This was our first gathering for this area, and it went great. Everybody had a great time. I had the pleasure to meet some of the other members of the ICCC as well as other Coleman enthusiasts some of which received ICCC membership applications while there with a lot of interested people that will probably join.
Friday night we did a light up, and had a total of 30. Saturday night we did another one and got a total of 75 lit. A friend of mine named Tim Oliver brought his huge BBQ grill, and cooked a great meal for all of us. We all pitched in and donated varius things to grill. Saturday we got hit by 2 good rain storms, but thankfully we were all dry under the pavilion. Some of our camping gear got wet, and was able to get it dry again at the laundry on site.
