    I will have more information for this rally as it is available to me, however I wanted to get it up here as a placeholder. I think we all know what Make-A-Wish represents, however I will have a write-up describing the great events, activities, and fun times for kids and adults alike, at this Rally.

    Personally, we'll never miss a MAW Rally if we can avoid it--it's camping for one of the best causes, IMO--helping make wishes come true for Terminally Ill children.

    Stand by for more details! [CP]

    We haven't missed MAW in thirteen years. I don't think we'll miss this one...

    Have wanted to get to a MAW rally for a few years. Something else always came up, just graduating college, and hope to have a fresh new job by September, but I hope to make plans to be at his one!

    You do now:
    http://www.ctfcrv.org/MAW_2012.pdf

    I don't understand the fees. How do I figure how much to pay?

    There's a line that says "fee minimum $85" and another to check off yes/no "$25 enclosed". It asks for the number of kids and adults, but doesn't say how much each costs.

    For the past thirteen years, the suggested min fee (now $85) included, a spot to park your camper for the weekend and Dinner for 2 Sat night (has been bar-b-q chicken) and breakfast for 2 sun morning. Any additional people for the weekend are $10 for dinner and $6 each for breakfast.
    The $25 fee is if you want to arrive a day earlier on Thurs.
    Hope that helps. If you are going to be camping with the PopupPortal group, make sure you indicate it on the form and let us know here.thanks.

    Hello all,

    Unfortunately, I am not able to get onto PUP over the past months. :(. Too much life, not enough camping.

    I wanted to touch base and get a headcount for who has registered, will be registering, as well as those who perhaps cannot make it.

    Please update ASAP, so we can give them an idea of how many we have?

    Thanks!

    Due to the lack of interest, I am (regretfully) bowing out as Wagonmaster for this Rally. Perhaps next year PUP can have more of a presence at the MAW Jamboree.
