    The SOITC Eastern Rally of 2023 will be on Cape Hatteras which lies in the chain of long, thin barrier islands of the Outer Banks, which arch out into the Atlantic Ocean away from the U.S. mainland, then back toward the mainland, creating lagoons and estuaries sheltered from the Atlantic Ocean. It is the site where the two great basins of the East Coast meet.

    For thousands of years, these barrier islands have survived onslaughts of wind and sea. Long stretches of beach, sand dunes, marshes, and maritime forests create a unique environment where wind and waves shape the topography. A large area of the Outer Banks is part of a National Park, called the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.The Outer Banks is well known for its Lighthouses, the Wright Brother’s Memorial and Blackbeard the Pirate among other facts and lore.

    Camp Hatteras RV Resort and Campground is located on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are surrounded by two bodies of water, the Pamlico Sound and the Atlantic Ocean, which is why they say, “Life on a Sandbar”.

    After registering here, please make reservations for your campsite directly with the Campground at:  252-987-2777 ext 105.  Ask for Jen. Identify that you are joining the SOITC Rally! Many people are arriving on April 15, however activities start on April 17. Most SOITC members will be on the Sound ($72/night), but Sound Front ($97/night) and Ocean Front sites are available at a slightly higher price.

    Ocean Front Sites:

    Sound Front Sites:

    Our campground sits on 50 acres with Oceanfront and Soundfront accommodations including RV and Tent Sites. Camp Hatteras is located at Milepost 40.5 on NC12 between Rodanthe and Waves. We are approximately 24 miles South of Nags Head and 35 miles North of the Village of Hatteras and the Ferry Docks to Ocracoke.

    SOITC has arranged a Pre-Rally Event at the Blue Gate Restaurant and Theatre in Shipshewana, Indiana!

    For our new Rally attendees or those not familiar with the Blue Gate Restaurant and Theater, please visit the following web site for information about offerings at the Blue Gate or click on the adjacent logo!

    On Saturday evening, the evening prior to official opening of the rally, we have arranged for special pricing and seating for SOITC guests.  The event includes an incredible buffet dinner and the theatrical production of Dear Soldier Boy. 

    The Buffet

    The food is everything you expect from an Amish home-style restaurant. We recommend starting with dessert!

    The buffet features Chicken, Smoked Ham, Shrimp, Meatloaf, Roasted Turkey, Roast Beef and other Homestyle Amish Entrees. Enjoy many of your favorite homemade sides like Mashed Potatoes, Chicken Dressing, Homemade Noodles, Macaroni and Cheese, Green Beans, Corn, a soup & salad bar, as well as a large dessert bar. Plus, many other delicious made from scratch family recipes to choose from! 

    The Story

    It's 1990 and Iraq has just invaded Kuwait. Anna King knows that war is contrary to her Amish ways and figures her father might not approve of her getting involved in any way. Yet, wanting to do something to help America's troops, Anna and her feisty friend Sofia volunteer to write letters of encouragement to the men who are deployed into the conflict. Anna just wants to be a blessing... Sofia just wants to find a husband. What could possibly go wrong with such a pure and noble mission?

    It turns out plenty! Especially when all these lonely pen pals happen to get a weekend pass to surprise the girls, and end up arriving at Fern's Cheese Shop where the two girls work - on the very same day!

    Will Anna's father find out about her secret mission? Will Sofia finally find a husband? Will true romance be in the air for Anna (or is it just the Limburger cheese?)

    Come watch the drama unfold at Blue Gate Musical's hilarious new show, Dear Soldier Boy, written by Martha Bolton, with original songs composed by Wally Nason.

    The SOITC International Rally returns to Elkhart, Indiana, on June 18 - 24, 2023.

    We will kick off the rally with a catered dinner on Sunday evening, June 18. Seminars and SOITC meetings will be held on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday will be set aside to enjoy the sites and activities of the area. Wrap-up meetings and the bon voyage party on Friday evening will wrap up an exciting week! Vendors will be available all week at the rally to answer questions and show new DRV rigs. Lazy Days RV will be the Host Dealer!

    We are planning lots of great activities; some we have had during previous rallies and some will be new. You can come early and/or stay longer if your plans allow.

    We are planning a pre-rally event at the Blue Gate Restaurant and Theater on Saturday evening June 17. For more information and to register click here.

    Check out the local activities with the Elkhart Visitors Guide. A little further drive will get you to the activities in the South Bend area, Here's their visitor's guide. A little further away are the beaches of Lake Michigan which are especially welcome on hot days! A little further are the museums of Chicago, the Dutch heritage experience in Holland, Michigan and the museums in Grand Rapids.

    Elkhart has many great advantages as a rally site. As the corporate home of DRV and other suppliers for our rigs, the rally is a great opportunity to schedule warranty work or other service by the experts. it is a central location, so travel costs are reasonable.

    The Elkhart Campground is our host for the week.  Reservations for the campground are not required. Simply put your arrival and departure dates on your SOITC reservation and we will communicate with the campground. Fees will be $45/night + taxes and due to the campground at the time of the rally. For information, the campground website is www.elkhartcampground.com   The campground suggests that if you wish to camp next to a friend, you should plan to arrive at the campground together.

    Rally fees are $400 for member couples and include 6 breakfasts and 3 catered dinners per person. Rates for non-members and singles are detailed on the registration form. We are planning additional meals that will be paid for by vendors or will be potluck. All DRV owners are welcome to join us, whether SOITC members or not!

    We look forward to seeing our friends from the past and especially looking forward to meeting new ones.
