I noted a request for rally dates for next year in the previous thread for 2016. Therefore, I am starting a new thread for the 2017 Rally.

We have finalised the dates for next year's Rally - July 16th to July 23rd. The location is the same campground, Shipshewana South Park , Shipshewana, Indiana.

The 2016 Rally was the first organised by the ROG and by all reports was the best one yet. Planning for 2017 started at Shipshewana and John has a huge group of volunteers, so I expect even more improvements and new initiatives for 2017.

As per previous years, please call the campground (260-768-4669) to make a reservation, ensuring you mention the Redwood Rally. Do not make a reservation online, as you will not receive the discount. The campground closes November 1st until the New Year and even the office is not manned during this period.

John has reserved the entire campground, so lets build some momentum and fill the campground next July. John will provide further details, when available.

Steve,

We are still considering them, but after the RW/CR experience of cancelling all but 1, due to poor registration, we want to get it right the first time. We still have loads to learn about hosting rallies and want to make the National Rally even better, hard to believe, but that is John's objective.

Once John and his legion of volunteers advise they are ready to expand to a Regional Rally we will make it happen. Will it be 2017 - probably not.

I have just made arrangement for storage down in Lynden again for when we hit the coast at end of October. Terry is home about the same time, so how about a NW social in November.

Steve, the date change was requested by RW Mangement. If kept at the end of the month there would be no one from RW or the Service Center in attendance.

Other than reservation at the campground, do I need to register for the rally?

Sally,

At this time, the only requirement is to register with the campground. However, good luck getting in touch with them, as I have being trying now for about 2 weeks. They also close from November 1st to mid January.

I left a message at the Shipshewana campground a few weeks ago, they called me last week and confirmed my 2017 Rally Reservation.

I have a structural problem with my Redwood, up front on the left side where they put the "Cut" and "H" Trim the wall is starting to bulge and get a step between both sides of the cut.
I contacted Redwood customer service and sent pictures. They reviewed the pictures and said they needed to get it to the service center to repair. I told them I would not be back in Indiana till the 2017 Rally.
They said that would be fine but would need to get it in the shop for at least a week prior to the Rally.
Well I got to thinking and talked to a travel agent friend and have worked out an Alaska trip with their group which includes 5 days of tour bus and rail travel seeing Alaska and then a 7 Day Alaskan cruise. The trip would depart to Fairbanks, AK on July 4th, 2017 end in Vancouver BC on July 16th, 2017.
I contacted Redwood and asked if I could drop my Redwood off Monday July 3rd and pick it up on Monday July 17th, then I could move to the Redwood Rally for the rest of the week.
Redwood customer service said that should work and they would confirm.

Looking forward to a great summer :)

Congratulations on the Alaska trip!! It's on my list soon. Looking forward to hear how RW does the repairs. We were one of the lucky ones that had not developed this stress crack BUT last month on our way to Disney it finally showed up on the door side upper slide. Not quite a straight crack but on an angle slanted towards the front.
I will try the moldings in spring to hide it and hope it doesn't turn into what yours did. Sounds like you have a few broken welds or maybe they just forgot to weld.

Rally Week this year will be Mon-Sat July 17-23 with the official start of planned events on Wednesday. We've decide to start one day earlier this year because there was just too much crammed into 3 days the last couple of years.

I will plan the schedule so that Wednesday won't be a "Can't miss this" day for those that won't be in until Thursday.

There will be more on the Rally in the January Newsletter. We should also have the Rally Registration form ready for our ROG website and also the Redwood Website around early February. Some "tweeking" is necessary to make things easier to keep track of.
