If the rally were today, you would not have needed a swimming pool. About 2 inches of rain in 40 minutes today with a little hail thrown in for good measure!!

Try the natural water park in Nantahala, NC.... cold water and easy rafting, great food and fun to watch kayakers. go on...you know you want to!
Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

I suggest those that want to do a group swim post on the message board in registration a time and where/when. Fun to go together. If I can get my wife to go....sheesh...125lbs and she complains shes fat.....puuuulease....Well I'm down 30lbs since march....
I then made the suggestion she'd never been to a rally! Remember the demographic! LOL!

Give a hand. http://www.akitas.org
but my wife is one of those who if they can't see the bottom of the lake won't swim in it...
that is why i was asking about a water park.
and so as to clarify, i was thinking wishfully about the weather cooperating, not about there not being a place to go in TN.
Just enjoying the ride.......
Hi, everyone. This is actually Hillman's daughter, and I live in Gray, just a short distance from the fairgrounds.
There have been several replies, and I would agree that The Wetlands in Jonesborough is a great pool / waterpark. It is open weekdays and Saturdays from 10 am - 6 pm and Sundays from 12 pm - 6 pm. The admission for adults is $11. However, if you wait until after 3pm, many people (including large groups of kids) leave and the admission is only half price.
Also, there is a swimming area at Boone Dam. It is free, and there are restrooms there. From Gray, you would take 75 toward the airport (east). After crossing 36 (Kingsport Highway) go a mile or two and you will go through an area of new bridge construction. Right after this bridge, you will turn right on Boone Dam Road. Go another couple miles and there is a swimming area on the right and an overlook at the end of the road.
I hope you all enjoy your visit!
