Christmas Camping at Lake Lanier Islands

**ONLINE REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS CLOSED. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT US AT SOLAROSINFO@GMAIL.COM**

 

We have a some tremendous members in this group. One of which is the owner/operator of Lake Lanier Islands. Mike has generously invited us to his property for a weekend of casual fun in December.

We will have our own campground, with electricity and restroom facilities. This campground is closed for the winter so this means that we will have our very own private area. We also plan to have a group dinner at the Bullfrogs restaurant on Saturday night. Following dinner Saturday, we will all get in our trucks and create a convoy through millions of legendary lights that Lake Lanier Islands is known for every year. Even if you can’t camp, feel free to come out for dinner, lights and camaraderie.

The campground is adjacent to the old, shut down golf course on the island and Mike has offered it to us a fun “playground” for our trucks 

Here are the details for this FREE event, only available to SOLAROS:

  • Camping: Friday, December 8th thru Sunday, December 10th
  • Dinner:  Bull Frog’s Bar and Grille inside the Legacy Lodge (7000 Lanier Islands Parkway, Buford, GA 30518) on Saturday, December 9th at 5:0pm. Everyone pays for their own dinner and we’ll have a reserved section just for our group.

Every year SAE features an auction with items donated by vendors sold off and the proceeds donated to charity. For the past few years SOLAROS has been proud to support the Towns and Union County branch of Habitat for Humanity. Last year through generosity of our donors and the enthusiasm of our bidders, we were able to donate $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity.
