Just an FYI Knoebels closes their full operations for the season on Sunday sept 21st. Which also happens to be the first weekend of the Bloomsburg fair. They are open for a covered bridge festival sometime in october but with only certain things running. The same can be said for Oct. 24 they have some kind of Halloween fest but only a few rides like the Pheonix and the haunted house will be running. As for camping I am not sure when they close that for the season.

They list Winter hours on their campground brochure from November to May, so perhaps the campground never really closes...

I'm not sure I'm going to make it on the 10th, too much going on.. I vote for a weekend when JC [coal berner] can be around.

The inertia at rest is too strong! I changed my vote to the next popular one and low and behold we have a tie.... if there is no interest from the masses at least we can have the same old faithful get together. :lol:

Coal berner, when can you make it, we are waiting on you to make a new date!? :P

I just voted for 10/24. Any weekend would be fine for me except 9/27, any other week I plan to make unless a last minute problem arises. Who, what, when, where, do we have anything coming together yet?

Oct 24th & 25th will work for me Here is what I had in mind Meet in Pottsville PA at Ramada In Parking lot Take people
to get coal if there is anyone Friday 24th breakers open 7am to 3pm Or Saturday Early morning Breakers 7am to 12pm
one is open until 2pm Come back to Pottsville Go to Yuengling Tour Then Goto Pioneer Tunnel coal mine tour & Centralia

mine fire Then over to The # 9 Coal Mine & Have a Picnic I will call Mike and set it up If there is no one that needs coal
then we will do Yuengling first then the coal mine tours Here are the links for everything Oh For Those That would like
to stay & camp out There are 2 State Parks very close to Pottsville Pa You can Stay there instead of hotels This is my
take on this Meet & Greet We also can skip Yuengling and every one can go to the coal breaker and then to Centralia
mine fire and onto the Pioneertunnel mine tour The breaker's are very close to it Then To the # 9 Mine tour / Picnic
Ok Every one Speak up

Lots of good ideas JC.

I'm a little ticked at the "Nerd" thing though.

That all sounds good, especially the yuengling tour. :cheers: But what hapened to camping at knoebels? Heck, the camping, camp fire, beer drinking and coal nerd talk around it was the most fun...for me anyway. The 24th/25th is good for me. John, I almost didn't recognize you with that pocket protecter. :lol:
