Ooops...

Unfortunately, unless you arrive early, the Texas Redwood Regional Rally dates will not coincide with Cantons Trades Days...

March 3-5, 2016 (Thu, Fri, Sat)

firstmondaycanton.com/first-monday-trade-days

The last time we attended this flea market, it took 3 days to get through it all.

Alas, at least this time, we won't be able to drag tons of stuff home that we have no where to store. BUT IT IS FUN TO LOOK!!!

Good point about the Canton First Monday. Should anyone want to attend part or all of the First Monday event which is 4 days, you will need to make campground reservations for that quickly. The cost per night is considerably higher since lots of folks come in just for that event.

We hope that the owners would like to participate in this first Regional Rally ... and as the registration page opens soon, please sign up.

That's only 2 hours from our house and the kids are out for Spring Break! We'll probably see about getting there the weekend before to visit the Trades Days...

I just hope that we're not all buried in 4' of snow thanks in part to El Nino!

Looking forward to attending this year's rally. Had a great overall experience at the 2015 rally. I am hoping DW business travel will allow her time to attend as last year business plans changed at the last moment and she missed the great technical seminars, plant tour and the nearby Amish stores. We plan to book for two weeks so we can visit all the surrounding areas.

Hi everyone!

This is a reminder that the Regional Rally registration page is now open. With Texas being our first rally.... it is really important for those of you who are interested in coming to Mill Creek RV Resort to go ahead and sign up if you can. Our deadline to give back the unused portion of sites is rapidly approaching (which is 30 days before we arrive) This doesn't mean that you can't try to sign up after the 30 day deadline....but it does mean there is a possibility the resort may be fully booked by the time you do sign up. So please.... if you are considering coming....do so in a timely manner.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Good Morning LadyEcooper,

Did we ever get a final count on those attending (pre-registered) this Canton, TX rally?

Redwood?

Crossroads?

Redwood RV and CRV Regional Rallies 2016 3 years 1 month ago #12

Today we have 4 Redwoods signed up for the pre-rally maintenance class. No Crossroads units.
We now have a total of 10 rigs for the main Rally (all Redwoods). We had one cancel a few days ago.
I have received word a few more could be registering soon....so the numbers could rise. I have hope!! :-)

Tomorrow's the big day for those attending the Canton, Texas rally...

For those that may already be there, how are you fairing out with the weather? Looks like Thursday afternoon and Friday day may offer some relief. Saturday and Sunday look fantastic. Are we missing anything yet?

Things are a little wet...around 4-5" of rain. The facilities are VERY nice. Super clean facilities, nice cement pads with beautiful green grass! Five of us are taking the RV Maintenance course. Pretty much covering all the different systems on our coaches. The instructor is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I highly recommend folks sign up for the training if you are able to attend any of the upcoming Rallies. Looking forward to our remaining training, and the start of the Rally! The weather is supposed to be improving toward the end of week!

Your weather report is much more optimistic than the NWS. I dread driving from Johnson City to Canton with a 70-80 percent chance of rain and TSs.

A bad day camping is better than any great day at work. Right?!

See you there!

Well, we had a soggy start to the 2016 Texas Rally; but it did not dampen our spirits at all. Starting with the Dessert Meet and Greet, where fellow RW owners introduced themselves and chatted the night away.

Friday was full of seminars and opportunities to learn from each other.

The TX RV Professor - Terry Cooper gave a seminar on "The Amazing RV Refrigerator" and later on in the afternoon (after a lunch break at a local eatery which was delicious, by the way!), Ron Russell (Titan Guy) gave a seminar on the "History of Disc Brakes" and their benefits, followed by Evada Cooper (Lady E) and her seminar on the RV kitchen. We found out how NOT to trip circuit breakers by turning on hairdryers, microwaves and coffeemakers while running the a/c in the TX heat.

Later that evening, there was a smorgasbord of dishes for everyone to try for the Potluck Dinner, and the discussions and chats continued through the evening.

Saturday we were able to sleep in before our next seminar by Terry on "Volts?, Amps? and Purple Monkeys? Watts does it all mean?". Purple Monkeys???!!! Yep. See all the fun you are missing?!

We then had a catered lunch courtesy of Redwood, and also a visit from Redwoods' corporate team member and the local Redwood Dealership, where they answered questions on an individual level to those in attendance.

Ron Russell again educated us on a talk about "tire safety and how to fix your trailer tire problems". The guys had their ears to the rubber during the talk. :P

Later tonight, another potluck dinner and a chance to deepen the friendships that we've already made. Everyone is going to walk away with great memories and the knowledge that we made history by being the 1st group to participate in a Redwood Regional Rally. It's not even over and we're already looking forward to next years' event!

For those unable to attend this year's regional rally...

We all had a great time and the seminars were fantastic. So much to learn!

Many thanks go out to the Coopers (Terry and Lady E), Ron (Titan Guy), Steve Anderson (President of WorkKamper News), Nino with Redwood, and to Mill Creek Resort for allowing us to stay in such a fine complex.

And another thanks goes out to Norm (WorkKamper at Mills Creek Resort) for sharing his personal WorkKamping experiences.

And finally, yet another thank you to all those who support ROG. Without you, this would not be possible. This is what makes owning a Redwood awesome!

We also want to thank Redwood for their support of this organization and rallies!

We look forward to many more years of meeting new friends and sharing experiences with everyone. What a great community of Owners!

Many Blessings to All!
