The MDFI Swag Store will be open here as well.

Saturday Night

SLOC Members and their families are more than welcome to camp on the property Saturday night. There is no electric / water, but we will have a couple port-a-johns. (There will also be drinking water on site). Please plan accordingly and make sure that you can survive without running a generator for a night so not to disturb other folks. (Power for cell phones, etc is available at the clubhouse but there are limited outlets…but hey, you’re at a party so get out of the Matrix for a day or two!) The club goes back to, “Normal operation” at Noon on Sunday. 


We cannot have any animals aside from previously-approved certified working animals on property due to past experiences. Our upfront apologies to those that might not be able to attend for that reason. 


Please see “Attendee Options” above. 


For those that have questions after reading all of this, all good! Shoot us an email at SLOCrange@gmail.com and we will get you squared away!
