Some details on the itinerary:

The Wilbur May Museum will provide us with a private docent to be with us during the tour of the museum.   The exhibit during that time will be WWII focus.  They have an amazing gift store with things we have never seen anywhere else and very reasonable prices on things.  

We may have a docent give us a private tour of Harrah’s Auto Museum.

Kimmie Candy is the largest candy manufacturer in the state of Nevada.  Lots of free samples.

The schedule for the date of the visit to the Fleishman Planetarium has not been published at the time of this writing.  

Gold Ranch will issue a coupon to each coach to get a 2 for 1 dinner one time during the rally.  So, if someone wants to do that, it will make a really inexpensive dinner on the night they eat on their own and they can do that just by walking across the parking lot.

This rally will be handled a little differently.  Each person will be responsible for bringing enough money to cover the events they wish to attend.  No funds will be collected ahead of time.

Site fees for the five nights of the rally at this time are $214.95 for back-in, $229.95 for pull-through; however, winter rates have not been set for this year, so it’s possible these amounts will change somewhat.

To register for the rally:

1) Reserve a site directly with the campground by calling using the contact information above. Tell them you are with the Leap’n Lions group.

2) Complete the Rally Registration Form and mail to Bev Bedard, 3285 San Mateo Avenue, Reno, NV 89509-5045.

You must be a member of the Leap'n Lions RV Club.
Deadline for registering is September 20th.
Attendance is limited to 15 coaches.
