The 1st 2 vehicles (1 for free and one included in the cost for $13) are covered, additional vehicles will have to park at their own expense.

We will designate one campground as the HANGOUT area where we all chill by the fire, roast smores, play games like Twister, Phase 10, and drink alcohol. The maximum attendance is 48, so it's a first come, first serve basis. :)

Small personal watercraft EXCEPT Jet Ski's are allowed on Collins lake (kayaks, paddle boards, Boats, etc...), so if you have one, feel free to bring it. A boat fee is $9/day. If members bring their boats and you would like to enjoy it as well, please make sure to bring $10 to help the owner cover their gas, daily fee, etc...

Everyone will be responsible for their own food, and feel free to hit someone up to stay in their tent if you don't have one.

    Carpool list is updated...get used to seeing this a few times a week. Now for those of you who are driving yourselves, just know that you will most likely be responsible for your own parking fee of $13 per day. Reason being is the carpool is designed to use as little as vehicles as possible. Also, there are too a few of you who have not answered the questions asked as you rsvp'd...please get used to answering some questions on almost EVERY event that our meetup group runs...if you have not yet, please do so....if you have any questions, please contact me immediately....have a great Monday everyone....see all of you very soon :-)
