Rally Questions 2017

Does the rally 2017 fee include my campsite or do I have to reserve a site with the campground? Or do we all camp in an area designated for our rally and that's part of the fee? What will the dinner on Saturday night be? Thanks. Mike Magri

Camping fee is payed to the campground. No free camping. ( I changed your post a little to 2017, this post will be here forever and going forward it might confuse people , I have no idea what the dinner is, someone else will help you their.

Dave, thanks for the info.

The Saturday night meal is catered, expecting to feed 150 attendees. Have not heard the menu.

Does the registration include a t-shirt? If not will there be any for sale at the Rally?

PB, Clothing items from the USCA Store will be on display for ordering at the rally. If you order from the USCA store now, ask them to ship it to the rally site with the sample merchandise, then you can pick it up there.
