From my posting to Scampers Yahoo group:
I apologize for being away from the forums - this being retired stuff keeps me BUSY... busier than a politician accepting bribes. lol
The Northern California 2010 gathering IS the weekend of September 17-19 at McArthur-Burney Falls State Park. Some folks will arrive earlier - Michele and I have not yet decided if we are going up Tues the 14th or Wed the 15th. And we will probably scoot home Monday the 20th (She has a bookclub meeting Tuesday AM).
Keep in mind that, as in most California State Parks it is DRY camping
electricity OR water at the camp sites. If someone wants to attend but has a concern about the trailer battery
being able to run the whole weekend, I believe that will be a couple of generators there, and I will bring my battery
charger too to speed up the process. Just send me an email ( aweinel@...
) so I can get some handle on the situation.
As far as the schedule -
Friday from 2-5 we have a game time scheduled - bring your favorite games. (I will have my cribbaage board... oh ya!)
Friday @7 PM - Dessert Pot Luck - please bring a gooooooodie to share.
Following the potluck, a campfire and "sing along" - ability to sing "on key" is NOT required.
Ladder Golf tourney @ 10:00
Trailer Open house @ 1:30 (till 3:30)
Potluck Dinner @ 5:30 (Again, please bring something to share. Main dish, side dish, salad or whatever. USUALLY it works out.)
Another campfire / social gathering immediately following dinner
***Is there any interest in a short non-denominational church service Sunday morning? If so, please let me know and we will add one to the schedule.
Breakfast pot luck @ 9:00 (please bring something to share...)
CHECKOUT TIME is NOON.
Please bring some fire wood to share
IF YOU HAVE A 6' TABLE (or two) please bring it along.
Be sure to bring something to share for each potluck
Remember to bring your own plates, dinnerware, beverages etc.
MOST IMPORTANT - Please bring a nicely wrapped "white elephant" - there WILL BE prizes. So this is the perfect chance to "re-gift" that what-ever-it-was that you got and ... well... it didn't really work for you. Creativity is encouraged. If you HAVE to go buy something, PLEASE PLEASE do NOT spend more than a few bucks. That is the reason God made Dollar Stores.
If you have ANY quesstions at all, please let me know - either here in the forum or via e-mail...whichever works best for you.
