2015 Escape Trailer Rally - Itinerary

Hello Everyone,

We recently sent out the itinerary for the 2015 Escape Trailer Rally.

Just in case you did not receive a copy we have posted one below.
2015 Escape Trailer Rally

Welcome to the 6th Annual, 2015 Escape Trailer Rally. This is our fifth year at the Nk’Mip Campground in Osoyoos. There are currently 120 trailers registered for the rally. Some of these registrants are new to the Escape family, while others currently have their second or third or fifth Escape trailer and many have been a member of our Escape
family for several years now. Reace and I will be in site C60 this year. Please visit our site upon arrival for registration.

The Nk’Mip campground is located at the bottom of the hill with the cultural center above which offers plenty of information on local history, First Nation Heritage, and local wildlife. We hope you enjoy the scenery as much as we do.

We do not plan many activities during the rally as Osoyoos is a beautiful area for exploring. The
Tourist Information Center is the perfect place to begin as it is a great source of information on surrounding activities, local events and points of interest. As Osoyoos is located in the Wine Capital of BC you can count on some warm weather perfect for golfing, fishing, sailing etc. Be sure to stop by the Old Home Hardware Store which is located downtown and offers three floors to explore – Make sure you make it down into the basement! The Adega on 45th Estate Winery – Welcomes all Escape Rally Attendees. Just mention you are with the Escape Trailer Rally and they will be more than happy to provide you with a 10% discount. Their patio is also open and available for anyone who would like to take advantage of the view. Picnic lunches are welcome.

Escape ‘BINGO’ – For some extra fun this year…Please look in your registration package for an Escape Bingo Card. Take some time to meet your fellow Escapees and obtain the answers to the questions found on your card. Completed Bingo Cards will be entered in an additional draw for more prizes.

Trailer Tour - This year we will be coordination a semi organized trailer tour. There are many people attending the rally this year who have trailers on order and they would enjoy the opportunity to look at some of the Escapes. Throughout the rally if you wish to ‘display or show’ your trailer please hang the GREEN BALLOON found in your Welcome Bag on your trailer saying you are ‘Open’ for trailer tours.
Below is a schedule for the rally; we hope you enjoy yourself as much as possible! Please note all activities this
year will be located in the OLD CLUBHOUSE. (Please see the map on page 2)

9am – 1pm Swapping of the ‘Stuff’ – (Hosted by Leon & Lindy W.) If you have Stuff to give away, feel free to drop it at our campsite on the table. Please label the ‘Stuff’ with your name, site number and, if there is some special knowledge associated with your ‘Stuff’, please post it on a card or label of some sort. For example: One item I am going to give away is a set of pads for BAL stabilizers, however, they only work on pre – 2012 stabilizers. I am going to note that on a little card so that other folks aren't frustrated trying to fit them onto their new 2015 trailer. All your Stuff is to be given away rather than sold -- I can't be trusted with any funds, American, Canadian or otherwise. Stuff you take does not come with any warranty, implied or otherwise.

We will be among those with an on-order Escape who will be visiting the rally on Saturday to pick up some ideas and chat with folks about their experiences.. Thanks for the Green Balloon idea. It's a great way to know that we are welcome to tour your Escape. So far, it looks as though the weather will be great!
Laura and Phil

We will be attending the rally with out 2 week old Escape 19. Last year we attended the rally with our SOB (some other brand) and got many questions answered as we contemplated our build list. Would be happy to share our experience and give you a tour!

I had a really bad day yesterday. On my way to Chilliwack to pick up my trailer my water pump failed. I limped into a Squamish and phoned Chrystal at Escape to say I couldn't make it, then I phoned Nk'Kip to tell them I would have to cancel my reservation (this was 10 a.m. on Friday). When I finally got home I got an e-mail saying that Nk'Mip had just charged my MasterCard $60. I looked up my statement and found that they had already charged my card $60 n May 5th. I keep leaving phone messages on their machine and have yet to speak to anyone in person. They sure know how to make a bad day worse. Any suggestions on what I can do?

Why don't you call ETI on Monday and leave a message for Tammy.
With all the business ETI brings to the campground, I would think a phone call from her might help you get a refund.

I would not expect to get a deposit refunded when the terms are that you don't get it back if you cancel on short notice.
Last year, I cancelled and then found I could come after all. They credited me the $60 I had paid toward my camp fee even though I had cancelled.
I don't think they or ETI is responsible for your water pump.

No, but because his cancelation is due to a mechanical breakdown and not a change of mind, I would think they will consider it. It doesn't hurt to ask.

ETI has to pay for the venue for the pot luck etc. for the gathering. Nk'Mip gives Escape participants a reduced rate for the event.
I don't see why they should be expected to refund the deposit for a no-show, no matter what the reason.

If it is a busy weekend, seems they would fill the spot. Refunds are often based on getting someone else in the spot.
