Happy weekend NOGgers. We're just less than two weeks to Spring NOG! Fun times ahead.
I thought I'd go ahead and post the schedule and give you some of my thoughts on other issues.
I'll be in the park on Wednesday (20th) and I'm going to check with the Park Hosts to see if we can use the Shelter. However, if the weather looks like it will be dry, the Friday and Saturday night activities are at my site 53A. We may not know where we'll land until a couple of hours before the start of any activity. If I'm not at my site, I'll post a notice on the door of my trailer when we know more.
Don't forget your name tags. We have lots of new people. Let's make it easy on them. Remember when you were the newbie? Trying to remember peoples names is uncomfortable!
THE Schedule of events such as it is... This is the Spring NOG. While it's referred to as the N
athering, I kinda prefer N
Daytime hours are completely unscheduled. Feel free to do what you wish, sleep in, hike, go to town, play cards, sit-and-visit, etc., etc. As far as trailer tours, nothing scheduled for that either. If you see folks sitting outside, stop and chat and ask to see their trailer. I've found most folks have an informal open house.
DON'T FORGET TO BRING/WEAR A NAME TAG.
- No-host dinner-on-a-stick roasting fire going at my site (53A) on Friday night. This is not a potluck, bring everything you need. Fire will be roaring in the NOG tub, come by anytime after 6:00pm. If you have a stick or two
of firewood to share at the NOG tub, that would be grand. And the biggy:
CRAFT BEER EXCHANGE
This is an "opener" event.
Bring a six pack of craft beer, trade one bottle or can for a different kind.
Everyone is welcome at anytime to anything. If you're not a beer drinker that's perfectly okay. Please bring your lawn chair and join us anyway. Beer/food is secondary to the good times we'll have around the NOG tub.
- Saturday potluck at my site (53A) 6pm SHARP.
Bring a food item to share that feeds 6-10 people, your table service and lawn chair. I'll supply the garbage bags for trash. I have a few items for the give-away. If you have something you'd like to pass along to another NOGger, please bring it Saturday night. I don't have room to store products.
Please, no pets at any of the food events.
Hope this helps with some questions. Post if not, we'll get the question answered.
And PLEASE.... everyone pack SUNSHINE and bring it with you
