2017 Escape Trailer Rally - SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Hello Everyone,

I know many of you have already begun your adventure making your way to Osoyoos, BC for the 2017 Escape Trailer Rally.

Many of you are asking for a copy of the Schedule of Events prior to your arrival at the Rally - We have tried posting it here on the forum however, the pdf file is now too large and cannot be posted.

Please find below a short version. You will receive a printed copy when you check in for the rally at site C60 upon arrival at the rally.


2017 Escape Trailer Rally


Welcome to the 8th Annual, 2017 Escape Trailer Rally. This is our seventh year at the Nk’Mip Campground in Osoyoos. There are currently 148 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 C60this year. Please visit our site upon arrival to receive your registration package.
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 Desert 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. The Dubh Glas Distillery | Whisky, Gin and Spirits – They conduct tours Friday to Sunday 11am – 6pm. It is interesting to hear his spiel about the process and his choice of equipment. Sampling is of course the highlight.
Escape ‘BINGO’ – Last year our BINGO game was so much fun we decided to do it again.…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 on Saturday. 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. If you wish to ‘display or show’ your trailer please hang the RED BALLOONfound in your Welcome Bag on your trailer saying you are ‘Open’ for trailer tours.
Sites C1 – C76 10am – 12pm
Sites C77 – 142 1pm – 3pm

Camping Treasures Collection - This year Ian and Joan G. are very excited to unveil some of their unique Fiberglass Trailer items which includes. Key Chains, Earrings, Necklaces and Wineglass Charms. Please remember to stop by their site and take a peek at all of the wares they have for sale.

A Rally of this size does take some Organization, some Participation, and A LOT of Communication. Although we do our best not everything will be perfect. All we want is for you to have a good time and meet new friends and plan your next Escape.

Question regarding Check-In and Wine Tours times...We are scheduled for the first wine tour on Thursday morning and see we need to be at the pick up site 9:50 for a 10AM departure...registration doesn't open until 10am on Thursday...how should we manage the payment for the Wine Tour since that was supposed to be taken care of at registration. Is there a registration time on Wed or early registration Thursday for those of us going on the tour bus? Thanks!
