Phoenix Phall Phunfest at Knoebels Amusement Resort, Elysburg, Pennsylvania

Coaster enthusiasts across the globe know that when the leaves begin to turn colors and the days get cooler it means that Knoebels Phoenix Phall Phunfest is right around the corner!  So get out your tents and costumes and make the annual pilgrimage to Elysburg Pennsylvania to join friends and family for some good food, fellowship and oh yeah...coasters.

Camp RRC has been a feature for years now and Todd Long, Walt Bremeier, Sandy Nicholyason and myself have been the "Camp Counselors" for the past few years.  That means we get there early, setup the campsite, answer campers questions, cook dinner and breakfast and have a great time.

Here's Walt after he kicked off Camp RRC with the traditional "falling on one's ass after climbing a ladder to put up the banner".  Camp RRC is located in a corner of Knoebels Campground and this year we had our largest showing yet!  I think we squeezed over 20 tents back there and had  a great time.

How many coaster enthusiasts does it take to put up a banner.....well from left to right there's Coasting Steve, Me, Bond, Walt's roommate, Walt, Keith Hopkins and the infamous Todd Long.  The day before Phall Phunfest is IMHO the social event of the year...the Camp RRC Cookout.  Todd manned the grill, Walt cooked the best chicken I have ever tasted, and everyone sat around, ate more than we should and had a great time talking with old friends as well as new ones!  If you're new this is the best place to go to meet other enthusiasts because everyone is welcome and everyone is family.

After the long night of fun and feasting everyone anxiously awaits the emergence of Fred to see if it will be a good day to ride coasters.  Well Fred saw his shadow meaning  that there would be plenty of rides for everyone.  There was much rejoicing.
