Monaco rally explained...

Loving Annie wants to know what a Monaco rally is. Well, let me 'splain it. First, here are three Monaco coaches all in a row at the fall '07 rally in Dillard, GA. The close one is our moho...
And here we are again this past October in Franklin, NC...where we had snow!
So that is what a few Monacos look like, now what is a Monaco rally? Well, it is when a 'club' of Monaco owners get together to meet new folks, eat, see old friends, eat, have a bit of entertainment, eat, have a business meeting, eat, laugh, and make plans for the next rally or two! There are literally dozens of various Monaco clubs all over the country. We actually belong to two of them, this one and a caravan group (that's a whole nuther story!), as well as belonging to another camping group that allows any brand of moho to join. It is a great way to make new friends from all over the country as any of these gatherings.
This is our first time to be rally masters of this particular club, Monaco Travelers. It has definitely been OJT (on the job training). We have a total of 30 coaches registered, with 59 folks attending. We officially begin on Thursday, but we and our co-rally masters will gather at the cg on Wednesday to put on the final touches and hit Sam's for some last-minute needed items.
My big project today is to finish up the rally schedule of events, then print, copy, collate (I miss my copier from home) 30 packets of info, and check my to-do list VERY carefully! Anyone wanna come help me??? I have to put together 30 goody bags.
Life is good. Have a great Monday, y'all!

I would help you if I lived nearby, but alas I'm in California. I so relate to what you are doing though. With me going through our yacht club chairs I'm either planning or executing some function somewhere.

Have fun. I know you will do just fine. Big hug. :)

Just like airstream rallies... they are rolling parties, potlucks, and fun!

Very nice, I admire those rigs as they pass by our little Class C, very beautiful.
