If you want to pick up coal you can get it at The Fireplace Gallery which is less than 10 minutes from where the party will be. He sells Reading Anthracite in bulk or bagged. Keep in mind Dan is not a breaker and this is lot less than what he normally charges.

This will be held on Saturday, September 27th at a private hunting cabin near Noxen, PA. which is the same place I had it last year. Here's Dave from LL getting ready to fire up his demonstration furnace, perhaps this year we may actually be able to use the heat. Turn out was lower than I had hoped but we all had a good time, I expect a much better turn out this year with the Fall date. If you have a product related to coal you're more than welcome to attend, shake some hands, show it off, etc.
It's about a 30 minute drive from either I-81 off the Wilkes-Barre exit or the Tunkhannock area. Map Link
The property includes plenty of parking, a large pavilion with a large kitchen, plenty of ground and a cabin. The cabin has a bar, living room, small kitchen etc. Even in the event of rain I can accommodate 100 easily and probably as many as 200. If you want to stay the night into Sunday you can but you'll need to bring your own accommodations like a tent etc. There is a limited amount of room for a few pop-up trailers, PM me if you want to bring one.
The costs are as follows and are subject to change, they may go down depending on the amount of money I get through sponsors. I'll be taking no profit from this and anything left over will go to a good cause or something of that nature.
- If you just want to stop in for a few hours there is no charge.
- If you are going to stay the whole day/night and bring your own food it's $5 per adult and kids are free.
- If you are going to eat I'll provide food from about 1 until at least 6 or 7 so you can count on two meals. After that your on your own but any food that is left and the cooking facilities will still be available. I'll be getting burgers, hot dogs, chicken and something else like a london broil or perhaps smoke some pork. There will also be salads, chips, treats for the kids etc. It will be $15 for one adult, $10 each additional adult. If you are bringing any kids you'll have to figure out yourself what you think is fair. If it's toddler then $0, if it's 16 year old 175 pound linebacker then it's double.... .. I'm kidding.
This is from last year, you will not go home hungry.
All monies will be collected at the event. I'll be creating a poll about week or so beforehand to gauge how many people will be there so I can get the right amount of food.
Drinking water will be provided, otherwise It's BYOB and alcohol is allowed. There are refrigerators but I can't guarantee space is available so be sure to bring a cooler for your own drinks and food. Any glass, bottles, cans or other recyclables have to go home with you. Try and leave as little garbage as possible.
If you want to stay at a hotel room there is a small but really nice hotel right near the cabin called the Beaumont Inn about 10 minutes away, the rates are $99+. Right now they have a vacancy for all ten rooms but be aware that is the height of their wedding season so book early if you are interested. If you book a room there let me know because if enough people do I can probably get a discount. In addition there is numerous motels/hotels about 1/2 hour away near I-81 and Tunkhannock.
Coal should be available at all the breakers, unless it's noted here call ahead to make sure about availability and hours they are open. Close by locations include The Fireplace Gallery which is only about 10 minutes from the cabin so it's very convenient, they are not a breaker but they were able to offer a really good price last year. He has both bulk and bagged and he'll even open on Sunday if you are staying the night and wanted to get it before heading home. The closest breaker is Hudson Anthracite and would be on the way if you are coming from I-81 heading North or South. As the time for the event approaches I'll have information on pricing etc. If you are coming any distance you can make it worth the trip or at least pay for the gas.
Here is map to the cabin, I will have signs up and no one had any trouble finding it last year.
