Katemcy Closing!

Just found out that Katemcy Rocks will be closing in June :cry: :cry: :cry:

KATEMCY ROCKS CLOSES

All good things must come to an end. So it goes with Katemcy Rocks. We learned last week that we are losing our lease effective June 30, 2009. The trust department that has handled Jack Hays estate notified us that the property was not going to be leased to us again. The son who inherited the property has decided he wishes to use the property exclusively for his family, as is his right. They may eventually build a home on the property.

All the scheduled events we have listed before July will be held as planned. Events scheduled after July will be moved up if time and logistics work out. We will be posting them up on our website as things come together.

We are actively working on other possible land opportunities, but these are distant chances. Consequently, if you want to wheel at Katemcy before its closed, you need to do so on or before June 13-14, 2009. We currently have five more events scheduled before we must close:

1. March 19-22 Lone Star Landcruiser's Round up (closed event)
2. April 24-26 Lone Star Early Bronco's Roundup (closed event)
3. May 2-3 Baertrax's & Trail Duty's Customer Appreciation runs (open event)
4. May 23-25 Memorial Day Weekend Blowout (our last one - open event)
5. June 13-14 Texas 4x4.org's “Summer Run V” (open event – the last at Katemcy)

If there is enough interest, we may cancel our Moab Easter Jeep Safari trip and schedule one more open event on April 4-5. As it stands, Texas 4x4.org's “Summer Run V” will be our last event at Katemcy Rocks.

It has been an honor and privilege to wheel with you on this property for the past eight (8) years. We have met so many friends through the years and hope to see all of you back here at the Rocks before we close.

Happy Trails,

Randy, Shain, Pam, Casey, Jessica, Juanita, Jerry and Elaine

That sucks. :( Especially with all the closures happening on public lands, losing great private venues like Katemcy hurts even more. Hopefully, they'll be able to find another piece of land.

Bummer Phil. Time to move to CA or NV. We won't tell them about your guns
Blow off responsibilities, growing up, and all the boring things in life and do something cool.

Phil...is it open during the week or just on those dates posted? Since I'm passing through TX, it would be nice to stop by there and do some wheeling while it's still open.

Man, that really sucks. Katemcy has been on my list of places I really wanted to hit at some point ever since the first pics I ever saw you post from there.
