Joint Tennessee and Alabama chapters get together

How about ideas for a joint Tennessee and Alabama chapters get together,

What kinda activities do we want?
Family activities, State park/ Campground, Lake/River, Mountains, diesel shop/dyno, drag strip/ sled pull

Seems like for a lot of us money is a bit of an issue so we may want to keep it cheap as possible so that more can come.

I figure if we can throw out a lot of different ideas then decide what we want to do then we can decide where and when.

So let’s start throwing ideas out;


Here is a link to the same post in the AL forum;

How about at the end of August? I could bring one of the boats for folks to play in. We prefer hotels or lodges in a state park if they are available to site camping. I have a camping set up for my conversion van. But, it isn't a "stroke". Somebody throw a few pins in a map and see what is closest for all of the members.

If the Alabama guys haven't gotten a map yet one of their members might take that on and we could collaborate on an event map.

Hey guys. There is a street class diesel truck class on Sept 18 at the Lincoln County Fair in Fayettville, TN. THat only about 15min from the Alabama line. Would be good fun for the kids at the fair and get to pull too.

I have the same issue as Crew991, but unlike him I can swap shifts to be off. I really like the Fayetteville Fair Pulling event! I may even enter the 6.Slow I Am with Brad, I don't have a camper and rent on one is prohibative, so a motel close to whatever we do is important.

The meet in Fayetteville will be the most centrally located for everyone. It is just about smack in the middle for everyone, Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga on the TN side. I will alert the membership to this effort too.

I think there is a antique tractor show before the pull also, if anyone is interested. I will probably bring our 1946 Co-op E3

I think after pullin strings to get the weekend off for the last G2G, Robbie will be hard pressed to get another weekend off unplanned.

But that is a good idea for the G2G location and event!

I'm game for whatever, whenever. I'll be out of town in Aug, but probably not again until october-november.

That does sound like a great idea, I got to try and find out more about the event. It would be great if they are having an antique tractor show, then I can combine both hobbies into one. If so I will bring at least 2 antique 2 banger Deeres and leave the camper at home.
