May MOAL Business Meeting relocated to Pickwick Landing State Park in southern Tenn.

Haley Newton at Joe Wheeler State Park informed me on 24Feb that their ongoing rehabilitation projects won’t allow them to open up camping or reservations until Fall. I therefore have reserved an outdoor pavilion for the scheduled May 22nd Business Meeting at Pickwick Landing State Park in southern Tennessee [about 120 mi from HSV]. It has all the amenities we were seeking at Joe Wheeler including: a Lodge with restaurant and an assortment of cabins, campsites, and RV spots next to the Tenn River’s Pickwick Lake & Dam.

Please plan ahead while lodge rooms and campsites are abundant. I booked a campsite for Fri & Sat nights for ~$60 including taxes & fees. For both the Lodge & Camping use this link: https://reserve.tnstateparks.com/pickwick-landing
Follow the selection buttons. I clicked on Friday & Sunday on the calendar to signify my two nite request. It appears our campsite {32} is about a mile from the Lodge/Restaurant along the Pickwick Lake shore.
