Looks good but you DO have to schedule some time to go to the bathroom....

Your schedule actually looks preaty good! I'd be up for either a guided hike or on my own before lunch Saturday.

With this many units, Saturday night dinner probably needs a little organization. Heck, I'll eat anything, but probably want to avoid 20 fruit salads! I'm actually kinda new at the rally thing, maybe this is a non-issue.

Let me throw another idea out.....

My family just invested in a Nikon D90, (I spent almost as much on the camera as my trailer ). I'm planning on taking a ton of photos!

Would anybody care to participate in a casual digital photo contest? I can bring down my projector & screen. I can collect all the images at dinner and have them run till bedtime. I'll collect votes and provide prizes during breakfast.

Since I mentioned breakfast, Dave & Rhonda really put on a great breakfast at our last rally........

Amy and I host several rallies each yea so Just adding my own thoughts here. . We traditionally have had a potluck on Friday night, and trailer tours on Saturday. We have had some Cook-offs, and it is held in the evening of the last night. Our rallies are only Fri-Sat so the addition of Thursday makes it a little more difficult.

We are staying at Alumatube's on Thursday, and aren't scheduled to hit the rally till Friday, but it will be early enough a potluck is a good plan. If most everyone will be there by Friday night, I think a potluck is the way to go Friday night.

As for the cook-off, you need to decide what it will be, and figure out if enough people will participate in that. In our cook-offs, most people bring the left overs from the potluck to dinner.

Other than the evening events of Fri and Saturday, we look to do some fishing (If warm enough), and spending time with friends.

Steve

Hey y'all
Been following this proposed rally since it was first mentioned, and wow, what a wonderful idea. I've never attended a rally and this will be our first. Looking forward to meeting other alum freaks. We are from Southern Indiana, right across the river from Louisville and have decided to explore the parks of Kentuck, so what a marvelous time to start.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

The way we have done it up here in the great white north is normally Friday night (arrivals) weenies and beenies followed by cocktails
Saturday afternoon is open house accompanied by cocktails
Saturday night is pot-luck follwed by campire and...you guessed it Cocktails
Sunday asprin, breakfast, breakcamp.

Just a thought, I wasn't trying to impose the northern way of thinking on anybody.

Digger,
It looks like several of us will be arriving late on Thursday, so it might be better to hold off on the festivities until Friday. A potluck to meet and greet would be great for Friday night. 94tri is bringing his projector so maybe a movie Friday night (with smores of course). I'm not sure about Saturday but I sure would like to see some other streams since I've only seen 2 in the last 8 months.... No matter what just getting to spend some time with like minded individuals can only be great. I also like drag'nwagon's idea, cocktails,cocktails, cocktails!

It will likely be a two hour drive from Alumatube's to the rally for us, so expect us in the late morning (Right when your hangovers are ramping up).

That's close to how it is typically done in the Southeast as well...at least the ones we have attended. Friday is eat at a local eatery or on your own and set up camp as many come in after work. Saturday is show and tell and pot-luck with Sunday break camp and go home.

Since a lot of this crowd is coming in early and has a decent drive home, that may use some adjusting though. All depends on the crowd.

Updated Map

Here's an updated park map. We have a couple of spots that are reserved, but without names Please let us know if one is yours! If you want to remain private, then let me know that also (if you want), and I'll just drop a trailer on the site.

This is gonna be a sea of silver!

We look nearly full! Looks like I may have a "white cap" next to me, but we've been known to make converts of of some of 'em.

Digger, I'll probably be coming in on Wednesday too, possibly sooner if I don't have to return to Chattanooga after the CBR. I'll have to think yet on what to cook for potluck.
