Caverns Bus Rally May 17th 20, 2013
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:11:49 PM »
The Grand Canyon Caverns is hosting a bus conversions rally May 17 to 19th.  They have hook ups for the first 70 registered.  Fees are only $20 to register, motel rooms available, Saturday night BBQ with western band on stage in the RV park,  Old car show on Saturday and a Rodeo is planned for Sunday. Great quiet RV park on Roue 66 in Northern AZ.  Call the Caverns at 928 422 3223 to book a RV space or motel room or to register. Will be fun!
Thanks

Clifford, that will be a good time of the year. Looking for an excuse to go out and add some bugs to our new front bumpers  ;)! Twenty bucs for a rally sounds cheap enough  ;D

The way I read the ad in BCM it says ---Rally Rate $20.00 per PERSON (includes T-shirt)
                                                  ---RV Spaces $30.00 (doesn't say if it's per day or not) w/hook-ups
                                                                 Must mention bus rally to get that rate
                                                  --- Meals -- Dinner Saturday $20.00
                                                                   Breakfast Sunday $15.00
So I guess it is $20.00 except for ?????

Here's the way I see it - I'm looking at the advertiser that came out with the latest fantastic issue of Bus Conversions Magazine.    ;D

Car Registration ( we're not car showing,) $0
Bus show Registration.  ( we may want to show our bus) $20
Exhibit space.. probably not. 
Bus RV Parking - RV Hook up        $30
Barbeque Saturday night , $20  per person.  Like to eat, so ..   $40
Breakfast Buffet $15 per person, still like to eat, so   $30

Total we would pay.    $120

We're probably going to be there - especially since we are almost right down the street from the Caverns.   :D

Kind Regards, Phil

K, I've let 'em know we are coming & getting registration stuff going.  :D

Hope to see some bus friends there as well!  This will be our second rally.  Maybe I'll bring the Doghouse (bass) if any bluegrass folk will be doing the same?  Gary from Bus Conversions Magazine is planning on being there as well.

Kind Regards, Phil

Sounds like the word is getting out. Yes the Rally fees are $20, then if you want meals etc. you ad on, and the RV space fee is per night.
Trying this why so people do not have to buy anything they do not want. Hope to make it a fun weekend for all attending.
Thanks for spreading the word and calling in reservations so we can keep a bus and head count.

People are booking spaces and rooms at the Cavern for the bus rally. Going to be fun. Will be nice to see Phil Lyons there with his Moosecreek bus and Gary, the new publisher of Bus Conversions Magazine. To clear up the cost, it's $20 to register, then if you want a room or RV spot, or meals, you pay as you go. The palce has a restraunt, so you can really eat whenever and however you want or join the group.
928 422 3223 is the Caverns number to reserve it.

Darn finally having one there again, just a 100 miles from home, and we will miss it. We leave on May 12 for the 25th anual Run For The Wall motorcycle mission.

Hey all,

I'm trying hard to see if I can at least stop by on Tuesday on my way from Phoenix to Vegas. How many folks will be around late morning on Tuesday? Wish I would've known earlier that this was happening I would've tried to make it work.

Still might happen, just depends on how fast I can get my work done

A bus nut friend of mine called The Caverns yesterday and found out the Cavern's is cancelling the rally, citing low registrations and internal issues with one of owners of The Caverns.  The Caverns are refunding camping fees for anyone requesting them.  Those who want to come anyway and have an informal gathering are welcome to do so.  There just won't be any formal rally activities.

They will be officially communicating this cancellation to the folks at BCM so that they can put out a cancellation notice on this site and perhaps by email.  It would be too late now to put it in a magazine.

I emailed Gary last night.  Based on his reply he has not been contacted by The Caverns yet.  He or Phil will call them today.  Gary is very disappointed the rally is cancelled.  This was going to be the first rally he could attend and meet subscribers and forum members face to face.  In view of the cancellation, Gary and Phil will be cancelling their reservations.

Gary also said that he is considering looking into another location to hold an actual BCM rally later this year.

Laughlin Nev in the fall Gary on the river then you catch all the Canadian bus people on the way down south, the Riverside will work with you somebody piss Mikey off  ::)

 Sad part about this rally there was so little information it wasn't even in the calendar section here that I could find, for a successful rally you need to do like Tom did with his GM rally in AR get the word out he used about every forum on the net that would allow it

good luck
