Plan Ahead for 2018
Starting the year off we will once again have the ever popular Tampa Supershow Rally and Quartzsite "Gathering in the Desert". They are both scheduled for mid-January. Watch for more info on these later this summer.
Our Caravan Hosts are working on plans for a mid-July 2018 Calgary Stampede & Canadian Rockies Caravan. Dave & Joanne Killey along with Ron & Wanda Llewellyn will be hosting this event. Keep an eye on future editions of the Happenings as well as the Konnection magazine for more information in early fall. We anticipate registration to begin early December.
Announcing the 2018 International Rally
We are pleased to announce we will be holding the 2018 International Rally in Gillette, Wyoming. Rally parking will be June 22 & 23 and rally dates June 24-30. We will once again allow boon-docking for $10. This is a unique area with many national parks within driving distance so this could be a great starting point or ending point to do a lot of exploring and traveling in the western portion of the country. We are expecting to put together an extensive package of tours - Custer's Last Stand, Devil's Tower, etc. We also are doing some preliminary planning for a Calgary Stampede Special Event and maybe a pre-rally Western Caravan. Keep watching future editions of The Happenings later this fall for more details.
