TAC The Airstream Club Rally at Stone Mountain Park in Georgia April 27-29, 2012

John has asked me to help promote the TAC Rally for Spring of 2012. In order to preserve the $49.00 special rally rate, free entrance to the park instead of $10.00 per car fee, plus a second day Adventure pass free with the purchase of the one day pass, we need to make our reservations soon. Stone Mountain has saved a group of 30 purple premium sites for us, but can only hold them for so long. March 21,2012 is the date when they will release the sites to the general public. The phone number is 770-498-5710 and ask for Darlene. Even the 10 extra sites that were added in the orange loop have now been sold out. Two Motorhome only sites may still be available in the Purple Loop.Thank you for such a great response to this TAC Rally.

http://hfeimages.aristotle.net/General/SMP/Maps%20-%20Campground%202011REV.pdf  The purple premium loop encircling the playground, swimming pool, volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and LeWallen pavilion, usually costs $57.00 per site. Water, electric, sewer, cable, WIFI, picnic table, grill and firepit are all included in the price. Special activities are scheduled for the campers that change throughout the year. A Shuttle from the campground to the Laser Show will be available. A Non Denominational Church Service at 9:00-10:00 on Sunday at the LeWallen Pavillion will also be available.

Schedule of Activities:
For those arriving on Thursday let's plan on a climb the rock right after lunch. Then you have the option of climbing back down the rock or taking the cable car down and walking back to your vehicle. The rock is easy to climb, just a scramble but wear good shoes and take some water. Later that afternoon there will be an easy paddle around Stone Mt. Lake for those who have kayaks or canoes. We will just meander around looking at whatever there is to see. Make sure you have and use your personal flotation device (PFD) and other safety equipment. Thursday evening a group is also getting together to car pool to the German restaurant in downtown Stone Mountain for dinner.

Confirmed that the Pavilion, in our reserved loop, is available for our use at these times. The pavilion is open air, seats 200 people, has plenty of electrical outlets but no bathrooms. The centrally located loop bathhouse, will have to do.

Activities for Friday=A "Tour of Trailers" was requested for Friday from 4:00- 5:45 followed by the "Meet and Greet" at the Picnic Pavilion at 6:00 PM.Bring an Appetizer to share plus bring your own drinks.The Airstream Rock Band Members might be playing afterwards or Karaoke.
Activities for Saturday="Tour of Trailers" from 10:00 on. Covered Dish Pot-Luck Dinner at the Pavilion at 4:00 PM. The laser show starts at 9:00 PM with a shuttle bus provided from the campground.
Sunday= Nondenominational Church service at the Picnic Pavilion followed by Brunch. Bring a Breakfast type item to share.Times will be posted once we know the anticipated church service length. Service 9:00 AM -10:00 AM Brunch at 10:30 AM. Even though the check out time is 12:00, I was assured we would not be rushed and can take the necessary time to enjoy our brunch.

Update: The $10.00 gate entrance fee has now been waved for your first vehicle, but not for your second vehicle if arriving separately. It will be a one time fee for the entire stay of the second vehicle at the campground. Check in time for your campsite is 2:00 PM, however check with the office because if the site is unoccupied you can arrive earlier.

On the day of arrival, have a card printed with your Forum name displayed in the corner of the driver's side windshield. This will notify the park entrance gate employee to wave your $10.00 gate fee. Once you register at the campground, they will give you an official tag to be used for the rest of your stay.
