Katemcy closing

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
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

Randy, Shain and families. We will hate to see you go. Having the Summer Run @ Katemcy Rocks each year has been a blast. I just wish I would have been able to spend more time wheeling with you guys.

We will see you June 13th.
Kenny

The Summer Run is @ Satans Playground this year.

I had already spoken with Shain earlier this year and reserved the June 13th 14th weekend for Texas4x4.org. Man I am gonna miss wheeling there.

I can't imagine the town of Mason being too pleased when they hear of it. The number of folks that come through there on any given weekend solely due to wheeling has to be considerable. Not that it will change anything...

I can't tell you how sad I am to see this. Just a reminder of what can happen, even in Texas, where 95% of all acreage is privately owned. I am so grateful I got to go there with Old Goat a couple of years ago, it was my favorite. Katemcy was so ruggedly beautiful and unique. Texas is so large that everyone has to really dedicate a lot of time and money just to get anywhere to wheel. It's a lesser place without Katemcy.

Bummer

I sure had some of my very best wheeling memories happen there, even when Stretch and I had to drive 7 hours back during the week to rescue Rusty. Mr Kruse met us at the gate and we got to visit with him for a couple of hours about wheeling and other things. I will never forget the great times we all had there, Richard and Benji and Bruiser and Xanthias cooking, the videos by Hatch at night, one weekend only Limey showed up so me and Jonas( Donuts1) wheeled with him, a crazy weekend, scared the crap out of Jonas on a ledge. ALWAYS good wheeling with great folks!!! Really going to miss it.
Thanks Randy and the crew for a great place and fun times.
