Additional Info:

We are happy to announce this chapter rally in Arkansas. The chapter has been inactive for a couple of years due to some unfortunate circumstances, and we are inviting everyone to come to what we believe will be a very fun time. The park features folk music "jams" as well as even more local music in town.

We will get the Good Sam discount for up to five days. We are initially reserving 15 sites but hope for more.

An agenda will be posted soon, showing all attractions in town as well as our planned activities.

1. Jay and Stella Coffman
2. Billy and Janice Summit
3. Doug and Judy Chaney
4. Larry and Gayle Kuykendal
5. Luke and Carol Owens (AR) 5/1-5/4
6. Dave and Nancy Seabolt 5/1-5/5
7. David and Susan Gondron
8. Don and Joyce Baker
9. Ron and Barb Lambert (AR) 5/1-5/5

I have asked Billy Summit to be the wagon master of this rally. He is a work camper at the Ozark RV Park where the rally will be held and he will be a valuable asset for the rally. I have also learned that another HL couple, Doug and Judy Chaney, also work camp at the park and will help with the rally.

Larry and Gayle Kuykendal contacted me by PM to sign up for the rally.

Come on Arkansas, it's time to rally!!!

There's a lot to do in Mountain View. The Ozark Folk Center State Park is right next door to the campground. There are craft shops, representing the way things were done a hundred years ago in the Ozarks, that is open during the day. The Folk Center has a great auditorium in which folk musicians perform 4 nights a week, Wed - Sat. This is also walking distance from the RV park. There is an awesome cavern, Blanchard Springs, less than 20 miles away. There is usually jamming around the courthouse in downtown Mountain View most evenings. If you play, bring your instruments to the rally. You might even find a jam happening at the RV park some mornings, as well.

Dang, we'd really like to attend this one, but don't think we'll have enough time. We'll be getting back from Texas sometime at the end of April, and Sally will be leaving for her girl trip to FL on the 10th of May. Should be a good one!

We'd love to see you and Sally, Roy. There are still plenty of spaces.

A rally in Arkansas - wish we could make this one. Looks like a great restart to the chapter. Hope all members from Arkansas can make this one.

It's not too early to make your reservations for this rally. Both Billy Summit and I are at the park and planning some activities. I don't have an exact schedule yet, but we are planning a concert night at the Folk Center auditorium and a tour of Blanchard Cavern. I'm sure we'll have a potluck one evening as well.

Roy and Sally - it would be a treat if you were able to make it to the rally. And it's right on the way to Florida...

Come on Arkansas, let's make a showing in Mountain View. What does everyone think of having a breakfast cooking here one morning at the rec. building. Let me know your thoughts on this. Looking forward to meeting everyone. Thanks for Doug Chaney for helping me with the rally.

I'm in! Whatever we can do to help make this happen is fine.

Thanks guys for the offer's to help with the Breakfast. We'll make it happen. Probably on Saturday morning or if everyone gets here on Thursday we can have it on Friday morning. I was thinking that if everyone is in agreement we can go to Blanchard Springs Cavern's Saturday and the music show at the Ozark Folk Center Saturday night. I will check and see if we have enough people for a group rate at both places.

jayc

I hope we have enough for the group rate! Looking forward to the Ozarks.

Sounds good for Saturday morning breakfast. Would love to help. Pancakes sound good. I have a great recipe for buttermilk pancakes. May be tired from drive up on Thursday evening. Been 28 years since we went to the caverns with 3 small kids.

Update for the rally. We can get group rates for the Blanchard Springs Caverns, normal price per person is $10.50 but group rate is $7.50 with at least 15 people. I just need to let them know a day in advance.
The normal price for the show at the folk center is $12.00, but a group of 15 or more it's $9.00. I will need to let them know the afternoon before how many will be in the group.

For the ones that have not called and made the reservations yet we have saved you a spot. It would help if you would call so we could assign a site to you.

Thanks, Billy

Check your route into Mountain View. Tornado just went through area southeast about 40-50 miles.

Update on the storms that passed thru Arkansas last night. I assume everyone has seen the news about the damage and the deaths but we are OK in MV. We only had a little wind, but lots of rain. Looking forward to meeting everyone. I pray you have safe travels when coming here.

jayc

I spoke with Bill Summit this morning and learned that I-40 is open. Everyone coming up from the south should probably check their route to get around in the tornado damaged ares and take into consideration slower traffic.

4 units arrived today at the park. Glad everyone had a safe trip. Looking forward to the other arrivals tomorrow.

We were one of those that arrived this afternoon. It was a very long day to get here but we had a good trip. We met up with No. Texas Chapter Leaders Dave Seabolt and Nancy Anderson and traveled with them today. We saw some awesome scenery in the Ozarks and massive damage to Mayflower Arkansas from the recent tornado.


The party starts soon!

We wanted to make it, but unfortunately things didn't work out. Hope everyone has a good time. This area is definitely on our bucket list!

What route did you(Jay) take from Little Rock?

jayc
05-01-2014, 02:46 PM
We were on I-30 to the 430 loop, then I-40 to AR 65, then through Clinton AR to AR 66. It was a pretty drive and not bad.

Billy - work with me a year in advance on your date and I will likely be able to make it. Never rallied in AR but I'm ready too. Stayed there a few times passing through.

It will be around the same dates. It will probably be in the fall before I set a firm date.
