TGO Rally 2018

TGO Rally Report


Our first ever Florida Dogwood Rally was held February 20 thru 22, 2018 at the Great Outdoors RV & Golf Resort in Titusville FL.

Steve & Sue Sohles and Butch & Liz Jones co-hosted this Rally for those who wanted to bring their coaches, as well as others who came to visit and join in meals and Happy Hours too.  

Attending with Coaches were Jim & Susan Buelow, Henry & Patty Keiken, Fairleigh & Cil Schoolar and Mike & Marcy Vreeland. Special thanks to the Keiken's for providing their tables and Coach awning for a shady seating area.  

Dogwoods also participating included Berkley & Karen Alexander, Clint & Pat Allen, Ed & Connie Tillman, Jim Martin & Amy Legare, Steve & Mary Hall (currently staying at TGO), Carl & Donna Gruel (TGO residents now). 

Also joining in were Jim & Nancy Prevatt (guest of the Tillmans) and Jim & Bonnie Spain (guests of the Sohles). The Spains joined Dogwood at the end of the rally, so please welcome these new members. 

Tuesday night was another enticing Dogwood pot luck, attended by 20, with lots of delicious contributions. How these meals come together with so many good dishes and treats is a wonder. Many thanks to the Jones for generously opening their home for this event, and all enjoyed the evening. 

Wednesday night our group of 25 had dinner at TGO's Blue Heron restaurant, a short walk from the Rally Lot, where we enjoyed a private room and ordering off the menu. Of course, more visiting followed in the Rally Lot afterwards. 

Our Rally ended Thursday morning with doughnuts at the Rally Lot.

We were fortunate to have spectacular weather while spending time together, and adding to our many good memories in Dogwood.
