Are you are getting the Discovery ready to hit the road. The weather has finally turned around, so
I want to remind you to:

ADD our 20th Anniversary National Homecoming Rally to your trip planning calendar.

September 10 – 15, 2018 (depart 9/16)
Early Days 9/7, 9/8 and 9/9
Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds
East Monroe St., 17746-D County Road 34
Goshen, Indiana 46526

The rally planning is in full swing.  Let me tell you a little more about the “Down the Road Tour”.  It’s an all-day tour, but you will be back at the fairgrounds around 4:00 PM.  You will be making six (6) stops at various Amish businesses and you will receive gifts from five of them for your brown bag.   Here’s a list of those stops; Ben’s Pretzels, Heritage Ridge Cheese Haus, Lambright County Chimes, Rise’n Roll Bakery, Teaberry Wood Products and Sonshine Baskets.  Remember these are retail shops with so many great items for you to purchase.  You will also be stopping for a lunch at an Amish home for a Thrasher meal.  Our bus only holds 56 people, so the earlier you get your registration in, the better the chance your seat will be reserved.

Happy Days – A New Musical is on Wednesday September 12, 2018 at 7:30 PM.  We will car pool to this event, since it’s only 18 miles away.  We have reserved seating and will be seated together for this new musical.  If you liked Grease you will love Happy Days.  A powerhouse, rock and roll trip down memory lane.  Goodbye gray skies, hello blue!  Happy days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable “king of cool” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli.  One of America’s best love families, the Cunninghams - - yes, Howard, Marion and Joanie are here too.  Return to the days of 1959 Milwaukee complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin’ fun. If you don’t want to miss all
this fun, make sure that you include your tickets to your registration form.

I’m EXCITED!!!!  We already have great vendors and seminars lined up.

Having your COACH WEIGHT!  RV Safety and Education will be on board to weigh your coach by wheel position.  I have two (2) links for you to click on for more information.     http://rvsafety.com/weighing/wheel-position-weighing. And possibly our process and forms page. - http://rvsafety.com/weighing-process-forms
Coach weights will be done as you leave, on Sunday September 16, 2018.  You must make appointment with RV Safety, they will have a table in the vendor area, for you to make you appointment, ask questions and receive information.

How about a DRIVING SCHOOL!  My RV School will be there to help you learn to drive, this big thing comfortably.  Or help with just turning, backing up or normal down the road driving while teaching you how to do it safely.  This is done in your own Discovery and you can have your own personal two (2) or three (3) hour session.  You all know that both the pilot and copilot need to know how to drive, because that “WHAT IF” situation can happen anytime, to anyone.  Here is the link for this school.

A Fire Safety seminar with a secession of actually escaping a Discovery.  I’m hoping to have two (2) or three (3) members that will let us use their coach for this escape procedure.  As you know each model seems to have their own fire escape windows in a different area, some of them seem impossible to escape from.  But you need to hear and attend this seminar for your own safety.

Camp Discovery at a National Rally?  Well, we are going to have some of our best seminars by our own Marshall, Gary and Kerry at this rally.  No, I don’t know what yet, but you know they will all be Great.
Thanks Guys!

We will be having a book exchange, so bring your books and get a new one to read.  I will have a table set up in the vendor area.

This is from Kerry Pinkerton and I copied it from the Discovery groups .io site:  For all of the DYI members there are some great RV salvage stores in the Goshen, Elkhart area.  One of the best is
Bontrager’s, it has EVERYTHING.  Furniture, electrical, plumbing, wiring, appliances, wallpaper, fabric, siding, paneling, you name it and they have it.  THANKS KERRY

Don’t forget if you need service from Fleetwood factory, you are only 90 miles away (Goshen to Decatur) so make your appointment, but NOT during the rally.

Remember that if you want to park together you MUST come in together.  And if you need to arrive earlier than 9/7 (Friday) or leave later than 9/16 (Sunday).  You MUST call the Fairgrounds at 574-533-3247 and make your own reservations.

We will be in Goshen early, but registration will be on Monday September 10, 2018 starting at 9:00 AM
In the ECCC Building, in the Martin Room.  Yes, there will be signs for you to find us.

We have so much more in the planning stages, so keep your eyes open for more happenings on the web and group site.  This will be a can’t miss rally.

Can’t wait to see you in Goshen!
