Since we enjoyed the last one at this location so much, we are doing it again! Sequence Tournament here we come!!

TG Campground is a private community campground that Leanne has access to being a community member. It has an outhouse and firepit, but NO water. Please bring your own water. It is gated and locked but during the day it will look locked but will not be so anyone coming can get it. Plenty of room for tents and trailers.

Total cost is $50 for the whole campground for the weekend. This amount will be divided up per sleeping unit per night, so $25 each night. Example: 5 units Friday, five dollars per unit, and 7 units on Saturday it would be $3.50 per unit that night.

** firewood ** may be available but best to bring some if you can. Thank you.

** Pot luck dinner Saturday night ** Beer Can Chickens supplied, contribution $$ to Kim for picking them up, please bring something else to share. Remember not too much, as you will go home with leftovers. **wink**

If you have any questions please ask and we will get back to you.

Winchell Lake is close by and available for those wanting to fish, please follow any Alberta fishing regulations. Here is additional fishing info:

We will not be arranging rides and will try to get enough space for those of us going. If you require a ride, please post in the response section and correspond directly via email. We will be traveling to campground on Friday morning. Please keep your RRSP current.



IF THE WEATHER IS ABSOLUTELY MISERABLE, I WILL BE ADVISING WHETHER THE CAMPING MEETUP WILL PROCEED. (I will most likely be there anyway) YOU CAN MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHETHER YOU ARE STILL GOING OUTSIDE OF MEETUP.

    Recipe as asked for... :-)

    English Toffee

    1 Can Regular Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk (300ml)
    2 cups firmly packed brown sugar (500ml)
    1/2 cup corn syrup (125ml)
    1/2 cup butter (125ml)

    1. In a heavy saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
    2. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir for 30 minutes, until mixture is rich brown color or until a small amount dropped in cold water forms a ball.
    3. Pour into a lightly greased 8x8 pan. Cool slightly and sprinkle with sea salt. Cool all the way before cutting into squares.

    Enjoy!

      LOL day = Dan.. Sorry..

    I have the rub, the Roasters and the beer cans, etc. I have never done anything as large as a hutterite Chicken and as long as the BBQ will work out, we should do o.k. I will throw in some hot dogs as a back up plan...haha! I'm also bringing Scallops and bacon. The mussels were to close to the due date for my comfort level, so I will also be doing Prawns and fresh Pineapple in a honey sesame glaze...
    Will be arriving Friday afternoon....

    Dan I have the chickens. Is there anything else we need for the chickens or are good to go . Kim

  • Leanne

    Looks like we have 4 trailers, 2 sleeping vehicles, 2 tents and 2 tent trailers. So the possibility of 9 sleeping units per night. It so expensive I cannot handle it.. (just kidding). We will be tight but can use the circle road too for those last to arrive. Anyone wanting to leave early Sunday make sure you let us know. Last time we had 6 trailers 1 sleeping vehicle and two tents. :) and now one had to camp on the circle road. I've camped on the circle road beofre with only two units there, so do to worry, wait till you see the campground. **wink* Helene, we will make sure to get you in a spot so you can leave on Saturday.

  • Christine

    Hello. The plan is: Eric will follow me out Saturday morning. I will visit for the day and join you for the potluck (which I assume is happening again), but will likely not stay overnight. Eric will though, so I have only registered one person. See you soon.

    August 22, 2013

    • Leanne

      Be great to see you again, Christine. Yes, don't bring meat to pot luck unless you do not want beer can chicken. We have two chickens for doing the beer can chickens..

      August 22, 2013

  • Leanne

    Hello all, the weekend is almost upon us, yippee! Reminder if you want a table at your own site you need to bring one as there is no picnic tables at each site. If you can bring an arm load of wood, there is some there from the last group, but it is nice to leave some behind for the next users. Anyone play Euchre? I know Shawn does, maybe a few more do and we can have a few euchre card games as well. Till tomorrow!

    Beer Can Chicken for pot luck Saturday night.. mmmmmm

    Finally we are able to camp with the group. However unfortunately we are able to stay Friday night only as we are babysitting our grand daughter on Sat. Hope it is OK. We have both taken Friday off so that we can get there at noon. We will bring some wood.

    Leanne, can you please send us directions on how to get there.

    We are looing forward to meeting everybody.

    Thank you.

    Thanks Kim, I will bring two roasters, two cans of beer and the Beer can chicken spice. Can somebody do the cutting board and a platter? Kim, I will buy one of the Chickens when I see you and I'll also stop at Costco and pick up some Scallops for Bacon appetizers. If there are fresh muscles, I will get some of those as well....We'll need some appies for the non fish people...:-)

    August 19, 2013

  • Dan

    Bad news....Went to my little Huterite Chicken suppliers yesterday and they are temporarily out of Chickens!! I would suggest we go back to "Whatever entry you wish to BBQ" and a side dish. I will be bringing an appetizer this time around.

    August 19, 2013

    • Leanne

      Kim picked up two chickens! :)

      August 19, 2013

  • Leanne

    Kim, is trying to get chickens. Keep you posted!

    August 19, 2013

  • Charla

    Looking forward to it! Message me here if you need firewood, as we have plenty -- we will leave Canmore at ~5:00ish. Dan, let me know if you still want the BBQ for your chicken.

    August 14, 2013

    • Leanne

      Hi Charla glad you two can make it. If you have room please bring a little firewood. At the moment there is no one there between our weekends, but Dan isn't bringing the chainsaw. Found a few metal and plastic chairs and table to take and leave out there. Easier to play cards chairs. See you next weekend. ;-)
