Take off your thinking caps and lower your standards, its time for...



Our famous annual tradition is almost upon us. As many of you know, it is the second weekend in August (10, 11, & 12th). This year it will be held at...wait a minute, didn't you read the last bulletin??!! Well in case you forgot, it will be held at Bothe-Napa Valley State Park. Where is that you ask?


The link for directions is below. If you get lost, look for one of the following:

1. A large recognizable landmark, such as Brian's tent.

2. Tom Burke's remains along the roadside, still griping the map in his dying hand.

3. A campsite that looks like a Serbian interment camp.

4. Our flag (see below)





As always, it's bring your own food and booze (not to say I won't mix a few for close personal friends). We have four campsites together so when you get there, you'll probably find us but I'll try to post a note on the bulletin board.
