DETAILS

Meals
We are excited about providing tasty and family-style meals that will only add to the relaxation and enjoyment of the weekend. We ask that you help out with dishes and cleanup, but the menu, serving, and preparation will be on us!

Drinks & Snacks
We'll be asking you to join in by bringing some snacks--but see the form to do the initial signup.  We'll get a homemade snack list sent out soon.  Also, use the form to let us know of any dietary considerations we need to be aware of.

Location
We are returning to the same cabin of the past few years on Beaver Lake Arkansas. We'll have lake views in a anything but rustic cabin that sleeps 20.
