SPRINGSTREAM in North Georgia

Too early to reserve sites, but we are planning our semi-annual Rally, this one will be APRIL 9 weekend at Georgia Mountain Fair Campground on Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee, GA.

After 16 or more Rally's we are getting the hang of it!! .. ..sharing info, food and drink, and a little live music...

There is more information at :

SPRINGSTREAM in N Georgia 2010 Rally

Got it on the calendar and will be ready to reserve come January 1. Glad we are having it in April again. It really bummed me out to not be able to attend last spring. I really don't know how they can expect me to work when an Airstream Rally is happening!

The date worked out well for April, hopefully the weather will do so also.
I will let you all know when they open up the reservations.
These have been the first Rally for many folks so we welcome all newbies! Its a "have fun and relax" weekend.

I just got word that Bad Company will be at the Fairgrounds JAN 30 in concert..the original guys including Paul Rogers, arguably one of the all time best rock singers...who was recently on tour with Queen.
I am going to try my best to be there, and stay overnight if at all possible.....

Don't think I will be able to get there from here still. Hoping they have the River Road opened back up by April! This would be a good concert to see. I'll have to keep an eye on that road!

Just waiting on our finalized forensics and rowing schedules.
Overlapping competitive seasons put a crimp on camping.

Yep, Tommy and I bought a 1995 Land Yacht Moho. It is currently in Maryland at a friends house. We are going to get it on Jan. 2. Haven't even seen it, but Jack says it is nice and that we got a great deal on it. It has even helped them with the blizzard that came through a few days ago. The generator works, so they would have heat if they lost electricity. I don't think they did, but they were glad to have it in the driveway. Always happy to help!

Ohio friends

Larry and I would love to put this one on our calendar for April. I went and looked at the map of the campground. What section will you all be signing up for? Let us know when we can reserve a spot. This sounds like fun. We are also signed up for the Dogwoods and Bluegrass Rally in KY which is the following weekend. Are any of you headed that direction from Springstream?

L&L,

Last SpringStream we had members in the B, C, D, E, and F loops of Area 2.


See you there,

Kevin

Howdy. I (Phil) am hoping to be able to have the "not really a band band" play during Sat afternoon/evening.

What kind of instrumentation are you able to lend a hand with? Altimeter? We did have a pilot... Wind speed? Barometer?

Oh, you mean musical instrument!!!! Bring it, please!

I plan on playing (guitar) again this Rally, and AlanSD (Alan) hopefully will play guitar, sing, and probably bring his PA too. NilesRob (Brad) is a drummer/percussionist, PizzaChop (Ron) is a guitar/bass/vocals guy, ColdEspresso (Mario) plays guitar too when he can be there. Anyone else is invited to join, and we sometimes have percussion instruments to share. We have no keyboard players that have stepped forward.

I'm excited about Springstream, and Sue and I are getting things lined up to leave Thursday for the CanOpener Rally in Destin, FL.

Phil

We've RSVP'ed on the thread. One of us has trouble walking. Which loop is best for site reservation where we would be close to the activities? I'm not familiar with this park.

I would recommend anywhere in Area 2 EXCEPT the A loop. The area is pretty flat, but the A loop is hilly.

Truth be told!

The A sites are not as close to the water, if that's a factor for you.
