Our Fall Campout was held at White Pines Campground On Oct. 8,9,10,11

1982. On Friday afternoon Charlie Scheer and Frank McAllister went up to the

camp to set up for the weekend. They decorated their campsites with cornstalks,

bittersweet, pumpkins, etc. for a real Fall

look, and a welcome to

the Kilowatt members. Friday cite we all enjoyed a wine tasting with cheese

and crackers, and ignored the pouring rain.

It rained hard all night, thunder

and lightning. We woke up to a drizzly rain throughout Sat. morning with

clearing in the afternoon. Several members went sightseeing in the afternoon.

Some went to Hitchcock Furniture and others went to the Holiday

Crafts and the Toy Store.

At 4;30 the Wagonmasters went up to decorate the Game Room for our

Pot-lick supper. We hung Halloween decorations up with bright tableclothes,

complete with pumpkins, bittersweet, cornstalks, and streamers. At 6;00 we

enjoyed a most delicious and varied pot luck supper, after which George Peplau

welcomed everyone and asked for volunteers for Our Spring Campout. We then

raffled off the gifts that George Potter contributed.

At 8:00 p.m. most members came back dressed in costumes, which everyone

enjoyed. We took many pictures, and gave out prizes and Trick & Treat Bags

to all.

On Sunday, being a beautiful cool sunny day some of us went to the

Riverton Fair and others Just walked around the campground and built a fire.

Returning to the campsite we found that someone was busy doing exterior

decorating on the Scheer & Peplau Trailers. A few left for home Sunday

afternoon. Monday morning saw another beautiful bright sunny day. A real good

time was had by all.
