Fathers Day Family Weekend

June 19-21, 2009

About 14 families (70ish people) arrived Friday night for a weekend of fellowship, fun and WORK - Big Canyon Style!  Some brought their campers and some stayed in the Lodge.



Saturday morning we ate breakfast and then Brian handed out the "To Do List"...

Some cleaned out, fixed the leaky roof and built shelves in our program shed.

Ahhhh. So nice!



A few men built an outdoor projector screen for the stage.

Another group cleared Thistle and Sagebrush around both sides of the yurt.

Look at all of it!


Once the area was cleared, Brian brought in the backhoe for digging tree holes.

Areas cleared and trees planted. (hard to see the new trees in this pic)



Another group worked on the pergola over the patio.

Ta Da!



That evening we had a Dutch Oven Cook Off! Each family brought an oven and a meal to share. They were all very yummy!
