Meeting Time: 7:00 PM
Meeting Place: Group Camp 1 (behind the park office)
Estimated Event Time: 3 hours
Ponda, Jason and the rest of the Long Hunter gang will provide the setting and the campfire - it's up to you to bring the rest!
This will likely be Long Hunter's final campfire event of 2013 - so if you haven't made it to one yet, this might be your last chance. This event is sponsored by the Friends of Long Hunter State Park (http://friendsoflonghunter.com/).
During this laid-back program, we invite you to bring food, beverages, s'mores, musical instruments, games, stories, frisbees, telescopes, or any other campfire-appropriate items. If you know any musicians/pickers, please invite them. And feel free to bring along potluck dishes/drinks/desserts to share. Who knows, we might even ask a few nature-related trivia questions and give away a few prizes!
Long Hunter's campfire programs are often unpredictable. For example, at one program an attendee brought a telescope to the campfire and the group was treated to stunning views of Saturn. And during another program several people witnessed a shooting star overhead. And we've also had lively bluegrass bands show up and play late into the night. In addition, we often see and hear some interesting wildlife.
Campfire Night is suitable for the entire family. Feel free to bring along your own food and beverages. Long Hunter's campfire programs often go until 10 p.m. or later, so if you can't get there at exactly 7 p.m., you're welcome to stop by later. Kids are welcome, as are well-behaved pets on leashes.
