Fall 2017 Rendezvous & Reunion
AGLCA's 2017 Fall Rendezvous
October 16 - 19, 2017!
The annual Fall Rendezvous is being held again at Joe Wheeler State Park in Rogersville, AL October 16-19, 2017.
Registration is now open and the cost is $339/person. Don't wait to register. This event will sell out. Please familiarize yourself with the registration procedures at the bottom of this page.
As usual, this year's Rendezvous will include a series of educational seminars about the Great Loop route and how to plan and implement your adventure. Whether you are a newbie or a veteran or somewhere in between, the seminars and sessions will offer just the right balance of information for everyone to learn and enjoy. There will also be plenty of opportunities to swap Looping stories and experiences with others that love the Loop as much as you do! In addition to the seminars and social time, there will be time to visit the Ship's Store and the exhibit area to learn about the latest boats and products/services for the boating industry. Some vendors will highlight their offerings in more detail during the 20-minute "Show and Tell" sessions sprinkled throughout each day. The ever-popular Looper Crawls, where you have a chance to board some of the boats at the marina owned by other Loopers, and Vessel Safety Checks will be held in the afternoons at the marina and Looper introductions will be conducted at the various meals during the event. We'll even throw in a kayak race and dinghy race just for fun! To see an example of what to expect, see last year's agenda. The 2017 agenda will be similar.
Once again, the Rogersville Chamber of Commerce is organizing a fun and exciting outing for the night on your own at the Rendezvous. Attendees have the option to attend a polo match and dinner at nearby Peytona Farms!
Always a member favorite, Joe Wheeler State Park offers spectacular fall scenery overlooking the beauty and serenity of Wheeler Lake, just off the main Tennessee River. The 2,550-acre resort park offers a stunning waterfront lodge with restaurant and convention facilities, a championship 18-hole golf course and clubhouse, a full-service marina with permanent and overnight docking slips, modern and primitive camping, lakeside cottages, cozy cabins and a rustic group lodge. In addition to all the water activities, the park offers hiking and mountain biking trails that provide some of the best scenery north Alabama has to offer.
