It is time to start planning to attend the 11th Annual Fall Great Lakes Camp Out. It will again be held at Gordon’s Campground which is located eight miles north of Kendallville, Indiana. Their address is 9500 E. 600 S. Wolcottville, IN 46795 and their phone is 260-351-3383.
The camp out will officially begin Friday September 20 and end Sunday September 22, but many will show up Thursday. Come enjoy the fellowship and the opportunity to buy and sell interesting gas pressure appliances. Bring lamps, lanterns, stoves, heaters, and irons and parts to display, sell and/or trade. All collectors, regardless of where they reside, are invited to this gathering. Attendees do not have to be members of the ICCC.

The fee for camping is $18 per night, same deal as the last few years. (Normal fee is $27). Your $18 buys you the right to set up one tent or RV.  You can also put up an easy up or screen tent.  They will hold the Sassafras and Tulip Tree areas under the name Coleman.  Normally, they don’t operate using reservations, but please call ahead and make a reservation as many of the perks they offer us are based on the number of reservations they have for our group.  When you call mention the group reservation and make sure you mention the deal. If you don’t make a reservation, you won’t get the deal. Lacy is our contact person at Gordons. 
For those who are not interested in bringing camping equipment, Gordon’s does have rental campers and cabins.  The rentals are in the front area of the campground, and they would offer 10% off the regular rate to our group and also 10% off on the golf cart rentals.  There are several hotels nearby including a Holiday Inn Express, Best Western, and a Super 8. There will be a $2 per day charge for a visitor pass for those not staying at Gordons. 

When you post that you are going to attend, please let us know the day and time you are planning to arrive and how many will be camping in your tent or RV.

Looking forward to seeing you at Gordon’s.

This years light up will be in honor of Jerry Engbring. Please bring any thing that you purchased or was gifted by Jerry.

If you don't have anything purchased from or gifted by Jerry, a lantern that was made close to his birthday - July 1937 would also be appropriate.  

If men could learn from history, what lessons it might teach us! But passion and party blind our eyes, and the light which experience gives is a lantern on the stern, which shines only on the waves behind us!

I will be arriving Friday morning, my son will be arriving Friday evening till Sunday. 
I’m planning to come out on Wednesday evening and stay through Sunday.  I’ll be tenting.  Bob and Denise Boyd may be coming as well—requiring a separate tent site (hopefully adjacent).  Their presence is tentative, depending on the impending birth of their next grandchild.
