June 24, 2017 at Hopkins'place in New London, NH
News flash………………plans are in motion for Wyanoke Reunion 2017 – in New London NH. We are looking at the weekend of June 24 & 25 as the dates for this special event.
New London is in central NH; just off I-89 (exit 11). NL is about 40 minutes north of Concord; and 30 minutes south of Lebanon/White River Junction.
The Hopkins’ “Windy Top” family home is there; with a fantastic view of Mt. Kearsage and also Ragged Mountain. We have 2.5 acres of primarily open land so there ample room for parking (Blues - free; Grays - $25.00), marching, hammock lounging, drone flying, wandering and general loafing around. Corn-hole and croquette will also be available. We have a prime campfire site as well; with almost 180° night sky viewing.
The yard can manage a few motor homes,
tents or pop-ups if so needed. No hook-ups, however.
Pets will be welcome; as our 2 labs Bear
(9) & Paddy (4) will be with us that weekend.
There are several local lodging options;
Follansbee Inn, Sutton NH (3 miles from the house; basically a B&B so
The New London Inn, New London NH (1
mile; full dining room)
The Fairway Motel, New London NH (0.5
mile; no food services)
The Inn at Pleasant Lake (2 miles)
I am disheartened to advise you that the four hotels I so
carefully researched are all full that weekend; there is some event
taking place in the area and so everything that is very local seems to
be fully booked. Best to check with them, you never know what might open

Wyanoke History: 1909 - 1945
Bob Fox's history of Wyanoke to 1945 is in the pipeline, and we plan to have it available by the reunion in June.Some editing and layout are all that's left.
Photographs of Wyanoke and Pictures of Camp Memorabilia Are Still Needed!
Bob Fox has asked that I send out a request for pictures of Wyanoke from 1909 through 1945. He has put together a history of Wyanoke through that period, to be printed in hard copy.
If you have physical photographs you can send copies of them to Tom Falcon at P. O. Box 1718, Wolfeboro, NH 03894. Or, better yet, scan whatever you've got and send them to me, Mike @ Wyanoke.com (or upload them to Google Docs, DropBox or whatever suite your needs, and send me the link) and I'll take it from there.
Also,If you'd like a copy of this history of Early Wyanoke
Please send me an email (Mike @ Wyanoke). They plan to go to print in the next couple of months, and they'd like to get a preliminary idea of how many to print. Price, etc. is TBD.
The 2015 Wyanoke Reunion!
The weekend of June 27, 2015 in Cornwall, PA.
That was a fantastic weekend! The spirit of Wyanoke lived on with easy conversations and reminiscences, music, fine food and drink. The weather didn't cooperate for Saturday - it rained relentlessly and hard all day - so we had to cancel the waterfront activities and stick with wrestling and ping pong.
The picture is of all the Wyanokers who attended:
Back row (L-R): Dave Clemens, Peter Wood, Alan Neagle, Rick Tjader, Dave Ayars, Bob Nickels, Pat Freeland, Dave Bentley, Doug Wilkins
Front Row: Bob Vaughan, Charley Lax, Katie Vaughan-McNulty, Tom Falcon, Mike Freeland
Dave Bentley wrote a very nice encapsulation of the mood of the weekend in the New Council Room forum, HERE. (Scroll to the bottom.)
Pat also wrote a Log for the reunion, which will get posted there soon.
The Golden Arm!
