The new chicken grill rocked the house! That's Paul on the left, and Jeff on the right, between them they cooked most of the food we ate that weekend! (With help from the kitchen staff of course!)


Things were very organized this year - mostly due to Neighbor Bob letting us use a few acres of his property, and Artie "The Corn Guy" laying out some nice wide roads. (notice that you can park at your campsite)


The "Canadians" as they are called were back again this year, but they were missing a very important member of the group.  R.I.P. Marty
