Don’t worry if you don’t have your poodle skirt and saddle shoes clean and ready for September 3 and 4— the gals in The Wonderelles will be wearing them for you as they perform classic oldies during Pine Mountain Club’s Fall Festival!

There will be food vendors and music all weekend, and the Bistro will be open.

Mambo Soul is all set to work your hips to the sounds of latin, soul, R&B and funk.

The Rocktops will bring back all the classic rock tunes, just the way you remember them. DJ Jim Johnson will spin fun with dancing, and Preston Smith will play old blues and swing.

Pine Mountain Club management says the event and the Condor Lounge will be open to the public.

This Year’s “Mountainized” Event

Fall Festival replaces Oktoberfest this year. According to committee member Sandy Browne, the economic recession has brought the need to downsize and “mountainize” the event.

“As this event has grown over the years, the cost of putting [it on] has increased. We have relied on additional sponsors and vendors to help offset the expenses…. Due to this economy, we are lacking sponsors for this year’s event and without the normal variety of outside vendors,” Browne said in letter to The Mountain Enterprise.

“Diverse food vendors will still be available. The usual activities for the kids, loads of great music and entertainment and the proximity of the clubhouse and Bistro will make this an exciting alternative, while saving lots of needed funds,” Browne wrote.

Come on out to enjoy the fun!

IRS, ABC Tracking

The Fall Festival is able to welcome the public this year because the association now has methods to comply with IRS rules to track income from nonmembers. The magstripe cards issued to members are a help in doing this.

A special permit for the Fall Festival and adjustments made in the association’s ABC license this year now allow the clubhouse to extend hospitality to nonmembers, serving wine and beverages to the public.
