    With the news of the Maryland State Shoot returning to the Thurmont Club in 2012, I was wondering if anyone can tell me if there are going to be camping sites for trailers located on the club grounds ?

    We are excited about the event moving back to Thurmont, and would like to camp there - if possible. Any factual information / details would be greatly appreciated.

    The best camping during the Maryland state shoot is in Ohio at the Cardinal Center. Bad timing to have the Maryland state shoot and Ohio state shoot at the same time. You will not have to worry every time it rains if your camper will still be there.

    I have been to Ohio, as recently as 2 weeks ago. It is indeed a premier facility, and camping there was very enjoyable. HOWEVER....................
    I believe I asked if anyone had information as to whether there would be sites available at Thurmont for the 2012 Maryland State Shoot.
    Any other comments and /or opinions about the elevations or water levels in Thurmont OR Marengo are not relevant to my question.
    And there will always be State Shoots that overlap one-another. We are all free to decide which to attend.

    Thanks, Danny870. Now if I can get a contact name or phone number, I will try to make my reservation.

    Sorry Mr Kelly...no offense meant..I know a lot of great folks are making Thurmont the best it can be and cant wait to shoot there again myself...the picture I saw was one taken after a vicious storm that would have flooded anywhere low...just noted cuz it was one of those scenes from Mother Nature doing nasty things that leave you in awe and feeling puny...we've seen many more just this week..accept my apologies..Cal
