I have some good news for everyone who disliked going to the downtown Sizzler for the monthly luncheon: we are changing the venue because the downtown Sizzler has been closed for business.

I also have some good news for everyone who LIKED going to Sizzler for the monthly luncheon: February's luncheon will be held at...

wait for it... 

ANOTHER SIZZLER!

l called and spoke with Frank, the General Manager of the Sizzler on Redwood Road earlier today and made a reservation for Atheists of Utah for this coming Sunday.

Because we were forced to change the venue, and because it is Super Bowl Sunday, I did not book a speaker. This will be a casual dine & chat for whoever would like to attend. 

Our arrangement at the other Sizzler was that they would charge all of our members a gratuity when you ordered your meal. Frank said he will NOT be doing that, so please be sure to leave a GODLESSLY generous tip before you leave.

I won't be attending, so please let me know what you think of the new venue so we can plan accordingly for March.

Thank you,

Dan Ellis
President
Atheists of Utah
Monthly Luncheon: Trying a New Venue
Sun, February 2, 11:00 AM MST

~*~ PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ~*~

It is time once again for our annual camping trip! This year we will be trying out the Wolf Creek Campground located on the summit of scenic Wolf Creek Highway.

Atheists of Utah will provide a group breakfast Saturday morning, a light continental-type breakfast on Sunday, and FUN FUN FUN!!

Please bring WATER, FIREWOOD, SUNSCREEN, FOOD/SNACKS for Friday night and Saturday lunch/dinner. The group site has picnic tables, campfire circles, grills, vault toilets, and drinking water available. It also has an amphitheater in case anyone would like to put on a show and re-create the crucifiction (<-- not a typo). Additionally, the 3.5-mile Trail Hollow Trail begins in the campground and offers great hiking into the West Fork of the Duchesne, offering unparalleled views of the surrounding Wasatch Range.

This event will be mostly geared toward adults. People will be staying up late, drinking and talking. Please be responsible and aware if you are bringing anyone under 21.

Please NO dogs.

Those who do not wish to camp are welcome to come up for the day and hike and enjoy the festivities. Please be aware that the campsite is in a fairly remote area, so please drink responsibly and/or designate a driver.

**For any non-members who are joining us, we are asking for $15/day to help us cover the cost of the campsite and supplies we're providing. We won't be able to take credit cards at the campsite, so please bring cash with you. If you'd like to take care of it ahead of time, you can visit the "Donations" page on the Atheists of Utah website at http://atheistsofutah.org/home/donations-2/ and click on the "MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD. DONATE TODAY!" link to make a one-time donation to cover the cost of the number of days you plan to stay. Please note in the Special Instructions area that your donation is for the camping trip.

Alternatively, if you'd like to join Atheists of Utah (which you can also do through our website at http://atheistsofutah.org/home/membership-2/), you can come to the campout for free as one of the benefits for our members. Membership money goes toward helping us participate in and provide supplies for many great events like this.

CAMPGROUND INFO: 

Wolf Creek Campground is located on the summit of scenic Wolf Creek Highway at an elevation of 9,400 feet. Visitors enjoy hiking Trail Hollow with its beautiful mountain views.

The campground is situated among dense stands of pines, which offer plentiful shade. Aspens dot the landscape. Colorful summer wildflowers fill the mountain meadows on the summit and wildlife is abundant in the area.

The 3.5-mile Trail Hollow Trail begins in the campground and offers great hiking into the West Fork of the Duchesne, offering unparalleled views of the surrounding Wasatch Range.

An amphitheater sits above the campsite and has a cement stage, wood benches, and a campfire circle.

ROUGH SCHEDULE:

Friday Afternoon/Night – Arrive at camp site and set up camps. Plan to prepare your own dinner and have a fantastic time drinking and socializing with everyone.

Saturday Morning – AOU will be providing a breakfast of pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and other potential goodies.

Saturday Afternoon – Some of us may explore a few hiking trails in the area. Others will hang around camp and enjoy the fresh air.

Saturday Night – Plan to prepare your own dinner and then enjoy the campfire, libations, and company.

Sunday Morning – AOU will provide a continental style breakfast of fruit, muffins, etc. while we take down camp and pack up to head home.

WILDLIFE:

We are camping in wildlife territory. We don't want to encourage any wild animals to come into our camp and we don't want to get any of them killed if they eat our food. PLEASE be sure to secure all food, alcohol, coolers, and other enticing items inside a vehicle before you go to bed each night. Please put your stuff away before you get too tired or otherwise incapacitated. This will avoid having other people do it for you late at night as we all go to bed. Failure to follow this rule may result in a serious tongue lashing and the possibility of being banned from future camping trips. So just do it, mmm-kay?
