T-shirt order is in. Those of you who opted for “ship to home”, they should get to you by Friday June 3rd, all others, stop by my trailer, Coleman, of course! Stop by to pick up your shirt(s)! Site 403, I believe! Peace out!

Hey! All attending! Please get some funds to Sean Duncan so he can forward it to Jon, our master and volunteer barbecue chef. As you know, supplies have skyrocketed, so do me a big favor and pay Sean asap! Bless you all!

I’ll be able to get Friday off so I just made a reservation in the group tent area for Friday and Saturday night.

I’ll also sign up / PayPal today for John B’s BBQ - 2 of us for Friday and just myself for Saturday. (my brother Rich will be with me for Friday night).

Early bird pricing for Jon Bushaw’s BBQ dinners, paid through Sean Duncan, have now expired!
Please, still order dinners if you are coming! We need to get funds to Jon so he can purchase all that expensive meat he needs to feed us!

Good afternoon everyone unfortunately we wont be camping with you this year due to our housing crisis and tammy just got home from a month in cooper hospital in downtown tropical Camden nj (if you know anything about south Jersey the previous statement will make you chuckle) she has a P.I.C. line in to get more nutrition in her. So having said that Saturday we will come on Saturday to visit with you all and say hi so see you all on Saturday

I highly doubt I’ll make it!
I’m moving my shop with 37,000 parts by the end of June and have been putting off the prep for the move.
Anyone on the fence for attending I’d suggest you attend. It’s a great time.
I may send Sean some $ for meals in case things change!
Thank you Gary and everyone who helps with this event. I met some great people last year who seem to pop up at other gatherings. See y’all soon.
Thank you!

Gary,

Are you giving the 'no rain' guaranty this year? You didn't last year and we saw what happened.


Kevin,

I hope you're able to make it this year. Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow? :)

Thanks, Bruce! General Chamberlain’s “fix bayonets” charge down Little Round Top will be postponed, then! The General Duke Downs midnight raid on the cabins is still on!

I suppose I should call ARC one of these days and book a spot. Still not sure if I'll be there one night or two.

Phil, sorry to hear that you guys wont be able to camp, I’m sorry to hear about the housing issues, and am praying that Tammy is getting all the nutrition she need with the pic line. The line about Camden did make me laugh. See you Saturday.

A gathering is something anyone who visits the forum should attend! This is my first post and the first gathering I've attended. Lots to see, a whole lot! I had an unknown lantern identified and met lots of friendly members. Thanks everyone for an enjoyable morning!

Gary sorry I'm not going to make it. even for the day. But you have to do the General Duke Downs Midnight Raid on the cabins. I was in one of the cabins that night (jail house). That was one of funniest and awesome things I seen. The General had it well planned and organized.

Well, it was another swell East Coast gathering! Tons of great trades, sales and lanterns lit. Most of all, many first timers got to experience the fun. Met many great people and heard many great stories! Next year, it will be June 7-11 at ARC once again.

Look like you guys had fun. I'm sorry I missed it but come hell or high water well be there in 23 but I might have to contact a amish person to buy a horse and buggy to get there. Again me and tammy miss all of you and the decision to not attend had a lot to do with being homeless essentially and tammy being in the hospital again in downtown tropical Camden nj. Me and the kids are staying at my brother's house and are trying to find a place to land but that is seemingly impossible task when your credit is trash but I keep trying we're starting to look at relocating to the Carbondale PA area now too if I can find a job and a place but that too is difficult

Thank You Gary - great event.

Campground is much improved - brand new pool, covered picnic pavilion for kids, and free mini golf.

Tenting area is being expanded - enlarged.

Campground is also adding a Wi-Fi booster for the back of the campground.

Restrooms are cleaned every two hours and are minty fresh!

You are literally camping on the civil war battlefield.

Well, I want to say for someone who is reluctant to walk up to someone's campsite and start a convo, I had a great time. As I sat at my site and people watched, many in the group came up to me and made sure I was informed on what was going on. It was sincerely appreciated. It's a long 5+ hour drive, but was worth it. Even with a tire blowout that took out my gray tank valve, it was still worth it. Next year I will be better prepared and spend more time in the tent area. Thanks to everyone, I look forward to next year.

MG,

If you enjoyed Gettysburg, you should consider going to the True North gathering in Hannibal NY. Based on being in Hamburg, Google shows this trip is half the time. The gathering will be September 23rd,24th,and 25th. I'll post an announcement separately.

You may want to consider adding a first name in your profile or in your signature.
