Dear PAFF Message Board Community
The location for the 2011 Annual PAFF Fly Fishing Jamboree has been selected. The gathering will be held at Seven Mountains Camground, located about 16 miles east of State College, PA. The campground is right off of 322 on the eastbound side just as it expands to 4 lanes about 1.5 miles east of its junction with Rte 144 south of Centre Hall, PA.
Tradition has established Central PA as the ideal location for the Annual Jamboree. With the growth of the board, finding a suitable campground is becoming a bit more difficult. This year we found two very good options, Seven Mountains and Quiet Oaks CG in the Renovo, PA vicinity. The choice was not easy. We would like to see a "mini-Jam" organized for the north-central area of the state and encourage anyone disappointed that we won't be moving up there this year to organize a secondary Jamboree, hopefully for a different weekend.
Seven Mountains is easily accessible. It opens up fishing locations farther south and also leaves easy and convenient access to Spring/Penns/Fishing Creek, the "big three" of prior Central PA Jams. The campground is uniformly flat and intends to have a significant amount of under-roof accomodations on site by Spring. Alternative accomodations are plentiful nearby, such as State College motels within 20 minutes, or other local campgrounds. We hope to see anyone who plans to have more than a couple beers in the evening stay with us at Seven Mountains. They have plenty of room for tent campers, but we recommend reserving tent space early as well to be sure everyone can be accomodated. Arrangements for campsites and cabins are between YOU and the CG and no one associated with PAFF takes any responsibility for your reservation.
Presently available are 6 "primitive cabins" for Friday and Saturday nights. I did not inquire about longer reservations before and after, but feel free to discuss this with the CG owners/agents. Reservations of cabins and tenting space is between you and the CG. They have agreed not to rent the 6 available primitive cabins to anyone not identifying themselves as being with the PA Flyfish Jamboree through close of business on January 5, 2011. All reservations are first-come, first served and a deposit will be expected from the CG to "hold" the reservation beyond January 5. One of the primitive cabins exists and the other 5 are supposed to be built before we arrive. Please discuss this contingency with the CG if you reserve one of the not-yet-built cabins.
We have secured the CG pavilion for use of the group from 3:00 PM Friday, May 20 through 12:00 noon Sunday, May 22. As is our habit, the pavilion will be the location where attendees can gather to meet up with others in the AM for coffee and after dark for a campfire and social gathering. Attendees can also use the pavilion for temporary shelter, tying flies, repairing equipment, meeting fishing groups and eating a meal or two. The pavilion is significantly smaller than the one last year, but it will serve our purposes similarly, if more compactly. There is a charge for use of the pavilion and we'll need to make arrangements like last year to raise a little money among us to pay for it.
