FROG Rally

We are here at the Elkhart County 4-H Fairgrounds in Goshen, Indiana for the annual FROG Rally. FROG equates to "Forest River Owners Group". As our 5th. wheel was manufactured by a company named Prime Time, and are included in the Forest River Group.

We arrived Sunday around noon to a great bunch of volunteers greeting us and welcoming us to this event. We were escorted to our site by a volunteer riding a golf cart. Directed for easy parking of the trailer by two other volunteers. How great is that!

We checked in at the Registration center where we received a packet of information along with our name tags. Next, we hitched a ride from the many volunteer operated "taxies" golf carts designed for 6 riders. We were asked "Where to?" and then taken to the Service registration building. There we checked in with the Prime Time folks and were confirmed of the "free" service work that will be done on our trailer.

Being in the handicapped area, we were able to walk back to our RV after our meeting with the service people. We noticed that another RV pulled in next to ours and we struck up a conversation with them. It's their first time at this rally, and they are from the Ohio/West Virginia border area.

Later they joined us at 5:10 PM for our walk to the area where the dinner will be served at 5:30 PM.
Just a small portion of the line to the dining hall.
Maybe we should have left earlier as the line seemed to never come to an end. We temporarily forgot that with 750 RV's here that should equate to approximately 1500 hungry people to feed.

Once inside we sat at the first table next to the exit. A wonderful breeze was coming in and we figured after eating we would exit as we have heard the "welcome speech" before.

Looking straight on from our seat.

Clicking on the link below will show a video of how many people are here waiting for our meal.

And a great meal of a pork chop, chicken pieces, bbq sauce, baby potatoes, mixed veggies, coleslaw, etc. was enjoyed by all. 

Monday agenda for those wishing to go to any of many seminars:

As Wilma isn't into any seminars, we will probably go for a ride in "Amish Country" and check out the several small towns. 

Or we may want to walk through all of the new RV's being offered for sale, or maybe walk through the Vendor's area and see what kind of great deals on items that we just can't live without. Who knows? That's the great thing about these Rallys. 

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.

  1. That is a big group and long line. Winnebago has a national rally every year also, with about 1200+ rigs. I is a fun time time, also.
