To Sign Up
We have the sites for the Manresa campout sept
six sites for Friday and Sat night (55-58 and 62 and 64) and three more
sites Sat night only (52-54). This gives us a capacity of 48 for
friday and 72 for Sat. Our sites are basically the same as last
Dave and Steve (not all Daves and Steves - just the ones who know
who you are, can one of you contact me 8597725) have volunteered to do
Sat dinner and Sunday breakfast for the group. Does anyone want to step
up to do Sat. lunch or should that be on your own? All other meals
are on your own.
For those that have not been about, have the people
show up Friday night the others Sat morning, It is a laid back
of beach play and campfire bonding.There are no official activities but
I would predict that Cole and others will run a Sandcastle contest
(bring shovels and sand tools) Bill D and/or Mike S might bring a
that would consist of avoiding a ball. Can someone come up with a
Volleyball net?Any and all other group camp or beach games are welcome.
If you have firewood at home bring a box (don't buy it at camp until we
know we need it). People who get free parking will be in charge
Cost is 50 dollars for Dad and one kid; 25 dollars for additional kids.
Please send checks (now) to:
100 Timbercove Dr
Any questions call Chris at 408 8597725. Cancellations will be
refunded; no shows will not. If we have extra money it will
go into a slush for a future event if we are short I will ask for a few
dollars. Bring six dollars a night for parking.
If you have new people please forward this to them .This has
always been a great event don't miss it.
Parking and Unloading
There is a 20 minute unloading area near
the campsite. It helps to bring a wagon to carry your gear to the site.
There is a $6.00 fee for parking. Our campsite registration includes
parking for one vehicle and entitles us to park two vehicles per site.
If all the paid sites are taken, please pay the fee and let me know
about it, I will reimburse you. If you arrive after all the parking
spots are taken, you may have to park outside the park, after unloading
You may check in anytime
after 2:00. Our campsites for Friday night are numbers 57 through 61.
They are reserved in Rich Hamm's name.
Select your own spot in
one of our campsites and pitch a
tent. A maximum of 8 people are allowed per campsite. Bring whatever
camping gear you think might be useful for the group and we
will share stoves, lanterns, water jugs, etc. Last year we could have
used at least one additional camp stove. Bring your own Friday dinner,
Saturday breakfast and snacks and beverages. In the past, some families
set up camp, and then
went out for Friday dinner at a nearby restaurant.
