Time to make your reservations for 2016

  • If you didn’t read all the way to the bottom of the November Ticker, the last item was a message about reserving spots for our first Weekender of next year at Brown County


“It’s already time to register for our first Weekender for next year!!  Yay!  That means only 6 months til our next CIU glamping experience!!  Yes, it is time to register for our April 29 – May 1 Brown County State Park Weekender.  Reserve through Reserve America and let’s keep the same sites we’ve occupied the past two years;  let’s reserve sites 36-42 in the Buffalo Ridge Electric Campground, followed by sites 28-35.  Don and I are registered for site 37 and are arriving Thursday.”  So far we have…

Masons on site 36
Newman on 39
Langells on 38
Freys on 41
Gordys on 43
Russels on 37

A good start for a good time!!  Please join us!
  • And now it’s time to book our sites at Patoka Lake State Park for our second Weekender!!  Going a little farther south for warmer weather for this one.  The official dates are May 13 – 15, so tomorrow is the first day you can reserve through Reserve America.  Let’s reserve sites 297, 299, 304. 308. 312, and 314 first – that’s the inner circle of a loop, followed by sites 305-313.  This is opening weekend for this park, so they may book up quickly.  This loop is close to the lake with paths back to it.  Looks like a great place to meet!  There are many things to do in the park and close by:
  • French Lick is 20 minutes away – tour the West Baden Springs Hotel, http://www.frenchlick.com/hotels/westbaden, casino, winery, golf course, and more
  • St. Meinrad Archabbey is 35 minutes away – tour info, http://www.saintmeinrad.org/visit-us/

  • Patoka Lake offers boat rentals, horseback riding, fishing, hiking, and more
  • Please email me with your site numbers so we can keep track of our CIU peeps and their spots.
  • The Ticker Publisher position is still available.  Otherwise, members will just get updates and notifications via emails such as this.

Rally at Mississinewa October 8-11, 2016

Last minute opportunity!   Ann Newman is unable to attend this rally, and her site is available.  If you would like to go but don’t have a reservation yet, please contact Ann at anewman2@indy.rr.com to arrange to take over site 228.

We have planned a campsite decorating contest and a chili cook-off.  This morning we received an email from the park – they have planned the same events, as well as a pumpkin carving contest, campfire cooking contest, and trick-or-treating!  T-shirts and sweatshirts are available as well, but they must be ordered by SEPTEMBER 22, so order quickly!   I have attached the pdf from the park with all of the details – Please Look it over.

Also note that we have been notified by the park that there has been widespread damage to their facilities caused by flooding this summer.   They are working at reopening all buildings;  the things that will be of concern to us are:  the camp store will be open but limited, and there are areas where vegetation has been killed – if it rains there will be mud.  Be prepared.

Reserve online through ReserveAmerica.com, at Mississinewa Lake. Please notify Ken kslangell@me.com if you reserve a site or have any questions.

Here is the list of sites we have reserved.

231 Russel
234 Dillow
237 Langell
228 Newman
233 Barksdale
226 Sherley
202 Moorman
227 Kachele
240 Fuller
ACW-2??? Lowe

There will be a $5 kitty fee for this rally.  Come prepared to win prizes – we will have a Chili Cookoff, and also a prize for the Best Decorated Trailer. Break out the jack-o-lanterns and mums!
