We spoke to Sherri last weekend while camping at Tall Pines. She has informed us that we will be her test subjects for her new state of the art BINGO machine.

There will be prizes for the winners like in years past.
We would like everyone that is interested in attending please bring up to the tent either a bottle or two of wine from your region or a sampling of craft beers from your region. Any form of spirits are welcome, and yes even shine...
We will set up tables in the tent for everyone to sample the offerings. The tables will be covered in paper that you can write on and let everyone know who and where the items being sampled are from.
Feel free to bring a festive sampling Glass or Goblet..but we will also supply plastic cups on each table.
We are also open to you all bringing up a snack for others to enjoy. We are sure that after a few samples you all will want a bite to eat, maybe even soak up the spirits.
