The Rally Will Go On!
Things will be a little different at the rally this year because on August 26th, a fire damaged two facilities at the Sipapu Lodge. Fortunately, the biggest part of the lodge building is OK including the store, café and lounge upstairs, gas pumps, etc. However, there was damage to the outdoor patio grill and the Day Room (the big room with the fireplace).
The always resourceful lodge staff is working with us to accommodate our rally, though. Some presentations and the Saturday night program and music will be held either in the patio area next to the river if weather allows (it usually does) and/or in a large tent that will be erected across the river from the patio. Coffee and refreshments will be available in the tent.
Registration will be in the breeze way between the Day Room and the store entrance.
Otherwise, all cabins, rooms, camping, and the parking area are fine. With the store, café, and lounge operational, along with the big tent, the rally should be still one of the best little rallies in the West, so don’t miss out! It’s a rally, not a luxury resort experience! ;)
See you on September 5th-7th!
