NorthEast Conclave 2017

When: 30 May - 04 June 2017
Where: Wilmington Notch Campground, Wilmington NY
Hosts: and

Mark your calendars and start hoarding your Lagavulin, the 2017 conclave season will be here before we figure out where this year's conclave season went. This NorthEast Conclave will be held in the Wilmington Notch of the Ausable's west branch, in the beautiful high peaks region of the Adirondack mountains. As usual, you'll hear the roar of the river behind camp, hear the buzz of insects around late-night fly tying lanterns, taste camp food that can't be beat, and be entertained by the Canadian Boys (and Girl) Choir. You can even watch trout laugh at you from River Road pulloffs. We'll pass a good time, so make your reservations and start waterproofing your raingear. Oh, we'll also (hopefully) be holding the annual Wild Bill Morris Non-Invitational Golf Tournament, so waterproof your golf clubs as well.

As many of you know, our dear friend and fellow conclaver Paul Schlote died in September 2016. We're dedicating this year's conclave to Paul, and will have a special presentation in his honor at the Saturday evening gathering. Rest in peace, Paul. We miss you.

Below you'll find potentially-useful (and possibly outdated) links for campground info and reservations, license info, etc. Please let me know when you've made your reservations and holler if you have any questions not answered by the links below.

We look forward to seeing you all this spring, or at least in late May (whichever gets here first)
