May have 2 annual campouts collide that weekend. But missing it would make 2010 suck. So....

I like Finnon Lake best in April, when it is green. I also really like the Saturday night dinner feast!

Hey! This is coming up this weekend!

There are several VW Camper Family folk attending, and we would like to see YOU there too!

It's a great time, a wonderful, wide-open campground and the food is swell. Plus, there is a lake to fall into after you have had too much to drink!

Sign up!

OK, I am here. At Finnon, that is. It's cold and raining now, but it is supposed to be warm and sunny by Friday. Are you coming up? I don't care if you didn't RSVP. Just bring $20 and get your butt up here, bus or no bus.
