The 2003 GPNDG will be held at the Simax Group Camp at Crescent Lake, Oregon in the Deschutes National Forest. The campground is located on the NE shore of Crescent Lake just south of Highway 58, and roughly 50 miles north of Crater Lake, OR.
The Gather will start on Thursday night, which is designated "Nostalgia Night". In the old tradition of the earliest Gathers, the evening's repast was cook-your-own-Brats.
- Community shelter with electrical outlets, lighting, counter tops
- Flush Toilets Note: We have rented several Port-a-Potties to supplement the plumbing!
- Three group sites with room for 110 people
- Paved except for the last 1 mile (gravel)
- Cabins, boats, and skis are available for rental at:
Crescent Lake Lodge & Resort +1 (541) 433-2505.
- water skiing
- wind surfing
Please, DO NOT "just show up" at the Gather.
If you haven't registered in advance, with your payment received by the Finance Minister no later than July 31, you're not being included in the planning. We hate to turn people away, but we may. You MAY get tent space, if there's any left. You MAY get food, but you'll be last in line. Access to the beer is a MUCH touchier subject. You WILL still pay the same full fee immediately upon arrival, or be shown the road out.
Thanks very much for your ADVANCE REGISTRATION!
Thu, Fri, Sat nights tent camping and meals as follows:
Lunches are not provided, though snacks and beverages will be available all the time.

Or, for an e-mail-only experience: send a simple 1-line message to firstname.lastname@example.org with any subject (the Subject: line is ignored) and a message body of:subscribe GPNDG Albert Einsteinwhere you replace "Albert Einstein" with your real name (no nicknames please). You will receive an automated reply welcoming you to the list, and information about how to unsubscribe, set various configurable options, etc. Don't forget to save the message for later reference...
