Bruce Knee, myself & maybe a few other East Coasters will be flying out to Oregon for a few days. I am wondering how many people/coaches are planning to be there. I look forward to seeing some fabulous West Coast busses and any others that will be there. Give a shout out to check in.

Last year there was about 175 coaches. Lots of wonderful people and oodles of great food.  We plan to be there again, if I don't cook another motor.   Cable

We will be attending and will be vendors for the third year.

The Eagle, barring some major problem in the interim, will be at its first bus rally!!

The rally is great, and the location is also very nice.  There are motels not to far from the activities (thank goodness we won't need them this year)

Is there an entrance fee for those who just want to look around.

I am just in the "thinking about it" stage of looking at buses.  So much to learn it's a little scary.

Are there motels there or do you have to go back to salem?

If it is the same as last year, you can just wander in and look around if you like.  If you want eat or attend seminars, then you need to register.  Check out their website at: http://www.busnusa.com/

We stayed at the Courtesy Inn in Monmouth  (503-838-4438).  It is a n OK motel with a quick food restaurant next door and a good full service restaurant on the other side. 

Monmouth is about 7 miles south of the fair grounds. 

The other close town is Dallas, OR.  We did not look into motels there, as the Courtesy served us fine.  My mapping program shows that there is a Best Western in Dallas.

Hi All
My wife and I plan to fly out from Springfield MO. Bus not ready yet.  Sad  We have made reservations at the Best Western in Dallas OR. People very nice on the phone and reported only 45 minutes from the coast. I have sent a couple of emails to the Busn' folks asking who and what the seminars are going to be. Reply was "we don't know yet and won't till 1 week before". Hope the seminars are worth the $1500 cost for the trip. But with 175 buses last year, should get some good ideas for my conversion. Shocked
Hope to see and meet many on the board.

I was there last year and plan to be there again this year. I live in Salem, OR so is not far to go. If I can help in any way E-mail me alkco1@msn.com.
The thing that I would like to see would be an open house of coaches that are present.
