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 19-22Lone 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

Thats rediculous! Talk about one of the best places to wheel in texas, PERIOD. Sad to see it go. Maybe the owner will come to his senses and re-lease it.

I guess I will have to get off my ass and go to Trees now. Man, I love katemcy. Love it.

Man.

I was in on cutting Kate's Black Sheep and Klunatic. What a blast we had cutting those trails. I sure will miss them. I WILL be there before the end.

Sucks A$$ that is one of my favorite places to wheel and one of the closest. This should be a lesson for all of us on places where our letters can make a differance!! Send a letter be proactive. I know that would not have helped here but we need to quit losing places to wheel:mad3:. Here in TX they are few and FAR between. I'm sure Randy and Shane are plenty bumd out. Great job while it lasted guys! Thanks for a great place to wheel!

Guess we nee to plan a Pirate get together for a send off perhaps? I've never been, but had planned on going when I could get my rig running. Got a few friends around Altus that go quite a bit. I will make an appearance before it closes.!!

Maybe your club can make friends with the landowner and work out a deal for permission to ride?

That's the only way we can wheel in the Northeast besides Raucsh.

I feel like my dog just died..........That sucks.

Hope something else comes up that the Kruse's and Chapman's are a part of......They are great people.

Always look forward to seeing them.
