    This sounds like fun. We are fairly new to the pup camping. Didnt get to do as much last year as we wanted to. I am not on this site a lot either but camping with fellow puppers would be great...and what a way to learn some great tricks and tips.
    We are not quite 3 hours south of St Louis so that wouldnt be to far for us. I hope we can make it and maybe make some new friends too.

    Re: Missouri/Illinois folks - Rally June 18-22

    Okay. Now that I just posted the other post, I just went into the lake's website. I looked at the rates for the McNair Group site B...and it says 120.00 nightly. Call me silly, stupid or whatever, but is that per site per night?
    Please, can you post the exact link I need to go to so I can see the exact campground, see the rates, etc.?
    Thank you,
    Leanne

    Here you go Leanne! http://www.recreation.gov/camping/Coles_Creek_Rec_Area_Il/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=73129&topTabIndex=CampingSpot

    This is Cole's Creek at Carlyle Lake. We are in loop 4, site 89. I know folks are trying to get near that so we're all kind of in the same area. :) Hope to see you guys there!

    The rate should be $14. per night.

    Re: Missouri/Illinois folks - Rally June 18-22

    Hey guys -

    I know people are really starting to think about camping now that the weather is sloooowly starting to improve. Here are some thoughts I have for the Rally, please feel free to add any suggestions!! This is our first rally, so we want it to be great!

    We'll be arriving on Thursday sometime in the afternoon. I would like to have a "roster" beforehand (this is why I'd like everyone to post what site they'll be in, and the names/ages/species [;)] of the folks that will be camping. That way, as people arrive, the meeting and greeting can begin!

    Friday evening, I'd like to host a more "official" meet n' greet around the campfire. I'm thinking bring-your-own-chair and we'll have marshmallows and s'mores fixin's and drinks.

    Saturday (or Sunday, depending upon how long folks are staying!) having some kind of group dinner, possibly at one of the shelters depending upon how many people wind up coming. More details to be worked out later.

    Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! I'm already looking forward to a great rally. [:D]

    As much as I would LOVE to come and meet some pup friends, we already have a long trip to WI planned for the first week of June. Sounds like another one bites the dust for me.

    Just checking in to see if anyone else has booked. If so, please post your site number, number of people/k9s attending. I plan to start the early stages of putting together the group dinner in early May.

    Come on out! It'll be lots of fun!!! [PU]

    Group Dinner - Saturday Night

    Hey everyone -

    Getting to be about time to start planning the group dinner for Saturday Night of the rally. SO....it will definitely be a potluck. The question is...do we plan a "menu" and have everyone fill in what they'd like to bring, or do we just ask everyone to post what they're bringing and we get what we get?

    Thoughts?

    I'd like to get this nailed down by May 10th, at the latest.

    Thanks!

    Re: Group Dinner - Saturday Night

    Going to start getting this together in the next few weeks. As of right now, I think we have a small enough group to do it at a site rather than spending money to rent a pavillion. So unless we get a bunch of folks signing up at the last minute...that's what we'll do.

    Comments, thoughts and suggestions are very welcome!! Please reply below.

    Re: Group Dinner - Saturday Night

    We just did this a few weeks ago. We usually have Happy Hour snacks and we make dinner out of that. This time I posted that we were having a potluck dinner and to please let me know what everyone was bringing so we wouldn't have 5 pots of baked beans. Well, only received about 3 responses, but dinner was a huge success anyway. Out of about 25 / 30 campers, we did not have any duplications. The surprise of seeing what people brought was half the fun !

    Sorry, my wife and I have cancelled our reservation for this weekend. We have some personal things that popped up (sorry for the pun) for this weekend. We hope to catch up with you somewhere else.
