2008 Non-Rally at The Cove (first weekend in October)
« on: July 09, 2008, 09:33:59 AM »
The October (3rd - 5th) 2008 Non-Rally in the mountains of South Carolina at Palmetto Cove.

http://www.palmettocove.com/


I have reserved space at the park from September 29th thru October 5th.

Since I have to work, I’m planning on being there Friday afternoon, but early arrivals are fine.  ;D

No reservations required (because they do not take them!)
$20(tax included) per night full hookups. (30Amp, water & sewer)
You must be fully self contained (shower, toilet, & kitchen) per state health department rules since there are no bath houses there.

Last year, we parked close to the road & it worked out well. There is a nice area close to road on the far right (as you enter the park) that worked well for a gathering spot & we can set up some canopies there.

 

There is no rally fee.  :o ;D  8)  There will be a donation pot for those who wish to help offset the cost of the meals.



The Non-Schedule:
(subject to change, so stay tuned  ;D )

I’m going to try to have something (maybe baked spaghetti or lasagne ? ? ) for Friday night dinner & keep it warm for the late arrivals.

For Saturday night, I’ll bring the pulled BBQ & we can have a “pot luck” meal.

For lunch, I was thinking burgers & such & grilling on a large charcoal grill.

For breakfast – you’re on your own!



Please post to share ideas, opinions, suggestions & if you can make it. If I can get an idea of how many are attending, I will know how much BBQ & such to bring.

Anyone have a canopy to bring & share?

Those with musical talents are encouraged to share.  8)

THANKS

Why not? Bashing & quibbling get higher ratings!  ;D  8)  ::)

Sorry for the confusion, to clarify, this is a RALLY PARK & while you can't reserve an individual camping spot, you can reserve space for a rally, & by so doing, we will get to have exclusive use of the shelter one night & the hall the other night.  ;D

As for the canopy size needed, I don't know  :o , but I think we can use almost any size, although a couple of 20' x 40' might be a bit much to ask for tho.  ;D

Well, I ain't Kyle, but there were quite a few kids there last October.  Gary just didn't take their  pics... ;)
Just let'em go out and play with the other wannabee adults.    If your kids actually go outside and play...there will other children there with other campers and busnuts at the park.  Bring their bicycles.  I don't believe children on motorized toys would be especially welcomed by the park.   
When I was just a little chitlin...the mountains wasn't my favorite destination...gimmie the beach!   Now that I'm a curmudgeon geezer, I love the mountains!   
There's a really cool rapids flowing at the back of the park...kids love that.  See the rapids (and other CG info) at:  http://www.palmettocove.com/    Their web site may help with your questions. 
There were a lot of pets there too!  Gary took their pics....Breck's children even had a ferret thingy on a leash.  That was interesting.    ;D
You're at the edge of the mountains...only 20 miles from Brevard.  There are a lot of things to do if you want to drive around a little.  We're going to run out for a few mid-day Saturday.  I'm gonna go find some bluegrass pickers for Sat evening!  Yee haw!  :D
See ya there, JR

What age are your kids? My kids are 11 & 14. They will be there & hoping to have others to play with.  ;D

They didn't get bored last year. There is a river to play in & woods to stomp in & a nice area to ride bikes - they just have to remember to keep it slow so as to not run anyone over.  :o  (& mine must have a helmet to ride)



Maybe someone has a craft or activity to share with the kids?

Dallas and I are hoping things work out for us to make it for this one.

Carolinaboy, your kids will love Kyles kids. They are really neat and I think they are actually adults in kids bodies.  If Kyles nieces get to go they are younger and super sweet.  This is also a place where the kids can have fun without having to have someone guarding them like at some campgrounds. 

Hope to get to see you there!

Thanks Cat, but ALL the kids there were GREAT!

Here is a picture of some of the kids there last July.
Sorry, I couldn't find one from the October non-rally.

Sorry, wasn't trying to slight anyone. I just don't know who else will be there with kids but I know your kids will be.  You are right, all that bunch was terrific.

Hey Ed,
GREAT! Thanks for the offer! Pulled pork will be awesome!
I don't know how much we need. I try to over plan so we don't run out during the meal.  :o
The leftovers are sure good Sunday for lunch.  8)

I'm thinking at least 50 .  .  .  .
We can work out all the details & can get a better idea early September of who all is going to be there.  ;D
