Extras:

“Photo Contest” by Eric S.
Enter your best photograph that has a fiberglass trailer in it. Stay tuned for more information about categories.

“Golf Ball Horseshoe Tournament” by Earl A.

Children's Workshops & Activities
  • How to Travel with Children & Grandchildren
  • Making Travel Fun
  • Campfire Games
  • Other events that will involve the children and teens in our group

Nature Hike along the Coast

Kite Flying

Plein Air Watercolor


Would you please help out?

I really do need more ideas and more volunteers. We hold workshops 3x (not counting the afternoon for the wonderful Dutch oven demo you do, Linda). So we could use some more choices plus we need some things for kids.

Kids could certainly join us for the Golf Ball Horseshoe Tournament, Thursday afternoon. Just a suggestion - how about a kid teaming up with a parent???

That's a great idea, Earl. I'll put that in the schedule. Thanks!

I am not sure how many kids to expect, but I would be glad to volunteer my husband and myself to sponsor a "summer fun Olympics" for kids: lots of fun events (cracker eating/whistling contest, horseshoes--I found a plastic set so they're not so heavy---paddle ball, hula hoop competition, water balloons, and maybe a giant clothes relay).
We'll have enough activities to get everyone over the age of 4 or 5 involved, and have lots of goofy prizes, so everyone wins something! If we need to do several workshops for the kids, we could also do a rock painting class at another time.

Teresa, you are a life-saver! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Could you please send me an email at ORGathering[at]watsonmountain.com so I can get you in my records and so I can send you a list of the number and ages of kids when we get closer to the date of the Gathering?

I love both ideas, by the way! You might have some adults who want to come to the rock painting class, too. That's a LOT of fun. This is one of my favorite books about painting on rocks.

Animal Painting on Rocks (book)

Nancy, I usually carry along my small wood lathe, and assuming it doesn't rain, I could put on a demo of bowl turning. If it rains, my cast iron lathe would not fare well, so would have to bag it.

If that works for you, let me know,

Mike

I think that would be interesting, Mike. Thank you! Would it work if you worked under someone's canopy if, God forbid, it was drizzly? If not, I could just put (canceled if raining) beside the event.

Nancy

I am doing the ice cream class for kids and have misplaced the book that had the recipe. I know a couple of people got it from me before. Could someone supply it Please!!!! if not I know the basic ingredients and may have to wing it. Who knows we may get some exotic new frozen dish.
