yes it is.. I will need to figure out a different date. I don't mind going on easter.. but I can see where most folks would have other plans. I didn't realize that the date for Easter varied so much from year to year.. its all over April and even sometimes March.

from WIKIPEDIA: Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts, in that they do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars (both of which follow the cycle of the sun and the seasons). Instead, the date for Easter is determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar.

In Western Christianity, using the Gregorian calendar, Easter always falls on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25, inclusively.[43] The following day, Easter Monday, is a legal holiday in many countries with predominantly Christian traditions.

We camped last year for Easter at Bandy Creek, fun...

You might want to poll for which weekend good. Either is ok for us, we will need to take vacation days either way.

I spoke with Chong about the scheduling problem.. and have decided to move the event to the week after Easter. (April 29 - May 1, 2011) The week before EASTER is the K-Town sams rally at Smoky Bear.. and they will take up most of the sites.

I hope this is good for everyone!

Well since you all are having the first even late in month, It's a good chance we can make it. Talking to Karen we leave Fla and go right to Smoky Bear. There will be no unloading and loading everything is with us anyway. That's if it stays at 29 Th on . Very Happy Surprised

Works for me. The only thing that'll keep me away is the unexpected good fortune of some more work. Right now, it's looking good for camping that weekend.

I just made my reservation for this camping trip - I am in site #19. I think that is the one that Craig was in last year. Wanted to be just a little closer to the playground for the kids.

A few folks have already reserved sites.. So I am updating the initail post with some CG site photos.

The initial plans for the VOLUNTEER CAMPERS' Kick-Off Camp-Out for 2011.. are well underway. At this point in time we are planning the event as follows:

APRIL 29 - May 1 Friday through Sunday (some campers may arrive on Thursday)

You will also get live music and our famouse Sunday breakfast. (omelets in bag)
For more information and/or reservations call: 865.436.8372
Try and reserve a site between #13 - #22
In my opinion.. the best sites are 15 - 22.
