District 5 will be holding their campout over Labor Day Weekend in conjunction with the Kitsap Square Dance Club in Gorst. The address is 6800 W Belfair Valley Road, Bremerton.

All members of the Washington Old Time Fiddlers are invited.

The dates are September 3, 4, and 5, 2021.

Campsites are available with power and water.  The fee is $15 per night.  If you plan to bring an RV and use hookups, you MUST call the Wagon Master, Russ Richardson at 360-271-9502 to make a reservation.

Tent camping is available on the grounds free of charge unless you use hookups for any reason.

IMPORTANT!!  If you make a reservation with Russ, please indicate how many in your party.  If you are NOT camping, but coming for meals, please call Kay McCarthy at 360 895-0628 to let her know how many in your party.  This is so we have a good idea how many people we are feeding so we’ll know how much food to buy. KSDA is not doing any potluck this year.  We realize that some people are not yet comfortable with potlucks, and that’s just fine.  All it means is that you will provide your own food.  It is helpful for us to know whether you plan to eat what we provide or eat on your own.

So, here is what the schedule looks like:
