Event Description

In celebration of 4/20!

We will be camping again at Lake Solano County Park campground, which is technically in Winters, but somewhat closer to Vacaville. 

You'll need to reserve a site for yourself (and maybe your pal) in the range of sites from #39 to 45. That's the main VW area. If those run out, then consider snagging sites 8,9,10 or 11. And if those run out, there are lotsa other spaces.

PLEASE SHARE YOUR SITE. Or don't. No worries.

This campground is easy to get to, has a swell nature center, fishing opportunities and has unabashed roaming peacocks. 

Saturday night will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Important notes:

(1.) This campground LOCKS ITS GATES at 9:00 pm. If you do not arrive before they lock the gates, you will be camping outside the gate until the following morning.

(2.) Although this event occurs on 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano County Campgrounds are smoke-free and they're quite serious about that.

Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

CORNHOLE COMPETITION!

Saturday at 11:00 am in the (TBA) Cornhole area. 

Practicing shall occur on Friday afternoon around beer:30

See Paul for more details.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PANTRY RAID CHILI INSTRUCTIONS:

Look in your pantry. Grab only *ONE* 14 oz. (or so) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring that can (along with a bowl and spoon for yourself) to the camp out. We will add the contents of your contribution to a base of beef and onions.

PANTRY RAID CHILI CONTRIBUTION OPTIONS:

Bring along one 14 oz. can of any of the things listed below:

Pinto beans
Red Kidney beans
White beans
Navy beans
Piquinto beans
Diced tomatoes
Diced tomatoes with Italian spices
Diced tomatoes with Jalapeños. 
Crushed tomatoes with Eye of Newt                               

Chopped tomatoes
Chili con carne                                                                             

Chili sin carne
Chili with beans
Chili without beans

Roadkill Chili 

Rotel tomatoes

Ranch Style (tm) brand beans of any variety.

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

Please do NOT bring Lentil beans.

If bringing a can of beans won’t work for you, then bring a loaf of pre-made Garlic bread or a scrumptious dessert. Or a bottle of wine. We like wine. Or firewood. We like that too. If that won’t work either, then just bring yourself, a bowl, a spoon and an appetite.

As of today I will not allow more than 10 people partying at one time in my van.

Social distancing is always recommended after mass consumption of the pantry raid chili.

I can’t wait for this event. Is anyone backing out ?
Comment by John LaTorre on March 17, 2020 at 1:55pm

I'm not. At least, not until I get the bug myself.
