OK Folks... This just in and is directly from the horse's mouth---

<span style="color:#800080">I got off the phone a few minutes ago with the very sweet lady at Whispering Pines....

She said that she realized that they had assigned a site number to a trailer or two. She said this was an error on their part. Their normal procedure for rallies is that the Wagon Master presents them a list of attendees in advance and then people choose where they want to be -- FIRST COME : FIRST SERVED.

"But what if someone wants to be next to a family member or a special friend," I asked.

She replied, "The first arrival should go ahead and park in a site next to a vacant site. Then, set a chair or something in the vacant site to indicate that it is reserved." If the person wanted to, he/she could make a hand-lettered sign that says, "RESERVED" and stick it on the chair.

Then I asked, "What about folks who want to come a few days early and/or stay late?"

"Not a problem," the lady said. "They do not have to let us know in advance. We will have plenty of vacant spaces that time of the year to accommodate early arrivals and late stayers."

So folks, this is much simpler for you. It's a little more complicated for me, but not enough to sweat about. Please don't make something difficult that is not.

(The Registration website is being corrected)

<span style="color:#FF0000"><span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">ONLY FOUR MORE MONTHS....</span><span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:100%">

The PineKnot-IV Registration Form has been edited to reflect the new registering procedure. I am sorry that our trying to make things simple confused so many people.

In other news, The Crime Stoppers Band is confirmed. They will perform on Friday night, immediately after the Pot Luck.

Also, Susan has agreed to again host the Pet Show.

Please remember that the campground is limiting us to 60 units. As of now, we have almost 30 registrants. So please register early to assure you will have a spot. (All over the sixty quota and all unregistered arrivals may set up at Tyler State Park, about 10 miles away).

Happy camping!
Paul

IMPORTANT ! !
PLEASE READ ! !</span></span>


<span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">Thirty-eight units are now registered for PineKnot-IV. That means there are only twenty-two spaces remaining. Therefore, please check the following list carefully.

If your name is NOT on it, you are NOT registered. If you have registered, and you don't see your name, some glitch prevented your form from coming through. Or, you may want to attend and have not registered yet. In either case, you need to go to and complete the PineKnot-IV Registration Form as soon as possible.

If your name IS on the list, please do NOT register again.

<span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">ONLY TWO SPACES LEFT AT WHISPERING PINES, but....</span></span>

<span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">Go ahead and register anyway. The sixty-first person to register will be responsible for securing his own reservation at Tyler State Park, or any other facility.

Please note that those who register at another park may participate in all the events at the rally. Each family will be issued a free "Day Pass" by Whispering Pines, although each family will still need to pay our $10 registration fee.

Below is a list of registrants as of July 1, 2008, 9:25 PM, CDT. As you can see, 58 have registered. (The last number says 59, but note that 36 was a duplication).</span></span>

<span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">The 59th and 60th registration just came in. If you want to enjoy PineKnot-IV, go ahead and register. As stated above, you will have to secure your own site at another RV Park, but you can still participate in all our activities. There is a possibility that more sites may be available at Whispering Pines. Also, there will probably be cancellations which will be filled on a first-come first-served basis from those who register from now on.</span></span>

60. Jim H
61. Margy L & Ellie C
62. Mill & Linda W
63. Gene & Mildred K</span></span>

<span style="font-size:10pt;line-height:100%">
As posted several times above, Whispering Pines is limiting us to sixty sites for the rally. Due to a duplicate registration I did not catch, the numbers on the list are off by one, so #61, above, is actually the 60th to register.

All over the 60 are advised to make reservations at Tyler State Park, only a few miles away, ASAP. These will be able to participate at all the activities at Whispering Pines. Should there be cancellations or other spots available at Whispering Pines, these people will be notified and they can claim the vacancies in the order they have registered with us.

If you have not registered and want to attend, please register and you might possibly have a site at Whispering Pines too.

<span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Microsoft Sans Serif">COPY OF EMAIL SENT 8/23/08:

We sent the following email yesterday to all who are registered for PK-IV. Realizing this may have gone to some "spam" boxes, we are posting it here. If you did not receive it, please reply as directed.

Whispering Pines offers a "U Cook It" where we each can take a meat and grill it, each to his own satisfaction. They, in turn, furnish everything else, including tableware, drinks (tea, coffee, ice water), condiments and spices, hot coals, clean-up, and the following sides: Green salad, baked potatoes with fixin's, sauteed veggies, garlic toast, and a delicious-sounding dessert. The cost per person is $6.00 as of now, but subject to change. (Gratuity not included nor expected, but appreciated if food and service are outstanding). The fee will be collected at the campground before the event. It will be held on Thursday night. We need to know how many of you will be planning to participate. SO, please reply pineknot4-Do Not Post Email Addresses-yahoo.com with a YES or NO.

Thanks very much,
Paul S</span></span>
