Details:

USA Luxury Coach is pleased to invite everyone back to the 8th Clearwater Rally--held at the same Parliament/Coachworx location. This rally started as an informal get together with three weeks' notice in 2010, and has sold out every year it has been held. I have served as Rally Master for 7 of these rallies and we are including the most popular features and ideas. It's also a "Ladies Friendly Rally", with the only cooking needed is to bring heavy appetizers/hors d'oeuvres for 20 people and a bottle of your favorite wine for Happy Hour Thursday night. After that--all the cooking and cleanup will be done by the men! Plus a Ladies Ocean Front brunch, onsite massages, and great weather and shopping await!

This rally started out with 20 coaches our first year and grew to 40+ in later years. Due to the reduced footprint and planned construction we are only accepting 25 coaches for now, based upon order of signup. I have found out by painful experience that some who say they are coming often do not, due to change of plans or other issues. This is understandable, but often we were not notified and I simply don't have time to track down those that don't respond to my emails and phone calls right before the Rally. That is the reason we are requiring a Reservation Deposit to hold your site, and a cancellation fee if your plans change (50% will be refunded if you cancel more before February 1st and your site will be assigned to the next person on our standby list (note: you cannot give or reassign your reservation to another attendee)--your cancellation fee will be used to buy beer at the rally and drinks for the Ladies' Oceanfront Brunch.

How To Register:

1) Check to see if your name is on the attendee list below. If not, post to this thread to get a Registration or Standby Number (I expect to clear 5 or more standbys as we get closer to the Rally Date, due to cancellations and construction updates).

2) Mail your $75 Reservation Deposit within 7 days of being assigned your Registration Number (Standby's should wait until they are actually cleared and receive a Registration Number before mailing your deposit):

Jim Nichols
USA Luxury Coach
4501B Ulmerton Road
Clearwater, FL 33762

NOTE: Please make your check out to Jim Nichols--NOT USA Luxury Coach (or it will be returned).

Contact me via email if you want to use PayPal, Venmo, or Cash App

NOTE: Please write RALLY in big letters on the outside of your mailing envelope.

2) Email me (please do NOT message me via the site or texts) at Clearwater.RallyMaster@gmail.com AFTER you have mailed your Reservation Deposit. I will contact you if I have not received your Reservation Deposit within 7 days of your email. If I do not receive an email or your deposit within 14 days of assigning you a Registration Number, your reservation will be cancelled and your site given to a Standby.

3) In your email include:
a) Your name and your spouse's name, and anyone else attending with you (needed for meal planning)
b) Your WOG name
c) Your cell phone number
d) What type of coach you have
e) Any special requests-i.e. 50 amp service, tech diagnosis and paint estimates, tire service info, vegetarian meals, early arrival or late departure, (if available)

Your Reservation Deposit will be applied to your meal plans, camping (electric) fees, and any other requested services upon arrival. Please bring a check with you or the correct change if paying cash.

More details to come about massages, coach washes, daily schedule, meals, etc.
