Alumalina 2018
OK it is: the long awaited, much anticipated, highly orchestrated, mostly overrated, barely sophisticated, definitely not regulated, new thread for our FALL 2018 ALUMALINA.

OCTOBER 25-28, 2018 in Marion, NC at the Tom Johnson Camping World Rally Park.

This is a new venue for us, the 4th facility since our humble beginnings 11 rallies ago. TJCW Rally Park has 300 FULL HOOK UP sites, another 100 with water/electric, all rally style parking on level, thick grass. No need to boondock here.

2 Bath houses, 12,000 square foot pavilion that will hold us all, huge fire pit with furnished firewood, playground for the youngsters, amphitheater, canoeing, kayaking on site in Catawba River with launch/take out docks, the Blue Ridge Mountains and Mt Mitchell an hour or less away, the town of Marion nearby with Lowes, Walmart, all the chain eateries, and a lovely downtown with all the local favorites. And Camping World next door.

Parking fee is $35 per night, paid upon arrival. You may come early and stay late, same rate. Our rally fee, still TBD, will be a bargain as always and also payable upon arrival.

I will be the keeper of the list, please post here on the thread as always to let us know you are coming. It is very important for planning purposes to know in advance. If you find your self needing to cancel, we will miss you and you will miss a great time but we need to know that as well. If you know of someone coming that does not do internet or Forums, please help them by forwarding their names.

I will start the new list with the names already listed on the 2107 thread ASAP. I only have 2 fingers for typing and they wear quickly.

We are absolutely thrilled about this new venue and all it has to offer; we are certain you will be also. We will of course be updating and adding info as we go along, but for now mark your calendar for another Alumalina family reunion.

You will like it.

...I should have included all that is necessary is to post here that you are coming, I will keep the list, collect the fees at the rally, and settle with the Park.

Mr. & Mrs. Sandlapper,

Please sign us up for the 2018 Edition of the Alumalina rally. This helps me with the logistics of moving the possum's from my retail sources in the northern Blue Ridge Mountains to the rally site. Marion, NC is about eighty miles closer to starting point thus saving us transportation cost.

Anne, Lilly(our Boykin Spaniel) and I will look forward to seeing different view of fall leaf show in the Carolina mountains.

See you down the road soon.

Remember we give a HOOT.

John & Anne

DLMueller 03-04-2018 07:17 PM

overlander63 03-04-2018 07:22 PM

John, I hope the rally is great, but we won't be able to make it.
