It is with sadness that I must announce that the Great Lakes Campout at Gordon’s will be canceled this year.  It just doesn’t make sense to hold a gathering now given the COVID 19 situation.  We held off making the decision for as long as we could, hoping that the situation would change for the better.  That has not happened.  We could not justify bringing together a group of friends when doing so put them at risk.  We look forward to meeting again next year.

Sad to see this, hopefully it will just drive more people to come out next year though!

Too bad. I was really looking forward to this this year with everything so far. Thank you Steve for taking the time to organize this.

Did anyone let Gordon's know that we wouldn't be there?

Dave - I just messaged Jon and he said that he had not had any contact with them telling them that we were coming, so we don't need to tell them that we are not.

Was there last weekend, and they were looking forward to us being there. I told them the outing was cancelled.

I think we may still go just to get out. We have not gone camping all year.🚞

I'm thinking the same thing Mike. A few of the guys have contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in going and doing something anyway. I'm up for it any time.

Hi Rob, I think the original date was September 18-20, (that has been cancelled due to the virus situation).  Judy and I are planning on camping there from around the 14th or 15th thru the 20th. If you get that way we would love to see you!!

Mike, I talked to my wife about coming out, and as long as she can get the time off of work, we'll be there. If we can make it, it'll definitely be the weekend only. I hope to see you guys there.

I'm thinking of joining you Independent Coleman Collectors, over the weekend, probably F,S,Su(18,19,20)  Do you suppose there are enough of us to get our usual area?  I've only joined you the past couple years, but find I look forward to it all year.

Mike, have you had time to get back into manufacturing this year?  I could use a set of fount vice/clamps and a set of main valve removal sockets.  I got a check valve set from you last year, they are great.

I really enjoy collecting and restoring these old gems.  I look forward to seeing some other enthusiasts. 

I just picked up a Coleman Range, I might drag it up there in case any stovies join us. It is interesting.  I didn't even know Coleman made them until I encountered this one.

You are welcome to IM phone numbers if any of you want to coordinate.

We were planning on camping one way or the other that weekend. If people are going to be there we would probably go there instead of going to Pokagon.

We had something unexpected come up and have cancelled our camping trip to Gordons next week. At this point I don't think we are going to be camping at all this year, Hopefully we can all have a better camping season next year.

Sorry to hear that Mike. I hope that all is well. Maybe we can all get together soon. Maybe breakfast somewhere again.

Unfortunately, it looks like no one is going to make it.  Hopefully, they'll come up with a viable and safe vaccine and COVID will be behind us. I look forward to seeing you all next year.

Some of us will be there anyway. I'll get there after work on Friday and stay for the weekend.

We came, we saw, we had a good time even though we were the only ones that shows up. My buddy Mike, my son Ethan, and I camped for the weekend. It was a chilly, but good weekend. We got home about 2 hours ago.
