New Update - 09/28/11 - I have recently been notifed that the Burn Ban has been lifted from the campsite, so as a suggestion everyone should try and bring some firewood for evening campfires, it really helps to keep the bugs away.

I am also extending the RSVP to remain open until October 7th.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
