Page I O--E;lle otab0;ttaS l/imrS--September 25, 2003 Watoga State Park to host Road Trek Rally at Riverside Campground Sept 29 - Oct. 3 Watoga State Park will host a "'Road Trek" camper rally at Riverside Campground from September 29 through October 3. "'A Road Trek is a custom built camper constructed on a Dodge van or Chevy van chassis." State Parks District Administrator Robert Beanblos- som said. "'These tblks gather in a different state each year to see the sights, compare notes and enjoy each other's company. This year it's West Virginia's turn." Events planned for the rally include a ride to Bald Knob on the Cass Scenic Railroad, a visit to the National Radio Astrono- my Observatory in Green Bank, and the opportunity to visit many of the other attractions in Pocahontas County, such as Droop Mountain Battlefield and Beartown State Park, Cranberry Glades, the Falls of Hills Creek, the Greenbrier River Trail and Pearl Buck's Birthplace. "Watoga is holding 30 camp- sites at the Riverside Camp- ground for the event, including all electric sites," Beanblossom stated. "'This will be a break from our usual routine at River- side. Normally, we don't reserve campsites after Labor Day, but for a large event like this we made an exception." The Beaver Creek Camp- ground will be available for other campers that require electric hookups as well as at least 20 non-electric campsites at the Riverside Campground during the event. The rally ends Friday morning, October 3, and routine camping will resume for the weekend. For more information, con- tact Watoga State Park at 1-800- CALL-WVA, or call direct at (304) 799-4087. Bridge Day slated for October 18 Recognized as one of the country's top 100 festivals, New River Gorge Bridge Day will take place this year on Sat- urday, October 18. 'Bridge Day is unique in that it is the only day visitors may walk across the bridge, rappellers are allowed to descend and ascend from fixed ropes, and BASE jumpers can parachute from the railing. Four hundred BASE jump- ers are expected this year and, according to Jason Bell, BASE coordinator, "We're adding a new element to Bridge Day this year. We're in the process of purchasing a 16' commercial aluminum diving board for our more experienced jumpers. I've always wanted to make a BASE jump by springing myself over the edge like an Olympic diver, and now that we have the cap- ability to determine what the exit area will consist of, we're going to make it happen this year.'" Also in the works are a landing accuracy contest with cash prizes, a BASE jumping video festival, and some special jumps that should make for an exciting Bridge Day 2003 for both jumpers and spectators. Underneath the bridge, the Highline will return this year and will be open to the general public. Retired Army Sergeant Lucian Dean and his rigging team will rig the same highline as last year allowing the high- line rider to slide approximately seven hundred feet down a rope attached to the Bridge's catwalk to the Fayette Station Road below. Anyone-interested in doing the highline should call 304-574-1037 for the ride of a lifetime! eunion eport Grimes Reunion The annual Grimes Reunion was held on Sunday, August 3, 2003, at Mill Run.
