I just wanted to thank you all for coming to Bandon just so we could tour your Escapes and to ask you endless questions.

We really appreciate your time and your patience answering our questions.

Grant

I'm HOME! Actually got home about 3pm yesterday. Good trip north. Ten Forward tows wonderfully well. SWOON! I love, love, love this trailer

95 registered all molded towables, 105 showed up! Trailer tours were a hit. I had a bunch of visitors. Fortunately for me, Reace and Tammy were there with their 5.0TA, I got a picture of them just as they were getting ready to leave on Sunday. I don't know how they do it though. I yacked for 2-1/2 hours and was exhausted. A good kinda tired.

There can't be anyone that had any more fun than me at the Oregon Gathering. It was terrific meeting new folks and reconnecting with old friends once again. I thank you ALL for helping me make more glorious memories. Packed in a ton of fun in a week from food, walking, visiting and on and on.

There's changes coming to the Oregon Gathering starting in 2015. THAT is a good thing. One thing that will never change is the connection and fun folks have at Bullard's. For those that have never attended an OG, next year will be just as much fun. Not Organized is a wonderful thing!


My many thanks to the Hostess with the Mostess Chris Tom-Albertson. This 12th Oregon Gathering was hughly successful due to her hardwork and organizational skills. It wouldn't have happened without her. And THAT's a FACT.

Safe travels, always.

Well, Donna, my major question was how you liked the trailer, and I guess you answered that! :-)

Thanks for sharing all the pictures Jon. What a great way to relive some great times. I always seem to carry my camera, but am so busy looking I forget to take any pictures! You've really come through once again.

Darn, I was hoping to learn a few new dance steps when I can make it down. Oh well, beer is good too.

Donna, you mentioned changes for the 2015 gathering, can you elaborate?

Mike, Chris and I couldn't get anyone to step up and take over as Wagonmaster. Chris did an absolute superb job of organizing this event. She is a project manager extraordinaire! She has this down to a checklist... but still. So with discussions with others, including Nancy Wolf the original Oregon Gathering founder it was decided to make it a Not Organized Oregon Gathering (NOOG).

This is the information Gene Layton posted on the CasitaForum for next year:

The dates for the 2015 Oregon Gathering held at Bullard's Beach State Park in Bandon, Oregon will be July 16th thru 19th

The gathering will have a major change for 2015 as we will be getting back to the basics and a lot will be done online, such as online rosters, agendas, signs, name tags, etc.

There will be no permits purchased from the Oregon State Parks as in previous years so no large potluck in the grassy area (potlucks can still be done in the individual sites)

Since there will be no need for permits etc, no need for money donations

There will be no "giveaways" so no item donations are needed

There will be no registration "booth" as this will all be done online so not necessary

Any participant can do a "workshop" or "event" of their choosing in their own site which will be published on an online agenda

The registration will still be done here online and the map will be kept up to date of "who is coming"

Stay tuned - more to come later.

Tons of people are still planning to attend! Several folks were walking around looking for 3-5 sites that were "connected" and big enough to hold the potluck, etc.

I'm expecting this will be very, very succesful.
