October would be the only normal exception to our "3rd Friday" rule.
We try to take advantage of the kid's day off for Columbus Day so we
can stretch our camping weekend to correspond with the longer weekend.
.
There are spontaneous events involving the club that take place from time-to-time as well.
There was an impromptu Christmas get-together after Jan 1 last year.
We got together on a Saturday in October to split about 8 cords of donated wood for our campfires .
.
We held a fund raiser for the club last year - a Garage Sale
All the families in the club were involved in it's success ($500 went to the Club Treasury)
