Just heard back from the campground who has blocked us off rows I, J and K for the rally, that way we will all be together. YEAH ;) The campground also said they will honor the rally rate before and after the rally dates for those that would like to come in early or leave a little later :D

As time goes on, we will let ya'll know activities as they develop.

We will plan on being there whether or not that is still our home park (we stay there when I work downtown). By the way, Nathan or Byrd, the management is in flux there right now. Not sure who you talked to, but Fred and Jen recently left and there is temporary management in place from KOA right now. Wouldn't hurt to follow up as time progresses.

Nabo
09-30-2014, 05:55 PM
Yes Malcolm, the management is changing but I have been working with the corporate regional manager with everything documented so we are good. The campground had some major upgrades and renovations which is to the good for those who were there in 2010 for the National rally. Hope you and Valerie can make it.

OK, cool.

We will plan on being there. Since we stay there on a regular basis in a longer-term site, we will be making reservations later on probably over in the longer-term area (Just a couple rows over, typically). Pencil us in as a "Yes", though we may or may not be in the I, J or K rows with the rest of the folks (we generally stay in G row).

Heading out west next year. Hopefully will not fall in love out there and decide to stay for the year. But if we come back east after summer then will definitely stop for rally.

Seren - heading west is a blast which you will love. We have done it a couple of times over the years and plan on doing it again in 2017 after the National rally, ending up in Alaska. We would love to have ya'll but understand the fun seeing what's out there.

I am not one to step on the big guys toes. Just though that out as a question. You know me, golf clubs always go, Millie and Lucifer might have to stay at home. LOL

Tell the big guy I will handle scheduling a round or two (Thursday/Friday mornings) of golf for those who want to play. Will use Two Rivers which is like only 2 miles of so from the KOA.

Edited 8-May: Changed arrvial date to 12-Oct as we're now planning on attending the KY rally prior to the TN rally.

The Belettis are planning to attend this rally!

We are arriving Monday, October 12 and staying for 7 nights - departing on the 19th.

We're in site I8.
32380

For those who have not been here in a while, the rows Byrd has booked for the rally are premium sites. Long pull-throughs with patios and patio furniture. That said, I didn't walk all the sites but I believe most are like this.

Roof top satellite will work from most, but not all sites. While all of these sites are pull-through, there are a couple sites with a tree right at the corner of the site and on those couple of sites, you'll want to back in from the front of the site.

Many of these sites have 2 sewer connections depending on whether you want to put your RV to the front of the site or the back of the site.

Nabo
10-07-2014, 07:22 PM
WOW Jim - thanks for the photo :). The campground has worked hard to upgrade many sites over the past year and this is proof.

How exciting to have the "Pres" of the Club joining us.

I use them often to go downtown to have lunch with Malcolm. $10 per person, round trip, beats driving the dually and paying for parking.

Will know in 2 weeks if we can work this one in. As that is the week we stay in Ms and crappie fish. But there talking about moving it a week. If so it will work for us. If not enjoy.
Leaving Wed heading to Enid Lake and see how many crappie we can catch. Then cook about 75 lbs of crappie fillets for a big fish dinner Saturday evening.

I know it's a little early scheduling outside activities but would there be an interest in possibly going to the Grand Old Opry last showing Friday evening? The 2015 schedule is not out yet but this year they have a 9:30 show on Friday evening. Not sure what the price would be but if there is an interest, we can start to do some investigation.

And sadly we will not be at Goshin this year. I am pretty sure Millie is going to insist on making Granddaughters wedding in June.

Great Karen. I've done some investigating and it looks like there is a show on Thursday night, Oct 15th at the Ryman Auditorium. Now that would be cool to see the Opry in it's original home. Stay tune as more details to come.

We are also working on possibly a tour of Nashville. All we can say is ​Stay Tune :)

We were so excited when we seen this rally and the time frame. Just completed our vacation schedule and we are planning on attending. We used to live about 10 to 15 minutes from the KOA and have not been to Nashville in almost 20 years so we are looking forward to. Most of our trips to TN now are to Knoxville. So the Big Orange vs Georiga the Saturday before then over to Nashville for rally should be awesome. Does anyone know if the Cock of the Walk resturant is still open? We used to love that place....I sure hope it is.

We didn't eat there but 2 nights ago, the lot was pretty full at Cock of the Walk. We ate at Macaroni Grill in the mall then went to a movie. I stayed on my October rally site. Love it!

The older, upper level of the campground is still under heavy reconstruction. Looks like all the RV spaces are being redone will all new utilities etc.

It sounds like there's definitely an interest in a pre-rally outing on Thursday evening to Grand Ole Opry at it's original home, the Ryman. I will call the box office next week and get us a block of seats booked, and more information on how payment will be done. Right now it looks like it will be in the tier 2 area. (One or two have said that they would prefer tier 1 so I will get with ya'll later about booking those seats [remember tier 1 does not have any discounts]).

As new folks register for the rally and wants to also go to the Opry, let us know as soon as possible so we can try to get seats together or at least near each other.

OK everyone - I have put GOO (Grand Ole Opry) beside those who have said they want to be included for the tickets. It looks like tier 2 was the majority so after everyone checks the 1st post to see if we got ya down for tickets, I will make the reservations probably Friday. If we missed someone, let us know ASAP. The total cost of your tickets will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $86.40, give or take a buck or two. I will give you more information on where to mail your payment soon.

GOLF........for those of us who are just not as bright as those who do not chase the little white ball around........... I am looking at making a tee time for those who want to play for Thursday morning around 9AM. The course (Two Rivers) is just down the parkway 2 miles from the campground (maybe 3). Figured we could get in 18 and be back in plenty of time before heading down to the Opry Thursday nite. Right now I know of 4 players. If there is anyone else please let me know so I can tell the course. There should not be any issues unless we just happen to hit a day when the course has something happening or weather gets in the way. If we had rather play on Friday morning can do that also.

Back home (RV) after having surgery on my leg/ankle yesterday in Panama City, feeling pretty good, considering. Now have a 10 inch long metal plate with 11 screws attached to my left fibula. They also realigned the ankle to put it back in place (was slightly out of place due to ligament damage). No weight on the foot for about 2 months (until beginning of Oct) then physical therapy. So bottom line is that not sure if we will make it to the rally. Will have to see how everything goes and probably make a decision by the end of the month. Good thing we bought a Denver mattress at the Goshen rally - I think I will be using it a lot over the next few months.

Doing ok, outside healing, but will not know how bone is healing till 6 weeks (17 Sep). I would assume it will be a few more weeks after that. They said 6-9 weeks and 9 weeks is 7 Oct, so cutting it close. Assuming things are healing properly I am hoping we will still make it.

This rally couldn't be put on without the help of others and so many folks have come forward to help. So far we have:

Linda Eanes - will be heading up and organizing the Meet-N-Greet and potluck meals. She has asked for one or two others to help her organize the dishes as they come into the rally hall.
Ron and Sheila Brown - the 50/50 raffle ticket sales. Ticket sales will be on Friday and Saturday night with the drawing being Saturday night.
Judy Winkle - the Heartland Gives Back project. Stay tune as she is working with a local organization for more information.
Tom Combs - the Golf outing. So far we have 6 signed up to play. Anyone else interested.
Valerie and Malcolm Talley - Welcome committee.

A great big THANKS to all of these folks for helping.

KOAs in general in this area are going "To He__ in a Handbasket". The people at the one closest to us are very nice, but the prices have gone out of site. We used to go to it several times a year just for a weekend getaway, but we've only been twice this year and that was only so we could take the grandkids and still be close to home in case something happened.

Constant string of personal issues going so we had to delay registration. Just tried today to get a reservation, and the only site they had left was about as far away from everybody that we could get and still be in the park. Would like to come, but we are holding off for now. We will keep checking the forum in case anyone cancels. Or if anyone who has reservations now needs to cancel, please let us know.

As of today (9-15-15), all of the block campsites have been taken. If you would like to come to the rally, the campground will try to put you as close to the group as possible. The discount rate will still be honored. The KOA group coordinator Nancy has asked that you speak with her directly so she can get you a site. She is in the office Tuesday thru Saturday from 8-5 central time. Call the Nashville office at 615-889-0282. There still is one 62' site (as of right now) available across from the office that is not in the group area but is an ez walk to the rally hall.

I think that's the one long site they have over there that we stayed in back when the power was out in Jellystone. I'm almost positive it was like R-16. While its a nice, quiet site, it is a bit of a hike to where the rest of us are staying.

Looks like we will be there as scheduled although I will probably be limping around. We did sign-up for the Ryman show but have not paid since we were not sure if we would be able to attend the rally, so I assume that it is too late at this point. Nonetheless, looking forward to meeting everyone.

WOW - what a huge group going to the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman Auditorium. It's recommended, due to parking downtown being difficult, to catch the bus service which goes downtown. Here's info:

How often does it go downtown? Daily from 10 am until 12:30 am
Cost: $10 per person round trip
Where does it take me? Downtown drop-off point is in front of the Country Music Hall Of Fame. This is about one block from the Ryman Auditorium.
How often does the bus run? Pick-up at the KOA is at the top of the hour (approx)
I want to go back to the campground. How often does it pick up downtown? Pick-up is in front of the Country Music Hall of Fame at the bottom of the hour.
Is there an additional cost for the return trip? No - the $10 covers the round trip.

The bus will carry about 25 folks at a time. You can go down early to do some site seeing, eat supper or shop or stay as late as you want up until 12:30 am Friday morning. Enjoy and have fun.

MCTalley

We will have a rental car during the week (as I will be working in Nashville the week of the rally and the next and typically rent a car). If someone might need extra accommodations due to health or other issues where riding in a car as opposed to riding the bus might be preferable, let me know. We can drive downtown whenever as we are signed up for the show. I have a parking pass from work for a parking garage a block north of the Ryman.

Prayers are needed for:

Malcolm and Valerie Talley - accident while traveling with their camper. They are both fine but the truck and trailer didn't fair as well. There is a thread already started with more information. Look for "Prayers for Malcolm & Vallerie".
Tom and Gerry Weber - Gerry had some surgery earlier this month and unfortunately the doctors wont release her to come to the rally. Pray for a speedy recovery. They have had to cancel coming to the TN Rally.

Great News: Mike Williams has been released by the doctors - YEAH - therefore they didn't have to cancel and will be attending.

Since I will pretty much have to be in Nashville during the rally, if we don't have a trailer to bring we'll probably rent a camping cabin. There are several near or in the middle of the rally sites. I'll try to determine that as soon as possible. If this ends up being the case, we'll make sure someone in the group gets first dibs on our RV spot.
