Hockey Camp!

Tuesday, January 12th 2010

One of the hardest freezes in years resulted in 4-7 inches of frozen ice across Lake Eden. That’s right, it was allllll skateable and walkable. So we broke out the skates, sticks, and pucks and played some good ol’ fashioned hockey right here at Rockmont. Enjoy the pics!

Winter Solstice - December at the Farm

Monday, December 21st 2009

Let it snow, let it snow! With just four days left before the official start of winter and one week before Christmas, we had our first winter storm at the Rockmont Farm. A blanket of snow over a foot deep made the Homestead look like a winter wonderland. By the actual Solstice just a few days later the snow had ended, the sky was blue and the su...

The Roadie Awards

Monday, December 7th 2009

The fall travel season is over for me (I made it!), and after 28 shows and nearly 18,000 miles on the ol’ Prius, it’s time to reflect on what was great about all that traveling. The best part was getting to see and meet everyone; the hosts, the kids, the staff, friends, family, and to share in their lives in meaningful ways. Thank yo...

October/November at the Rockmont Farm

Tuesday, November 10th 2009

The month of October saw the farm turn from the late summer colors of greens to the autumn colors of browns and yellows. We had our first hard frost on October 17 – there was snow up on the high mountains north of camp the next morning! This meant the end of the last of the summer crops. All of the popcorn and field corn were harvested and...

Another week, another round of shows for the Rockmont Road Warriors. Last week we were in Apollo Beach, FL (host Nancy Mellon was a very gracious host and a great cook to boot!), the Paris family hosted in Orlando, and the Hutto’s opened up their home in Jacksonville for the 2nd straight year. As always, it is a blessing to see these fami...

Nashville and the Camp Family

Tuesday, October 27th 2009

The camp connection is a great thing, the community and the friends that you make over the years that follows you around and comes up at the most random times. I was never in a fraternity in college, but I feel that Rockmont is the real brotherhood I am a part of. When I was in Nashville last Thursday for a camper show (a big thank you to Marian...

Thomasville and Dothan - Small Towns, Big Shows

Wednesday, October 14th 2009

Life on the road continues as we make our way through Georgia and Alabama, telling the Rockmont story! Monday brought us to Thomasville, GA and the home of the Beverly’s. Charnie, Max, Max. We had our biggest showing of the year so far, with 13 boys there! The energy was great, everybody had lots of good questions, and the spinach dip was ...
