Event Description

Our annual escape from Superbowl Madness. It will be our usual set-up .... wine, food, companionship (bring the wine and bring or buy the wood). Also, musical instruments are welcome, and maybe we can jam a little.

Friday night is pizza night ... bring your little Coleman camp ovens or use ours, and make and bake an 8" pizza. (You provide ingredients, of course.)

On Saturday, the legendary 'Soup or Bowl' competition will take place once again! Here's how it works: Prepare a batch of something hot and delicious to share that can be served in a bowl. Some examples would be chili, stew, Jambalaya, a hearty soup or anything else that's yummy. Bring your entry to the serving table no later than 4:00 pm. Using ballots, all attendees will rank the entries from best to the not-so-best. Those with the most votes will receive *VALUABLE PRIZES*, a snazzy ribbon and eternal bragging rights. Runner-ups will also receive a snazzy ribbon along with the honor vested to participants. If you want to contribute something but cooking is just not possible, bring a dessert or garlic bread or wine. We do like our wine. If you don't wish to cook something or bring along something, that's fine too! Just bring along your own bowl and your own spoon and wine glass. We need your votes!

(Suggestion: muffin tins make great sampling trays)

Party Central will be spot #4. As usual, it will be rain or shine, and if it's rainy, the Tent of Doom and the Annex of Despair will keep us all dry.

Two more things: Be aware that there are wild critters (raccoons, feral cats, etc.) that will go into any open camper that you're not around. So be sure to keep your doors closed.

Second, Brett made a little video about what kind of adapter you need if you want to use the AC outlets that are at every site (for free!). Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOF7aCUfwZ0

We had a great time this weekend, thanks to everyone and we look forward to many more campouts in the future!

Well, we had a good time, the weather was nice, and not much got left behind:

The white strainer/ladle and the boning knife ("Granny's" brand) were actually left over from the Thanksgiving feed. The leather gloves, fork, and white cutting board were from this event. If you recognize any of them and want them back, let me know.

Had a fantastic time as always with our VW Camper Family.  So nice to meet Cathi, Jack, Barbara and Diana as well as catching up with all near to our hearts.  Missed a few of you as well.  See you all soon, The Marlows
