NW Burbs Camping December Meeting

Come out and enjoy a drink, have some pizza, and share some stories in a relaxed social setting

We are returning to Gatsby's Pizza and Pub in Arlington Heights. This is a great little bar with a wonderful staff! They have a huge, varied menu and everything I have tried has been mighty tasty!

On Wednesday's, they have $6 pitchers of Bud Select, $5 pints of Blue Moon, $4 bottles of Heineken and Heineken Light, and $3 bottles of Bud Select

Best of all, 1/2 price large thin crust pizzas (before 10pm)

You can enter their parking lot off of Rand or Palatine, but it's easier to see their big purple sign from Rand road. If you are heading south on Rand, be in the right lane so you can turn into the lot.

After many monthly Meetings and a few trips, we really have a great group going!!! Come meet some fabulous people and great campers. We'll socialize, relive some trips, and throw out some new places to go camping next year. Plus let's plan some Winter activities!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or ideas!

    Yes, I am glad Phil is bringing his pop up to the next camp out. Or was that Jane?

    Enjoyed talking about camping and making new friends! Subjects covered were tents, popups, music, wine, and beer to name a few. Who ordered a thong on a stick? :)

    What a great group! We have a new banner for our campouts - thanks to Carolyn, Tom, and a "little" inspiration from Hooty's.

    If anyone still wants to get together for an informal Xmas party on the 19th I'd be happy to host. With my limited mobility, that's about all I can do! Let me know at Gatsby's if you are interested.

    We hope to see some of our friends that we haven't seen in a while and of course some new faces too. Even if you only stop in for a little bit, come on over and say hi. We hope that setting this up on a Wednesday will allow more people to join than on the originally scheduled weekend evening. Gatsby's is fairly inexpensive also and all of the food I've tried there has been great. We hope to see you there. =)
