Event Description

Let's get into condition for Thanksgiving with our fourth (or is it fifth?) Annual Thanksgiving Feed. This year we'll be at Del Valle again, since it worked well last year. We'll provide a turkey, but bring whatever side dishes you want for the Saturday Potluck under the Tent of Doom.

Please note that the park locks its gate at 10 p.m., so you have to arrive before then.

Friday Night will be Pizza Night. Those of you with camp-stove ovens are encouraged to bring them. And those of you without them are invited to use ours, although you'll be on your own for the actual pizzas (8'' diameter maximum).

We'll be using the same part of the park as last year ... the loop that contains campsites 31 to 41 (31 is the only one with power, if you need it).

A map of the campground may be found at http://www.ebparks.org/files/Del_Valle_campground_09.pdf

Reservations can be made after Labor Day Weekend.

I'll try to reserve space 38, and suggest that we start booking the ones on either side of it and directly across the road. I am willing to share my space with somebody else, so let me know if you want to do that or get your own.

And, of course, bring wood, bring wine, bring musical instruments if you've got 'em...

(Speaking of firewood, I suppose that the info we got last year still applies: 

"FIREWOOD: To limit the spread of Sudden Oak Death fungus, you may NOT BRING UNPROCESSED/NATURAL FIREWOOD into the park. You may bring wood which has been commercially purchased and certified to be uncontaminated, processed fire logs or cut lumber. Family campground kiosks at Anthony Chabot and Del Valle have firewood for purchase".)

I didn't get a picture of the Bald Eagle, but I promise I saw it.
