Annual Badlands Bash

There wasn't a Bash last year, apparently because I was out of town and nobody else wanted to pick a date. This year I don't plan to be gone, so I will eventually set a date. Traditionally we hold it between Mother's Day and Memorial Day, which would be the the weekend of May 14th or May 21st. I would lean toward the later date, but it doesn't really matter, so if anyone has a preference, post it up.

Who is interested in coming? Has anybody been by Steam Corner lately?

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

No preference; I'm in. The new place is done, I am moved in, and I am chomping at the bit to wheel. By then I may even have all the boxes of stuff unpacked. Dan

When ever is likely fine... But the weather might be better the first weekend in June.

Nope have not been anywhere near Steam Corner.

I've been told after Memorial Day the park gets a lot more crowded, although I've never been there between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

OK, I don't always remember everything exactly... Didn't we do the first weekend of June a couple of years ago?

Not that I recall, but I'm getting old and feeble-minded. But if you think that would be better, it's fine with me. And Toby will do what I tell him or get the whip.

Might not be a good weekend for it.

The Jeep Jamboree folks will be all organized and we will be all random as usual. Can't imagine that there will be enough of them to impact us very much. I have been there for Toys for Tots events that you couldn't move around the park, not great wheeling but a whole lot of BS'n while sitting around. All good so whatever folks want to do.

I just didn't know if the park would be open or if JJ would have it exclusively for that day.
