The only thing we're aware of is Christy's get together in Joplin, MO about mid month October
...but you can check the calender of events and see what's been posted.

There is an Eagles International (FMCA Chapter) rally in Branson Mo. on 10/2-5/06.  The Trail Boss is Byron Pigg (417-753-2285).  The last I heard, there are at least 40 Eagles signed up. 

Obviously, the rally is primarily for members, but they often open the rally to others if there is room.  The Branson Lakeside RV Park has been reduced in size in recent years, so I suspect they have filled their quota, but you can check with Byron.

We will be there.

Thank you Jim, while I am a Member of FMCA I can't really keep up with all their activities...I stand corrected.

I attended several Eagle rallies and never heard of anyone being turned away.
One member, who cooked at Bus-n-USA, brings his own big grill and the food he produces is worth the trip!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride

Richard, I did not mean to imply that they would turn folks away.  However, the campground is somewhat limited in space. 

It is only fair to give the dues paying members the first crack at the space available. 

Like any other organization, Eagles International is always interested in increasing their membership.  The best way to do that is to open the rallies to non-members when there is space available.

That is the reason why I gave Bryon Piggs' phone number in my first post.

Now for a bit of an editorial comment:

PLEASE do not wait till the last minute to sign up or worse yet, just plan on dropping in.  All rallies take a lot of planning and Byron does a great job.  He must know how many folks are coming so he can plan his activities.  I am sure he plans for a few extra, but if he is overwhelmed with folks he did not plan for, that becomes unfair to him.  End of soap box!
