2022 Summer Campout
August 16 @ 8:00 am - August 22 @ 5:00 pm
Official camping dates are 19 to 21 August. Those are the only dates that the chapter is providing food. Our host, Art Goatbe is willing to receive campers outside those dates. Please call him to make arrangements. The meeting will be on Saturday, 20 August 2022.
The suggestion is that if you plan to use a hotel, you should reserve now, because prices are going up.
The following information was provided by Alicia Smith:
These hotels are 15-20 minutes from the campout, and a number of us have been to both in the past …
Super 8 — 2596 Austin Way, West Branch, MI 48661; phone 989-345-8488 (behind the Quality Inn) had military/veteran rate of $102 on website or $113 when I called it in.
Quality Inn — 2980 Cook Road, West Branch, MI 48661; phone 989-345-3505 , rates are high this year … from $188 on website for military/veteran rate to $209 when I called it in asking for cheapest rate. (The woman I talked to said they don’t do military rates on weekend. I call BS on that but didn’t argue with her.)
Currently, both hotels have availability, but I’d suggest we don’t wait till last minute to book. I was going to send a text out to the few folks that I know prefer sleeping in a hotel room but Richard thought you might want to send this info out to the chapter via email.
