BAR46 and BAR47

I neglected to post anything about the Balta reunions from 2016 and 2017, so this is a marker about them for future reference.

First is the announcement of BAR46, hosted by Pat and Dee Carroll:

Hope everyone got home safely from Watsonville, and we’re grateful for Heidi Cotler’s hard work, excellent cooking and logistical skills.

For 2016, we are making reservations at a campground in Bar Harbor, Maine. The dates are September 15 through 17, 2016.

The Campground:

Why are we telling you this now? In October 2015?
1. It’s a small coastal resort in New England on the edge of leaf-peeping season, with a great national park next door. Busy.
2. The campground has two levels of cabins: Renovated and 1940s. First money gets the renovated cabins.

So time is a factor. We’ve made a deposit. Give it some thought and tell us if you’d like to come. (Deposits $100 per person by January 1, 2016.)


Next is info about BAR47 hosted by Larry Wilhelm and Jennie McElroy:

There will be another BALTAfest!

Thanks to Larry and Jennie, we are going to the Plimpton Lodge in Sevierville, Tenn., near to Dollywood, Gatlinburg and Smoky Mountains National Park. Look it up on VRBO! Or here’s a site for the lodge that I found using Google.

Dates are Thursday, Sept 28 through Sunday morning, Oct. 1.  Be there.  No early arrivals, but it might be possible to arrange a later departure day if Larry knows soon enough.

Nearest major airport is in Knoxville, 45 minutes.
