This year’s spring campout was a very small group!  It seems almost everyone was scared off by the extremely wet spring weather.  Don and Karen Bellemare and family braved a driving rain storm to arrive late Friday night from CT, and they are very efficient at setting up in the extreme dark!  Art Derry & Barb had just come back east from New Mexico.  Art took great pride in maintaining the nightly campfire.  Jeff and Adele Burton were as fun and helpful as ever, and are looking forward(?) to being Wagon Masters of the Fall campout.  The camper-less Bidwell family managed to make a trip up to visit and add some laughs and food to the pot luck supper.  Only Pam Bidwell and her friends were brave enough to sleep in a tent.  Bob hopes to have a plywood camper built onto his new Jeep by the fall campout (just kidding!).  Mark Olszewski and his boys had an enjoyable weekend with some of their neighborhood friends, relaxing by the side of the West River, while the boys played in the water.

In summary, there were 25 people at the pot luck and as usual there was plenty of wonderful food, and very few leftovers.  The campground was very open and scenic, with nice grassy sites, nestled in the base of the mountains.  Sunday morning it was time to say goodbye as a breakfast of donuts, eggs and bacon was served, and the smaller-sized coffee urn Kevin thought to bring worked out great!  Despite everyone’s fears the rain held off for the entire weekend, the sun was shining, and good times were had by all.
