If you find you need to cancel, (we sure hope not) please let me know first - we have a waiting list of anxious folks to come to the rally. We are recommending that anyone that cannot get into Bass, to please reserve in Egret.
No planned activities, however, we do plan to show a movie in the evening ... if weather cooperates, and if timing works out for those arriving. This is early bird day to setup, relax and watch everyone arrive on Friday.
Friday: Weiner Roast and Talking Stick
On arriving you will find a campfire where roasting hot dogs over the fire will be Friday nights dinner for anyone who would like to join in. Bring your own hot dogs, chips etc. (No need to stop for dinner on the way to camp).
Now this is a full day. Of course, you only need to do the activities that you are interested in.
