Rally time is almost here! We are so very excited for all the support we have received for this year’s Rally Lite! All RV sites have been assigned; emails have been sent to all Wagonmasters or individuals not camping with a group and we are ready to have some fun! Travel safely to all and see you in just a few short hours! If you have not received your site assignment, please touch base with your Wagonmaster if you are camping with a group or contact us at CaliforniaElksRallyWagonmaster@gmail.com if you are not camping with a group and need your site assignment.
We continue to add to our schedule and will provide updates as it changes.
Check out the schedule posted to our Schedule of Events page on our website or click here.
We will also have daily schedule flyers available for you at the Rally. PLEASE NOTE: This will change as events and vendors are added.
Thank you all for your continued support and participation.
We have now on the books for one of our fun events for each LODGE as a GROUP to do a decorating contest of your camping area (as a group). The them will be Purple Pig! More details to follow; but if you are attending the Rally get with your group and get your site(s) decorated for the upcoming fun competition!
Buckle up…here we go!
We just didn’t feel like we could go a year without something to represent our Rally. This year we are going with a Rally “Lite”.
As we scurry to put this together ~ We ask for patience in advance. We will all have a great time and represent what Elks do.
With a significantly compressed time frame we’ve given people two options to register. Please see the “Registration” page on our website for that information.
Should you have any questions; we are here to help. Please contact any of us listed on the “Contacts” page.
We look forward to seeing those that can make it and having a great time.
That’s right folks, we haven’t even wrapped up 2019 Rally and have already started planning for 2020 “Share the Vision” and mark your calendars now!!
Well Rally time is over, but the work is not. While we try and wrap things up and get everything outstanding paid and finalized for this year’s Rally, we can only give you and estimate of about $34,000 raised this year. We definitely beat last year, but again have some last minute expenses that have to be turned in, tally it all up and then get it into the bank for FINAL numbers.
Thank you to Jack and Cher Lintz, Chuck Vollrath, Eileen Rasmussen, Stan and Darlene Vastine for your year’s of service on our corp of “Purple Shirts” and for all you have done for the rally. We hope we can see you all next year as attendants, even though you have moved on from your Rally Officer positions. Again, thank you for your year’s of service.
Welcome to our new Rally Chairman, Chip Durham who has a great corp of Officers coming up next year for our 52nd Annual Elks Rally and they have already got some great ideas going.
Last but definitely not least, thank you to all the Purple Shirts that worked so hard again this year and are coming back next year for 2020. This is always a team effort and it’s a great team to be part of. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
Special thank you to Pat and Cynthia Riley for all the Rally printing! It always look so great.
Thank you to each and every Lodge that attended and that held events, served food and more. WE LITERALLY COULD NOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOU ALL.
Congratulations to Clovis Lodge for winning the Sunday drawing of the bar credit totaling about $4775 that will be sent in to CHEA for their Citation. This was new this year and we drew a lodge name on Sunday to share the credit, since it’s a group effort at that bar!
If we have forgotten anything, please our apologies in advance. We will be sending off all final information to CHEMPI in the next few weeks so that each Lodge gets their special citation next year.
FROM THE PURPLE SHIRTS – WE LOVE AND THANK YOU ALL FOR MAKING THIS A GREAT FUNDRAISER FOR THE KIDS.
Go ahead and mark your Calendars now for Oct 8,9,10 and 11, 2020 for our 52nd Annual Elks Rally!! See you all next year!
The Rally assignments are going out as of early yesterday (Sunday) to all Wagonmasters of each Lodge. The site numbers will then be assigned to members in your group by YOUR LODGE Wagonmaster. If you need to know what site number you are in, please reach out to YOUR LODGE Wagonmaster or person organizing your group for the Rally. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all your patience. If there are any site issues when you get to the Resort, please make sure you reach out to YOUR LODGE Wagonmaster first. The staff at the resort will not be able to help.
Whew!! We are really trying to hammer this all out this week, so again we thank you for your patience. Finally got the schedules finalized and you can click here to see them. You will have these in your welcome packets and they will be available at the Information booth during the Rally.
Next we are moving onto site assignment and hoping to have those emails out to you by this coming weekend. If you are planning to go earlier than Thursday or staying longer than Sunday, those extra nights MUST be arranged through Golden Village Palms directly. Once you get your site assignment, you can call them and arrange if possible early arrivals/late departures.
Again we thank you for your patience and ask that if you or you know anyone interested in helping with the Rally next year, please have them email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. WE NEED YOU IN ORDER TO KEEP THE RALLY GOING!!
WOW and Happy Rally to all!! We have received an overwhelming amount of emails and just can’t seem to get caught up on them, so hoping this announcement will help fill in some questions and inquiries on Rally camp site assignments. We just closed the registration one week ago, our key player that Golden Village Palms quit and we are working with someone new at the resort. We are awaiting the resort map and site assignments from their office and as soon as we get them, we then need time to assign and place all the campers of the Rally. So please be patient and know that we are working on it and will get the site numbers to the Wagonmaster of each Lodge ASAP! Thank you in advance for your patience.
