Blyth Fairground

Flamingo Fling – Spring Rally in Blyth, ON

May 16 – 21, 2024

Your host team still has a few details to work out, but here’s what we know already.  The Blyth Campground is ideal for our needs and we have it booked for a total of 5 nights.  Camping fees are by the night.  When you register, you can indicate what nights you plan to stay and be charged accordingly.  The grounds are enormous and relatively level.  There is an abundance of electrical and water hook-ups.  Nobody goes without and you’ll have at least a 15-amp service.  Showers and toilets are located close to where we’ll be camping and there’s a dump station on site.

*Power and Water:*

Blyth Campground is set up like many fairgrounds with power and water services for multiple campsites centralized at a power pole. A trailer can be as much as 20 metres from the nearest power pole. Everyone needs to bring extra water hose and plan to daisy-chain (using Y-connector) off the neighbouring trailer. If you don't have sufficient 30-amp extensions to span the distance, have a 30/15-amp adaptor and be ready to run 15-amp extension cords. If you are unable to adapt to the distance, please let John Walton know - 519-842-4858 or We can be flexible about parking if we know ahead of time that someone can't adapt to the distance. 

While we have the campground reserved from Thursday to Tuesday, the actual rally starts on Friday and ends on Monday.  To be fair to everyone, the camping fees will be kept separate from the rally fee. The rally fee will cover the costs of:

  • Breakfast on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of fruit and juices, cereals, and assorted baked goods and spreads, as well as the all-essential coffee and tea
  • Refreshments Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening
  • Common costs such as table coverings, dish detergent, printing and other miscellaneous items
  • Saturday evening’s entertainment.  We’ve hired a DJ so bring your dancing shoes!

We’ve also arranged for a catered dinner by Pineridge BBQ out of Hensall on Saturday evening. That cost is separate and you can select it as an option on the registration form.  On Saturday afternoon prior to dinner, we plan to have “Hassle Tassel” – that’s like a happy hour where you’ll be invited to a small group “mix and mingle” hosted by one of our members at their camp site.  You’ll bring your chair, a snack to share and your beverage of choice.  Keep your fingers crossed that Ma Nature cooperates!


A pdf of the program is available here so you have a good idea of how we’ll spend the weekend. We’ll be playing bingo on Sunday night. Bingo cards and markers (tabs) will be supplied. You can bring your own dauber if you prefer. If you want to play some other game, bring it with you.

There will be a general meeting on Sunday morning to transact any outstanding club business, so be sure to attend.

If you want to play golf on Saturday morning, please sign up with Kim Ellison – 705-308-4035 or - if you haven’t already done so.
