The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 13, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The battle with the largest number of casualties in the American Civil War, it is often described as the war's turning point.  Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle.  That November, President Lincoln used the dedication ceremony for the Gettysburg National Cemetery to honor the fallen Union soldiers and redefine the purpose of the war in his historic Gettysburg Address.

We have 15 sites saved in our block but you can book any site in the campground and both recieve the discount and join the group.  Just let the campground know that you are with the returning Canvas Campers group when making your reservation.

Back by popular demand, we are going to have a beer/wine festival at this rally.  It will be after the potluck dinner and is completely optional.  Bring your favorite 6-12 pack or bottle of wine to share at a tasting.

The double-decker bus tour here is great.  There are also options for a self guide car tour, sagway tour or even on horseback.

We will be bringing back the Beer, Wine and a little Moon Shine event at this rally.  On Saturday evening at 8pm, after the normal 6pm potluck dinner, we will be having an adult beverage tasting around the campfire.  If you are interested in joining please bring some of your favorite, funny or local beverages to share.  We will provide sampling cups, ice trays, cork screws, etc.

For anyone not touring the battlefield, we will have card games, mini golf, corn hole and ladder golf around at the campground.

This is a family event with camping, the campfires and potluck dinner so don't hesitate to camp with kids.

Anyone interested in the 2 hr horseback riding tour of the Battlefield? We're going to be making reservations within the next 2 weeks...let me know if you are interested so we can figure out a time that works for everyone that wants to do this.

If you want to go, this is what I've found out:
$85/person

Tour goes through the Northern and Southern battle lines, which means you can see the start of Picket's Charge from the tree line looking up at the copse of trees.

240 lb weight limit

This is our next trip!

It doesn't look like we have enough interest for any sort of group discount for a tour.
For those interested in the Double Decker Bus Tour, here is a link:
http://www.gettysburgbattlefieldtours.com/

If anyone has already taken the tour and know a better company to go through, please feel free to post.

Pot Luck:
2HappyCampers and I were talking about going with a North vs. South theme.
If you would like to participate, bring a traditional Northern or Southern dish (or anything else you would like to make).
Don't forget we are having a beer / wine festival following the potluck.
Bring your favorite 6-12 pack or a bottle of wine to share.

Hey Guys and Gals, welcome. For the Potluck we ask if possible you to list in this rally thread what you think you will make. Reason is other will see it to make sure we don't have 5 desserts and no proteins, etc. Plus we have always have some picky eaters (kids) and some with Peanut allergies.
 
If you go back to the first message in this thread, the rally coordinators will update the checklist with what others are bringing, so you can see without having to read back through every message again.
 
Welcome to CanvasCampers, see you this Weekend

Ahhhh!!!  Yes, the list is helpful!  Looks like we need some sides. I'll bring a layered pea salad (hello 1970s) and either a green salad or another green veggie plus a dessert.

We will be bringing back the Beer, Wine and a little Moon Shine event at this rally.  On Saturday evening at 8pm, after the normal 6pm potluck dinner, we will be having an adult beverage tasting around the campfire.  If you are interested in joining please bring some of your favorite, funny or local beverages to share.  We will provide sampling cups, ice trays, cork screws, etc.

Peter and I will be bringing a set of rich red Wines for tasting - and real wine glasses to sample them in (no solo cups!).

Should I do shredded beef or  a side dish?

Since others are bringing Beans, we will just make a really big Yankee Pot Roast.

Oh, I forgot about the North vs South theme...so the pea salad idea is out. Back to the drawing board.

We have wasps in our fridge vent. Does anyone know how to get rid of them?  Will have 13 week old tiny puppy with us so concerned about chemicals.

Get nest out and put a piece of screen inside vent door so they don't get back in.

Honey (casbes), pea salad is a southern dish, so bring it on!

Which night is the potluck?
Title: Re: Spring Historical Gettysburg Rally - May 2017
Post by: JoeCamper on May 19, 2017, 08:53:47 AM
Potluck is always Saturday at 6pm.  The only time it changes is 5pm at the November rally because it's dark by 6pm

See you soon!
