Thanks for all the good suggestions. (Please keep 'em coming!) I will be pretty much off line until February so will start working toward some of these things then.

Hi nancy,
thanks for all the work. When you are back online could you tell me about entertainment. I use to be a street entertainer in new York City. I got a couple of marionettes who think they are rock stars. Willing to entertain by the campfires.

That is SO COOL! Please, bring them. I'll talk to you about times by email. Jamie said (last year) that maybe he could bring a sound system. That would really help with trying to talk to 200 people. So Jamie... will that be possible?

Last year Pat and I found a Bigfot dealer in a town about 15 miles north of Bandon. I'm not sure where we were, but as we were getting ready to leave Terry and Dotty came walking up to us...Maybe they remember where we were, I can't, I suffer from CRS.

One thing I did remember from last year though....The wine tasting is held on Friday night, and it was loads of fun. Here's how it works...

We set up a table at the check-in where couples can bring a bottle of wine for a blind tasting.

The wine is wrapped in paper to cover the lable and the bottle is assigned a number.

On friday evening we all bring a snack or food that pairs well with wine (chocolate is good, so is cheese, crackers, chocolate, cookies, slices of apple, chocolate, hot wings, shrimp, chocolate and anything else you might think of) All the bottles will have been opened and will be on a table by color or type. Like red, white, or fruit.

Tasting cups (these are really small) are available. After sampling a wine, if you like it, write it's number on a slip of paper and put it in a collection box. You can put as many numbers in the box as you like. We will tally the results, reveal the wines that placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd and award the couples that brought the 3 winners a prize.

Now think about it, 100 trailers might equal 100 bottles and 200 tastees just could consume a 1/2 bottle each. We call it a meet and greet, an ice breaker or a darn good time.

BEER DRINKERS UNITE!

We can't let those highbrow wine drinkers pull one over on us I'm going to organize a Craft Beer Exchange on Thursday evening (time 7ish). And NO... Bud, Coors and Miller are not craft beer. But if names like Fat Tire, Moose Drool or Nitro (etc.) appeal to you...this "workshop" is for you!

It will work like this....bring a six pack of your favorite craft beer, the object is to stroll around the gathering area (main area behind Nancy's and Mike's camp site) and exchange one bottle/can of what you brought for something different. In the end, you'll have six different craft beers to take back to your campsite, chill down and enjoy. The best part is if you don't like it, you can pour it down the sink and no one is the wiser. If you like it, you now have a bottle/can to take home with you so you can find it in your area.

I'll bring some real beer drinkers food...like peanuts in the shell that we can crack open and throw the shells in the fire. If anyone cares to bring other "appetizers" like pickled eggs or popcorn that's okay too.

Great idea, Donna! A great ice-breaker, too.

And, those of us who drink both beer and wine get twice the fun!!!

Bbbbaaaaaaaaaaaad, Roger. Go to your room.

Great idea, Donna D! My husband will be so excited. (Now he'll have to find bottles of Hairy Eyeball beer to bring.)

Frederick read my lips...Billy Beer = eBay.

I saw an auction about six months ago where ONE unopened can of Billy Beer went for $47 Can't even imagine what an entire six pack might go for.

About the Billy Beer, Donna you took the words right out of my mouth.

The Beer idea sounds great, as we are not big wine drinkers.

I also just wanted to throw my 2 cents worth in on the work shop suggestions. Judy and I would love to see another dutchoven workshop. We were so busy visiting, that we missed last years.

Also I don't remember her name, but someone had a workshop for relaxation and stop smoking and I would love (and need to) stop smoking.

Also Judy and I were talking yesterday about the little gadgets that we all use in our trailers to make life and storage easier in the trailers. Maybe everyone could get together and share their trailer gadgets with each other. Just a thought.

We are game for just about anything you guys come up with.

Also, whoever is taking care of the name tags. I have about 20 or more plastic name tag covers with pins in the back and some blank white cards to go with them. Will be glad to donate them to the cause if someone will give me a name and address where I can send them to.

Also keep me in mind for simple grunt work. I am happy to help out. The only catch is, I am up for a full time job, 6 days a week and 8-10 hours a day. If I get that I will not be able to do much, but if I am not hired, send some work my way. Just remember I am not that smart on the computer but I do seem to learn fast once someone explains to me how to do it.

I'm writing everything down like mad, Ellen. Thanks for the good ideas and the volunteering for help!

Jamie, you can't just participate in the beer exchange and get out of bringing more ice wine!
