Folks, I sincerely apologize for taking so long in sign up information. Compton ridge recently had its' grand reooening after being bought by a Texas company. Apparently, the weekend discussed is considered a holiday because they hold their "Witchy Weekend" event that weekend. When we set the event that weekend, I was told that Witchy weekend was the weekend before and after.

The usual rates for holiday camping that weekend is cost prohibitive, but if we have at least 15 trailers reserve then we should receive a much lower price. Today in my conversation with them, the park wanted to know names of people who would be calling within a few days to reserve. They just want to ensure we can provide campers to take the spots they hold.

I told them I could think of 6-7 people that would likely reserve quickly to help them feel better about holding the spots for the group. Can I get some verbal shout outs on who can reserve within a week?

OK, so now we're on for October 24-26 at Compton Ridge rather than the last weekend of September at Acorn Acres, correct? Official?

How about Oct 24-26 at Acorn Acres? We can't make the last weekend of Sept.

Might check out Cooper Creek Campground on Lake Taneycomo that OKIEDEBI mentioned a while back. That looks interesting and trout fishing should be good. I know some of us like to fish

I can't believe this, I left a big long post last night regarding everything with the rally, and now it disappeared.

I have to apologize for taking so long to get everything set up with this event. The campground had its' grand reopening just this week, and things have been very hectic there. Apparently, the weekend we want to have the rally is also a holiday weekend for the park during their "witchy weekends". When I made the date reservation, I was told this was not the case. there is always a higher cost associated with having it during this holiday weekend at the park, but I was told we can like we have a significant discount by having at least 15 trailers.

Because the park doesn't want to hold 15 spots for us unless we can guarantee a large group, they asked me how many people would be willing to call and make a reservation within the first 48 to 72 hours of the reservation opening. I told him that I couldn't guarantee how many people would call, but i know us at least seven to eight a few that are interested in attending.

In regards to acorn acres, I contacted them several times but haven't gotten anywhere. They require $75 per day that we wish to use the rec room, there will be no discounting allowed. I also could never get ahold of the park owners, just their teenage children to work in the office. After asking for someone to call me back in management about the event several times, I've decided not to use them.

Coopers creek does not have a grouo meeting area...it may be pretty cold near November. Do we want to pursue that?
At this point I am running low on time to contact multiple parks, and try and make a deal with them. I started my new job in Branson this week, and will be very busy with everything going on with that.

Is everybody confident that we can get 15 trailers at minimum to show up to the Compton Ridge event if held on the 24th through 26th of October? sound off if you plan on being there, & I can try and give a better counted the park.

Steve

Does Cooper Creek have a campfire area? East enough to eat around the fire, particularly Chile, if it is not raining.

Sam, because of not having a large enough rec room or meeting room, and because of the time of year, I think Cooper Creek wouldn't be the best place for us. We have had rain several times at our fall rally so it might be best to have a room to gather. I think we should go with what Steve has proposed, I know it's hard to get all this nailed down, wanting to please most folks. We have always had more than 15 trailers, right? I would be willing to go ahead and make a reservation and if needed, I could cancel later if we won't be able to make it.
I think we may have made Acorn Acres upset with us for not coming back??...oh well, I've not been to Compton's Ridge so it sounds good!

Acorn acres was recently sold. Actually, the staff member that normally worked in the office has recently left as sge isn't gappy with the new owner's policies. Every time I called Acorn Acres, I got a teenager who couldn't answer my questions, and who twice told me she woukd have her parent call me back about the rally. After waiting ling enough, and seeing that they wouldn't reduce the rec room cost of $150 for the weekend, I decided against it.
