We were given a choice in regards to our reserved group site at the Grand Canyon. #1-Keep the site but commit to limiting occupancy to 6 people or #2-cancel the site. We chose to keep the site and have closed registration.
Join our DA Family for a fabulous time at the Grand Canyon
This is weekend after Labor Day
WHERE: We’ve got Mather Group Site 2
The weather’s been perfect the past few years, so we’re due for rain, so bring your EZ ups and hopefully we’ll stave off the rain. We’ll follow the same schedule, Thursday night we’ll do a mixer, so everybody gets to meet everybody, Friday everybody’s on their own to hike, shop, nap, or some combination thereof.
Saturday evening we’ll have TBD and something vegetarian. Happy hour at around 5ish. We’ll provide some kind of happy hour adult beverage, and ask that everybody bring some kind of side or desert to share.
If you’re new to this, or can’t remember anything anymore, here are the basics. The site we’ve reserved is for tenters. If you have an RV, you need to reserve your own spot; check out www.recreation.gov or call 877-444-6777. The closest hotel rooms are located at the Yavapai Lodge, which also has a mediocre restaurant and free Wi-Fi.
There is a pretty decent general store that has an amazing selection of food and liquor and a decent snack bar. Elk and deer have frequently wandered through the neighborhood. Decent toilets, mud sinks to do the dishes are nearby and showers are available nearby—bring quarters and flip-flops or river shoes.
This is not roughing it. There are people who bring no food and just a cooler for adult beverages who manage not to starve.
We ask everybody to RSVP as usual. Please bring firewood.
