Sorry everyone, when I tried to change the venue last minute, it messed things up. I couldn't find anyplace that would do it on such short notice, that is why I didn't post the update.
So, we're postponing this 2 weeks, and will hold it Oct 13, 2012.
If anybody knows of a venue (preferably, free, public access, and hopefully sheltered/indoors, near SOUTH Omaha I would really love the information as I am having trouble locating someplace to do it on short notice and am not very familiar with that area). Thanks everyone, for your understanding and patience.

Well, we were going to do Aurora, but since Grannie was the only attendee from the west area and almost all of the others are from Omaha, I guess I will try to find us a venue closer to Omaha. So details are still not solid yet. Sorry everyone.
The time will still likely be at about 2pm, though, so plan accordingly.

Based on the replies so far, Aurora is looking like the most central location.

Kids are ALWAYS welcome. I should have said that before, sorry.
We usually try to find a venue that has a park or other entertainment for children, as I have 4 of my own that always come.

emoticon UPDATE emoticon

Well, as many of you know, we've been dealing with illness and injury in my family lately so the rally this year was postponed. However, I think we are going to have a temporary reprieve from both the medical issues and the HEAT, so we are going to try and schedule a rally still, for the 29th of September. This should allow me time to make the arrangements and the weather should be nicer for any outdoor activities as well.

So mark your calendars!
...and, as always, Children are Welcome! emoticon

Unfortunately, I will not have the time to host two separate rallies this year. That said, I would like to know who thinks they will make it and where they are from, so that I can try to find the most central location for everyone who plans to attend. As the location is subject to change based on the attendees, I will need to have replies to this post in by Sept 15th at the latest.

Please include:
Username
First Name
Location you will be coming from (city / town, or closest city / town if rural)

Thanks everyone! I look forward to seeing you there.

I was working out the details when my mother fell and broke her hip. I will continue to work on it as soon as she is able to be off of bed rest. Sorry for the delay folks.

So far I've only "sold" one "ticket" for the west rally and none for the east. Time is running out, please RSVP via the links below. The "tickets" are FREE, its just a way to keep track of the number of people coming.

The CENTRAL/WEST Rally will be held on April 23rd @ 1pm at Windmill SRA - Gibbon, NE 68840.*
*Contingent on at least 4 attendees other than my family.

The EAST Rally will be held on May 14th @ 1pm at Eugene T. Mahoney SRA - Ashland, NE 68003.

If you haven't already, please take the time now to RSVP, it's a painless process I promise and the best part is you can print your tickets and hang them on your fridge as a reminder not to miss it! :)
Quick walk-thru:
Click the link for the Rally you plan to attend (above) then where it says ticket information, select the number coming before clicking "register". On the registration page it will ask you for your first name, last name, and Email Address. Once you have filled that out click complete registration and it should send you a confirmation email with your "tickets".
That's it! :)

Alright, the votes are in and the results are as follows:

I know it wasn't listed as a location in the survey, however, there were equal votes for Kearney SRA & Mormon Island SRA (and a couple of people who said either would be fine here in the forum) so I thought the best compromise was this, as it is between the two.

The EAST Rally will be held on May 14th @ 1pm at Eugene T. Mahoney SRA - Ashland, NE 68003.

SparkPeople has officially removed the SparkRally Planning function at the state level due to lack of use, due to this I have found an outside site that will allow us to continue RSVPing as before. I am sorry for all of the changes in the system this year, Thanks for your patience and understanding as we work out the bugs.

We will be gone April 20-30 but so far nothing firm for memorial week end or July 4th. Have a poker run first week end in June in North Platte, A nurses meeting in Lincoln, June 10th, ATV Jamboree in Genoa June 10-12, Nebraskaland Days June 18-19, and another motorcycle weekend in Lexington, June 25-26 I think so June is pretty much gone. but would try to get where ever it is when it is if at all possible. Anyplace from Kearney east is fine. Fort Kearney is a nice area. Haven't done any camping in Grand Island or east except for Genoa. They have some camping places at the park in Genoa if you're interested. I like Mahoney too but it is a ways to travel. Thanks for trying.

I put down in the survey that I would prefer Ft Kearney but really Grand Island works too. I prefer the Sat before Easter. I'm pretty sure that I could make Memorial weekend work also.

Okay, I am trying to make the reservations for this year's rallies. So I need your feedback on locations and dates/times. Below is a link for a poll site for you to submit your vote. The SparkPeople Page changes that occurred in January have temporarily eliminated the SparkRally Planning function so we will have to do this the old way until they fix it...

I would also like to be clear that if we cant get at least 4 attendees for the west/central rally this year (not counting my family) that we MAY not hold this rally. I apologize for this, but we have never had more than one attendee at the west rally in the past, so PLEASE plan to attend the rally and show your support for one another.

www.surveymonkey.com/s/VW9FDSB

ALL votes must be in by 11:59pm CST on SUNDAY, March 6th. I realize that this doesn't give you a lot of time to vote, but I need to start making reservations. So please, vote right away! Thanks.

Since I am new to this, I really like the sound of a rally. People who all have the dame type of goal getting together. Kearney would be great, but could go elsewhere if I needed to. Can't eait to here more.

We're going to have a great raffle prize at the EAST Rally this year (we have not had enough attendees to do this at the West/Central Rally yet, Sorry).

If you win you get a month of boot-camp classes at Capital City Fitness Boot Camps (up to a $279 value). Classes are held in Lincoln at Pioneers Gymnastics (75th and Pioneers) and Central Lincoln (43rd and O Street). The expert instructors at Capital City Fitness Boot Camps banish love handles, muffin tops, thunder thighs, and spare tires to a desolate island with a constantly changing series of heart-pumping workouts. During your 45-minute express fat-burning workouts, you will receive lots of personal attention due to the small class sizes of just 12 to 20 campers. All new members receive a grocery store tour, nutrition seminar, and the opportunity to donate their dessert stomach to science. Reviews KOLN/KGIN Lincoln featured Capital City Fitness Boot Camps as a business that has been helping Lincolnites reach their fitness goals. Capital City Fitness Boot Camps have more than 300 fans on Facebook. THE FINE PRINT Expires Jul 26,2011 Limit 5 sessions per week.

Kearney was where we tried to have it a few years back, but it was canceled that year...

I'm not sure how far 'west' you want to go or if it would be more 'central', but Kearney has a wonderful paved hike/bike trail from the Archway to Cottonmill Park. It's eight miles long, but Yanney is about halfway (I think) so that wouldn't be so bad. As far as camping goes, there is Kearny State Historical and I'm pretty sure they have trails there too. Just a thought :)

The locations have not yet been determined. Most likely the East one will be at Mahoney again, as that seems to work well for everyone.
The West one will probably depend on my funds and available time to determine the location. I was thinking if we had it the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend then my husband wouldnt have to take time off (which would be nice) but I know many people make plans for memorial day weekend... we'll have to see what we can come up with.

Thanks! I would most definately bring my kids! LAst summer was the first time we had been camping (for the kids, anyway) and they loved it! On second thought, though, it might be nice to get away for some "me" time, too. We'll see. Do you know where the west one will be this year?

The May 28th or June 4th dates. Not sure yet which it would be... if you have a preference, just post it, as nothing is set yet. I usually get in touch with the site owners around the beginning of March.

I also have 4 kids, we turn the whole trip into a "fun family event" by camping. We enjoy the rally, but for them its the campfires, cookouts, etc that get them excited... feel free to bring your kids along, they'd have others to play with :)

Hey, thank for your quick reply. I knew it was a long shot getting it out here, and you are correct in your reply. I don't think there would be a very good turn out if we were out here, for all the reasons you mentioned. I also don't think there is but a few "sparkers" out here. Which date is the one for the west rally? Maybe I can plan far enough in advance and be able to get there this year. I am recently divorced with 4 kids and working full time now (but, at least I don't need his permission to go this year, yay!). And, no I don't think you're selfish, just practical...and I also had to "toot the horn" for Scottsbluff/Gering by asking. Thanks, again, for your feedback. I totally understand where you are coming from (literally!). Have a great day!!

As I stated last year, that may be too long of a drive for me to host. Consider it selfish of me if you wish, but to host a rally I must come up with: the money for the rental of a space, the prizes/giveaways, the food/drink that we provide, the paper/plastic wares, the gas to the place in question, the camp fees (for distances such as the one proposed), the food for my family while camping as well as other essentials, and then the time for arranging it, setting it up, taking it down, and running it. Often this involves having to take at least a day off of work for my husband.

Please understand that I do not wish to alienate any team members and a compromise is to meet halfway.
I wholeheartedly encourage anyone having to make a long trip for the rally to camp alongside us (I usually post which campground we will be at, and if I forget, just ask). We can enjoy evening cocoa or play cards or something during the time we aren't "rallying".

If you wish to host a rally there, I would be more than willing to help you organize it, but as I recall, you did not wish to do so the last time I suggested it. I WILL take into consideration your request (and if there are others who know they would attend at that location, NOW is the time to speak up) but I cannot promise that funding will allow me to do it.

Currently the (VERY) tentative dates for the rallies are Saturday, May 14th & Saturday, May 28th or Saturday, June 4th.

I was not able to attend last year because even the west location was too far for me. I would like to propose the west one this year out here in Scottsbluff/Gering, home of Miss America 2011!! We have the Scottsbluff Monument we can hike at, or the Wildcat Hills Nature Center (they also have areas for bbq and picnicing). I know it is a long drive for most folks, but it could be well worth the travel.
