Thingette 1 and I have invited our parents to join in the fun.  They have booked site 13.  They'll be the happily retired senior citizens in the big motor home. They've asked when potluck will be so they can be sure to bring something yummy. (Mom's a great cook and you'll not be disappointed.)

All our group potluck dinners are normally at 6pm except this one.  We will have it at 5pm mostly because of how early it gets dark.  We will have a group campfire during and after.

Joe: Thanks! Repacking from last weekend. Will be ready to go. What else is needed (tables, electric strips, serving stuff, etc?)

I decided to go ahead and swap our reservation to site #7.

Marcy says we'll bring stuffing and a pie (I'm angling for coconut custard, but it'll likely be german chocolate or similar).

Dawn, can you make a doggie bag of your mashed potatoes for me?  We aren't attending the rally. You make the best mashed potatoes Yummmmm!

Thanks Paula  ;D

If you guys are doing your Allentown RV show rally in January again, then I'll bring them to that...

Ok, time to get the rally rolling.
We can use tables, table clothes and firewood if anyone can bring it?

Aw, sorry to miss this one. The turkey is the best! We'll be in Reading watching my son perform in their fall theater production.

We have played games at a few rallies and we will be having one at this rally also.  Not sure what yet but if anyone has any ideas, send me a PM.  We have played at two rallies this year; name the sitcom cartoon character and show.  The other was what's the 80s tune and band with only 8 seconds.

Suzanne,  Sorry to hear you can't make it.  The fall theater production sounds like a lot of fun.

So, how many tables? I will check at work. They will be 8 ft long. Have to see if they fit in the van...

What's the average cost of firewood? how much do we typically use in one night? I passed a place the other day that had firewood for sale, $25 for a round firewood holder full (the kind of holder that is 4-5 ft in diameter and would sit on a porch, etc.)

Have one 8 foot folding table with table cloth and an extra table cloth. Have kindling approx 1" diameter stuff cut and dried.  Maybe a 2 foot diam bundle, will bring.  And a couple pieces of larger stuff, will bring it too.  Not enough to go all night, but enough to get it started up.  (Will try to send firewood with thingette 1 so you have it for Friday.) Dad will have a ladder golf set for day light use.  We have washer toss and bean bag toss if anyone is interested in that(let me know so I pack it.  Otherwise it'll stay home)

We can bring a couple of square folding tables if necessary. We were at Cordorus State Park and they sold firewood at the entrance to the campgrounds. Wasn't sure if firewood is sold close to this place. Thoughts?

Sorry we won't make this rally, we went a few years ago at Caladonia when we were living in Maryland.  Great time, great people

We can probably use about 6 or 7 tables for food.  :chef: Even more table clothes for picnic tables.

We have one of our members to play the guitar around the campfire Saturday night.  :guitar: I just haven't asked him yet.  ;D

We will have a fire Friday evening for a Meet & Greet if you are able to arrive on time.

We will have a game on Saturday afternoon if interested (more details later), dinner around 5pm and a group campfire from around noon into the evening.  I can look into getting a small load of wood delivered if sites want to pitch in $5 each?  Let me know.

We have enough to do to make this all happen and the best CC events have a fire that aims to make the ring glow red. Order wood - I will chip way more than $5 in just to not have to load and unload it.
