    Who would be up for a gathering at Schodack Island State park in New York? This would not be an official rally but a few of us went last year and this year more people wish they had been able to go. So I'm posting this to see who would like to join some Portal friends in NY in the Spring.

    Very interested. I have to look at the dates. These are before school's out, so no extra long weekend for Jim.

    Same for us but we let Jake play hooky for one day and go up on Thursday after work/school. [:D]

    Agreed! Especially at the end of the school year!

    I'm in! I need to check dates. The April weekend might conflict with the post-production meetings re my current theatre commitments. I have a production meeting next week, so I might have a better idea then.

    I just went there for the first time last weekend, will be a usual spot for me now as I'm from Albany (and that its open into Dec!), would be neat to meet some of the ppl I've learnt alot from in the portal!

    I will have to look at the dates as well. I can tell you I probably won't be able to make Mother's day weekend though. I will let you know.

    I voted for Mothers Day, but depending on weather (camper thawed out I could do April as well, or June)

    Just bring Deb's hair dryer out and melt the April snow off.... :)

    I wasn't sure if you'd be in for June considering Mike's PA rally is a couple weekends later. I had been tempted to throw out the weekend before the rally as an option so Pat could make it a long trip to the U.S. Didn't know if you and Deb would be able to do both back to back. I know NY and PA are a bit of a hike for you...and anyone else already planning on doing the PA rally.

    It's a great campground. Strawhouse (Pat) discovered it last year on a layover trip in the states. We went there Memorial Day weekend this past year and really had a great time.

    It's a great spot isn't it?? You should definitely join us. The New England crew (plus Shelmily) is a fun group if you can get past some of the teasing that happens! [LOL][LOL][LOL]

    Bwa-ha-ha :D
    It's okay, Mike. We love you too, but I would hold out for the Oreo chocolate trifle...and please share. That bowl was scraped clean by the time I got to it in Vermont--and that was before I even got through the main dishes! :eek: Yes, Steph, you did warn me to get up there early.

    Gee Pat, if it makes you feel any better, I was able to get enough of Stefie's trifle for two people. Oh, and it was yummy ! [:D]
