August 20-23 2017 - Sweetwater TN - FROG Solar Eclipse Rally

This rally is full. If you have registered and not contacted The organizer please do so.
FROG 2017 Solar Eclipse FROG Rally

The Sweetwater TN Solar Eclipse rally is about 2/3 full.
Still some spots available!

RJ and Judy Studley will be your host for a TOTAL solar eclipse of 2 minutes 38 seconds.

**** Sweetwater KOA
**** (Exit 62 I-75)
**** 269 Murray's Chapel Road
**** Sweetwater, Tennessee 37874

Registration is now open for this total solar eclipse event that will occur on August 21 at 1:30 PM.

Sites are being held for FROGS until Dec. 1st. These sites include full hook-ups, deluxe sites and a few electric/water sites.

A one night non-refundable deposit of about $40 (depending on site) will hold your place.

This FROG rally will include a welcome ice cream social, an open field for solar viewing,* pot luck dinner, catered dinner, campfires and special viewing glasses to watch the eclipse safely.

To make your reservation call Sweetwater KOA at 865-213-3900. Ask for Chucky and let him know that you are registering for the FROG Rally.

After registering, send an email to RJ Studley at rstudley165@gmail.com or call 937-768-9121 to complete your registration and let him know you're coming.

Come and join us as our world goes dark in the middle of the day.

While the campground is in the direct path of the eclipse, visibility will depend on the weather. This event will occur regardless of the weather, and no cancellations will be made if the eclipse is not visible because of weather.


WARNING: Looking directly at a solar eclipse can cause severe eye damage, up to and including blindness. We plan to provide eclipse safety glasses, but FROG, Forest River, none of its affiliated companies, employees, and agents can be held responsible for any injury resulting from looking at the eclipse.

You may want to note that when you call that Chucky only works week days and is the one you need to talk too He is there from 8am to 1pm. Could not make my reservation today. Later RJD

Same here, our DGD will be almost 3 and this would be a great place for her besides the experience. Looks like they have a lot of fun stuff for the kiddos.

Hey RJ did you see the TN Valley train museum near there? Between that, the Lost Sea and the Sequoyah birthplace museum, there are some good educational experiences for DD.

Infamous is probably a poor choice of words since it means well known for some bad quality or deed.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.
