There is in the neighborhood of room for 40 to sleep and lots more room for sleeping bags and air mattresses. There are dishes, stoves 3 or 4 bathrooms so this should be no problem. The leader, Dorothy Leland says we should bring a pot or two (to cook in) a skillet, electric or otherwise. She is planning on a get together breakfast and the cost will be prorated. A potluck dinner Saturday night is on the agenda. so bring your potluck dish. Either hot or cold. Electric freezer and ranges are available. It is imperative that if you intend to go that you phone Dorothy so she will know about how many to prepare the breakfast for. Please make it as easy for Dorothy as you can. Cost of rental of the building is $2 per person and the usual Obsidian trip fee will be charged.

If you can come up with any games or entertainment for the evening do so.
