It's close enough that I have it in my calendar.

What should attendees plan on bringing and what level of attendance do you expect?

Is this venue dog friendly?

Thank you!

Any overnight accommodations for those that might consider coming from a distance? It’s Public Day at the brewery and I’m supposed to help out, but I’ll make it work out to do both since they’re not far apart.

There are campsites and a couple cabins. Very basic stuff- think old army bunk beds and latrines. There is also a hotel with a bar within walking distance. 
Expected attendance is basically whoever posts here to say they're coming; if you want to bring some snacks and/or beverages they would be welcome.

I will have to ask the Ranger about dogs, but he's a dog person himself, so fingers crossed.

I think I can answer for Will here, NO, you do not need to be a member of the forum, just show up and bring things to sell, trade and/or show off.  Hope you're able to attend.

Hey all, I found out this coincides with the Dunkirk Flea Market, Which I never miss. It's still totally happening, but if you get to Camp before I do (I should be there early afternoon) and need help or to find your way, contact Ranger Wally at (716)331 8442 or just find him, he'll be near Main Camp.
I can supply adult beverages if they're allowed. [sHa_yes2]

YTBD. IF there are no scouts or council reps on the property they may be allowed. Otherwise there's the Suites with the bar nearby.

I know the hour is almost upon us, but I have a pile of commons and thought I would list them, maybe someone's birthday lantern or just a project.  Conditions vary, but the price will be VERY reasonable.  Let me know if there is one you want me to bring.

Nice gathering today!  I will post some pix tomorrow, I got home around 10 PM and it is rather late now, after getting the car unloaded and putting everything away.  It was great to meet some like-minded GPA sorts and put faces to some forum names.

Yes, it was a bit warm!  At one point I counted 40 lanterns operating, which included my five wickies, and Mr. Wilson was running at least one heater.
