From the good news-bad news department

The good news is that college I am wanting a job with has invited me out for a campus interview. The bad news is that I fly out of St Louis the monday morning following the rally. Between this and everything else going on (finishing the dissertation) it is begining to look doubtful as to if I will be able to make the rally . Hopefully as this week progresses something will break loose and I will be able to make it, but my optimism is waning........

Party pooper

We hate to be party poopers ourselves but we also will not be attending this coming weekend . We have a chance to take our grandson to the beach for a week during school break. Between school and every other weekend at his deadbeat dad's we don't get to see him that much so this is an opportunity that we can't pass up. Sorry for the change in plans, we were looking forward as we have not spent any time in LBL.

Ditto here. I was trying to coordinate things at work to enable this trip, but we're taking some new software live over that weekend so instead of camping at LBL I'll be hanging around a data center.

Guys if this thing falls apart I'd love to come on some other date. We've been down there many years ago, back in my tenting days and pop up camper days. We stayed at Piney campground so I'd love to go back to the area again. Unfortunately work prevents me for being there this time. It's not a bad drive from STL.

OK things are just NOT going to work for a Rally at this time. It is time to OFFICIALLY CANCEL IT. Maybe we can try again some other time. I really wanted to meet some of you in person and hope to still someday.

Lbl

Greg,
Like you, we would also like to meet other forum members besides visiting LBL for the first time. We could meet up the weekend of Mar 31 - Apr 2 if you'd like to give it another try. Being retired, we could go anytime of the week but I'm guessing more might be able to attend on a weekend. Let us know.
GreggH

Another try

I was going to make a reservation through Reservamerica for Hillmans Ferry for the weekend of Mar 31 for 2 nights but found that only about 20 or so sites are reservable and none are on the water. I phoned Hillmans Ferry COE park (270-362-8230) and was told the water sites are on a first come first serve basis. I asked about expected availability the weekend of Mar 31 - Apr 2 and the man said it might start to get crowded around that weekend, depending on spring break with local schools. He also said our chances of getting a water site would be better arriving on Thursday instead of Friday.
We are going to arrive on Thur Mar 30 and stay for the weekend. Hopefully others will be able to join us and we'll get to meet during the weekend. If anyone is interested in meeting up and arriving together, let us know.

I unfortunately have a commitment on that Saturday/Sunday so camping is out. I could very well drive over to meet with you on Thursday or Friday however as it is only 45 minutes or so from my house.

Greg,
That would be great. We'll be off the internet for a week starting tomorrow night. When we get back from Edisto we'll send an email with our cell phone # and you could give us a call when you're ready to come over to get our site number and set up a time. Maybe a little cookout could be possible. Keep us posted.
GreggH
