With a large turn out, Eggfest Duluth2012 will be another chance for friends to gather and an opportunity to add new friends under a canopy of autumn color. 

Eggfest Duluth, Sept 19-23, 2012; a gathering for Scamps, other fiberglass trailers and their owners ; will be held at the Buffalo Valley Campground just off I-35 near Duluth, Minnesota.  The Buffalo Valley Campground will begin taking reservations by phone on April 1st at 218-628-7019. They will not be taking reservations online for these dates.  The Campground is offering us a generous priority reservation window until August 15.  Be sure to indicate that you are with the Scamp, Eggfest Duluth, or Fiberglass group when you call. After you register with the campground, please email your name and address information to us at daneca99@yahoo.com.  We’ll be able to email you directly any updates.

The campground is wooded with mature white pine and mixed hard woods, offering us 33 water and electric hook up stations.    Each utility station has 50A, 30A and regular 110 plugs plus a water hook up with two taps.  The owner suggested that folks wishing to be close to one another may share a single utility station. We should be able to accommodate all who wish to join us.  Plan to throw in an extra extension cord,  and whatever adapters you have.  Wi-Fi is available in the Buffalo House restaurant/bar but not promised in the campground.

The fee for a water and electric hook up will be $30 per night tax included.
If you prefer dry camping, ask about using the tent areas, you will still be close to the other trailers.  There are a few full hookup sites, but these are rather separate from the area we are using and are not being held open for us.

Spacious handicapped accessible bathroom and shower  facilities for campers are a short walk. Porta-potties are conveniently located in the campground for those quick-stop moments. The showers do eat quarters.

Planned activities include a craft session, card bingo, pot luck supper, and evening musical socials with popcorn and dried apples. If you have an instrument, bring it along. Even your harmonica or kazoo may fit right in.  Musical urges may arise after you have driven by Bob Dylan’s boyhood home in Duluth.  You don’t have to tell anyone you have an instrument unless you want to, just bring it.

Voluntary  “planned” activities may include trailer tours, hikes, and things we have yet to conceive.   Technical sessions with folks who want to see and those who want to show are never more than a question away.   Bring your questions and problems, you maybe able to find someone who has solved your problem. 

Fall colors should be approaching their peak in northeastern Minnesota in particular along the North Shore providing opportunities for scenic day trips.

Saturday and Sunday are the dates for the Duluth Air Show featuring the Canadian Forces Snowbirds flying team.
