The Rally 2011 - Redmond, Oregon

Thanks to all of our wonderful Woodall’s readers who stopped by our booth at The Rally in Redmond, Oregon. It’s always great to see your smiling faces whether it be for the 1st time or the 15th. For those of you who couldn’t make it this year, you missed out on some awesome deals on our directories & guides and RV and camping books along with some great entertainment, seminars and RV products.

On RV Publications Day on Thursday, Anna Maria Prach provided loads of fun with her line dancing instructions, and the two lovely ladies from Clowns Unlimited tirelessly airbrushed and “branded” temporary tattoos on hundreds of adventurous Rally attendees. The Wagon Wheel of Wonder was also, of course, as popular as last year’s. Over $29,000 worth in prizes were also given away in the raffle held at high noon. Our generous prizes donors will be mentioned in the next issues of Trailer Life, MotorHome and Highways magazines. We’re also happy to announce that a total of 788 pounds of food was also collected in our Pub Day food drive for NeighborImpact. What an awesome feat for just five hours! Kudos to you all!

We received a wonderful response to our new iPhone (and iPad) app – the Woodall’s RV & Camping Copilot celebrated by over a thousand buttons we passed out that read “Woodall’s Makes Me Appy”… and little cell phone holders in the shape of a reclining lawn chair.

Most of all, you missed Woodall’s exciting booth raffle sponsored by our super generous friends at Splendide. As promised we gave away a brand new, beautiful WD2100XC washer-dryer combo unit on Saturday, 7/16 at 11 am. The ecstatically happy and lucky winners pictured here are Kathy and Dennis Sweitzer from Simi Valley, California. For somebody who “never wins anything”, Dennis was one incredibly deserving winner who’d done all his research and been wanting and shopping for a Splendide for over three years. They drove away Saturday afternoon in their 2007 Fleetwood Providence with the Splendide of their dreams and the promise of super clean clothes for years to come. Congratulations to the Sweitzers and thanks again to Splendide for another successful raffle!

We hope you will be able to make it to the next Rally in March 2012 at the Phoenix International Speedway. It promises to be a rip-roaring good time… especially for you NASCAR fans. See you there!
