Re: new camp membership
Only hunted out of one multi-member camp and that was back in the early to mid 70s. Was there several times over the years for trout, coupla deer seasons (late), several work parties and a family get together or two. One BIL was a charter member.
Got along well with most, but they had a few deadbeats that fussed if I came and that turned into a ruckus one time when other members defended my being there and ganged up on the deadbeat. I decided to not go back again.
Complex camp rules are okay if everyone sticks to them, but I've had several friends in camps like that and those rules never really solved anything if there a few dingbats that belong and annoy everyone else.
My parents and I went to a friend's large camp up near Hyner Run in the fall, when I was a teen. The member had reserved it far in advance for that weekend, which was the rule.
We rolled in on a Friday night and there was another family there. The two camp members had a heated argument over the deal and it kinda ruined the weekend for everyone.
