Event idea information
- OK, I admit it. I've been gathering event planning info before actually talking to anybody. I wanted to have some real information at hand when proposing something.
Since we have so much trouble getting together for meetings I figure I'll keep everyone updated so all we have to meet for is actual decision making with everything already out there.
I found what I think is an awesome event site. Camp Walter Scott south of Effingham. (www.campwalterscott.org) 15290 E. 300th Ave. Dieterich, IL 62424.
The Dining hall is $150. It has cabins which cost $15/person/night. There are rough shelters that are $15/night for the building and can sleep 16. The cabins are awesome if a pit pricey. The cabins have minimum charges but she said it was possible to get them waived but wouldn't promise to do so at this point. There is also tent camping and RV spots for $15/night regardless of occupancy.
It is available a range of dates next spring but looking at the event calendar I think March 26-28 or May 7-9 look the most promising. I posted an album of pics I took int he Photo section.
I've been bouncing ideas off their Excellencies of Illiton trying to get them involved and hopefully pull in some attendance there.
I think I have emptied my brain for now.
