Alright. Were looking at a day and a half scheduled, possible 2 and one half day event at Silver Lake.
It's a great suggestion for us to go camping and play in the dunes, plus I have never been there.
Tim1 is working on some camping area for us currently.
So here is a tentative schedule for the time being.
Camping Friday Night.
Play in dunes on Saturday.
Cookout on Saturday as well.
Leave Saturday night, and/or camp and leave Sunday.
Any of you church goers can attend church with Pastor Tim1.
Any of you who Golf, if there is enough golfers, can go golfing with me.
This makes for a full packed weekend. Some of you have sand rigs, and love to play in the dunes. Others like to camp and such, cook etc. I figure this event will be long enough where people will not feel rushed or short changed due to gas prices.
We will most likely need camping things like Grilles, and water and such brought with us. Possibly a Generator as well. Food of course, and hopefully Tim2 can bring some of that wonderful, cavity causing, pie he made last time. I had a sugar headache for an hour. (Thanks Tim2!!!!)
This wont be till about June area. So you have at least 2 months to save your pennies to make the trip, and make plans. I'm working with Tim1 to set up a date for a place to camp. I'm hoping that free camping will help encourage people to attend. I'd like to also state this as a family event. I am not sure about bringing young children however, but cannot say it's a bad thing? I'd like it to be more family event like, without any formalities. Unless you guys all want to vote differently.
Thats it for now.
Next will be a date.
All I need to know is how many of you Golf, and would like to golf on Sunday.
There will still be plenty of camping available, just pick an off peak weekend (not Memorial, 4th of July, or Labor day) and we will have plenty of options for camping.
My suggestion would be: Hideaway Campground, family camping at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes
Its got really nice, clean facilities and lots of shade.
There are several other campgrounds in the area too if someone has other preferences.
Hey guys, Sorry the free camping ain't gonna work like William said, but as stated other camp grounds will be available. Memorial weekend which is normally insane here was pretty quiet this year. still a line at the dunes but there were many open sites at the camp grounds. Fuel prices are the biggest issue!! I haven't hit the dunes yet this year so I can't say how they look. I noticed over the winter somebody stole my flag from outside my garage so once I get my stickers and a new flag I will go up and see how things look.
If we can make this happen we have plenty at our disposal. Also for broken trucks we will have a shop available. Parts who know but we will have a shop!
William I say we choose a date even if it gets into July. Set a date then see what happens. Even if we just have a few people or even a few for one day it will still be a good time!
