    Default May Actual MOAL Business Meeting

    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:
    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.

    Address of Pickwick Landing State Park:
    Lodge & Conference Center
    120 Playground Loop

    Hoping to generate some RSVPs Y'all...

    Tim recently RSVP'd making a Splendid suggestion. In Honour of the mostly retired Chicken Rally, the BoD will take his suggestion to cater a Chicken Dinner from R&B's BBQ Restaurant down the road in Counce. The plan is to accept a $10 contribution from Meeting attendees, and the club will cover any eXtra costs. This will be a CHICKEN BBQ for MOAL members! Y'all can keep those adult beverages cleverly concealed along with other H/W... I'm told that the Pavilion has a limit of 50 attendees (cause that's what I reserved, what with club event participation currently pretty meager). You get my drift? Thus far, I've got confirmations for 4 members. Don't go inviting all your biker buddies for this business meeting/campout, Por Favor...

    That leaves it up to the group of Friday arrivals whether to eat at the Lodge's restaurant or go out to another place
    {the Famous Botel across the river seems to be Permanently Closed}. Convenience says simply set up camp and eat off the land!

    Hope we can soon start "getting back to normal."
    Happy Trails, Phil & Karen
