Your attendance at this rally is with the understanding that it is not sponsored by any person or organization. No monies are being collected for any events, and the responsibility for all expenses is borne by individual attendees. Likewise, all liability for any accidents, personal injuries, or damages (either at the rally site or while traveling to/from) is strictly the responsibility of individual attendees. In other words, this event is the same as if you were traveling/camping on your own, and happened to arrive at a campground where many other Airstreams were staying. Organizers/hosts are only acting in the capacity of “information providers” and “facilitators,” and will be held harmless from any damage claims resulting from your attendance.
__________________

I just found out the rally rate will apply for both two days before and two days afterward. Also, the shuttle is available from the campground only on those days when the Laser Spectacular in Mountainvision is on which will be on one of the nights we are there. Otherwise parking is free and readily available.

One more thought, grocery stores are hard to locate in the immediate vicinity of the park so load up before you enter the park. The campground store has limited supplies of necessities so you will want to bring what you need.

Stone Mt Park Rally 2012
 
On reservations, we have a cutoff date of March 21, 2012 in order to tie down the rate with free entry to the park. So all reserved spots not tied down by the cutoff date will be released to the general public at the normal rate with no free entry. Solution? Make sure you make your reservation before that date and the earlier the better.

The park also has very clean restrooms and a laundry facility if needed.

Sounds Like a Good Location
 
I know others who have stayed at Stone Mountain and thought it was a great place. We've been to the park several times and always had a good time. We're planning to see the laser show in the next few weeks and look forward to seeing it again if we attend the rally.

Thanks for organizing this. We'll keep the rally in mind.

P.S. After re-reading the first few posts I noticed the disclaimer in post # 2. I find this interesting. It's the second time I've seen this type of verbiage associated with a gathering of campers on this forum - maybe there have been more of these disclaimers and I haven't noticed them. Regardless, I suspect this does not really protect anyone and I don't think it will keep some suit-happy person from attempting to dig into somebody's pockets if they feel they've been wronged. I don't see the need for this type of disclaimer and I think it fosters the wrong environment among participants of Airforums.

Thanks for expressing your concerns regarding the big issue of rally liability but that needs to be under a separate thread all to itself so as to not detract from the rally posts for the 2012 Stone Mt. Rally. Thanks for expressing your support for the rally however and I hope to see you there.

That's good to know about the super Walmart. Never know when you might need a run to get something you simply missed. With the rally you get free entry in and out so that helps and this is not a major big event weekend so the traffic should not be lined up for miles.

Excellent!! May there be mucho aluminum present. Encourage your contacts to sign up. It's a good setup and everyone stays together. Even if you have stayed there before it's always fun. This will be like our third or fourth time at Stone Mt. Many don't realize there is such a nice place in the middle of Atlanta for RV and camping.

Just signed up! looks like fun!

I just called and got my reservations for Stone Mt rally. Looking forward to meeting new Airstreamer's . I don't know what the final results to the get together at Hawassee will be but I do hope if others decide to come to Stone Mt. That people would not mind having others look inside your unit to see how you have customized and get some new ideas. April in Georgia is a great time to camp regardless of where we meet. Looking forward to going to this new place for us. Also will be in site 158 if latter someone starts the map locator.

c_lewis77 08-10-2011 11:40 AM

I am in #165. I have been to stone mtn many times but not to the campground. Looking forward to meeting some fellow airstreamers!
