2017 Fall meet is in LODI

Post by Kurt Lesser » Sat Jul 08, 2017 6:41 pm

There seems to be some confusion amongst the membership about where our fall meet will be this September. We will again be holding this meet at the Tower Park location in Lodi. This is where the meets have been held for the past 13 years but unfortunately this may be out last time at this location. If and when that changes we will announce it here, on the MVCC Facebook page, and in the MVCC Newsletter.

And some early birds arrive earlier to watch the buildup. The last Sunday is a pull out day, not a good show day.

I haven't heard if we will have the traditional Early Bird Potluck dinner on Monday. I don't think we have arranged for the Campground 4 Pavilion on Monday evening because our group is centered in Campgrounds 2, 3 by the levee. Stay tuned for a location IF this happens.

Regarding returning in the Fall 2018, my guess is we probably will unless the owners enact unacceptable day visitor and parking fees like we thought we were faced with this September but they waived them. As has been discussed in the Camp Petaluma threads, finding venues for these meets is all about juggling many factors, and two important ones are fees for non-campers. This event here will be much like the ones in the past, but CG 2 and 3 have less dust and the levee visitor/overflow parking is very close, as is the store, restaurant, bar, marina. One huge improvement is we will probably have very few "civilians" in our midst because Jo-Ann stepped up to be our Wagonmaster like she is for the April meet, organizing who gets what site. We could never book all of CG 4 in September and with KOA placing the campers, they always had a lot of pressure to put families and others who wanted to use the pools in CG 4 amongst our swap meet. This year should be a much nicer swap meet environment assuming people bring their trade goods. No charge for that except your campsite rental!!!
