    Hello Everyone,

    The RV Show will be Saturday 16 Feb 13. http://www.springfieldrvcampingshow.com/
    $2.00 discount coupons are available on the above RV Show website.

    The final count has been turned in and our reservation is for 6:30 16 February.
    We will meet up around 2 pm to gauge where everyone is at with the show. We met at the NAFCA booth last year and it seems as good a place as any to meet again this year. For any newcomers, the NAFCA booth is usually at the back of the Mallory Building. This is also where you turn in your raffle ticket.

    There are several Hotel options. The ones that we prefer are either the Marriot or the Red Roof Inn as you don't have to drive after dinner, both are in walking distance.

    Hi Ben. Michele and I are planning on attending. When should we book the hotel? Are you staying at the Mariot?

    All,

    I apologize for the lack of activity on this...Chrissy and I have been informed that we are going to need to move from where we live now sometime this year. My landlord sold the house and the new owner is going to be tearing it down and building something new there. We have been talking about a long distance move for a while now, and this may be the push we were waiting for. We are applying for employment and seeing where it goes from there.

    Now- We are booked at the Marriot for Fri and Sat night. Dinner will be at On the Border, I am thinking 6:00 will work, seems to work well in the past. As we get closer, I will need a final count so that we can make a reservation for dinner. I will be back on here more often, as things are hopfully settling out for now, we will let you know, but we will be at the camping show come He11 or highwater....
