date set 17 April - 20 April 2008. Site 37 has been reserved by the Zuwharrie guys, so... Site 27 is the main site for the Spring event. It has already been reserved by me so try and reserve sites around #27. Maybe Smiley or someone will do up the standard info/attendee/map page and post it up

ill have to look into getting a cb, other then that i already have plans to fix the truck so it should be trail ready. what about places to park at night/sleep? id probably just sleep in the truck so i wouldnt have to worry about a tent or anything.

Sleeping arrangements are via the Arrowhead Campgrounds. Click Here if you want to make reservations. As Joe mentioned he has all ready reserved campsite 27, so try to reserve one around there or go in with another person on one close to it. All the needed info and probably the answers to most of your questions should be answered by the revised initial post (when it gets the map, info, etc).

there is always room at somebody's site, just need to help out with the $$ if you stay on a site with someone else. Once we get the map and such up it will give everyone a better idea who is staying where and who has room on their site.
