A group of Dogsters/Catsters are organizing a meetup in the San Francisco Bay Area to take place Spring 2010. This is a Dogster/Catster member sponsored event, HQ staff are invited and encouraged to attend.

They need to fill their quota for reservations at the KOA campground in order to get the use of the Rec Hall and the large picnic areas for the meet and greet. The deadline is December 1st, so we’re trying to get the word out.

The following is from the Group’s creator, Bonzer:

biscotte563772_1244944426Always wanted to meet your friends and visit HQ to meet the folks behind this great web site at the same time? You’re invited to the Dogster/Catster Meet And Greet In California and picnic in San Francisco/Petaluma area Saturday, April 24th 2010! Join the group fur more information, pawticipate in the planning, and prepare yourself fur the Meet and Greet of the Year! Don’t furget to book your reservations early at the KOA campsite if you’re planning to stay overnight and be sure to mention it’s for the D/C MAGIC Group when you do.

We have reserved a few sites at the KOA Campground in Petaluma for our event, click here for site map.

The reservations are for April 23 and 24 for those of us who will be arriving the night before.

For those of you just coming for the day of the picnic and will not be staying the night at the campground, there is a KOA guest fee of $10 (sorry, I know it was $7 but KOA went up on all their prices for 2010) for adults, $5 kids 4-17. Kids 3 and under are free.

This is what we have reserved right now. We can add to or subtract from this list as needed before September ’09;

17 cabins in block “G”. Each sleeps up to 4 (dogs are allowed) and is $59 per night. The cabins do not have a bathroom but there are some nearby. If you were to share the cabin with a friend that would just be $28.50 (killer deal!)

The cabins have a dbl bed and bunk beds but do not come with bedding (blankets etc)

2 lodges- sleeps 4-6 each has a bathroom but does not allow pets- $160 each

8 full hook up RV sites- $42

10 tent sites- $30 (personally, mom would rather pay twice as much and sleep in a cabin! laugh out loud )

We also will have exclusive use of the Rec Hall and large tent as well as the areas called the “Grove” and “Orchard” for our contests and games.

To reserve a cabin, lodge or other site please call KOA @ (800) 562-1233 and be sure to mention it is for the D/C MAGIC group April 23 and 24.

Please post here which accommodation you will be choosing.

If we get fewer than 10 reservations we will lose the use of the Rec Hall and possibly the tent also.

You could hold off calling KOA and putting the charge on your credit card for a few months but please post here asap so we can tell them how many we expect to reserve.

We have until September before they will stop holding all of these reserved sites for us and all reservations must be paid for by December 1 2009

We hope many of you will be staying a night and help us to turn the KOA Campground into “Dogster/Catster town” for a few days!
