Why - The purpose of the get together is to bring like minded individuals from the Heartland/Midwest region together to meet face to face. There will be classes given (more on that later) and time to socialize and make connections. Attendees will be able utilize the campground all week long, or just attend one or more days of classes, if they wish.
Why is this "Part 2" you ask? Well, in April a get together was held at Pomme De Terre Lake, MO. It rained buckets all week long. To say it dampened attendance is an understatement. There were about 100 members that said they were going. With their family members, guests and friends there were between 150-200 people expect. Only 21 souls braved the rains and frigid temperatures. As we were sitting around the camp fire on the final night, it was decided that we'd like to give it a second (albeit less ambitious) try in the fall, So, here we are.
We are still working out the details, so this is only the first announcement regarding this event. More details will be forth coming concerning the classes and activities, agenda, venue directions and details, and more. So please, check back to this thread often, as we are going to try and update everyone as much as possible on how things are progressing. If you are certain you wish to attend, and don't mind giving up an email address, you can PM with your SB name (or what ever "nom-de-prep" you wish to use) and email, and we will put you on a mailing list that will be used get info out more directly and discreetly than posts on the SB.
