Welcome to Convention Tuesdays! Every Tuesday, I will feature and highlight conventions happening during the upcoming weekend in Alabama, or within short driving distances from Alabama.
September 7-9 — OutsideCon — Burns, Tennessee
Outside is always held the the weekend after Labor Day of September (2018 its -7th, 8th and 9th). It is held at Montgomery Bell State Park, where Ernest went to Camp. It is hosted by Robert Embler of Fort Campbell and many of his long time friends. There is music, revelry, sports, camping (for those who want to), and food thanks to one friend in particular and her spouse, without whom it would not have that homey touch.
Since this is held in a State Park there is also water play available, hiking, and nature in abundance.
Our event features the following elements:
- An Archery Competition (begins at 3pm-ish Saturday at the shooting range)
- A Fishing Competition (begins at Friday, usually around 3 or 4 pm and ends Saturday at sundown)
- Late Night Double Feature Picture Show – Presented by www.hallowcon.com/HallowCon. JoeDog and Donna have taken the reins and not much has changed about the pavillion. Movies will be two that fit well with Both OutsideCon and HallowCon. (2018 will feature the Dr. Who 50th Anniversary Special; “Unspecialized” Star Wars and Earnest Goes to Camp-Weather permitting will have seats available on the lawn)
- And many parties
