The 12th annual GPNDG

The Great Pacific NorthWest Dryside Gather is the 'premier' WetLeather event of the year. It's most often called "The Gather", or less often just the "GPNDG". The Boss this year will be Mark Morrissey.

The 2003 GPNDG will be held at the Simax Group Camp at Crescent Lake, Oregon in the Deschutes National Forest. The campground is located on the NE shore of Crescent Lake just south of Highway 58, and roughly 50 miles north of Crater Lake, OR.

The Gather will start on Thursday night, which is designated "Nostalgia Night". In the old tradition of the earliest Gathers, the evening's repast was cook-your-own-Brats.
