Camping at the lake
Hi everybody! It's time again to think about going camping at the lake near Oakridge with our friends here at City's Edge.
Because I need to reserve camp sites and Sam and Saundra need to plan meals we really need to get an idea of about how many people will be coming this year. Please let us know as soon as possible by signing up on the sheet. There are pamphlets at the building as you come in to give you more details on the trip. I will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Can you remind us what the dates are? I will put them on the site calendar!

So far - I know 4 people are going. That means we can plan to have steak, lobster and creme brule(?) If more come - we may have to plan for less expensive - but more "fun" food. Saundra

Mark and I are coming. We just keep forgetting to sign the little clip board (We still intend to do so). So add two more lobsters for us.

Probably us too (r three and a half rather - no Will that weekend), but not for sure yet. I don't like lobster though. Can I substitute a filet mignon? ;)

Boogy and I are coming. Pretty sure the Ragers (2), Banhams (3) and Bowler are coming too. They can pipe up if I heard wrong. Does that mean no lobster? How about crab & bacon souffle?

Just thought I should let you know that the map link to the campground is wrong. I wouldn't want you all to go to Washington while we are in Oregon.
Here is a better map link. The directions on the back of the brochure I passed out at CE works great too.
Link: Packard Creek Camp

Ok, well, when the map comes up it is blank. Just click "get directions" button and the map will appear. Crazy link, but then I had to construct the map myself. I guess we are going off the grid.

Hey - I hear lobster is way over-rated anyway and I have not learned the proper technique for crawdads - so hopefully the latest menu plan will do. Hope to see many, many at the Lake. We are planning to skim around in the fold a boat. Saundra

Thanks for the map warning, Debbie. Google Calendar auto-creates a map link based on whatever you type in the "Location" field, so I cannot really fix it. I did put a warning about the bad link and a link to your accurate map in the event description.

re: Camping at the lake
just found this discussion link (thanks Bethie) and wanted to make sure that whomever needs to know is "in the know" that the three kids and I are coming - also planning to bring Stacy ElMoussi with us as soon as she get's off work on Fri evening. We signed up on the list - but I don't see any mention of us here.

Camping: Food Info
Anyone not on the CE Google group, here's what Saundra sent out this evening:
Annette kindly posted the menu on the churches web site that we will provide for Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, and Sunday breakfast and lunch. Because this is a 'dry camp' experience and the numbers of people, we are limiting hot food options to toasting at breakfast (plus tea and coffee) and Saturday grill, with grilled bratwurst on Sunday am. Please feel free to bring your own equipment/utensils/food, etc. to cook at your own site, but also know you are welcome to take whatever we are offering as well. We also recommend you bring your own water, drinks, favorite snacks for your own snack attacks. We will have plenty of food and will try to have it available when you want it - as long as we get some time on the water. We wish we could to everything for everyone as we appreciate being a part of Citys Edge Church community, but we are limited. Thanks. Love, Saundra and Sam
