We will arrive Saturday, October 13 2018 at Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay in Door County Wisconsin. Check out on Saturday, October 20. You can go earlier and/or stay later, but those are the dates we have.
We will stay at the Daisy Field South 2 campground. Stacey & I are at site 77. There is a loop that we can all get around and use the center area for a common area for us all to meet and party. I looked at the week earlier…was a little concerned with the temperatures, but 1/2 of the loop was already booked. The highs are 56 and lows 38 degrees for that time of year. Nice bon fire weather. There is a $38 annual fee to get in or $11 a day…we can pay that when we get there.
The campsite was $231 with a $9.65 registration fee for a grand total of $240.65.
It appears centrally located from a lot of stuff…hiking trails, wineries, orchards, light houses, galleries, etc etc etc.
So if you would like to go, please get out there and get registered as soon as possible. ALSO, please let me know when you register and what site you selected. I am hoping we can all get together.
This will be the first event for our new club. We hope you can join us in Bayfield, WI.
