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.
Donna, thank you for the update, we will be in attendance in our new 5.0 TA. According to Tammy, reservations will begin in November?

Mike this is the Oregon Gathering... not the Escape Rally. For the Oregon State Park system, you can make reservations exactly nine months in advance of the date of your ARRIVAL. I typically make my reservations in October. Previous years, Bullard's Beach State Park was full by Christmas for the gathering weekend. Fortunately, you can make your reservations and if you can't make it you can cancel 4 days before you're due to arrive and get all you money back except the $8 fee.

I still don't know if I'll be there or not. I AM going to the Escape Rally... need to start checking items off the bucket list. Dang work anyway... interferes in my fun!

No kidding!!! Going to the Escape Rally, where most folks are retired, and having a relaxed schedule, gets me thinking about my own retirement, or at least redefining how I work. I would so love to have more time to travel. I have been saying for over 5 years that I am retiring in 5 years. Methinks it is time to knock that down to only a couple years now.
