Just a heads up, I believe the rendezvous location is outside of the normal camping area and our permit for our group is not good until noon on Thursday the 9th so you may want to confirm the regulations for where you are.


It is in fact one of the BLM’s “permit only” group areas.

Everybody knows that you get one raffle ticket just for showing up with an RSVP. You can get a SECOND raffle ticket for participating in the Camp Cooking Competition! Details are HERE!

But wait! There's more...

If you WIN the Camp Cooking competition as a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place dish you will win one of three prizes offered just for the Camp Cooking competition!


1. Common Sense!

2. Respect for Others!

3. Self Sufficiency! It would be a shame if you suffered needlessly.

4. Tread Lightly! Please.

5. Speed limit in camp is 5 mph for safety! *Make no dust.

6. Kids MUST be supervised! *Feral children will be rounded up and placed in a holding pen full of candy.

7. Dogs MUST be leashed at ALL times. *Dogs found off leash will be fed a nuclear mixture of Cheez Wiz, bacon fat, and peanut butter.

8. Quiet time in camp is 1100 PM. *That's when the disco music stops.
