3/29/2020 -- DATE CHANGE FROM MAY 2020 TO OCTOBER 2020 DUE TO CORONAVIRUS.

Weston Bend State Park, northwest of Kansas City, will again be the site for an R-Pod Rally!.
Will you join us? The official Rally will be Thursday Oct 8 - Sunday Oct 11 but we plan to be there Oct 6-12. Come when you can!


Of course - the rally is not only for those who live nearby or in the midwest, or just for those who attended last year - ya'll come! 😀 Pets and children welcome.

RESERVATION WINDOW IS OPEN! This is a small campground, and fall is a beautiful, busy time in the area, and the campground will likely fill fast.
April 22 update re reservations - the electric campsites are all booked.  Let me know if you would like to be placed on a waiting list.  We currently have 20 sites known to be reserved by Podders.

Weston Bend State Park sits high above the banks of the Missouri River, with hiking and bike trails with nice views. (No river views from the campground itself).

Water is available at three stations around the campground but NOT at each site -- Remember to fill your tank prior to setting up camp. 😏
Dump station and nice shower/restroom facility available. There is also one vault toilet building.
The historic small town of Weston is just down the road, and it is a delightful place to visit! "The Best Small Town in Missouri." Tour wineries, a brewery, a distillery, a creamery and sheep dairy farm; shop nice galleries, boutiques, and antique stores; and dine at a variety of local restaurants. Here's the link to Weston: https://www.westonmo.com

This will be a pretty low-key Rally giving you plenty of time to relax, hike, have fun in Weston, or just get to know other Podders. We will have some pot-lucks and campfires, and details will be posted down the road.

One event we will plan again for those who wish to participate, is a HOMETOWN GIFT EXCHANGE. Bring a wrapped item (one per person or one per Pod) that represents something about your hometown, and is in the $10-15 range. Enclose a note with the item with your name, and explain how this relates to your hometown. This event will not be mandatory, and no need to sign up. Either bring something, or don't. Smile

Scroll down past the several posts where I have removed info specific to the May reservations (I couldn't just delete the posts entirely).

Keep watching for updates.

Chuck and I have reserved Site #18 again as "Rally Central."
Right now there are electric sites available near Site 18!
When making reservations, those over 65 can get a $2/night reduction. 😀
There are no park entrance fees.

***ONCE YOU MAKE YOUR RESERVATION, please post your dates and site # here or msg me. ✔

Oh, and, if you make a reservation and find you need to cancel, please post that here or msg me, including your site number, BEFORE CANCELING so maybe someone planning to participate can be ready to reserve your site. Thanks!!!

WESTON BEND RALLY EVENTS -- here's a tentative schedule. More details (times, etc) to come later. Most of this will be held at Site #18, Rally Central. We will have some tables and EZups set up, but you will need to bring your own chairs, beverages, plates and cutlery, and serving spoons/forks as needed for food items.

It is expected that many will want to spend time in the town of Weston, at the wineries, at the distillery, and/or enjoying the state park trails and things. You may want to make plans to do some of this with other Podders - so let me encourage you to start those conversations in this group event site - create a new post around a particular activity and see who shares that interest. Everything WE are planning is totally OPTIONAL. :-)

Chuck and I look forward to seeing some of you again, and meeting the others!

THURSDAY-SUNDAY --
- Evening happy hour prior to dinner
- Campfire after dinner

THURSDAY --
- Podluck dinner -- grilled hot dogs/brats provided; bring a side dish or dessert to share.

FRIDAY --
- Mid-morning Jerky smoking demo, by Elmer (last year's campers will be happy to see he is doing this again)
- Podluck dinner -- bring your favorite soup/chili/stew item to share. (If you bring something else, it will NOT be turned away). 

SATURDAY --
- Podluck breakfast (will not be tooooo early!)
- Mid-morning Pod Crawl Pod Tours
- Totally Podluck dinner -- bring whatever! Leftovers OK, including breakfast items. Clean out your fridge if you want.

SUNDAY --
- TBD. More later.
