How to get there:
WOODLANDS CONFERENCE CENTER AND CAMPGROUNDS
318 S. Sage Lake Road
Hale, MI 48739
(in Ogemaw County near the Iosco County line)
Take I-75 (North or South depending on where you are coming from) to M-55 exit #215 (to West Branch). Go East on M-55 (thru downtown West Branch) 17 miles to F-19/Sage Lake Road (CITGO Gas Station on the corner). Go North about 4 miles until you see an archway over a driveway on the West side of the road that says: "THE WOODLANDS"
The GPS coordinates of the campgrounds are:
And the GridSquare is: EN84ah
We will make every attempt to have a talk-in station on the 146.94 repeater. But with such a long event
and no idea when people will be arriving, it would be impractical to make someone sit at a talk-in station when
there are so many things they could be doing. But we will do our best to have someone within earshot of a rig in case you need assistance.
