    Thursday, the 26th, 5pm

    Okay folks,

    We're all set up!

    We're on for beer / food o clock on Thursday, the 26th, 5pm. Thanks to Glenn 'FreeRangeQuark', we have managed to reserve the Chapter's Pavilion, located on the corner of Deischer Ln and Shaick Ave in Camp Scholler.

    See attached map.
    map.JPG

    Couple notes.

    1. This is a Chapter's Pavillion, and we had to have a Chapter reserve it - this was generously done by folks at Placerville's Chapter 512 for us. We will share some food and beer with them, now, won't we? :) What Im trying to say is that don't freak out if you see Chapter 512 Gathering on the Calendar Board at the Pavillion -- this *is* us. I will try to muster a nice yard sign with BPF logo for the event, like we did last year at my camp.

    2. I would need some idea of how much food to get - I am thinking grilling some sausage and veggies (I'll drag my grill along with me this year). Just let me know (click here to send me a message), please, so that I put you on my list.

    3. Speaking of food; if someone wants to pitch in and offer help, I'd really appreciate it! My default for KOSH this year would be sausage, get some store-made potato salad and the likes, etc.

    3.5 And speaking of food again, it'd be nice for folks to pitch in (we'll just put a jar out) - would, say, $5 / person sound reasonable?

    Dang. I only have a hall pass for Friday. Would have been cool to meet y’all. Thursday would only work if the hall pass has “night privileges”.

    Folks; pardon the delays and silence -- I am still trying to get everything set up with EAA so that we get the Pavillion to cook and drink.

    Given the poll, I'm leaning towards Thursday; which will also work better for us, since the beginning of the week is going to be more hectic :).

    I'll keep you posted.

    ... so Beej edited this to have my bottom post be on the top; which made this thread disappear from "newest threads" - so; bump! ;)

    We're all set up - details now in the first post thanks to Beej.

    See you all soon! Please don't forget to tell me (private message) to count you in for food alloc!

    I *just* realized the map disappeared from the first post :(

    I'll ask Beej to re-add it; meanwhile, here it is.

    Just a couple more weeks! :)

    Howdy folks!

    Well, Im all packed up and about to take off tomorrow!

    One thing that bugs me a bit is that I have got only two RSVPs for food -- please let me know if you're planning on eating, so that we have enough food, ASAP.

    Fi,
    You need to keep this at the top of the forum list as people firm up their plans for Oshkosh.

    Folks;

    A bit of an update.

    We’re all set up at the location noted in the first spot, on Deischer in Camp Scholler, West side of Paul’s Woods.

    Feel free to swing by and ask for me or Glenn (freerangequark). We’re working days and will be here evenings - so if you can’t make the Thursday official get together, at least stop by and have a cold one with us.

    I attached a couple pics to aid you identifying the camp.

    Now, to the topic of Thursday get together.

    It so happened that a chapter I am a part of (Waco 59) is having a corn roast at the same time we’re having the dinner and beer nite! So they’re our sides!!!

    To remind you, the get together is Thursday at 5 at the Chapters pavilion (Shaik and Deischer in Camp Scholler). Attached a picture of that too.

    It’s going to be great! IMG_1532192976.236417.jpg IMG_1272.jpg IMG_1271.jpg
