Well folks, I met with Jimmy Bass that is in charge of running Ole Gillim Mill. This guy is great and is doing everything he can to make our rally great!!
He is going to ensure we have a good bon fire area, drinking is fine (we just need to keep the "big boys" rules in effect), allowed us use of all areas (even a nice field for reindeer games
), pets are welcomed, and he knows some folks ride with weapons (just please don't discharge any guns at the site
), there is a shower/bath house, a screened in kitchen with prep area, and we are allowed to even fish at the pond. This thread is to explain the rally to the new folks, get a running list of folks that plan on showing up, get a list of things folks will need when they get here, and list things that folks can bring if they are able.
The CRAP rally started for Ural and Dnepr owners to get together for the weekend. It has always been about the rigs, people, and food. Those that live close by and those trailering in provide food and any items those riding in would need. We don't do this for anyone to make any money, but make it as inexpensive as possible while still having good folks, food, drink, and rigs. We do ask that those camping donate to help pay for the site. It does pain me to say that we will ask those camping to donate $15 per tent site for the weekend. Others that want to donate a little can as well. But don't let any cost keep you from coming-you get here and we'll take care of ya!! This is the most we have ever asked for, but to have a place that we can do what we want, it does cost more. We have had it every year at Jordan Lake, NC, but have found last year that some of the things we wanted to do were frowned upon....
. This year it will be held at Ole Gillim Mill http://olegilliammill.org/
in Sanford, NC on May 3-5, 2013 (unless the poll changes over the next couple of weeks). So, let me know who is coming and number of folks coming with you. For anyone riding in, let us know what we could have ready for you when you get here (especiality any speciality needs). The following items are needed for those that can bring them:
Cases of water
Bon Fire Wood
Different kinds of fruit
Ice, Ice, Ice
Any covered dishes
Anything else you can think of....
Now lets get this done!!!!!!!
