NOTE: This is a BYOB Pitch-In Event. The Indy group has found these to be easiest, cheapest, and fun for everyone many hands make light work, after all. Please bring your own beverages and list quantities youre bringing when you sign up for your pitch in food items - well work on filling in the menu as it gets closer to the dates. Remember well have 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts, and 2 lunches plus snacks. We keep it as informal as possible: cooking most items on grills and fires well dine on picnic-style food - hot dogs, brats, veggies, fruit, chips, salads, sandwiches, etc.
FRIDAY arrivals anytime after 5. Well have a crock pot of sloppy joes available all evening. Fellowship, snacks, smores, and singing around the campfire. If you need airport rides, please let us know as far in advance as possible so we can try to coordinate.
SATURDAY Fish in the early hours if youd like. Enjoy some quiet time with nature as the world around you awakens. Go on Tims Nature Hike, take a boat ride, brave the zip line, visit the horses next door, carve your pumpkin for the contest, challenge someone to a game of corn hole or Frisbee golf. If youre into photography, bring your camera as there will be gorgeous photo opportunities all weekend long. Try your hand at target practice. Bring your favorite book or craft to work on. Well coordinate mass carpools for those that wish to attend Sat afternoon services. End the day with a cookout and bonfire. Bring your musical instrument if you play one share those talents. If you have favorite songs youd like to hear, get those requests in early so our musicians can learn them ahead of time.
SUNDAY Enjoy a cup of coffee while the birds chirp their morning greetings. Carpools worked out for mass. Enjoy a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast. Choose whatever activity youd like to try next, or repeat some of your favorites again. Ride the ATV. Gather a group for a game of volleyball. Depart as your own schedule dictates thats the beauty of this event nothing is set in stone.
RSVP by Friday Oct 7th with your estimated arrival time (do you need help with rides?), pitch in items, your sleep plans (camp in your own tent, sleep in the house, hotel?), and if youre bringing anyone with you.

Hey Tim (et al), Can't message people or post in the forums right now due to my status, so I hope you see this....just want to say "Thank You' for being such a great host(s) and allowing us all to invade that gorgeous 'country getaway' of yours. It is absolutely beautiful but what was most beautiful, absoulutely awesome, was all of the CM'ers that participated...I am so glad I decided to attend! Of course it meant putting off (again!) scraping and painting my house but hey, maybe there is a future CM event in that - a BYOB (bring your own brush) haha. Anyway, I know there are many of you Indy people that planned, prepared and hosted this wonderful event - thanks to all of you for your time, patience, and various other gifts that you shared. God love ya'! (Tim, there is a really cute photo of you and your lovely Regina in my facebook (CM) album. I have a few in my profile here but I don't think that is one of them).

As I reflect on what a wonderful weekend I had at the farm, I feel truly blessed to have met some absolutely fantastic people through Catholic Match! I thank God for bringing these people into my life, for they have enriched it beyond measure! I have been a member of CM for 6 years and have attended quite a few CM events as well as hosting the farm outing the last 3 years. Everywhere I've gone, I've been welcomed and felt at home with my Catholic brothers & sisters. As a single man who just turned 50 and whose kids have been out of the house for 3 years, I've turned to my CM friends to help me through the rough patches over the years. God put you in my life for a purpose, and I am thankful for each and everyone of you! I have grown in my faith as well! ...and the dating portion of this site is working for me too! I met Regina through CM and am determined to become a success story someday! My subscription is up this Saturday and I will be taking a break from CM after 6 years on here. In closing, I'd like to thank CM for bringing so many wonderful people into my life! Stay open to the possibilities, LDR's included, and don't be afraid to take a chance! Follow the path God has put you on for He will lead you to many wonderous things! Peace and Blessings my friends.
