Anne Willis sent me the following information this week. I did not compare it to the information I had previously posted. However, this information should be considered "official"

I received an email asking if you have to be a club/chapter member to attend. They also asked if it was necessary to have a toad at the rally.

All Eagle Chapter sponsored rallies are open to the general public. At past rallies we often have other types of busesRVs attend. We welcome folks who share our love of Eagle buses.

As far as having alternative transportation at our rallies, it is always desirable, but others at the rallies are always good to provide ride sharing.

The only thing we ask it that you make reservations for the rally. The host often bases various activities and meals on the reservations. Most hosts will try to accommodate last minute reservations (if resources are available), but unplanned attendees can present a problem

Another question that often comes up: "I don't have a bus (or my bus is not ready yet" - can I attend all or part of the rally". Again, visitors are always welcome. Depending on your participation, you may be expected to pay all or part of the rally fee. However, if you just want to show up and talk to the members and look at our buses, that is great.
