Event Ideas and Suggestions..

This thread is to simply attempt to compile and orchestrate future events/G2G's for the GPDA.

Currently we have a good majority of members spread out across the state of which should provide a good bit of input for possibilities. With that being said, we should be able to organize G2G's that will allow for any prospective members to meet one of the two required attendances.

This has been recommended thus far;

Fort Yargo State Park
Fort Yargo State Park | Georgia State Parks
Address/Directions
Fort Yargo State Park
210 S. Broad Street
Winder , GA 30680


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GPS Coordinates:
N 33.969621 | W -83.729612
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Located 1 mile south of Winder on Ga. Hwy. 81.


Ideas at the moment range from a one day cookout scenario to a weekend camping trip. Below are a few of the options available for us at this location.

ACCOMMODATIONS & FACILITIES:
• 1,816 Acres
• 3 Cottages ($120) -- #3 is dog friendly ($45 per dog, max 2)
• 6 Yurts ($70)
• 52 Tent, Trailer, RV Campsites ($25-$30)
• 12 Walk-in Campsites ($24)
• 260-Acre Lake with Beach (seasonal)
• 5 Picnic Shelters ($50)
• 2 Group Shelters (seat 80 and 100, $105–$160)
• Nature Center Pavilion ($85)
• Beach Pavilion ($100)
• Pioneer Campground ($75)
• 2 Boat Ramps
• Gift Shop


THINGS TO DO & SEE:
• First Time Camper Program
• GeoCaching
• Hiking and Mountain Biking - 18 miles of trails, Muddy Spokes Club, bike rental
• Disc Golf (fee) -- annual passes available, bring your own discs
• Lake Swimming
• Fishing – jon boat rental (seasonal)
• Boating – private boats allowed, 10 HP limit
• Canoe, Kayak and Pedal Boat Rental (seasonal)
• Picnicking
• Miniature Golf (fee)
• 2 Tennis Courts
• Playgrounds
• Basketball


I think we can all agree that it may still be a little hot/humid for a full weekend (unless we have enough campers with A/C), but by the looks of things the weather is starting to cool down some.

The floor is open, lets make it happen...

What I was suggesting was even though people may want to camp all weekend doesn't mean everyone has to do so. But showing up and hanging out means just as much as camping with the group. Making the effort more or less.

And when putting it together and wanting to "G2G" official or unofficial people need to know about it with some kind of advance. And just because a few members can't make it doesn't mean it doesn't have to take place. My 2cents.
