Alumalina 2024

I am happy to announce the kickoff of the 18th edition of Alumalina.

October 24-27, 2024

Camping World Rally Park 348 Resistoflex Road Marion NC


As always, 4 days of food, fun, fellowship, seminars, craft fair, flea market, beer swap, Bourbon Trail, Wine Tasting, happy hours, walking, talking, biking, hiking, paddling, picking, grinning, campfires, miles of aluminum and lots of paroozing, all with your like-minded friends.

No memberships required; everyone is welcome.

The Camping World Rally Park features over 300 full hook up sites in rally style parking on beautiful flat, mowed grass. Rally style parking means side by side, back end to back end, in rows, yet with ample room to deploy awnings and set up a very nice camp.

Every site has power, water, and sewer.

We also have a 13,000 square foot pavilion with kitchen, stage and a restroom. Plus, a bath house, more restrooms, handicap parking, a cafe’, walking trails along the Catawba River, restaurants nearby, and Camping World next door. All with lots of open green space for our 4-legged friends.

We have secured a special camping rate of $35/night, payable to Camping World of Marion with cash, check, or credit card. We are also asking for a $65 per adult rally fee to cover the food costs and a few other necessities, payable to Alumalina with check or cash. We will make every effort to have food suitable for everyone. Youngsters are always our guests.

****THERE IS NO NEED TO CALL THE PARK, NO NEED FOR A RESERVATION, we have the entire Rally Park reserved and we will have a site waiting for you.

We maintain a list of those coming for planning purposes only, so drop me a note or a PM, give me a call, send note on balloon or by carrier pigeon, smoke signal, note in a bottle, or simply post here to the thread if you can join us. I will add you to the list and you will be good to go.

Then, simply show up, pick a site, set up, then come pay up. We will greet you, help you check in, and provide a complete Rally Packet for you with all the info you will need for a fabulous rally. No one will be left guessing.

If it turns out you can’t make it, please let us know that as well. We will miss you and you will miss a great rally but there will be no need for a refund from us or the Park. We need an accurate head count for planning purposes.

All sites are the same, there is no pecking order, none are “saved”. Just come and have fun. To park with a friend please arrive with a friend. It will make it easier for everyone. Remember....WE ARE ALL FRIENDS.

Marion, NC is a beautiful small town of 8500 people located just off of I40 in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, “Where Mainstreet Meets the Mountains”.

The Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Mitchell, highest point east of the Mississippi, are just a short drive away. Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Hendersonville, and much more are just up the road.

You are more than welcome to come early or stay later, same camping rate applies. If you do, please check in at the Campground office across the street in the big building with the green roof and pay them for your site. Our special rally rate applies regardless of number of nights.

Thanks so much, you will like it!!!!

John and Susan

A lot to digest....

I have a list started and will post those names later. Not to worry, we have plenty of sites.

Expect the same format as always, it seems to not be broken so no need to fix anything.

If you are new to Alumalina or rallies in general, or have been with us many times, remember......we are all friends, we will take good care of you, and

You will like it.

John

John,

The anti-social folks of the two old guys and two trailers will be parked up on the end away from everyone as normal.

1. Pete D.
2. Paul W. (and maybe daugter Virginia)

Enjoy,
