  • Adam's 2017 NROA Rally - La Grande, Oregon - June 20th - June 25th

    The format for the rally is always the same on the date - rally is first Tuesday following Fathers day which this year is Tuesday June 20th - Sunday June 25th.

    The rally is not about getting your unit fixed by Northwood- that should be done at your local dealer before you head out. If you really need Northwood to fix something then you need to schedule far in advance as they have limited time slots available during the rally. Also Northwood no longer has the personnel available to come out to the park and fix things for you so do not count on it happening.

    We will be gathering at Grande Hot Springs Resort (formally Eagles Hot Lake RV Park) Their contact # (541) 963-5253 and they will start taking your reservation after Jan 1. Contact them directly to make arrangement for a site. When you make your reservations make sure you tell them you are with the "Northwood Rv Owners Association" and are attending the 2017 rally. AARP, AAA or Good Sam discounts available. There is space for 75 units and it's a first come first serve so get your forms into me early.

    As of 06/15/07 there are still three spots open due to cancellations.

    Please read below

    Once I start taking sign ups for the rally(after January 1st 2017)The park will hold your spot for 30 day but if I do not have your form in my hand within that time period the site reservation will be cancelled and available for the next person who calls. So make sure once your get that site reserved you get that sign up form to me.

    Directions to the RV park from La Grande:
    Exit #265 off of highway 84 by flying J station
    At the stop sign at the bottom of the exit ramp turn right(south) onto 203 for 5-7 miles. RV Park is on right down short 1/4 mile gravel road.


    Early bird Activities for Monday.

    Monday - 19th
    10:00am . This years ride will be depending on snow melt off. Having gotten a nice snow pack this year and uncertain when it will melt back enough to allow me to find a new trail will be key in where we end up. Planning on heading to the same area that can accommodate motorcycles, 4 wheelers & side by sides under 50" as last year up Lad Canyon. We will line up at the fountain by the main office just before time to head out.
    If you don't have a ATV permit you will need to get one. If you have one from another state then you may not need to get one for Oregon. Click on this link and see if the state of Oregon honors it.
    http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/ATV/Pages/Permits.aspx
    Also Oregon has a Safety card that is required - not sure it this applies to out of state persons. The info in at this link
    http://www.rideatvoregon.org/index.c...59C788DDB537D6

    If your current permit is not honored by the state of Oregon you just need to have your vin # and stop by AC Power Motor sports (next to Thunder RV & Walmart) 10701 WALTON RD, LA GRANDE, OR 97850 | (541) 663-1111 and pick one up. They are $10.50 and good for two years.

    6:00pm - Dinner at Mamacita’s (kinda like a Denny's) - If you are showing up make sure you make reservations through me by replying to the email I sent or just email me nroa2003@yahoo.com with names so I can keep count. There is limited space so its first come first serve via signing up with me.

              The 2016 rally was our first and we had a blast!

              Grande Hot Springs RV Park was wonderful and everybody was so nice. We kept busy by taking part in almost every seminar and event. Adam worked hard and the rally ran like a well oiled ship.

              Suggestion: If you can swing it, get there a few days before the rally starts. Lots of things to see in the area. Two things we would highly recommend:
              • Town of Pendleton and their famous underground tour
              • Hot Lake Springs Hotel (next to the park) and the tour of the hotel & old hospital

                  Linda...I looked at the site map. Do you have a suggestion on which area/sites to reserve?

                    Reservations will be available after Adam posts that they are open. The whole right side (as you look at the park map) is reserved--about 75 spaces.. Sometimes there is overflow into the other side if they have room. If you have a dog, especially one that needs exercise, the sites near the right end of the rows are good as it is grass all around. The rally centers around the recreation hall so if walking is a problem that is a consideration--it is near the left side of our area. For any other newbies, the link to the park is at the top of this forum page--Grande Hot Springs--they are advertisers here.

                      Haven't been to a Rally yet, but thinking of coming this year. I am not clear on the process to both get a site and an NROA sign up. Where do I get the forms you mentioned in this post, and do I get a site reservation first and then form? Or the other way around. Sorry, I'm a tad dense on this.

                      Thanks, TC

                        After sign up starts next week, I will post a link to the form that you can down load and mail in to me.


                        I get a site reservation first and then form?
                        You call the rv park and get a site first then fill out my rally form and mail it to me with your site # on it. The RV park will start accepting reservations for the rally on Jan 1st 2017. Remember its winter there so they run limited hours.

                            BTW... The link at the top of the NROA pages for Eagle Hot Lake Resort does not work. It directs you to a page that says the domain name is expired. To get to the Grande Hot Springs Resort page use...http://grandehotsprings.com/

                              Thanks for the heads up on the change to the parks name, they were going to change it last year so I posted the change but then they didn't so my post caused confusion. So same thing this year just in reverse! Anyway I have fixed it.
