Just tell them it's a "jam". After all, we'll have guitars there.

All of my non-fishing friends already fall on the floor laughing when I tell them that I am burning a week's vacation to go to central PA to fish.

It is a funny name, but I think it works well.

We could always have a cakewalk this year, instead.

Well if it embarasses you in front of your friends, then just tell them a bunch of people are gathering in central PA to fish, drink, and carry on. If that doesn't work, get new friends.

Jay, my non-fishing friends do the same. But I laugh at them when they burn a week's vacation for the likes of wine tasting, golfing, etc. A vacation should be used for what we enjoy doing most, which is different for all of us. The ones I feel bad about are when I burn a day for a wedding or to get work done around the house. You know, when you'd rather be at work....

"A noisy or unrestrained carouse" is easily my favorite phrase of the day.

I don't think Rudy favors, noisy, unrestrained or carousing.

We need to figure out what Rudy's weakness is...I mean I bet I already know but I'm not sure its legal for us to chip in for that just to keep him busy for a night...he's got to have a price...

There is always this family friendly idea...

Quote:
Jerry and George treat Jerry's girlfriend to a dinner of turkey and wine, followed by a slow movie; they hope that the wine and the tryptophan in the turkey will cause her to fall asleep, and she soon dozes off. Once she is asleep, Jerry and George happily play with the toys. Later, Elaine joins in to play with an Easy-Bake Oven.


Glock,

Rudy is the Hemlock Acres CG owner, and the only person that has tried to order me to go to bed since my mom last tried it when I was 14.

In fairness to Rudy, he can be reasoned with and bargained with as well. He has a year-round business and relationships with repeat/regular customers to worry over. Though the weekend is always good for him, he does have some concerns over having us "take over" the campground. My conversations with him so far this year lead me to believe he is glad we are coming back and that he will be accomodating toward us if we try to be accomodating toward him.

Everyone should attend and expect a grand old time. But we all have to do our part to help Rudy with his concerns for his other customers.

Driving slowly through the campground, parking or stopping so as to allow other users of the roads and lots to go about their business, keeping extreme language to a volume that no one beyond your party has to listen to it, all of these things will go a long way to essentially being "left alone."

Anything destructive is the responsibility of the individual camper, but any such childish act will harm our reputation as a group that gathers there. One night of noisiness last year resulted in strangers that were campground guests to look up this website and post derogatory comments about the entire group. The reality was that only a small group of miscreants were responsible for the noise and the complaining party apparently lacked the fortitude or initiative to make his problem with the noise known when it might have been voluntarily abated.

So are you a teenager...because that was the last time I let anything resembling peer pressure affect how I live my life. If you don't like the name and your buddies laughing makes you uncomfortable, stay home. Be a man call your own shots. I like calling it a "jam". Besides, I missed Shakey's performance last year.

You could just tell your friends you are going to spend the weekend shacking up with a bunch of older men in hip boots. That should go over well.

Glock Guy, these guys are definately not Cub Scouts. I don't have a problem with the Jamboree name.

What I have a problem with is that except for 2 they've all been on or near Penns Creek. I have no interest in fishing over browns in that setting.
