Maritime Holiday March Press Release

Published: March 11, 2008

West Point lighthouse Prince Edward Island is one of the jewels of the world. Noted for its fine beaches; its unique scenery and beautiful coves, it is truly the choice of deluxe vacation spots. Add to this the wonderful and friendly people and you have the perfect rally location.

Although Region 1 has held their rallies all over Eastern Canada and the New England States, this is (to the best of my knowledge) the first time in P.E.I. and it is truly going to be a “Maritime Holiday”. Think of it, catered breakfast every morning (no cooking chores). Sightseeing is a must with lots of time for visiting the local craft stores and shops. Within easy driving distance of the rally site are seven (7) lighthouses. Which ones do you want to see? Why not come to the rally and see them all. Yes they are open to the public. While traveling to the lighthouses, stop off at the many historical places. Don’t forget to stop and visit “Anne of Green Gables” and try out the many eating places on the island (got to have lunch you know)

Talking about food, the rally fee includes two great dinners as only the chefs of Prince Edward Island can provide. The Tin Chef Cookout and the BBQ on Friday are sure to become legendary as it is rumered that the units are sending their best cooks and chefs. While potatos and lobster are the prime industry, there is a wonderful jam and jelly factory near North Rusco that is truly the place to spend money.

If you like dancing and DJ’s, come to the rally. If you like fiddles and maritime entertainment, come to the rally. If you like to win at bingo, come to the rally. If you want to just sit on the beach or at pool side or on the hillside and relax or read a good book, come to the rally.

Seminars include “RV Communications” and “Brakes and Bearings” , both with special booklets that will be given only to attendees. An expert on “hitches” will provide another seminar. These are just three of the many to chose from. Workshops include “Website Operations” and more.

For more info and a registration form, see the flier at the Region One website. Don’t forget the easy way to get here is to join the caravan from Region 2 or Pam Bleakney’s or Rich Walbridges’s caravans. Also talk to Dan over at Cape Cod about his express caravan.
