I will have details soon. You will be able to sign up through the Southeast Bus Nuts web site
& pay all costs there, maybe even extra nights. It is going to be a good one as this is the normally scheduled
spring SE Busnuts rally & will be a joint Eagles International rally as well. You can check out the
campground at http://www.mayberrycampground.com/. There's plenty of interesting links about
Mt Airy which is the town the Andy Griffith show was filmed in. Details soon to come. Since I made the reservation
way in advance we have up to 50 sites available. Come one come all!

John, I put a link to this thread on our main website: http://eaglesinternational.net/category/events

The rally details suggest a great rally. We would love to attend, but have a grandson graduating the same time.

Thanks so much for hosting this rally!!!

Ok folks a little more info on this rally. Still putting activities, etc together. If you visit http://www.sebusnuts.org/HomePage.html you can
check out a rally happening in Ocala, Fl Feb 16-19. This will show you how to sign up for the Mayberry rally. It doesn't get any easier. All the campground
contacting is done. We will have available slots till 30 days prior to the rally. After that we will have to give them up. Probably will be able to hold on to
a few for late comers. After the Ocala rally the Mayberry rally & details will show up on the SE busnuts web site. That is the time to start signing up.
Probably Feb 21 or so. You will have the opportunity to sign up for extra days as well.

Good morning all,
Just a quick update on the rally. We are at 29 coaches as of this morning (3-31-17) for the rally. We have 45 slots open which will be closed on April 10. If you plan on coming please register at SEBusnuts.org (its quick and simple) before April 10 as the reaming slots will be turned back to the campground. If you register after April 10 you will not be guaranteed a spot within the group area, so please register ASAP. Wayne and Byron are coming from the mid-west, so come on EAGLES and join the fun!

The wife says I need help. We have 5 trips planned this year and I told myself I was not going to Louisiana to get my fix of mudbugs. Well I was talking to our son the other day and he told me the company he works for is having their annual Crawfish Boil in New Iberia the week after the Mt Airy rally. Now I can't be on that side of the US and miss a free crawfish boil. I have fallen off the wagon. I might have to leave the rally a day early to get to Louisiana and stretch the belly to get ready for the free feed. Oh the power of the mudbug.

Just talked t5o the campground as we are slowly adding a coach here & there. Our sites are being held for another week & after that they
will take on latecomers as long as there's room. So go ahead wait till the last minute. I dare ya! Wayne it would be a wonderful gesture if you
would have some mud bugs flown in to Mayberry so we can help prepare you for the rest of your journey. When is Beau Bridge happening again?
Isn't it every other year? Sounds like another rally in the works.
