We are interested in attending a rally again, we went to the one last Fall (first time ever attending a rally). Have no idea how to get started planning one.

It's easy. Anyone can do it. Write a post asking who might be interested attending, perhaps propose a date and place, and see who responds. Usually there will be give-and-take among the interested parties to decide on particulars. The advantage to initiating discussions for a rally is that you may have more influence on where and when than others. But it's worth knowing a good campground that will be able to accomodate a rally. Getting plans and reservations made early enough is the key.

Although the weather didn't agree, we had a great time at last years fall rally and would be interested in coming back this year if it fits in.

Since no one has thrown out a date, how about August. Lets see if this works for people and then we'll go forward with a location. I know we are camping one weekend in August at Sleepy Hollow State Park, which is north of Lansing. I run in a 10 mile trail run that is put on every year at Sleepy Hollow.

It is a great run, if you like running through the woods and getting wet and muddy, I did it last year and had a blast. I ran a marathon a couple of years ago, but have been doing alot of off road races, mostly between 5 and 10 miles.

We'd be interested in attending an August rally in Michigan. Any thoughts of camping near Lake Michigan? It's my understanding the Lake is much prettier on the Michigan side than from Wisconsin where we are.

How about a place like Covert Park Beach & Campground? We have never stayed there, but it looks like it is right on lake Michigan, between South Haven and Benton Harbor. Looking at their map, they have a large pavilion that could maybe serve host to a potluck dinner. Maybe one of our Michigan friends has stayed there and could report on the facility.

That place looks nice, its small too which means it is probably quiet. Never been there though.
