Sorry Stratmans, I did not pick the last post to copy/paste.

Cornhole Tournament
What: Cynthia Thoede Memorial Cornhole Tournament
When: Friday, January 9 at noon
Where: Signup and tournament in front of site 156 on Wild Oak Lane
Entry Cost: $5

This year we are dedicating the tournament to Cynthia Thoede, a long-standing member of our Canopener family who passed away suddenly in September. She and her husband Jeff (Forum name Rivetng) were both known as fierce competitors once the old bag of corn started flying. The entry fee this year will be $5/competitor (or whatever amount over $5 you wish to contribute). All proceeds will be donated to the Gadsden Street United Methodist Church Children and Youth Programs, Pensacola, FL in memory of Cynthiaís dedication to the church and youth. Jeff will be attending and you will still have to fight him on the playing field!


In preparation for the tournament, we need additional cornhole boards (at least 2 more sets) and volunteers for judges/scorekeepers (instruction will be provided). Please sign up below if you are playing or can help. Last minute sign-ups at the tournament location are welcome. This is a single elimination tournament.


Rules and information on the game of cornhole are at: Official Rules for Corn Toss, Cornhole, Bean Bag and Bean Toss

Question on the water thing, are you saying that there will be water at the park but we will have to keep it running? So we leave our gray water tank valve open too? Just checking as I am not familiar with cold weather operations.

No. Leave your gray tank valve closed. As long as you have heat to keep the gray tank from freezing, you'l be fine. Better than letting water freeze in your slinky! Next morning when the temperature rises above freezing, that's soon enough to dump your gray tank.

They say forewarned is fore-armed, so I'm bringing my heated freshwater hose.

I don't normally fill the fresh tank so I hope they have water there. If water is running all night it must be a trickle then. This is hilarious, I am coming to the cold! We almost never see freezing at home!

Newbie here. Setting up tomorrow. Current state is that my tanks are empty. My hot water heater is empty as well. Will have my furnace on for tomorrow night. What else should I do or not do? I'm guessing not hookup fresh water hose. Pls dumb it down for me. Thx!!

**Edited to add Sunday's potluck**

At Thursday's potluck, we'll bring brownies. We should arrive at the park just about when this potluck starts.

Saturday is TBD.

Sunday, we'll bring bacon.

Looking forward to it!

Joanne

I would think the ranger wants the water to trickle to keep the campground faucet from freezing. Disconnect your water hose, reconnect it when it warms. Hope everyone has a good time, the days will be warm enough. The ranger is responsible for the park. Let your AS friends give you advice on the cold, there will be some with experience and will know what to do. Don't let the cold ruin the experience, let it be part of it. Memories. Peace, jim

setting up at Topsail

Rodsterinfl and Geowickey:

Topsail has full hookups on each site, you will have water and sewer.
When you arrive, don't hesitate to ask any Airstream folks around you how to do your hookups.....there are a lot of really experienced folks here, one of the great benefits of attending.

Basically you will have water available at your site, so hook up your city water hose on arrival. When deep freeze conditions exist, the rangers will come around and request you disconnect your fresh water hose from the faucet and they will set the faucet to "trickle" water all night so the fixture does not freeze and burst. Suggest you disconnect your hose from your trailer also.

Prior to deep freeze condition, suggest you put some city water in your fresh water tank so you will have some available for the short time you are disconnected from city water. No big deal really and only lasts for the deep freeze period.

Tom
