Once again this year the MAS is having campout due to the generosity of members Tom Maxwell and his wife, Toni. They hosted last year in July and it was a great success. This year it's at the new moon time in September on their land in Hiles Wisconsin, which is a little north of Crandon in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest.

We’ll have electricity, water, and a port-a-john available to use. Pine lake is right there. Near to the area is Three lakes which has Three Lakes Winery and they do Winery Tours. Tom says he’ll probably come up with more day time options too.

For those who want to come to the star party but can’t see staying in a tent for the weekend there is lodging within minutes.

Little Pine Motel - affordable rooms within a couple minutes.

A Message From Tom Maxwell

Due to the the mid-September date, mosquitoes will not be an issue, but he will fog if necessary. You should bring a product like deep woods in case. He would like a rough RSVP count to know how many might be showing up. RSVP to the Google Group by sending an email: milwaukeeastro@googlegroups.com. They have a small weber there and a tripod fire pit grate as well as about 6-8 hot dog sticks.

We only really ask that everyone try to bring a dish, a cold salad, hot dogs, chips, brats etc - you know up north chow and clean up after themselves and have fun.
