:D Mark your calendars and then join us at the beautiful Lake Casitas in the Ojai Valley for our annual Fiberglass Rally.

 

The dates for our Rally this year will be  Thursday through Monday, October 29-November 2nd, 2015

 

Some folks come early and stay late, as they can and you're welcome to do the same.

 

So mark your calendars for now and when I find out when we can call for camping reservations, I will post this for everyone.

Paula,

 

Made reservation for Oct 28 thru Oct 31 (Wednesday thru Saturday).

 

We will be in site #45.

 

Did you send out an e-mail about this rally?  I did not get one.

 

I was checking for parts on Casita web site and noticed the rally by accident. I know from past experience we had to reserve in May.

 

Thanks,

 

Dave & Elizabeth

We have the original back cushions for Casita Bella (17' SD) - blue-ish original upholstery fabric and in amazingly good condition.  If someone coming to the rally wants them (free - did I mention free?) we will bring them along, just let me know.

What a great weekend! It's always so much fun meeting new folks and getting together with our camping buddies! You guys out-did-it this year!

I loved all the suggestions folks made and we put into action. The instantly made Tangle art class hosted by Karen, the 2nd night of the Talking Stick suggested by Barbara and hosted by Frank, the rap sessions Saturday afternoon and by the campfire hosted by Dan, Rick, Nancy and Paulette (I hope I didn't miss anyone and got these names right). What fun having these new events to our Rally! This is what it's all about.....folks sharing your love of what you do and what talents you have, with us. I can't wait to see what 2016 brings.

Many thanks to those who stepped up and shared this year, with us, the many events we had. Nothing goes unnoticed and we appreciate all the efforts from everyone! I heard many comments that this rally is the best and has a lot more activities than any others that folks have attended. This is all because of folks like yourself who step up to the plate! Jim J, our personal welcoming committee, and for keeping our Rally Lists straight (so I could deliver these messages to you), Franks Tips and Tricks and Talking Stick intro, the evening fires, whether they are Tim's wood (for our Wiener Roast) or Les n Carole's propane, picking up and removing trash from our tables area, the Pet Parade, all the help with the Ice Cream Potluck, Barbara's Rock collection, 4-sale items, Open Houses, Potlucks n Happy Hours. I'm sure I've missed mentioning some events but not the fun that we all had. All of these are made possible by YOU! And WE all graciously thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Mark you calendars NOW! Next year's Rally will be October 20-24th, 2016.

We were blessed this year with a lot of new folks. For those folks that couldn't make it this year, we hope you'll join us in 2016.

Have the best rest of this year and may your travels all be fun and safe!

Paula​ ​
