September 27-30, 2018 Hosted by Nancy and Mike Gore
Come celebrate Nancy turning 60 and now being available for all senior discounts! There is much to do in Pine Mountain – kayaking, antique shopping, golfing, visiting Callaway Gardens, and of course….eating!! The park is beautiful, with the only downside being that you cannot reserve a specific site. Mike can go early and put placeholders on sites if you register before the event so we are somewhat close together. Reserve America. We will have a potluck dinner on Friday night and dinner out at a local restaurant on Saturday. More details to come later.
