Announcement

The date for the Salamonie gathering is set for Oct. 10-11.

I have secured site #222 for the sake of the view, but the inside of the circle would be great for the gathering group.

Check the map attached for sites and reservations.

Reservations (at this point) should not be a problem, but don't wait too long into the summer. :thumbsup:

:scratchthinking: Ok Kurt, are you guys talking of two different outings?
We've been reading and looking at coming out to Prophetstown Park if there is to be a gathering and then you mention Salamonie???? on Oct 10-11. Is Salamonie something celebrated or another park??? If another park is it near by?

tjix, there is a planned gathering in October at Salamonie lake in northern Indiana.

The Prophetstown discussions are for a potential (informal) gathering near Lafayette, Indiana.

The "Feast of the Hunter's moon" event is in late September and is part of the Prophetstown thread.

So far there is no "planned" gathering in Lafayette but it sounds like one is brewing.

Stay tuned :thumbsup:

send me a "pm" with your email address so I can put you on our mailing list for the gatherings and updates.

It's a shame they are so close together maybe in 09 we can plan around the feast of the hunters moon. It's a neat experience for young and old alike. The State park is only 9 miles from the Purdue University Stadium and the city provides free hourly rides to and from the feast which is 18 -20 miles from the park. ( about 10 from the stadium) The city transfer elimiates the parking fees and hassle of getting in and out as well as front door delivery for those that have some trouble with long walks. I didn't start this thread to confuse anyone. Salamonie is a PLANNED gathering. Prophetstown was only brought up as an option for a cool weather gathering site fairly centrally located and convenient for the Illinois members.

Bob, it doesn't mean we can't do both. (I need to check with my "betterhalf" before I commit)

The "Feast" looks like a good time and reminds me of the "Mississinewa 1812" re-enactment.


So many things ...so little time.. :(

The Blacksmithing and knife making is real interesting.
And it not just everywhere you can see a sheep standing patiently while his/her wool is combed ,spun ,dyed with onionskins or berrys, and knitted into a sweater. Really makes you appreciate Wally world :lol:

While there are reenactments it is really more of an up close look at early pioneer life and the skills needed just to survive. You can ask questions of the candle makers , the blacksmith , the wheelwright and the dulcimer builders and others. I imagine there are 70 to 100 trades/skills represented
