British Columbia Dogwood Klub – Presidents
Hello from Vancouver, British Columbia. The BC Dogwood Klub has started working on our next rally. So far, we know we want it to be in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia – a very prosperous area with many wineries. We also know we want it in early June before the summer rush. We picked that region for the wonderful June weather, the central location and a wide variety of activities in the area.
However, what we’re finding is that RV parks we’ve been contacting are hesitant, or outright refusing, to let us reserve sites months ahead of time. We have also been warned about firm commitments and 100% payment at time of booking. Firm commitments? Really hard until we get registrations back.
For past rallies we have always booked several sites, confirmed the number one month before the rally and then paid when the Treasurer shows up. A question: do you have any ideas or suggestions on how to speak with RV parks when planning a Kountry Klub rally months in the future? How do you handle the ones who insist on payment at time of booking? Please send me an email.
Stay healthy and drive safe. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Take care.
