Last year, at
the BIG 30-year reunion,
we unveiled the Commemorative plaques at Carlisle and
Camelot on Blue Creek. Those plaques are still there – a part of our legacy
on the Creek! This year we hope to report on the Cliffside plaque. Come on
out and remember those magical summers!
Friday, July 19 – at the FOP in Charleston,
Friday night will be very casual:
free beer, sodas, pizza, wings and veggies, and maybe a DJ for some
entertainment! BYO if you prefer stronger
beverages. Some attendees may leave early to camp on Blue Creek on Friday
night. We’re sure we can count on everyone to Drink Responsibly!

We have not planned any events this year at the
Hunting and Fishing Lodge, but camping and visiting on the Creek are
much encouraged! Hike, fish, wade, explore … remember!
Please note: The route to the Hunting
/ Fishing Club and the camp sites requires travel on dirt roads with multiple
stream crossings. The camp sites are more than 1/2 hour from the nearest
help. Weekend events are held in undeveloped areas where cell-phone and
emergency services are not immediately available. Guests should plan to bring
appropriate vehicles, food and water, optional overnight camping and hiking
gear, and any medications or other immediate needs. Overnight camping is at
your own risk. Everyone should always be alert to avoid accidents and to help
