Happy weeked NOGgers. We're a bit less than two weeks to camping together! Fun times ahead.

I thought I'd go ahead and post the schedule and give you some of my thoughts on other issues.

We're quickly approaching the fall time in Oregon. We don't know what the weather will bring. This is the largest number of participants to a NOG we've ever had. Fort Stevens has two reservable shelters. I'm not going to reserve a shelter. But, I will talk to the rangers when I arrive on Wed., Sept. 30 if it looks like the weather will be less than stellar and a shelter can be reserved. I can't afford to pay for it... wish I could. But if we need the shelter and it can be reserved, would each NOG site be willing to pitch in $5 to cover the cost? Any excess funds would be used to pay for the next NOG shelter or product to give away. Or wood for a raging NOG fire! Give it some thought. I just don't want our Friday night gathering or the Saturday potluck to drown out. (Picnic Shelter - $50 first 50 people; $1 for each additional up to 300). We may need it both Friday and Saturday...

If the evening hours look dry and if it's not terribly inconvenient and you have space to haul a folding table... could you please bring it! Oh my stars, with this group my picnic table and 8x4 folding table won't be enough.

Don't forget your name tags. We have lots of new people. Let's make it easy on them. Remember when you were the newbie? Trying to remember peoples names is uncomfortable!

There won't be a give away at this NOG, I'm ill-prepared. But you still need that name tag!


THE Schedule of events such as it is... This is the Fall NOG. While it's referred to as the Northern Oregon Gathering, I kinda prefer Not Organized Gathering.

Daytime hours are completely unscheduled. Feel free to do what you wish, sleep in, hike, go to town, play cards, sit-and-visit, etc., etc. As far as trailer tours, nothing scheduled for that either. If you see folks sitting outside, stop and chat and ask to see their trailer. I've found most folks have an informal open house.

DON'T FORGET TO BRING/WEAR A NAME TAG.

WEATHER PERMITTING - No-host dinner-on-a-stick roasting fire going at my site (N26) on Friday night.
This is not a potluck, bring everything you need. Fire will be roaring in the NOG tub, come by anytime after 6:00pm. And the biggy:

CRAFT BEER EXCHANGE
7PM SHARP
FRIDAY NIGHT
This is an "opener" event.
Bring a six pack of craft beer, trade one bottle or can for a different kind.

Everyone is welcome at anytime to anything. If you're not a beer drinker that's perfectly okay. Please bring your lawn chair and join us anyway. Beer/food is secondary to the good times we'll have around the NOG tub.

WEATHER PERMITTING - Saturday potluck at my site (N26) 6pm.
Bring a food item to share that feeds 6-10 people, your table service and lawn chair. I'll supply the garbage bags for trash. if you have a stick or two of firewood to share at the NOG tub, that would be grand.

Please, no pets at the food events.

Hope this helps with some questions. Post if not, we'll get the question answered.

oooh new trailer AND retired. Sounds perfect!! We don't know where the NOG will land for next fall. We'll decide that as a group on Saturday night of Fall NOG. But, we do know we'll be at Waterloo for Spring NOG: 2016, April 21-24: Spring NOG - Northern Oregon Gathering

Somehow, I completely missed all notifications for the Fall NOG. That said, it's never too late to think about Spring ...

I'm so confused. Jan, this is for Spring NOG right? Otherwise you'll be in the wrong loop on the wrong weekend for Fall NOG!

You think you're confused ... I'm way ahead of you in that department.

Yep, sorry, it's the Spring NOG. I missed the Fall NOG so decided to make sure we didn't miss out on Spring (BTW, I noticed that a lot of the campsites are full for Waterloo in the Spring ... ).
