The Pineknot Rally at Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, TX is just around the corner and we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Rally dates are October 19-23. As always we have put in a request with the Salmon Lake folks for good weather, no guarantees but the weather is usually very nice that time of the year.
We’ll do our best to greet y’all as you arrive but if we miss you please stop by our trailer and say “Hi” - we’ll be in the white trailer so it should be easy to find. Just look for the orange wind sock or the two people sporting orange t-shirts on Wednesday and Thursday if you need assistance or have questions. Our phone numbers are (210) 792-7570 or 7571.
We will once again have a rally registration fee of $10 per person (no inflation here!) which can be taken care of on Wednesday afternoon the 19th of October. We will have a registration table set up at the Sunshine Inn. (Cash or check please).
Here are some hints to make your check in process go more smoothly.
1. Check in and pay at the office when you arrive. Full hook up sites are $30/night for 30 amp sites. Rigs requiring 50 amps are $35/nite. If you plan to stay for 7 nights the rate yields a small discount. When you arrive you may end up on one of the 50 amp sites, that is OK just make sure you bring your 50 to 30 amp adapter you will still just be charged at the 30 amp rate. There appear to be no restrictions this year for early arrivals.
2. Payment can be made via credit card (with a small transaction fee), cash, or check. You may either: Pay in advance over the phone (936 687-2594) or Stop in at the office upon arrival to pay for a site (Best option to avoid cancellation fees) or If arriving after hours, go to a site and then visit the office the next morning to pay.
The official agenda will be emailed to registrants prior to the rally but the unofficial agenda is to get together with friends both old and new to have a good time.
When we took over the Rally in 2019 our plan was to host it through 2022 because of planned family related travel beginning in 2023. With that in mind we are looking for someone to step up and take over the host duties. This is probably one of the easiest rallies to host as it is a bit less organized than some with the main emphasis being on spending time visiting and relaxing. So if you are thinking of getting your feet wet and testing the waters of rally hosting, this is the one for you. We will definitely be available to assist in the pre-rally planning and depending on our family schedule we may even be able to attend next year.
A unique event that has been a part of this rally for many years is the Ladies’ Tea. Sandra Hannah has coordinated this fun activity of years and will be stepping down following this year. If you are interested in keeping the Tea going, please let either Sandra or Linda know and everything you need to know will be provided for you.
Thanks so much!!
