I'm neither the Rally Master, nor a Club officer, nor on the Board, but I thought it would be useful to start a thread to summarize/consolidate information found elsewhere on the website.

The Rally Master is Mikel Murray.

Rally Dates are June 14-16, 2018 [Father's Day is June 17]

Rally will be held at the Little Farm on the River RV Park near Rising Sun, IN. Site is on the Ohio River about 30 miles down-river from Cincinnati OH.

1343 E. Bellview Lane, Rising Sun, IN 47140 812-438-4500 Little Farm has a few cabins and RV Camping Trailers for rent.

For non-campers, there are at least a few choices in Rising Sun: Anderson's Riviera Inn has 5 rooms; The Empire House has 5 rooms and a 2-bedroom Suite; Tuggles Folly has a 2 rooms with bath and 2 rooms with shared bath; and the Rising Star Casino has 294 rooms. There are 2 sets of rooms at the Casino: One set in the Casino itself, and another set in "The Lodge" across the parking lot from the Casino.

I don't know if any of the above are taking reservations yet.

I'm sure there will be more information available soon

Ha! That's awesome. I'll have to show that to my wife.

Thanks for all the work you have put into this.
Tex. Rep.

hello , Rich here ..the new Florida rep.(what have I gotten myself into)...I will be planning a ride to the 2018 rally .. my goal is to get at least 10 fellow Floridians to ride with me (pay attention Florida)..
I am calling it more to come

Rich: At this point I am planning on going to the rally.


Although there is no information in this thread, yet, I've heard a rumor that the club has arranged for a block of rooms at a reduced rate to be held for us at the casino lodge. Maybe the Rally Master or one of the Club officers can confirm this and post the necessary information - like room rate, how to get the special room rate, the phone number to call, how long the rooms will be held, etc.

Also, whoever is in charge of the website needs to fix the website header link to the national rally - if you click on it now it takes you to the 2017 Rally
