This is the latest news I have seen.
Spring Fever Regatta 2008
is back on and home again at Milltown Campground
This afternoon, I received a call from my friends at the Army Corps of
Engineers with a proposal for me to consider. They said they would give
me the key to the gate, turn on the water, and the electricity. IF ---
I, personally, would take care of everything else: Including, but not
limited to, cleaning the entire park before and after the regatta,
cleaning and repairing all bath house facilities, removing all trash and
garbage, killing another gazillion fire ants, and raising the lake back
up a few feet from it's present less than full pool level.
Obviously, I agreed to all of it although I sure hope we get a few
inches of rain in the next two months.
So, in short, Spring Fever is back on for this year and if we take care
of the campground, as we always have done in the past, I'm pretty sure
we won't have to go through this exercise again in future years - I'm
just getting too old for this foolishness.
We currently have 38 pre-registered and the web site is back up for
pre-registration as is the list of those that have signed up so far.
I'll do my best to keep it updated on a daily basis.
I know it's getting late but please pre-register as soon as possible.
We really need to know how many are coming so that we can line up the
food and have something to show our sponsors to get them back on board.
My personal thanks to all of you who wrote emails to the various powers
to be. Although it may have already been in the works, my phone rang
within hours after it was announced, along with a couple of your letters
and my interview, in our local newspaper.
See you Easter Weekend.
Spring Fever Coordinator and Campground Maintenance Manager
