Watch this thread for updates on the upcoming rally, January 9-13, 2013 at the Riverside County Fair and National Date Festival grounds in Indio California. Hopefully we can get some Rally participants to post comments here.


And...
If you're planning to attend the Western Area Rally here's a link to the PDF of the pocket guide "Rally at a glance":

This will give you an idea as to the many Seminars, Crafts and actvities there.

See you in Indio!

If you are in the SW during the time period that this rally is being held, I would like to recommend that you attend this rally. This is (IMHO) one of the best run and well organized regional FMCA rallies. We have attended for many years (but not 2013, boo hoo) and have enjoyed the weather, the company and the entertainment every year.
Good times had by all!

Despite a serious dust storm on Thursday and a couple of the usual glitches -- we once again had a great Western Area rally -- just shy of 1100 families in attendance. Lots of good friends and super entertainment. We had to postpone our parade until Saturday due to that storm but it was still one of the highlights -- the Circus theme really generated creativity. Who knew you could do that with a golf cart and a Roadtrek? (And despite the excreting elephant). It was terrific to see and meet all the National Officers in attendance. On a serious note, we all hope for a full recovery for our Senior VP Richard Gibbs who was hospitalized just before the rally started. All the best wishes to him and his family.

Bumping this post - thanks for the compliment Bill!

 

Hope you can make the Dogpatch USA 2014 Western Area Rally

 

Shameless plug:

I've heard a lot of folks just come for the Ice Cream Social!

We've already sent in our money for the 2014 Rally, but haven't seen any confirmation, or other correspondence yet - hopefully we'll be seeing something soon!

Same thing for us, CC got charged - went in to register again and it said we were already registered so I think we're good.
