Just heard back from Bob Byrne @ FROG and he would be pleased to work with us again ... so this will be a FROG event! He also noted that there was a lot of interest on the member survey for future events in Ontario/Quebec, Vancouver BC, and Winnipeg MB. We have indicated our willingness to help out with any Ontario/Quebec campouts. We will keep you all posted.

I don't know what the makeup of your attendees was/is, but if you have friends that own non-FR products, be aware that they will not be allowed to attend a FROG rally. That is the very reason several larger annual rallies for podders have not gone FROG. The support is great, the swag is large, but the rule may be harsh if you have members who may have attended a rally for years, only to be told now, "you sold your FR, or never had an FR", "you're out".

Fair enough furpod.
Last year all of the attendees in 54 sites were FR owners.
However, as the campground is a Provincial Park there is no restriction on their ability to camp at the same time.  They just wouldn't get any FROG swag.
Cheers,
David

That works.. I know of an Airstream and a few others who happened to be camping right at the FROG International in Goshen one year..  ;) Their pod owner sibling paid for a couple "extra campers".. so they did some tours and ate some meals, just didn't sleep in a FR product, or in the rally CG area. I am not sure that will be possible in the future at the FROG Intl. since they now take the whole 800 sites..

Also, assuming you are mostly pod centered your self, just in case you don't know, this is the least, by far, active pod site on the 'net. The other pod forum has way more traffic, and the FaceBook group has 3500 members, and hundreds if not thousands of posts everyday. They also have a rallies and campouts area that organizes them by date.. Posting up in there would be good I think.

Thanks furpod for the helpful tips.
You will find my identical postings on all of those sites.  Last year we ended up with about 26 R-Pods and had a blast, especially when we did our Sunday morning walk-about to see all of the different models.
Look forward to meeting you sometime.

Greetings,

I happened to be on the FROG Newsletter website and have noticed that FROG is now holding a 2017 Canada 150th Anniversary Rally in Kingston, ON from June 15-18th.

It really makes no sense for us to also be organizing an Ontario FROG Rendez-vous at the end of October 2017 so I will put ours on hold. 

Cheers,

David
