You used to own a Thor product
You are thinking of owning a Thor product
You can spell Thor

We've had folks show up for part of the day without their rig. That's fine, too. The only thing that would exclude you would be a bad attitude. Can't allow that!

Just a reminder that Oct 5th is just 54 days away, not too early to call Kelsey and lock in your reservation. (See #1 in this thread.) A possible surprise in in the works. With or without that, a good time will be had by all!

Sunshine Travel is a nice park, near I-95 and Sebastian Blvd. There's Dairy Queen, McDs and Raceway at that intersection. Webasso Beach is about a 20 minute drive, Sebastian is about the same distance.

There is no fee, but no entertainment either, except excellent conversation provided by you! Most of the folks at our Brooksville gathering said they'd come again.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed having the Thor rep at our spring gathering, but I can't promise a repeat performance. There will be surprises, however. Stay tuned for more about that closer to October.

Reservations can be made directly through Encore. Call Kelsey at 877-350-7619. Her current schedule is Thursday - Sunday 12-8pm and Monday 10-6pm. Off Tuesday and Wednesday. She'll take your cc deposit for the first night. The rally rate is $31/night. (Passport doesn't apply in Oct.) We don't expect to run out of room, but it is first come, first served.
We've decided to go and meet some folks, but are having trouble reaching Kelsey to book reservations. We've got a severe case of phone tag going. Does she have an email that I can send her a request?

You are not the first to be frustrated with Kelsey. Part of the challenge is she takes Tuesday and Wednesday as her weekend. Sorry you are caught in phone tag.

Here is her email: kelsey_nelson@equitylifestyle.com

Looking forward to having you join the group!

I will bring my Cricket hanging off the beefed up receiver. I've gotten tons of questions, comments, and stares, including park rangers.

I have no control and make no excuses for the reservation issue. Like Jerry said, hang in there. Just found out Kelsey had a death in the family and was out.

She'll be in on Saturday and Sunday, then off until next Thursday and Friday. She'll be out from Sept 13-20.

Would the folks from the AL/GA line who were next to me in the spring please drop me an email or PM? I have a question for you.

Great Don! Looking forward to seeing you at the Vero Beach campground. Counting you we now have 13 rigs reserved. Several returning folks, and some new ones. Should have a few more in the coming weeks. Plenty of room for more! Ya'all come on down!

We'll be coming in Thursday and leaving Sunday. Looking to meet everyone, check out the rigs, maybe get some ideas and/or questions answered and give my 2 cents when I can.

Perhaps an informal time for everybody to meet would be good. Also, if someone wants bonus credits to deposit in First National Bank of Credits they could make some of those the dreaded name tags, LOL.

Looking forward to meeting you. Informal is pretty much the agenda for the entire weekend. We' will have a potluck on Friday night, followed by get acquainted conversation. On Saturday, we'll meet for more directed exchange. Then we'll have Saturday dinner together, probably catered in, followed by more discussion. You'll have time to share and time to listen. The group is small enough that the dreaded name tags haven't been necessary. (You are welcome to wear one, though!)

Thanks. Good to know. So Friday will be potluck (I'll see if the wife will make her famous fudge) and Saturday will be catered in. I'm assuming BYOB both nights.

I'd like to have a targeted charity during the event. How about South Florida Make A Wish? I'd be happy to do the collections, unless somebody else wants to do it or has strong connections to this or some other charity. I'm thinking it should be a local South Florida charity at the minimum and of course 100% informal. Thoughts?

Agreed.

It's just something I like to do when I go to fun things with others that don't cost much. I'll just make a contribution by myself.

RVMichael-Appreciate your input. We all have our favorite charities that we support. We'll discuss your suggestion among the group, and could possibly include that in future events.

There will be a rally near you when you arrange it! Pick a place and date, and put it out on the forum.

Our fall and spring rallies are unsanctioned, loosely organized and kept intentionally simple. The format for our Florida gatherings is laid out in the first post in this thread. You are welcome to use any part of it, and modify to fit.

I'm not retired, so that's all I can do, and since we have return folks, it must be enough! It's great meeting forum friends in person!
