2010 NonRally at Palmetto Cove (upstate South Carolina)

Mark your calendars
October 4th thru 10th (early arrival & staying later is welcome)
No reservations taken (will be easier to plan if you post your intentions here tho . . . )
No rally fee, just the ~$22/night campground fee that includes full hookups (elec, water, & sewer).
For meals, we will continue with the modified potluck - I'll have the main dish & everyone brings a side or a donation.

Theme is same as always  -- Eat & Greet

http://www.palmettocove.com/


Tentative Schedule:

Monday thru Friday noon - Wing it - depending on who is there & what 'we' want to do. There are many hiking trails & waterfalls in the area.
To see some of what is available:
http://www.sctrails.net/trails/MAPS/SCmap.html
(The Cove is in North West Greenville County & close to Northern Pickens county.)

Friday (10-9)
Supper - spaghetti

Saturday (10-10)
Breakfast -
Lunch - hot dogs & hamburgers
Supper - BBQ

Sunday (10-11)
Breakfast - biscuits & gravy, pastries
Lunch - leftovers

Post ideas & suggestions for the meals
Post your intentions & what you wish to bring. . . .  


I’ll need help with the meals – so please post or PM me so I can know what is covered. Some of the things needed:
Setting up chairs & tables
Preparing the meal
Serving
Clean up
Signing up to help only means working with what is already there, you won't have to buy anything, just grab a few friends to make sure things are ready when needed.

In the past, it's been a great way to socialize while making sure the meals are on time.

Bring your own plates, utensils, napkins, drinks & etc for meals.

This is a GREAT rally.  We always do both (bring a side AND a donation) Still by far the cheapest rally you will ever attend.  Jack

It's a good thing you don't always get what you pay for.  ;D  ;D  ;D

For those that don't know, Jack & Paula attended the first non rally & were kind enough to offer the benefit of their experiences with hosting rallys.

Then there is Ed & Ann Galant - always there in the background helping out in ways I never knew - until afterwards.

There are many others who help out so much, it is the people attending that make this rally a success.

I'm so looking forward to it!

Jack there used to be a cheaper one in W. TN but we lost that property to I-69 ;(
there were no Rally fees or camping fees. (But we didn't have very nice parking places or facilities either)
But we didn't charge for the wrecker service either ;)

Kyle I hear your rally's are an exceptional bargain. I hope someday in the near future to be able to start a tin tent project so's I can come see for myself!

Gary,
   If neccessary, we can run over to your place and drive you motorhome to the Cove. I hope your back is good enough to do some kayaking at the cove or from your place after the rally.  Jack

Jack,
I will keep you informed of my progress, thanks so much for the offer I know I can depend upon you and Paula for anything.  You see, that is what I am talking about or families here on these bb'ds!!  Jack is great man and has a wonderful wife.

As far as the kyaking, I do so hope I can do this, I will try if I do not get worse as now, If I have to I will use frogman flippers to paddle with.  LOL

Per Streets & Trips, From Knoxville 161 miles, from Atlanta 165 miles.  Coming from Atlanta will involve less grades.  Jack
