NE Ohio Apug Gathering, Fall Color, October 9-11, 2009
We are going to have another NE Ohio Apug Gathering October 9th, 10th and 11th, at the Powers’ house to celebrate and enjoy Fall Color. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources said this afternoon that if the nights are not too clear and cold, if the creeks don’t rise too much, they can sort of, maybe assure us, that perhaps there will be Fall Color in Northern Ohio in the early part of October. That is a firm government maybe.
Available options we have enjoyed before will be the Cuyahoga Valley National Park,
Virgina Kendall Ledges
Nelson-Kennedy Ledges. The last link has many pictures.
What has become boiler plate for each event.
We have had as many as 25 APUG members here at five bi monthly weekend events over the past year. Those 25 and any Apug members new to us are welcome to join for another gathering.
The event will be in Bath, Ohio, between Cleveland and Akron, five miles south of the Ohio Turnpike and Route 77, meeting at a private home, two miles from the edge of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. If some visitors want to camp by the garden, they are most welcome. Others can stay at local motels. The Hampton Inn, Richfield, OH (1 800 Hampton) is the most popular. Come as early as Friday, 5:00 PM. We usually have coffee & rolls each morning at 10:00 AM to allow for early shooters and late sleepers. We gather again about 5:00 PM to show prints, tell lies and go out to dinner. Sunset shooting is available, but previously showing prints and telling stories prevailed. While you are here the Lady Labradors will entertain with their splashing stick routines. This Fall they have switched to apples and must be frisked for contraband at the door. One regular Apuger will try to convince you that Bacon ice cream is a bit of heaven. When we learn how many are coming we can order a porta potty if there are enough to pay for it by contribution ($110).
We are trying to have a loose organizational shell under which all Apug cats may be comfortably herded. The plan will evolve until the majority are happy and the protesters fall asleep.
All APUGers are welcome. Who is interested in coming? What information is needed?
If you have not been here before please PM me with name, address, phone, email and emergency contact if you do something you shouldn’t have. I will return with directions.
Welcome to the Powers’ house.
Hosts, John & Dolly Powers
