3:00 PM Pack up and go home (This year we'd like to ask a few more of you to stick around for a few minutes and help us clean up the site...) You may also stay for one additional night's camping, if you wish.

Typically, the weather is windy, punctuated with short episodes of rain, so tarps and rain gear are recommended to be kept handy. If you don't wish to camp, just come for the Sunday fun & games. We often have 40 -60 people on Sunday! Bring a dish for the potlock lunch, and any items you would like to contribute as a prize. (If you'd like to contribute early, call Joe or Gary for pickup). If you wish, bring a hat for the Easter Bonnet Contest. Being a State Park, alcohol is officially banned, so if you do bring any, please be very discrete.

The club gets permits for Friday and Saturday nights, but most people only camp on Sat. night. The Park gates are locked between 8:00 PM and 7:00 AM, so you have to be inside before they close. Campground 'A' is all the way at the back of the park - turn right at the circle, and go down the unpaved road about half a mile. The Small Group Campsite and Pavilion is on the right (SW) end, to the south of the bathroom and shower building, in front of the Big White Tent, near the volleyball court. See map below, click on squares for aerial photos and more maps.

Bring your Xmas tree! Wrap it in a trash bag or plastic, stick it under the house, and bring it for the Saturday night MegaBonfire. This is not to be missed....
