New this year is the Pinewood Teardrop Gravity Races! Participants build
a car or car & trailer from Pinewood Derby kits and race them down a
double-long gravity track for prizes and bragging rights, so grab a kit or
two and start carving! For those really adventurous & crafty, we'll have
an "Unlimited" class where almost anything that will fit on the
track can run. For more info, view the topic on the T&TTT Discussion

The "Friday Night Dutch Oven Sampler" returns, again, and since
the last two year's "Next Cast Iron Chef" festivities were such
a hit, we will continue it, as well. So all you D.O. aficionados, be ready
to cook your hearts out! And the rest of us will come taste what it's all

for accompanying dishes. If you wish to contribute to the huge over-the-fire
chili pot, your contribution must be freshly prepared or canned. (Please,
no "hot stuff") This is when we all gather together around a huge
campfire for fun, fellowship, and food. We have a huge "Dutch Raffle",
hand out awards, enjoy the feast, and have a rousing old-fashioned what-we've-come-to-be-known-for "Dam
Children have always been welcomed, and encouraged (they are our next generation

And, there is much more in the works! You are not going to want to miss
NOTE! All campsites are on a first-come-first-serve
basis - no reservations.

The Dam Gathering has always been about Teardrop
Trailers and the people who love them ... ALL
teardrop enthusiasts are welcome! If you're
building one and it's towable, bring it! If you're just interested in teardrops,
come in/with whatever, and we'll park you around the edges. Vintage Trailers
and cool "Tiny Trailers" have always been welcome, too, but please
understand that they'll be expected to park separately.
