Event Description

Join us in the beautiful Napa Valley at Napa Bothe State Park for a celebration of the full moon. We'll enjoy pre-prandials and Thanksgiving-style fare at the Saturday night potluck dinner. This park does not take reservations after November 1 and is usually half-empty this time of year. If we're lucky, Joel will bring the deep-fryer for the turkey and JLT will bring the Tent of Doom to ward off the chill. Stop at the Bale Grist Mill next door and pick up some organic flour. see:http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=482

How about a butternut squash cranberry cornbread stuffing to serve on the side? I'm planning to provide the turkey again. Perhaps I'll send an e-mail to all the attendees one week beforehand to see what folks are bringing.

TURKEY: check. FLAVOR INJECTOR: check. Almost ready to roll.

If anyone can check in on Friday, let us know. I cannot commit to Friday due to work requirements (this may change shortly). It will be great if a few volks can get over there Friday and snatch a few good sites. Can we get a preliminary head-count of who might be able to check in Friday?

I'll be there Friday.

I've forgotten whether we usually reserve slots here or just take our chances (last year we pretty much had the place to ourselves). And I'll once again announce that I'll be happy to split a space with somebody. Any takers?

No reservations this time of year. Just show up!

Blake and I will be rolling in sometime Friday, probably early evening. I'm up for cooking something...mashed potatoes or roasted veggies or a couple of appetizers or....??? Open to suggestions.

I simply encourage volks to bring what they like for the Saturday feast. The turkey is covered. If you are not sure what to bring, err on the side of pie or veggies. Buy a veggie platter at the supermarket.

Looks like Joel & John will get there on Friday. I am hoping to do the same on Friday. But, no matter, those that arrive Friday evening, just try to grab some prime real estate in contiguous sites. I'll know more about my arrival in a few days.
