Rally 'round the Rock Region 3

The Region 3 Rally "Rally 'round the Rock" is being held April 23-28 at Stone Mountain, (Atlanta) Georgia. There are 150 sites reserved with about 100 already taken. Here is information about the rally. Note that to register, you just call the campground and they will do the registration as well as the campground reservation

Region 3’s "Rally Round the Rock" is coming to Atlanta’s Stone Mountain! Stone Mountain Park (www.stonemaountainpark.com) is a wonderful family park for all ages located to the east of Atlanta off of I-285. Some of the exciting park adventures include: the Summit Skyride - a high speed cable car that provides the rider with a stunning view of the Confederate Memorial Carving as it climbs to the top of Stone Mountain; the Scenic Railroad is a five mile excursion around the mountain in 1940’s open air rail cars; Ride the Ducks are 1940’s Army DUKWs converted into comfortable open air vehicles that will take to from land to water to land without getting your feet wet! Wandering around the grounds can lead to the grist mill, the covered bridge and the carillon that had been exhibited in the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City!
Make sure that April 23 to 28 is on your calendar to come to Region 3’s Rally. There are so many activities and attractions included in the registration fee for the entire family – duck boat ride; laser show with popcorn and soda; an Antebellum Plantation tour; an extra special ice cream social; fishing; and a live magician show! An optional event is the full day guided bus tour of Atlanta’s landmarks (Carter Library, Fox Theater, Margaret Mitchell House, High Museum) including a studio tour at CNN and a tour of the World of Coca-Cola. There will be City Passes available for admission to 5 additional attractions at a savings of 45% from the standard admission fees.
Discussions and seminars, Region business meeting, and GAMS to meet and greet of old and new friends are all scheduled to inform and entertain. Because of all the daytime activities that will be available, there will not be any nighttime entertainment. Instead, there will be GAMs around grills in the evenings or the opportunity to visit Atlanta’s fine restaurants on your own.
There are some very important decisions you must make before making reservations for one of the 150 sites that have been reserved for the Region 3 rally. Please read the fee notes carefully.
Dates: April 23 – 28
Fees: Rally Fee $55 per person over 15 years of age
Site with three point hookups: $49 per day for first three days, $45 for each additional day (If you are only coming for 2 days, the fee will be $45 each day but will not include the Premium Rally Package – duck boat tour, laser show seating, plantation tour.)
When calling the reservation line (1-800-385-9807 or 1-770-498-5710) you will need to have the following information available: 1) the dates you wish to attend, 2) any handicap provisions you require and 3) whether you are choosing to purchase tickets for the bus tour of Atlanta ( $60 per person).
Rally registration will close on April 2, 2013, but those needing handicapped spaces need to call by March 19, 2013. If you need to register after April 2, you will be put in unassigned locations closest to our rally facilities. All sites in the park have three point hookups.
In the event you must cancel: your request must be reviewed and approved by a member of the Region leadership team. The Park will not honor cancellations without Region 3 approval.
See you at the Rally Round the Rock!

Jay,
Thanks for posting the schedule. Annette and I are hoping we can make it but will not know until the end of next week. Hopefully, if we can, there will still be a site for us.
Looks fun,
Joe

We are heading home from a wonderful rally and we had great times with friends old and new. If you haven't been to a Wbcci rally you should absolutely try one!
