Event Description

This is #12! We missed last year, but let's hope we can all be back together again to consume food and make merry! 

We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest  before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.

It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,

Party Central will be at site #4o. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site). 

As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.

We are probably bringing Brussels Sprouts garnished with bits of diced Raccoon.

Yum! (I think.)

I will bring salt potatoes (Syracuse stye), and the stuff to baste the turkey with. I may also try to bake a small loaf of bread, but don't count on that. BTW, I will also bring an aluminum pan to put the dismembered parts of the turkey for serving, but I think that Kris has already volunteered to bring the cutting board, knife, fork, and skills to carve the bird.

Hi all,

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year. My Mom is sick so I'm heading to Florida. I was really looking to seeing you all again for the big Turkey Day get together. I'm signing up for the 420 experience!

My site was 41 if anyone wants it. If not I'll put it back on the Solano Parks Site.

Thanks, and have a great time!

If sites 41 and 42 have been snapped up by one of us, great! Be advised that Solano County no has a reservations-only policy for camping. 

Some people have said they're coming, but I don't see them as having dibs on either a camping site or a share:

Laura May

Jae Lindsey

Mai'ili Point Westy

I'm assuming that if Richard von Bristol shows up, he'll be with Joe & Corey.

I'll be sharing site #2 with Brett Bishop.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone!!

Hi Jane Lindsey, I look forward to seeing you again!

Comment by Kathleen on November 10, 2021 at 2:27pm

My "other" at site #13 has a conflict so there is more room there if there are any stragglers looking for space. I haven't figured out what to bring food wise yet thought... is a yummy salad on anyone's food list yet?

Comment by John LaTorre on November 12, 2021 at 4:44pm

The weather is looking pretty good for that weekend: highs in the mid-60s, lows in the mid 40s, and partly cloudy but no appreciable rainfall.

I think this is how the site allocation currently stands:

#2 Brett Bishop/Jane L.

#3  Mike & Kathy Marlowe/?

#11 Kris Hanson/friend

#13 Kathleen/?

#14 Gene Burris/Bruce

#15 Joe, Corey, & Sophie/?

#20 Chad and Bob /  Marc and Jason

#39 Melissa and Randy Boyd/?

#40 JLT/Diana Harvey

If there are any hang-ups regarding procuring the turkey, I'd like to know about it ASAP.

Looks like around this time next week it will be almost mimosa time :)

I'll be bringing the cutting board, knife, and serving forks for da bird, although we may need a carving expert.  Also I will be making a version of loaded mashed potatoes. 

Can't wait to see everyone again.  Have a safe trip!

I'll bring some serious carbs...STUFFING :)
