This Topic is for posting about the the 2015 New Years Rally.
For information about the rally please see this TOPIC in the top of this section.

I am going to try separating the Announcement which will have the current list of Attendees from the reply/active thread topic.
We'll see how this works.

John and Susan,
Tom and Carolyn,

Welcome to the New Years Group!
As couple of New Years Rally newbies, just a reminder that this is informal rally. Events will be planned by the group at Happy Hour. I guess a lot of folks like the area and the loose rally concept, because they keep coming back.

See you in December.

Thanks Ken!  Catalina has been a regular stop for the past several years, and now that we're full timing it just worked out we'll be there at the right time.

Look forward to meeting you.
We've been going to Catalina SP long before we started this rally (this will be the 8th year). The first few years we went to Catalina SP there was only CG "A". By itself not suitable for a rally.
The only downside to Catalina SP for a rally is the lack of a facility for group meetings. Depending on the weather that can be a challenge, but somehow it always works out.

All right you folks--sounds interesting--but where in the world is Catalina State park??  I am in North Carolina!

Catalina State Park sits at the base of the majestic Santa Catalina Mountains. The park is a haven for desert plants and wildlife and nearly 5,000 saguaros. The 5,500 acres of foothills, canyons and streams invites camping, picnicking and bird watching — more than 150 species of birds call the park home. The park provides miles of equestrian, birding, hiking, and biking trails which wind through the park and into the Coronado National Forest at elevations near 3,000 feet. The park is located within minutes of the Tucson metropolitan area.

Park facilities include a campground, picnic tables, grills, trails, an equestrian center, a group use area for day or overnight use (available by reservation), restrooms, showers, and a gift shop. All restroom and shower facilities are accessible. The park also offers an equestrian center which provides a staging area for trail riders with ample trailer parking

Thanks Tom and Margi.  I kept thinking it might be off the coast of California--you know Catalina island-the song and all that.  Even the person that put the long description in--didn't give me a clue!

I found my notes.  We're in B-23 and arrive 12/28.  Not sure how long we're staying, but we will be there for the NYE Party.  In fact since we have a new to us coach, we want to volunteer to be one of the open coaches for the Wandering NYE Party. . . .  See you all then, if not before.

Glad you two can come. We'll put you down as a host for NYE.

Hope you can make Moab in May October. We want to see the new coach!

We are sad that Fred and Daisy have had to cancel coming to Catalina. We will miss them.  Fred and Daisey have been coming to the Catalina rally since the beginning and before that the New Years rallies at Lake Alamo and Quartzsite.
I should point out that with their cancellation site B22 is available - at least for now.

Hello everyone,

I'm new to this group and looking forward to meeting everyone at Catalina and Quartzsite this year. Made my reservation a while back at Catalina State park and I believe I'm in B25, might be 24.

I'm hoping this is the beginning of an extended RV excursion with no set end date.

I've only done one other RV trip last year soooo, any help and suggestions will be gladly listened to.

Looking forward to the December start.

Last year, some of us tried to get into Winterhaven for the Festival of Lights. Due to the incredible popularity of this event, we couldn't even get in line for entrance. I'm thinking of making a reservation to take the tram through the neighborhood this year and thought that I'd check to see if anyone else might want to join us. If so, I'd like to know asap as space is reserved well in advance. Also, money must accompany any reservation, so please be certain that you will be attending. Rides are booked from the 13th to the 26th. So, if you'll be in Tucson or at Catalina during those dates and would like to be part of a most memorable experience, give me a date and time preference and let's get it together.

Randy:

How much is the Tram ride for 2 adults?  We're in Casa Grande and won't arrive at CSP until 12/28,
but would certainly consider a drive down for the show if it's reasonable.  We do like Christmas Lights.
We might even show up early for a bowl of gumbo or a In and Out. . . . .

Howdy folks,

At the last moment, we were able to snatch some vacation time here in Brazil for the holidays... and we're going! :-)

Expect us to arrive on the 29th, we have just reserved campsite A-37, and will be departing on the 1st after the hike.

Really looking forward to meeting all of you!

Once again the business wins out. Due to manpower constraints in the business Susan cannot get away from her duties as President/CFO. We are going to have to cancel our plans to celebrate the New Year at Catalina State Park >:( :'(  .

It is very sad to have to cancel reservation after reservation because of the business, but the good news is that one of our favorite former employees came into the office looking for work, so Susan is going to interview her on Tuesday. If everything works out Susan will once again have the assistance in the office she desperately needs.

I am going to make reservations for next year...I have to keep hoping that Susan will be able to take more time off in the near future.

I am truly disappointed, I made the reservations in January 2014, it was one of the trips I planned that I had really counted on. After my sons were raised and moved out, I've wanted to get out and do New Years camping. I've made reservations for next year at Catalina, I'm hopeful.

Sunday Dec 28th

Happy Hour at 3PM

Then we are going out to dinner - restaurant TBD

At 7PM some of us are going bowling at the Fiesta Lanes, 501 W River Rd.
    $7.00 cover charge for admission. With admission the bowling and shoe rental are free, but even if you just want to watch it will cost $7.00. Sheila says the $7.00 admission will be worth the price of the entertainment

Other information:

With the weather forecast we have decided that the quasi potluck will be on Tuesday Dec 30. Like last year we will order fried chicken from Fry's. Everyone will bring a side or dessert.

Some folks will be going to the movies on some days (particularly the raining days predicted)

Theaters:
Century Theatres at Oro Valley Marketplace (across the road from the CG). Schedule here

AMC Loews Foothills 15  (Ina Rd and Cholla Blvd). Schedule here

I heard talk to day of some who wanted to go to the Pima Air Musuem and the Boneyard tour. Note the following from their website: No
   No"Boneyard"/AMARG tours on Fri., Dec. 26, 2014 due to an Executive Order for a federal holiday on that day. We've added extra tours the following week (Mon., Tue., Wed. and Fri.). NOTE: Thu., Jan. 1 is a federal holiday so no "Boneyard"/AMARG tours but the Pima Air & Space Museum is open.
http://www.pimaair.org/

Other possible Activities:
Biosphere 2. See info here
Arizona-Sonoran Desert Musuem. see info here
Titan Missile Museum. see info here
Tubac, AZ. see info here
The Art Museum at the University of AZ. See info here
Drive Up Mount Lemmon, but be careful the road was closed overnight a day ago because of ice. It is now open but may have restrictions
Sabino Canyon. Info here

Remember this is your rally. Pick and choose what interests you.

If you are going to something that others might enjoy, please post it here. It's always more fun to go with friends - even new friends!

An RVForum Rally First!  At least my first time ever bowling with a group of seniors.  Yep for  only  $7 per person we had more fun than you can shake a stick at.  I think a few of us will have some sore  body parts tomorrow but tonight we had a few laughs, cheers and wahoooooo's.   Terry  had a high score  of 149 and Ken had a game of  159.  I bowled a few gutter balls but I did not fall in the alley as I did witness but got no shot! 

So here are some shots and we did not get home until well after 9 pm... this old group just keeps getting better!

Betty,

You forgot to tell them that in the first game I started with 4 gutter balls in the first 3 frames and ended with an 82! After all these years it took awhile to find a way I could bowl with a body that isn't still 20. Terry won 2 out of 3 and had the high average of our group. Maybe other will post their results.

But really the scores are unimportant, it was just a great way to have some fun and I think almost everyone had a good time! Some of us will have some minor pains today (my thumb is very sore). But still it was a blast - especially watching others (or others watching me clean the gutters).

I think this was a forum first and may be added to our News Years rallies in the future.

Since there's no way to "like" a post here on The Forum, we have to actually go in make a post. So while I "like" what Ken and Betty have posted, I actually have to say that I agree with them about everyone having a good time, about sore body parts (I won't be walking long or far today) and about how we should add this event to future Forum New Year celebrations. It was great to be able to share in such a good time with such a "happy" group. Or was it the good time that made the group happy? Whatever, it was fun.

Betty, it looks like you guys are having fun as always, in spite of the cool weather. Although I see Terry and Frank are in shorts so it can't be to bad. We'll hold down the fort here in Surprise, as we wait for friends to arrive from Mn tomorrow.

We're looking forward to the trip over tomorrow and we're bringing our 17 year old daughter, Andi Jo, with us. Unfortunately, some rain and a cold snap that's hitting San Diego tomorrow will be right on our tail. I know you folks in MN are laughing and wondering, "How bad can a San Diego cold snap be?" I make no excuses. We're just going to be lucky enough to make it over the mountain pass ahead of the storm, because the snow level will be at 2000 feet. See you guys tomorrow.

Oh so true!  Here it is about 24 hours later and I'm starting to remember a few muscles I had forgotten are muscles!  It was fun and we were surprised at how well we did after 55 years which is about the last time either of us went bowling.  Most of us didn't know how to operate the new electronic scoring system and had long forgotten whatever rules there are in bowling.  But that didn't stop this intrepid group.  Definitely plan to try it again next year!

Well the plan for  8 of us  last evening was to return to the Harvest Moon Restaurant ( following 3 successful trips last year) and then  off to a movie.  The  party of  8 was seated right away at 5:08 pm , still plenty of time to make a  7:15 movie.  Well the service was slooooooow and food not  hot  nor  tasty nor even close to the  level as  last year.  So sadly  it does not make our recommendation for next year.

We missed the movie as checks still had not arrived and when the checks did come we were charged  20% for our "service."   But the company was grand and we got to  welcome our international RVForumites  Val and  Monica from Brazil. 

Terry showed  the first  Hobbit Movies in our rig until I could no longer stay awake!  Life is good!

Additional note on today.

If anyone else has something planned that others might join, please post it on the forum. This could incluide an alternative restaurant for dinner.

There is no happy Hour scheduled because of the weather.

Also attached is a photo of the breakfast group.

Did anyone get pictures of the dinner yesterday. I was too busy eating!!

Sheila, you were a genius to have the chicken dinner yesterday when we were in lovely sunshine at this time.  I wouldn't be surprised to see snow on the higher peaks above us tomorrow morning!

My weather station has the barometer rising and tomorrow should be cool but nice according to the online forecast.  Are we planning to go on our New Year's Day hike in the desert?

Hi all......Happy New Year!
We are in Bullhead City now and had a wonderful albeit COLD winter storm this am....a nice covering of snow to go along with it. I know, "snow" not a novelty to many but those of us from Southern Cal don't get to see it falling often, so it was Fun for a day! :-)
Hope everyone is doing well....

The New Year was greeted with SNOW here at Catalina SP!!

But we all had fun.

I did have to use a broom to bounce snow off the door awning so it could be closed.

 A Happy New Year to all. Welcome  to 2015.  I tried to capture photos of all New Years Eve Participants but  in the  trips from one  RV to another I managed to miss Frank and Barb,  Kim B,  Jeff and Sue, Chet and Laurie.

This was a first as it snowed during our  New Years celebration.  Most of us  put on our rain coats,   to manage the trip from  one rig to another!  Some drove their cars the  100 feet or so!

Thank  You so much to our hosts, Ken and Sheila, Henry and Margaret and Team Lola, Larry and Loretta for hosting our New Year's Eve celebrations in their  beautiful  motorhomes!  Thank you to me for  taking photos and   making the women wear hats!

Thank  You to Linda Stock for  your   donation of a bottle of champagne to toast Russ this special evening! The  champagne was delicious as several of us were able to make a sample.  Well maybe only a few of us had a bunch!

    All right, in 2010 we went to Quartzsite and were hit with a micro-burst, with heavy winds and torrential rain.  So, now we've book flights west and plan on dropping by Q again, that's 3 weeks from today, and I see those dirty rotten pictures posted.  You all tell me how great the south west is, but it is hard to agree with 79 to 85 degree weather here in Florida, I don't know what we were thinking going out there, heck we could have stayed in NS where there isn't any snow either.
     I just couldn't resist, just light the fires so that it warms up by the time we get there.  ;)

My goodness what a fun night and, being from San Diego, we almost never see snow so we thought it was pretty neat. It was also a very educational evening. I learned from Jeff that you can tow your car while it's still in Park, and it won't get damaged and Ilearned from Henry that a five gallon bucket won't hold 50 gallons of gray water. OMG, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. RV stories are the best.

Cyndi Jo and I would like to add our sincerest thanks to our hosts. Last night was a lot of fun!

HELLO 2015!  HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

After a fun evening celebrating with our framily we returned to our motorhome with a lot of snow still falling.  We decided it was too good to pass up, so put on our boots and warm clothes to go for a walk.  What fun!  We greeted 2015 at midnight Arizona time while walking in the snow.  Quite a different start to our New Year.  It's now mid-day of January 1st and there's still quite a bit of the white stuff on the ground.

We wish all our friends a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2015.

Ok  on January  2, 2015 we will try for THE HIKE we usually do  on Jan 1.  Meet at the Kiosk at the trailhead at  11am to do the  fun scenic hike.  It should be warmer by then.

Ardra, Betty and company, do not, under any circumstances, bring any of that snow to Q.    :)

Paul, Ann, Chet & Laurie are leaving this morning at 9:00AM to drive up to the Kitt Peak Observatory. If anyone else wants to tag along, we love to have you. Bring a lunch, warm clothes and a thermos of coffee.

A few of us bundled up this morning to brave the cold  temperatures and go "on a Hike."  After the first steep hill climb  we were warmed up and the hike was a delight.  I wanted to get a group shot but alas the group is like herding cats.  So you will have to do with  a few candid shots.
 First off I've included  one of the missing New Year's eve  photos of Barb and Frank. I was also able to capture Richard and Linda ( in focus) as the did their  daily hike around the park!  Good job you two!

The rest of the shots are self explanatory but I would like to  point out how helpful a first time RVForum rally attendee was....Kevin assisted Kim  over a rocky spot where balance was needed.  Just ask Terry  who dunked his foot in the icy river first thing this trip.  Cell service was good on the hike as Terry got a  call from his mother and he walked her through the steps of fixing the batteries in her phone answering  machine while we enjoyed the scenery and snow capped mountains.

You know it's cold when Terry Brewer shoes up in gloves, long pants and tennies.  Brrrrr.

Laurie & I along  with Paul & Ann left the group and took a drive to the Kitt Peak Observatory today. We arrived at 10:30A, just in time to miss the first of 3 tours they offer each day of selected telescopes. We did take the remaining two tours and are now kicking ourselves for not leaving at 08:00 instead of 09:00 to make the first tour of the day also.

The tours we did take were incredibly informative and interesting. If you haven't ever been up to Kitt Peak, it should be a must visit when in Tucson. This is a full day trip and all three tours are worth doing. You have to take your lunch. There is no concessions at the peak.

BTW The yellow sign is for 10 miles of 8% downhill as you leave.

Thanks Chet for the update.  Taking  lunch is  something I almost always do. While we've been to Kitt Peak, I will put it on the list again. But that 8 am departure !!!! ewwwwwww.

While Betty was taking pictures of the group, I was looking in the opposite direction at the mountains which looked quite pretty at the time.  The clouds moved back in and there's fresh snow up there now.

And thank you, Ken and Sheila, for organizing it all.  Too bad you can't control the weather!!  :o  Oh well, moving the chicken dinner up a day was perfect.  It probably was the nicest day of the whole week.  Safe travels.

Glad to see everyone had a great time.  I think this has to have been the worst weather for any of the New's Parties since 199?...when we were first celebrating them together at Brenda.  But good troupers all for hanging in there and enjoying it anyway.  Thanks for the pictures and all the old memories they conjured up.  Happy New Years everyone.  May all your travels in the coming months be worry free and perfect weather.
