    What do you think is the weight limit on the slide? I only ask because I'm an adrenaline junkie. :sleep: (extreme napping)

    Later edit. WOW! That is decidedly less funny when the "sleeping smilie" doesn't pop up. Just use your imagination.

    Wow, I'm thrilled to see this thread being so alive after our great Forums took a little nap. I agree with what's been said and think we should begin the process of narrowing down a date. In my experience it's almost never too early to think about planning something like this and making the appropriate arrangements/reservations. For me either brainstorming here in this thread or in a convo between the people that feel like joining in the planning would be great.

    Okay, I just did some reading about the where and are convinced this place is fairly awesome unless you don't like the great outdoors. Great choice...and I think we could make great use of a pavillion or two like it's already been suggested. That's what we need to sort out so that they can be researched for price and availabillity. (How many people are coming ?? How big are these pavillions and how many people will fit in one ???)

    First things first...let's get our calendars out and let's try and narrow down a date. I obviously don't think it needs to be tonight but let's see some suggestions and perhaps we can form some kind of committee to ensure the success and that the planning proceeds. I say...let anybody that wants to help make this happen join and perhaps we can take it from there.

    Okay, I think a weekend would be best and why not have people that are genuinely interested in attending make some kind of nomination of a date that would work for them in May/June 2013 or when they would like to do this ???

    EDIT : If you're interested in attending, please post to this thread..

    This will be enough notice that I can assure any date on that time frame.
    Except May 19 weekend, and June 13 to 20.
    That is the only times I wouldn't be able to come forbidding any major problems i.e. Family emergency kind of thing.

    This is a list of the pavilions there http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/findapark/baldeagle/

    @ 95 do you know much about this park, is there a pavilion that would be better than another??

    I think once we get a date picked I'm going to look at trying to get a yurt they have 2 for rentals.....
    Any...All of that info is in the above link.

    If the Pavilions are the same size as the 2 local state parks I frequent are I'm guessing 35X20 they hold about 10-16 picnic tables I believe..

    I have a pavilion picked out. It is just above the beach along the wood line. Very nice location, and wheelchair accessible.
    Not to shift discussion, but several years ago, 8 maybe, one of if not the largest bucks every killed was taken inside the state park. It was a giant non typical, but believe it was not allowed to be entered in any books because of the location of kill. I will find a picture and post it.

    I went to High School in Elizabethtown. Put me on the maybe list. It's an 11-hour drive from Chicago. That's doable. And then I could head south and visit my old stomping grounds. Maybe hit Hersheypark also. ;)
