Folks it's about time we opened this thread for discussion.

My thoughts...
In ORVG Spring RU Tradition we hold it at a neutral site... park, etc...

On the River that gives us our heritage ... OH, KY or IN

How about the last weekend in May... that's the weekend AFTER Memorial Day

Just MY thoughts...

I've been thinking we need to start discussing too. I like the idea of that weekend- been thinking a little earlier than usual would be better for digging and planting stuff.

No computer... my laptop died weeks ago. Then I used my very slow, ailing ancient desktop for just 4-5 days until it died too. I hope to have my laptop repaired and back home by the end of this week, but they are STILL waiting for a part. Meanwhile, I can drive to town to the library although that's neither convenient nor economical in gas $.

Neal, either way is fine with the quince. The cherry cuttings Robin brought me last fall died before rooting, but we halfway expected that since I don't have a good place inside for cuttings over winter. Even the Nanking cherry Melissa gave me last year died after I got home and planted it, but probably because the taproot was broken. I have several fruit trees/bushes I want to order but it depends on the final total for my computer repairs.

I have NO idea what I may be able to bring to the RU to swap. Mostly I will be starting veggies this year. However, if it ever warms up enough for me to rescue my bramble trellis from under all the tree debris, I may have a few raspberries to share.

The pepper cookies weren't mine. I just brought biscotti.

How much farther north? No, I'm not picky, LOL... I also want to plan in some time to spend researching old records in Adams County (and maybe others) while I'm there. The last relative I knew living there died about 18 months ago. (and I haven't even looked at a map to see where that in in relation to the RU spot anyway.)

We would have fun Darius! I can kick the oldest out of his room for the night and you would be good to go. I have another bedroom, but It's stuffed with craft/plants/crap/etc. This may motivate me to get that room straightened finally also. You would have to come early friday, so I could show you the woods and critters. I will even break out my last gal. of raspberries for dumplings if you stay.(and that has been the high holy all winter), but you would be a special guest.

I would love to put in for vacation day the Friday before- i could drive down to visit friends in Paris,KY, stay overnight there. Then, I could come by round up on my way home on Saturday.

In fact, if you do this the Saturday after Memorial Day, I could take the whole week off... That is usually when I take a week- before or after Memorial Day...

I spoke to my boss about it, and I would need to have my paperwork in for the request soon--- as a couple others have expressed interest in taking time off then too- and they only allow one in my area off at a time over a holiday.

Any clue when we will know for sure??

So... it's changing, or been changed to June 6th due to lack of the shelter we wanted?

Why don't we all agree on a repeating date (for every year) and reserve a shelter earlier? It would make planning easier for all of us. We have done that with the Southern Appalachian RU, it's always the first Saturday in May, and always at Lake Julian in Asheville. Sure makes planning easier for everyone.

Yes, it is changed to the 6th of June. It was the only time we could get the site. It will be at Steamboat Springs again this year same as last year. Hope it works for everyone.

I agree. Since Memorial Day often falls on the last Saturday of May, lets plan on the first Saturday in June and we can reserve ahead of time.

And just to set the record straight.
I took it on myself to set this up so if there are any issues please address them to me.
We were running out of time and it needed to be done.

I tried a bunch of places but everything was booked for the 30th.
So we will do it June 6th at Steamboat Bend Picnic Shelter.
Thanks to Joyce for doing the calling.
Their hours are also my hours and I couldn't get thru.
I have the paperwork on my desk and will reserve the site if that is agreeable.

The total rental amount is $105.00 for the day.
Which we will divide up at the RU.
You are supposed to have a Park Permit.
Last year nobody checked on us so it wasn't an issue... but it's $2.00 a car if we get caught.

Times are tough for many here.
Don't let this fee be a reason not to attend.
We can work something out for sure.

Darius makes a good point.
We should vote at the RU to set up a permanant date.
It makes things much easier.

That works for me, probably better than May actually. I have a wedding to do flowers for in Nashville on Memorial Day weekend (which falls earlier in the month this year, Memorial Day is the 25th), and I have a graduation party to attend on the 9th. May always ends up being a very busy month, it would be a good idea to set up a permanent date, and this one has worked out well the last few years.

Don't know how I missed this thread, but I am a follower, not a leader, so it has all worked out, and it is scheduled, and suits me fine. Now to just try to find plants that I can bring, and food that won't go bad on the trip, and hope the weather is good, and that I don't have a car trunk of plants to deliver. Not that I minded, but the only thing I worry about is having room for everything that I usually bring home.

I will probably have some tomato plants. Will have more pickled beets, maybe some roasted tomato sauce, and other canned goods. I will have to start thinking about it seriously.

Dusty, don't think it will fit through a straw, but he can sure save it till he can eat some. I think it so good, I have been known to eat it with a spoon, nothing else, just the sauce. This is a chunky sauce with onions, peppers some with mushrooms.

Dusty, it does freeze well, but since I usually put so many veggies in the freezer, would just as soon can the sauce and save my freezer room.

Recipe? I can tell you an approximate recipe, but it is the kind of thing where besides the basics, you can use anything you want.

Hey, Sue has berry syrup too! George can enjoy that, and it would be good over cheesecake too. Hmmm...cheesecake would still be good mushed into a slurry.

Oh George, I just realized you're going to be on a slurry diet, LOL.

Y'all, George has nurtured many an ailing critter back to health with his nutritional "slurries".

Been MIA this afternoon, but you all sure have had a good time. Since I am usually the DD, don't have anything alcoholic to drink at the RU's. Don't want to be arrested for the first time in my life after a good social day.

Now, Ric, don't scare off all of our new posters. We have never been know to harm anybody but each other when we were growing up!! We used to team up and whip our older sister about once a week! If we didn't have a reason to do so, we just did it for good measure.

Does anyone know if the park you have this at is dog friendly?

I may be adopting a young dog the week or so before the event. I am adopting her to train her to become an assistance dog for me. She has been a shelter dog her whole life, and while she is still young, I will need to get her out and have her in as many situations as possible, and meet as many people as I can.

I think the Roundup would be a good opportunity to socialize her. She's in a Cell Dog training program now - learning basic obedience, so I don't think she will be out of control.

I will be getting a "Service Dog" vest for her, but won't have that yet when we are at the Roundup, so she won't be guaranteed access.

Of course, we may not like her when we meet her on Monday...

Pets on a lease are OK.

This is from their web site.

---------------------------------------------

Pets are allowed in the parks and campgrounds; however, they must be kept on a leash no longer than six feet in length.
They must be kept under physical control and not be a nuisance to other park visitors.
Pet owners are required to remove their pet's fecal deposits from the park grounds.
Mutt Mitt dispensers are located at each trailhead and are available from the Rangers.

----------------------------------------
Congrats on the new addition!
You should name her Frogbelly... lol!

will absolutely be on leash! and my training leash is less than 3 feet, so that will work!

Thanks Ric

I will tell Mom about Frogbelly!!

Her name now is Zoey -- we are debating on if we should change that.

Have to see if I think she will work for us first! I can be pretty picky about my dogs. I've been looking at websites for a year for a candidate. Wanted a cross of Aussie or Border Collie but with a short coat. The officer in charge of the training thinks she will work out great. I originally called about a different dog, and he suggested this one.
