    South Carolina>Goat Island, Lake Greenwood, Greenwood, SC>May 16-19, 2013

    The time is here!!! Time to start planning the Fourth Annual Goat Island Hang. This year promises to be bigger and better than last year (and last year was AWESOME!).

    Reservations for Goat Island this year are for the weekend of May 16th thru May 19th. This is the weekend prior to Memorial Day Weekend. We have found in the past that some like to have the option to come out a day early so we now make the reservations for Thursday thru Sunday. However, no pressure for Thursday. In fact, showing up on Saturday is fine too.

    In order to get to the island, you will need a boat or chip in for gas if someone is able to provide a shuttle that weekend. Just make sure not to call whomever offers this service the Goat Island Fairy Typically we have a group dinner on Saturday evening with the last two years being “Low Country Beaufort Frogmore Boil Stew”.

    Dessert was also a big hit the last two years where we were treated to some fine talented Dutch Oven cooks. Peach cobbler, blackberry cobbler, and an upside down peach cake... all topped “a la mode”.

    Talk about being in heaven...

    This will be a kid-friendly event so please feel free to bring your family along (that being said... please temper your activities and conversations appropriately). In the past there has not been an agenda other than hang out, have fun, and when do we eat? The kids and adults spent a lot of time in the water. Swimming, boating , fishing, skiing, tubing, and cornhole were a big hit in previous years(skiing, tubing, and shuttling thanks to Swampfox!). This year we hope to provide even more opportunities for fun . The possibilities for fun are not limited by the size of the island - there is even a geocache on the island.

    In order to comply with the reservations we have already made with the GLMD, please make sure to sign up on the roster located here: [ https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...ZNEhYcVE#gid=0 ] There is no fee for camping, just sign up and claim yourself a spot and try to adhere to the GLMD rules as outlined in the fine print at the very bottom of this post

    Goat Island has no facilities therefor all water for consumption will be brought to the island. We will have access to additional water if needed but there is a small convenience store at Moon’s Landing where basic supplies can be purchased. With that said, also note that there are no restrooms so please be prepared to dispose of all waste properly (ie. catholes, baggies, personal porta-potties, etc.).

    Here is the address for the secure parking place at:

    Moon Landing RV Park & Marina‎

    4105 Watts Bridge Road
    Cross Hill, SC 29332-5049
    (864) 998-4292
    www.moonlandingrvpark.com‎

    Per GMLD because it’s my name on the permit-
    No cutting of trees shall be permitted on the Island, or destruction of trees and other plant life.

    Absolutely no littering. All trash and litter brought to the Island must be removed by the expiration of this permit.

    Campfires must be built in such a way as to prevent spread of the fire and must be completely extinguished prior to the expiration of this permit. Fires can only be used to burn dead wood gathered on the Island or brought to the Island. Burning trash is prohibited.
    There will be no camping in the backside of the Island facing the Greenwood County shoreline. All campsites must face the lake body.
    The use of alcohol (in moderation. please use your discretion) or illegal drugs is absolutely prohibited. (However, . . . we "assume" this rule is to reduce any liability of the GLMD from any "irresponsible" behaviors associated from such consumption therefore we leave the responsibility to each person to conduct themselves accordingly. Don't advertise it, abuse it, and so on.)
    Any violation of the above provisions of this permit will result in the immediate revocation of same, the forfeiture of the privilege to receive future permits, and/or prosecution for criminal and civil liabilities that might arise from these violations.
    Checkout time is 2 pm.
    The 2013 Lake Greenwood, Goat Island Hang in Greenwood, SC. May 16-19, 2013


    Last year we raised enough money thru our auction to install a permanent fire pit at site number 5.

    The auction was a lot of fun and we may do it again next year. This year I am asking that you make a $10 donation to Goat Island, so that we can put another fire pit on another site (maybe even two sites, or three)

    About DAGGUM time!

    Swampfox already has me worked up for a couple other hangs and I always look forward to this one. Something about being on an island, hanging out with good friends, good eats, with a southern latitude attitude.

    I'm in.... plus my crew of 3 ;-)

    This is an AWESOME hang.
    I missed last year and plan to make sure that doesn't happen again.

    Every year I wish I could attend this one. Timberrr is in the final year of a 4 year deaconal study and his final class is that very weekend. So once again, this year is out.

    Have a great hang. I hope to make this one eventually.

    It is all I can do to keep from scheduling this event earlier and earlier so I don't have to wait. Hope to see you there this year.

    Might not be as big of an event as Trail Days...

    but Ours is better. Hope you can make it, but we understand - prior commitments and all.

    Just remember... You are officially invited to Goat Island 2014. There we asked first this time.

    Hope you can make this one and stay a little longer. Although stopping by for dinner is allowed. At least you stayed long enough to dry off after your swim over.

    I'll bring some milk we can warm up before we put him down for the night.

    I've signed up to bring two Dutch Ovens.
    I'm thinking Chocolate Turtle Cake.
    That's Caramel Ice Cream topping melted all over the top of that Pecan filled Fudge cake.


    and a cobbler, maybe Blueberry.
