Thanksgiving Rally next year is moving to Lums Pond, DE for only one year.  Details above, Gathering site booked.  You can make your reservation now.

Post by: busdriverwc75 on January 02, 2017, 04:28:03 PM
FYI, the above map is outdated. When the full hookup renovations were completed last year, all sites became  "back in" on a parking pad. Previously, there were no designated parking pads so you could situate your camper & vehicle however you wanted to on your site.

We'd like to attend this one, but Mark, (BuxCamper) doesn't know if he'll be traveling for work, and I don't trust myself to tow the new camper.  Might have to wait for the last minute and see if there is a site left.

Halloween Rally is over, time to look forward to the Thanksgiving Rally. 

I need to hang around while the turkeys cook this year and take notes because the following week I'll be deep frying 5-6 turkeys for a meal my church is providing for a youth center.  I've deep fried turkey before (singular) but never running 2 fryers for multiple turkeys  :chef:

Matt,
 You better have some good help one person can't do it alone. Even 1 bird.
Title: Re: Nov 2017 Thanksgiving Closer
Post by: Lone Lock on October 10, 2017, 09:29:32 AM
Don't worry, we are recruiting many members of our church to be there that day to help with the meal. 

Every month we go to a youth center for at risk youth, THE POINT (http://parkesburgpoint.com/about/who-we-serve/), and serve a meal and provide various activities.  Personally I am only involved with the food part, usually only washing dishes because I don't get there until after work around 6.  Once a year around October November we try to go all out from the typical pasta, hamburgers & hot dogs, chicken, etc.  Last year we made steak and baked potatoes.  This year we are making a full blown Thanksgiving dinner. 

We are having the congregation members make pies instead of our usual cookies.  We are making real mashed potatoes not instant so we have to peel a lot of potatoes.  We are breaking up into teams to handle each aspect.  I'll be in charge of the turkeys along with 1 other guy and a floater or 2.  I took the day off since we will need to start this around noon.
Title: Re: Nov 2017 Thanksgiving Closer
Post by: JoeCamper on October 13, 2017, 10:43:05 AM
After 10 years of cooking 46 turkeys or over 736 lbs of meat - I am stepping down this year with cooking. 
I think I've done my share.  :omg:

With some help from 2HappyCampers and Samebutdifferent, Chiefbowes will be taking over this year.

We do need to someone to find and coordinate a local firewood delivery.  The cost will be split by everyone attending.  If you can help, please send me a private message? Thanks!

Ok, let's talk turkey! Or in this case everything that goes with it... RnR will bring a crockpot of mashed potatoes.

Is that Stuffing AND Broccoli casserole....or....Stuffing with broccoli-in-it casserole?

Just asking because I was going to make just plain stuffing but if it's covered, I'll go with something else.

Just catching up on the thread here. The Hindy clan will be coming in Friday hopefully between 6 and 7.

WE are brainstorming what else may be a good Thanksgiving fare.

Post by: thingette1 on October 30, 2017, 02:54:06 PM
Still needed for potluck:

another veggie or two (hot or cold, doesn't matter),
cranberry relish and
TURKEY GRAVY. Gravy from a can is fine since there won't be any drippings to make it from as Turkeys are being fried.

Still need a table or two and would be nice to have enough EZ ups to put over the food tables.

We are trying to cut down on crock pots as there is not enough space or power for them all. We will have a ton of buffet frames with sterno to keep everything warm. We will provide foil pans with lids (1/2 and full size) for you to transfer your food into - then put on it the sternos to keep everything hot.

I'm at the campground! I'm all alone (with the exception of the dog I kid napped for company) It's gorgeous, and the weather is perfect!

I'll be making green bean casserole

Check-in is at 1 and the firewood is coming at 3. Can't wait to see everyone!

Jealous!  We are leaving after I get off work but that gives us an entire extra day by arriving late!  Also less traffic!

Since there can never be enough mashed potatoes, we will also make 5 lbs of Mash besides the breads.

Hi Everyone, it was another great weekend of camping with old and new friends.  Even 4 families invited their older kids to experience and enjoy our Thanksgiving camping meal.  Rain overnight last night but beautiful and unseasonably warm weather.   

Lums Pond is a beautiful state park with full hookup sites.  It is in an open grass area field with large sites that have limited shade.  FYI - The campground will not allow you to access the campground or your site until exactly 1pm check-in.

Big Thanks to everyone for some amazing food, tables and 10x10 canopies.
- thanks EwwwBugs (my wife) for loving and putting up with me while we plan these events.
- thanks mknott57 & HuskyCampers for starting our huge group fire.
- thanks MariskaHaritay for ordering and coordinating the cord of firewood for the weekend.
- thanks ElmiraFudd for being the wagon master for this group rally and continued Facebook entertainment.
- thanks CampingPhil for everything... the coffee, chaffing dishes, direction, database wizardry and more.
- thanks 2HappyCampers for collecting donations for the event gathering site, firewood, turkeys, etc
- thanks LoneLock for hauling a lot of the event gear onsite
- BIG thanks to chiefbowes, samebutdifferent, 2happycampers and thingette for deep frying 5 turkeys to go with everyone's sides.
- thank you to everyone who helped make this 10th year thanksgiving rally another great one, sorry if I forgot something.

2018, here we come.

I wanted to let anyone who had any issues finding the park entrance at night, I contacted Delaware DNR. Here is their reply.
Hello Mr. Mulligan,
 
Thanks for letting us know about this.  There is a street light at the campground entrance.  It sounds like there is a good chance that either the bulb or the sensor has gone bad.  We will check on it and notify the power company to fix it.
 
Thanks,
 
Mike Moyer
Park Superintendent
Lums Pond State Park
