Sorry to hear that Doran, have a safe trip wherever you may be headed.  As for shirts, no shirts this year, trying  out a new venue and  date for the first time.  Intention is to learn the good and bad, then apply what we learned for next year.

I just checked with Jannell and got this response:

"No tents in addition to a RV on the site.  Because you are tent camper you can have two tents per site for the $25.00 fee."

Just got a confirmation email from Janell, Thursday to Sunday.  I am gonna do a test "launch" in my driveway to see what launching the Z with an rv will be like.  Nope, not a roller trailer thank God.  Just want to see how well the emergency brake and parking pawl work to hold a hill.  My front driveway is easily steeper than most ramps.  When are Joe/Laurie arriving?

     Just a update for everyone.   Reservations have been rechecked and verified, all is a go for Thursday through Sunday.   Lake level is 905.47, normal is 904.00   Cant imagine 1.5' over normal being any kind of issue.   Weather forecast has Thursday morning showers, clearing to 90 and sunny.  Friday is clear, 87 degrees and 0% chance of rain.  Saturday is partly cloudy with a 10% chance of rain.   Plenty of opportunity for those planning a last minute getaway.  The old digs(honey creek campground) has plenty of openings, not sure of the resort.     Friday lunch will be at the resort which should make a nice cruise from the marina. I should be there around lunchtime on Thursday, Joe and Laurie arrive Thursday evening, and Tim, Christine, and my wife will arrive Friday at lunchtime.

Weekend went great, the weather was amazing… Well until Sunday we hung out a little later, went back out on the lake and got a little wet while packing up

We spent most of the afternoon Friday and all day Saturday sitting on the beach hanging out, ran down to the end of the week both days.

The campground was decent, though the spaces were a little more compact than the state park there were flat places to put the tents. The ability to have a slip was amazing, and made it a heck of a lot easier to get on the lake.

       Rathbun 2016 was a great time, here is a brief synopsis of the weekend.  I arrived Thursday the 7th, stopped by the store/office and talked with Janell.  Got all the paperwork and fee's taken care off and then went to prep the CVZ for the water.  One of the staff members helped launch the CVZ as I was a bit uncertain with a 24' RV.   There is no dock to tie off to on the main ramp, but later in the weekend I realized there was a 2nd ramp that did have a dock.  Once the CVZ was tied off in the slip, I dropped the trailer just up the hill, then parked the RV at the campsite and got everything set up.   Power and water are available, but not full hookups.   Not and issue, a dump station exists just outside the camping area.  Had to join some extension cords because power was about 60' away.   The campground is brand new and turf is just getting established.   Restroom facilities are nice, showers are hot.   Even though it had only one shower, I never had to wait in the three days I was there.   Grabbed some refreshments at the convenience store and went out on the lake for about three hours Thursday afternoon.   Joe and Laurie arrived Thursday evening, helped set up and launch their GT.    Enjoyed the evening and company and got to bed a bit late(circa 1am)    Friday came and it was another beautiful day.  Joe/Laurie and I went out for a run, then tied off and floated a bit until the call came that the rest of the party had arrived.  Tim, Christine, and my wife Connie arrived Friday about lunchtime as we were returning from another great ride on the lake.  Had a few starting/launching issues with Tim's GT, took battery out and put on charger.  Loaded up and went to the resort for lunch.   We were able to sit on the patio, and they allowed us to have the dogs just off the patio.   Enjoyed some local brews and great food, then headed back out to cruise the lake.    Found a nice spot to beach just at the entrance of the lake where we could watch all the boats coming and going to the lake.   We were interrupted by the fish biting........US!  Joe and Tim got nipped, Laurie and I had a few brushes.   Funny really, no real injuries involved.  Saturday was yet another gorgeous day on the water, a few pictures taken, cruised the lake, back to sand beach.  Sunday was  bummer, cuz it was time to head back to town.  Had a nice visit, took a group picture, packed up, and headed home.  4 hour drive at 55mph, but not one gravel road was taken.   Access to the camping and marina was awesome, easiest location to access by far(so far).   Staff was attentive and very helpful.   Having a slip was a godsend, made going out/back so much easier.  Except for some hard starting issues on Tim's GT, no other major engine/boat issues occurred.  No one was towed on a rope. 
      Overall we had a great time, it was great to see Joe/Laurie again, would have liked to see more folks from the club, but honestly, we were able to find consensus on activities easier with 6 people.   Weather was phenomenal the entire time except for a brief shower on Sunday afternoon.  For three days camping, slip rental, and ramp fee came to about $150.00, similar in scope to TI.  Here are the links to the tree videos I shot, please don't be too critical, kinda hard to run the boat and shoot video simultaneously.  Probably missed a few things about the weekend sorry, was caught in the moments and didn't document all too well.
