Campground Chat – October 2014

Financial Report— $1,878.18

The September breakfast was well attended and we did not run out of food this time. Everyone seemed to get enough to eat and enjoyed visiting with each other.

Labor Day week-end was great. The hog roast was really great. Thank you to Keith Craig, Skip Strawser and Dave Holsapple for being such great cooks. Thank you to Joan and Kelly for doing the 50/50. Thank you to Reece Mummy for drawing the ticket that made Nancy Rose the winner. Congratulations to Nancy. Thank you to Wendy and Kathy for doing the Monte Carlo. Those dedicated ladies ran a session at 3:00 then again at 7:00. They made $131.00 toward the activity fund. The poker run was a lot of fun. Bob Rose drew 1st place winning $12.00, Wanda drew 2nd place winning $8.00 and Dave Holsapple drew 3rd place winning $6.00. Thank you to Kathee Cotrell and Scott Hodgin for helping out with check stations. There were a lot of compliments on the KwikFire Band. Everyone seemed to really enjoy that band. There were still people enjoying when the finished performing. They also said they really enjoyed performing here and would like to do it again.

The September Camper meeting began with Jim Cull giving the financial report. The camper meeting was very well attended. Allen advised campers that the issue of requiring numbers was declined by Ken. There were quite a number of other issues presented by various campers. The campers requested Ken attend the October camper meeting. Ken tentatively agreed to attend. The issues, that campers had presented at the meeting was presented to Ken. Ken advised there would be no changes made in the operation of the campground. Ken advised Allen everything would remain the same as in the past.

There was a discussion about having the KwikFire Band back again next year. The campers voted to do so. There was mention of Tom Jung devoting his time and equipment to making the trail around the lake, usable for bikes, golf carts, jogging, etc. possible. Tim Huddleston hauled gravel and Tom cleared a path around the huge ruts. Even Allen trimmed some limbs. The trail is very nice and one is able to travel comfortably and enjoy nature. There was more cost than first anticipated. We are doing some extra events to help with some of the extra cost. Thank you guys, great job.

The October calendar was discussed. There will be a sausage pancake breakfast on October 4 from 10:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M. We will also have biscuits and gravy and coffee will be available. If you want a different drink bring your choice. There is no need to bring anything, but if you wish to do so please feel free. Come and enjoy the food and great company as this will be the last breakfast for this season.

The Halloween Party was discussed and scheduled for October 18 at 6:30. We had 13 pizzas last year and wasn’t quite enough. Campers decided to add a few more to make sure there is enough. Everyone that wants to decorate a pumpkin needs to do their own and have in for the judging by 7:00 P.M. There will be first, second and third prizes for the pumpkins. The hayrides will be from 5:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M. and that same time youngsters will be able to trick or treat from camper to camper, if they wish to do so. The party will begin at 6:30 P.M. at the club house. Youngsters and adults can dress in costume, if they desire. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded for costumes in the categories of prettiest, ugliest and most original.

This has been a great camping season. We hope everyone enjoyed all the activities. You are a great group of campers. Please know, it isn’t us that makes this fun. It is all of you that help and support that makes that possible. Thank you to all of you. We really do appreciate all of you.

It is that time of year again to think about getting ready for Winter. The water will be turned off according to the weather. Hopefully we can go all the way to the end of October. You will be notified by e-mail when the water will be turned off. Please remember, you do not actually need water to winterize your camper.
