SPRING UWHARRIE 2021, APR 28 - 2 MAY

Postby Van » Sat Feb 13, 2021 5:22 pm

Most everyone knows where and now you know when. :D

For those of you who don't know where Uwharrie is, please ask.

I'll have to keep this short and to the point unless some one else is willing to take this tread over.

Here is the rest of what the Staff Officer said... "Badin Lake Group Camp has capacity for 50 people at each of the 3 sites. There is a bathhouse with 4 individual showers, 2 individual flush toilets & 2 vault toilets. There are drinking water hydrants there too. The cost for those sites are $75 each but there is not power at the sites. There is power at the bathhouse. Usually, the hosts at KMP or at Badin Lake CG open the gate around 3:30 or 4 pm on the day for when a camper has a reservation."

I'm looking at the Arrowhead campground availability and sites #28-42 are available minus #31 (1st come bases) and #35... Which Jerry has reserved already.

I'm reserving site #34 in case I can make it.

I know some of y'all don't want to camp at Arrowhead which is y"alls choice, but if y'all take campsites further up from the camp host, I don't think we would have much of a problem with them. :wink:

Gotta stop for mow.

Good morning folks.

As much as I hate to break rank and split the group up I will not be returning to Arrowhead this year. Those camp hosts made a point to target us, and I will not spend my vacation watching my back for Dudley Dooright and his bride sneaking up on me or calling the cops because their feelings got hurt. I am going to book one of the group sites tonight after a do some more snooping around to figure out if one is better than the other. I will be bringing a generator for community use if desired. There is enough room for 10-12 rigs for whoever cares to join Smitty, Blaine, Shannon & myself.

I'm just not even going to risk it. I was nice to them last year, but if they said anything to me this trip I would likely need bail money.

OK kids, it is official. I just booked site C in the Group camp area. After some recon from MrDungee (thanks Nate!) it is quite clear that we should probably plan on 5-6 tents per site and realistically the same number of rigs. With that being said, We have 1-2 spots open at the site I booked after My crew, Blaine & Nate, their wives, and another guy (forgot his name) coming in from Nashville area. $50 per rig covers the site for the weekend. Let me know if you are interested and we will put your name on a spot.

I suspect this site will be full quickly. Then it would be great if someone else can reserve Site B (next to this site) and more people can camp there basically giving us a huge site.

Now, on to my favorite topic of the weekend... Dinner Friday night!! Anyone have anything in mind? I'm thinking about something simple that is usually a crowd favorite. Any objections to Steak, baked potatoes, and grilled corn on the cob??

Can you tell I am ready to get out of this house?? :lol:

This will be a game time decision for me. James is playing soccer this Spring, and his soccer schedule may conflict with dates for this trip. If we can't make it in the Spring, we will plan to see you guys in the Fall.
