Pie.  All for only $10 on the Pre-registration form. Allen is a proffesional chef with Katy G Catering and event design in Birmingham. The banquet should not be missed!


Are dogs allowed? We love dogs but unfortunately they won’t be allowed.


Is there plenty of camping? Yes. The site has many acres of flat field camping. It’s reminiscent of the old TAG Sequoya site where you could see every one of your friends and where they are camped.  There are many spots along the tree line which offer shade but as a whole it will be open field camping. We would urge you to bring tarps, pop-ups or other portable shade options.


Are there RV hook-ups? Yes, there are many. From full water/power/sewage sites to sites with power only. Consult the pre-registration form for contact information concerning them. Note: the power sites are located all along one side of the camping field along the tree line. The areas with power are perfect for truck and tent camping if you want to enjoy a power plug at your camp during the event.  They are more than 60 spots.


Are fires allowed? Yes, leave no trace fire are allowed. Bring a burn platform or barrel and have a strategy to leave your site just as you found it. Avoid burn scars in the grass.

Will there be recycling at SERA? Yes! The Sewannee Mountain Grotto has offered to handle the Recycling. Aluminum, plastic, cardboard and batteries will be accepted.

More coming!....
