Wish we could go  :(  but a group of us will be in VT at a friends house riding our bikes & peeping at the leaves.
We used to take the kids there when they were young and well the biggest kid, Dad, just loves that old coaster!!!
We seemed to have missed this last year also.  Is it always the third weekend in September?

Hi.   My friend just informed me that she received  four discounted tickets for Knobbles as a result of a food purchase at Weiss (in Sparta).  The tickets are good till the end of this year.  I do not know any other details but  I will be checking this out next week at the Weiss in Mainsfield.

It looks like we only have 3 sites left in our block for Lake Glory next month.  It's a great time of the year to camp.

Saint Paula will be helping with coordinating this trip.

I hoped we could make it again this year, but it looks like we are going to be in Rhode Island for our family vacation that got pushed back from June.  We did visit the park last week with my sister in law and nephew, it's always a fun place to visit.

Looks like there are still three sites left. My first trip to Knoebels Park was last September with several  of the CanvasCampers members.  The park, as many described to me, is like a step back in time.  Just a great family oriented place.  You will have to watch for a certain   :cowboy:, who will remain nameless, when your kids ride the  carousel with the copper ring grab. This  :cowboy: frightens the children with his big cowboy hat and holster belted at his waist with a Matt Dillon original gun inside. He grabbed all of the rings while the other children were crying for their parents. Several of the members went to the Bloomsburg Fair on Friday and Saturday as well.  They brought back stories of people watching, the Penn State homemade ice cream, and tons of other great food, and  vendors selling their hand crafted wares.  We all had a great time at the Lake Glory campsite. With everyone busy going to the Bloomsburg Fair and Knoebels, we still managed to have two gatherings around an evening fire.  This year, we are planning to have a potluck breakfast on Saturday morning.  More will be posted about this in a few weeks. If anyone would like to post some ideas for the breakfast, please do so. My family is not huge breakfast eaters, so ideas and recipes are welcome.  Hope to see all of the sites filled.

BadSeed, DH, corrected me. They are brass rings not copper.  The  :cowboy: wears a set of something else made of brass when he rides the carousel and takes all of the brass rings. We will have to call upon Cowgirl Joy to rope that man off to jail.

I'm calling upon the assistance from all you CanvasCampers who attended the 2010 Camp Glory rally.  Would appreciate your contribution of stories relating to camping at Lake Glory, day at Knoebels and the Bloomsburg Fair. I'm picking on the poor  :cowboy: too much.  I know there are other stories to tell.  If my memory serves me correctly, there were some great stories about the log ride and laser tag. Would appreciate your contribution.

Paula,
Yes, that was funny when Christine was trying to chase the cat away. Mocha (the doggie) was getting upset because the cat was there. So Christine decided to go chase the cat away. I loved how she was making all these motions and acting all threatening  :o  -- what did the cat do? Just stare at her and proceed to clean himself. Gotta love cats!

Also, when we showed up, we saw the world's slowest lawn mower. The guy took two hours to slowly mow our portion of the campground. Pretty funny.

Thanks Joe and Steve for the great memories.  Bring on more stories everyone. Anyone interested in creating great memories of the 2011 Lake Glory Rally, there are still a few sites left.

OK, I just did a little homework assigned to me by the famous brass ring steal'n  :cowboy:. If you go to Bloomsburg Fair website, www.Bloomsburg Fair.com (dah), you will find tons of information on all the entertainment, vendors, ticket prices, etc.  Some of the events that I saw listed are a tractor/truck pull, horse racing, horse and pony pull,Gold Rush high dive and Dock Dog. All family oriented events.  The cost of admission is $5 and parking is $5. The admission gate opens at 7:00AM and closes at 9:00PM.  Looks like tons of fun.
