Not many bugs.
The BIG screen room was set up for the first time and it worked out just fine for our community dinners.  Good deal for a hundred bucks.

THE NEXT TRIP STARTS HERE
It is important that the below listing is updated so that we all know how much food to bring
by counting the number of persons that are signed up for the trip.
The more campers we have, the more variety of food we will have. So everyone will be
enjoying smaller than normal portions of any one food. I hope this makes sense.
So, this means DON'T bring "food for an army"! Just a small portion for each person.
We only have small refrigerators and coolers for the leftovers.
Remember, our camping rule is "You take your leftovers home with you".
Of course, alcoholic beverages are exempt. But, then we never have those left over.

Okay Folks! This is the last scheduled trip. Let's do it up right!
Remember: The sites are NOT pre-assigned and it will be a free-for-all. We MUST all arrive
as early as possible to stake claim to our group sites. A caravan of sorts would be good.
Figure on an hour and a half drive.
