Call it 'Tennessee Truck Show.'

I'm looking for a trailer to put my truck on.

Just a bit south of Lebanon, there is a state park with excellent campground facilities. That's my home territory- - - - -went to high school in Wilson County Tennessee back in the 1960's, and Cedars of Lebanon state park was a favorite place to watch the "submarine races" on a summer night!

Edit: In addition to the campground, there are cabins available for rent, and a group lodge with kitchen facilities, a meeting room, and dormitory-style sleeping quarters for up to 80 people. That one might be reserved already if there's a big event like the Chevy show nearby, but smaller facilities might be available if reservations can be made soon.

So I was out racking the yard and running some ideas around in my head, I would like to have a name that says "Southern" but nothing outlandish. The idea is that if this comes together and we do meet up it could be something we do annually, maybe not the same location so others could attend. I like Jerry's idea about a local park or State Park. I thought that something like "Southeastern Stovebolt Jamboree", it says Southern and should not offend the masses. Any thoughts ????

I have a source for Tee shirts and even decals if we decide to go that far.

Just kidding about the name, but the Tennessee state park system has facilities at just about all of their locations adequate to host small to medium-sized gatherings. A lot of the parks statewide have excellent hotel and restaurant facilities, campgrounds, cabins capable of accommodating small groups, and outdoor pavilions or more formal indoor facilities for group meetings, etc. With a north/south distance of 100 miles or so, and an east/west span of close to 400 miles, the location is pretty centrally located to a lot of us southeastern bolters.

The state park locations are a great idea. The only problem I see with that is those of you wanting to camp is most TN campground spots are probably already booked. The Wilson co. fairgrounds where the Chevy/GMC truck show is can accomidate over 1000
campers. That's a bunch but thats what the website says. For more info search Wilson Co Fairgrounds. Lebanon also has many motels to choose from with reasonable rates. I attend several events there each year and this is a wonderful facility. I know I sound like I'm pushing for the lebanon location but anywhere is fine with me just want ya'll to be aware of the camping situation.

Update, there are pavilions at Cedars of Lebanon available for the weekend of July 9th and 10th, the rental fee is $62.00. The pavilions have BBQ grills and tables, restrooms and parking at each area. There is a max number of 50 persons and social distancing is recommended. I can book a pavilion for that Saturday if that day works better for those wanting to get together.

I would like to have count of sorts prior to making the reservation, if you are planning to join us please let me know. smile

I think its time I had better check in since I started this "Southern Stovebolters" thing a few years ago. I have had a tough time the past couple years but things are beginning to simmer down so I'm up for whatever is decided.

I have sent TUT a message and email and will help co-ordinate this anyway I can. I will try to find my email list of approx. over 100 Southern Bolters email addresses. A list of sorts always seems to work better for me as everyone reads their email but don't visit Stovebolt daily.

I'll see what I can do. Had problems with computer a while back and it won't seem to let me seen a big "group" email. I'll get my IT neighbor on it this weekend.

I'm still hoping to have "one more" here local but not sure yet. We do need to make plans though for a month/day and be ready if all goes well.....guess I better clean up the old 37.
