The 2023 Great Gatlinburg Getaway was fantastic in every sense of the word. Fantastic roads, very nice hotel, great people, spectacular weather! To borrow a phrase “I pity the fool” that has to follow that event....

Well THE FOOL has arrived!! Announcing the 2024 Prowler event:


(** Special Thanks to Tami and her daughter Jamie for the Fantastic Logo.)


Prowlin' the Ozarks

October 20-26, 2024

Best Western Inn of the Ozarks

Eureka Springs, Arkansas

To make reservations, call 1-800-998-9620 and tell them you are in the “Prowler Group”

The host hotel is Inn of the Ozarks, a Best Western Hotel with plenty of parking, including trailers ( http://www.innoftheozarks.com/). It is an older hotel but very clean. It hosts many car and motorcycle groups ever year. A wash area will be provided, including towels to dry vehicles. Parking lot get togethers are permitted. It has a good restaurant on site for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Meals are NOT included in the room rate. It is a 2 story hotel and does NOT have elevators so if you need a first floor room tell them when you book your reservation. If you don't have mobility problems, please tell them a second floor room is fine. We have 60 rooms reserved at this time. If you are thinking about coming, please make your reservation early. You can always cancel. The group rate for a king or two queen standard room is $90 Sun-Wed (weekdays), $126 Thur-Sat (weekends). Animals are permitted for an additional fee. For those with motorhomes, there are RV parks nearby, including Wanderlust RV Park ( http://wanderlustrvpark.com), Kettle Campground ( http://kettlecampground.net), etc.

While the itinerary is still being finalized, the plan is to drive some beautiful roads in and around northwest Arkansas, including the famous Pig Trail. We will have one day to explore Eureka Springs which shares similarities with Gatlinburg. It has an eclectic downtown area, watering holes, a haunted historic hotel, and if you so desire, an opportunity to attend the world famous Great Passion Play, an outdoor theater depicting the last week in the life of Jesus. One day we'll travel to Branson, stop for a paddle wheel cruise boat with lunch and a show, then explore Branson which has a multitude of things to do and see. And one day travel to Bentonville, the home of Sam Walton, and see the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. There should be a lot to see and do in and around northwest Arkansas.

Please keep in mind this part of Arkansas is still a rural area. If you are expecting a luxury resort, please pass on attending this event. The gas stations are smaller, bathrooms can be sparse, restaurants are smaller and don't accommodate huge crowds. Most of our evening meals will be on your own in smaller groups. There are multiple smaller restaurants around town. The major highway through town is a two lane road. But there are many car and motorcycle groups that flock to this area for a reason. And even though still a few weeks from peak, the fall colors should be gorgeous.

Quite honestly, it's impossible to compete with such a great event as in Gatlinburg. And as everyone knows, Steve is a rock star! I am NOT! Have lower expectations, MUCH lower! But I think Arkansas will impress you. At least that's my hope. There will be much more information to follow as we continue to work on the details.

And a very special thank you to some people who very graciously stepped up to help make this event possible, including Tami and Ken Fischer and Robert Arledge. They have been instrumental in helping with planning, scheduling routes, advice, etc. And a special thanks to Steve Clark, who has offered his help once again. Steve will be helping with attendance lists, collecting fees, general advice, artistic skills, etc! And finally, thanks to Ed Monahan who has graciously offered to handle the complaint department.


(In a nod to Steve's penchant for alliteration, I almost named this event the Amazing Arkansas Adventure or A3 . It would have gone with his Wild Wonderful West Virginia or W3 or Great Gatlinburg Getaway or G3. But I was lazy and stuck with Prowlin' the Ozarks instead. If you don't like it, complain to Ed.)


EVENT FEE: to be determined. Continue to check back


Please let me know your name(s), state, car color and POA screen name when you book your room. You can post a reply here or send me a PM, or email druprowler@gmail.com. Also, I NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS for when we send out registration fee statements. PM me or send via email Thanks

Tentative itinerary for event, subject to change or revision.


PIG TRAIL. Voted #2 best ride in America by USA Today. Twenty four mile route through the Boston and Ozark mountains. Will do lunch and then return with a little variation on the return trip. http://ozarkrides.com/pig%20trail.htm


EXPLORING EUREKA SPRINGS. May do a fairly short ride in the morning, including a stop by the famous Thorncrown Chapel http://thorncrown.com/ then the remainder of the day to explore Eureka Springs ( http://www.arkansas.com/eureka-springs and http://www.visiteurekasprings.com/) It is reminiscent of Gatlinburg. There is a downtown area with lots of shops within walking distance. It has an artsy, eclectic vibe. Parking can be a challenge but is available in some lots for a price. Or you can ride the trolley that runs through town. http://eurekatrolley.org/ It is $6 for all day. There is a stop right by the hotel. Up on the hill is the famous historic Crescent Hotel built in 1886. It is reported to be haunted and have haunted tours available. There is a great little pizza place on the top floor with a view for miles. After the day exploring Eureka Springs, for those interested, we can attend the famous Great Passion Play. It is an outdoor amphitheater telling the story of the last week in the life of Jesus Christ. http://www.greatpassionplay.org/ There is a restaurant on site that serves a buffet style dinner before the show. Cost of the show is $30 per person, buffet is $16.89 per person (prices for 2023 schedule, not available yet for 2024 season).

ARKANSAS SCENIC DRIVING. Driving some very scenic roads through what is referred to as the Arkansas Tail of the Dragon and Grand Canyon. Stop for lunch then return to Eureka Springs.

BRANSON MISSOURI. We'll travel towards Branson but first stop will be the Showoat Branson Belle, a paddle wheel boat sailing on Table Rock Lake, serving lunch and featuring a show as well. Cost of ticket is $57 per person (2023), if there are over 50 people then it will be $52 per person. http://www.silverdollarcity.com/showboat-branson This is a 2 hour cruise. Afterwards, we'll drive a short distance into Branson where everyone is on their own to explore. There are shows, museums, restaurants, and Silver Dollar City, a theme park and more. http://www.silverdollarcity.com/ As far as show times and schedules, these websites will tell which shows are available http://www.bransonshows.com/ , http://www.bransontourismcenter.com/shows/2024 Everyone will return to Eureka Springs at their leisure.

BENTONVILLE ARKANSAS. Home of Sam Walton, we'll visit Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, an internationally famous art museum. http://crystalbridges.org/ Admission is free. We can lunch at their onsite restaurant. There are also art hiking trails on the grounds. For those interested, downtown Bentonville features the Walmart Museum, Sam Walton's original five and dime store among other attractions. http://www.visitbentonville.com/ And for anyone who follows HGTV's Fixer To Fabulous, their store, Marrs Mercantile, is in Centerton AR, just a couple of miles west of Bentonville.


LAST NIGHT BANQUET. We have reserved a room in the convention center on site where we will have a farewell dinner. A cash bar will be available.


There may be a couple of alternative trips if there's a group that would like to do something different than what's scheduled for the day. Still working on the details and not guaranteed at this point.


Thorncrown Chapel

Great Passion Play

Scenic Driving

Branson

Crystal Bridges Art Museum, Bentonville

Good deal! Will FL be the most represented state for two years in a row? Will the Ontario group overtake them? Inquiring minds want to know these important things. Its a whole lot easier planning an event when you have an idea of how many will be in attendance. If you are planning on making the 2024 adventure, please chime in and we'll get you on the attendees list.

"Quite honestly, it's impossible to compete with such a great event as in Gatlinburg. And as everyone knows, Steve is a rock star! I am NOT! Have lower expectations, MUCH lower!"
BUT, if you need medical help or advice, Joe would be a much better choice.

Looks great Joe. I am a little concerned about the pool, that guy looks way overdressed but for late Oct it may be appropo.

We probably will be there. I will ask Sandy if it is okay and get back to you.

I checked with Sandy in Gatlinburg. She said okay. I'm penciling you in! Besides, you're in charge of the complaint department.


I'm always happy to pencil in you and Linda as well Rich. Just let me know.

Do to poor planning (date) by my favorite doctor we will not be able to attend.. (just kidding Doc .. I know you tried.) But we will be wishing the best for this trip .. After Gatlinburg we were wore out with all the fun and this one is guaranteed to be the same.. With Robert and others on board to help this one should be one for the ages.. Remember guys and gals it’s location in the middle of the country should provide a wide variety of peeps from many states.. And after having met 10 new couples from last time it is the most exciting part of these trips…
Good luck guys and we will be cheering you on.. Jim & Pat..😁😁

I heard a rumor that he’s renting his block of rooms out for $20 a night more. I’m guessing he’s trying to pay for the trip. I heard this via the internet. But you know you can’t believe everything you read there. 🤪

No No No Guys....Rod has booked three rooms because it seems he plans on having three times as much fun as anybody else.
One Room simply can't contain all the fun he intends to have.
