Nov 14-18: Fall Chapter Campout

October 9, 2018

The Rabun Chapter will hold its annual Fall Chapter Campout on Nov 14 -18, 2018 at Oconee State Park, just across the SC line from Rabun County. It’s sure to be a great time for fish-ing and fellowship.

The Georgia Delayed Harvest trout season begins Nov 1 and the Chattooga River should be well-stocked by the time of our campout. Yee Haa!!!

Campsite #93 in the “Wooded Loop” will be the official gathering site. Campsites fill up fastthis time of year, so don’t delay in making your campsite reservations (see below).

We will cook and eat breakfast and supper together every day and you are on your own for your noon meal. If you volunteer to cook a meal, then all meals are free for you. If you don’t cook a meal, then you pay $5 for each meal you eat to the cook. Now that’s a deal! Let Tony know of the meal you wish to cook, and what meals you plan to eat so the cooks can plan the meals. And hey! – if you don’t want to camp, just come by for a meal or sit by the fire!

If you have questions or plan to eat a meal, contact your camp hosts Tony & Teri Allred at 706-490-4755.
