Katemcy Rocks Closing - Pirate4x4.Com Bulletin Board

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 four more events scheduled before the end:
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)
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 this property for 8 years. We have meet 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

This is a big loss for all of us. Katemcy Rocks is one of Texas great spots not just for wheeling, but just to be there. Roundup does not have a reputation for the wheeling, but more for the people involved and the geography. Randy, Shain and family have always gone out of their way to make sure Roundup was a hit, and if it wasn't for Butch, Roundup would not be the hit it is today. My hats off to you guys, and I'll see you in a couple of weeks.

This is a HUGE loss. This place is very unique. Maybe when the new owner releases how much money it can bring in, he will consider opening it back up.

Randy says the one thing this guy has is the sentimental value of the land and money.

tell the wife that we'll all love her forever if she lets you go...having lived in a state with no (ok, well, one crappy little one) public areas to wheel and, at the time, no private places, i've really learned how special areas to enjoy our lifestyle is...nothing will stop me from attending this event now.

i know a lot of people in tlca/on mud/around the world don't have public land to wheel on, but losing a private wheeling area like this is a reason to help the states that do fight against land closures. consider this a very shameless pimp for everyone to jot down a few quick thoughts and send them off to representatives, senators, freakin' anybody reguarding our sport. many states are currently fighting land closures, but a great place to start would be tellico...there are threads here on mud.

rant off.

Yeah, I would think the Roundup would die with Katemcy. Having a Lone Star event in Oklahoma kinda defeats the purpose.

I know ICBM is a great ride and LSLC does it every year. Too bad it is at Gilmer :laughing:

JK, I thought Trees had more to do than Katemcy??
