FMCA web site to register.  Looks like we'll have another good group and a good excuse for another caravan!

Ardra,

Are you and Jerry going to the Monaco pre-Rally? We have reservations.

Ken, yes we just signed up.  Glad you mentioned it because we didn't know about it.  We also asked to be put on the campground waitlist but the probability of getting in is not promising.  We signed up for 30-amp.  We haven't been to a Monaco rally for a long time and will really enjoy it.

We are signed up for the electric too.  Can we arrange a place to meet so we can all go in together?  Makes happy hour much easier!!

Does anyone know if Redmond has a holding area where we can all meet?

They did last time. It was a farmer's field west of the highway. We were going to spend a night there but they took us on into the fairgrounds.

We are now registered for a 30 amp electric only site. I hope they have honey wagons and somewhere a long hose can reach for water. We are going to be at the Beaver pre-rally and will again be volunteering for security, so likely we will be parked in the volunteeer area.

Hope to see as many Framily as we can. We sure enjoyed it last year in Gillette.

Stan,
Let us hope the weather will be more conducive to gatherings in afternoons than those storms in Gillette!

We will be looking for information on a holding area where RVForum friends going into electric areas can gather prior to final rally parking so we can be closer together.

I checked with FMCA to be sure that we can meet in the holding area. See response below.
We will be arriving from the Monaco rally on the tenth and hope to get the group parked on the first day of parking on 8/11.

"Yes, you can meet up in the holding area. Please be sure to have a regular size notebook paper in the window of each coach and have a name, like Forum, on each and put 1 of 10, 2 of 10, etc.
Please write this in dark marker so our parkers can see it. It is also a good idea to have the same arrival date. 
If you want to give me the date and a list of those who have registered, I will make sure they all have the same arrival date.
I hope this helps.

We will be parking in a full hookup site on Sunday as we registered way early and are volunteers. Hope we can connect with the group some time, unlike our efforts in Gillette.

I thought the first day was on the 12th.  I have made some other reservations at Crater Lake for the 10th and 11th which means we won't get to Redmond until the 12th.  Does that mean we won't be parked with everyone else?   :'(

Steve,

I don't know how many of the others will want to go in early with us. But don't worry even if aren't parked with us we will all let each other know where we are parked and arrange Happy Hour somewhere. Others may want to go in later with you - I don't know, but typically we have gone in early to most rallies. Actually some will park in the handicap area and this rally dcmiller will be in full-hookups, so we won't all be together anyway.

Betty & I will be there on the 10th...

Steve

The group usually arrives the earliest entry day so we have a couple of days to visit, as it is pretty busy during the rally and we all do our own things.

We are also arriving on the 10th.  Have reservations about 30 miles north of Redmond.

We're also arriving the 10th.  We're going to the Monaco pre-rally.  The Monaco caravan leader said in an email that FMCA probably will have Bingo on Monday the 11th and perhaps Movie Night on Tuesday the 12th.

Steve, there's an old Monaco saying that if you arrive on time at a Monaco rally you're already late because they usually have events planned for the early arrivals.  The same is true of FMCA.  Also, the earlier you arrive the closer you will be parked to the main venues.
