I'm in the process of organizing a Star Wars group camping trip and would like to invite SFFF members to join us. So far we have RL and 501st members attending, and I think it would be great if we could have add Fan Force and have a great camp out together. As of this time, it sounds like we'll be camping the nights of June 11 and 12. That would mean arrival on Friday, June 11 and leaving on Sunday, June 13. Of course, the length of time is optional - if anyone would like to come for just one night that would be fine as well. For those who aren't into camping, there is also the option of coming out for a day trip. We're looking at going to Henry Cowell Redwood State Park. The park is located in Felton, just north of Santa Cruz. It's a large and gorgeous park with plenty of fantastic redwoods - just like Endor! There is some really fabulous hiking. I believe the campground itself is in a chaparral section of forest, rather than redwood, but just a little hiking (or driving) gets you to some fabulous redwood areas. Some of the RL and 501st members are planning to stage some Endor photoshoots at some point. I'm looking forward to hiking, checking out the river, and having some good cookouts and campfires. Another activity option is the Roaring Camp train, which leaves from nearby and goes through the forest down to the beach by the Boardwalk. Cost is $35/night per campsite, with a maximum of 8 people per site. The actual cost per person per night will of course depend on how many people attend. Very roughly, the basic cost will vary from $5-$8/night /person. This is just for the site; I don't have info yet on reservation fees or whether they charge park entry fee to campers. If you are interested in joining the camping event, please post here. I'm hoping that we will start making reservations soon.
