    FOOD DONATION SIGN UP – PINK underlined tab at the bottom of the page https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...lMQ/edit#gid=0

    EVENT DETAILS
    Food Focus
    Dutch would like to have a Tex-Mex Theme on Saturday night. Bring your best Texi-Mexi meal for dinner. We have 2 different categories to sign up for:
    • Main Dish
    • Dessert
    Everyone is encouraged to bring a food contribution for dinner (Tex-Mex or not). Please see the sign-up sheet for categories to sign up in. There are other items needed at the bottom of the sheet, so please sign up if you are able. You are more than welcome to attend, however, if you are unable to bring a contribution. Dutch’s heart is for all to attend our hang.

    All meal contributions need to be on the serving table at 5:15pm. Meal will begin at 5:30pm. This is a judgement-free zone.
    Instead of reserving a pavilion, we have decided to pop easy-ups and eat at our group camp site.
    • Saturday Breakfast: Breakfast burritos
    • Saturday Dinner: Tex-Mex Theme

    Raffle
    We are having one! $10 per ticket. Raffle details will be revealed as vendors send them to the shop.

    Free Camping
    All 5 of the group sites have been reserved for this event. The cost for these sites is covered by donations.

    Cell Phone Coverage
    The park office mentions that they have pretty good cell service for Verizon but ATT can be sketchy. However, Wi-Fi is available at the park office with password shown in window. You will find best coverage toward Rt 30 corridor.

    Precautions
    Please bring your own hand sanitizer, mask for close quarters, and observe all PA COVID-19 recommendations. https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/dis...Travelers.aspx
    If you are showing even mild COVID symptoms, or if a family member is sick, please do not come to the event. We are asking you to take your temperature before heading to the gathering. The last thing we want is for anyone to get sick.
    We are asking for each group campsite to be cautious. Also, please be respectful of other’s choices to wear a mask or not because of health conditions.

    Pets
    Great news! This park is “pro pet”. However, they only welcome well behaved pets. Also, whether you bring a dog, cat, bird, or ferret, please keep him/her/them on a leash.

    Free Firewood
    Each of these group sites have their own campfire ring. Friends of Caledonia are dropping off a load of firewood on Friday night as we will be donating toward their care of the park. Note: The park allows gathering dead, down wood, but no chainsaws in the park.

    Water
    The group site has water at the group camp bathhouse. Also, cool stuff, they have a sink outside of the restrooms for dishwashing. Another fun fact: with our reservation, we have shower privileges at the Hosack Run Campground. Just a short walk down the Chambersburg Waterline Trail and you have new, beautiful shower facility available for use. Yay!!

    Bathrooms
    The group site has men and women's flush toilets and sinks with running water. See above links for shower house location.

    Parking
    Our group will be the only one using the group parking lot. PLEASE park at the office once you drop off your camping equipment. We struggled to have enough room in Spring, but more parking is available at the park office. The Midland Trail will take you to Group Camping from there. Also, please obey all park rules/signs and don’t park in front of the gate.

    Pre-Hikers/Post-Hikers – Check their website for up to date information. Map for AT Overnight Parking: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K2o...ew?usp=sharing

    Alcohol
    No alcoholic beverages allowed in the state park. Rangers will be patrolling the area.

    Vendor Sales
    As with all MAHHAs, there will be no vendor sales. MAHHA hangs are for fun, new friends, food, chillin’, etc. We, as a group, do not have a sales permit for this park and have no interest in obtaining one.

    Clean-up After Dinner
    After the meal: Please make sure you clean up your eating area and take with you, or dispose of, any food containers and cast-iron items you’ve brought. This will help to leave the group camping area in the same or better condition than when we arrived.

    Leaving Your Campsite
    Sunday when leaving group hang area: Please look around your area before you leave to make sure everything is cleaned up, again, let us leave the group hang area in the same or better condition than when we arrived. If someone forgot something, take it with you and post on HF.

    Organizers
    Thanks to all who help serve, clean, collect, and donate. We have such an excellent group!!

    I want to be light and frolicsome.

    I really look forward to these events. It's always fun hanging with old friends and making new ones, checking out other people's gear, sharing my hanging ideas and learning new new tricks. and being surprised by whatever new twist Dutch adds to the fun!

    I always like going SOBO; somehow, it feels like going downhill.
