At 6pm we’lldo a pot luck dinner, and we’re having a raffle of hammock camping gear to help pay for the use of the campground.

Do Not Make Reservations for camping, I have already rented the entire campground. Anyone camping can give a donation to help cover my costs. Over 50 people have already registered so If there’s any money left over it goes towards a deposit for next yearand any extra costs like firewood etc.

Raffle:

Tickets to the gearraffle are sold and paid for Saturday night at the event..

Bring cash to buy your tickets! $5 per ticket or 5 tickets for $20

Sunday:

From11:00am to 3:00pm I will be holding an interactive Hammock Camping & Tarpology Class through NOLI at the campground. So any of you who may want to learn the finer points of using a camping hammock with tarps, under quiltsand bug nets this is a comprehensive class.

And there is a guest speaker from dutchwaregear.com to demonstrate titanium suspension options to use instead of tying knots!
