    I was wondering if anyone from the area might like to do a meet and greet kind of thing in the state.

    I live in Western PA, Butler County.

    Lets see who is interested.




    OK So this is going to happen.
    June 1st.....Rain or Shine.
    Here is the link to all the Bald Eagle State Park


    Pavilion # 1 Is where the EDCF crowd will be hanging out
    I am Billy.

    Billy, depending on the location, I'm in. I am still getting used to life in a wheelchair so long trips are out for the time being.
    There are defiantly enough Pennsylvanians here on the board!!
    Maybe we could contact some manufacturers and see if they would donate some trinkits for their supporters. You never know until you ask.....lol.

    Depending on time frame and location, I'd be interested. Butler County is about a 4 hour run for me though. Subscribed as well, to see how it pans out.

    I hope that there might be enough interest to lock onto a date.
    Thank you for your interest.
    Any thoughts on a location?
    All and any input is welcome.

    I'm in the Niagara Falls area and wouldn't mind driving a few hours. I work weekends and am only off on Mondays and Tuesdays though so I probably won't be able to make it. :(

    I missed the "western PA" part. I'm actually east central PA. About 35 miles north of Reading. Schuylkill County. Home of Yeungling Brewery .

    I am in Clinton county, just off of Interstate 80. There are several state parks in the area, and a Gander Mountain not too far away.
    What are you thinking as far as what we would do? Cookout? Sow and tell? Barter blanket?

    That looks like a sweet spot.
    What is the name of the location?
    Should we try for this fall our next summer?
    If other folks from western side of the state might like to go do this we could travel together.
    Thanks Dan.

    It is the Foster Joseph Sayers Dam, Beech Creek, PA 16822 within the Bald Eagle State Park. One cool thing there is a nesting pair of Bald Eagles! Great chance to see a Bald Eagle, if you haven't seen one in person. Bring binoculars and/or a good telephoto lens for your camera. It is a very central location as it falls almost dead center of the state...lol.
    I would like to try to get something together for this fall, late September, October. We can reserve a pavilion when we settle on a date. Is September 29th too late or too soon?
    Any ideas on how we can get a good group together?

    I'm working back to back 16's that weekend it is supposed to my weekend off but the scheduler forgot.
    I think we might be better to shoot for early spring so that we can get as many people together as possible.
    Also that would give us time to plan and request off.

    If we are waiting for spring, we need to make it awesome! I'm thinking commemorative edc goodies, good food/drink, etc. There are a ton of Pennsylvania members; lets make this happen!!
