Plans are well under way for our MAY 3-6 gathering at the Silver Spur RV Park in Silverton, Oregon. Here’s a preview to whet your appetite and give you the motivation to register for the event. We have 15 spaces reserved and we have exclusive use of the club house for the duration of our stay. FOR THIS RALLY, YOU WILL REGISTER DIRECTLY WITH THE PARK. Please call the park (rather than reserving online) and tell them that you are with NWCC. Sites are $46.00 per night to be paid in full at the time of registration. (The reservation fee is refundable, except for a $10.00 fee upon greater than 24-hour cancellation or a first night charge upon less than 24 hours.)
Rally fees are $30.00 per coach (does NOT include dinner at Garden View Restaurant on Friday)
Thursday arrivals will have a BYOB and “LIGHT” bring-an-appetizer-to-share-Meet-n-Greet followed by a yet to be determined meal prepared by your hosts.
Friday morning you will find fruit, juices, croissants and muffins available in the club house when you’re ready to start your day (BYO coffee/tea). That’ll be a great time to arrange carpools for those who want to share an adventure and to arrange rides for heading up the hill for our evening out at Garden View Restaurant where we have reservations for 30. It’s a lovely restaurant that overlooks the Oregon Garden and you can preview some of their menu at: https://locu.com/places/the-garden-view-restaurant-oregon-garden-resort-silverton-us/#menu
Saturday breakfast will be in the main lodge and is “Park” wide for a $7.00 fee payable when you register, and that evening we have the park BBQs for grilling the protein of your choice. Please bring a vegetable or salad to share. Dessert will be provided by your hosts.
Friday and Saturday are days for exploring or just kicking back and visiting. For those of you who love flowers, save some room in your summer landscape (and your coach) for a hanging basket (or 2 or 3), some potted plants or even some veggies because many of us will be making a pilgrimage to Godfrey’s to stock up. Then there’s the Willamette Valley Fruit Company for bags of berries and or pies, der Glockenspiel for lunch, The Oregon Garden, Frank Lloyd Wright House, Silver Creek Falls, and, of course, shop-hoppin’ the streets of downtown Silverton. Woodburn and the outlet Mall are a few minutes’ drive and Salem is just a few minutes in the other direction.
SUNDAY we’ll say our good-byes over Vern’s Cinnamon Rolls, fruit, juice and your own favorite beverage (and any left-overs that might be needing to be used up).
There is a lot to do in the area; antique shops galore; alpaca farms; a pie factory nearby; a fantastic floral/veggie nursery a short drive from the Park; The Oregon Gardens and the Frank Lloyd Wright House are close and for the really adventurous, a trek around Silver Creek Falls will provide plenty of exercise.
After you make your registration with the park, sign up for the rally online below. Registrations must be made at the park by April 15, 2018.
