Holiday Campground has informed me that the last two campsites are spoken for and reserved.   So . . . there may be a couple spots in the campground (but not near us) available and if not, Interlochen State Park, a 10-12 minute drive away may have campsites available as well.

Last site: Franckowiak  campsite 199

Any others will be put on a wait list in case someone cancels or if there is another spot that opens in the campground.  I will check to see availability at Interlochen State Park which is about a 10 minute drive away.

Good morning fellow podders!  Jack Kelly here.  This is the first official 2023 TC Rpod Rally email.  Others will follow.  Henceforth, email will be the primary means of communication for attendees.


This year, Holiday Park Campground (campground is technically located just south of Traverse City) allotted us 30 campsites, 10 more than in previous years.  For your info, this year's event marks the 4th Annual TC Rpod Rally.  For the foreseeable future, in coming years expect the TC Rpod Rally to be held in the same place at the same time (Father's Day Weekend).


I'm happy to report that all 30 allotted sites are already spoken for.  Between now and the end of April, we will be maintaining a waiting list in the event of cancellations, which always happen.  Thus far, no one is on our wait list.  When a cancellation does occur between now and the end of April, Holiday Park will so notify me and we will be given a maximum of 2 calendar days to fill same from our waitlist (first come, first serve).  After April 30th, any cancelled sites become the sole property of Holiday Park Campground to fill as they see fit.


So, if you know anyone that still wants to attend, please have them email me at kellycg@aol.com, and have them also provide me with their phone number.


For those who have attended in the past, this year's Rally will in almost all respects mimic the structure of past Rallies.  Additional info regarding the Rally itself will be sent out this Friday


Just so that everyone knows, the following currently have confirmed reservations for the 30 sites we were allotted:


Kelly-  site 189
Tollefson-  site 177
Mertz-  site 142
O'Dell-  site 141
Makela-  site 187
Rosacher-  site 144
Brack-  site 145
Dukatz-  site 188
Schultz-  site 178
Lengle-  site 172
Franckowia- site 199
Breen-  site 143
Perry-  site 173
Nichols-  site 174
Flaten-  site 175
Swartz-  site 184
Stevens-  site 185

Marcus-  site 196

Please direct all future questions regarding the 2023 TC Rpod Rally directly to me at kellycg@aol.com.   Next email to be sent out will be this Friday, April 14th.



Best regards,
Jack Kelly

Dear 2023 Traverse City R-pod Rally Attendees-


Jack Kelly here on behalf of this year's Traverse City (TC) R-pod Rally, which is now just 2 months away!!!



Here's what you can expect:


As with last year, Rally Central will be Site 177, occupied by Jim and Diane Tollefson.  All scheduled activities are expected to occur on site 177, or at the pavilion directly across from site 177.


Many of you will be staying all 3 nights over Father's Day Weekend, checking in on June 15th and checking out on June 18th .  Know in advance that there will be lots of down time purposely built into the schedule to give everyone an opportunity to visit and enjoy all things that Traverse City has to offer during most of Friday and Saturday.


For starters, Thursday night will be intentionally low key.  Feel free to drop by site 177, or not, for a very informal bonfire gathering.  No activities are scheduled for that evening.


Friday you will essentially have the entire day to yourself.   However, a possible optional potluck breakfast, which would be something new this year, is under consideration for Friday morning.  Starting around 6 pm, we will have a potluck dinner at site 177, followed of course by a bonfire.  Hot dogs, really tasty hotdogs, will be the main entree and will be provided by your hosts free of charge.  If you don't like hotdogs, really tasty hotdogs, then please bring your own entree.  Also please bring a desert or dish to pass, your own beverage, and your own table service.  We'll also plan on distributing any Forest River giveaways on Friday evening by picking names out of a hat.  


After dinner we'll have a Q &A about all things R-pods.  We will also have some Forest River giveaways for attendees. Thereafter, the rest of the night will be spent around the bonfire getting to know one another.


Saturday we will have the chance to tour each others R-pods to see what people have done with their wonderful homes away from home.  Participation, of course, is totally optional and will start at 11 am and last until 1 or 2.  Thereafter, you're on your own until 6 pm, when we will once again gather at site 177 and most likely have another informal potluck using food that was left over from Friday night.  


Around 7 pm the fun will start.  


All attendees are requested to bring a gift, if possible from your local area, valued at no more than $20 for our back-by-popular-demand Chinese auction.  Gifts selected by all will be subject to being stolen, or permanently borrowed if you will, up to a maximum of 3 times by others.  Participation in this Chinese auction is entirely optional, but is also highly recommended!!!


After the Chinese auction, those wishing to do so will once again gather around site 177 for another fabulous bonfire opportunity to chat and exchange stories with old and newfound R-pod friends.


Sunday of course brings checkout time, which is no later than 11 am.  Beginning at 9:30 am, however, we will hold a non-denominational service, again at site 177, that should last no more than 30 minutes.  Please feel free to join us if you are so inclined.


And that folks is all she wrote.  Also likely expect some corn hole contests and possibly an informal euchre tournament to occur during those hours on Friday or Saturday when there's nothing officially scheduled.


Very much looking forward to meeting all of you. Please feel free to post any questions or comments you might have, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.  


Best regards to all!  Hopefully will see you all in Traverse City a mere 2 months from now.  Until then, take care and safe travels.


Jack and Gail Kelly, site 189
Jim and Diane Tollefson, site 177 
Jay and Debbie Raupp, site 176
