I know gatherings really don't have a hard itinerary but are there any group plans. We will probably only be able to spend 1 night just want to know which one would be best 8)

We'll probably do the usual meet 'n greet on Friday night, a potluck on Saturday night, and then depending on the size of the group, there may be other activities - these will be planned as the gathering grows.

Look forward to seeing you!
