Pre-registration refund checks for "Back to 1987" will be mailed out Monday, October 9.  You will have to register with the Jolly Roger RV Resort directly.  One night deposit upon booking.

Mook has worked tirelessly and found a spot for us in the Keys that can accommodate us.  It is the Jolly Roger RV Resort , at mile marker 59.5 on U.S. 1 in the Florida Keys, 10 miles north of Sunshine Key Campground, where we usually have our event.  For reference, mile marker 59.5 is on the North side of Vaca Key, about 9 miles south of the town of Layton, which is on Long Key.  Jolly Roger RV Resort is barely open to the public right now, but Mook has let them know of our situation and they are allowing us to come and play.  They are on the Bayside, which will be on the right side of the road if you're headed South on U.S. 1 and they have a pool. (Hopefully it will be open, she forgot to ask).

So, if you want to go down to the Keys for a good time with your fellow vanners on, or around October 27 - 29, 2017 for a laid back weekend, or however lively a weekend the vanners want to make it.

The rates are as follows:  $69.99 plus tax 12.5 % per night

           Discounts for Good Sam members 10% If 10 or more vans book, we will all get a 25% discount per night . 1 Van or sleeping unit per site.  No multiple tents per site.   Rate is for 4 people per site
