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.
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!
For Sunday dinner, we’ll have some sort of pot luck dinner – more on that in April. Then, afterwards, we’ll play some games and award some prizes!
Rumour has it that there may be a golf game in the works and perhaps a hiking / biking excursion along the G2G Rail Trail somewhere over the weekend. There’ll also be a general membership meeting and a flea market. If you have something you want to move along to another owner, bring it along and put a price tag on it.
