Weston Bend State Park, northwest of Kansas City, was the site of Pod rallies in the past and will be again. Will you join us? The official Rally will be Thursday May 2 - Sunday May 5 but we plan to be there April 29 - May 6. Come when you can!

Weston Bend State Park sits high above the banks of the Missouri River, with hiking and bike trails with nice views.  Check it out: https://mostateparks.com/park/weston-bend-state-park

The Reservation Window is now open!  We are reserved in Site #18 (April 29-May 6) which will be Rally Central. The campground features about 35 wooded camp sites, most with electricity. Sites 4-25 have 30amp [#7 is the camp host]; sites 27-37 have 30/50 amps; and sites 1, 3 and 26 have no electricity. All are back-in sites except 11 which is a pull-through. Note also that sites 1 and 35 are "Family" sites which are connected single sites for double the cost. When you are in the reservation website, you can click each site to see its picture.

Water is available at three stations around the campground but not at each site. Dump station and nice shower/restroom facility available. (There is also one vault toilet building). Pets welcome. Picnic tables at the campsites have recently been refreshed with new wood! 2018 camping rates are $21/night; not sure about 2019. Those over 65 can get a slight $$ reduction. There are no park entrance fees.

Link to the campground map:

The historic small town of Weston is just down the road, and it is a delightful place to visit!
"The Best Small Town in Missouri." Tour wineries, a brewery, a distillery, a creamery and sheep dairy farm; shop nice galleries, boutiques, and antique stores; and dine at a variety of local restaurants. Check it out:  https://www.westonmo.com

This will be a pretty low-key Rally giving you plenty of time to relax, hike, have fun in Weston, or just get to know other Podders. We will have some pot-lucks and campfires, and details will be posted down the road.

One event we will plan for those who wish to participate, is a GIFT EXCHANGE. Bring a wrapped item (one per person or one per Pod) that represents something about your hometown, and is in the $10-15 range. Enclose a note with the item with your name, and explain how this relates to your hometown. This event will not be mandatory, and no need to sign up. Either bring something, or don't. 

Keep watching for updates, and post your questions here.

Great!  I saw that the site was booked and was hoping it was a Podder!  We now have 10, perhaps 12, Pod reservations and the booking window just opened.  There are two sites reserved in that area that I don't know who has reserved them.

We look forward to a fun time!

This is the campground reservation map which is live updated.  Most of the reserved sites (red circled) are known Podder reservations.  The ones I'm not sure about as of 11/14 are sites 4, 21, 22, 28, 29 and 30.  If anyone in this group has those reservations, please let me know.

We're so excited there are this many reservations at this point. Thumbs Up
