Lone Star Coleman Fall Gathering. October 7-9,2022. Corsicana,Texas

We’ll be meeting at the Lake Halbert Pavilion in Corsicana. For those not familiar it’s a huge pavilion, really nice, lots of nice picnic tables. Looks like this:

This is a link to where it is on the map. We park in the lot across the street from the pavilion.

Some folks set up tents around the pavilion and stay Friday and Saturday night. There are a few camper spots in the park reserved through the city. Several motels nearby. An auction of donated items is held Saturday afternoon to raise funds for the next gathering rental. Great way to get rid of Coleman related stuff you don't need in your collection any longer.

If you haven’t been to a gathering it’s a great time to buy, sell, trade, and see Coleman lanterns and stoves you won’t see anywhere else. Lots of fettling and experts and experience on hand. Super nice people that enjoy our hobby. Bring your stuff out, show it off or get it running. See y’all there!

Yup, I had a great time last time. I'm contemplating camping there this time.

On another note: If you are looking for something (Lantern, lamp, stove, parts, etc.) list your wants in the thread here. It's likely that someone might have exactly what it is you're looking for, and then you can meet up for a no-shipping deal. If you're bringing something to sell/trade, also list it here as you may pique someone's interest...and the more the merrier at the gathering. ;)

As for myself, i've got a fair bit of commons I'm looking to move, 220's and some 228's, along with some 413's and 425's. Not planning on bringing them unless someone needs one.

I am looking to buy a slant, if someone has too many of them. :shock:

OnEdit: Only 66 days to go!

I am planning to attend atleast Saturday. Only thing I am looking for at the moment is bday lanterns. 6/71 or 4/75. (Not commons but will atleast entertain the idea of one). Look forward to it. Also this time please don’t ask for a stiff breeze.

Have to ask, because I can't find this anywhere. Can someone quickly describe what a "slant" lantern is...? Thanks.

K, may have answered my own question...the valve wheel is pointed in the wrong direction.

Greetings, Looking forward to it.
I think that I may have a slant down in the lantern room.

I'm pretty sure one of us does, but are you coming to the meet in Corsicana? Main reason for asking is because that is what this thread is all about. If not, you may have better luck in the classifieds.

We're coming up on a month to go before the gathering. Get your "stuff" requests posted up here and hopefully you'll be rewarded. I did manage to find a slant, so that's good. I am apparently always going to be looking for R48 radiants though...and I need 5. :shock:

I'm hoping the weather will cool down some, at least in the evenings. I've had about enough of heat n' humidity!

Two weeks out. I know we have a lot of new forum members from the great state of Texas. Had several first timers in May that have been looking forward to October. Lots of buy, sell,trade. Most of my humble collection has been built through the gatherings. Lots of super friendly people that gladly share their knowledge of our hobby. You folks from Oklahoma and Louisiana are more than welcome too,we’ve got a few regulars from there. Anywhere else is welcome also,but you better leave soon to get here on time. The details were posted earlier,but if you have any questions,just ask.

I have spent the last few weeks in Europe. Was hoping to find something gpa related. Only found some wickies. Nothing gpa. So other than Petromax style I guess I am looking for a Tilley or something built in this region. Thanks.

Folks, we're ONE WEEK AWAY! :shock: Time to start getting your kit together if you haven't already. I'll be camping there this time, so I'm looking forward to a few days of kicking back and chit-chat over the cracker barrel. Also, if you've got requests, don't forget to post them here.
