2024, Oct 3-6 Bay Area Rally (B.A.R.)

(Cross posted on Fiberglass Forum)

Greetings!

Just a quick reminder that our annual B.A.R. will be a week later this year, 3-6 Oct. I'm in contact with the County Parks Department who will let me know the exact day to make your reservations (they emphatically stressed six months to the day ... ). Last year we had a great turnout and we hope this year proves to be just as popular. Who knows, maybe we can fill up the entire campground with fiberglass trailers!

Anyway, we'll be back with more updates soon.

Jan and Birdie

Great! Looking forward to it, we had lots of fun last year.

I would guess six months out is coming up quickly!

We are now in the "window" to make reservations for the 2024 Bay Area Rally at Mt. Madonna County Park. There are still some RV sites available at the Valley View 1 area (electric and water) and just about all of the no-hookup sites at the Valley View 2&3 and the Tan Oak campgrounds. There is potable water and a dump station within the park and all sites may be occupied by a trailer as long as it fits (see Campsite Photos below). After touring some of the "non-electric" sites last year, we discovered that a number of sites get direct sun during the day which is great for solar. To see photos of the campsites, go to https://www.campsitephotos.com/campg...a-county-park/ (take a look at the photo of Campsite 101 to see the size of trailers that utilize the Tan Oak area).

Like last year, because of the limitations on the number of people allowed in any one campsite at any time, we have reserved the covered Azalea Knoll picnic area for some of our activities on Friday and Saturday.

If you are planning on attending, please PM me or Birdie (Bea) with your name, arrival/departure dates, site number and email. Hope you are able to join us!

Well... Those sites went fast!

We'll be on the "dark side" again this year. It's a good thing there are electrical hookups because no sun gets into that loop to feed the solar panels!

Jill, so great you can join us this year. So glad I remembered our PM from last year. Looking forward to meet you, too!

Many thanks to those who have replied here and those who have PM'd us. We can't wait to see you all again and hear about all your travels and see your new mods and to just hang out and play games together. I believe there are still some hook up sites left and plenty of non-hook up sites in loop 2 & 3. If you book a site, please let us know. Thanks so much!

Until then, safe travels,

Birdie (Bea) & Jan

Yes, that area of the park is well shaded. If we have a warm Fall, however, you'll be happy for the shade.

I managed to get site 101, the first one in the loop on the dark side. Last year we were in 102, so it’s kinda like home. Oct 3-6th.

Looking forward to it!

Just an FYI ... as of right now, there are five RV sites left at Mt. Madonna (Valley View 1) but there are plenty of non-electric sites in Tan Oak, Valley View 2 and 3. Also, if you've made reservations and haven't let us know your dates and site, please drop us a quick note. Thanks
Jan & Birdie
