    Posted: November-11-2019 at 8:50am
Hey Gang....It's about that time to start a discussion of a River Ruckus 2020. Is there enough interest from the CCFan base to pull the trigger on what would be the 11th Annual SJRR.
I have done a little research into when we would do this if y'all wanted to continue the tradition and we have a bit of an issue.

The usual date is the same weekend of the Sunnyland boat show which is going to be March 19-22nd. The issue is that our normal HQ at Parramores Campground is pretty full this weekend and the following weekend. At the time of this post there are only 7 cabins left. That is really gonna limit the amount of participants attending unless we come up with another venue or change the date.

Daylight Savings time starts March 8th . If we pushed back the Ruckus to April, the weather would be a little warmer but we'd lose out on visiting the ACBS show. We can still do the River Run as it's a CCFan Favorite and just do the town of Tavarres and hit the local establishments for lunch and brews. It would be a different change of things and possibly for the better. I'll leave it up to you'se guys as this event is for us to officially kick off the boating andski season for many of us that aren't local. Soooooooooooooooooo Whatcha' think?

Did you try Castaways? Seems like they have way more cabin space than Parramores IRRC.

I'm hopeful we can make a spring CCFan trip.

Does April conflict with White Lake?

I personally like the idea of an April gathering because of the obvious reasons. Warmer weather and the river would be a bit warmer for water sports. The last couple of years it's been a bit chilly as old man winter usually doesn't fully release his grip on the cold season. I think the White Lake mini has run its course according to Townsend I believe. I've a wedding to attend to the first weekend of April and Easter is the following weekend. I'm not opposed to doing it Easter as Good Friday holiday might make it easier for Fans to travel as many are off that day. Could schedule it for April 16-19th but is that too late for folks?   Keep the feedback coming guys. I realize its early but planning ahead isn't a bad thing.

Dave the only reason to skip a year of the Ruckus is folks may be tired of doing it or just flat out not enough interest. I know Nautiquehunter is all in as he stepped up his game and is redoing a 68 Mustang just for the SJRR. Fossets are probably in too as Greg just added a sweet BFN to his fleet. Daughter Tamara wants to go if school allows and sounds like you're in. Just want input from the masses as this event is for ALL of us.

Easter might have booking issues at the facilities too. That’s typically a big camping myself and i have to reserve sites early. March is our worst month of the year, windy. That’s usually when I book boat maintenance, surgeries, etc because.

We haven’t been to the SJRR in several years- anything requiring flights/rentals or 1k+ miles of driving can always be a little logistically tricky- so take my 2cents with a large grain of salt... we are still working out winter/spring travel plans for ‘20.

At least from a northerners perspective, part of the draw for this event is the warm temps that can’t be had anywhere else just yet. The 70deg+ water and air we’ve always had in Mar sure beats the frozen lakes we have at home. By the time mid-late April rolls around, we can usually get decent boating weather without having to travel quite so far south- which is a good bit easier and cheaper to do for those coming from a distance.

I am going to try to come this year if at all possible. The date change could work with my schedule. Would love to have the ‘64 SN on the river.

We won't be coming down this year so sort of irrelevant but we could never make an April date. Our business is seasonal and we start getting real busy in March so the earlier the better.

Thanks for some feedback gang. Unless we can find another place to house the masses as Parramores is pretty full the month of March, my vote is to move it to April. Going back to previous posts. I can't do April 2-5 as I have a wedding to attend. Would Easter Weekend work for everyone? I do realize its a 3 day weekend for most everyone and folks to celebrate Sunday with family and go to church to celebrate the risen Savior but if we postpone it to the third weekend its pushing the event too late.

If consensus says lets do it then I will call Parramores to find out if they'll give us the same deal as years past.

Who can do Easter Weekend. Heather and I are in!

I was hoping to get more feedback from those that actually GO on a regular basis. My guess is we'll do it Easter Weekend provided that Parramores will still accommodate us and will give the usual discount rate that weekend. Unfortunately we can't please everyone but the driving factor for next years Ruckus is availability of Cabins for us all to remain in one place and a rec hall to do the usual Sat night Cookout. Already working on a guest appearance from a Celebrity of sorts who found out about this gathering when I talked with him at the Regatta. I'll update all on the CCFan discount at the campground when I find out but pencil in April 9-12.

I guess spring breaks got moved back or bike week got moved back...is the trouble with dates. I doubt black college weekend is our date issues. Who knows what they have cooking to mess it all up. Fishing tournament perhaps..
