Family Reunion Forum
I need input on having a campout. There is a lake near my house and they have a lot of activities. We have no hotels here but there are two motels. Only family from Los Angeles will be invited. No long distance folks. This will be a small thing. Only about 75 or so people.
I can rent a few spaces on my own so maybe if someone had an rv they could reimburse me later. They have jet skiing, boating,fishing, courts for basketball, swimming, a giant waterslide ,ect. The only thing they don't have is a place for my nephews to ride their ATV's.
So we can have a picnic and those who have tents and sleeping bags can stay over night. At the bottom of the mountain they have restaurants, and a target , starbucks and a walmart. And there is a store at the lake.
I think I could try to get a ranger to speak on the proper way to set up a camping area, and the does and don'ts of camping. I didn't want any tv's or radios there, but some people would go stir crazy.
But we could roast weiners and marshmallows and tell ghost stories. Since we would not have a minister present, we would just say prayers and say what we were thankful for.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I also wanted to purchase a bench and plant a tree and dedicate it to my parents.
Please give me some feedback.
