2012 Port Crescent Rally


  1. We’ve come up with an idea / theme for next year….  “The TCT Autocamp”  we will try to “recreate” a typical TCT Autocamp.   Part of that will be to have a classic car parked in front of each trailer.  There are several other aspects of a TCT Autocamp that will need a bit of research and planning.  This will be fun!
  2. Ideas for next year’s entertainment…. DJ ok?  Prefer the Swing Band? Other Ideas?  ED W. was checking on another idea.
  3. Let me know if what site you would like… Some have already so I have that noted….If you check out the map on line -(http://www.midnrreservations.com/ParkCampMapDisplay.aspx?CID=69) We have sites 1-31 including 23A  and 97-137 including 99A and 122A. If you were happy with your spot and would like that again – please let me know – even if you are not sure…I’ll just make a note “pending”….
  4. This is going to require a bit of help… I have created a list of Committees – oh we all hate that word… ok teams and it maybe a team of 1 and a few thoughts about tasks….   If you’d like to volunteer now or later that would be great!  I think a couple of them will need some lead time – like the History and maybe signage – but the others can all happen next May or June.

"Begin as creation,
   become a creator.
Never wait at a barrier.
   In this kitchen stocked with fresh food,
         why sit content with a cup of warm water?" Rumi
