Some of us pick guitars and other instruments...
Last time we had some great aluminum vintage boats that were brought and many got to ride on the lake on them, also canoes, etc.
No formal agendas, but we can have polishing demos, riveting demos, and share any info that is needed to help.
It is casual fun, and very addicting....I will be attending (I think) the 9th one of these, the location has moved, but seems everyone enjoyed Lake Chatuge so this our third one there.

Just booked C-4. Arriving on the 17th and departing on the 24th. The attached picture is a view of one of the campsites close to our area. I plan on bringing my fishing boat.

Camping-On the Lake?

Kathy (and others who may be reading), are you familiar with Carters Lake? There is a great looking campground on the North side off of GA 282/US 76 called Woodring.

"Woodring Branch Campground is located at Carters Lake in Georgia. Carters Lake is one of the most scenic lakes in the Southeast. Located at the southern end of the Blue Ridge Mountains, its sparkling waters and rugged shoreline provide a beautiful surrounding for a variety of recreational opportunities which include camping, picnicking, boating, fishing, hiking, hunting and mountain biking. Woodring Branch Campground has 42 sites, 31 with electric and water hookups and 11 tent sites. Additional amenities include hot showers, a dump station, laundry facilities, a boat ramp, a playground, and public phones."

We have looked at it and decided to use it if (when) we get our '73 together as a shakedown before North Georgia Fairgrounds. Here is a map showing the 2 camping areas. I couldn't find photos, but it is a really nice area.

Just a thought for sharing with you and others.

O.k. I'm in C-2 arriving on the 20th and departing on the 23rd. BTW that was the last waterfront lot! Not that it looks very far to the water from anywhere in the campground.

Glen, we'll be neighbors, I reserved C-1! Hope there are no ghost with that coach; maybe we'll have to sit around the campfire and tell some ghost stories in case there aren't.

Now Kathy/Alan, for those who haven't been to Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds and those of us who have started our senior moments already like me, IIRC, there are no picnic tables but there are fire rings, is this correct? Or is it the other way around?

Also, I just went to the rally calendar page and registered. There are only 4 other folks registered on the Forum's Rally Calendar page. I know there are more than that that are attending. Don't forget to go to the Rally Calendar and go to the month of April and sign in that you will be attending this rally so we will get a head count of attendees.

Here is a link to make it easier: http://www.airforums.com/forum...=2007-4-20&c=1

There are two other rallies that week end on the Forum's Rally Calendar so make sure you click on the right one.

Minnie's Mate, I know there are picnic tables and I think there are fire rings (or rocks in a circle might be more like it).

Thanks for the reminder to register on the rally site!

I'll Have to Pass

Hi group,
I can't make it to this one due to a previously scheduled event. Hopefully, I can make it to the Fall Rally or next event.

.
I have camped at Carters lake,,,The campgrounds there are closed from Nov to April as I recall.
It is another nice Corps of Engineers park, lacking only hiking trails, but has nice lake access, and good sites. It is only 30 miles from my home.
