|Trips to Six Flags Over Georgia and Whitewater Park||Throughout 2018, in-season (March-December)||
I have a Diamond membership for all Six Flags parks, as well as free parking, a season Flash Pass and a season dining pass within Georgia, so this is a good,
relatively inexpensive way to have some fun, get out of the house and get some exercise, and get wet during the long, hot summer!
If you're interested in coming along or meeting up, whether on your own pass or as a guest of mine (there are some freebie days and discounts available), contact me!
|Georgia Renaissance Festival, Fairburn GA (plus drum-circle and gathering after the end of each week's Faire)||Weekends, mid-April through early June||
Once again this year I'm "working" at the drum booth (Spice Traders Music), primarily on Sundays after noon. It's
located at the foot of the hill near the middle of the Faire -- right across the creek from my old, sadly departed
employer, Starfire Swords. Generally, you can listen for the sound of our drums. :)
I'll also be participating in the traditional drum-circle, fire-spinning and gathering at La Fiesta restaurant in Union City on Sunday nights after Faire.
|First rescheduled trip of the summer to Blue Hole Ocoee in Tennessee for swimmin', snorkeling and free-diving||Tuesday and possibly Wednesday, May 22 and 23||
Can't wait! Fresh mountain water that's usually clear and reasonably warm, underwater
tunnels you can swim through...it's a great place for a summertime escape, except not on weekends.
Message me on FB or email me if you want to meet up or maybe ride along. Here's hoping it isn't chilly or rainy, and the water isn't running high.
|Tyr, Orphaned Land, Ghost Ship Octavius and Aeternam at the Masquerade||Memorial Day||This tour features two bands I've previously sponsored for the ProgPower USA festival (Tyr and Orphaned Land) and a band who were SUPERB (as expected) on the 70K Tons of Metal cruise back in February, so I'm hoping to attend. Sadly, this will mean I will likely miss that night's post-RenFaire drum jam in Union City. Really hate that.|
|Further roadtrips up to Blue Hole Ocoee swimming hole at Ocoee Whitewater Center, near Ducktown, TN||Alternating weeks during the summer, usually on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; schedule is now posted!||The annual tradition dating back to c. 1994 continues, with roughly biweekly, two-day trips up to this most-excellent swimming hole in the Tennessee mountains. Fresh mountain water that's usually clear and reasonably warm, underwater tunnels you can swim through...it's a great place for a summertime escape. (But don't go on weekends, when TVA flows the river high for rafting and kayaking.)|
|LibertyCon 31, downtown Chattanooga TN||June 29 - July 1, 2018||This is my first year attending. Should be fun since it's a smaller literary-focused con. It has sold out since I purchased my membership, as they "cap" their attendance. Hotel has a nice indoor pool, too. :)|
|Dragon*Con 2018, downtown Atlanta||Labor Day Weekend, 2018||32 years of DragonCon, and I've been there from before the very beginning. I'll be staying at the Sheraton with its glorious pool.|
|ProgPower USA XIX, Center Stage Atlanta||September 2018||Following immediately after DragonCon again this year, this is the best indoor metal fest in the U.S. I've attended every one so far, and have sponsored bands' appearances at ProgPower since ProgPower USA III.|
|"Regular, cheap" cruise to the Eastern Caribbean||October, 2018||Less than $100/day including all fees and taxes -- in a balcony room -- and four great ports! Can't wait! Should be awesome!|
