Just registered double occupancy at Rising Star Casino Resort for 3-nites, for 2018 Rising Sun Rally - after much motel/hotel searching within 20 miles. By booking via "Hotwire" ( I saved a few bucks with a rate of $88 per night, plus $20 per nite taxes - plus another $5 per nite for cancellation insurance...Total $113 per nite, no free breakfast, but restaurants available. Ride Safely, or as Roger Hull always said, "Ride Sagely".

I've never been to the Rally and may not be able to make all days.
I'm curious when the agenda comes out?

So Sorry to hear you had such a hassle with making reservations at Rising Star Casino. After reading your message I called the Casino to verify our rates and they had us under the wrong rates. That has now been corrected. Thursday night is $69, Friday & Saturday nights are $99 for an average of $89 per night plus taxes. Also they have little perks with our reservations.

Just for anyone else who have already made reservations with Rising Star Casino, your rates have been adjusted to the lower group rate.

Thanks for bring this to my attention.

made my reservations now I am looking for anybody that is going north from Florida or any state in between...will make route plans as the group forms ... it is just under 1000 miles for me if I go up RT.75
but I do not need to make a interstate run ....thinking on a 2 or 3 day ride on secondary roads...but that will be up to the group if anybody wants to join me to make a group ...lets start planing ...

well it looks like we are going to make it after all, just made my reservations at the campground for site # 46
now to send in my rally registration and $$

USCA # 8913

early registration for USCA national rally 2018 ends May 1st.

I’m not sure we’ll be able to attend from beginning to end (Thursday thru Saturday night). Does anyone have an agenda/schedule of events?

Yes, There is a tentative Schedule on my facebook page...Belinda Schraeder. If you do not have facebook, email me and I will send you a schedule.

I do have Facebook but I’m not very good at finding things. I’ve sent you an email. Thanks.

Just an update...We have added 3 fun guided group tours, to the Rally. All of the tours will leave from the pavilion and transportation on the tours is provided. All will be offered free to those attending the rally. The first is a Ghost-Historic Tour of some the history of Rising Sun which may include topics of legends, civil war, or the underground railroad. It is offered Thursday evening, so get to the rally early. The other 2 will be offered at 10am on Friday & Saturday and will be a tour of the Red Wolf Sanctuary where you will get to hear about the efforts to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals from bears to eagles.

These are in addition to the regular rally events.

As of 4-24-18 The Courtyard (812-438-4035) still had rooms available, the Lodge at Rising Star Casino (812-438-1234) has availability in our block of rooms, and Little Farm has plenty of camping spaces open (812-438-4500).

Hope to see you there.
