The 16th Annual Algonquin Adventure Star Party Wrap-up

Submitted by webteam.rascto… on 19 September 2013

The 16th Annual Algonquin Adventure Star Party, held at Mew Lake Campground on September 5 – 8, 2013 had 97 attendees, even though the ‘weather gods’ didn’t co-operate during most of the official dates.  The skies were clear on the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, which is sometimes how it goes.  There were several telescopes set up on Thursday evening and many campers enjoyed some of the wonders of the night sky.

We had our communal campfire each evening with thanks to Mario, for providing dry firewood, tending the fire and keeping us warm.  Thanks also to all who donated firewood, it was much appreciated.  Last but not least, thanks to our long-time friend, Steve, for hosting the communal campfire on his site.

Saturday afternoon we held our Group Photo and Awards presentations on Mew Lake Beach. 

  • Annual Algonquin Moose Awards & Certificates were presented to:  Len Morris, Dana Bagley, Megan Mould, Randy Currie, Blake Nancarrow, Jean Fee, Sandi Tilley, Krys Arciszewski, Krion Vagela & Taylor Criger. 
  • Ten Year Awards & Certificates were presented to:  Fred Lum, Donna-Marie Bonnet, Grace Horvatin & Harold Healy.  These awards are our way to thank all who have joined us for 5 or 10 years. 

We have been organizing and hosting The Annual Algonquin Adventure for the past 16 years and we have met some incredible people and made great friends, but it is time for us to let someone new take it over.   That’s not to say we won’t be camping new moon weekend in September, we will, as attendees not organizers.

It’s been fun, and we thank everyone who has joined us over the years.  Your support has kept us coming back every year.
