Save The Date: GO Gathering August 22-24

Welcome to our premiere camping weekend! 

The largest camping gathering for GayOutdoors, GO Gathering welcomes gay outdoorzy men of all ages and abilities to New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest at Branch Brook Campground near Waterville Valley. This year it will be held later in the summer season at a new riverside group campsite along the Pemigewasset River where we can swim/tube right from our site! Registrants are asked to pay $35 to attend if they are a full member, $45 if they are a guest member, or $10 if they are staying somewhere else and want to participate in our activities.

This is an action packed weekend suitable for all, designed to have a bit of everything to give you a chance to try something new or to just enjoy your favorite outdoor pursuits. Activities in the area include hikes at all levels [Welsh/Dickey, Mt. Osceola, Mts. Lafayette/Lincoln]; tubing, swimming and recreational kayaking in the Pemigewasset River; swimming/water slide at Franconia Falls, ziplining with Alpine Adventures, biking on the Franconia Notch bikepath, taking the Cannon Mt. Aerial Tramway to the summit, etc.   We hope that members will step forward to post some of these trips for this weekend! We'll have a huge tent canopy with tables/chairs underneath for meals including the Saturday night potluck, a Beer Blast, nightly campfires, and fireworks.

Boasting world-class mountain sports, legendary above treeline trekking, and stunning views, Waterville Valley is the gateway to the White Mountain National Forest hiking/camping scene. Fancy doing something different on a summer weekend? Don't waste it shopping ~ escape from the city and get up to the national forest with GayOutdoors' GO Gathering.

This is our 12th year, our biggest annual event and members say it is THE event to attend. Participating in GO Gathering is not only fun, but rewarding, too. It's a special treat for newcomers and a summer favorite to returning members. It's a weekend for making new outdoorzy buddies and catching up with friends. We'll have campfires, a Friday night Beer Blast kick-off party, tubing/swimming along the Pemigewasset River, outdoorzy activities; and a huge Saturday night potluck with music, great food [you'll be amazed at the culinary talents of members using grills and camp stoves], and fireworks.

It's easy to see why GO Gathering has become our premiere camping weekend. Grab your camping and outdoorzy gear and join us: GO Gathering is calling! We'll have registration information posted in the future but for now reserve this weekend in your calendar so you can attend.
