Oh and yeah maybe some other activities like the pumpkin-carving contest and a scavenger hunt or a hay ride,—f we can get our hands on a trailer and some hay LoL. Regardless, save the date for this always-a-hoot-n-anny Halloween celebration. You really don’t want to miss it. The TBD activity will start at 3 P.M. Potluck at 6 P.M. Trick-or-Treating around 8 P.M. Saturday, Oct 19.
Yay! Bring your favorite Italian dish to our 19th annual Italian Fest Pot Luck. In fact, sign up your dish in the office so we can get a beat on what everyone’s bringing, like, is it an entree, appetizer, wine or water or pop or tea, dessert item, or bread? You get it. We will cook up all the spaghetti and we’ll also supply plates, cups, plastic utensils, napkins. Social hour starts at 5 P.M.. We eat around 6 P.M.
Yep! We’re doing the seasonal bags tournament and soup event again. Chad & Tammy Danielson agreed to organize the tourney. It’s all happening at the Quonset Hut: outside if the weather is nice, inside if it’s not.
When? Saturday, Sept 14. Time? Tourney starts at 1 P.M. BYOB and some snacks if you wanna. Soup ‘n Such starts around 5 P.M. Bring your pot-of-soup or tray-of-something.
Got some extra stuff you want to get rid of, I mean… share forward? Get it out for the 3rd annual camper '“garage sale” Labor Day weekend.
You don’t need to sign up anywhere. Just set up your stuff at your campsite on Saturday Aug 31st 8 am-12 pm and post balloons for visitors to see. You can get them from Sherry Hayenga (site #302). A flyer will also be given to guests at check-in so they know about it.
4th of July activities this year: Fireworks on Sat, July 6th at 10 p.m. and two parades:
Thurs, July 4 @ 6:30 p.m. - Candy parade
Friday, July 5 @ 9:00 p.m. - Night parade
If you would like to participate in the parades, golf carts will be lining up at the Turnaround in the new seasonal section (south side) and start from there. If you don’t have a golf cart, you can catch a ride with someone at the line-up. If you do have a golf cart, decorate it to your heart’s content and join us.
Join us for our annual Memorial weekend wine tasting with Empty Nest Winery. We’ll have giveaways, snacks, and fun for everyone.. Bring your friends. Everyone (over 21) welcome.
If you want to help prep the snacks or set up the picnic spools or pick lilacs for our center piece vases, meet us in the store at 5 p.m. There’s always plenty to do and many hands make for light work.
The event will be held behind the Quonset Hut on the lawn (or in the Quonset if it rains).
We’re aiming to open Friday April 19. The roads are still a little soft and mushy. To prove the point, Pat Ferrie came home last Saturday (April 6) and sunk his Crete truck cab (yeah, even without the trailer) about a foot into the driveway. We gotta wait for the frost boils to thaw before we can safely drive heavy trailers around the campground. But we’re working out and about, and the store is open, so we’re gonna start camping on Fri April 19.
Please talk to Dave, though, before moving your camper or driving your camper into the campground this season. You may have to wait a week before you do.
Our once-in-a-while Soup 'n Such Corn Bag Tournament will be held at the Quonset Hut. The adults (age 16+) bags tournament requires $5 entry fee per person. We'll draw for partners; winners get prizes. There'll be a separate section of bags for kids to play. Event starts at 1pm, followed by karaoke around 6pm.
Saturday Oct 6th @1:00PM
