Next year’s Roundup has just been announced on the Forest River Owners Group bulletin.  I was keeping it to myself until all the arrangements had been finalized.  And now they have. 


I have reserved 50 full hookups at Cannon Beach RV Resort in Cannon Beach, Oregon.  The dates are Thursday August 27 to Sunday, August 30th


For those who have never been, the Oregon coast is truly a wonderful place to visit during the summer.  Fishing, hiking, biking, kayaking, and dining, all outdoors, with wonderful weather.  The town of Cannon Beach is 3 blocks from our campground and filled with interesting shops, restaurants, and all kinds of handmade items, made by local artists.  For those of you who have attended our last Roundups we are just about 5 miles south of Circle Creek Campground in Seaside, Oregon. 


Lots to see and do as many of you who attended our roundup in 2013 can attest to.  About 10 miles up the coast is Astoria, Oregon, an old shipping port from the 1800’s. Interesting old town to look at or take the local trolley and see it that way.  Lots of interesting old architecture.  Many of the older homes were built by sea captains with widow walks so that their wives could look out to sea and know if their husbands ship was finally arriving.  Some of the voyages took years to complete. 


Sue and I stumbled on an interesting fish and chips restaurant, in Astoria,  which is in a boat on the beach just across from the maritime museum.  Called the Bowpicker.  Always a line outside.  Get there early about 11 or so.  They actually catch the fish themselves in the morning and then prepare it for lunch.  They close when they run out of that mornings catch.  Can’t get much fresher than that.  Excellent reviews on Yelp.  GREAT fish and chips.   


Many other fine restaurants either in Cannon Beach, Seaside or Astoria.  Just across from Astoria, is a huge bridge which takes you into Washington State.  Lots to explore.  Or, as most of us did this year, sat in the campground, checked out each other’s rigs and enjoyed making new friends.   


I was surprised to learn that this year included about 80% who had attended the year before.  Thanks for coming and making it a fun event.

 I have contracted the BBQ restaurant, Buster’s from Portland who will once again bring their 18’ smoker and serve us a fabulous dinner at the campground.  Looking forward to seeing you all again, and making some new friends. 


To make a reservation, please contact Cannon Beach RV Resort at 800-847-2231, or view their website at www.cbrvresort.com.


Ask for Michelle, the manager, who is handling all of our reservations.  Please send me an email after you have made reservations, so I can add you to the dinner list, that Forest River will again graciously provide.   


I know it is early, but the last two roundups sold out very quickly.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at bcowan@hevanet.com or call me at 503-699-9213.


Until next year.  Safe Travels.
