It’s been a year now since we had our last rally at Casey’s RV Park in Westfir, Oregon alongside the Willamette River! Given that it was necessary to cancel the Mega rally that was originally scheduled for June and some time has passed, it is time to schedule another Oregon rally. While I am sending this notice to many people, it is understandable if one is hesitant to travel a long distance. If you are comfortable doing so, please come.

I have 10 spaces reserved and we are looking forward to another great weekend of relaxation, discussions and looking at other coaches. This park is located about 35 miles east of Eugene, OR just off of hwy 58 so it is easy to get to from all directions. I know that we will have one or more first time attendee’s.

In accordance with CDC guidelines, we will be able to socially distance and still converse and socialize as the park has large amounts of grassy area where we will be parked.

It is a relaxing location as we are along the river and the spaces are nice and roomy and separated by grassy areas. Here are a couple of pictures of the area of the campground where we will be holding the rally.

*** the pictures didn't copy and paste***

The first picture is the campground’s map of the area of the campground where we will be holding the rally. The reserved spaces are 59-68. Note that space 61 has already been reserved by me so pick another number and call the campground at 541-782-1906 and tell them that you are with the FMC Owners Club and the space number that you want to reserve. It is first come, first gets the spot! If you are coming in an SOB (Some Other Brand) please reserve a spot in the 65-68 range. A 10% discount will apply if we have 10 or more attendee’s or if you are a Good Sam member. There is a small non-refundable $15 reservation fee that will hold your spot until you arrive. So call now before your desired spot is taken by someone else. Please text or email me as to which space you reserved as soon as you complete your reservation with the campground. I am trying to be organized! My contact information is Mbl: 916-425-7996 or email Stephen@heinrichs.com .

The second picture is a Google Earth image of the same location so you can see what it is like in real life! Note the spacing and the proximity of the river. Given the angle of the spaces they are easy to back into and they are all full hookup sites. Here is a link to Casey’s Riverside RV Park’s website to see the rates, rules and other features of the campground: http://www.caseysrvpark.com/ . Do not attempt to reserve your spot on the website as you will not be able to be with the rest of the group – call them!

We don’t have any outside activities scheduled at this point. Historically, a number of us that are there in time for Friday dinner have gone to the nearby town of Oakridge and had a nice Mexican dinner. Due to the virus situation, that is not planned at this time.

So it is a two step process:
Step 1. Call 541-782-1906 and tell them that you are with the FMC Owners Club and want to reserve space # ___ for the rally of October 2-3, 2020. That’s arrive on Friday and leave on Sunday.
Step 2. Text or email Stephen at either 916-425-7996 or Stephen@heinrichs.com and tell him which space you have reserved. Feel free to extend your stay earlier or later than the formal rally dates if you so desire.

The only remaining step is get on the road and arrive at the rally! You can let me know when you do that as well so that we can estimate your arrival time and be ready to greet you and assist with parking if needed. I will have wood for a fire up at the fire ring. If you have a propane camp fire setup, bring it as well for use in the coach area.

Hi all again!

This rally update has been emailed to all who have registered for the rally. One party has a possible outside obligation change dates so they may not make it depending on circumstances. Other than that, one person needed to cancel so we will still have a good, large group of coaches and owners at this rally. Currently, we are expecting either 17 or 18 coaches!

I have had a couple of inquiries about the status of the rally due to the fires and smoke here in Oregon. As you all know 10 days ago we experienced some strong east to west hot, dry down slope winds that caused several large, intense fires that destroyed or damaged many homes and covered large areas. Fortunately the strong winds diminished after a couple of days. We have now returned to west to east light breezes/winds which have cleared most of the smoke out of the central portion of Oregon. The rally site is 30 miles south and north of the closest fires which are now burning slowly and getting contained. Air quality at the rally site is now close to normal and a couple more storm fronts bringing rain and clean air in from the ocean are expected prior to the rally.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you and touring your coaches. There will be a lot of expertise of different types represented by various owners so bring your questions,
