Can you repost this in early March. I'll probably need a reminder but this sounds like a great weekend. Thanks, Lynda

Update on Capmout Summer Weekend Workshop

We Need to start collecting the fees for the campground - for those who are definitely coming to hold a site we need to get $6 per night per person - (because we need to have $200 for the campground at a minimum to hold the facility - once we have the $200 minimum we will announce for everyone else that attendance is still open and you can pay on arrival) for the few friends of mine that are not on the forum but are coming, I have already collected fees. But in the next 2 weeks we need to get $160 worth of commitment for attendance please.
I have set up a paypal account for this purpose trackthesasquatch@gmail.com

Use the URL below to get Personalized Directions to the campground. Just open the link and click "get directions" and input your address and get door to door directions.

Nickerson Park Family Campground is nestled deep in the Natchaug River Valley, beneath the sights and sounds of civilization. Separated from the 12,000 acre Natchaug State Forest by the cool, clear, trout-stocked, Natchaug River, Nickerson Campground offers excellent trout fishing, swimming and relaxing family tube floats down the river. The Natchaug State Forest offers abundant wildlife with fine hiking, mountain biking and wonderful photo opportunities. Wildlife species include white-tailed deer, wild turkey, pheasant, squirrels, rabbits, mink, otter and more. Awaken to songbird melodies with the morning sun and when the campfire dies, and the conversation and coffee slows, enjoy star shows that rival those found in Montana’s Big Sky Country.


-Large lodge with a great fireplace!
-and a pavilion
