Yellowknives Princesses and Yellowknives Guides
Williams invites the
Yellowknives to tent camp on his
property each winter.
Son's are welcome.
Bob and his daughter are past
Yellowknives members. Bob
has a pontoon
boat, peacocks, bunnies, a horse
and the biggest fire logs you've
ever seen. We'll gorge on Jambalaya and Chili to drive away all
the wild animals.
Some history on Bob's neighbor
In 1898, James N. Gamble, of the Procter and Gamble Company and a longtime winter resident of Daytona Beach, bought this land on Spruce Creek for use as a rural retreat. In 1907, he built a small cracker cottage with an open front porch and a breezeway connecting a separate kitchen and dining room, which he named "Egwanulti," a Native American word meaning "by the water." At the same time, he rebuilt an existing packing house to process citrus from his grove.
In 1938, Gamble's son-in-law, Alfred K. Nippert, completed the "Snow White House," a Black Forest style cottage inspired by the Disney animated film classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The house is surrounded by a Witch's Hut, the Dwarfs' Mine Shaft, and an elaborate network of rock gardens. Collectively, these buildings and grounds form a historic landscape now known as Gamble Place. This property was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
The temperature can get down into the upper 20's. So check the weather and come prepared!
Hope to see you there!!
Last year we had nearly all the Yellowknife Princesses

Important Dad's Planning Night
Food: Cost for communal food and PortaPotties is about $65 and
If you commit to attending this campout and do not attend the event, you will still owe the tribal kitty for food that was bought for you.
At Peace River we cooked:
If you or one of you children want something "special" such as a specific cereal, type of mustard, type of hot dog, doughnut, or soft drink, Please bring it along yourself as we will be buying only the "basics", and as always, are trying to stretch the bucks.
If you cannot make the Dads Meeting, but are still intending to camp at Bob's this weekend, PLEASE LET US KNOW WHEN YOU EXPECT TO ARRIVE! (do a reply to all)
