New Special Event Rally Planned for 2021
The Ark Encounter and Creation Museum.
Following the 2021 International Rally in Lewisburg, West Virginia we will have a Special Event Rally in Kentucky hosted by Ralph & Nancy Dennis, Kentucky State Directors. Rally dates are July 24-28.We have had requests for shorter events and feel this unique rally fulfills that request.
Included in the event are 4 nights camping with 50 amp full hookup sites. Three meals consisting of a bar-b-que dinner, a country ham dinner and one continental breakfast as well as a cake & ice cream social. Time is built in for you to schedule and purchase your own tickets to the Creation Museum and/or the Ark Encounter to enable you to choose the amount of time spent in both locations. The rally host is also currently working on adding in several optional tours.
Cost for the event is: $435 for 2 in a unit; $315 for 1 in a unit; and $120 per guest in your unit. Tickets to the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum is not included in the rally fee.
This is an easy drive from Lewisburg immediately following the International Rally. Since you will be in the area for International we hope you plan on joining this great event!
Details of the event are now on the website. Reservations will begin on Monday, February 15th, at 10:00 am eastern time thru the Klub Calendar menu option.
Grand Circle Caravan
As most of you know we had to postpone the Grand Circle Caravan to 2021. The caravan will meet in Mancos, Colorado on September 26 and we will depart Moab, Utah 22 days later on October 18. Campgrounds should all have full hook up and 50 amp except one campground which is 30 amp.
You will be in Colorado, Arizona and Utah on this trip. We will start our adventure at Mesa Verde National Park (NP) with its Cliff Dwellings, where 800 years ago tens of thousands of people once lived. Next to Durango to travel to Silverton on a bus tour and take the train back down seeing truly beautiful mountain scenery. Then on to Goulding’s Monument Valley where you will take a ride out into the valley to see the famous monuments you have seen in all those old western movies.
Next, we will spend some time in Page, Arizona on Lake Powell with a narrated boat ride into tall canyons and between grassy areas of this tremendously deep lake. We plan to take you to the un-commercialized North Rim of the Grand Canyon NP where you don’t want to miss sunset from the lodge’s porch area. This is where you will see wildlife and fields of beautiful Aspens. We don’t want you to miss Zion NP where you will look up to see its beauty, and then Bryce NP for a spectacular sunrise as you are looking down at the hoodoos.
From here we will travel through to Moab with a short stop in Capital Reef NP. You will be able to explore one day and then the next day drive your units through it to Moab, Utah. There is so much to see in Moab including Arches and, Canyonlands NPs plus Dead Horse Point State Park. You will also enjoy a boat ride on the Colorado River in the evening while the guide points out interesting rock formations and tells a story.
We must warn you that there will be extensive walking and not always on flat, level, or paved surfaces. At the cliff dwellings you will need to climb a ladder to exit and at Antelope Canyon there is a metal grate staircase to enter into the canyon. If you are able bodied this should be no problem.
Rally hosts will be Jerry & Phyllis Rose. Information will be added to our website in the next couple weeks. Rally fee for this caravan will be $4,500 for two in a unit and $2,820 for one in a unit.
As this was originally scheduled and cancelled in 2020 it will be offered first to those that were registered when we cancelled it. Details can be found on under the Klub Calendar by clicking on event name.
Remaining spots will be opened to members thru the Klub Calendar menu option on Monday, February 15 at 10:00 am EST.
Our rally hosts, Jerry & Sue Argabrite, are beginning to work on rescheduling the Black Hills Rally. We anticipate it will be held in early September 2021 before the Grand Circle Caravan as we feel it would be a great leadoff for that trip. At this time we plan to open it for reservations in early April. As this was originally scheduled for 2020 it will be open first to those registered when we cancelled it, then remaining open spots will be available to our members. More information will be share when details are completed.
