Short notice: Light up/get together Standing Stone State Park, Hilham TN New Date! Friday June 24th

Post by Rustytank »

I know it's short notice and trust me it's a small get together but we hope it grows into something big. As many of you know our own Volvoguy is an Interpretive Ranger with the Tennessee State Parks and he's gotten to incorporate this great hobby into the programs he conducts in the parks. So the first get together will be this Friday, June 3rd at 7pm at the recreation hall pavillion at Standing Stone State Park, 1674 Standing Stone Park Hwy, Hilham, TN 38568
If anyone is close and wants to come out you can say you were at the first meeting if it ever gets big.
There is no cost as far as I know, bring your favorite camp chair.
Here's the link for the park calender https://tnstateparks.com/parks/events/s ... ding-stone

About 3.5 hours but if I didn't already have plans I'd be there. Coming from north Alabama. Maybe next time.

Well we had a small but good showing considering the short notice. Three other folks besides Volvoguy and I.
I'll post details on the next one as soon as I get them.

I have another program like this planned for June 24th I believe, though it is not official.

I do a lot with Coleman gear in general in the park from using lanterns in programs to using stoves to cook free food for guests.

It’s been a fun time hearing Coleman stories as well. Someone today told me they have a few lanterns they didn’t know how to put “socks” onto, but they were aware they sold them at Walmart. I gave them a quick lesson there.

Most park guests will mention a lantern and stove in the garage or whatnot that’s been long forgotten.
