location-boxDespite the unusual snow storm last March — the largest in six years to hit the Delmarva Peninsula and the smaller turnout due to the storm — the officers and directors of  three sponsoring state campground associations have decided to return to Dover Downs in 2010 for the 19th annual Mid-Atlantic Campground Conference.
Conference planners Jay and Marji Otto, executive directors of the New Jersey Campground Owners Association, said the conference is scheduled for March 8-9, with the trade show day being Tuesday, March 8.
Dover Downs is delighted to have the conference return and has offered the same discounted package as this year’s conference, the Ottos reported in a news release.

Dover Downs is the host hotel for NASCAR’s Monster Mile racetrack and features harness racing in the off-season.

The Ottos surveyed attendees and received an overwhelming response to return to the Dover Downs Hotel in 2010.  The Ottos said that planning the conference will be easy since some of this year’s events had to be canceled due to the storm.

“We will just keep the same format for 2010 as was planned in 2009. Events will include a tour of the race track and a night at the races with a race named especially for the conference.  Some delegates may even wind up for photos in the winner’s circle,” they said.

The Mid-Atlantic Conference consists of the campground associations from Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. Typical attendance is between 70 and 80 people representing 35 to 40 campgrounds with a trade show of approximately 35 exhibitors.
