This is it Gentlemen!! The weekend after Cat Attack! Cut loose for a weekend at camp Kamloops. Considered by many to be "Hallowed" ground steeped in rich family tradition, Kamloops is celebrating it's 65th year. We are a private organization/campground however membership is open to everyone. This is the one weekend a year where Kamloops is turned from a family atmosphere to a huge weekend party, known as the "Convention"(Sorry Lady's, this is a men only weekend, and for many of us our only chance to get away from you all year! Hahaha) The past two years Convention has been cancelled due to the low water level, this has only happened one other time in 1976. El Nino has served us well and we are back in business!

The camp is located on the Mc Cloud arm of Shasta Lake and is not accessible by car. You will need to either have a boat available or call when you are close and either the barge, or I or one of the other infamous "Black Shirts" will come pick you up for a ride across the lake. Once in camp, we have a private dock, showers, flush toilets, electricity and many other amenities you might not expect from a "boat in" campground.

The pick up spot is the Hirz Bay boat ramp, which is off of Gilman Rd, which intersects with Hwy5.

Provided is an open bar 24-7(Since it's a private party, ABC laws don't pertain) and all the food you can eat.

There is a fishing derby every day, a horseshoe tournament, poker games, a driving range, the world famous "Fingerling Olympics" and a lake with 365 miles of shoreline to play on. If you have a boat bring it! If not, our private cove and dock offers a great opportunity to float around, swim and fish.

What you need to bring:

-Sleeping Bag
-Clothes
-Money for registration
-And thick skin :stir:

I'll be leaving Thursday morning and coming home Sunday. It costs $260 which includes 7 meals a day and an open bar 24-7 for three to four days depending on when you come up. If anyone is interested feel free to call me, 925-360-6711, text me or leave a VM.

I've been going to Kamloops for years with family as well as convention. This is a great camp spot that I will be going to for years to come. I miss not being able to go the last 2 years because of the drought. I'm sure this year is going to be off the hook.:)devil
Thanks Adam for the invite and the opportunity to be a kamlooper.
Hell, that's like 8 years ago. :weirdo: IMG_1178.jpg

If I don't go to LA to grab my boat, I will be at Kamloops! I'm going to need hard liquor, a spatula, emotional support, and most likely bail money.
