Tri-State (Outdoor) Furmeet becoming a reality!
Opening Ceremonies: 5pm US Central Time on Friday, November 14th
Event end: TBA on Sunday, November 16th
Location: Geode State Park Campground, near Danville, IA
Age Requirements: 18 or older (21 or older to drink)
What to bring: Tent or camper, sleeping bag, warm clothing, fursuits are welcome and I will do what I can to have a headless lounge, and most importantly, common sense.
Activities planned (more may come): Fishing (Iowa license required), Hiking, Cracker Barrel, Storytelling, Capture the Flag, Pot Luck banquet, "Booze Pong" TournamentFEES
I will NOT charge an entry fee myself, however Iowa DNR has set the following fees for camping:
Electric site: $13 per night
Non-Electric site: $8 per night
Shower and Water Hook-up: Add $3 per Night
NOTE: these fees are per lot of the campground so if you have others sharing the camper or tent with you, this would be considerably less expensive. I will also attempt to obtain some extra tents, and possibly a bunkhouse so others may be accomodated too.RESERVATIONS

3. Everyone will be carded before they recieve their badge of entry. If you are under 21, your badge will be vertical instead of horizontal
