Posting copied here for quick read.   BTW Angela will work hard to keep previous attendees in their old sites if requested.  Please be aware, I have NO control over cancellations, deposits, or refund policies of Deer Run RV Resort.

 

As of now the East Coast Rally will be held April 17-24 at Deer Run RV Resort in Crossville, TN.  Due to Covid restrictions certain changes will be instituted in the format to hopefully lessen everyone’s chance of contracting the disease.  WE WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO LESSEN THAT CHANCE OF INFECTION  BUT BY YOUR ATTENDANCE YOU VOLUNTARILY ACCEPT AND UNDERSTAND THE RISKS INVOLVED AND HOLD THE ORGANIZERS HARMLESS.  Also you must agree to safety guidelines the organizers feel are necessary based on medical data.  Since the organizers and presenters are all voluntary and not compensated if you cannot accept these preconditions, please do not attend this year!  Hate to be blunt but is necessary.  The changes will be as follows:

1.  Fewer seminars- we will still cover the basics and information necessary for folks new to HDTs and some select more advanced topics.

2.  Pot luck, spirits night, some social events or meals MAY or MAY NOT occur depending on the course of the virus, vaccination,  cases in the local area, any restrictions from government.  So be patient and we will update as time gets closer.

3.  More “free time” to have small gatherings around trucks, campers, or projects.

4.  No formal “happy hours” but tent or campfires should be available for small socially distanced gatherings.  We would encourage including first timers with seasoned veterans at your discretion.  We will hopefully be able to come up with a site for an outdoor bigger campfire and gathering site.

5.  NO t- shirts this year.  If the rally is forced to cancel they are pre-paid and we could not refund any orders.

6.  Registration for the Rally itself will open in the next couple of weeks at the website.  We are reworking and tweeking so that you will register and list your credit card like prior rallies BUT your card will not be charged until a week or two prior to the rally so in the event the rally must be cancelled, refunds will be unnecessary.  I will announce when registration is open.

7.  I have spoken to the new ownership at Deer Run and they are working with Kim to keep things as close to possible as in past years.  They are prepared to start taking registrations for sites at the time of this posting.  FOR NEW FOLKS.. you must reserve a campsite with Deer Run separately from your registration for the rally.  Use this link to contact Angela and be sure to tell them you are with the East Coast HDT Rally.   (931) 484-3333.   https://www.deerrunrvresort.com/
 

8.  Provisions of soft drinks, water, paper goods will be limited this year since plans for large gatherings will be dependent on events.  This decrease will be mirrored in a reduction in the rally fee which in the past was based on provisions for the rally and meals provided.

9.  The rally fee as stated will be guaranteed to be no more than previous rallies.  We will calculate the expenses incurred and divide by number of attendees to come up with the rally fee PRIOR to card charges.  Also, for legal reasons when registering an electronic signature will be required on a release of liability concerning Covid as stated above.

10.  Finally, circumstances make change necessary, but hopefully only for this year.  We still plan on having some fun, some games, and the opportunity to meet old friends and make new.

Dec 21 Update:  Tennessee has instituted a 10 person limit to public gatherings effective from now to January 19th.  If you are looking at reserving a site at Deer Run may want to delay awhile or at least be clear on the refund policy if the event is cancelled due to Covid.  Again I have NO control over their reservation policies.  Let’s hope things take a turn for the better with the vaccine.  Registration for the rally on EastCoastHDTRally.com is due to open January 1.  Will try to update again prior to that date.
