I need a vote on this by next Sunday, once we know where I'll put it up for vote of when. The hunting cabin will be available any of the last 3 weekends in June, the name is El Rancho and it's located in Noxen. There's acres there and it's situated right on the edge of PA state game lands. It's about 1/2 hour from the Wilkes-Barre exit off of I-81.

It's $300 and that includes the cabin that has 24 bunks, electric, gas, sewage etc. In the map above is the cabin, off to the bottom right is the pavilion under some tree cover and that can easily hold 100 people very comfortably. It has a big kitchen with grills etc. It's a big facility and there will be no problems accommodating us, they have done much larger parties here. As far as the bunks go I'm going to offer them to the moderators first and other long term members that plan on attending, after that it will be first come first serve. The field in the bottom of the photo is the gun range, you'll be able to set up tents and/or small pop up type trailers there. Really large trailers will not be a good idea. I'll state it again there will be no shooting of guns if we use this facility.
There is hotel a very short distance from this location but they are just reopening it and as I understand it and it's not cheap. There is numerous motels and hotels near Wilkes-Barre. If you're coming from New York depending on where you're at a more direct route for example from Corning is to follow the river down. There is numerous motels heading in that direction becsue of the NG industry.
The other option is for Knoebels, which has already been discussed. It's a really nice idea but there is no alcohol allowed there.
