WBKR’s Camp Country Announces New Dates and Camper Giveaway
WBKR's Camp Country is moving! We were originally scheduled to host Camp Country 2020 on Friday, July 31st and Saturday, August 1st. However, we have made the decision to move for a couple of reasons. Obviously, we're being proactive and mindful of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but we also have the opportunity to do something incredibly cool for our 5th anniversary event in conjunction with the start of Fall camping season. We're teaming up with Owensboro RV to give away a camper. And we're going to do it at Camp Country- which is now scheduled to take place Friday, September 25th and 26th.
Complete details about our camper giveaway are coming soon, but we are going to spend Camp Country Weekend at Diamond Lake Campground and Resort giving YOU the chance to get qualified to win this- a brand new Forest River Wildwood.
We'll also have plenty of opportunities for you to get qualified on the air here at WBKR.
This year's Camp Country will be a combination of popular returning events and some new additions. We'll again be having the WBKR Fishing Tournament on Friday evening, with great prizes up for grabs (shout out to Marshal and Vicki Graham for agreeing to host the tournament). There, as in years past, will be a cornhole tournament on Saturday morning and a big game show Saturday night. Plus, check this out!
And, of course, our friends from the Angels for Ashley Cooking Team will be with us raising money for St. Jude!
Plus, brand new this year will be an event honoring the fact that September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It's called Sailing for St. Jude. Inspired by Diamond Lake's annual Cardboard Boat Regatta, we're having our own cardboard boat race. Teams will be invited to build a cardboard boat and compete for the chance to win bragging rights and a key that could unlock the camper from Owensboro RV!
In addition to Sailing (or Sinking) for St. Jude, we will transform our annual WBKR Scavenger Hunt into a fun, interactive mystery called The Great Camper Caper! We'll be sending you out around the campground for the chance to solve a mystery and snag a key for our grand prize camper giveaway.
The complete, official schedule of events for Camp Country 2020 is coming soon. We will have a printable version for you in a few days here at WBKR.com and the WBKR app. Plus, our friends at Diamond Lake Campground and Resort will have copies for you in the office as well.
More details are forthcoming, but go ahead and mark it down! Save the NEW dates for 2020.
IMPORTANT: If you were already booked for the original Camp Country dates, the Diamond Lake staff will call you with information about rebooking for September 25th and 26th. Please do NOT call the office. The Diamond Lake staff will be making calls this week to get you taken care of.
