May 23 – 26, 2008
“Potential” event for Memorial Day weekend.
Joe Van said that he wasn’t spending another Memorial Day
weekend at home. If there
is no scheduled event for Memorial Day weekend in 2008, then he will be
at the Ocala Ranch R.V. Resort, and everyone is welcome to join him.
He said everyone can just pay at the office and we can park
together. We don’t have
to have anyone in charge to have an event.
Buffalo Bob disagreed. A
lengthy discussion ensued.
October 26 - 28, 2007
“Gilligan’s Island for Halloween” at
Sunshine Key Campground. Mile
marker 39 on U.S. 1 in the Florida Keys. 39 miles north of Key West. Van Show, Trick or Treat, Costume
contest, Best Decorated campsite, music and more. $90 per van, $120 per van with sleep-in trailer.
Extra persons $10 per person.
Info: contact Earl Morris 954-472-0461 email@example.com
or Six-pack & Agnes 407-892-6796 firstname.lastname@example.org Linard noted that, the special rate (available for up
to 5 days ahead and 5 days afterwards) will be $33.45 per van per night.
RV’s, Motor homes, 5th wheel trailers, and vans
pulling sleep-in trailers will cost $50.17 per night.
Also, we will not have the usual Daylight Savings Change (DST)
“Fall Back” this year. The
DST will be in early November from now on.
Lew said we’re actually shooting ourselves in the
foot because we’re hosting the Keys event in October and the 2008 CofC
Meeting in February, just 4 months later.
Many folks can’t afford to go to both, especially with current
gas prices. Buffalo Bob
said that the Keys is pricing itself out of range of the vanning
community. Lew commented
that, if you just put aside $2 per day, you would have $730 at the end
of a year to spend on vanning events for the next year.
Dan’o suggested that we have a “preparation”
meeting for the CofC 2008 meeting at the Labor Day event in Ocala. Cale suggested that anyone interested in a “golf outing”
at the Labor Day event contact him.
