Craig, I really appreciate you taking the Lead on the First Annual, Stovebolt Southeastern Jamboree!
As of right now I plan on attending. The wife may even be with me? But with more than six months away, things could change.
I would like to see the event at the show grounds, with the show going on and maybe areas to camp, also hotels nearby.
We can make a weekend out of it. Kind of a mirror of the Stovebolt Reunion in KC every year.

Contacting the hosting club would be the first thing to do. Ask if we can park together? Camping arrangements? Can we have a Stovebolt flag and awning?
I would think that the hosting club already knows about the Stovebolt page and would welcome more entries.

Since We do not live in the southeast, I can only offer my thoughts. It is your event, so make it yours!

PM will be sent with some more of my thoughts on how to coordinate the event.

I'm about 75 miles from Lebanon. If I can help coordinate things, count me in. Did you check on cabin rentals? If a few of us could chip in on a cabin for the weekend, that would help with kitchen and shower facilities plus a place to hang out 24/7 for a couple of days. Beats a campground bath house!

Don, we can probably award you "Honorary Southeasterner" status, at least for a weekend!

Thanks for the support guys! John hurt my tender feelings with his quick reply. I cried for over an hour till my wife reminded me that The Grand Pooh Bear promoted me to
"Stovebolt Knight Commander, Midwest District". That made me feel better and my heart was happy again.

Back on topic, I plan on attending and will bring the Stovebolt flag, awning and Stovebolt 25th Anniversary stickers.

Some questions if we do the Jamboree at the show?
Can we park together and set up the Stovebolt awning for our HQ?
Can we use a small grill and do up some hotdogs for Alvin?
The show hosting club will need to answer these questions.

Craig, I'll send you a PM later with some more thoughts on getting the ball rolling.
Don

Sounds like a plan! I'm right at 60 miles from lebanon and I'll be glad to help anyway I can.

I checked on camp sites, the rates vary depending on the dates. For me, a 2 night camp site was $74.00, full hook ups. Cabin range between $129.00 - $250.00 per night and you will need to make reservations in advance. You may want to reserve your site early as the dates will no doubt fill up... I have sent an email to the local C10 Club asking about parking and site set-up at the event. I will pass on the info once I hear back from them. More to come.

My camping days are about over, especially since my 35 foot class A motorhome that my grandson was living in burned to the ground when his dog turned over a space heater one cold morning. No casualties- - - -even the dog survived, but the coach was a total loss. Anybody want to split the cost of a cabin, 2 or 3 ways for a couple of nights? That would drop the price to less than a decent motel room.

OK- - - - -2-bedroom cabins are available- - - -check in Friday 7/9, check out Sunday 7/11- - - -$336.00 total. Split 4 ways (bring a cot or sleeping bag) that's< $90.00 apiece for the weekend. If anybody's interested, I can make a reservation. Right now, there are 4 cabins available at that rate.

BTW- - - - - -if anybody's interested, some pulled pork BBQ like I brought to Grigg's can be made available- - - - -maybe even smoked overnight on site. I think I might be able to slip in a hotdog or three for Alvin as well!

I just heard back from the folks at the GM Truck Nationals, they don't have an issue with us having a canopy or flag and banner. They did suggest that we try to come in as a group so that we could stage our trucks together, if we had I couple of late stragglers we could try and save them a spot.

So now that this thing looks like it's going to come together I'm going to start a new thread to post information and updates in. Thank you for all the ideas and links, I'm sure I'll be picking your brains more as we go.
