Time to start letting me know what you plan on bringing for the potluck Saturday evening (i.e. fruit salad, wheat rolls and butter. Be creative - appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, breads, etc ). :picnic:

Remember, dessert (home made ice cream and DO cobblers) will be provided. :thumbsup:

If anyone wants to do coffee, please let me know. Otherwise, you are welcome to prepare your own. :coffee:

Portion reminder: When you make a dish, plan on it feeding about 6-8 people and that should make enough for everyone without a ton of leftovers. If you are making a DO dish and using a 12" one, that can feed A LOT of people! :yes:

I will update the list as people let me know what they are bringing.

Doug,

Wish you and Nan could be with us for the weekend!

We dropped our teardrop off at the park last night and visited for awhile...okay, quite awhile. By the time we left (after 11:00) there were 7 teardrops set up!

By the time we go back tonight (will be after 8:00) there should be many more!

Looking forward to lots of good visiting time!

The outing was great.
Thank you to everyone that was apart of making this a great gathering.
The only thing that I regret is:
That I didn't go to any previous years' Camp-Inn Camp-Outt!!

:thumbsup:
Thank You

Dianne

On behalf of the Camp-Inn gang, I would like to thank everyone who joined us for our largest Camp-Inn Camp-Outt to date! You made it a huge success and it was great to see familiar faces as well as new ones.

Final count was 76 people (including kids), from 6 states (farthest away from the East was Massachusetts; from the West, Washington), 30 teardrops, 5 tents, a few day visitors and several canine teardroppers.

Even had the campground host (who has been campground host for all 5 of our Camp-Outts) kept coming over and had to bring his wife to see a Raindrop because he wants one (kind of a switch from his big motorhome :lol: ).

We had lots of great food, great weather and great fun!

We unveiled our new St. Croix Chapter of Tearjerkers Banner this weekend and as Co-Directors, Lori and I presented our first "official" Chapter award. Kudos to Jim C. for being the recipient! :applause:

Special thanks to: Jim C. for providing the banner; Tom C. for designing & creating Jim's award; and Mike for taking the group picture! You guys are awesome!

We thank you for sharing your weekend, your friendship and your enthusiasm of teardropping with us!

Pictures will follow from somone, I'm sure...I left that in more capable hands than mine! :lol:

See you next year!

The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

Camp Inn has provided great leadership within the tear drop community. They exemplify the spirit of this community not only in the hosting of a fun and big event but I believe it is apparent in the fine business they have grown in these past years. A spirit that could be partially defined as people doing the best they can to help other have fun while camping.
It truely is an honor to be recognized by the St Croix Chapter of TearJerkers at the 5th annual Camp Inn Camp Outt with an award that shows appreciation for promoting the fun, something that we all do in different ways. Thanks to Lori and Betsey and to all of the St Croix Chapter members.

Thanks Camp Inn - Camp Outt for hosting a great weekend. :D

It was nice to be comfortable with old friends and meet and make new friends. The weather co-operated and the food was great. Just wish it could have lasted longer, 4 days is never enough. Thank you Betsey for making the arrangements for Cranfest.

Thanks to the St Croix chapter for letting us Illinoisians (?) participate in your adventures. :thumbsup:

Hey Mike!

We missed you! But your great state of Michigan was well represented by two teardrops (and their friendly owners, of course!)

Hope you can join us next year!

Thanks Tina.......got em now! As for the mens coffee club, if you look at what is the center of attention, you'll understand. Maybe it was a man thing, but Tim is a very interesting person to listen to.
