2017 NYC Base Camp


What follows is the flyer and coupon for the NYC Basecamp next June. Please note that there are now 7 sponsoring WBCCI Units and a limited number of spaces at the campground, so early registration is essential to secure your spot. The completed coupon and your cheque in US dollars should be received by Per Hamnqvist by the first week in December. The fees are outlined on the second page of the flyer. The basic fee of $320 US covers rally expenses and 3 nights camping.

Our plan is to meet at the Country Music Park in Cortland NY, on I-81 south of Syracuse on Wednesday afternoon, June 7 and travel to Liberty Harbor in groups on Thursday. If you haven’t traveled to the NYC area before, don’t worry – its easier than Toronto. Betty and I will take a 5 day reservation, to depart on June 13. If you want to take advantage of the pay for 6, stay for 7 deal, by all means do so and enjoy a few more days of the Big Apple.

Again, please register ASAP. I am attaching the current list so that you can see who is planning to attend. Please let me know by email how many days you plan to stay so that we can ensure enough sites are available after the Rally formally ends.

As we get closer to the dates, we can share plans/interests and coordinate some activities. Last time, we made a group reservation for a Broadway show and got a bit of a discount. As well, many in the group purchased a NY Pass, which gives access to the hop on – hop off bus tours and free access to some sites. Be aware also that some sites need booking WAY in advance, like the Statue of Liberty and the WTC Observation Deck. We can share info on these in the coming months.

OK, over to you! Registration is now open, first come first served.

Cheers, Kerry
