Watts Bar Update 2 (20220730)

Posted: 7/30/2022

Hello Watts Bar Campers! We are working hard to get things lined up for the September CA and have a few things that require early attention to ensure all goes smoothly during our week at Hornsby Hollow. Thanks to all who have signed up to attend and made their reservations.

As in the past, we plan to attend a matinee performance at the Cumberland County Playhouse in Crossville, TN on Thursday, 9/22/22. For those new to the CA, the Cumberland County Playhouse is the only major non-profit professional performing arts resource in rural TN, and one of the 10 largest professional theaters in rural America. We will be seeing the “Buddy Holly Story” which is likely to include some early Rock and Roll tunes many of us will recognize. To reserve a block of seats at a group rate, we need to get a firm head count and pre-pay.

Prior to the above, we plan to take advantage of the all-you-can-eat buffet style lunch at Homestead Harvest in the Cumberland Mountain State Park. This allows a varied menu to satisfy individual dietary needs or preferences and also is quick and easy to fit within our time constraints. (If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.) We will pay for this fixed price buffet with one check to minimize individual transactions and time in lines. (Tips for servers will still be up to individuals.)

To facilitate pre-payment, we would like to collect $45.00 per attendee for the two events above. Please respond to the below address with the number of attendees and a check for the appropriate amount. (Please make checks payable to Tim Hallihan)

Please note this dollar amount is in addition to the CA fee we will collect at the beginning of the CA to cover the cost of other activities ($20-$30).

We are looking forward to seeing you all in September and are learning there are more than a few moving parts to the Watts Bar/Hornsby Hollow venue. Jim and Lynne have been very helpful and even loaned us their Size 16 EEE Converse Allstars. It is very helpful to have coaches that have travelled this path.
