Terrific! We do so hope to see you too. Yes, there are plenty of adjoining sites available. See the first post for contacts and details
I'm certain Lou will be able to expound on this. We have three sets of volunteer greeters between noon and two but do plan to arrive whenever it is convenient for you, we'll all be there eventually. The potluck will be on Saturday. We will be having a campfire with traditional s'mores. I've got the 5# Hershey bar to give us all our sugar fix for the month
There are game courts, swimming, fishing, and boating on the premises. And we thought an open house tour of units would be fun. We tried to resist the urge to over structure activities as the key to this gathering is to get acquainted with one another.
As of yesterday the list of registered attendees is as follows:
We also have visitors coming in for the day, including Roger who perhaps with a little coaxing will be able to tell us everything about the locale.
This list is not complete but in doing a review of posts I have compiled the following;
Lou is making his to die for smoked chickens, Steve is bringing his wife's famous olive nut spread, veggies, and crackers, Lou Loudruff is making sloppy joes, Annie is adding the sweet potatoe casserole, Jim (apple 1) will have a supply of firewood, and the rest of us are taking a "guess what" approach to our offerings,
As Roger mentioned there is a plethera of sights and activities in the area. One of my favorites in Frankenmuth
is the town square with with clock tower. You park centrally and have access to all as you take a walking tour about Frankenmuth. The bell tower and clock
performance is a highlight and moving figures emerge from opening doors depicting the story of the Pied Piper along with the narrative. World famous chicken
is served by servers in Bavarian costume. River Place
has a double decker paddlewheel riverboat, waterfall, and a huge wooden covered bridge. A Magical Town
will make a halogram of you and your party and place you in an extraordinary minature lifelike town setting, complete with movie theatre and movie showing. As you move along the exhibit enacted dramas appear and give you a peek at various "lives" within it's town walls. A-Maze-N Mirrors
lets you find your way through a maze of mirrors and glass and is quite the experience! Free nightly laser shows
and street performers add to the festival environment.
Also in the immediate area, Birch Run
sports every outlet store you can think of and Bonner's Christmas Wonderland
is the world's largest Christmas store illuminated nightly.

Do you know how many forumers are planning to attend? If we sign up soon, will we still get a spot with the rest of the group?
