National Scotty Rally - East (2012)

Registrations have begun coming in for our 2012, eighth annual rally at Slippery Rock. Dates are firmed up, begins on Wednesday, July 4 and ends on Sunday, July 8. The campground has another event there ahead of us and has asked that we please not arrive early as they need the time to clean up after the 1500+ bikers. Our theme is already set as well, "Travel Right! Travel Light!! The Scotty Way!!!".

The Airstreamers will be there the same time as us, celebrating their third annual birthday (Wally Byam's) bash. Should be a lot of fun for everyone as we'll be looking to do some mingling of the two groups.

Scotty Restorations

The NSSO is very picky when it comes to recommending trailer restorers. Only two people have thus far earned our endorsement: Tom Bernot in Ford City (north of Pittsburgh), PA and new to receive our endorsement, Mark Denlinger in Akron (west of Philadelphia), PA.
