It's that time again! Mark your calendar!

The Annual Fall Campout - October 6-8 at Cedar Creek WMA. If you wish to arrive on Thursday the 4th, you'll have plenty of company for the extra day. If you can't can't camp with us, come down for the day. Most planned activities will be concentrated on Saturday.

Cedar Creek is located south of Monticello on GA Hwy 212. Our camp site is across from the Check Station (N 30* 13' 45.1 W 83* 31' 36.1) on Checking Station Road. If Googling, google Cedar Creek Check Station or you might get directions to the range which is a different road off 212.

Watch this thread for more details. As classes, activities, etc. are added, the details will be added to this main post as well.

A quick overview of this years classes and activities:

Cast Iron: Care, maintenance, seasoning, etc - by Starlady

Solar: including whole house solar, by JohnGalt1

Air Rifle Marksmanship Contest: This will be held in camp so you don't have to g to the range. Use your rifle, my rifle, or any other rifle entered (If you bring a ringer, rifle, you have to share)

HF Amateur Radio Hands-on Demo: Get on the air! A good friend and President of a local Amateur radio club will be acting as "Control Station" meaning even unlicensed people can get on the air and learn, and if the conditions are right - who knows? Maybe talk around the world!

Auction! If you've been to our campouts before, you know all about this. It's our only fundraiser and it keeps us in the important stuff like internet and toilets. If you're not familiar - bring a donation or two or ten and we'll auction it/them off. And you might pick up a bargain while you're at it.

Watch this space and this thread for more details!

 ::) UGH, Got plans already but maybe we can make it later in the afternoon. Anxious to see what time the "solar" will happen, later in the day hopefully?! I will keep watching to see what's happening
