We are pleased to announce the second annual True North New England gathering. We had such an overwhelming positive response from last year’s event, we’ve decided to host it again. This will be a 3 day family event. It will be posted on the CCF and the True North forums as well as Facebook pages also. It will be a group effort but Karen and I will be hosting it at our home. We are in Whately Massachusetts which is in the middle of the state right off Route 91. It's very easy to get to. We have about 4 acres of very flat, mowed grass in the middle of quiet farm country. This will be a rain or shine event. If we have in-climate weather, we can move light-ups and food lines inside my building which is filled with antique engines, cars, tractors and other collections. We can easily accommodate 100+ camping folks from tenters to Rvs. we have a large fire pit that will be lit each night if wanted. I can also have a couple friends on hand to run some hit n miss engines.
 Friday and Saturday evening dinners and Sunday breakfast will be pot luck dishes. All other meals will be on our own. This worked well last year and it took the load off one person doing all the cooking. If you forget some food, there are multiple local farm stands and a large grocery store about 10 minutes away. We have 2 refrigerators in the barn that will be available to store cold dishes to help with warm July temps. Karen and I built an outdoor sink last year for dishwashing duties.
  In addition to the porta potties we will be renting, the bathroom in the barn has a sink, toilet, and hot shower for all to use.
  Pets are welcome but must be leashed and picked up after.
  One thing we have little of is shade so bring your own. Most folks camping won’t have shade till late in the afternoon.
  This will be a 3 day event and early birds are welcome, just let me know. It's a nice area with lots of other local activities available. On the Flyer, is other info like local interests and hotels nearby if you can't camp.

  This year we are looking to add a couple fun activities. Curt and Angie were planning a 200A field strip challenge during the 2017 Convention that unfortunately didn’t happen. We are planning to make this an event and it should be a lot of fun. We may also have a scavenger hunt. Prizes will be awarded.
  Below is more info. If you have any questions PM me. Thanks. Steve.

If it has a flame, I like it.
While it is certainly nice to find what you collect, in reality you must collect what you find.
