Here is the skinny...


When - June, 28th 2013 to July 5th, 2013

Where -

KOA Campground
5896 West 200 north
Greenfield, Indiana
www.indykoa.com

317-894-1397

Detailed Campground information.

The campground is offering us a 25% discount on all reservations if you make your reservation before April 1St 2013 and a 10% discount if made on or after April 1st 2013. if you show up with no reservation then you will NOT receive a discount. So the key here is to make reservations prior to April 1st.

The campground has set up a special link for us to make online reservations. This is because they are closed for the season so getting in touch with them via the phone is a little more touch and go in the off season. Yes you can still call your reservations in but you might have to wait for them to call you back. So by using the link you can make them instantly.

For example a 30ft 5th wheel back in site on the main portion of the campground would run 378.82 for the entire time that would be arriving on Friday June 28th and leaving Sunday July 7th. A total of 9 nights.

They also have cabins avail that go from one room (no bath or running water) to full blown cabins that have their own bathroom. All of these reservations can be made on line. I suggest that if you want a cabin you make your reservation early.

UPDATE

It has come to my attention that the online reservation system will NOT accept date ranges outside of the rally dates (June 28th - July 7th) so if you are arriving earlier or staying later than those dates then you will need to contact the campground directly via phone to make those reservations. You can if you wish make the reservations online but remove the "HOT DEAL" then call the campground to get that straightened out. But my choice would be to just call them directly if you plan on coming early or staying late.




Copied from my email :
*****************************************************************************
Sites

Due to the business of the 4th of July weekend, sites can only be held until April 1, 2013. After that time, sites will be opened up to other campers and other groups. We cannot guarantee the type of site or the placement of anybody choosing to make a reservation after that date. We will accomodate those making late reservations, but the deadline needs to be communicated to your group.

*****************************************************************************

Deposit Requirements/ Cancellation Policy

The deposit is equal to the cost of the first night. Any cancellation would result in a $10 fee provided we are given a 48 hour notice. Cancellations within 48 hours forfeit the deposit. Each person in the group is responsible for making their own reservation.

*****************************************************************************

Cost

Anyone making a reservation by April 1, 2013 will receive a discount 25%. Anyone making a reservation after April 1 will receive a discount of 10%. Those arriving without reservations will not receive any discount. Due to the fact that IDI has everything from tents to 5th wheels to motorhomes, it is easier to simply offer a flat percentage off instead of trying to apply a flat rate to everybody. It is up to each person to let KOA know they are part of the IDI group.


These rates are contingent upon a minimum of 20 rigs registering and include 2 adults and 2 kids on each site. Additional adults are $5/ person and extra kids are $3.50. If somebody fails to make a reservation, there is no guarantee of the type of site they will be on and no guarantee they will be with the group.


******************************************************************************

So far we have these activities on the white board (subject to change depending upon group wants)

TRAIN RIDE - Cruise to Connersville, indiana and board a train bound for Metamora. Metamora is a little historic town that has shops, working Grist Mill, horse drawn canal boat ride. Currently in talks with them on special pricing for the group.

GO KARTS - go karting park where we can race karts, they also have mini golf, haunted house and laser tag for those that want to shoot each other.

Children's Day - Indianapolis Children's Museum - Kids of all ages will enjoy this.

INDY 500 Track Day - no we can't drive our trucks on the track but we will / can ride a bus around the track. The museum is located at the Indianapolis 500 where Indy cars and NASCAR race.

Canoe Trip - where we can enjoy some of Indiana's scenery from the water.


This list will grow as time follows so check back and don't hesitate to tell me of ideas you have.

We will be having a pitch in for the community meal as we have had in the past. It seems that we won't have enough in head count to keep the cost down to what I feel is an acceptable level. Yes Rick was giving us a discount but there is a min cost and with the numbers that I'm showing at present it would just be too much for most I feel. So after much thought and pondering we will just continue with the Brotherhood Pitch in.


*************************************************************************************

2 hours to explore the historical town.
We will be taking a boat ride on a horse drawn canal boat where the captain will explain the history of the canal system and it's importance to the area in the days before rail service and semi truck service. We will also be visiting the grist mill. The town is filled with historical buildings and shops (it's a tourist town).
We board the train at around 3:30pm for the train ride back to Connersville, Indiana.
Should arrive back in Connersville at 4:40pm then we will convoy back to the Campground.

It is recommended that we either pack a lunch to eat on the train or I have scored a deal with a local eatery in Connersville for us to pick up a to go lunch. One thing is there is NO GLASS ALLOWED on the train - this is because the floor of the train is concrete and glass shatters..

Pricing....

Train ride - $18 for adults - $12 for 2-12 year olds. We have scored a 10% discount on our ticket prices but YOU NEED TO CALL and make your own reservations to recieve this discount!!!! We need to make a 10% over the phone payment to receive the discount. So for example you will call and make a payment over the phone for $1.80 for one adult ticket and $1.20 for a child ticket.

Contact information:

Becky Hunter 765-825-2054
Becky is our contact just tell her you are with the OILBURNERS Diesel Group and she will take it from there.

The balance of the payment is due upon arrival at the depot before we depart. So we will arrive at the depot early so that we can get everyone processed through.

Canal Boat ride information:

Pricing $5 for adults 13 and older / $4 for seniors (60+) / $2.50 for 12 and under.

If you choose to just buy a lunch and eat it on the train then Lee's Famous Chicken is for you.

Show off your Ride day! Get your trucks ready to show off all your hard work. Shine those puppies up. Judging will be impartial as we will be bringing in judges from outside the group. There will be a score sheet that will be used to judge the trucks from stem to stern.

Cost for Truck Show $20 - the proceeds from this will be donated to charity so by entering your truck in the show you are helping others.

In the afternoon we will have our community meal and hand out the plaques to those that have won in the truck show. We will also celebrate the birth of this great nation and birthdays of those who's birthdays fall within the rally time period.

We will also have a Chinese Gift Giving event following the meal. So bring a wrapped gift with a value of no more than $25 to participate. This has been a hit at other rallies in the past.

Travis, I can't wait to get to enjoy another IDI rally. We'll likely get there on the thurday (27th) evening or Friday am (28th). Heck that's a short trip compaired to the 2012 Rally. We'll stay the week and likely leave on Saturday July the 6th.

Buddy, I don't care if we just sit at the campground all week and enjoy the company and the trucks...... it'll be a great time with good friends (new and old).


THANKS FOR HOSTING TRAVIS!!!!:cheers:
